The world's first true VR gaming guild!

Register | Get VR | Check-in

Welcome to the Furious Angels website! This community is devoted to promoting online gameplay with fellow virtual reality gamers. Not only do we provide a place for VR gamers to find others to game with, but we also provide feedback to Oculus and other game developers on what works and doesn't work in this new and uncharted platform that is VR! Please feel free to take a look around, and we hope you'll consider joining our community!

JOINING A COMMUNITY

Virtual reality, by its nature, tends to make people want to share the experience. It's so unique and so real that it really does feel like you are somewhere else. Being in a virtual world that is cut off from everyone can get lonely - you don't even have access to your phone or IM, things you are used to always checking. By joining a community of other VR gamers, you can share your virtual experiences with an online community. Make virtual friends who will give you a good reason to never play "Alone in VR" again! Know where the community is - which servers, which games!

TEAMWORK AND COMMUNICATION

One of the handicaps to gaming in a virtual universe is the difficulty in communication. Typing can by tedious. The easiest solution is voice communications. We have our own Discord server dedicated to our community. You can easily accomplish complex goals or give and take orders with our voice comms. No more peeking out from under your headset to find your keyboard!

NEWS AND INFORMATION

Are you addicted to surfing r/Oculus? Do you find you spend more time looking at VR articles than actually gaming in the headset? Stay up-to-date here as an active community keeps track of what's relevant and what's not! Know about the hottest demos and the best tweaks! Here you can get the support you need while helping others!

VR INTEGRATION

We're taking the first steps towards integrating VR applications into the every day functionality of the guild. Besides using Oculus' own social features, we're always looking at the newest social applications. VRChat, JanusVR, AltSpace, RiftMax...the list will continue to grow!

SHAPE THE FUTURE OF ONLINE VR

Let's be honest - VR is an infant. There is a LOT to learn. We are getting in on the ground floor. By becoming a full member of the Furious Angels, you will get priority on exclusive Betas for online VR games. We plan on working closely with game developers as well as the Oculus devs to provide feedback on what works and doesn't work in VR. Our area of expertise will be online interaction, team building features, ease of use, and other categories that relate to guild-like functioning in online VR. If you've always wanted to help influence the standards of online gaming, now is your chance!

Oculus Quest VR headsets will no longer require a Facebook account.

Quote from: Zuck
As we’ve focused more on work, and frankly as we’ve heard your feedback more broadly, we’re working on making it so you can log in into Quest with an account other than your personal Facebook account. We’re starting to test support for work accounts soon, and we’re working on making a broader shift here, within the next year.

It's still unclear exactly when the change will happen and what it will be replaced with, but you can assume you'll probably still need some sort of "Meta" account. You'll just no longer be required to tie the account to a social media account like Facebook.

If you already have an Oculus account, you can get a Quest headset without fear of eventually needing to link a Facebook account to it (2023 WAS the deadline). If you don't have an Oculus account, however, currently a Facebook account is still needed to create a new one. This will eventually change - we're just not sure when.

Today was the start of Oculus Facebook Meta Connect.

Most of it was talking about their dream for the Metaverse and how they plan to connect people in VR, AR, and a mix of both and create everything you think of when you think of the Metaverse. All of this is 5-10 years away, though they do have a few launched apps (their Horizon stuff) that is the initial building blocks. They're so dedicated to the cause of building the Metaverse that they are renaming their company to "Meta", so...there ya go. No more Oculus but also no Facebook branding either.

They did tease the launch of a new "high end" headset coming sometime next year, titled Project Cambria for the moment. All we know is it will have face and eye tracking, new optics using "pancake lenses", and additional sensors for a better passthrough that will be in color and allow for Mixed Reality. More details coming next year. They basically said this will be a separate product line that's more expensive that the Quest product line but will have more features.

No real announcements on the AR front other than to say they have a two pronged approach of seeing what they can fit into a glasses form factor now while working on features that they hope to get to a glasses form factor sometime in the future. Their only launched product are glasses that can take pictures and videos and play music (no screen).

The other thing to note is a VR port of GTA: San Andreas which will be coming, I believe, EXCLUSIVELY to the Quest 2 (similar to Resident Evil 4 which was just released). It seems if you want the best of what Oculus Facebook Meta has to offer, you'll eventually have to commit to their product line instead of depending on workarounds like ReVive.

You can now load the 48 GBs of Half-Life: Alyx! The game itself won't be available to play until this Monday at 1 p.m. / noon Central! If you're like me, you don't have anything else to do and are stuck at home anyway! You should be able to play the game on the Rift, Rift S, Quest+Link, Index, and probably a few other VR HMDs as well.
