At this point I'm pretty wary of

1. VR Kickstarters

2. Any third party movement solution.

Tons of VR Kickstarters were fully funded and then never released or still waiting on a release. Meanwhile companies like Oculus and HTC went ahead and provided their own solutions (specifically with motion controllers). Omni-treadmills were popular for a while but never caught on.

If you're really interesting in something like this I would wait until they actually have it for sale and see how the VR community at large reacts to it. There are just SOOOO many smash and grab VR kickstarters...

I sold mine via Facebook Marketplace locally for $325, but that was last month before the Rift S had a release date. I'm not sure what they are selling for these days.

Oculus has opened up pre-orders for both the Rift S and the Quest. Each headset costs $399 and will ship May 21st. You can order from Amazon, Best Buy, Microsoft Store, and probably Oculus themselves.

Meanwhile Valve released details on their Index headset. It will cost $999 for the headset, controllers, and tracking stations.

Personally I've already put my order in for Rift S and Quest!

The Oculus Rift S is an upgrade to the original CV1. It has inside-out tracking, meaning that you don't need outside sensors. It also has an upgraded screen and a halo design for improved comfort. It will sell for $399 and is rumored to be coming out at the end of the month.

The Oculus Quest is a STAND ALONE headset that also has inside-out tracking and does not require a computer. It has a similar screen to the Rift S but lacks the halo design. It will also sell for $399 at the end of the month.

Both headsets also come with redesigned Touch controllers and Passthrough+, a technology that allows you to see your area even while the headset is still on.

Personally my plan is to get both headsets. There were be many games that are cross-buy, meaning that if you get it for one headset, you can play it on both. I've already sold my original Rift and will use that money to purchase the Rift S. My birthday is also at the end of the month so I'll probably use my birthday money to get the Quest. Since I go out of town for months at a time, the Quest is a perfect way to keep playing VR when I'm away from my computer!

While the Rift S is more of lateral upgrade than a 2.0, I feel the screen and not having to use sensors is worth the purchase - especially since my sold Rift will cover most of the cost. Anyone else plan on getting the Rift S or Quest?

I've been looking forward to Nostos, crossing my fingers it'll be a good VR title.

Nostos link:
That looked very cool until I saw that servers will be capped at 20 players max. I guess it's more like a pretty VR Rust than an MMO.

Also I should note that 258 weapons have not been released yet.

Non-VR Games / SWTOR 5.10 Gearing
« on: January 07, 2019, 06:42:13 pm »
We jumped back into SWTOR again. This is a quick and dirty guide for gearing end-game. This is mostly for Broin since he probably needs the help! =P

Best gear in the game is 252 and 258 gear (Ossus gear). The command crate system isn't that helpful for this gear, though I imagine when they release future gear this gear will get thrown into the crate system. You need to focus on...

1. Ossus Reputation
2. Masterwork Crystals
3. Unassembled Components

Ossus Reputation

You need this because there is reputation requirements for all the best gear in the game. You'll need Hero and Legend rank for the best.

Do the dailies on Ossus (heroics as well). After about three days you'll have maxed your reputation for the week (2500). You can keep going if you want and get a reserve of reputation tokens or you can start focusing on other weekly tasks. Pretty simple. The last tier (Legend) takes three weeks to get after you reach Hero. Don't skip a week.

Masterwork Crystals

You need these to buy the gear. I actually suggest saving Masterwork Crystals for 258 gear UNLESS you're having trouble randomly getting the last few pieces of the 252 set.

You get one crystal from the Ossus world boss weekly. Do the Ossus world bosses each week.

You get one crystal from a random Ossus weekly (either PvP or PvE). Last two weeks have been complete four master flashpoints. Do this each week.

You can get 1-2 additional Masterwork Crystals by trading in Unassembled Components to a vendor. The first one of the week costs 500. The second one costs 1000.

The max number of Masterwork Crystals you can get each week is 4. Your goal should be to try and get 4 Masterwork Crystals a week.

Unassembled Components

As I just mentioned, these are used to buy Masterwork Crystals. You get these by dissembling gear in the Command Crate window and by doing various dailies and weeklies. The quickest way to get Unassembled Components is by doing PvP. Warzones will be the easiest to get. I've found ranked arenas to be significantly harder, but I just started trying them. In between queue pops or when you need a break, you can grind command xp for the boxes (I'd mention the method of doing this, but the event ends on the 15th and then I'll have to figure out what to do from there).


The week resets on Tuesday morning. Each week start by completing the Ossus Dailies/Weeklies. One of these weeklies will give you an 252 Artifact Lockbox. Try to get most of your 252 gear from these boxes and then upgrade them with your Masterwork Crystals. There is a RARE chance of 252 artifact boxes dropping from command crates as well, though I'm hearing that's close to a 1/600 chance based on user testing. Do this every day until you hit the reputation cap.

When you finish Ossus dailies, do PvP dailies/weeklies. Look for missions that don't just give command XP but also give unassembled components. Ideally you should be farming 1500 unassembled components a week, but at least do the first 500 to turn in.

That's basically it. If you miss the reputation cap or don't turn in any unassembled components for a week, you put yourself a week behind on gear progression. Save your Masterwork Crystals for 258 gear or until you have no other gear to upgrade to 258 and need to buy a specific 252 piece to continue. Note that the weekly 252 lockbox will give you 125 unassembled components if you disassemble a duplicate, so getting 4 crystals a week becomes a little easier as you get more 252 gear.

Hey man! We've been playing Rocket League and SWTOR lately. I've been playing VR titles more solo, but I'm looking for people to play Echo Combat with!

Yeah, Star Forge. I had to change my name to "Thetbone". Maglorius and Broin are also playing. Got max command rank and working on 252/258 gear! Could use teammates!

I heard Fallout76 is bad so I jumped into SWTOR again instead. LOTS of new content there, so it's scratching that itch. I even got Maglorius and Broin to jump in with me and now we have a guild flagship!

Nope. Playing Echo Combat, Rocket League, and maybe Far Cry 5 if I get the time. Also got suckered into Final Fantasy Brave Exvius on mobile.

Beat me to the punch. I haven't had time to type out a report  yet!

Interesting. It does this without the need for a green screen? The VR title has to incorporate it into their game, however, so compatibility is limited.
