Feeling like I'm tempted to buy this even though I already have a PSVR.

What's it actually like on PC, does this work with Steam games or do you have to buy stuff through Oculus?

Bit of both, but there is an absurd amount of content out there, just go for it.

I just did the tutorial with the robot but it was very impressive :mrgreen: :shock: The screendoor effect was very noticable when I started but I soon stopped caring and was amazed at the whole new world :wub: The gun made me immediately think of Metroid so I'll be tinkering with Dolphin VR at some point. Half-Life 3 will be amazing in VR :toot:

I'm going to take a break to play Splatoon and get back to reality but I've got Echo Arena and Robo Recall ready for later :toot: How do I starting using Steam VR with the Rift?

I'll have to buy that so I'll try it after I work through the games that I already have. Robo Recall is fantastic and a good indication of how Doom VFR will work. Hopefully Descent Underground and Waltz of the Wizard are as exciting :toot:

If you do go for it there's a mod for it that adds native support for the Vive:
https://github.com/LibreVR/RoboRevive
(despite the name it doesn't actually use Revive)

I'm not sure exactly how it's different to simply playing it through Revive (haven't played it myself), but I imagine the controls are more refined since you're no longer emulating the Touch controllers with the Vive controllers, which can be a bit wonky in my experience.
