Oh yeah, I know its not just a normal cable, but even so, it's more than a replacement touch controller.

It is extremely justified with the length and it's fiber optic. Doesn't come with an adapter for USB A though so I'm better off using a cheap one as any benefit will be lost anyway.

Currently using this 8.99 amazon basics beast: https://smile.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B ... UTF8&psc=1

I see Valve have added a notify me button for the Index.

There seem to be a few VR games in the steam sale as well. Nice.

Yeah I've already subbed to the Notify Me feature. Hopefully doesn't take too long to come back in stock

How much of it is manufactured in, or made of components from, China?

Good point, probably quite a bit now you mention it.

Think of the extra time off you could get to play VR if you got the virus with the headset? Win Win*

Been getting the genuine Elder Scrolls experience playing Skyrim VR today. Spent hours and hours browsing for, downloading, and installing mods, and only managed to get about 20 minutes of play time in. It does feel amazing being in the world once you've got some of the lighting and flora mods on.

Humble VR Bundle!

https://www.humblebundle.com/games/vr-b ... _vr_bundle

£11.50 for 7 games including Superhot, Gorn, Budget Cuts, and more.

Edit: I already own Gorn, so if anyone wants my spare key, OM me.

It's worth it for Gorn alone.

EDIT: SuperHot VR is obviously, also an amazing game. But people shouldn't sleep on Moss either. It's not the longest game (3-4 hours I think it took me), but it's utterly charming and I loved every minute of it.

Man, I keep missing this (or deciding not to get it) when it goes on sale in the PS Store. Really want to pick it up now. There seems to be a free expansion out now, too, that adds an additional few hours of gameplay.

I already have Moss on Quest, but tempted to keep the PC copy for the improved graphics when I eventually get round to upgrading and getting a Link cable.

Actually they probably should.

Moss acts as a great insulator. Putting moss and pine needles over your sleeping bag or camping blanket will keep you cool or warm, whichever you need at the time.

Got to appreciate the effort put in to discrediting a statement there.
