I am reinstalling DSC right now and x-plane 11 is all ready to go. I checked steam and I have about 19 games that are VR ready (I have bought Pavlov, H3 and Beat sabre), I am quite happy there are a lot of games I play that are compatible or have a community mods to use VR. Playing Alien Isolation again may be quite interesting.
Now to wait on a delivery date once the bank holiday weekend is over.
I am aware there are some issue with the controllers and Valve are doing a lot of RMA's for them but I am happy to let you know once I have tried them out if they are worth getting once they have resolved the issues.

I thought my index was going to get here tomorrow however a knock on the door 5 minutes ago and I have my Index. Now to set it all up. I checked my controllers and no click issues so far and they do feel very nice in my hands.
I have played a few thing and I am bloody knackered.
My very brief initial feelings. The HMD feels quit comfortable even after 2 hours of use. The controllers feel really comfortable and just feel part of you with no worry of dropping them, they do have a lanyard for your wrists as well as the hand strap. There are some issues with finger detection where it seems to think my ring finger is my pinky bu I am sure that will be ironed out over time. I do like the speakers as well, they are bloody loud so you have to be careful what the volume is when you start playing a game.
Really easy to set up. Controllers had full charge so I didn't need to worry about those. I did update HMD and controllers which took about 5 minutes all in. I was expecting more of a hassle tbh.
I'm not sure if I posted pics in here (probably) but I mounted the lighthouses on camera grips and extending poles in my room. They're semi permanent, look pretty smart and allow for a bit of wiggle room on setup.
Yeah I bought some and they will be turning up tomorrow along with some of the ball mounts so I can raise them quite high and angle them down a bit.
I am bloody knackered. I think I should play more stuff sitting down and get fit. I may get a steering wheel now as well. No signs of motion sickness but I do need to rest for a while. One think I do feel gets overlooked is watching a movie, it's almost on a par with seeing it on the big screen, I just need some twats talking too loud, some bint on a phone and lots of coughing and spluttering.
