  • SteamVR is beta is available for Linux!

    Though I haven’t gotten it to work yet, it is nice to see that Valve is working on SteamVR for Linux.  I’m looking forward to trying it out.  At the moment it looks like it’ll take a bit of tinkering, but it should be usable in the future. https://github.com/ValveSoftware/SteamVR-for-Linux

  • It’s been a while

    Over the last couple of months I have had a bit of … fun.  My new computer started restarting randomly more and more often until it suddenly wouldn’t start up, it turned out to be a failed BIOS chip on the motherboard, so I have been going through the RMA Process.  Aside from that I…

  • Lots of Minecraft VR News today

    Today 3 Minecraft VR related things happened. The first, and probably the largest one is that the official Minecraft VR version came out today, it uses Minecraft Windows 10 edition, and you need to own a copy of Minecraft Windows 10 edition to play the VR edition.  As an interesting sidenote, if you have the…

  • Rift hardware DRM removed?

    I woke up this morning to some interesting news, it appears that Oculus removed the hardware DRM that they had added to their store in Version 1.4.  If they meant to do this, it’s very nice news, as this should make it easier to use other headsets with Rift games.  It is still recommended to…

  • Yet another … odd Oculus Event

    It has been a while since I posted, there hasn’t really been much news as of late, at least nothing that has caught my attention, except for another ‘Oculus Exclusive’ issue that just popped up earlier today. First of all, Fallout 4 is going to be getting VR support, so far they have been talking…

  • Oculus Oculus Oculus…

    Oculus really needs to learn that irritating their customer base generally isn’t the best way to make their product popular.  Yesterday they released Oculus Home 1.4, which introduced some DRM features that broke a 3rd party ‘hack’ called ReVive, which allows people to run their Oculus games on the Vive, and other OpenVR compatible headsets. …

  • Vive review – one week on

    Well, I have had my Vive for one full week so far, and it is still extremely fun to play on.  I was hoping to have my Oculus so that I could do a comparison of both headsets, but as of right now, I have no info on when it’ll arrive, aside from the ‘estimated…

  • I’m very happy today…

    When I woke up this morning I found out that my Vive will be shipping soon!  I don’t think that I’ve been so happy to see a large charge before…   Too bad it appears that my Oculus won’t be here until May, something must have gone very wrong on their end to be so…

  • Minecraft on the Vive

    Well, someone has ported Minecraft, via the Minecrift mod to the HTC Vive headset.  The motion controls look very interesting to me… Now I’m really looking forward to my Vive arriving, not sure when it’ll happen though.  Thanks to the ‘Sold out’ error that appeared to many people, including myself, when the vive preorders started…

  • Oculus Rift Release day and Windows Upgrades

    Some people are having a lot of fun today as the people who Kickstarted Oculus are receiving their Rifts, sadly I wasn’t one of the kickstarters, it had ended shortly before I found out about it.  It also appears that I’m a bit farther back in the group than i thought I was, my rift…
