Great price, great VR experience
The Oculus Rift S has been refined to deliver built-in room-scale tracking, new Touch controllers, and internal spatial audio.
I'll try this, I'll give it a spin. Will be my first Half Life game since I barely played a bit of the first one, bored me to death.
I've already booked myself in to the hospital to sell my third kidney, and I've pre-ordered a vr headset and the game with the funds. Just need a computer now, and I'm all set.
I took a 2 year break from VR because of lack of compelling content but I just dusted off my Odyssey in anticipation of giving Alyx a whirl. I didn't like the Half Life game I tried 10+ years but I hope I like this one.
