Saw on slickdeals earlier that the Farpoint/aim controller bundle is on sale for $64 after code MBLB011618. 

Actually, if you buy through their mobile app and apply that code, you can get it for another 20% off, or $52.  I live in CA so they charged me tax. Total came out to $56 for me (minus another 5% cashback for using Chase Freedom + Android Pay)

I don't want to spend more than $20 on Don't Knock Twice either but I do worry about the "Job Simulator" and "Robinson" effect, in which certain VR games are randomly hard to find after a few weeks due to low print run or whatever other reason. Pulling the trigger on Job Simulator right when it released was easy because it was only $20 to begin with ($16 with Prime) but paying even $32 for Don't Knock Twice is something I really don't want to do. 

 

On a similar note, I've been watching the physical version of VR Karts like a hawk waiting for a price drop, but it's held at $29.99 on Amazon for quite a few weeks now. Ugh.

I've been curious about the Aim Controller with Farpoint, $52 might be cheap enough to get me to grab it.

 

How is the Aim controller with Doom VFR?  I have it arriving from Amazon tomorrow and just planned on playing with 2 Move controllers.  I'm also left handed and know there is no left handed mode in Doom (yet hopefully) so that makes me wonder how the Aim controller would also be.

Sorry, people over at SD are saying that the code is now expired.

You can now get Doom VFR on Newegg for $17.99 at checkout when entering the 40% off code: EMCXEEE57 (deal on the main CAG page).

Compare that to the $23.99 I paid for it on Newegg not more than one month ago. God damn it all to hell.

Front page listings don't last long, so you can also get Skyrim VR for $35.99 with that same code, or the Farpoint VR with Aim Controller bundle for $64.99 (for a limited time).


I grabbed Skyrim with the code. I don’t think I’ll ever play the whole game in vr but I want to at least try it ha.

I noticed Amazon hasn’t had it in stock for some time, only 3rd parties.

I was reading on reddit that it’s supposed to be the superior option, except for a stupid little bug that still shows your other hand on screen (even though you’re gripping the Aim with both hands). You can also use the DS4 for more familiar handling (at the cost of immersion).

:ps4:VR  Doom VFR - $19.99 via Amazon

 

Will make it easier to price match at Target/Best Buy versus Gamestop (most of the time they do PM Gamestop aside from an occasional hiccup).

 

I'll be price matching to Target to save 5% with REDcard.

He could go to the Dollar Store and buy something. Now he paid $20 for Doom + <something> whereas other folks paid $20 for Doom.

He has an idea to save extra, good for him. And he's probably going to Target anyway since he has a Red card.

Does anyone know where I can find Battlefront for cheap so I can play the vr dlc? I guess I should have bought the ultimate edition on psn a few months ago when it was ~$5. I didn’t know I’d be getting a vr back then and I really have no interest in the main game since it’s all multiplayer

You probably already know this, but you don't need the Ultimate Edition to download the VR mission. Just the base edition is fine. I got it for $12 during Black Friday, so I can't help you there (but $5 for UE must have been a steal). If you're only going for the 15-minute DLC, your best bet might just be a used copy. Gross -- I know.

I don’t mind used games at all. I was hoping to find it pretty cheap though, especially since all I want it for is the vr experience. I was going to borrow it from a friend, but it turns out he owns it digitally.

Ok if we are playing “saver topper” then....I am going to buy it at Target, use a red card, but I am going to walk to target to save gas,collect aluminum cans I find on the way, wash windshields for tips at intersections I pass, sell plasma if I pass a blood bank, claim foreign citizenship so I can try to get a refund back on the tax portion, be sure I use the toilet at target so that will be one less flush at home, saving on my water bill, and probably even take some toilet paper and stick it in my pocket for later thus saving money on future toilet paper purchases, and then walk around outside of the store with a metal detector looking for any change that folks might have dropped. Then when my red card bill comes, I am going to file for bankruptcy and get the debt dismissed, so I get the game for free and actually plan on making money with all the activities I described above.

Amazing that someone wanting to save money bothers you so much.  You should get over yourself.  You're just making yourself look like even more of an ass.

He saves an extra $1, doesn't support shitty GS and has the game today. That all sounds like a win to me. Maybe if you're so triggered by savings you should leave this site.

I was sitting here two days ago thinking, why am I going to wait for best buy to sell the Game at this price, just so that I can save four dollars with GCU? I think for many on this website this is a game in and of itself, to see exactly how cheap you can get your games for.

This code is working on Doom VFR, but what happened to ShopRunner and its free shipping on newegg??

Ever since Newegg introduced their “premier” shipping it seems like almost nothing has been shoprunner eligible. Every once in a while you still get free “eggsaver” shipping. But it doesn’t seem like it’s very often anymore, especially on video games.

I got free “super eggsave” shipping with my skyrim order. I rarely order from newegg and don’t think that I even logged into an account to order.

If anyone is interested in Skyrim VR I still have mine sealed I'm looking to offload that came with my bundle.  Shoot me a PM if you are interested in it.

I played some more Doom VFR. Using the Move controllers feels too cumbersome. They were okay for the first level, but in the next level (or was it the third?) there was a big firefight where they felt like a chore to use. After dying a few times I switched to the dualshock 4, and I passed it with ease. The guns look kind of silly outside of the Move set up, and you lose some immersion, but the free movement feels so good.

I just played the first level or two of Doom VFR with the aim controller. The street luge game on PS VR Worlds didn't do it, but Doom VFR gave me a bad headache. It was all of the teleporting, dashing, and turning left to right. Is it possible to make it smoother turning left and right? 

 

I actually got stuck in Doom VFR already, after a little BB8 looking droid picks up a key card from behind some glass in a server room, I can't pick up the damn card off of the ground. Do you guys have any tips? Maybe I need to move the camera or my setup or something. I think I had a similar problem when Alfred hands you a key while you're playing the piano at the beginning of Arkham VR. I couldn't pick the darn key up.

 

 

Thank you to everyone who contributes so much to this thread. I used to post probably 20 or 30 times on CAG a day, but now it's been like 1 post every other month the past year or two. This is by far my favorite thread on CAG right now and it's making me visit this site more often again.

 

Thanks budarc and FriskyTanuki for the excellently detailed responses to my questions several days back. Thanks again to barlush23, BeaGolden and anyone else I'm forgetting as well. 

 

 

 

After following everyone's advice and enjoying the experiences so much, I ended up buying Psychonauts, The Farpoint bundle, and obviously DOOM VFR. Now I'm only missing a couple physical US releases (including Job Simulator  :wall:  :wall:  :wall:  ). I was so very tempted to buy ATV Drifts & Tricks until I saw this crazy video.

 

 

I don't know. I might end up having a complete collection minus Job Simulator and minus that piece of crap unless it's under $5 used. They used the same goddamn levels as the other game? Not to mention you have to play the standard game to unlock VR. That game developer blows.

 

 

 

Edit: I just remembered one more little VR related thing to rant about. The Farpoint bundle didn't have a USB cable to charge it and I see it has a slot for a wrist strap, but it didn't include one of those either. I thought I was cheap, but that's really cheap.

Like someone else mentioned above, I ended up using the Dualshock for most of Doom VFR. It's just too intense an experience to handle using the Move controllers and learning all the various button functions. You're given an option to turn on "left stick" handling on DS4, but I don't really recommend it for the entire game because all the motion made me super nauseous (I tried it for the Doom classic maps). But it would probably help you in the case of smoother turning. With the DS4, you point down to the object (in this case, keycard) and press R3. I never had any problem picking it up in that sequence. Also, always remember the trick to "reorient yourself" in the game by holding down Start for a few seconds. Sometimes that helps with any lingering tracking issue (I experienced the same thing in Arkham VR).

Thank you again. I pushed every button including R3, but I bet I wasn't pointing the aim controller down enough. I'll try the DS4. I tried holding down start in Arkham, but not Doom because I didn't know where to find it on the aim controller. You're correct its a lot to handle learning all of the various button functions in Doom. Hopefully I get some use out of the aim controller with Farpoint or else it will end up in my pile of rarely used giant plastic peripherals.  :D/
