Thanks bro really appreciate. Actually i am not going to watch movies it will be only for gaming and i hardly play games only 1hr per day.I can sacrifice little bit of resolution for the sake of screen size. It's impossible for me to afford another led :(.

 

You would be better off playing a normal game on a 24-32" HDTV than you would playing it on the PSVR cinematic mode.  I love my PSVR, but cinematic mode is worthless.  It does NOT make you feel like you are playing on a big screen TV.

I have a 120" projection screen that I sit about 8 feet from.  My vision has always been crappy.  That screen size allows me to see things I never could before.  In cinematic mode, I feel like I have to struggle to see on the screen because your point of view/perspective is too close to the display.  


Looking to slowly build a youtube channel.   Any help is appreciated.

Newegg being greedy: http://www.ebay.com/...0QAAOSwcgNZGvrl

 

Edit: They lowered it to $89.99, was $99.99. Still over MSRP for farpoint.

After playing 1 hour of Farpoint with the aim controller i actually like it. Idk how everyone else plays it but i play standing to make use of crouching and turning myself at some points. Other then a slow start but i say thats needed to get yourself acclimated to playing.

You can turn on smooth turn using the thumbstick in options. It ups the movement intensity and might cause a little VR motion sickness. IGN said it's likely necessary for Co-op because in those cases it's more critical to track and hit everything and apparently things can actually come from behind.

You are right.  It doesn't feel like you're watching a big screen.  It feels like you're just sitting extremely close to a normal screen.  I could get the same effect sitting 6 inches from my HDTV, minus the HD.

Just ordered the Farpoint Aim Bundle for store pick up at Best Buy. I've been looking for a reason to get back into VR after not really playing anything since January. Hoping this is as fun as I hope, the Aim controller looks like a great time itself so I hope we get more games supporting it soon.

 its pretty fun. I would suggest playing first time with controls on default then turn on smooth turning. default works very well for moving and shooting and it feels more natural in the world but you cant turn around fully. with smooth turning you can turn around but give me a little motion problem standing. but its way less then any other movement done in a vr game by a long shot.

I went straight for the smooth turning and so far it hasn't bothered me at all. Farpoint is some of the most fun I have had in VR yet, definitely glad I picked it up. I'd say Farpoint is a must-have for PSVR owners. This is the game they should be demoing PSVR, I had my dad try the game and he absolutely loved it.

That sounds pretty cool. But I heard its 5 hours long, does it have online multiplayer?

It looks fun, but is it $80 fun? Seems like a steep investment for a short game.

Can someone tell me if Farpoint has captions/subtitles?   I'm hard of hearing so I need them to understand what's going on in video games. 

 

TIA

It has coop. Once you start getting into the game, the next time you start you can choose Coop from the menu. There's 5 missions you can pick from. They're story missions, but you choose them from the menu and go from there so I recommend playing through the game first, or prepare for spoilers because you can play them in any order from that menu.

In co-op mode, you and your partner can attack each other.  Not a designated mode, but some people find it fun.

Any replayability on the single player or not really?   After not really getting my money's worth out of my psvr (due mainly to annoying cables and mild motion sickness), I'm not sure I want to shell out another $70ish for a 5 hour experience and peripheral that I'm unlikely to use again.

about the same as a light gun game for replay. i am a light gun fan so i really enjoy what i have played sofar. as far as motion sickness goes i find movement to be natural for the most part. out of all the games i played i find this ones done it the best sofar. i think the price for a well built gun and new game was well worth it, its the first vr game that i dont mind hooking cables up to play,

Mervils has its charm, but the VR isn't anything insane. $10 would be a better price, however, $15 is good if you're desperate to play a new VR game.

Farpoint thoughts:

 

  • Aim Controller is neat, tracking is about perfect save a few exceptions.
  • Easy to get spun around so I recommended smooth turning to get yourself straightened out. Was facing 90 degrees away at first on many occasions and having a hard time with the gun until I turned on smooth tracking.
  • The story has some interesting moments, surprisingly.
  • Environments are pretty drab. Takes a few missions for the enemies to get a little more interesting.
  • Overall I recommend it to those who are fans of VR. People who know its strengths and and can accept its limitations can appreciate it. I don't think this will be the the "a-ha!" game for those who don't have VR or are tepid about VR.

I don't think this was supposed to be a killer app, but there was quite a marketing push for it at least. Overall I'd have to say that I am left a bit...disappointed. Right now I'm in that 5.5 or 6/10 range. I don't judge those who are feeling it's a "9" or whatever. I'm interested enough in finishing up the last mission or two that I have left and working towards the platinum but may back away from it if there's a challenge. Don't get me wrong, I like being challenged, but if I'm not having fun then I'm out. Conversely, sometimes a challenge presented from a mediocre game can be fun sometimes too, so we'll see.

 

Here are some spoiler-laden thoughts about the game too. If someone wants to reply or chime in feel free to give your spoiler tagged thoughts too if you finished the main story:

Smooth turning is a stomach churner, do not recommend if you're just starting. I do small step, which is clicky turning which is fine since you can rotate your physical body for the most part, but smooth is D:

Yeah smooth turning is more realistic visually but my stomach doesn't like it much, even as as I try to persevere.

I turned smooth turning up to 11 right away. I don't mind it at all... It seems like the most normal way to play for me.

Got my psvr today using the 15 off $100 gift card deal on eBay.

Tried out summer lesson and thought it was pretty good but lacking a bit of content. I only played a week and most of the time watched my friend play.

I also got job simulator and batman vr. I didn't realize you needed the move controllers so I bought a couple used at game stop.

The danganronpa demo was awesome but shorter than I thought. It was amazing seeing the characters up close and vr seems really good with anime characters.

Same thing with project diva x. I'll have to get the vr lives.

Kinda disappointed with the resolution especially with apps like YouTube and 360vr or whatever that Japanese app is.

Just wish there was a mmo vr like sword art or mine craft vr, but will soon get re biohazard.

Small step is the best. If you need to turn around, just turn your body. The tracking is good enough that it still works fine. I tried large step too, but it was too disorienting. I had no idea which direction I was facing in relation to where I was before.

Youtube 360...  

Just a suggestion - look to download videos from the internet...  I found a couple of ones that were amazing...  I wish I could remember where they came from.  One was of a waterfall...  another was of a roller coaster.  I think they were 4K or something.  Downloading them - was a big file, but it really was impressive.  Not the grainy stuff available on Youtube.

I finally got to play a couple of games in my backlog tonight - Moonshot Galaxy and Gunjack.
 
Moonshot Galaxy is definitely going to take some getting used to. I got a 46 on a par 30 course on my first game. It's a fun game, I'm just going to have to learn how to play it better.
 
Gunjack is really where it's at though. I picked this up last month when it was on sale for $3.99. I can't believe I waited so long to play it! I did not have very high expectations for this game, but it turned out to be a blast. I should have bought this game a long time ago. I strongly recommend it to anyone who enjoys space shooters.
