    Thought I'd give Amazon a bell to find out why they haven't sent mine out yet even though they took the money and it's been sitting on preparing for dispatch for over a day now. My advice is never bother to do that :)

    Mine just arrived but I can't play with it until I get home in a couple of hours. Amazon were fine when I contacted them to ask them to deliver it before 4, I was shocked!

    It's arrived its arrived! First impressions during setup are.... The lens flare, resolution and screen door are sooooo much better than the rift. You notice it immediately

    @atothewest not as comfy on the head as the rift imo, doesn't feel like it's sitting right on the back of your head. Not uncomfy but doesn't feel as secure if you were prancing about. The nose gap is bigger than rift as well

    @atothewest just done the tutorial. It sure gets hot in there, not even done anything yet and I'm sweating, the tracking seems great, the in built speakers would be really good but they're just not loud enough. They're usable but they don't immerse you the same way as headphones

    @AaronTurner Well I've not really done nowt on it, the front got hot, you cant feel or hear the fan, I certainly couldnt hear it but others have said you can. I find it hard to believe I'm looking into a wireless headset and the picture quality is so much better than the Rift was. Mind you, thats what three years does I suppose. The lense flare really ruined the experience a lot of time for me on Rift, and while it's hear still its soooo minimal that its barely noticable. I know I've said that twice but its worth mentioning again

    Not surprised it's hot in there...it's where all the processing is taking place as well as the screen itself. For me lens flare was ok - it was the moire pattern in dark scenes I didn't like - especially in Skyrim.

    I think the fan is meant to blow across the lens so you should be getting some relief from it.

    I've just done a bit of Beat Saber and the image quality is definitely similar to psvr which is pretty amazing given this is all in the headset. Tracking is much better than psvr, had no problems so far. My only issue is I can't find a way to make the guardian system less intrusive, in beat saber it constantly flashes up even though I'm not too close to hitting anything.

    Got home, ready to find the ups note saying sorry we tried, instead I find a note taped to my door from my neighbour saying he collected the package for me. All is well, faith in humanity restored!

    Nice being fifth in the world on some songs on beat saber because it's a quest only leaderboard

    Fuck me, wish I hadn't phoned Amazon, they just sent me an email saying they have rerequested authorisation from my bank card and if I receive another email from my bank saying it rejected I should get back in contact. Thing is I didn't say anything to them about rejected payment, the money has left my account. Not only that but in the same email they say the payment has been authorised on 20/05/19 and dispatch will move forward soon. So fuck me is that isn't all confusing and a load of shite.

    @TPReview you have to enter dev mode to turn off guardian mode. I sit on a bed with my knees up and it keeps alerting me everytime I put the headset on so I'm going to switch it off for now.

    My point is that my bank hasn't declined anything, I have no idea what the email is talking about. In the same email she says the initial payment has gone through on 20/05 and that she's re-requested authorisation for the payment. It's completely hatstand.

    Remember when we used to go to a shop, pay for something and then took it home? That was a great system imo.

    @AaronTurner The fan cools the processor, it doesnt go over the lens,Ive heard it now but only with the headset off as its spinning down

    Pretty sure the fan is not just for the processor, it draws cool air into the area which covers your face. That's why I was wondering if it's working as you got hot.

    Now they are pestering me with phone calls, I've had 4 in the last 20 minutes. Never, ever phone Amazon.

    I've only played Drop Dead so far, it's..... ok, the graphics are alright, somewhere between GO and Rift which is what you'd expect, seems like the framerate of the NPC's is quite low in parts, the shooting is fine although it feels like I have to hold the gun pointing up at slightly more of an angle than seems natural but maybe thats just me. The baseball works great for twatting zombies, but the pitchfork you dont seem to be able to beat them with and I couldnt poke them with it either, as a result I died.

    There was a couple of onstnaces where the graphics momentarily looked like they were aliasing around the edges but it was only in the tutorial bit.

    As I say, its not a bad game, its fairly priced and there seems to be a lot of content and Co-op etc, but it's not going to blow anyone away

    I find those games too repetitive. I'm looking forward to Apex Construct more than anything else.
