    To be honest, I'm thinking about selling my 64gb Quest. Hopefully, I'll find a buyer on eBay.

    @L0cky It has a fan built in to cool it, it gets warm but not roasting, you can feel the fan slightly on your face. One major thing with it is no matter how hard I've tried, you cannot steam up the screen. This is massive for me because the Rift used to steam up every ten minutes and it would drive me mad. When it gets to a certain heat it wont charge for a while a while though due to safety reasons. Doesnt matter with some games, but stuff like BigScreen, after half an hour the Quest wont charge while you're using it. Makes the ability to charge it with a battery pack while playing etc pointless. I've played other less intensive games like Job Simulator where this wasnt an issue.
    Spit on the lenses - did you learn nothing from Jaws?!

    Any news on any golf or football games coming for the quest ? Also donít suppose we will ever see no mans sky on it ?

    Also not sure how a football game would work but imagine being to be able to take a penalty at Wembley

    You have no tracking of your feet, unless you want to wave your arms to kick the ball it's not happening.

    Just wondering if I can calibrate the quest again without factory resetting it ? The reason I ask is because the fov
    Slider doesnít seem to change much and a friend said I should recalibrate it

    Yeah if you go to Library/Tutorials you can get the green bars screen again. However I wish you could get to that screen more quickly/easily.

    I've heard of people tucking Wiimotes into their socks to use as foot tracking in things like Skyrim VR on the Vive. So I wouldn't entirely rule out things like football in the future...

    Surely there is a goalkeeper football game.

    Loved VR Sports challenge on the oculus Rift, wonder if that will come to Quest. The American football was cool, all from a QB perspective.

    @Tomo Yeah if Quest was popular enough, you might get something like the Vive tracking pucks.

    @Baihu1983 Is the battery low? They tend to get a bit shitty below 40% battery

    Played some Superhot last night. Itís so much fun when the tracking works! I found the PSVR version literally unplayable due to the tracking so being able to play it properly is a completely different experience. I suspect that actually playing it looks like that scene in Robocop where heís reliving being shot to death though.

    Creed demo was okay but might wait till it's on sale

    Anyone else pickup Sairento VR? Itís a funny one. I donít think a ďproperĒ company would release a game like that - though I donít mean that negatively. Bouncing around and wall running is a lot of fun but it sure does make aiming difficult! The biggest issue I have right now is reliably landing melee strikes, as I keep landing a foot or two away from an enemy and canít quite reach them. Made me realise how useful the Robo Recall system of just hoovering up enemies with your magic grab is.

    Got it but not played it yet, the graphics look fucking awful though, mind you, Robo recall didnt look great in videos and that turned out nicely, but Sairento literally looks like PSone level

    Yeah, it's really blurry and plain. I think Robo Recall actually looks pretty nice and clear, especially given the hardware. They spent enough on the violence effects to keep it fun, but I'm not sure they got there with Sairento. I'll keep playing though, there is a lot of loot to pick up and a surprising number of weapons to use. I really like the implementation of the kusarigama, or at least the idea of it!

    The VR videos I've watched have been a bit blurry but everything else has been fine. UFC have put up both Of the fights that saw Ronda getting destroyed and watching them with this was great.

    Thereís one video of waterfall shot from a helicopter thatís really good, and national geographic has some nice ones too. Most other stuff is indeed a blurry mess.

    @northernlights you can increase the resolution of the quest using an app, it works great for YouTube but can obviously slow down some games, when you reboot the quest it resets it back to normal res. You need a pc and the Quest in developer mode.

    this is the bat file https://m.box.com/shared_item/https%3A%2F%2Fapp.box.com%2Fs%2Fo2apxuj3pob0rs4b8ruk9sek57gzwz08

    @northernlights its very simple, no chance of bricking the machine, dev mode is part of the Oculus app and you arent permanantly changing anything, you really need to put it in dev mode to get everything it can offer such as sidequest to play unreleased games, add songs to beatsaber etc

    As for changing the resolution, you open the bat file and press the number to the resolution you want, it doesnt get any easier
