    Generally any game which gives the impression of moving has the chance to make you feel rough because you eyes say you are moving but your inner ear says you ain't (which is one of the main causes of motion sickness!)

    keep us posted.

    Can you post on here whilst in VR?
    I will exit VR occasionally to post to CUK! Apparently, the headset is at a carrier facility 10 mins away but could be delivered anytime up until 8pm.

    And also the headset tracks head movement rather than eye movement so it confuses the brain and just generally can make you feel unwell. I find games like EVE and driving or walking games to be the worst offenders. In some games they have started to use a teleportation mechanism to overcome it. So instead of walking to a location you just zoom to it. It does help with the sickness but it doesn't help the immersive experience.

    Shut the curtains?

    VR Headsets make me puke after about 20 minutes. My son ( aged 9 ) claims not to be affected. But he's still not getting one for Xmas.

    Mods, I agree that this is probably the most important thread on here, so feel free to create a new forum for it next to or before the General link.

    Please no bananas in your replies, just knowing you know makes me happy.
    Is this a new electric mobility scooter?
    His heart is in the right place - shame we can't say the same about his brain...
