And any idea how long it takes to build resistance or is it completely dependent on the person? Like how long were you playing resi 7 before you were 'comfortable'?
Any time spent in VR will build tolerance - your brain has to separate what it expects your physical body to be doing compared to what it sees on a screen in front of it. It took me about 4-5 days with maybe 2 hours playtime a day to push through it - once you do you’ll be smooth motioning with the best of them

I played resi 7 about day 4/5 and had no problems - apart from the overall creepiness and unsettling feeling of it haha

Also as coolisin said, short burst or rounds of firewall will help too. It’s all about the separation and once your brain realises that it isn’t reality and shouldn’t expect your body to move in the same way you’ll be grand

I'll have to keep a watchout for Firewall. I've seen it bundled with the aim controller which I can also use with Farpoint.

Thanks lads, just the info I was looking for. I started world 5 of Astrobot last night so will finish that out and go back to Resi 7 to see the difference then.

Prey, which I thought was a decent game a few years back, looks like it could be getting a VR update.

This could be interesting - I’ve had it sitting in the stack for a while but a VR mode could definitely change that. And let’s not forget it does have one of the most banging intro tunes ever....

I don't see anything anywhere saying it's cancelled. They might not be as into advertising it maybe, but can't see why cancelling it would make any difference.

Don't want to be that guy, but, same as real life! But I have astigmatism, so my contacts are about 30-50% more expensive than normal ones, so it would drive the cost of VR gaming up!

I've started doing this over the past few days and found it a good bit more comfortable.
