    Before I spend money can you guys recommend some freebies to whet my appetite. I was impressed with the demo especially the bit where I was looking down a long way, that was a bit scary?

    Dear Angelica was the best thing I witnessed on Rift, and it was free. It was absolutely beautiful and very convincing. I was actually sniffing at it and everything lmao.

    Edit in. I am still waiting for controller support for FO4 VR, which apparently is amazing on Rift. However, without the motion controls it doesn't work.. I did manage to find a *cough* version and had a look and it looked incredible, however I was only able to look around the room and not move.

    I have been hawking Google ever since launch and apparently some one called Jess posted (from Bethesda) saying they were adding controller support.

    I hope so, because it could literally become the game of my life. Even on my DK2 it looked fantastic, but I am not playing it standing up waving my arms around breaking things.

    Install Steam VR from the steam app, and then search VR games, there are hundreds of free ones to try out.

    Make sure to allow unknown sources in the Oculus app. :)

    Will do, though I had totally forgotten about Steam VR so thanks for the reminder.
    Have you got any recommendations, scary is good?

    Scary? Buy Affected The Manor, it's about £5 if I remember rightly in the Oculus store. I'm sure you will crap your pants in that one! My mother did! Watch the clip below. Haha :D
    Paranormal Activity is good, but as for a free one, The bellows is good on Steam.
