    I played this one a little last year,
    https://www.oculus.com/experiences/quest/2352932654734987/
    the graphics are terrible (but they run on stand alone quest) but it is an mmo with fighting, melee, spells, gathering, crafting, grouping for harder monsters, voice chat, etc.... If I was younger (or older?) and had lots of time, I would have explored it more.

    ah interesting. Hadn't seen that one (but then again, sure there is plenty I not seen on the store). Anyhow this is the one I was thinking of. It just did a release day trailer (which is later this month). The cooking looks fun. And you can order drinks at the bar.... eat your heart out MA, although I understand they expect a shipment soon... ,-)

    it does look pretty cool, wonder how much you will puke flying around like that. :P
     
  4. It's like a cross between WoW, SL and one or two others with added VR, and also reminds me of one of my pancake making days, except the pan detached itself from the handle and the pancake ended up stuck on the ceiling.

    Yeh I wonder about that. Historically I've encountered sickness issues only 5 times. With the Rift DK2 I found if the camera lost you, you loose lateral movement tracking, and that was a little nauseating. On a racing sim in town, spinning out made me feel pretty ill (cause I wasn't actually spinning myself). At Zero Latency (VR place where you can walk about) there was a lift in the zombie game that didn't agree with me. After that I just closed my eyes when I went on it. Again, issue was going up in VR and not going up IRL. I think I had a slight nausea in Elite inside a spinning space station and the worst time was when I tried to make my own VR content, messed up movement/controls, thought I could handle the nausea, then got so sick I had to go and walk around outside for half and hour to feel better.

    With the new headset I've not tried much that involves moving around large areas yet (just something called VARK which had a small area you could move about in - and even that did something weird with rotation - kinda made it fixed amount and instant) I've seen there are lots of different movement methods in other games. One I've been looking at videos of online seems to be a bit like how we used to be able to move in Entropia (click on the landscape) but instead of gradually moving there it just instantly teleports. I found that a little trying to watch others do on youtube... dunno how I'd find it in VR.

    Another vR MMO I've been watching some vids on is a Township tale. Have to admit this is kinda appealing to me. The crafting in it looks really fun and it seems kinda chill and not too combat'y.

    But yeh... the flying in zennith... or falling off cliffs etc. Yeh I wondered how that would feel... Well maybe I'll try it next month... will have to see.

    I have to admit, when it comes to VR MMO's I can see myself being much more a Lisbeth character than a Yuuki Konno character. I think I'd be in my blacksmith shop just making swords for everyone else to go out and slay the monsters with. ^_^
