    Beat Saber is Awesome - I need new arms

    I know this is likely to be ancient news to most, but I don't have any friends who VR and wanted to share. For whatever reason, I held off a long time on buying Beat Saber. I think I was harboring some kind of grudge against it for being such a simple, "casual" game. A couple days ago, I finally...

    Does the Rift S possess any features that would make it a must-have over the Odyssey+?

    Prices notwithstanding, is there anything about the Rift S which makes it objectively better than the Odyssey+, or anything about the Odyssey which makes it worse?

    The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners

    Haven't picked this up yet, but may check it out with my Boneworks refund money. A bit more expensive, but apparently a lot more "game" than Boneworks from what I've heard. Anyone have any experience with this one? It's getting some pretty rave reviews.

    VR Core Scaling (specifically 6 vs 8). Any data?

    From the information I've been able to find there is a suggestion that VR does have some more scaling with core count relative to conventional gaming. Well at least in terms of benefiting more from having >4c/8t more so than conventional gaming. What I'm unable to find is more direct...
