I have £10.99 and probably equiv in euro and dollars as internet web prices seem to go!

'Oculus' inform me I have to spend it within ten days or loose it - wow, and there was me thinkin' I'll wait till i wanted to buy something...

So, what's the best 'ting to buy with my soon to be expiring imaginary money?

Answers on a postcard please for a 50 yrs plus user with at-least three braincells who has had fun but wants more in VR (-: 

UPDATE; 13th March 2019 - Apollo 11 HD added to my library, looking forward to the experience (-:

    Yep same here. What the lord giveth, the lord taketh away. £11 credit now I will need to see what catches my eye and be rushed into a purchase - lol at least I had a year to dilly dally.  Where's @RuneSR2 when you need him for some suggestions.

    I was actually hoping to save it for Oculus Quest purchase.

    I purchased LANDFALL for £10.99.

    Hopefully this list can provide some inspiration (I still keep it updated, if nothing is changed then nothing needs to be changed ;)

    Actually Ethan Carter would be a great suggestion - I'd easily rate that one 96 %  o:)

    And there're new titles like Shadow Legend, Audica and Angry Birds.

    Look for popular multiplayer games. That way you will get the most of playtime (almost infinite).
    Echo VR Arena (free) + Echo Combat ($10) will do :)
    You could try a Combat demo room inside before you buy. It's all about strategy actually, not just a shooter.

    I like the look of Robinson - good graphics but over the £ limit right now. Twas nice to wander around in Ethan Carter which I enjoyed, Maybe Apollo 11 HD? Tho I'm looking for game that challenges the mind, maybe something to shoot (not all the time) and good scenery/graphics.
    Not much to ask for eh (-:

    So.. it's just turned 12th March here in the UK and the email i got said;
    "Your Oculus Store credit worth £10.99 will expire soon. You can use your credit by visiting the store before March 13"
    Looks like i have to make a decision, oh i hate rushing... but is the 13th March USA eastern or western or UK or maybe China time?
    Quite fancy the table tennis sim - should have gone for it in the daily deal a while back  :smile:

    well I tried logging in last 4 hours. "unexpected errors". Finally got in and it's past the deadline. Guess my rift will be collecting some more dust.
