    I got Sairento on Steam. It is an excellent game and you can spend easily dozens of hours with it. So far i have around 15 hours and im not even close to max level or bored yet. With levels you get cool upgrades which make you feel even more superninja.

    I havent tried, but i think it would be very hard to play seated. Not sure, if impossible.


    Apparently it is possible to play seated. Immersion might not be so good as standing up.

    Never understood why this game is so talked about. 

    Doesn’t seem good to me.

    Are you kidding? You're wall running and doing all sorts of cool acrobatic maneuvers like some kind of cyberpunk ninja.

    I'm pretty impressed by it so far.

    I've been playing the free weekend. You can play seated. 

    The key to make it work is calibrating the height at which crouch and slide will be triggered. 

    This is not an easy game. It has tons of options. You're going to struggle a lot at first but it's very rewarding. It's the most intense game I've played in VR so far.

    The main reason why I purchased it for the Quest is because I noticed that the PSVR version is twice the price. So I assume I got a good deal.

    That video was funny. Watching the character in the game doing all these incredible maneuvers and then seeing the guy in the corner looking like it's an exercise class for OAP's at a retirement home made me laugh.

    This video does a better job showing how cool this game is. 

    I can't believe I waited so long to play this. This is now at the top of my list of favorite VR games. 



    I will definitely be purchasing this after the free weekend.

    I like the game but not too impressed with the graphics.

    Also the controls seem a bit janky.

    Why is the analogue stick so hyper sensitive when you touch it to turn your view? I've never experienced this problem in any other VR game these past 3 years. Is there any way to lower the sensitivity? 

    I love the way it feels to kill enemies with a sword, that part is pretty cool, when your floating down from the Sky and you stab them or cut their head off, pretty awesome.

    I know what you mean @SkScotchegg on the graphics front, not sure how old the game is but it's still a lot of fun once it it set up right.

    I also had the same hype sensitive turning problem, but ther is an option to reduce the turn amount in the settings, and this made it a lot more playable for me.


    Stil not as good as the guy in @MowTin's video!!, but managed to work up a sweat!
