Well, one of my rift's is out for delivery right now... and I've spent so much time anticipating this day, I forgot to pay much attention to exactly what I should install on day 1 with the rift, lol.

I know the Tuscany demo, though I've heard there are two different releases of it? Anything else? Are any of the Oculus driver packages (ex: vorpx) working correctly yet? Mirrors edge or any other games with official support? Found a article explaining how to get Doom 3 BFG edition working, but want to see what you all recommend to give a throw first...

    the roller coaster in the epic citadel demo seems to be a must try and cymatic bruce also tried a heli simulation that looked a lot of fun.

    maybe have a look at what he has tested so far (pretty much all the cool stuff): http://www.youtube.com/user/HapPProductions

    ohh ... and the museum of the microstar looks gorgeous if you have a powerful GPU

    EDIT: and you can have a look at this: http://www.mtbs3d.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?f=140&t=17424 ... all demos released in a bittorent

    Yah I heard Cymatic Bruce's (I loved his videos when waiting for my Rift) recommendations before getting my Rift and I followed them my first day. However, IMHO the roller coaster and MOTM are two of the absolute worst demos for a newb to try. They present way too much unnatural input to your visual/vestibular system and make most people feel uncomfortable. Your mileage may vary.

    I would like to show it in this particular order:

    1.) Tuscany (without Hydra)
    2.) Proton Pulse Rift
    3.) Roller Coaster
    4.) Streetview
    5.) First Law
    6.) Tuscany (with Hydra)
