    I don't have it but I heard it's good. I'm thinking of picking it up myself.

    Its great, I would say from the gaming mechanics I think its what EVE was supposed to be!
    Definately worth buying it!

    This is the only game I thought of buying from the sale. But I'm so hooked in to Skyrim right now that I'm just gonna wait longer. Besides, Obduction will be out very soon:

    @Zenbane - Skyrim in VR? You said Ethan Carter made you want to puke, so I'm not sure how you cope with Skyrim. I take it you are using Vorpx for Skyrim?

    Ah no, sorry. I'm playing Skyrim in 2D, although I often load it up with Virtual Desktop. I decided against Vorpx for the reason you mentioned, without native support it doesn't seem like a good idea to force VR.

    I'm still wondering about this one myself... and Everspace looks intriguing, but I am still very happy with Elite. I like the "full-featured" space sim that turns some off to Elite, and I'm not sure I see the long-term of Everspace yet. It looks a bit more arcadey to me, but being a lover of sims, I can't stop thinking about trying it out.

    Anyone here that plays Elite gotten into Everspace yet? Or that could compare it to House of The Dying Sun?

    I'm still waiting to see if NoMansSky will have VR support when it's released on 9th August. I'm sure they could of said by now but seems they like to keep people guessing.

    They have said it wont have native VR support on launch but they are looking into adding it later.

    @Killcard - Where did they say that? I've looked everywhere and I've never seen them state that?

    I think .. I might be - partially incorrect, on second look.

    I thought I saw a quote somewhere where they outright said it wont be available on launch. Though instead, currently all I can find are Articles related to this quote that Sean Murray made: http://www.jobsnhire.com/articles/37714/20160312/no-mans-sky-release-date.htm

    He states that "after launch we will see what people want most" .. which merely suggests that it wont be in on release.

    I could have sworn though, that I've seen a quote of them saying it straight up wont be available on release but they are working on it and will be available at a later date. I can't seem to find it though .. so maybe I was wrong about that.

    I hope I'm wrong, I'd love for them to just be like .. "BAM! .. Here's No Man's Sky VR!" on August 10, but I'm not holding my breath.

    @Killcard - This was back in June though, so anything could have happened since then. Some people even speculated it was delayed so that they could implement VR for PlayStation Morpheus. I think what people want most is VR support in this game, so he has his answer right there.
