So the day that got back from my four months of traveling my Oculus Rift arrived, pretty good timing if you ask me. I'll be using this thread to write up small reviews of the games and experiences that I've tried out.
First off I was pleasently surprised with the packaging that the Rift came in, really good quality and clearly built to minimize any movement of the components during transit. The left hand side of the box contains the headset itself, while the right has the sensor on the top and then the Xbox One controller and other bits and bobs under a lift-up flap. I've been using this box to store my Rift since it arrived, with the only slight annoyance being getting the cables for the headset back in. So I've resorted to leaving the cables running out of the box (using a piece of foam to place between the lid and the cable).
Initial impressions of the headset were really good, it fits well and it surprisingly light. After playing around with the lense adjustment and the straps on the side I found a nice sweet spot which seems to be the clearest I can get it. It's not perfectly sharp, but for a first generation of a brand new technology it's really impressive. The Oculus Home setup and configuring the headset it painless and took less than an hour to run through.
I'll split my little reviews up into separate posts below.
