I mentioned I’d bought an Oculus Quest back in May, and haven’t mentioned it since.
This is because I haven’t done much with it. A combination of being off my feet with cellulitis, and also having a limited time each day where Katie the Beagle is not under my feet. After all, the last thing you want when having your eyes covered is a beagle wandering around in the same room.
I’m a bit disappointing in myself. I’d previously been using my Oculus Go almost every day, but that was before Katie arrived. Then I buy this expensive new toy, the Quest, and it has been out of the box about 4 times in 3 months.
Anyway, I am going to try to do better in the coming weeks. Funnily enough, it may have done me a favour – whereas a lot of the content for the Go was free, this is not as much so for the Quest. But having waited so long to use it, there is more information out there of which Quest apps are worth the money, and which aren’t. I also have a better idea now of which ones are the kind of thing I’ll enjoy.
In addition, it has been announced that the Quest will get Oculus Go emulation later this year; so I won’t be rebuying any games I’ve already bought for the Go, unless the Quest version has better features.
