Oculus Rift or Vive & NewRetroArcade : Neon
04/03/17 05:20 AM


Today I spent a couple hours in a virtual arcade and it was awesome!

For those lucky members here that own an Oculus Rift or Vive, you owe it to yourself to bite the bullet and spend the $20 for this experience. Read through the forums and find the few ready to go arcade rooms for download and step into the time machine.
The default program comes with an arcade with 3 rooms and lots of cool extras like a bowling alley and air hockey. The arcade cabinets are generic.
Once you transfer in the artwork and roms, the cabinets come to life with any game you choose and the experience is wonderful.
Your hands do not currently grab the joystick but the joystick does move in sync with your hand held device and it makes mechanical noises. You really feel like you are standing in front of an arcade cabinet and you can lean over and put your nose on that old crt monitor.
There is a boom box with cassettes lying around to give you some music.
A nintendo64 sits in one room with cartridges. Pop them in and watch the Television turn on. Start playing!

Really all its missing is people. Multiplayer is possible but I don't know anyone with an Oculus yet.

As far as I know, this is it for VR arcade emulation.

Questions? ask. I'm here to help.
