Tonight I finally got the chance to set up my VR rig, calibrate the sensors, fit the goggles around my enormous lollipop noggin, etc etc. Having yet to install a single piece of dedicated VR software I only have one rock-solid opinion about the thing so far, which is: holy shit I sure do hate seeing the fucking Facebook logo in every third dialog box
