PC Gaming With Oculus Rift

The Ars Review: Oculus Rift Expands PC Gaming Past the Monitor’s Edge (+SlideShow +Video)

It took me a few days with an Oculus Rift before I really felt comfortable swiveling my head around while playing a video game. Sure, I’d gotten somewhat used to the idea in years of trade show VR demos or while playing around with my own Oculus Rift development kits and Samsung’s Oculus-powered Gear VR. But those experiences were fighting with decades of gaming experiences where my head generally stayed glued to one spot, pointed at the center of a TV or monitor, and tilted only occasionally to maybe get a better view of something in the corner.
It can be easy to fall back into the “look straight ahead” habit when you first start playing many Rift games.
