Defense Grid 2 - Oculus

Basically 'Bloons with guns. It was on sale so I bought for Rift and Go. I really wanted the Go version to work well so I could refund the Rift one and just play on there. The Go version has very slimmed down graphics tho. The models have way less polygons. I'm going to refund the Go one and keep Rift and crank super sampling up to 2.0

Bmyoungs and wags played the free demo and were in the scoreboard. I liked the gameplay and will play more. It's a nice change of pace to sit down and casually play a strategy game instead of slashing away with light sabers.

Oculus exclusive, so you would need to use Revive which is really easy. But if you're taking the 30 seconds to set up revive there are better Rift games for you to play on my account.

And this game is exactly Bloons. Baddies come down a track, you set up different towers that have different powers against different enemies. Can upgrade towers and even block the baddies path and force them to go elsewhere.

Had super sampling up to 2.0 but wasn't getting steady 90 for. Changed to 1.6 and looks as clear as something can on the Rift.

Played 2 more levels tonight. A lot of sitting around and waiting for money but luckily there is a fast forward and even rewind button.

I'm really enjoying this game. I find it very relaxing, almost therapeutic, to play. I've been gold starring all levels on "normal". I think I am about halfway done with the entire game. 12/25 levels I think?

Biweekly check in to this thread. I've started listening to podcast while playing the game because sound isn't very important to gameplay. I could relax like this all night.
