    Probably Dimension Hunter. Nice score attack FPS, though I bought it when it was 40% off. Really like it, and def worth picking up under a tenner.

    Watching the OC4 stream - totally new interface incoming called Oculus Dash. You can take normal Windows desktop apps and pin them inside whatever VR app you're currently in. It looks *&(%ing amazing. Home has also been overhauled, and you can finally customise it. They've switched over to UE4 as well.

    Beta coming in December.

    No idea. Couldn't get it to stream in the app while it was happening live so ended up watching on Twitch.

    Looks great, but hope it doesnt eat fps once you're actually ingame. SteamVRHome (or whatever its called) eats 10%+, I disabled it as soon as I found out.

    Having Oculus Home + SteamVR Home + game going would really tank my performance before Vega 64 (on either 480 or 295X2), it's not so noticeable now but I do try to launch directly from Steam or Oculus Home and avoid SteamVR Home that way.

    Hopefully this will not be a performance killer, would be nice to be able to have say a twitch stream going while playing a game.

    Not that I saw, but at points I was only listening to the stream while doing other stuff.

    Was well received when it came out, and I think it's had free movement added since it launched. Will definitely pick it up at that price.

    There is a checkbox to disable it in the settings menu of the SteamVR window.

    Edge of Nowhere is currently £3.99 on the Oculus store. I thought it was average tbh, but lots of other people loved it, and frankly for that price it's a bit of a bargain if you've never played it.
