Yeah our UK woolies got bought by the Littlewoods catalogue company.
C&A shut down so long ago, though.. mid 90s was it?
I was just peddling through a random town, and suddenly stopped dead in my tracks.. .. and the 360 video carried on a bit, so had to hit the "back 10 seconds button" and double check.
Gobsmacked!!

Yeah, I'm not even sure if it was the same Mr Woolworth that started the Australian one. It's certainly a very different logo!
Might've been, though. I'd have to Google it, and Google already has me searching for C&A. If I add Woolworths to the list, next thing I know it'll be randomly redirecting me to Comets and British Home Stores!

No VR, yesterday.. I forgot to put on my Snood (small rolly scarf thing) a couple of nights ago, and .. boy, was it a cold night. Not the best night to be forgetting that.. It resulted in, quite frankly, agony..
Yesterday was a complete write-off, as a result.

Today was much better, though, and with the bit of spare cash I had, (How fucking much am I paying for Water, nowadays? Fuxake!!) it was time to splash out on a couple of new games.

I first downloaded the "Gravity Sketch" thing, which lets you sketch and add cubes and such to a 3D area. Platdude was, of course, attempted, but I couldn't get to grips with the grid system, so he ended up a little haphazard in the end.
I'll try that again, tomorrow.
Also, I don't think it has Gravity.. I might be wrong, but .. Kinda in the name.. Why's it not there?!

I bought Hand Physics Lab, because that looked like a fun experimental sandbox type of thing. The "Your actual hands" hand tracking kinda works, but I wouldn't want to be doing too much with it.
This "game" is pretty much a bunch of blocks and buttons and slides puzzles and such, basically like a tutorial on how to use the hand tracking, but with fun physics involved along the way.

I also bought the game Rez Infinite. But after about 10 minutes playing with Hand Physics, previously faffing about with Gravity Sketch, and the usual Cycle/Sword exercise games before that, my head was no longer in a good place to carry on.

I'll Rez-it-up tomorrow, no doubt!

Back in the day, we had Woolworth's and Woolco (which was a spinoff and a much better store). Toys R Us tried to come back (here) in 2019 with 2 stores, but Covid killed them off.

Just tried this game. https://voidroom.com/tea-for-god/

Turned off enemies, so there's less glancing, and hopefully it'd be ok.
Unfortunately, the room's a little cramped, so I only gave it about 10 minutes before I'd stubbed my toe too many times!

Right at the start, you're quite high in the sky, above the clouds, on a balcony, and have to step onto a platform on a floating ship in front of you.
..oh my god, I was scared shitless!!!

So close!!

There's a nice new "Electronic Mixtape" in Beat Saber, which includes some cracking tracks and a lovely new background effect!

Word of warning : the Witchcraft - Pendulum track made me motion sick about halfway through.
I think the "level" designer went full on with the word Pendulum..

I do like a bit of Beat Sabre on occasion, I modded it on my headset so I could play tracks I like... I tell you what, He's A Pirate is bloody mental:-

^ Not me... I wish though, currently my best score is just over 58000, it's solid mind, I can hold my own for a bit then my head just goes "Fuck this shit" and I'm waving me arms about like a loon just going for anything!

Another toughie is Party Like Its 1923:-

Honestly, people who can do that map must be sniffing kryptonite mind, absolutely solid!

Meta have got a port of Epic's PC VR demo running on the Quest.

You can try it out Here
Or search for Showdown, though it's under AppLabs.

Am about to try it out.
Will no doubt be posting a reply with how long I last

..well, that was disappointing,.
It's a fairly short on-the-rails loop, with no interactivity as far as I could see, other than dodging, which I can't do. So, um.. yeah..
There's a menu on the top left of my viewport, but the text is so far off the edge of the "screen" and the font so tiny, that I have sod all possibility of telling you what any of it does.

What a let down.

Oh, and it looks like ... remember the early pc 3D era, when 3D games would look like shit because they were trying too hard to look better than what the system could handle?
