Hmm...is VR at a point yet where there are some must-have, canít miss titles?

For me, 100% no question. I can't imagine flying DCS without it now. It is indispensable. Other VR native titles are amazing, revolutionary gaming experiences, like VTOL VR, Onward and Sariento VR. These games just have to be experienced first-hand in order to understand the difference. This is unquestionably the future of gaming, and probably all forms of human interaction.

Onward came up in my Steam recommendations a while back. I was all psyched until I realized it was VR only.

DO NOT the VR version of that creepy, 'Showering With Your Father' game. Just don't do it!  :hide:

Fixed. This is just a shot of the built-in. I'll post some pictures of the other side later.

I posted this in the interior design thread, but for completeness, here is my new office and also some close-ups of my bookshelves.  Everyone loves seeing what another Grog has in his collection!

I think The_Admiral would approve.

I'm going to bump up the bookshelves size to see if you can read the book titles...







These are my dad's books that I posted about a long time ago.  I can't open the top red and green ones or the spines will break.  The brown ones I can read.  The bottom shelf is his collection of 007 books and my Churchill WW2 collection.

An office with a bed in it? Who are you, Hugh Hefner?  :bd:

Yeah...if my office had a bed, I would never leave it.

Toonces, what's the white stuff in the Appleton Estates bottle? Sand?

Yes, I try to collect sand from places where I surf.  The Appleton bottle is filled with sand from Carmel Beach in Carmel CA.  The Fiji rum bottle has sand from North Beach on Oahu.

Nice office though, looks pretty big!

I still got some sand left-over from last summer in my shorts, Longboat Key. Interested?

LOL.

Yeah, it's a great sized room.  I'm very fortunate.  I'm just not sure what I'm going to do with that last wall.  I really would like to set up an aquarium, but a long work table would be nice too; somewhere to actually play some of these board games, build some models, write, things like that. 

I've got time, no rush.  I'm about over putting Ikea furniture together.

Not sure exactly how to articulate this right now because I am drunk and blasting Metallica, but my cousin is an actual marine biologist who builds professional grade aquariums for wealthy weirdos as a side hustle so...if you're interested I am sure he could help you. He lives in the Tampa/Sarasota area and is 3000 miles away from you but may be able to give you some tips/help digitally/remotely.
