The Talos Principle will get a VR mode that'll also run on GNU/Linux.
I can't wait to play this with VR.

Yeah!! VR on Linux with SteamVR now works for me.
Just got myself Serious Sam VR: The First Encounter.
Awesome stuff.

[Edit:]
Being able to hold a gun in each hand, hold your arms out and point the guns around corners, look around corners too, and hold a gun up to your face to look down the sight. Vibrating controllers. I don't feel like looking up when exactly I ordered the Vive, but I've been waiting to really use it for about a year. Speaking of looking up, high structures and enemies on higher planes are great in VR.

I also played Destinations, together with a friend who also uses a Vive on Linux.
Even something simple as playing catch is fun. It's difficult to explain why.
We also flew small planes around, also entertaining. It's like a bar, but filled with toys.

I really want to try this.
Unfortunately I think it will be some time before I get around to buying a Vive. Maybe I should just wait for the second generation...
Not entirely unrelated: how great would it be if somebody found a way to make the hyperbolic time chamber possible.

I was searching for "endeavouraccuracy" (the username that Norbert uses elsewhere), and...

Wut. That picture is from earlier in this thread. viewtopic.php?p=20159#p20159

Google's first results are a bit more relevant: https://www.google.hu/search?q=endeavouraccuracy&tbm=isch (Spock!)

How exactly are these "Not entirely unrelated"? :)

That's all right. :)

For future reference, here are the two actors who have portrayed adult Spock.
If you see another actor as a Vulcan, it's (most likely) not Spock.
