Ultra Wings is the one that can occasionally make my head go swimmy still - but then I do play with all the comfort settings off. It's a nice little game, but I wish it would signpost things I need to achieve a little better, so I could more reliably go where I can earn some cash.

 

I also might have accidentally fallen over whilst playing it a tad drunk, when I tried to lean on the desk in one of the offices...

Whatever you do, stay away from Hustle Kings VR, it's just awful. The potential for a snooker game in VR is huge. I hope someone does it.


what do you think of the implementation in sports bar vr? It’s been a while since I played that, but it was pretty good

It was ok I think, I only tried it once. I found the whole Sports Bar thing to be really awkward to be honest. Would much rather a straight up game, no gimmicks.

 

Even though Hustle Kings is an absolute dog to play, it looks fantastic in VR, just looking around the table etc. I really hope someone does it for snooker.

Just dusted the headset off after not really playing it for a bit.  Mainly because I saw Blood and Truth in the sale and really liked the look of it.....and Jesus wept if it isn’t pretty fantastic so far.  Yeah there’s quite a lot of cut scene stuff happening which I really hope you can skip if you want to replay it, but the shooting feels fantastic.  One small thing they do which really helps is mapping your hands properly holding weapons so you can properly hold pistols with 2 hands, John Wick style, or on rifles you support the handguard under the barrel.  I don’t know if that actually makes any difference - I’d like to think maybe it helps recoil - but immersion wise I find myself instinctively taking up a shooting stance, scanning the area as I move down the sights ready to engage.  I’m sure I look like a right twat, but it feels pretty great play wise.

 

The other bits in there like climbing ladders and pulling yourself through vents also feel really good, and I actually enjoy the lockpicking for once in a game.

I think I stopped going into VR when my glasses started getting scratched.

 

Now I have new glasses, I'll use the old pair just for that.

 

Huzzah!

 

 

I have these, made by a fella on AV Forums. They are recommended fi you wear glasses, work a treat -

Just picked Archangel up in the sale. Wow! One of the best PSVR games I've played. Really great presentation and graphics a surprisingly compelling story and some fantastic mech combat. It's down from 29.99 to 7.99 which has been a steal. Any other fans?

I just realised I bought Archangel months ago and forgot about it completely!

 

For the sale, I bought £15 of credit from CDKeys for £12-odd, and grabbed Sprint Vector and Holoball.

More reviews please!

 

Exactly what I was thinking... the critics don't seem to bother much! Only one critic review for Holoball for example:

So, is Archangel quite hard, or am I just rubbish at it? Playing on the second difficulty level and am getting a right kicking most of the time. I'm enjoying it a lot - just not getting anywhere fast. I have to say though, the voice acting is really good. I'm playing as the female character and the actor voicing the part is just knocking it out the park. Given the piss-poor quality of most voice-work, it's really noticeable when someone nails it.

Will definitely be giving Archangel a go at that price (despite it being story heavy - which isn't my thing). I'd also never heard of it, so ta for the heads-up.

 

There's a 15 min intro and then the story is largely avoidable. You get to talk to your colleagues over comms. It reveals quite a lot about the main character and fleshed out the world a bit. The voice acting is convincing and I've followed much of it, but it's all optional.

 

It is a tough game, I've made steady progress though.

Just played the first few levels of the first world in Astro Bot!

 

So much :wub:

It's got a lot of that to give. It's just massively lovely, and I envy anyone playing it for the first time.

What sort of game is The Persistence? I was about to pull the trigger on buying it then I espied the word 'roguelike' in the description. I had thought it was more like a Dead Space style game. I have nothing against Roguelikes as such, but I prefer my VR experiences to be one and done things with decent focus on a story. Can anyone summarize?

I can. It's neat.

 

The Dead Space part is nothing more than "horror in space". And maybe all the fetching.

The roguelike part is where you are expected to die over and over to make progress where upgrades found remain unlocked (IIRC, has been a while since I played it). It feels very off putting at first because of how you initially play - careful and stealthy. But once you get familiar with the zones and enemies (the zones are random like any good roguelike) you tend to breeze through things.

 

I bought it for a tenner and got my money's worth.

I spent 4 hours in VR on Saturday night, which is probably more that the rest of the year combined.

 

i started with GunclubVR,

Spoiler

which is a shooting gallery like LethalVR, with knobs on. ADS, weapon cocking, reloads, safety switches, etc. I gave up when trying a sniper rifle, in the confines of sandbox mode, wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be

 

moved on to Everybody’s Golf VR

Spoiler

A golf game in VR, that has a single player progression that locks every thing away until you progress. I guess it’s a comfort thing. Starting with Three random holes, from a single course, a par3, 4, & a 5. Couple of those and you can play 9 holes. 
 

DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME SITTING DOWN (if it can be avoided)

 

I’ve uploaded a couple of my longer putts on YouTube. I won’t bore you with the details. If your caddy says she knows a shortcut, this is a lie. And it’s brilliant


so, I’ve done guns. I’ve done golf. What next? The extended expanded cockney geezer VR simulator that is Blood and Truth

Spoiler

Why did they make Colin Salmon a CIA agents when he’s British? Dodgy accents aside... an opening ripped straight from the CODMW playbook, but in VR. A sandy version of the van level in the London heist.

 

Also: You know the uncanny valley, right? Well there’s a section of the A102 blackwall tunnel approach, southbound.but isn’t  Then it is, then it isn’t, because something missing Bromley by bow, Canary Wharf, for example, then it’s definitely blackwall tunnel. 


Then it’s British gangster film histrionics. I think they’ve made an interactive movie. Not to far removed from Batman ArkhamVR. It’s got that same mood. Also: the casino from DHT2 and most of R6:Vegas... but in VR
