Also, I see Curry's were selling Blood and Truth for a tenner  and it's worth that.  If they patched it so you could skip cutscenes I'd buy it again.

 

It's £12 digital soooo probably worth the premium for non hassle launching

It’s £22 at CEX and they’ll pay back £10 in cash. Fuck it.  Bought it digital. 
 

still playing Headmaster.  So good.

If someone told 10 year old me that in 2020 I would be quarantining from a global pandemic, but coping with being trapped in my house by using a virtual reality headset I would have stopped reading Science Fiction.

 

But Beat Sabre is the perfect way to get my blood pumping.

 

Then played an hour of Paper Beast. The essential grade from Eurogamer is deserved. Wow.

Is Paper Beast an Astrobot beater? :wacko:

 

No, I'd say not. Paper Beast is like Journey, in that if it clicks with you on an emotional level it'll blow you away. 

 

Astrobot is (or should be) every person's favourite platform game that isn't one of the greatest Marios :)

I’ve just played PB for three hours in a row. I’ve never done that for VR. 

 

They are completely different games and i think astrobot is up there with Mario. It’s brilliant. 
 

But at the same time, I think PB is something completely unique. It’s an experience that would only work in VR, but in no way shallow.  It’s fantastic.

I had to google it to learn what it is, and discovered's by Eric Chahi? (Another World)

 

That's good enough for me - although I have one question, can it be played sitting down or do you have to move a lot?

It's a sitting down game really, not much physical moving about. I spent a couple of hours on it yesterday whilst lounging on the sofa.

Wipeout is down to £8.99, so just bought it hope it doesn't make me sick lol

 

To this day the first time I booted up Wipeout in VR is the most mindmelting experience I've had in a game. It's everything I dreamed of when playing 2097 all those years ago in my room at Uni, you really are sat there in your Feiser Speed, and then it starts to move!! It still amazes me that a PS4 can chuck that around.

 

But yeah if you don't have strong VR legs you might find it vomit inducing. I think it starts with all the comfort settings on though.

Well, wow. It's amazing. Had two tries today. Comfort settings. 15 minutes each time before I started to feel quite unwell. But will persevere as it is an incredible experience!!

just watching @kerraig UK playing the room on occulus.

 

the PSVR version is £25 at the moment, so I'll wait for that to come down in price.

 

only because I still haven't completed the 2nd level of... anything, actually.

The room is the best VR and puzzle experience I have had. Great with one on the VR and one on social screen also.

Grabbed Wipeout in the sale and whilst it was downloading bit let's you play on 2 tracks.

 

Jesus it's incredible isn't it, the feeling of immersion is just jaw dropping.

 

I then turned changes one of the locked camera options, think I put it to "locked to pilot", thought I was going to barf within about 5 seconds.

 

I feel I have decent VR legs as I did the whole of RE7 with the free roaming camera but that was just too much.

I dusted off the PSVR after a long break due to only playing on the Quest. I will be moving the PS4 to another room so been testing out the VR to see if that moves too - and it will.

 

The comfort of the headset is superb - better than all the rest. The only slight niggle is sweaty forehead but other than that super comfy. Just reminded me of how good it can be!

 

Polybius is still my favourite really (and better than on PC where tthere is a weird choppiness on Quest) but Statik is really good fun... Blood & Truth demo was ok. I need to get back into Astrobot as it sits forlorn on the shelf (stupid me). Ditto for a few others (inc wipeout!). Also the sale looks good! Creed will be fun and I get to fight Clubber Lang and Drago!!!

 

Not all good news in my dusting off though - I gave Driveclub a go for old times sake and wow if my vision was that blurred in real life I wouldn't be allowed to go on my driving test :D Is there a decent racer on PSVR with better resolution (car racing I mean not Wipeout :D )

 

Still thinking it will be PSVR for exclusives but with sales on PSN being way better than QUest I might get some multi-platform on it
