Picked up the Oculus Quest last week, and have to say that the tracking is flawless in comparison to PSVR and the graphics about on par (amazing given its powered by a mobile phone). SuperHot and Beat Saber (including Custom Songs) are far better experiences on the Quest, and more importantly no cords at all.

Not bad. Astrobot is meant to be top shelf but I haven't played it. You'll enjoy RE if you enjoy that kind of thing. Worlds is pretty cool too.

There should be some nice cheap stuff available in the PS store too. Personally I recommend Supershot, Eagle Flight and Rush (which is pretty similar but not so cartoony).

You'll need move controllers though.

Turned this on for the first time in a while the other day. Have been playing Rush VR. Very simple but very fun winged suit racing game. Was pleasantly surprised to see a whole new volcano island set of courses available for dl for free.

This came out today:


Anyone getting it? Open world zombie game. Apparently it's fantastic.

Had a look at the trailer and some game streams last night. I have Arizona Sunshine which started out ok but was fairly limited and had really annoying save points as in you die and have to go all the way back to the save point.. there's probably a name for that but I don't know what it is.

Anyway, my thoughts;
  • Not sure why it's labelled The Walking Dead. Doesn't appear to have any connection to the show or comics I could see?
  • Looks quite atmospheric though.
  • The other humans look a bit cartoony.
  • I really liked the look of the knife attacks. The one where you can put one hand on the head while the other jams the knife in looks particularly satisfying.
  • The stabby sound effects also sound very satisfying.
  • There's no way I'm paying $75 for it though.

There's actually been a few new titles come out recently that I'm curious about.

Also, the headphone jack in my unit has mysteriously stopped working which kind of doesn't really help the immersivity.. if that's a word.

The standard edition is $60 fyi (the one I linked to).

My current WFH setup means VR is out of the question for a bit. But I'm super keen to give it a go, I've purchased, just wanna see some opinions.

One of my work colleagues said it was great, but very hard.

I think conceptually getting a license of The Walking Dead makes something far more appealing to a market. Otherwise it's just another zombie shooter.

I didn't mind Arizona Sunshine, but it was a bit bland for mine, despite having decent reviews. Felt a bit more like an arcade shooter than a proper home console experience.

Yeah I didn't look at your link I just checked it out next time I had the PS4 on based on your post but that does remind me, I was wondering what the difference was between the standard and tourist editions. I wouldn't pay $60 either I don't think but I'm a bit of a tightarse when it comes to games anyway. There isn't much I'm not prepared to wait for on sale or just a regular price drop.

As for the walking dead licence, it's a bit hollow then because if there's nothing to tie it to that world it IS just another zombie shooter (good, bad or otherwise) and they're probably going to alienate more people than they suck in as the people who don't give a sh*t would have played anyway whilst the people expecting to play as Negan or Rick et al are going to be disappointed.

I gave the iron Man demo a go tofay and was suprised at completely zero motion sickness. Flying was fun and simple enough to fly around with ease right from the start. Hopefully combat is a bit more varied than the demo showed but I was impressed.

Only 3 courses? That should be the normal price not sale price.
