The post Best Oculus Rift games (June 2018) appeared first on VR Source.

]]>

The Oculus Rift launched in March 2016 with a lineup of exciting and new games, and many more have been released since then. It’s now June of 2018, and naturally, it’s time for a big update to our best Oculus Rift games list.

Most of the Oculus Rift games coming out now are no longer just ports, but rather they are built specifically for virtual reality. Some of them cost $5, others cost $60. Buying every game for the Rift at this point would certainly cost as much as the device, if not more. Not everything is worth your time, but at least a dozen or so are.

These are the best Oculus Rift games so far: the ones that have amazed us, scared us, and made us feel like we where playing games for the first time.


The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR

[Price: $59.99]

Step into a fantasy world of dragons, beasts, magic and folklore. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR is the virtual reality version of an all-time favorite RPG.

Whether you choose to stick to the story mode, take care of side quests, or just roam randomly, Skyrim’s open world will surely look more amazing from a first-person perspective. Just imagine standing in front of a dragon in VR.


Batman: Arkham VR

[Price: $19.99]

Many were surprised when Rocksteady announced a new Batman game. The studio had claime Arkham Knight was the last title in the series they would produce. According to Bill Green of Rocksteady Studios, the arrival of the PlayStation VR changed that. Now gamers can do what they’ve always wanted: really become the Batman.

This particular Batman experience is more focused on the sleuthing side of things than combat. You take on the role of Batman as he attempts to solve a case involving the murder of someone he knew well. In the game you have the ability to explore Wayne Manor, the Batcave, and much more. Unlike the previous Batman titles, Arkham VR will be entirely in first-person and tell a “highly focused, very personal” narrative.

The ability to physically reach for the various gadgets on your body promises to be a gameplay experience Batman fans won’t soon forget. Just don’t mix up the location of the Batclaw and the Batarangs!


Star Trek: Bridge Crew

[Price: $49.99]

What fan of the Star Trek hasn’t had fantasies of sitting in the captains chair of the U.S.S. Enterprise and ordering the helms person to go to warp 8. Star Trek: Bridge Crew, from developer Red Storm and publisher Ubisoft, allows you to do the next best thing by letting you experience a fully immersive bridge simulation, whether you are alone or if you play with up to three more players.

The game lets you participate in a campaign on board the science ship U.S.S. Aegis, set in the “Kelvin timeline” of the three most recent feature films. In single player mode, you are the captain giving orders to your AI crew members as you explore the region, fight off Klingons and more. The co-op mode lets four players take on the roles of Captain, Helm, Tactical and Engineer. each of which has to perform their own tasks.

In addition to the U.S.S. Aegis storyline, you can go on randomly generated missions on that ship, as well as on the bridge of the original U.S.S Enterprise from the first TV series. This is an expensive VR title, but it’s a must have for Star Trek fans with an Oculus.


Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality

[Price: $29.99]

Adult Swim Games and Owlchemy Labs (the makers of Job Simulator) have joined forces, putting you right in the middle of one of your favorite cartoon shows. This is one of the most unique Oculus Rift games so far. You play as a Morty clone and visit Rick’s garage, the house, and even alien worlds. You will have to help with Rick’s experiments, solve puzzles, slap Rick around, destroy your surroundings, walk through portals, and more. No day is boring in the Rick and Morty universe, so go have some fun, get in trouble and find your way out of it — if you can.

It’s not exactly cheap at $29.99, but this game offers a great VR experience. We know there are plenty of Rick and Morty fans out there who would love to live this insane experience.


Robo Recall

[Price: $29.99]

Robo Recall is easily one of the very best Oculus Rift games yet, offering riveting gameplay and bright, exciting visuals. We first saw the game at Oculus Connect 3 and were blown away with how fast paced and put together the game felt. The title is produced by Epic Games, the same studio who makes the Unreal Engine 4, and created games like Fortnite, Gears of War, and Unreal Tournament.

The game casts the player into a world where assistive robots have run rampant against the humans they were built to help. It is up to you to destroy them in a variety of fun and exciting ways. You can rip the limbs out of robots and use them as weapons against others. You can even catch bullets and throw them back at your assailants. There are loads of ways to have fun in this game. The teleportation and time dilation mechanics are absolutely top notch.

The game comes free with the Oculus Touch controllers. It is $29.99 if you have them already, and well worth it.


Edge of Nowhere

[Price: $19.99]

Before its release, Edge of Nowhere was easily one of the most anticipated Oculus Rift games.  While in our full review we lamented its short length and wished the game made somewhat more novel use of its VR capabilities, this still remains an exciting game that has a near AAA feel to it. In Edge of Nowhere, you play as Victor Howard on a journey to find his fiancee. There’s frantic action, light horror elements, and a pretty engaging story to help keep the whole thing moving along

Chronos

[Price: $19.99]

Chronos was built from the ground up for VR and looks pretty impressive. This 3rd person RPG puts you on a quest to save your homeland. The game is set in a vast labyrinth filled with puzzles, enemies, and plenty of challenges around every corner.

One of the most interesting aspects of the game is that each time your hero dies, they lose a year of their life. Other than that, this seems to be a somewhat typical action RPG, minus the fact it’s a VR experience. Still, it’s one of the best Oculus Rift games you can buy. You can pick it up now for $39.99.

Eve: Valkyrie

[Price: $14.99]

Just like Lucky’s Tale, EVE: Valkyrie was included with Rift pre-orders, though it is also listed separately as well for $60 for those who bought the Rift later. Set in the same universe as the popular EVE: Online, Valkyrie is one of the most hyped Oculus Rift games. 

You pilot a combat-ready spaceship. The gameplay is super fast paced, and the goal is simple: kill as many enemies as you can, while keeping your ship from being destroyed in the process. There’s also a non-combat flight mode called “Scout Mode” which is perfect for getting used to the controllers and for those moments when you just want to take in the VR world in all its glory and beauty.


Minecraft for Windows 10

[Price: $26.99]

All the things you love about the Minecraft world can now be played out in an even more immersive way. This title is available for the Oculus Rift and supports all the features you know and love. There’s plenty more to say about Minecraft, but you’ve heard it all before. It’s all that — in VR. Get building!


The Solus Project

[Price: $19.99]

In most games, survival is simple: kill the enemy before they kill you. In The Solus Project, it’s a bit more complicated. As the sole survivor of a crash landing on a strange and beautiful alien world, you must navigate through the environment, finding food, shelter, and most importantly, a way off the planet.

The enemies in the game are best avoided. Fighting them usually results in death, but according to the developers, that’s expected. Players are meant to die several times and use each death as a learning experience. Imagine Robinson Crusoe meets Minecraft Survival Mode meets Avatar, and you may be close to what Solus Project encompasses. The environment creates a feeling of total isolation, whihc can be just as dangerous as the enemies themselves.


Damaged Core

[Price: $9.99]

Damaged Core is a first person shooter with a storyline, unlike many VR shooters. Usually VR shooters focus on online gameplay, attention to detail with the guns and graphics, and leaderboards. Damaged Core breaks away from the pack with a full-featured, ten-plus-hour story mode. The story was written by Drew Holmes, who helped create and write the Bioshock series. The dystopian future filled with robots that rebelled gives you hours of story, and also dozens of ways to play.

Robots have risen up to take over the world. Now another humanoid creation, made entirely from code, is going to help save humanity. The code is a software virus that can overtake other robot bodies to become the enemy. You play as the “code” who jumps from robot enemy to robot enemy to become them. There are 17 different enemies you could potentially become on your quest to save humanity.


The Mage’s Tale

[Price: $39.99]

If you were to classify The Mage’s Tale into a phrase, it would probably be something like “Dungeons and Dragons on steroids.”Hailed as a spiritual successor to The Bard’s Tale, The Mage’s Tale thrusts users into a land of monsters and mayhem, with danger around every turn. It looks like an amped up version of the original Elder Scrolls games. The graphics look incredible and the gameplay superb. This is easily one of the best Oculus Rift games you can buy right now.


Lone Echo

[Price: $35.99]

Lone Echo was another one of our favorites from Oculus Connect 3. The title uses absolutely beautiful graphics and particularly interesting physics to make you feel like you are floating through space. The player moves by pulling their way across a spaceship in zero gravity. It’s an incredibly immersive experience. The game also features four-player competitive multiplayer, which forces you to maneuver through zero-gravity as quickly and accurately as possible. The developers are pushing the story as the defining feature of this title though, so if you’re into complex and immersive storytelling, this will be a game you won’t want to miss.


Arizona Sunshine

[Price: $39.99]

Don’t let the name of this game fool you; this is not a VR game about relaxing in the sun in the Arizona desert. This is a high-end, gory, zombie-themed first person shooter. Developed by Vertigo Games and Jaywalkers Interactive, Arizona Sunshine pits you against the undead in the American Southwest. The game offers players a chance to shoot zombies in the head with over 25 different weapons, all of which can be handled by motion controllers.

There is a lengthy campaign broken up into short segments, just in case you don’t want to wear the Oculus headset for hours and hours. The game also allows players to freely move about the desert and explore canyons, mines, and other locations. You also have to loot the zombies you kill to scavenge ammo and other supplies. The game also supports co-op play with a friend in its campaign. You and three other friends can even face off against waves of zombies in its multiplayer Horde mode.


Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul

[Price: $29.99]

Have you tried a horror VR experience? I have gone through a few. It’s nerve wracking when it lasts 10 minutes, but imagine going through hours of it. Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul is based on the same mythology as the film series. You don’t need to know a lot about the movies to understand what’s going on, but fans will find more to appreciate.

You are stuck in a house in a woodsy neighborhood and realize there is more to this home than expected. The place is dark and all you have is a flashlight, so get ready for some good scares.


Job Simulator

[Price: $19.99]

What do you do when you get home from work and want to wind down? Continue working, of course! The Job Simulator is bundled with the HTC Vive at launch. The game is a hilarious/sandbox which helps you get acquainted with the motion controllers.

The game’s set in the future where humans are no more than a curiosity to the robots who have taken over. The most basic activities like making lunch, checking out at the grocery store or blending carrots and floppy discs become incredibly thrilling. The ability to smash objects, throw things across the rooms or stock objects lets you get a feel of the controllers but is an insanely addicting game.

The post Chronos Review appeared first on VR Source.

]]>
Adventure RPGs require a ton of investment, much like your standard RPG, but in my experience, they require you to really put on your thinking cap to solve some of the intricate puzzles they cover. That’s exactly my sentiments about Chronos for the Oculus Rift, which reminds of many classics I’ve played in the past – such as Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, on the SNES or Alundra, for the original Playstation. Chronos was developed specifically in mind for the Oculus Rift, adding the VR element to your traditional adventure RPG gameplay. Most people would scratch their head and wonder how VR can mix things up with this genre, but Chronos manages just that in how it throws VR into the gameplay and mechanics, which I’ll talk more about in a later section.

The story, though, places us in the role of our hero (male or female), who is given the arduous task of saving the world from this great evil. Something apocalyptic happened that resulted in the destruction of the modern world, which shows in the early portions of the game with barren and crumbling skyscrapers seen in the far horizon. This wouldn’t be an adventure RPG if it didn’t feature strange creatures, puzzles, giant cyclops, magic, a dragon, and our hero wielding a sword and shield. At the same time, too, our hero will be transported to another world that seemingly makes it feel like you’re dungeon hunting for most of the game.

Chronos Review 76

Gameplay

Being an adventure RPG, the gameplay consists of attacking, parrying, and shielding against enemies – where timing is crucial in defeating many of them. Generally speaking, enemies cycle through about 2 to 4 different kinds of attacks. Most of the time, you’ll be able to quickly dispose of enemies without incurring too much damage early on in the game, but as you progress, there are times when they still catch you off guard and land hits. In true RPG standard, you gain experience as you defeat them, allowing you to fine-tune and increase your skills.

Along the way, you’ll find and upgrade your weapons, special items that’ll help you enhance your skills, and the ability to combine items to produce a new tool, which you might need to open a door or access a new area. Puzzles are especially ripe in a game like this, something that shouldn’t be too out of place to those who take delight in playing adventure RPGs. However, for the uninitiated, they might find some of the puzzles difficult – to the point of frustration. That’s the case with most games in the genre, so expect going back-and-forth to previously explored places to solve the more intricate ones.

A differentiating aspect of Chronos’ gameplay is in what happens when the hero dies; you age by a full year. This is arguably one of the game’s most defining aspects, as aging causes our hero to not only gain new abilities early on, but consequently zap our hero’s strength, agility, and stamina much later on. The difficulty only increases once you pass that “prime” age of sorts, seeing that they become slower with wielding weapons and parrying attacks.

Chronos Review 71

VR Experience

Several games for the Oculus Rift try to approach the experience with a first person view, but in Chronos, the majority of the game is played from a fixed third person point-of-view. It actually reminds me of the early Resident Evil games, where you can direct your character in one frame, then only to shift to another frame. This can naturally mess with some of the directional controls, since moving left in once scene can cause the hero to move in a completely different direction in the next – so when it comes to disposing of enemies, you’ll want to try and stick to a particular frame.

This unique vantage point is also essential in planning your next course-of-action, rather than just simply running into it, only resulting in your unfortunate death because you’re now faced with multiple enemies, as opposed to just one. That’s why it’s particularly important to use the initial time to survey the scene before going in. And for the most part, this fixed third person view makes perfect sense for a game like this – plus, it rarely causes much discomfort during long periods of gameplay. In fact, even playing Chronos straight for an hour never caused me to feel nauseous or queasy.

You can say that the VR element isn’t necessarily using the Rift’s full potential, especially when we can very well see the game being played in standard form on a PC. Either way, the slight articulation used by the gameplay is a starting point for a new system like this – so I can only hope that future games will be more enhanced for VR.

Chronos Review 72

Graphics

Chronos Review 63

The designers of Chronos spent considerable time with the visuals of the game, blending an eerie post-apolocyptic scene with the real world, and huge dungeons in the other worlds that our hero travels to. While the game itself looks stunning graphically through the PC, it’s a bit softer toned through the Oculus Rift. It’s not a total deal-breaker, but something that I wouldn’t regard as a masterpiece given other VR games and experiences I’ve seen through the Rift so far.

Conclusion

Chronos is ultimately one tough game I’ve got to admit, mainly because it’s a game that’ll test your skills – both in timing when it comes to defeating enemies, as well as puzzle solving. You’ll die a handful of times trying to defeat certain enemies, which undeniably becomes frustrating over time. It’s made worse when you age and timing becomes even more important in blocking and parrying attacks. The puzzles, too, can be a mind-bender as well because some of them require our hero to backtrack and travel to previously explored areas.

This game really lives up to what you experience in other adventure RPGs, but if you’re accustomed to button-smashing action games like God of War, you’ll find Chronos to be a painful lesson in pre-planning. While this isn’t my cup of tea per se, others will be engrossed by the gameplay and story. The only thing that needs more work is in the VR experience, seeing that it barely taps into what VR is capable of doing. Maybe throw in some first-person scenes that require you move left/right to dodge heavy sword swings? Who knows, but Zelda fans will surely eat this one up.

Chronos’ $49.99 price tag is a smidgen below the $60 range we see in some other popular titles for the Oculus Rift. That’s not bad given that there’s really no other titles similar in caliber to this in the Oculus Rift store at the moment. Like I’ve mentioned early on, you’re going to invest some serious time defeating enemies and subsequently the game, so the price isn’t too bad if you have an appetite for adventure RPGs.

Sony PlayStation VR Review

October 21, 2016

Here’s a list of our favorite PlayStation VR titles around. There is no time to waste here, so let’s get you gaming.


The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR

[Price: $39.90]

Step into a fantasy world of dragons, beasts, magic, and folklore. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR is the VR version of one of the most successful RPGs of all time.

Whether you choose to stick to the story mode, take care of side quests, or just roam around Skyrim’s open world, you’re in for an amazing first-person experience. Just imagine standing in front of a dragon in VR.


Star Trek: Bridge Crew

[Price: $29.99]

Any Star Trek fans out there? You can now take a seat as a member of the bridge crew from the U.S.S. Aegis. Each player has a different role within the cabin, and they all have to work together to pilot the ship as they explore an unknown area of the universe known as The Trench.

You can pick between four positions: Captain, Helm, Tactical, and Engineer. Then use your independent skills to fight off enemies and find success in your missions. Do you and your friends have what it takes to save the universe?


resident-evil-7-thumbResident Evil 7

[Price: $27.46]

The Resident Evil franchise has been more a blockbuster action series than a survival horror game in recent years. Resident Evil 7 changed that. Creepy hallways, flashes of distorted memories, and an atmosphere that’d raise goosebumps on Freddy Krueger await those willing to brave the game — even more so if they’re willing to try it in VR.

Resident Evil 7 is fully compatible with Playstation VR. Horror games have had a bit of a renaissance in recent years, and VR has been a big part of that. The immersion of VR makes the terror all the more real.

As we said in our review, this is a real return to form for the series, despite its brand-new setting, storyline, and characters. This is easily one of the best games out there for PSVR. Motion control support would have made it even better, though.


Monster of the Deep: Final Fantasy XV

[Price: $29.99]

The Final Fantasy series has been home to some of the most amazing RPG titles — this is not one of them. Monster of the Deep focuses on a Final Fantasy XV mini-game that has been optimized for PlayStation VR.

You can chill by a lake and fish away in free mode, or jump into story mode to go against the Monster of the Deep. Fish all kinds of sea creatures and customize your rods, reels, and lures. It’s a fun little game if you like the Final Fantasy franchise and fishing.


batman-vrBatman: Arkham VR

[Price: $19.99]

Gamers across the board were surprised to see a new Batman game at E3 2016. Rocksteady had claimed Arkham Knight would be the last title in the franchise they’d produce. According to Bill Green of Rocksteady Studios, the arrival of the PlayStation VR changed that. Now gamers can do what they’ve always wanted to: become the Batman.

This particular Batman experience focuses more on the sleuthing side of things than combat. You take on the role of Batman as he attempts to solve a case involving the murder of someone he knew well. In the game you can explore Wayne Manor, the Batcave, and much more. Unlike the previous Batman titles, Arkham VR is entirely in first-person and tells a “highly focused, very personal” narrative.

The ability to physically reach for the various gadgets on your body promises to be a gameplay experience Batman fans won’t soon forget. Just don’t mix up the location of the Batclaw and the Batarangs!


Moss

[Price: $29.99]

A mouse with a sword — what more could you need? Quill the mouse is thirsty for knowledge and adventure, so she embarks on a journey through the woods. After awakening ancient magic, she needs to save her uncle from grave danger.

This action-adventure puzzle game has interesting characters, a great story, a fantastic world, and great combat. Help the little mouse solve complex puzzles as you travel with her through a marvelous world full of dangers and beautiful scenery.


Farpoint

[Price: $29.95]

Farpoint starts as you’re picking up some scientists studying an anomaly in Jupiter and give them a ride home to Earth. It all goes well until a rupture sends you flying into an unknown alien world, 800,000 light years from Earth. What to do?

Now you have to fight alien beasts, find your colleagues, survive, and get back home. This is surely a game that will keep you involved and on your toes.


psvr-worlds-thumbPlaystation VR Worlds

[Price: $19.90]

Playstation Worlds is a compilation game that puts you in a variety of different scenarios including London Heist, VR Luge, Danger Ball, Scavenger’s Odyssey, and Ocean Descent. These vastly different experiences are a great way to jump in and get to know the unique kinds of experiences you can have with the Playstation VR. This title comes in PSVR bundles, but must be purchased separately for those that opted for the core package.


DOOM VFR

[Price: $19.99]

Doom’s always been about heavy metal, big guns, and demons from hell, and Bethesda’s brought all that a VR world unlike any other.

You are playing a a cybernetic survivor, activated by the UAC to fight a demon invasion. You will have to go through fast-paced battles and challenging puzzles to restore order and prevent a catastrophic failure at the Mars facility.


eve-valkyrie-icon

Eve: Valkyrie

[Price: $39.99]

Eve Valkyrie isn’t exclusive to PlayStation VR. It was originally released for the Oculus Rift and will likely make its way to every VR platform. It looks more polished than just about any other VR-exclusive game out there, but it took years to make. No wonder why it looks so amazing!

You play as a space pilot who has to battle other pilots in space to protect your mothership. The amazing part of space battle in VR is you’re able to look around and track ships while your heading towards another ship. You can even look at your instruments and check for other enemy ships heading towards you simultaneously.


rigsRIGS: Mechanized Combat League

[Price: $22.57]

The future will have a new league of sports, where skilled pilots in mechanized exoskeletons do battle. It looks glorious. RIGS tosses players head-first into battle arenas to pit their skills against other pilots. Every RIG is different, and mastering each takes time. Players can play both single and multiplayer modes in their efforts to become king of the battle arena. The spatial awareness granted by the Playstation VR headset brings a new level of immersion to this shooter.


untildawn2Until Dawn: Rush of Blood

[Price: $19.99]

If you thought Until Dawn was scary, Rush of Blood will have you reaching for the blood pressure medication. Taking advantage of Playstation VR’s immersive nature, Rush of Blood throws blood-chilling horrors at the player in a fast-paced arcade-style shooter. There isn’t as much decision making and storytelling as Until Dawn, but Rush of Blood makes up for that by cranking up the creepiness of its atmosphere and throwing a lot of disturbing beasts at you.


Job Simulator

[Price: $19.99]

Obviously, doing more work is what you want to do when you get home. Why not give Job Simulator a spin? The game is a hilarious sandbox designed to get you acquainted with the motion controllers.

Set in a future where humans are no more than a curiosity to the robots who have taken over, you can make lunch, check out at the grocery store, blend carrots and floppy discs, and more. It’s all actually very exciting. You can smash objects, throw things across the rooms, or stack them. It’s great for getting a feel for the controllers, and insanely addicting.


Overview

The Playstation VR has only been around for a few months, but one thing is clear: the future is bright. It remains to be seen how much mainstream success the platform will have, but so far it is easily the most accessible of the three “hardcore” VR platforms.

Have you picked up a PSVR yet? If so, what’s your current favorite game?

This is a full game with plenty of features, a vast world, and many hours of gameplay.

Adult Swim Games and Owlchemy Labs (the makers of Job Simulator) have joined forces, putting you right in the middle of one of your favorite cartoon shows. This is one of the most unique Oculus Rift games so far. You play as a Morty clone and visit Rick’s garage, the house, and even alien worlds. You will have to help with Rick’s experiments, solve puzzles, slap Rick around, destroy your surroundings, walk through portals, and more. No day is boring in the Rick and Morty universe, so go have some fun, get in trouble and find your way out of it — if you can.

It’s not exactly cheap at, but this game offers a great VR experience. We know there are plenty of Rick and Morty fans out there who would love to live this insane experience.


Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope

[Price: $39.99]

Serious Sam now has 2 full VR titles, The First Encounter, and The Last Hope. The games both look pretty fantastic, based on demos first shown off at Reboot Develop 2016. The titles both offer great graphics and more explosions than you will know how to deal with. Wield loads of different weapons and shoot your way through hoards of enemies while traversing vast landscapes with various different atmospheres. Neither game will have deep and interesting stories, but they should be quite a bit of fun to play — what with all the adrenaline-pumping, exploding action.


Star Trek: Bridge Crew

[Price: $49.99]

What fan of the Star Trek hasn’t had fantasies of sitting in the captains chair of the U.S.S. Enterprise and ordering the helms person to go to warp 8. Star Trek: Bridge Crew, from developer Red Storm and publisher Ubisoft, allows you to do the next best thing by letting you experience a fully immersive bridge simulation, whether you are alone or if you play with up to three more players.

The game lets you participate in a campaign on board the science ship U.S.S. Aegis, set in the “Kelvin timeline” of the three most recent feature films. In single player mode, you are the captain giving orders to your AI crew members as you explore the region, fight off Klingons and more. The co-op mode lets four players take on the roles of Captain, Helm, Tactical and Engineer. each of which has to perform their own tasks.

In addition to the U.S.S. Aegis storyline, you can go on randomly generated missions on that ship, as well as on the bridge of the original U.S.S Enterprise from the first TV series. This is an expensive VR title, but it’s a must have for Star Trek fans with an Oculus.


Star Wars: Trials on Tatooine

[Price: FREE]

Star Wars: Trials on Tatooine is a demo by ILMxLAB. It tosses users into the Star Wars universe, placing them on the desert planet of Tatooine and allowing them to experiment with various gameplay features like deflecting blaster fire with your lightsaber. A lot of users were upset this title is a bit short, but it is free and only meant to be a demo of what Lucasfilm could potentially do with the Star Wars series in virtual reality.

Watch the Millennium Falcon fly over your head and interact with R2D2 in this awesome Sci-Fi demo and let us know your thoughts on the game.


The Assembly

[Price: $29.99]

While many games focus much more on the VR aspect as a way of integrating new gameplay elements, The Assembly takes a different approach. The game tells the story of two characters within a shadow organization known only as The Assembly. The Assembly’s purpose and motivations are not clear, but what little the player knows is simple: the organization doesn’t operate within government guidelines, or even within the realm of what society deems as normal.

The game is a first-person drama. The player makes decisions that affect their path, much like a visual novel. Exploration is important here; as the player, you can explore delicately crafted environments via smooth, polished movement controls. The game is a long-form narrative, so don’t worry about it ending too quickly — The Assembly promises many hours of gripping storytelling and engaging gameplay.


Job Simulator

[Price: $19.99]

Obviously, doing more work is what you want to do when you get home. Why not give Job Simulator a spin? The game is a hilarious sandbox designed to get you acquainted with the motion controllers.

Set in a future where humans are no more than a curiosity to the robots who have taken over, you can make lunch, check out at the grocery store, blend carrots and floppy discs, and more. It’s all actually very exciting. You can smash objects, throw things across the rooms, or stack them. It’s great for getting a feel for the controllers, and insanely addicting.


The Lab

[Price: FREE]

Want to adopt a mechanical dog, defend a castle, or try to fix a robot? The Lab is Valve’s only self-made Vive launch game. It features a series of mini games which let you explore the virtual world while learning how to use the headset. It’s a perfect proof-of-concept game to show friends when they come over to see the cool VR headset you bought.

While the pocket universe looks corny, it’s a place you can spend hours practicing your archery, which is rad. Who doesn’t love archery.


Spider-Man: Homecoming VR Experience

[Price: FREE]

This free VR game is based on the recent Spider-Man movie. Suit up as Peter Parker gets to check out his new Spider-Man suit, which has lots of cool new technology from Iron Man. After learning how to use the suit’s web shooters, you will have to complete a series of training trials. After that, you will be ready for the final part of the game as you, as Spider-Man, take on the flying villain the Vulture. This is a perfect introduction for people who have just bought their Vive headset and want to play a quick game to get the feel of VR. 


The Solus Project

[Price: $19.99]

In most games, survival is simple: kill the enemy before they kill you. In The Solus Project, it’s a bit more complicated. As the sole survivor of a crash landing on a strange and beautiful alien world, you must navigate through the environment, finding food, shelter, and most importantly, a way off the planet.

The enemies in the game are best avoided. Fighting them usually results in death, but according to the developers, that’s expected. Players are meant to die several times and use each death as a learning experience. Imagine Robinson Crusoe meets Minecraft Survival Mode meets Avatar, and you may be close to what Solus Project encompasses. The environment creates a feeling of total isolation, whihc can be just as dangerous as the enemies themselves.


Arizona Sunshine

[Price: $39.99]

Don’t let the name of this game fool you; this is not a VR game about relaxing in the sun in the Arizona desert. This is a high-end, gory, zombie-themed first person shooter. Developed by Vertigo Games and Jaywalkers Interactive, Arizona Sunshine pits you against the undead in the American Southwest. The game offers players a chance to shoot zombies in the head with over 25 different weapons, all of which can be handled by motion controllers.

There is a lengthy campaign broken up into short segments, just in case you don’t want to wear the Vive headset for hours and hours. The game also allows players to freely move about the desert and explore canyons, mines, and other locations. You also have to loot the zombies you kill to scavenge ammo and other supplies. The game also supports co-op play with a friend in its campaign. You and three other friends can even face off against waves of zombies in its multiplayer Horde mode.


Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul

[Price: $29.99]

Have you tried a horror VR experience? I have gone through a few. It’s nerve wracking when it lasts 10 minutes, but imagine going through hours of it. Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul is based on the same mythology as the film series. You don’t need to know a lot about the movies to understand what’s going on, but fans will find more to appreciate.

You are stuck in a house in a woodsy neighborhood and realize there is more to this home than expected. The place is dark and all you have is a flashlight, so get ready for some good scares.


Onward

[Price: $24.99]

If you’ve been waiting for a truly hardcore military shooter HTC Vive game, Onward is for you. It plays like a VR Call of Duty. You hold your rifle in both hands, use a walkie talkie for communication, and much more. This is easily the most realistic VR shooter out right now, and it uses roomscale to its fullest extent. That includes using the trackpad for movement, instead of the typical teleporting mechanic.


Tilt Brush

[Price: $19.99]

Tilt Brush was among the first experiences to become available for HTC Vive users. It allows artists to create 3D paintings inside a VR world (within your living room). There are no missions, quests, or responsibilities — just let your imagination flow and create whatever you wish.


Summing things up

These are just a few of our favorite HTC Vive games. There are certainly plenty of other great experiences to be had with the Vive. Tell us in the comments below what you think about the current HTC Vive games available, and which ones look the most promising!

The post Edge of Nowhere review appeared first on VR Source.

]]>
When it comes to thrills, horror games have the pedigree to get the job done. Insomniac Games’ first title for the Oculus Rift does exactly that! This third-person action-horror game brings the genre to VR, all while delivering an immersive storyline and psychological roller coaster ride that’ll keep you second guessing about what’s happening to your character.

Blending action scenes with survival tactics, Edge of Nowhere is one of the most highly anticipated exclusive titles for the Oculus Rift, which is still in short supply of some original games. Having the VR element in place, it’s sure to keep players engrossed in this psychological thriller.

Edge of Nowhere 17

Story

Now, what makes this game so great is its story-telling; it’s probably the best thing about the game. The story has us taking control of our main character, Victor Howard, who crash lands in Antarctica to find his fiancé, who is part of this expedition. In his search, Victor ends up realizing things aren’t quite right at the camp where the folks on the expedition were last located. And that’s when things start to go crazy! First of all, apparitions of people he knows begin to mess with his head as he uncovers the camp. After exploring the surrounding areas, we ultimately find ourselves confronting this alien race that’s behind the bloody scene at the camp.

Without spoiling all of the story, the game relies on a lot of flashbacks to fill us in about Victor’s relationship with his fiancé – and why exactly they are on this expedition to Antarctica in the first place. These flashbacks break up the action sequences, while also filling in the gaps about what happened in the camp and why these aliens are here. This alien race, strangely enough, seems to have a way of affecting the mind, which ultimately leads our character to question his reality.

Quite frankly, the story reminds us of a mix between John Carpenter’s The Thing and The Shining, mainly due to how it takes place in the frigid tundra. This isolation of sorts, much like what occurs in The Shining, has a way of chipping away at the mind – causing Victor to question what’s real and what’s not. All in all, the engrossing story manages to keep us riveted throughout our time playing the game – so it’s undeniably our most favorite aspect!

Edge of Nowhere 8

VR experience

During the initial scenes, the third person perspective felt a bit jarring. We suppose that’s just the way our eyes get adjusted to the movement. Lateral movement, in particular, seems to cause more of an adverse reaction, making us to feel a bit queasy during our initiation to the gameplay, but we have to say that it went away quickly. And that’s a good thing!

Controlling our character is similar to any other third person game out there, since the perspective is fixed right behind our character. The VR experience is weak in my opinion, which is a shame, since it really doesn’t have much of an impact to how we interact in the game. In some scenes, we switch to a first person perspective, but aside from that, there’s nothing much to it. After playing through another Oculus Rift game, Chronos, Edge of Nowhere just goes with the cookie-cutter third person action-adventure approach.

Edge of Nowhere 2

Gameplay

One annoyance that we have is how it’s almost impossible to move backwards, especially when you’re being overrun by monsters chasing you. Because of how the camera remains fixed behind our character, it never swings around to the other side when we’re trying to run backwards – so you end up colliding with something that gets in your way, or you end up dying.

Besides that, we do enjoy some of the action, which reminds us of some of the elaborate scenes in games like Uncharted. The ice cracks beneath you, and the next thing you know, you’re sliding and then being hurled towards an ice wall. Being in VR, things get pretty intense during some of the scenes. You’ll get those moments when you’re scared straight by those sudden surprises as something comes out of nowhere, always keeping you on your toes in what’s about to happen next. And it frequently happens, which isn’t too uncommon for an action-horror title.

The monster, or aliens in this case, vary throughout the game. Most of the time, you can use your melee weapon to dispose of the weaker ones, but others require stealth, and rock throwing. Yes, you read that right. Sure, you can use your rifle to blast them away, but ammo is in short supply, so throwing rocks to distract enemies is something that happens frequently.

Boss battles are shockingly simple, since they rotate their attacks – so once you’re able to establish the pattern, they’re quickly disposed. And that’s the thing about the game! First of all, there isn’t a variety with the enemies and weapons. And secondly, it’s an easy game to beat. In fact, we managed to finish it in under 5 hours.

Edge of Nowhere 14

Graphics

The visuals are pretty good, given the limited selection of top tiered titles that are out for the Rift. Great use of shadows give the game that eerie feeling, making you always wanting to proceed with caution into the next area, so you’re not scared out of your wits. Most of the game happens in the frigid tundra, so you’re going to see a whole lot of white in the game – and penguins. In some of the flashback scenes, which transport you to the jungle and port areas of a city, the game does a pretty nice job of replicating them to fit the mood of the game.

Edge of Nowhere 16

Conclusion

Edge of Nowhere is a fun game, but our biggest complaint is that it’s incredibly short. Most casual gamers won’t have to invest days in beating this title. Plus, it doesn’t have a whole lot of variety with weapons and enemies. You’ll only find two kinds of long ranged weapons, your pick ax to use as your melee weapon and traverse vast ice caverns, and rocks to throw at the environment to get monsters to react and investigate.

As for the VR element, the Oculus Rift isn’t really being utilized to its full potential. It’s very much in the same vein as your typical third-person action game. Indeed, you have freedom in looking around the environment, but that’s about it. Chronos has a similar premise with its VR experience, but goes a bit beyond what we have here with Edge of Nowhere because it’s integral to look around in VR to scope what’s lurking around the corner – giving us a plan of action to defeat enemies. With Edge of Nowhere, though, it’s just your ordinary third-person experience.

Most exclusive titles for the Oculus Rift are priced at $60, so the $40 cost for Edge of Nowhere seems forgiving enough to check out. The storyline, intense action sequences, and gorgeous graphics all propel Edge of Nowhere to be a good game worth checking out. For a VR-centric game, however, it doesn’t quite have that unique interaction to make you believe that it was specifically developed for VR in the first place.

Walmart’s new acquistion Spatialand may help turn its stores into VR experiences https://vrsource.com/walmarts-new-acquistion-spatialand-may-help-turn-stores-vr-experiences-12454/ https://vrsource.com/walmarts-new-acquistion-spatialand-may-help-turn-stores-vr-experiences-12454/#respond Tue, 06 Feb 2018 23:31:49 +0000 https://vrsource.com/?p=12454 The Spatialand company, which makes software tools to covernt normal content into VR experiences, was bought by Walmart.

The post Walmart’s new acquistion Spatialand may help turn its stores into VR experiences appeared first on VR Source.

]]>

Walmart may be making a big move towards developing and using virtual reality technology. The company has confirmed that its tech-based subsidary, Store No 8, has acquired the startup Spatialand, which has created tools that will help convert normal content into VR experiences.

Spatialand previously worked with Walmart to develop a VR demo that the retailer said could serve as an example of how millions of future shoppers will use the technology. Now that partnership has turned into a full acqusiiton of Spatialand. The company, based in Venice, California, has 11 current employees. The specific financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

In an interview with Recode, Katie Finnegan, the current head of Walmart’s Store No. 8 and the interim CEO of Spatialand, stated that we may not see what this team has been working on for at least a year, and perhaps longer. She added that Store No. 8 is working on retail technology that may not enter into the mainstream for another five years. That shows that Walmart is playing the long game when it comes to new retail experiences, as it tries to compete successfully with Amazon and other retailers.

It will be interesting to see how VR will be used at Walmart’s brick-and-mortar locations, as well as online. While it’s easy to imagine how wearing VR and AR devices can help when ordering products online in the privacy of your own home, it will be a bigger challenge to see that kind of technology implented in the company’s thousands of stores.

The HTC Vive Pro VR headset will include better displays and audio https://vrsource.com/htc-vive-pro-12434/ https://vrsource.com/htc-vive-pro-12434/#respond Tue, 09 Jan 2018 02:35:19 +0000 https://vrsource.com/?p=12434 The HTC Vive Pro will include upgraded audio and displays compared to the current HTC Vive headset, but there's no word yet on a release date or price tag.

The post The HTC Vive Pro VR headset will include better displays and audio appeared first on VR Source.

The HTC Vive is about to get a big brother. During CES 2018, HTC announced it will launch the Vive Pro. This new headset will include improvements in displays, audio and more compared to the nearly two year old HTC Vive.

According to HTC’s Vive blog, The new Vive Pro will include dual-OLED displays that will combine for a resolution of 2,880 x 1,600, which is 78 percent higher than what’s included on the original HTC Vive. It will also include integrated headphones with a built-in amplifier for a better audio experience. The Vive Pro also has a redesigned headstrap with a sizing dial that should make it easier to wear over long periods. Finally, the new headset will include dual microphones with active noise cancellation support, along with dual front-facing cameras.

All of this sounds great, but so far HTC has yet to reveal a price tag or a release date for the Vive Pro. Considering that the current Vive headset sells for $599, it’s likely that the Vive Pro will cost a few hundred dollars more.

Along with the Vive Pro, HTC also annonced the Vive Wireless Adaptor, which will allow both Vive and Vive Pro owners to cut the cord on their PC and experience VR games and apps wirelessly. The Vive Wireless Adaptor will use Intel’s WiGig technology to connect your home PC to the Vive headsets, and HTC says that it will use the 60Ghz band, which should offer low latency. The adaptor will launch sometime in the third quarter of 2018, but again a price tag was not revealed.

Do you want to play action-packed smartphone VR games, but don’t want to wear a headset? A company called Merge claims to have a solution with its newly announced product: the Merge 6DoF Blaster. It’s shaped like a retro sci-fi pistol, but its true purpose is to give gamers an easier way to experience VR and AR games.

According to Merge, the 6DOF (Six Degrees of Freedom) Blaster will contain high-end positional tracking technology. This will let owners who attach a smartphone to the Blaster to move around virtual worlds by physically moving, ducking and jumping in the real world. The Blaster will be released later this summer, but the company has yet to reveal its price. Merge also plans to launch an SDK for VR and AR developers as well, which will allow them to make apps that are compatible with the Blaster. It will also release the Blaster’s manufacturing specs so that hardware makers can create their own products that will work with Blaster-based apps.

In addition, the company has announced the Merge Mini, a smartphone VR headset made especially for children that are 10 years of age or older. The small and lightweight headset is designed to be used by smaller hands, and will work with most Android or iOS-based smartphones. It will also launch this summer and will be priced under $30.

Finally, the company has announced the Merge Miniverse, an online store where smartphone owners can check out VR-based games and 360-degree videos. All of these products are being demoed this week in Las Vegas as part of CES 2018.

Lenovo Daydream VR headset passes through FCC https://vrsource.com/lenovo-daydream-vr-headset-fcc-12421/ https://vrsource.com/lenovo-daydream-vr-headset-fcc-12421/#respond Wed, 27 Dec 2017 10:49:20 +0000 https://vrsource.com/?p=12421 It appears that Lenovo has a new Daydream VR headset on the way featuring BT 5.0 and a 4,000 mAH battery, according to information from the FCC.

The post Lenovo Daydream VR headset passes through FCC appeared first on VR Source.

Google’s mobile VR initiative, Daydream, may soon have another OEM on board. Thanks to the FCC and LetsGoDigital, we now know that a Lenovo Daydream VR headset is on the way. The headset, which sports model number “Lenovo VR-1541F,” is called the “Mirage Solo” and is a standalone device (it doesn’t need a smartphone to operate) arriving complete with a Daydream remote.

Unfortunately, we don’t have many concrete specifications just yet, but the device is said to feature a 4,000 mAh battery and support Bluetooth 5.0 (found in the latest flagship Android phones such as the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and Google Pixel 2). As of right now, that’s all we know. However, given that the device has passed through the FCC it’ll probably be here sooner rather than later, and we will have more details to share as they are released. As XDA points out, CES is just around the corner, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see the device make an appearance at the trade show.

HTC shows off Vive Focus headset, standalone Daydream VR device cancelled

November 14, 2017

Given that HTC’s Daydream partnership fell through, and the entry-level price of competitors such as the soon-to-be-released Oculus Go, Lenovo will have to either price similarly if not slightly lower than the Go to remain competitive. The lack of competition in the Daydream market right now isn’t helping consumers — headset retails prices aren’t being driven down — but the pricing of the Go gives hope for mobile VR enthusiasts.
