Personally, I can't wait to see what 3D Blu-Ray viewing is going to bring on the PSVR.  

Off the top of my head, nature documentaries, action movies like Jurassic World or Aliens, and even learning programs.

Regrettably, this wasn't available during holiday season so that we could show it off (always seemed like a no-brainer).

Now I just have to count the days until it's available.

bought a barely used PSVR off ebay

 

pretty cool!

 

I played a section of the robot space battle section of PSVR Worlds and actually got a bit woozy for a bit.  I had to stop playing that part.  Orientation kept switching everywhere because I was playing too fast. 

 

But it's quite impressive!

I've played a bit more of some of the VR games I have.  I'm generally fine with the experience, but I have realized that I definitely get nauseous with VR when I'm allowed to control the camera with the controller.

 

I think that disconnect between where I'm looking with my head and where I'm moving using the control triggers that.  It must be a common enough thing that the VR room exploration feature in RISE OF TOMB RAIDER prevents the player from jumping straight into that without multiple warnings and tutorials.

 

There's a galactic alien war game in PSVR Worlds that got me feeling sick.  That game also lets me move with the controller while looking around.  Lots of jumping between platforms of different orientations.

 

The PSVR also got me to buy 3D bleu-raes for Resident Evil 5 (thanks agent!), Gods of Egypt, and the extended hobutt thrillogy

FRUIT NINJA VR is the BEST VR

 

such repetitive satisfaction!

post #55 of 141

Haven't updated my thoughts on this for a while.  Here we go:

 

 

FARPOINT:

 

Holy shit.  The extra time they took to polish this really paid off.  The opening sequence where you're standing on the deck of a spaceship as all hell breaks loose ... fucking amazing.  I've played about an hour of the campaign and sunk about 4-5 hours into co-op (which, even on medium, is fucking HARD).  Just ... seamless.  Standing on the edge of a precipice on an alien planet, I forget that I'm just sitting in my den.  It's a cross between Starship Troopers and that old LucasArts game DIG. 

 

Gotta get the PSVR aim gun. 

 

 

SPORTS BAR:

 

Well, not much to do here except goof around with a few drunk buddies. Most of the games degenerate into shooting each other with nerf guns or trying to jam a waste basket onto an opposing player's head. 

 

 

RUSH OF BLOOD: 

 

Oh fuck.  So many jump scares.  SO.  MANY.  JUMP.  SCARES.  Jesus H. Christ.  A surprisingly good game, I can see why it's considered a "cult classic" already.  Some really twisted imagery that you just can't escape from .  It's a rollercoaster ride with a ton of bizarre scary imagery.

 

 

RESIDENT EVIL 7:

 

Even scarier than Rush of Blood.  Taking a break before I come back to this.  Clearly the AAA PSVR title. 

 

 

EVE:

 

Glad they added co-op missions.  Needs moar story, but it's the gold standard of cockpit VR games. 

 

 

COD JACKAL ASSAULT:

 

Free!  Cool!  Shorter than the Star Wars Battlefront VR mission, but well worth grabbing. 

 

 

UPCOMING:

 

Cannot wait for Arizona Sunshine (zombies!  plus it uses the PSVR Aim Gun!).  Star Trek Bridge Crew hits at the end of the month, and if it's half as good as IO hope, I'll sink a ton of hours into it.

 

 

 

--It is impossible to VR with a friend without descending into buffoonery and griefing.  It's great. 

 

----I'm up to about 2-3 hour play sessions.  One of the major issues with long gaming is that it can be surprisingly physical.  For Farpoint, you're constantly ducking (your ducking makes your character duck), dodging, peeking around corners, aiming down the sight of your gun, etc.  As lame as this sounds: it's surprisingly energy-sapping. 

post #56 of 141
Was waiting on your Farpoint thoughts. Fuck, that may be an instant purchase if I can find any local best buys with the gun/combo in stock.

I love it.  Buddy and I are going to be sinking many hours into co-op trying to beat it ... on medium.  The key to being effective at combat is actually rotate your body, aim around rocks, and be physical.  If you try to play it like a standard shooter, you get sniped to death. 

 

When you crash on the planet.  I mean, they need to be doing movies/television shows with VR tech. 

 

**with the exception of London Heist and the Shark Dive Game, PSVR tech has already come a long way from PSVR Worlds.  Most of those PSVR world games are instant nausea-fests.

It's best to use "nauseated" when you feel ill and "nauseous" when you are making others ill.

Star Trek Bridge Crew!  I need three more people to make a regular crew to go kill Klingons with.  And Nooj, very little motion sickness involved.

Batman

Rush of Blood.  Scary.  

If you like shitting your pants in fear, then RE7 is THE AAA title to get.  

Farpoint bundle (must have PSVR aim controller)

CoD mission is free, just download it off PS store.

If you own Battlefront, download VR mission for free.

If you can find it cheap, PSVR Worlds for London Heist and Shark Dive.  

 

IF you enjoy the CoD and Battlefront games, then get Eve Valkyrie.

Man, I gave up on Eve so fast.  The single player is super short, and the multiplayer just annoyed me.  For five levels I was doing good against I guess other rookies.  After that they throw you in with vets with way superior firepower, and it was near impossible for me to not get insta-killed through the whole match.

 

But man, that Star Trek: Bridge Crew, though....

Amazon screwed me on my preorder.  Hasn't arrived yet.

 

Eve is not for everyone ... although they added a dozen or so cooperative missions which adds some depth to the game.  The multiplayer is unforgiving.  It isn't a firepower issue, it's a "they've got 100 hours in multiplayer and I have none, I'm going to get demolished for a while" issue.  The single player mode is really just a glorified tutorial so you can get ready to take on real humans.  

 

The only notable PSVR title I haven't tried yet is Robinson Journey.  I was waiting for Move support.  May be waiting a while.  

post #68 of 141
So after all that trying to convince you to get Star Trek, I can't even play through a single multiplayer mission tonight. Every time we would engage the Warp drive, there was a bug that kept us in Warp indefinitely. This happened in all five attempts. I tried restarting the game. I tried turning off cross platform play. I hope they fix it soon because I hear the single player is short, and playing with oter people is pretty fun.
post #69 of 141

I got the PSVR Aim Controller/Farpoint bundle.

 

The game isn't anything special, but it is pretty cool to play it through PSVR with the gun.  Feels really nice.  And oddly, moving in the 3D space using the analog controller on the peripheral didn't get me motion-sick.

 

Not sure what this game is doing differently compared to some of the other VR games (that allow moving) that got me feeling nausea.

 

So, the game isn't particularly special, but it is pretty cool to essentially feel like I'm fighting on an UGLY PLANET!  A BUG PLANET!

 

And whenever these vagina-mouthed spider-crabs jumps out at me, I jump!  GAH!!!!

Play the co-op missions with a friend immediately.  Super challenging, and one of the best video gaming experiences you can have.

 

Single player is also great.

post #71 of 141

Do I have any friends who have this game???

 

 

also... it's SO satisfying to switch guns by flinging the aim controller over my shoulder

 

I really hope more games come out for this peripheral.

Take a look at your fingers in-game when you pull the trigger.  They took the time to have it match your actual fingers.  The immersion detail is astounding.

 

As soon as you get a shotgun, I recommend not testing the game's engine by turning it around on yourself.  It's a disturbing and oddly unsettling VR experience.

There's one more game out right now.  But it sucks.

 

The zombie game Arizona Sunshine which has complete campaign co-op is out in a few weeks.  Can't.  Fucking.  Wait.

Dick Wilde.  Too cartoony for me.  Folks that like the Nintendo art style might like it.

 

Arizona Sunshine, ROM Extraction, and Brookhaven Experiment seem like AA/AAA PSVR Aim titles and should be out relatively soon.  

post #76 of 141

I didn't want to gush too early.  I feel like there's been gushing overload on my part in re: VR.

 

I've given it 3-4 days, and Bridge Crew is addicting, it's got a great learning curve (easy to learn, difficult to master), deep (all four positions are REALLY different) and the production values are just amazing.  Standing on the bridge of the original Enterprise was absolutely fucking great, just amazing.  Even if our team decided to immediately switch back to the Aegis so the engineer wouldn't feel like a leper standing off to the side and because the controls are much easier.

 

Had a particularly tough mission last night.  We all had to calm down, focus, and cut the chatter.  Every time we impulsed Klingons would follow, so we had to cut engines and shields very carefully to avoid detection, helm had to use nebula-esque debris fields as a cloaking method, and tactical had to continuously jam communications so we could kill those we had to without getting detected.  Oh, and every time we impulsed the ship took massive random systems damage that had to be repaired.  Routing power, coordinated engine with tactical to keep signature low .... just a great experience.

 

Love this game.  And it's a social event!  The ready room where you all sit around the table and plan with strangers is just pure entertainment.  Plus ... SPACE!

post #77 of 141
Holy shit, the original Enterprise was insane! I did helm for a bit, and those controls, just a bunch of analog square lit up buttons, took me forever to figure out, even with the overlay turned on.

Even with the overlay it is like having a random assortment of skittles to deal with.

Resident Evil 7 is too much.  I may never finish this game.

 

Back to Enterprise.  Goddamn is that some addicting button pressing.  Finally tried out the captain's chair.  Yeah .... unexpected learning curve there, as you're the only one who can see the big picture in terms of mission parameters and ship status.  

post #80 of 141

I tried the Resident Evil demo and that alone was too much for me.  Man, I used to love horror games, but while playing that demo I was like "Yeeeaaaaaah, I don't know about this.  Do I have to look around the corner?  Can't I just park it here in the corner of this room and stare at the doorway?"

Supposedly having someone remotely view it makes it better ... seems like a golden opportunity for them to scream randomly and have you shit your pants.  

post #82 of 141

As much fun as Star Trek Bridge Crew is with a full crew, it's equally painful as a solo affair.  Even with only two people, ugh.  

 

The game also sorely needs a multiplayer competitive mode.  Once you actually have four competent people, you desperately want to recreate the end of Wrath of Khan against some human adversaries.

How far along are you? Does it ease up as all?

 

Rush of Blood was kind of at the limit for me.  RE7 may be past it. 

post #84 of 141
Resident Evil and Rush of Blood were on two totally different levels. I found Rush of Blood to be fun. The scares were jump scares, but not really bad. It was more like a horror funhouse kind of thing. Resident Evil was just dread. It's weird how much being in the game increases the horror, because if I were just playing on the TV I probably wouldn't be bothered by it. But in VR,,it's pretty dam intense. Keep in mind, this was the free downloadable demo, so I don't know how it compares to the actual game.
post #85 of 141

I didn't have a problem with the Resident Evil demo OR the Rush of Blood demo. Scary as hell, yes, but fun as hell too. I'd like to get the full versions of both.

 

I've been checking out some VR YouTube videos too. I need to make note of good ones to show my roommate.

 

I wish they's make a (good) TRON game for PSVR. Hell, just update TRON 2.0

Ahhh, look at Mr. Tough Guy!!!

 

But yeah, Rush of Blood is fun, but not scary really.

 

Also a fun little feature if you have Hulu.  There is an option to watch your video in different settings.  I enjoy watching things in the giant movie theater setting.  The quality is not the greatest, so I tend to do it more with older movies than new releases.  Though the other night my wife was watching Orange is the New Black on the Apple TV while Twin Peaks was on, so I just watched TP on the Hulu VR at the same time.  We must have looked like the worst couple ever, both in the same room, but her watching TV and me with a glowing mask on my face watching my own thing.

Ironically, the only level of Rush of Blood that isn't the slightest bit scary/creepy/unsettling is the final level.

Amazon has Rush of Blood for 10 bucks. I might have to bite on that.

Is the Batman experience worth 19 bucks?  Amazon has that for like $18 and change. I may just spend the extra buck and get from the PS store. Or should I wait a week or so and get Bridge Commander when I can afford it?

The Batman experience is worth a full 50 bucks, even though it's only like 30 minutes long.  It's that cool.  And there are a lot of hidden eggs to find during reply. So yeah, easily worth 19 bucks.

AND THANKS AGAIN!

I need to get back on that game.  There is a level with a giant spider as a boss, and I just can't for the life of me beat that thing!

Giant spider is surprisingly high difficulty spike. Make sure you have one gun with shotgun at full ammo for final sections.
