    Beat Saber

    Been on it for a few hours tonight. Need some chill-out time before bed I think, otherwise the everything’s going to come rushing toward me when I close my eyes. It’s so, so good, though. Leaderboards seem really slow to update tonight, but I’m not getting good enough scores to worry about that just yet. Even my my wife is addicted to this, and she doesn’t play VR games at all usually.

    The rumble and sound feedback when you cross the streams is so satisfying. *crosses the streams again* Awesome.

    Out today on PSVR. Lots of new PSVR users thanks to all of the deals flying around at the moment, so hopefully this will sell well. I managed a few quick goes before work this morning, and it's just as good as I remember. Proper "in the zone" gaming one you get going. Love it.

    Take it slow. If you start to feel queasy or anything, just switch it off for a day or two. If you manage to make yourself properly unwell, switch it off for a good few days. It's so tempting to try and push through and keep playing, but that just makes it worse. And yeah, sticking to the less intense games at the start is a great way to ease into it, meaning you can spend more time playing with it.

    Downloading now. So hyped. Does it have leaderboards?

    Beat Sabre is out TOMORROW. It's the most exciting thing (for me) to come to PSVR so far, and I'm including Astro Bot in that. I played BS earlier this year and it's just everything I ever wanted for a VR rhythm game. Requires Moves.

    There are loads, yeah. You want the Demo Disc 1 and 2, for starters. They include demos of loads of games. Other freebies it's worth checking out (IMO) are: Chainsmokers - Paris The Last Guardian VR Demo Playroom VR Allumette COD Jackal Assault And if you already have Star Wars Battlefront, the VR mission on there is great. There's a FREE VR section on the store: https://store.playstation.com/en-gb/grid/STORE-MSF75508-VRFREE/1 Edit: The Chainsmokers one doesn't seem to be on the store any more. Shame, as it had a lovely "flying through the clouds" section.

    What are the chances of Beat Sabre getting a physical release?

    Astro Bot - PSVR - Game of the year 2018.

    Yes. No need for Moves.

    GRIP: Combat Racing - Out Now on Switch (and other platforms)

    Waiting justified, it seems. Hopefully they'll have sorted out some of the issues by the time they drop the price.

    FTFY. Sorry, I hate that whole FTFY thing, but I honestly think it'll be £30 on the PS. Still getting it. Can't wait.

    Your Very Best Gaming Year

    Indeed. That was very much the era I was hinting at with my Dreamcast/Gamecube comments. I have such fond memories of that period also, but it's been a really long time since I've had such positive vibes about games as I have this year.

    Your Very Best Gaming Year

    2018 is my very best gaming year. I've been gaming for a (very) long time, like most of us, but this year has completely blown me away with the consistent quality and levels of excitement and enjoyment I've felt with the games I've played. My gaming time is limited, so I have to pick and choose what I play carefully. But this year I've played: God of War Spider-man Astro Bot Dark Souls Remaster (on Switch, which is the important bit) Read Dead 2 MTGArena I can't even remember what I was playing earlier this year. Those games alone have made me personally more happy and content as a gamer than I can ever remember being. They've all been widely discussed on here, and many of them are not without their issues, but from my perspective they've been pretty much perfect. I've absolutely loved playing them all. So if not this year, what has been your best gaming year? Has it been recent, or do you still yearn for the glory days of the Dreamcast/Gamecube when everything was amazing? If it wasn't 2018, for me it would probably be somewhere around 2005, where I wasn't playing anything other that WoW, and got completely and utterly immersed in everything about that game and made many new life-long (I hope) friends.
