  1. God of War (2018) - Magni-ficent!

    I'm pretty much in the same boat as the majority seem to be here. It's okay so far, again only about 2 hours in, but I was expecting more from the off (which is my own fault). I think the combat is okay but at the moment I'd say I prefer the combat in Shadow of Mordor or the Arkham games, however again that's a little unfair as I'm comparing full opened skill trees with the very bare bones of GoW at the moment. Having said that the combat is incredibly meaty and you get a real sense of weight. I think the one shot nature of the whole thing is incredible with no breaks for cut scenes however at the moment I'm getting a bit of an Uncharted vibe of just moving from combat arena to combat arena, however at least the combat in this is fun (I personally utterly detest Uncharted despite having completed 1 and 2). I'm also getting a really strong Tomb Raider (reboot) vibe from it at the moment, and the skill trees and crafting all seem to fit the current mould of these type of games ala Arkham, Shadow of Mordor, HZD. It obviously looks utterly stunning, however I still think HZD is more impressive because this feels far more enclosed (well at least at the moment), there are too many areas that feel like they are just pretty corridors even when outside. I think I've also been spoilt by Wipeout VR, I'm just not sure anything in 2D is ever going to blow me away again after playing that. Anyway I'm certainly enjoying it and I've no doubt as more options open up (and there does look to be a lot you can upgrade) it will only get better.

    Glad that pretty much everyone who is now picking this up with moves is appreciating just how amazing Superhot is. I need to have another go on GT's VR mode now it has a proper time trial however everything is taking a back seat to Wipeout at the moment.

    Standing and move controllers with smooth motion and turning. It’s so much better and more immersive than with the DS4.

    @Gloomy Andy do you need to remove the camera? I basically leave everything but the headset connected all the time. Then it’s just a case of plugging the two headset cables in and you are good to go. The VR box that plugs into the PS4 is quite small, and the camera can just perch on the top of the TV.

    That’s a shame as its had some great games in the last year.

    Another vote for Statik, it’s a brilliant puzzle game and also a great introduction to VR. It was one of the first games I got and is still up there as one of my favs. It’s a no brainer for less than 6 quid.

    Assuming you have moves you have to get Superhot VR, probably the best use of VR there is and the tied in second place for best game on the system with Rez (both just behind Wipeout).
  9. WipEout Omega Collection - VR Update out now

    It's quite interesting the VR sickness and how it is affecting different people. I'm pretty immune to it but there are games (Skyrim with the controller as an example) where I get a little sense of discomfort, and then Bound which made me feel really sick. However in this I feel utterly comfortable with all the comfort settings off and on pilot tracking. I think partly because in my head I imagine that in some kind of futuristic racer they must have come up with some kind of inertial damping field inside the cockpit to enable it to be possible, otherwise you'd be splatted against the seat as soon as you accelerated, let alone took a corner! So to me that lack of feedback doesn't break the sense of presence in the same way it does in something like GT Sport where I know what a car feels like to really drive. (Ignoring the fact that I don't have a wheel so it's weird to steer a car that way, as opposed to a futuristic racer which I could imagine controlling with a joypad, because I've always done it like that )

    Yes I've watched some people's first goes and they all seemed to be completely unable to turn them off. Having said that the names of the options really don't make any sense at all in the menu (it's the only criticism I have of the game). What's even more silly is that when it auto turns them on for some initial tracks it explains to you what they are, but using completely different names. Anyway been playing for 2 hours this morning and I still can't believe it every time it loads into a race, it still doesn't seem possible. Oh it's also worth mentioning how fantastic the 3D sound is in this. Earlier was I was some way ahead of the pack when one of the racers let off a quake and I could hear it catching up with me as was flying round the track, just incredible.

    I believe you can even play online against people playing in 2D

    I love all the first play videos that are up for this, they basically mirror exactly how I felt which was. Loads game and menu comes up - Oo, lovely new menu this looks nice. Load into game - Oh My God that looks amazing, like the best thing I've every seen in VR. Start race - Fuck Me!!! How is this possible, this is the most unbelievably incredible thing I have ever experienced. Then grin for hours. I've played about 4 hours of it now and I'm still completely blown away every time I load into the race by what has been achieved with this game. As a lot of people have pointed out in VR I am suddenly noticing lots of incidental details that I've never noticed while playing it in 2D. What is even more amazing is the amount of stuff that is going on off track as it were. You really notice it after you have completed the race and are flying round the track on auto pilot. Things like ships flying around in the sky or cars and lorries driving along the road. It's the kind of stuff that you would imagine would have had to be sacrificed to make this work in VR, and to be honest no one apart from Digital Foundary would have noticed it, but it's all there!

    Yeah I have it set to pilot view now. Barrel roll is intense. First track I tried pilot tracking on was Sol, OMG what a rush!!!,
  14. WipEout Omega Collection - VR Update out now

    This isn't anywhere near as bad as people seem to think it might be, I played for an hour and a half straight and had no issues at all, although I'll admit to not being that prone to motion sickness in VR. Also if you play with the VR setting to cockpit then your view will stay centered while the ships rolls around you so that it's fine for barrel rolls.
  15. Warframe - Plains of Grindolon

    I must say I'm totally in love with this game. Closing in on the 200 hour mark and there is still so much stuff to do. I'm probably in a bit of a purple patch at the moment having a lot of quests open up as I've opened all the junctions. But at present I've got 3 warframes building (already have 8), pushing on towards mastery rank 11, levelled up with Steel Meridian so I've got fully levelled Scattered Justice in my potated and 2xforma Hek. Also recently got Helios Prime and Braton Prime to go with my Lex Prime. I've also really got to grips with a play style for my Rhino which I run most of the time (got to love iron skin), although having recently got Limbo I think I will start to spend some time with him as well, really interesting warframe. There is just so much to do, which while if can be grindy in a lot of ways you can essentially be doing lots of grinds at the same time and it always feels like you have achieved something from a play session, and the moment to moment level traversal is so great. I think the xp to MR thing is genius as well, it means that rather than just finding something you are comfortable with you essentially have to try out new weapons and warframes, and not only that but given them a good go while you are levelling them up. It just works so much better than Destiny where you pick up a weapon, try it for 5 mins and think, nah this is crap and go back to what you always use. Also my goodness it can look wonderful at times, the Lua and Void levels are gorgeous.
