Alien: Covenant will get a VR experience to complement the movie

Alien: Covenant, the sequel to Prometheus and a prequel to Alien, won't be the only piece of media to feature Xenomorphs this year. In fact, it probably won't even be the most terrifying. Another project might get that edge because of...   read

Destructoid's award for Best VR Game of 2016 goes to...

The VR platform has given us so many games that aren't otherwise possible on standard platforms. Whether it's moving around like Neo from The Matrix in Superhot VR while dual wielding shotguns, or dodging, dipping, diving, ducking, and dodg...   read

ARK's newest experience foregoes survival for a Jurassic Park petting zoo

Dinosaurs seem like they can be a ferocious lot, all teeth and claws and roars. We have the luxury of not really having to prevent them from, you know, killing us. If dinosaurs start roaming the earth again, we probably have to worry about...   read

Modern VR is in its infancy, but three big publishers came out of the gate swinging this year. Oculus, Valve, and Sony are all vying for your attention (and by proxy, an entire paycheck to pay for the tech), and in that confrontation, some ...   read

There's a new chill-out-in-VR simulator called Perfect

Which game(s) do you use to demo virtual reality to friends and family who aren't typically into gaming? Job Simulator and Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes have been two of my go-to titles. They're good, silly fun and are both very much so...   read

Review: Oculus Touch

VR has had a curious impact on the industry. It's not mainstream yet. It's pricey. It's unwieldy. Yet, it's all executives and developers are talking about. We're not quite at the apex of the "revolution," but we do have platform wars curre...   read

Review: I Expect You To Die

The VR industry is really starting to take shape. Sure, a lot of the games out there are still limited experiences -- guided tours, if you will -- but even in the infancy of the technology, it's something we haven't quite seen before. Is th...   read

2K's NBA VR game reminds me of the early Wii days

My experiences with virtual reality have reinforced the idea that these games are (almost always) better in person than they appear in trailers. For the longest time, Rigs: Mechanized Combat League seemed over-the-top cheesy and easy to wr...   read

Review: The Unspoken

I wasn't really on board with many of the waggle-fests that littered the Wii's library both at launch and near the end of its life. Many titles just felt like an excuse to sell more Wiimotes, and don't even get me started on the Motion Plus...   read

Review: Eagle Flight

Ubisoft loves the open world shtick. Loves it. It just can't help itself, and I'm imagining that during every company pitch, Yves Guillemot adds at the end of it "but yes, how can we make it open world?" Yet this time for its foray int...   read
