Slime Rancher is getting a free VR mode

Folks have been clamoring for Slime Rancher in virtual reality, and I definitely see the appeal. The aesthetic is simple enough that it wouldn't lose much in the transfer, the gameplay is a natural fit in terms of pacing, and the slimes wou...

Tetris Effect will be a great way to close out the busy year

When I close my eyes throughout the month of November, I'll have visions of falling blocks perfectly slotting together. Tetris Effect launches for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR on November 9, 2018. I was on board the moment I heard this ...

Review: Operation Warcade VR

I feel like virtual reality games get kind of a bad rap for being "simplistic" or "shallow." They're not always that way. When done right a VR game can take an ordinary experience and transform it into an immersive adventure, heightening it...

I have high hopes for Ace Combat 7's VR mode

As a regular Ace Combat onlooker, the most fascinating part of Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown has been PlayStation VR support. We won't be able to play the full campaign in the same vein as, say, Resident Evil 7, but there will be missions tai...

Good on Sega for keeping Space Channel 5 alive

Even if I never end up playing the new Space Channel 5 designed solely for virtual reality, the knowledge that the rhythm series is alive and well in 2018 in any capacity warms my heart. Between this and the niche-PSP-series-turned-VR-game ...

Everybody's Golf VR should be super chill

I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with Everybody's Golf last year. Not only did I feel like I was on its wavelength (no one wants to stick with a sports game when they're terrible at it), Everybody's Golf let me play as a blue-skinned, whi...

Kingdom Hearts VR is a thing, coming to PS4 this year

Kingdom Hearts is back. It even has an Eminem song to prove it! Seriously though did it ever leave? I know it's hard to keep track of all of the "782/3 Where is My Lunch Money Dream Edition" releases over the years but we got a Kingdom Hear...

Review: Hopalong: The Badlands

Virtual reality is one of those things that you kind of accept is going to be a slightly handcuffed experience. The nature of the beast dictates that what you gain in immersion and wow-factor you lose in control and full autonomy over movem...

Unsettling thriller Transference now has a prequel demo

I didn't know what to make of Transference, an upcoming psychological thriller from Ubisoft, until I played it. The game is a mystery about a troubled family set within a corrupted digital simulation. Put another way, you're going to see so...

Evil Dead: Virtual Nightmare had better be good, damn it

Evil Dead (2013) is one of my favorite movies. Like, seriously, top-three material. The visuals are gruesome and stunning, the performances are strong and unhinged, and it does exactly what a remake should do by honoring the original while ...

Review: Marvel Powers United VR

Marvel knows how to market the fantasy of becoming a hero to every facet of society, full stop. I think the culmination of that concept is the giant Hulk Gloves you may have seen at your local Toys"R"Us big box retailer. Selling back your c...

Review: Oculus Go

The Oculus Go came at a strange period in my life. I wasn't able to spend copious amounts of time in VR with my first child on the way, but now that she's settled down I'm ready to jack back in... on the go [yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhh].

The beautiful Spice and Wolf series is coming to VR

Someone sold me on watching the Spice and Wolf anime as "Economics: The Anime," which was more than enough to get me to watch it that very week -- I wasn't disappointed. While much of the focus is on the antics and travels of Kraft Lawrence...
