Battlezone is worth checking out on Vive and Oculus Rift

For me, Battlezone was and still is a highlight of the PlayStation VR library, albeit with the caveat that it's best experienced with a full four-person group. The roguelike campaign structure and at times fierce difficulty both necessitate...   read

Review: GNOG

GNOG isn't just a clever puzzle game with vivid color schemes and a cool name. It also has the distinct pleasure of evoking long-lost memories of my favorite childhood toy line: Mighty Max. Talk about making a great first impression!   read
