Review: The Climb 2

It's crazy to think that it's been nearly five years since The Climb! That's about how long mainstream VR tech has been out, and thankfully, a handful of plucky studios are still plugging away at VR games. I mean, it's a niche at this point...

Review: Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond

We are now in an era where impressive-looking VR games are somewhat commonplace; it's no longer a selling point all on its own. So when I heard that Respawn Entertainment was working on a new Medal of Honor for VR, my interest was piqu...

Review: Oculus Quest 2

Budding tech industries move quickly and often leave prior products in the dust: it's the nature of the business. I've said this a lot having covered every major gaming-oriented headset since the first consumer version of the Rift was relea...

Ready At Dawn is now a part of Oculus Studios

Some of us still associate Ready At Dawn with the cinematic PS4 shooter The Order: 1886, but recently, the studio has leaned into VR with games like Lone Echo and its in-development sequel Lone Echo II. That path is even more set in stone t...

The VR parkour game Stride isn't for the faint of heart

VR parkour, as a concept, is full of thrilling potential – but only if it's done well. Only if it nails that sense of scale, speed, and danger without making you ill. After seeing the trailer for Stride, a first-person platformer comi...

Review: Half-Life: Alyx

Every so often we tackle dual reviews, where two authors share their takes on a game and provide a single combined score. What better game to bring that concept back than Half-Life: Alyx, the first new Half-Life game in ages. Gath...

The Humble VR Bundle is a good starter kit for new VR players

If there's one thing you'll quickly (and continuously) learn as a new VR owner, it's that sales are crucial. After breaking through that initial financial barrier to entry, it's important to build out your early library with restraint. When...

Twin Peaks VR is a trip down memory lane

For better or worse, Twin Peaks VR is about what you'd expect: a chance to spend a bit more time in David Lynch and Mark Frost's subversive universe. It doesn't look particularly great, even by virtual-reality graphics standards, but I coul...

Review: Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series - Episode 3

It's hard to believe that the inaugural episode of Vader Immortal, a VR (and Oculus)-only experience came out in May. Although it was very hurried I was hooked from the first run, and needed to see where it all ended. Naturally it can'...
