Job Simulator scores a free endless mode

Finally, a reason to revisit the excellent albeit fleeting Job Simulator. This slapstick virtual reality game is one of the first things I recommend new VR owners check out, but once you've gone through it a few times, there's not much ince...

Review: Sparc

I feel like I've typed the phrase "VR has potential" a million times, but it's true. When I'm presented with perfect conditions in a perfect setting, where two people can have VR headsets and engage in a multiplayer sporting event, VR is un...

Gorn is a good-ass name for a video game about clobbering buff gladiators until their meaty heads fall off. Honestly, I'm not sure it can be topped (that's your cue to do your thing in the comments, gang). This is another collaboration bet...
