Hey, guess who has come back! It’s been a while since I’ve posted – don’t worry, I am feeling shame.
So, I was gifted a Playstation VR last weekend by my awesome friends and PaulN6. Very exciting! Naturally I couldn’t wait to try (and neither could they!) so we set it up straight away.
The best game we tried that day HAD to be “Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes”. If you’ve never heard of the game, I seriously recommend checking it out. You need at least 2 people to play as only 1 person can see the bomb and the others have a manual to help you disarm it as you describe what you can see. This game works perfectly with the VR as everyone else can see the manual on the TV, whereas you can only see the bomb whilst wearing the VR headset.
We also tried a few of the mini-games on Playstation VR Worlds, The Heist being the most interesting of the lot. The only thing that was frustrating was the motion sickness! I was wanting to keep playing, but when the nausea kicks in you really have to stop or pray you have a bucket-like object nearby.
Since Saturday, I’ve picked up a few games: Surgeon Simulator; Job Simulator; Tethered Demo; and Fated The Silent Oath.
Job Simulator is a very not-serious game and I would recommend it as I didn’t experience any motion sickness while playing. However, PaulN6 and I did need to reshuffle the living room so I had enough space to play without hitting the motion controller off the wall or door – that was the only negative really.
Surgeon Simulator is again, a not-serious game but damn was it difficult! My patients kept dying during the kidney transplant before I even managed to get to the kidneys. The highlight of the whole experience is when I accidentally pinged the large intestine across the room…. the memory still makes me giggle…
I want to be able to recommend Fated, but I didn’t really have the most enjoyable experience playing. It was rather dull, moving around seemed clumsy and the story was just a bit “meh”. I will say though, that the artwork was very pretty, artistic and colourful.
I wasn’t too sure about Tethered on whether to buy it or not, so I was super glad there was a demo. Beautifully created little world, cute little characters, and all-in-all very nice to look at. Not sure if I would buy the full game yet though… I think I need to play the demo a few more times before I decide.
All in all, I love the Playstation VR and the more I play, the less the motion sickness becomes and hopefully I will be nausea free when Skyrim VR comes out in November! Super psyched for that one so watch this space for my thoughts on that when it hits.
If you have any Playstation VR games that you loved or had a great time playing, please share!
