One of the games for the Quest 2 that had a lot of people talking when it was first announced and even after they played it was Resident Evil 4.

You can still hear the heartbeats in each of the many rooms of the Barclay Mansion, but one has to wonder if… Read more.

What if you could enter a mind? What if once you entered the mind what you knew was generated for you in a reality that is not known, but reimagined of how one reality could become the normality? What if you were the one being tested as the subject? These were some of the questions I had in what I experienced. But do Developers Spectrevision and Ubisoft Montreal and Publisher Ubisoft allow us to enter one’s mind…to become the experiment… Read more.
Horror and Sci-fi + Space + Stealth + Scares + Virtual Reality = The perfect combination. When it comes to horror games they can be scary. When you add the Sci-fi atmosphere with the horror element, there are certain things we have come to be aware of, enjoy, and our expectations or at least the hope that our expectations will be somewhat met part of the way. So when Developer Firesprite first announced their vision of what we are normally… Read more.
I have said it before and I will say it again, the horror genre and Virtual Reality go together. It can be physical, psychological, or even found footage or a point of view. No matter what the case, something about the unknown, the ability to possess, and even just preying on our darkest fears. As important as immersion and sound are to Virtual Reality, the atmosphere…the lighting…the very basics of sounds from a chair moving to the screams of the… Read more.
There is something about horror games that draws us in. You can sit on the couch or your favorite chair. You can play with the lights on so you know everything will be alright. You could take it one step further and turn out all the lights just to add to the atmosphere. All of this is fine as you have that wall of space. What do I mean by that? Well, when we play, you see the T.V. and… Read more.
There was something special when Until Dawn came to PlayStation 4. From the graphics to the story. Something just kept wanting us to be in that world. Then here comes Until Dawn: Rush of Blood for PlayStation VR. A roller coaster shooter of a nightmare that made us jump in Virtual Reality. So what does Supermassive Games do? They took what works in Until Dawn and Until Dawn: Rush of Blood and made a prequel worth playing in The Inpatient for PlayStation VR. Like I mentioned, The Inpatient is a prequel to Until Dawn that has psychological elements… Read more.
*Please keep this in mind, this is a Japan-only game so you will need to create a Japenese PSN account to even get access. So with a Japan-only game, there might be a slight disadvantage if you cannot read Japanese. I say slightly only because the Developer has some parts in English including the dialog of the characters. But if there is an option I missed that allows showing how to change the language within the game itself, I will… Read more.
Your voice. It can sound fearful, it can harness your screams, and sometimes, just sometimes, it allows it to become your eyes. And when you start to think about taking your voice and teaming it up with darkness to then allow your sight that becomes a wonder. Now if you take all of this and add it to Virtual Reality, then you have something that is magically based on a what-if into something special, then you will know exactly what… Read more.
When you take the horror genre and mix that with Virtual Reality, good things can happen. Don’t Knock Twice from Wales Interactive takes a working formula with some very much appreciative controls and throw that into PlayStation VR, add some creepy sounds and watch as some good things happen. In case you did not know, Don’t Knock Twice is the VR companion to the movie of the same name which is based on a witch of the demonic nature that appears when you guessed… Read more.
I am going to start off by saying this now...if you have a weak heart, a tendency to scream loud because you are scared, easily have nightmares or usually say $&*#@()!~)(@#)$, then be prepared, because you just might experiences all of these and say things far worse then you would have ever thought. Horror games and VR, something about this combination works and it works very well...almost too well here. Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul from VRWREX is a VR… Read more.
When I first wrote about The Bellows I quoted a saying by John Irving. "Of all the things that you choose in life, you don't get to choose what your nightmares are. You don't pick them, they pick you." And this is how good it can be when you mix VR with horror or in this case The Bellows from Castle Steps with PlayStation VR. In The Bellows, you play as a man in his house trying to evade the storm.… Read more.
Dying: Reborn from the great people over at Oasis Games has come to the PlayStation VR and for one I am glad. In Dying: Reborn you play as a detective who is trying to piece together what is going on. A Clue type of sorts if you will. Mixed with a very immersive feel along with impressive visuals. When I played I did not go in thinking this would be another type of the same game as well as it shouldn't,… Read more.
