When Ghostbusters came out, I think we can honestly say it was the movie that had it all. Great cast, great car, Slimer and the one-liners were top notch. I knew then that with some time and patience and sprinkled with Virtual Reality, we could finally be the ones to be put into the action and maybe, just maybe be hired as the next Ghostbuster. And I for one am glad that Sony Pictures Virtual Reality is bringing this experience to… Read more.
“Da plane Boss, da plane”. When that plane flew to Fantasy Island every week you couldn’t help wonder what celebrity was on the plane and going to visit the island.

I am happy to say that Ultrawings for the PlayStation VR from Bit Planet Games allows me to live out that fantasy. Being an open-world and the first… Read more.
When you ride a roller coaster in Virtual Reality a couple of things will happen.

*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.

What about parts of the world where it may be Summertime, but it’s just too hot to go outside? What if you really want to be that master of… Read more.
I really like this time of year. We have Winter, we have the holidays and sometimes some of us get snow and some of us live where there may not be any snow at all and that can be ok as well.

But when you add a food truck and need to help serve the dead, then you get to become that awesome food truck entrepreneur who hopes that one day you may get to have your own show no matter… Read more.
Whenever Superman came out and we saw him fly, it was one of the coolest things ever. Able to fly not only on our planet but in the peaceful breath taken space. When I saw him go over Earth with the Sun just over the planet, I have always wanted to fly. I thought one day we will be able to fly. Well, it may still be a long time for us to fly like Superman, but what Pentadimensional Games… Read more.

This is what I love about VR and what The Farm 51 has done with the Chernobyl VR Project. It has taken history with VR in mind and has given us a real connection to a most troubled and sad time in history. So what is the Chernobyl VR Project?… Read more.

A house, a murder, and a motive. Every since I played the board game it was fun to see who was the suspect with what weapon in what room. Then when the movie came out, it took what I loved about the board game and brought it on the big screen to have that inner child smile. The Invisible Hours by GameTrust and Tequila Works have taken the formula of a board game to a classic movie and made it the new… Read more.
It’s scenes like this from movies like The Martian that I some times pause or just look at the picture. I wonder not what if, but when we actually start sending astronauts to Mars or other solar systems, if something were to happen, if somehow they become lost, how long would they survive and could they actually make it. Then I start to wonder, what if we could be put in a situation like that now to see how you… Read more.

When I first saw The Last Starfighter, it was instant love. “Alex Rogen was a small-town boy with big dreams. But in his wildest dreams, he never suspected that tonight he would become the Last Starfighter.” This movie had such an awesome feel to it, that I still think it can still hold up to this day and how awesome would this be in VR. And that is exactly what Orange Bridge Studios has done with End Space for the PlayStation VR.… Read more.
Ah, cartoons. Some are so impressionable from our childhood that one may start to wonder and dream what it would be like to be part of that universe. One of those cartoons I loved was Voltron.

We have Shiro who controls the Black Lion, Keith controls the Red Lion, Lance controls the Blue Lion, Pidge controls the Green Lion and… Read more.
Side-scrolling brawler games have been around for a long time. There is something about going around the different levels and fighting the enemies and racking up the combos.

But sometimes, something so bad happens that a terrible sadness is carried with it and the soul can’t rest.

And what CCP Games has done has made good on those hopes and dreams with Sparc for the PlayStation… Read more.

Ninja Theory has brought us some amazing games such as Devil May Cry, Heavenly Sword and the most recent HellBlade to our lives. But when I saw that they also made DEXED for PlayStation VR, I knew I had to check this one out and I am glad I did.

One hand controls… 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 tried Crystal Rift I was brought back to those games where we must explore and try not to fall in the pits of fire… Read more.

Virtual Reality. It allows us to do anything we want. We can let out our aggression in new ways and not get in trouble for our actions. There are different experiences you can have.

Infinite Minigolf for the PlayStation VR is something that does not come along very often. When I first played the review copy, it said there were over 700 courses to play. See, with Infinite Minigolf from Zen Studios, you get that and more. In fact, you get infinite courses. How you might ask? That is the beauty of it as this is a cross-platform game. Meaning you can create courses and upload them to share. That means if someone on a… Read more.

What if Joe Dirt, Duke Nukem, and Kid Rock were combined and living in the swamps as an exterminator, what would that be like? I will tell you what it would be like, just like Dick Wilde. When you first look at Dick Wilde just by the screens you might think oh it’s just a wave shooter and there are dozens of those. Well, I can honestly… Read more.
