But what was so special is how you were just thrown in, with no clue of what was going on. All you had was a book that allowed you to travel to the island of Myst. By solving the puzzles, you could then… Read more.

Back on June 23, 2017, I had the opportunity to review an experience that made me appreciate the nature of the animals. To see how they interacted not only with each other but how they were in their natural habitat. It made really appreciate life and journey. It allowed me to relax and just become one with nature. That experience was Virry VR: Feel the Wild (which you can read about it here). So when I heard Fountain Digital Labs was… Read more.
Dinosaurs have always been fascinating. The size of them to the sounds they can make. Did some travel in herds? Are some relatives of birds? So much history we can learn from.

He talked about how the island was talking to him and the secrets and powers it held. He was becoming one with the island and gaining the secrets and power as he had to figure out what was… Read more.
Racing. It has its place. You want to win. You have the drive…the adrenaline to win. But do you have the desire to become champion? This was all going through my head when I played Sprint Vector from Survios on PlayStation VR. And I have never felt more like an intergalactic champion like I have when playing and this is a very good thing.

My own arcade? Yes, please! This is exactly how I felt from the moment I entered and saw all the games. Brought to us by Mechabit and published by Archiact VR, The Pierhead Arcade is allowing us to play the coin-based games and brings something very special to the PlayStation VR and this is a very good thing. When you first start The Pierhead Arcade, you are standing at the pier. The building looks dark like no one is around. But before you do… 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.
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 remember thinking it would be awesome to fly that plane and pretend I was carrying passengers or cargo to the island in Virtual Reality. 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.
*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.
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. For those of us that may not get snow and have that white snowy Christmas like some of us remember from our childhood, Mythical City Games just may help you relive some of those childhood memories with Snow Fortress for the… Read more.
Sometimes when we use our imagination it can be a good thing. Many times we read stories that can give us that paint by number feel to them and then sometimes it takes a game like Discovery by Noowanda comes along to give the tools to paint in the numbers and let the door open our creative minds. I will say this, to begin with, Discovery will remind you of familiarity with something that has been around a while, but without the crafting survival. And… 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.
There is something about history. Something about being able to read about, but some times if you are not able to experience it, it might not have the same meaning. 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.
We have all played our share of platformers over the years. Some have us jumping barrels, some have us collecting coins, and even some have memorable boss battles.

In Light… 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. Five pilots chose to command the Lion Force known as Voltron. Each of the pilots controls a different color lion. 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.

Bloody Zombies take place in London (yes something about London and zombies just… Read more.
"People once believed that when someone dies, a crow carries their soul to the land of the dead. But sometimes, something so bad happens that a terrible sadness is carried with it and the soul can’t rest. Then sometimes, just sometimes, the crow can bring that soul back to put the wrong things right." Truer words have never been spoken in such a transferring experience than with Flight School’s Manifest 99 for the PlayStation VR. I want to say this first before… Read more.

When you take the horror genre and mix that with Virtual Reality, good things can happen.

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. DEXED is an on-rails VR game that uses the PlayStation Move controllers (you can try the DualShock 4, but the Move Controllers is what you will probably want to go with on this one). One hand controls… Read more.
The Lost Bear from the Developers Odd Bug Studio and Publishers Fabrik Games LTD is a 2D platformer in a hand-drawn world. And what the Publishers and Developers have done with this art is truly amazing that has yet to be seen in VR and just may have set a new level of standard when it comes to combining 2D with 3D immersive VR and this is a very good thing. When I first started The Lost Bear I knew when that… 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.
Some of the games that help expand what we may know now can be bounced off a certain type of genre of games, dungeon crawlers. You might have to find a key or a potion or fight a monster. All that nostalgia and more are present in Crystal Rift by Psytec Games for PlayStation VR. 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.
CastleStorm has been on every system from PS3 to Vita and now Zen Studios is giving it the VR treatment on PlayStation VR and I can say this is a very good thing. CastleStorm in case you do not know is an Action/RPG/Tower Defense game as you defend your castle from enemy troops all while using your power to stop and dismantle the enemy while recruiting peasants or minions if you will fight your battles. When you first start CastleStorm VR in the single-player campaign,… 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. You can drive, enter the world of horror, and you can even shoot things and I mean shoot things like never before. And what Survios has done with Raw Data has taken what we know about the first-person combat genre, turned it on its head, threw it out… Read more.
Time only moves when you do. These words could not be more true with SUPERHOT VR from The SUPERHOT team has finally come to PlayStation VR and this is a very good thing.

Oh, Tiny Trax with your Epic racing in your tiny world. How I love thee! This amazing slot car arcade racing game comes from Futurlab and I will say this, seeing videos of Tiny Trax does not come close to the awesomeness that needs to be experienced on PlayStation VR. Even before the game begins, when that car races towards you and drifts just for the title alone, smiles will race across your face. While you are sitting, the courses surround and the cars… Read more.
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.

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.

With a Descent playstyle with 6 degrees of freedom, it only takes a few minutes to get used to your ship as you zoom through the caves with ease and something so… Read more.
Ancient Amuletor by Time of VR finally releases on PlayStation VR and that is a very good thing. Some have classified this as a wave shooter or a tower defense type of game and to me, it's an awesome combination mixed in with a Gauntlet type of play.

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.
When Virry VR: Feel the Wild was announced for PlayStation VR, I got kinda excited.

Published and developed by… Read more.
Once there was a game that some of you may remember called Paper Boy. Your goal was to deliver as many newspapers to your customers while avoiding dogs, bees, vehicles and whatever else was thrown at you. In Special Delivery from Meerkat Gaming, that same premise and frustration are brought to you in PlayStation VR and that really is not a bad thing! Once you start Special Delivery you are inside your room where you are given some options as you can start a… Read more.
I love games like Monopoly, checkers and even Uno. I have always loved the idea of chess and I know people love the game. I mean when they have different themed pieces of chess from Star Wars to Harry Potter, you know people can get serious about the game. So going into Chess Ultra for the PlayStation VR, I will say I have never played a game of chess in my life and didn’t know what to expect with taking my non-knowledge… Read more.

Ever since seeing how the golf courses were floating in the air and the way the Jetsons would travel through space, I knew that one day that Golf in outer space… Read more.
Welcome to Swamp Life: When certain games come out, I like to think about what if. 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.
