It looks like Sony’s big bet on the VR first-person shooter (FPS), Farpoint, had paid off, at least in the UK. The UK’s weekly games chart, compiled by GfK and shared via The Association for UK Interactive Entertainment (UKIE), reveals that Farpoint debuted at number two in the weekly charts for the last seven days….

Japan’s Superhuman Sports Society Has Created Two AR Contests

From my perspective of being an American, Japan is consistently willing to push the envelope when it comes to entertainment. Popular shows like American Ninja Warrior and Iron Chef America are modeled after Japanese shows and clips from Japanese entertainment go viral regularly for outlandish activities and inspire spoofs galore. With such adventurous creative minds contributing…

Unfortunately this time it’s not in the…

Syren Turns From Survival Horror To Shooter With Free Second Chapter

Reusing assets isn’t something we’d normally encourage a game developer to do. It implies you’re recycling resources to cut corners and make a quick buck. It’s interesting, then, that Syren’s surprise new chapter, released this week, doesn’t feel like that at all. And that’s not just because it’s available for free. Taking place after the events…

Gorgeous Space Combat Game Everspace Finally Gets VR Support

When Rockfish Games announced its new space action game, Everspace, a few years back, we were pulled in by its stunning graphics.

Cosmic Trip Is Finally Getting A Full Release, Deluxe Edition Revealed

Wilson’s Heart Is Getting Full 360 Degree Tracking Support

It seems like every time Oculus releases a major Studios project support for 360 degree setups is something of an afterthought. That was the case with Epic Games’ Robo Recall, and last month’s excellent psychological thriller, Wilson’s Heart, lacked 360 support too. But that’s changing soon. Developer Twisted Pixel recently took to Reddit to explain…

Farpoint Review: A Good Game That Could Have Been Great

Farpoint is a rare game. It’s rare in the sense that it’s one of the first truly made-for-VR titles that is 100% based on full analog stick movement without teleporting around. But most importantly, Farpoint is rare in the sense that it really feels like it has the polish and breadth of a AAA game….

Play Super Mario VR And More Nintendo Classics With 3DNES

I couldn’t tell you how many times I’ve played through Super Mario Bros, but never quite like this. I just became Mario himself; I hopped over Goombas, travelled down pipes, and grew bigger after eating mushrooms. No, I’m not on drugs; I just played 3DNes with my HTC Vive. You’ve probably heard of 3DNes before….

Super Amazeballs Brings Perplexus To VR This Week

Squishies Is An Adorable VR Puzzler From The Creators of Typoman

When Brainseed Factory, the developers of Typoman, told me they were making a VR game, I’ll admit Squishies isn’t what I envisioned. The team’s previous game was a devilishly smart 2D platformer that played on words to create unique mechanics. Find a spare O lying around, for example, and you could role it up to…

JammJam Is ‘Fight Club For Musicians’ And You Can See It In VR

The first rule of JammJam is that you can absolutely talk about JammJam, otherwise this new 360 video from inside the LA-based center would just be a blank video.
