Electronauts has a lot going for it thanks to the immersion, the Music Reality Engine that keeps everything in tune no matter how hard you may try to mess up, the amazing sounds, and the number of artists who allowed part of their heart and soul to be your creative playground. Some people are able to show their artistic sides in various ways that people will admire, but sometimes we just need that freedom of the virtual platform to be able to bring out our creative sides that we may not know we had.
See its this level of thinking, the unlockables, the upgrades, endings, and survival mode that allow The Persistence to be on your list to play. It’s the type of game that doesn't need to have someone hold your hand, it’s the type of game you need to experience for yourself. It allows you to test yourself and shows that even when we fall down that we should get back up and try again, even if those right next to have the power to help or hinder your gameplay.
Detached is not your normal gaming experience. There are no weapons, no enemies trying to attack you. It is just you the cold, dark place of space. Anshar Studios does something here that you may not normally see. Sure there are risks every single day, but to take the risk of bringing what very may well be the exact experience of being weightlessness in space and bringing the danger of being out there alone, with limited supplies, and facing what could be the end as we know it. And even with the warning at the beginning that Ansar Studios has placed, I respect the chance they took and appreciate for allowing me to have my wonders finally answered and for allowing me the ability to just be able to spin in space.
There is something about not taking yourself too seriously and allowing others to escape and have fun with your creation that makes it all worth it and goes to show that sometimes it’s the gems that may have been overlooked are the ones that can actually surprise us by the fun that we can have.
Animal Force doesn’t limit you to traditional rules but gives you the freedom to allow you to play in your style of defense…to play your way. There is something special about animals joining together to help and protect and all I can say is I am pro Animal Team Force all the way. Sometimes we play games in hopes that a new standard of a genre will be set so others can try to meet and exceed that standard so that everyone can enjoy and it that may have happened here.
Moss really has something for everyone. Adventure, combat, puzzles, friendship, and even the world itself. The narration is spot on and just pulls you in and not wanting to look back, but yet somehow makes you remember the beauty of what you and Quill already have. When a game is played in VR it allows us to escape, but when that game allows us to escape within the escape, that is something special. It just goes to show that sometimes the biggest heroes come in the smallest packages.
Apex Construct like I said was built from the ground up for VR and it shows. You can tell the team cares for and has this passion for Virtual Reality. I have always said that VR allows us to escape from our reality. When you can escape to a world and makes you start questioning what is going on and is it really up to me and start to question humanities actions, then something is right. Apex Construct gives us just that, an escape to a world, even if it may be a world like ours that is ripped apart and what could possibly happen and shows us why we should appreciate VR.
Now as you can tell, I am not going to spoil anything for anyone. If you love Until Dawn and Until Dawn: Rush of Blood and you really enjoy the Until Dawn universe, then do yourself a favor and go play this now as it could only really be brought to life in Virtual Reality. If you are new to the Until Dawn universe, you just might find your inner persona that has been locked up and looking to be freed by playing The Inpatient.
With 30 levels of increasing pressure and difficulty as you progress, you are not going to get that change of scenery and that’s ok because you are serving food to the dead. I did find Dead Hungry quite immersive being in that confined place of the kitchen inside a food truck. To look around and see a zombie at the window or looking at the background and seeing another zombie prepare under a tent just adds something special.
Fishing Master does what it strives to do. Adding a fishing experience in VR in your own home when you want to be able to do it with an arcade tone to it. The visuals are good and is not striving to have photo-realistic scenes to it and it doesn’t need to and doesn’t have to show how fun it can be. Sound wise, it’s what I expect. Hearing the water to hearing the fish jump out of the water, it’s here. The music can seem repetitive to some but does get more intense when you start having to struggle to try and catch the fish. And trying to fish at night while fireworks are going off or fishing by the Northern Lights is something that really needs to be experienced.
What you may not know is that Megaton Rainfall was created by just one person, Alfonso del Cerro, over a five year span. This part is very true including the engine. So just take that in for a minute. One dream…one person and the result is one of the best super hero games to ever grace our presence.
Raw Data that much more better. But you do get a lot here; Immersive VR…check. A story with heroes…check. Being able to move in 360 degrees with enemies coming at you…check and leaderboards…check. It’s all here and for that, you are truly getting an Intense VR Sci-Fi Combat game to add to your library that will be experienced for a long time.
Sometimes games and experiences seem to go for the rush factor and then it's over with no real follow up and no real story to tell. So there should be more adventures that will allow everyone who loves Voltron and anyone who loves the opportunity to be taken away to another world and just for that time you are there, you are seeing through the eyes of the story. What Voltron VR Chronicles is what it wanted to be...what it's fans needed it to be.
With October and Halloween being here before we know it and when you add everything including the humor, level design, controls and combos, Bloody Zombies is what I was hoping for…a throw back to side scrolling brawlers that you can play with friends or online all while adding zombies and blood and in VR. This is one game that will help you get into the spirit of the Halloween season along with just a fun game all around to play. Loved it.
Sometimes in life the choices we make will have that butterfly effect and we are not even aware. But like The CROW, sometimes the soul cannot rest and some times, the soul can be brought back to put the wrong things right. With Manifest 99, do yourself a favor, pick this up and feel free to take your time and enjoy the journey.
