I've gotten back into Rez Infinite for some reason. Back when I got it, I beat the 5 levels and played Area X but I never really delved further into it until now.

I can't believe I didn't know about the Overdrive. I was charging those up and never using them this whole time. I also didn't know until just now that you can play with a Move controller. This whole time I thought it was dualshock only. I've been so clueless with this game for some reason haha
what! both of those things are news to me..

Anyone with ultrawings can tell me if it gets better past training? The music sucks and it doesn’t feel like Pilotwings at all. Right now regret getting it over operation warcade. Can you do refunds on the PS store like steam? I did actually get nauseous dive bombing my ultralight into the ground 😂 that eagle in Paris game looks good too but ultrawings had the best reviews of the three.

I can't tell you about Ultrawings but I bought Operation Warcade after noticing a physical copy on Boxing Day and although the depth of it all only goes so far, its pretty fun, just something simple and fun to pickup and play whenever with the PS Aim controller.

Played some Firewall yesterday after a break, and met many new players with low levels. The game is continuing to sell to new PSVR owners and there was never a problem with empty lobbies, they immediately got full.

There is also a new free map out if someone missed it.
That word of mouth is spreading. I also bought it due to all the good talk on this site.

Just want to add, the new map comes in a game update. Just in case anybody goes crazy looking for it in the store, you won’t find it.

So I got a PSVR for Christmas. And so far I've tried 3 of the "must play" games...

First I tried AstroBot after all the hype and praise it's got recently as a defining game for VR. I was wowed by the 3D effect. Just turning my head 360 degrees and seeing behind me was amazing. But then the camera started moving and I got nauseous. After an hour I thought OK i'm just playing a mario clone. I only played 2-3 stages, but I feel like it could be played in 2D at this point.

Second I tried SuperHot - What an incredible experience! Independence of my arms(the weapons) with the move controllers, ducking behind objects, etc. This feels like what VR was made for! I beat it in three short play sessions. But it was so much fun.

Third I played RE7 - Another game you play with regular controller. I played for an hour and there was minimal action. Just one enemy? Mostly just walking around a stage with very little to do. OK I get that it's scary to feel you're in a ghost house, but would it be so much different on a large projection screen?

At this stage it feels like games played with the regular dualshock the VR effect is nice but something I might grow tired of. Games like SuperHot where you physically need to move your arms and duck under bullets make the VR aspect much more realistic and satisfying as a new gaming experience.

Anyone else feel the same? What other games would you recommend for me given my experience?

Having your hands inside VR completes the experience.

-Beat Saber: ('nuff said, get it nao)

-Blasters of the Universe: You have a customizable gun on one hand, a shield on the other. Enemies attack by bullet curtains that you have to dodge and weave (or shield) through.

-Knockout League: It plays almost exactly like Punch-Out!! but with you physically dodging, ducking, blocking and punching. It also has a gym that's a pretty good workout.

-PixelJunk Dead Hungry: Zombies are approaching your food truck and the only way to stay alive is by preparing them fast food and throwing it at them. This one is often overlooked but it's a lot of fun to play IMO and fun to watch others frantically fumbling to make the food as fast as they can.

-Mortal Blitz: It's basically Time Crisis in VR, but instead of letting your foot off the pedal to pop from cover you have to physically lean or crouch behind cover, and you have a sort of laser whip that stuns enemies in the air so you can finish them off with your guns, Bulletstorm-style. Lacks scenery variety though, I'd recommend get it on a sale.

That being said, seated dualshock games can still be cool, especially Astro Bot. It will get better and keep surprising you the more you progress, it has some really cool gadgets that use your tracked controller so it does have its ways to take advantage of VR.

PSVR Demo Collection 3 is out now on PS Store!

Bad news: Majority old games from the previous collections or standalone demos previously available :messenger_pouting:

Astro Bot, Superhot, Headmaster, RE7:The Kitchen, Job Simulator, Moss, The Persistence, Thumper, Battlezone.

I think the only new one is Superhot, all the others are old.

Buuu!!

After having it borrowed from a friend, I bit the apple on the January Sale for Skyrim VR... It is SO ugly... but goddamn, is it awesome to double wield the sparks-spell and grill a motherfucker like the emperor himself XD.



Also got Raw Data and tested one level with the Ninja Lady Character... that swordplay is immensly fun!
 
Just a quick post for me but I caved and picked up Ace Combat 7, I'm aware like Gran Turismo its not a full PSVR game but I couldn't stay away. I know it won't warrant the price tag for everyone for the 45 mins worth of VR missions but I've been playing and replaying for abit and this is an entirely new amazing experience for PSVR. Its the Star Wars X-Wing mission heightened, theres nothing like dog fighting and flying through the clouds using them camouflage, only to have your canopy glass covered in droplets of water from the condensation from the clouds . Its very fast paced, completely open in maneuverability and not for the faint of heart for those people who don't do well with heavy movement in VR.

I've gotten very comfortable with being in VR with heavy movement for as long as I want but when first playing it threw me abit, I was ok with it once I adjusted but this game is as heavy as it gets for movement in PSVR, if you can handle this you can handle anything and if you manage to hang in alright, you're treated to one of the most amazing VR experiences yet.

How is the flat screen content? Maybe worth a buy if the regular game is also good?

I've only played the demo and curiously I flew like a madman doing lots of rolling, turning, etc. and nothing fazed me... Except for the part where you're taxiing in the aircraft carrier, before taking off. That always feels weird, like it could give me nausea if it lasted a bit longer.
