Golem use supersampling in PS4 Pro, that could be first and only game that use it in PSVR at the moment.
I expect to see a lot more supersapling in PSVR when PS5 is released.
I hope we get a lot of PS5 patches to the current PS4 PSVR games to make them native 4k as it would make the games look so much better in the current headset.

Please don't play RE7 in VR until you play at least 5-10 hours of other VR games. I don't want you to get sick.
Yes - I am planning to do just that. Will be saving Skyrim and RE7 for later, and do a bit of other VR games that are more static.
Also before tackling it - I still need to finish the RE6 and Revelations 2... even though the order doesn't really matter for RE games, I'd like to keep my experience in chronological order. :)

Playing RE7 without VR for the first time is tragic.
Indeed. I played it for the first time (flat version) on PC because I didn't even think about buying a VR headset at that time. My PSVR playthrough a year later was cool, but since I knew the game inside-out by that time nothing was scary anymore. OTOH I would probably just have chickened out and not played it at all if my first playthrough was in VR. :p

Well I didn't even get to enter the house yet... I did see a glimps of a guy passing by in the woods, and that's pretty much where I turned it off for the night... so hopefully I didn't ruin it too much!

To be honest the scariest part so far is the missing wife's video in the beginning of the game that she'd be coming home etc etc. She looked rather scary. LOL.

I know that no one cares about Fantastic Contraption, but I like it a lot. Probably too much. You basically just build a contraption that solves some simple problem, and the problems get more complex as the levels get higher.

You can also cheat by making ridiculous contraptions that break the intent of the level. Like in this level, you have to take this big, heavy square to the goal area but you have these falling surfaces to traverse. I said fuck that and built a giant catapult with 3 powered wheels to help lift and throw the piece far enough.



Using the 2 Move controllers to build and stretch everything from scratch is so satisfying.

Ace Combat 7 is $15 at target today. The psvr mode while short, is really good. I've played them probably 20 times and barely touched the regular game.

I'm getting my son a psvr bundle for Christmas that comes with blood and truth and some golf fudgery. What are 3 games that you think a 9 hear old would love? His favorite games are Ark: survival evolved and Minecraft. He's not allowed to play anything rated M.

Not enough praise for Firewall Zero Hour with the gun peripheral. The most re-playable game in VR, right up there with the best available in 2d.

I have a love/hate relationship with Firewall. I played like 60 hours of it when it came out. At least 30 of those hours were staring at the lobby and loading screens.

If they just could have figured out host migration or could have been a big enough team to afford their own dedicated servers, almost every problem with the game would disappear (a single short round after minutes of waiting, the host leaving kills the entire match, ect).

Well, I finally beat all 50 base levels of Fantastic Contraption plus the extra ones they added in an update. What a chunky ass game! If you're into it, there's no shortage of levels. The last level was such an absolute bitch. I probably spent 5 hours on it over the course of a week.

Anyone have Everybody's Golf VR? Tonight I got around to trying out the demo. I'm kind of impressed. The handling of the clubs and the way the putting felt was all pretty damn nice. I played a ton of the PS3 and Vita versions of the game, so I have to imagine it gets even better in the VR version when you can actually play a hole.

I played the demo and was impressed too, but I'm not really a golf fan.

I bit the bullet and bought Everybody's Golf. I can see now why they set the demo up they way they did with not letting you try a course. The demo shows you the great controls and visuals and sets you up to expect this awesome and complete Hot Shots Golf package in the full release.

The full release feels extremely barebones, unfortunately. There are 3 courses. There don't even seem to be tournaments like the other games. You're not playing against anyone. You are just out there on the course trying to better you personal scores over and over again and that's the entire game.

Every time you load into the course, the caddy tries go to into this 3+ minute spiel about the weather and stuff and you know you're just supposed to be staring at her tits or something but if you're older than 15 and know that tits don't feel like bags of sand, it's just going to annoy you that you have to skip this dumb introduction every single time.

If you mess up a single putt, you might as well just quit and restart the match. Lots of loading and menu manipulation follows, along with having to skip the caddy's fucking cutscene again...all because of one failed putt.

I've been sitting on the fence with this game for so long, I'm glad to finally hear from someone who got the game. I was afraid it would be something like that.

Inexcusable. Sounds like a mode that should have been attached to the 2d game.

People may not know that Racket Fury (fucking awesome table tennis VR game) got a multiplayer update along with some other content like new arenas.

I got matched up against a guy from Germany just now and we played a couple awesome and intense games. There was some lag since we're on different sides of the globe, but damn I wish this game had a huge following online.

Heh, funny, I (a German) tried the Multiplayer a while ago and had a real funny (if not outright lagless) match with a nice guy from Mexico. The mode works aside from the bad connection.

I do not get motion sickness or have any problems with heights or elevators or anything in real life, but when you go down that very tall elevator into the bat cave in the Batman VR game, that was fucking me up pretty bad. When I realized I was doing the Slav squat so as not to fall over, I had to take the headset off :messenger_tears_of_joy:

I've been meaning to post here for some time.

I love the Batman VR game. The atmosphere is amazing. I actually sat down at the title screen and just took in the view. I mean to virtually be in Gotham? Just amazing.

Anyone play to the end? I still think about that final sequence. It really shows what VR can do.

Also did you view all the vehicles and view the character? Or view them in you hand? Great stuff. I want more.

I really want to play Robinson but it's like the most expensive VR game ever I think.

But just got Apex Construct for $8 and it's really good!
I'm gonna be the dissenting opinion on the game. I think it's bad. Even at the launch, when hype and amazement was at its highest, I couldn't stand this game.

The graphics were nice at the time and probably still are, but I didn't find that there was actually a game there. It was more like a walking simulator with tedious roadblocks they called gameplay in the way to block you before you can start walking again. I got a copy of Apex for about the same price recently too. I'm just waiting for it to arrive on Thursday.

That's how I felt about Robinson too. I personally found it very boring.
