Games Review: Accounting Plus (PSVR, 2018): Rick and Morty meets The Stanley Parable

Trying to market Account + VR would be like trying to drag a pizza delivery man away from dancing on the side of the road and showing him the power of social media advertising. It’s pointless, the only thing that can help advertise this wonderful, engaging, hilarious adult experience is to just yell at people to play it. OR, you can tell everyone you know that it is created by the very team that has brought us Rick and Morty (Justin Roiland) and the Stanley Parable (William Pugh), that sold me instantly! Who doesn’t want to put a pair of Virtual Reality goggles on and get lost in a cartoonish nightmare with those two yelling expletives at you for a few hours?

Games Review: The Inpatient (PSVR, 2018): Give me the bad news, doc

The Inpatient for PlayStation VR is a psychological horror game designed by Supermassive Games, who were the minds behind the awesome PS4 exclusive Until Dawn and is set 60 years before that aforementioned title. Those merits alone will sell the game to VR enthusiasts and horror buffs such as myself. After the VR games Resident Evil 7 and Supermassive’s own Rush of Blood, the bar was left high for Supermassive Games second VR title The Inpatient.

Video Games First Impressions: Resident Evil 7: Biohazard VR Demo (R18+) (PSVR, 2017)

Considering the last games I played were Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Resident Evil 5, getting to spend time with Resident Evil 7: Biohazard , which just so happens to be part of a franchise that I cherish, was a really nice way to get back on the horse. Doubly so because it utilises a feature altogether new to me: virtual reality. Continue reading Video Games First Impressions: Resident Evil 7: Biohazard VR Demo (R18+) (PSVR, 2017)

Video Game Review: Here They Lie (PSVR, 2016)

Here They Lie has you thrown into the first person perspective of a seemingly tall and lanky middle aged man. You aren’t given anything to go on other than a beautiful woman in a yellow dress to follow through a creepily quiet ghost town and for some reason. I can’t quite fathom why I felt the need to follow from the start, but I’m glad I did. Continue reading Video Game Review: Here They Lie (PSVR, 2016)

First Impressions: My weekend with PlayStation VR

PlayStation VR has officially landed and it’s off to an excellent start as a great piece of hardware that just goes above and beyond a peripheral. It makes the PlayStation 4 the very gaming system that will set it apart from the rest this holiday season (If you can get your hands on a VR headset that is). The launch line-up of games however, can be pretty hit or miss, thankfully most of them are a hit. Continue reading First Impressions: My weekend with PlayStation VR
