any recommendations for games?
Wipeout is very good, once you can get used to the motion sickness, it gives the game more depth. Battlezone is good too. I stuck video clips of my attempts at these on a couple of posts earlier this year.
I am a big fan Star Trek Bridge Crew, really good laugh as you usually have to Play with four people.
Firewall Zero Hero is canny, especially if you have the move controller gun.
There are a few other games I have heard are good haven’t got round to getting them, Residential Evil Biohazard, Batman Arkham, Astrobot Rescue Mission.
There are also some good free games on the Playstation Store ie Call Of Duty Jackal Assault.
Cheers I’ll have a look at those. I’m pretty impressed with it so far.
If it comes with VR Worlds, play The London Heist. I freaking loved that! For a free game, Rec Room is a good laugh too.
Moss and Rush of Blood for paid games and also Batman Arkham VR (wouldn't pay more than a tenner for that one though). If you have the regular PS4 (not the pro version), I'd avoid Skyrim, graphics aren't great for motion sickness.
The London Heist is great. It’s a bit distracting at first sitting in the chair wondering what’s going to happen. Not sure what I liked best the gun fight in the bank or the road chase.
Made the mistake of shooting at the wrong person and missing at the end
I cannot get away with Skyrim on the Pro.... made me feel a bit sick! No problem with other VR titles.
Moss is brilliant, easily the best game I've played so far, Rush of Blood is canny as well although you need the motion controllers as well for that one
I need to get some move controllers. Could kick myself, I gave them away when I traded my ps3 for my ps4 a few years ago.
Without moves - Astro bot, wipeout, resident evil, headmaster, moss
With moves - superhot, Skyrim, beat saber
With aim controller - farpoint
Superhot is an absolutely outstanding experience. The moves are ridiculously priced now people have cottoned on that you can still use the old ps3 ones but you might be able to find a deal.
I loved Skyrim but it’s hit and miss with people. If you aren’t a fan of RPGs then skip it.
The aim controller with farpoint is brilliant as well but given you can’t get that bundle anymore it becomes really expensive and there’s only a few other games that use it (firewall, doom)
Just played Rush of Blood. Great little game. Made me jump a couple of times. Didn't realise it scored your accuracy, I was just blasting away at the tour guide bloke
Guessing this was just another shit gimmick like every other reiteration of VR then.
I’ve just set mine up again and I’m bang into it tbh. Loads of short, fun games for £3-£8 on the ps store, loads of vr videos on YouTube, and I’ve started watching 3D Blu-rays on it, which is amazing.
It’s not a life-changer, granted, but it’s far from a shit gimmick, and I’d say we’re only a few iterations away from proper vr stuff....just need to iron out some issues and streamline the headset and input methods....too many wires atm.
Is the resolution not really shitty on these? I tried watching some films on it and turned it off because the resolution was so poor. Also sitting there for that long with the headset on is a pain too. Its decent but there's a long way to go with it before I'd buy again. Just happy I was able to sell mine before the big price drop.
The resolution needs to be upped to 4k on both eyes I reckon. Once they can do that it'll be superb and some games are good now. Moss looks brilliant on it
That's my view, we just aren't there yet but once we do it will be brilliant.
The screen door effect ruins movies for me I think- doesnt help games sometimes either.
The main issue with PSVR for me though is the effort needed to set it up. A busy family house with one TV set up is not ideal as it means I have to unbox, set everything up with the wires etc- once ive done that I have little appetite to play much.
This, its just too much of a fuck on to get it all setup, really needs to be wireless
Exactly. Wouldnt be so bad if I had a dedicated room but having to set up every time is a joke.
My eyesight must be shite as I’ve only ever noticed the screen door effect on loading screens that go that sort of dusty grey colour, as soon as graphics are there I can’t see any meshing effect.
I’m lucky in that my back room is basically set up for my own enjoyment - all my guitars, amps, various consoles, massive telly and comfy old sofa.
I’ve been using my while the family watch the tv . Stops the tv being hogged by me or me not being able to play if the daughter is watching tv.
