Abzu: Just 100%'d this one. Was underwhelmed on my first playthrough, but enjoyed it more on the second pass. More of an experience than a game, really. Glad I only spent $8 on it.

The Talos Principle (PS4)

Picked this up on sale a while ago for $7.50, and it was a real steal at that price. It's another thoughtful puzzler in the vein of The Witness, but instead of line puzzles, this game opts for...

It's going to depend on your games and your environment. I tried sitting on my couch in the 7-9' range and while it mostly worked, I kept running into drift and shaky tracking issues, and if I...

Just finished the game tonight. Enjoyable all the way through, and I think this is clearly the killer app for PSVR (no pun intended). The sense of presence really took this to the next level.

For my money, Resident Evil VII, Tumble VR, and Until Dawn: Rush Of Blood have been the best experiences so far.

Optimal is right at or just under 6 feet away from the camera, with the left-side camera lens pointed straight at your face.

For motion I turned off the blinders, left pie turning at 30', bumped...

Played for about an hour this morning and got a bit past the area from the demo. Great atmosphere, loving this in VR. I don't mind if the visuals take a hit -- the sense of presence more than makes...

I've played a lot of the demo and liked it. I was waiting for the reviews of the full game, and they're good, so I had this on my watch list for a price drop -- but then I saw the $12 discount for...

Games that have acceleration are the ones most likely to give you trouble. For me, "Scavenger's Odyssey" on the PS VR Worlds disc has been the most nauseating due to all the turning and jumping. On...

Oh yeah, I also played through Walking Dead: Michonne for $5. Not bad, but not particularly memorable either. More of the same, without as much emotional resonance as the main seasons of the game. ...

Original PS4, though that shouldn't matter. In Batman the hands and held objects jitter around a bit, while other games haven't had the same issue on my setup.

Sure enough, there was an update to this game recently and a third planet was added as $3 paid DLC. Probably not going to try that out until it eventually goes on sale.
