Rick & Morty co-creator (and co-voicer) Justin Roiland has teamed up with former Epic Games producer Tanya Watson to create Squanchtendo, a virtual reality studio focused on something something. Comics are fun! Look at those comics!
Rarely do I find a virtual reality game worth the hype, but Playthings, released yesterday, literally takes the cake. I mean literally—there is a lot of cake.
Intel just announced its own virtual reality headset called Project Alloy, a VR competitor to the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and the forthcoming PlayStation VR headsets. But what separates the Alloy from the pack is that it’s completely wireless (the wire above is for capturing video for the demo) and it should give you…
At the recent ChinaJoy gaming show in, well, China, a number of companies set up big VR displays.
This is the kind of thing I’d like to see more of.
VR painting in 3D—like this image of WoW’s Illidan Stormrage—is black magic, and no amount of demos or explanations will convince me otherwise.
It’s funny how much more important defending your base is when you’re standing in the middle of it. Cosmic Trip for the HTC Vive uses virtual reality to deliver a intimate perspective on real-time strategy.
Hey, remember that cool zombie VR warehouse we told you about that Sega Japan was going to open? Where players could walk around with guns strapped to their backs and blast zombies? It’s open. And it’s...well, see for yourself.
I’m not quite a VR convert. I get sick easily. Yet, if one game has made an extremely compelling case that VR can work brilliantly, it’s Dead Hungry.
Dirt Rally is getting Oculus Rift support next Monday, July 11. From what I’ve played of the non-VR game, it will be a lot to deal with. I’m going to play it anyway.
While there are no plans for an official PlayStation VR version of Final Fantasy XIV, there are actually some pretty cool unofficial ones you can try.
Probably my favorite virtual reality experience was unearthed around 1863 in the Roman suburb of Prima Porta. Well, it’s not a virtual reality experience as much as it’s an illusionistic fresco on four walls, but bear with me. In the villa of Livia Drusilla (58 BCE-29 CE), the wife of the first emperor of Rome, there…
The release of v5.0 of the Dolphin emulator has one very cool trick: it now has proper support for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
Thumper, an intense music game that lovingly describes itself as rhythm violence, is coming to PlayStation 4 and PC on October 13. It’s part of the PS VR lineup, but it’s not confirmed if the PC version will also support VR. “We hope to have good news soon,” the developer told me over email.
Oculus has been under enormous pressure in recent weeks over an unexpected decision to prevent competing headsets from playing Oculus games, but the company appears to have reversed course.
After seeing Japanese horror movie Sadako vs. Kayako, Twitter user Tatsunoru decided to make a Sadako VR prototype, starring, well, Sadako from the horror classic The Ring (above).
Oculus didn’t just launch their Rift VR headset back in March—they also launched a software interface and an online store. The software functions similarly to Steam or GOG, working as a store, a social network, a game library and launching pad. It desperately needs an upgrade.
Seems like good a place as any to strap a GamePad, no?
Valve? More like VRlve. Hm, that doesn’t really work.
