Dispatch for the Oculus Rift could be one of the best VR experiences we've ever seen!

I've seen quite a few impressive VR experiences recently, but Dispatch by Here Be Dragons could be the best of the bunch. Dispatch is a brand new experience that's currently exclusive to the Oculus Rift. It's 4 chapters of episodic storytelling, but only the first chapter comes free. Admission to the final three chapters will set you back an additional $2.99. At first blush, you might be thinking... "They want $3 for some non-interactive VR storytelling? the heck with that.." Well, here's the thing, once you try out the first chapter, you might find it very difficult to resist the last three. In this experience, you get an inside look at a disgruntled 911 dispatcher that hates his job. It's

The Exorcist: Legion VR's first chapter, "First Rites", is well worth that $4 spot

Wolf & Wood Interactive, along with Legion VR are testing the waters with bite sized VR content for a bite sized price. You can grab the first chapter of The Exorcist: Legion VR, First Rites for a mere 4 bones. These days, it's hard to get a decent chicken sandwich at a mediocre fast food restaurant for only 4 bucks. Of course, the side effect of the low, low price, is the fact that the content is brief. Wolf & Wood Interactive advertises the playtime as somewhere in the 20 to 25 minute range. My play-through of the experience was just short of a half hour. However, I learned early on in this experience, that it's designed to be savored, and rushing through wouldn't be the logical way to go

Newest Gunheart update gives the game a more polished feel

Gunheart, by Drifter Entertainment, is a game that certainly has it's share of fans. There is a die-hard group of players that believe Gunheart has delivered that Borderlands or Destiny feel, only now it's in VR. However, I'm not so sure that Gunheart has broken out into widespread appeal from most PC VR players. I'm guessing a lot of it has to do with the single-player portion of the game. Any VR gamer that isn't interested in multiplayer, is probably somewhat hesitant to grab a game like Gunheart. They hear how great the game is from a multiplayer standpoint, but don't feel like the $35 value proposition makes sense for them. With the recent update from Drifter Entertainment, this opinion

First two episodes of The Exorcist: Legion VR set to arrive on November 22nd

The dawn of episodic VR gaming is almost upon us. Wolf & Wood Interactive, in combination with Legion VR, are going to bring out the first two episodes, of an episodic tale in The Exorcist universe on November 22nd. The Exorcist: Legion VR, is of course the follow up project to the much celebrated A Chair in a Room. Wolf & Wood Interactive's first VR game is currently ranked the No.1 horror game on our Top 20 Horror Games All-Platforms rankings. This time around, the game is being broken up into bite sized chunks. The first two chapters available at launch include First Rites and Idle Hands. First Rites will be available for $4, with Idle Hands available for $5. Chapters 3 through 5 will rel

Killing Floor: Incursion now available on Steam!

Killing Floor: Incursion, one of my favorite VR horror games of 2017 has now made it's way to Steam. HTC Vive players can pick the game up for $39.99 as of today. Oculus Rift owners have been enjoying this game for quite some time now. It's certainly one of the more visceral horror games I've ever had the pleasure of experiencing. I'm acutely aware of how played-out the word "visceral" is, when it comes to video games, but Killing Floor: Incursion is the very definition of the infamous V word. I constantly found my "Fight or Flight" response being triggered each time a menacing wave of Zed's approached me with the worst of intentions. The Steam version of the game includes a bonus that the o

Say it ain't So.... The Inpatient and Bravo Team both delayed till 2018

PlayStation VR owners woke up Friday morning to some very unfortunate news. PlayStation Europe tweeted out that Supermassive's two huge PSVR releases would both see delays into early 2018: "The release dates for #PlayStationVR titles The Inpatient and Bravo Team have moved. The inpatient will now launch on 24th Jan and Bravo Team will launch on 7th March. The delay is to give the development teams extra time to make the games as enjoyable for players as possible." It's certainly unfortunate that these two games have been delayed, but it's not as incredibly shocking as it may first appear. The Inpatient was originally scheduled for a November 22nd release, which comes just five days after the

New PlayStation VR Demo Disk 2 packs a helluva punch!

The new PlayStation VR Demo Disk version 2 is available for download on PSN, in all the major regions. PSVR fans, you'll immediately want to download this, and get to enjoying the buffet of treats that Sony has provided for the Fall season. Three prime-time, unreleased PlayStation VR games have new demos to test out. First up is Moss by Polyarc. It was recently announced at Paris Games Week that Moss wasn't going to make a 2017 release window. The game is currently scheduled for a February 27th launch. After playing this wonderful demo, the wait is going to be that much more excruciating. The demo is a delightful example of why 3rd person VR gaming can, and should, continue to be a major for

Heart of the Emberstone - Equal parts frustrating and brilliant

The Gallery: Episode 2 - Heart of the Emberstone released way back on October 18th, and yet, here we are in early November, and we still don't have a review for the game. What the heck is going on? Well, I can tell you that we try our best to get a really good feel for a game, before putting out a mini-review with a rating score. Getting a good feel for Heart of the Emberstone has proven to be a difficult task. Normally, we'll get a game, spend a few days with it, and we'll know all we need to know about a game, to bang out a decent mini-review. With the Gallery 2, this hasn't been the case. Some days I feel like Emberstone is maybe the most impressive VR game I've ever encountered, and the
