A neat extra to getting PSVR is with the Playstation Camera I now have a microphone always hooked up to the PS4. Yesterday I looked something up on the Youtube app, and instead of using the digital keyboard I was able to just say what I was looking for. It's too bad Sony hasn't added voice search to the PS4 PSN store.

Finished Farpoint earlier today.  The game was great and I enjoyed every minute of it.  I really wish it was a bit longer though, it felt pretty damn short.  I also kind of wish you had the option to have more than 2 weapons or at least get back to some of the old ones you had at one point.  I saw a ton of rockets and grenades around but I no longer had those guns since I was picking up all the new guns to try out.  Some of them were good and some weren't that great.  I feel like the first 2 weapons are the best all around weapons.

 

At the very end to, is there anything special at the end of the credits rolling?  I held X to skip it and then it just took you back to the menu.  

 

I hope more games can take advantage of the Aim controller and incorporate it as well as Farpoint did.  I still haven't opened Doom and may try that next, but I was hoping for a left handed patch, regardless of playing with the Move or Aim controller.

Hey guys, I'm trying to move a PSN code for Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin. I'll sell it to anyone here for like 12 bucks. I'll even throw in my extra 20% off coupon (while supplies last) as incentive.

Not sure if this is old or not, but a demo for The Persistence is up in the U.S. store:

It was on Demo Disc 2.0, but I guess this is a standalone demo for the full release on Feb. 20. I wonder if there are any significant differences; I remember having motion sickness issues with the game.

I haven't tried the demo yet but am eagerly anticipating Persistence, as I do with just about any horror game. PSVR is a good platform for horror stuff and RE7 has really blown me away. Arizona Sunshine and Rush of Blood were great as well, I haven't heard many good things about the Inpatient but getting all this horror stuff is really awesome.

So that one store near me still says it has Job Simulator new for PS4 so I tried randomly again today for in store pickup.  Within like 10 minutes it said it was ready for pickup so I called to verify it was ready, and the guy said they don't have it in stock and he was clicking the "not found" thing on their system but it kept popping up for him to look for it.  So he verified that they do not have it in store.  He had no clue it's a rare game or anything either because he said he could check other stores for me.

 

And now on their website it doesn't show it as available so I guess he fixed whatever problem they had.

Drunkn Bar Fight seems like it should be the greatest game of all time. However, the screen shots on the store page look terrible, though apparently you can hit people with a baseball bat which is a plus. Anyone tried this?

I don't know about the PSVR version, but Giant Bomb has played the Vive version a few times:

My local GameStops never show anything, new or used. Still haven't heard shit from DeepDiscount about my backorder. And as far as Robinson goes, Shitseek still claims my Walmart has 5 copies. And of course eBay has copies of both for $50-100+. Tired of this bullshit.

 

Wow that game looks terrible.

Is that the extent of the gameplay? It looks like it'd be fun for a whole five minutes.

I picked up Sprint Vector and it’s pretty awesome. It has a Nintendo VR feel to it. The bright colors are gorgeous and the tracking is spot on. All the reviews have been really good too. I highly recomend checking them out if you haven’t already. This may end up being one of the best PSVR games to date.

Haven't picked up any of the new games, but I did start playing Paranormal Activity last night.  Let me just say it's f'n awesome.

I imagine it probably feels a little better from a first-person VR perspective, but yeah, 3rd person looked horrid. I understand the rag doll physics to some degree because of the motion controls, but it really made it look alot worse.

As they said in the Giant Bomb video: "sometimes bad VR is better than good VR". That's the vibe I got here; so bad it's good. Looks really stupid and the type of game you'd play with friends (as demonstrated in the video).

Apparently it’s missing some (arguably) important features that were offered in the other versions.

The biggest complaint I’ve seen is there is no way to turn your body, you can only move forward and backward. You also can’t get ‘drunk’. In the other versions the more you drink the blurrier your vision gets, and you also get bigger and stronger. The PSVR version didn’t include these features. It also seems to be very buggy from the gameplay videos I’ve watched.

It still looks like fun to me, but I’m waiting for a cheap sale and/or an update or patch.

I bought all three ( DBF, KO League, and Sprint Vector), but haven't had a chance to play any yet.

DBF looks fun just because the ragdoll physics are so over the top. Should be good to blow off some steam and even better when you play while actually drinking in RL.

Looking forward to KO League the most, because of how much it resembles Punch-Out.
Success ONLY comes before work in the Dictionary.

The Lost Bear: Short platformer with VR elements. You're basically controlling everything from a stage while your surrounding environment changes with the levels. It took me a little over an hour to complete, although I blame that mostly on the poor game mechanics, with specifics to jumping. My next challenge is to beat it in a single playthrough without dying (which should take no longer than half an hour), and it SEEMS simple enough, but I keep making stupid mistakes.
 
It's a fun enough game while it lasts, but my main criticism is that they didn't do enough with the VR. At some points it comes into play, but not nearly enough to justify its $12.99 price point; I bought it for 20% off because it didn't seem like a game that would ever get a sale but this is a $4.99 title, tops. It's a neat idea, but ultimately flawed execution.
 
GNOG: A quirky little toy box puzzler from Double-Fine. Much like Statik, it's a game where you learn what to do through blind experimentation. The difference being that I was eventually able to figure out all the puzzles here, whereas I couldn't even get through the demo of Statik before I got fed up and looked up the solution. Some people might find it too easy, but I found it the right difficulty; the only problem is that there's a very limited amount of puzzles and once you're done, there's not much else to do.
 
The highlights are definitely the psychedelic colors and trippy music surrounding you in VR, but the length and ease (it took me 1-2 hours) may turn off serious gamers. Be sure to check out the demo on VR Demo Disc 1 to see if it's your cup of tea.

Here's another article on AZ Sunshine and Superhot physical releases. I will definitely import these if the US doesn't get them.

Tanuki, could you link your VR game review doc?

Just read that Sony is putting the VR on sale again, with the stand alone headset at 199, Doom bundle at 299, and Skyrim bundle at 349 starting on the 18th until march.

Wonder if it's worth it to trade in my V1 version for a V2 w HDMI passthrough? Gamestop is giving 100 for them right now, and I have enough credit to swing the difference. How much would an HDMI splitter solution run me? I have no 4K TV right now, this would just be future proofing.

Switches are around 30 bucks and tend to work pretty well but are a bit finicky. There are a couple of other niceties in V2 including inline earbuds, thinner cables, etc. but they seem pretty minor.

If it won’t help you in any way now I say just wait for a v3.

Do you know when that sale is supposed to start? GameStop is offering 25% bonus towards consoles so only $75 oop to upgrade to the newer version would be very tempting even though I don’t have a 4k tv yet either.

That's the official posting. However, I'm not sure if Gamestop classifies the PSVR as a console or an accessory.

Edit: Gamestop listing says Category: Accessories so you might not get that extra 25%

That is very smart advice.  I wish I would follow it, but my house full of junk I bought because it was a good deal proves I can't.

 

If sony decided to do this deal again already, we can bet they will do it again and again until it is the new msrp and different bundles are out.  So I would agree no reason to rush on an upgrade if you don't have a need soon.

Hmmm it’s listed under Consoles on the app...
