The final boss in Astrobot was fantastic and was such a perfectly fitting character to that masterpiece of a game.  I had a smile on my face the entire time I was facing him.

Astro bot is finally available preowned online from gamestop.com. with cag16 and elite pro, it's about $20 before tax and shipping. Trying to get free shipping, but it seems $5-6 is the lowest no matter how much i add to the cart. I may wait til pro day to see if a copy happens to show up nearby.

I was planning on getting it, but I'll probably wait for a sale (hopefully before Christmas). It sounds like it might be for me, I always enjoy walking around in a VR space. Sounds a little bit like Torn, which I'd also put in my top 5 best looking games.

It's even less interactive then Torn but much, much prettier and much more somber. You're in an orphanage and there's melancholy strings playing the whole time. It's clearly not going to end with everyone getting adopted.

 

The final boss in Astrobot was fantastic and was such a perfectly fitting character to that masterpiece of a game.  I had a smile on my face the entire time I was facing him.

Same here, it was pretty much perfect and I was surprised how they could top themselves after such non-stop high caliber level design. I'm going to try and find time to plat the game despite more incoming VR and bigger 2D releases waiting to get played.

The Target BF ad says "Save $100 on all Playstation VR bundles". Some folks are interpreting that as including the Doom and Astrobot bundles, not just the Creed/Superhot bundle. If so, that would bring the Moss bundle down to $200.

 

I hope this is true. Only thing that would make my BF better would be if Amazon PM'd the price on the Moss bundle.

Just platinum'd Astrobot.  Damn good game and now I really have no reason to play it again :(

 

The hardest challenge level for me by far was the one with the hookshot thing.  Like the level was easy to beat, but it's the only one that really gave me a challenge to do it in time, and you had to do some nice little trickery to get some short cuts.  And even when I did some, I beat it in 1:00:66 then 1:00:03 and you had to do it in under a minute lol.  Then on my last run I got it in just over 58 seconds so I definitely shed some time in places.  Other than that though, none really gave me too much trouble.  

 

But damn, what a really fun game.  I had 5 hidden trophies to get once I beat all the challenges but they were easy after looking at the description of the hidden information.

Only some people?  Why would anyone interpret it any other way?

The Meijer's Black Friday Ad has the Astro Bot/Moss Bundle for $199 (no move controllers), and also the splash sticker that says $100 off all PSVR bundles. So I have a feeling it's most likely going to be a thing at a lot of places.

I mean that is the most no brainer purchase in video game history IMO if you don't have one already.

I have an Oculus, Leveno Windows mixed reality (long story) and the PSVR. My PSVR is by far the most used of the three. I'll echo the chorus of praise that Astrobot is getting here. I'm crossing my fingers that the local Meijer's gets Tetris Effect on Friday during the B2G1 sale this week to come home with that, Deracine and Moss. Big ask though..

I think people should get in on the move bundles with Creed & Superhot instead. The move controllers are pretty essential and $50 for a pair of new ones ain’t bad. Superhot is an amazing and essential game. I’ve seen praise for Creed too. Then they could just get Moss & Astrobot separate

Did the doom and skyrim bundles hit $200? Or were they $250/$200 like these ones. They were the previous models right? I'm looking to pick up a PSVR bundle and Pro this month. The bundles seem to be $100 off everywhere which is nice but not seeing anything for the Pro yet.

The doom bundle has hit $200 in the past but msrp on it is still $300. Skyrim bundle is still $350 msrp as well so the new bundles are really the ones to get since they will be the same price. Astrobot + Moss > Doom and Creed + Superhot > Skyrim

Edit: both the Doom & Skyrim bundles are V2 headsets

Skyrim Bundle with the 2 moves controllers and camera, and obviously the game hit $250 during E3 cause that's when I grabbed it. I've used the move controllers twice, so I'd call it far from essential. They kind of seem bad. 

 

edit: they are better for shooting gallery games like the Until Dawn rollercoaster one, but don't expect great tracking out of them. Hopefully they'll be good enough for Beat Saber.

I think it just depends what games people want.  I have the move controllers and I haven't used them as much as I thought I would.  The games that really stand out on PSVR IMO are games that don't utilize them, such as RE7, Astrobot, Moss, and others.  There are also some games that I definitely enjoy with them, but not games that I'd consider "must have".  I own Superhot (got physical copy from Europe) and I don't think it's as good as everyone makes it out to be.

Target clearanced out both bundles this past summer, some stores got to around 90 or 105 for them.

Just a couple of quick VR takes before I go dark for a bit.

 

I finally played Job Simulator after all this time. It's fun while it lasts, but it gets old really fast. Basically the game prompts you the entire time and you carry out tasks any way you see fit. I got the platinum in less than 3 hours without even really trying. Then I played the Infinite Overtime mode for about an hour or so until it started repeating itself. I feel like this is a game I would have liked more in 2016, but after playing so many comedic VR experiences (like Accounting+, Virtual Rick-ality and The American Dream), it felt kind of bare bones.

 

Speaking of bare bones: Island Time VR. It feels like one level from a much better game. It's essentially plotless, you're just trying to "survive" as long as you can without starving or setting yourself on fire. By far the hardest achievement for the plat was lasting 20 minutes without dying (which is tricky because you have extremely limited resources). And that's pretty much the extent of content you get in the full game: 20 minutes. After awhile the dialogue loops and it feels extremely repetitive. This would be good to pick up for a couple of bucks; it kind of reminded me of that Gary the Gull free app.

 

Last but not least, I just platted Just in Time Incorporated. It's kind of like a mix between Minority Report and The Matrix; each mission lasts a minute or so and runs entirely in slow motion while you have to dispatch enemies or solve quick puzzles before time runs out. It's actually really fun while it lasts, even though the graphics are purposely simple and blocky (probably to lessen how violent the game is). The tracking can be a little spotty at times, and it's difficult to throw things, but I'd recommend it for about $5 or so.

 

All three games were fun, but everything feels kind of meh after ABRM.

I’m not saying there aren’t great experiences to have without the move controllers. But I would still consider them to be essential because they are required to play a pretty substantial number of games. Beat Saber included

I'm not disagreeing with you, but there are a lot of people I've talked to that are hesitant to spend a lot on PSVR and at just under $200, that is a pretty significant threshold that is broken.  I also know multiple people who have move controllers (and the camera) and are curious about PSVR, so something like that could push them over the edge too.

I look at the move controllers as an extra hassle that "might" have a return on the investment. Games like Superhot obviously use them in really great ways but Skyrim for example was perfectly fine with the DS4. Tracking is also an issue for me even in the best cases because I have a low tolerance for inaccuracy I don't think I've ever had a session that was an hour long or more where the move controllers didn't have an issue. Still buying Beat Saber day one though.
