Newegg has some PSVR bundles for 20% off MSRP today only using coupon code "emctuut36". $240+tax for Astrobot/Moss bundle and $280 for Borderlands/Beat Saber. Not as good as the holiday deal, but still better than MSRP.

It seems like one of those games that'll be free on PS plus. I'll wait.

The recommendations above are all good, if you are looking at some cheaper games Eagle Flight, Carnival Game and Solus Project are all worth the $5-6 they are currently.

I'm just gonna post a few a lot of thoughts on the games in the sale I've played:

 

Cold Iron is an interesting little game. It starts as a quick Old West quickdraw duel game, and through the short campaign is essentially a series of fast-reaction puzzles building on that theme in completely different environments. The duels are first-to-5 wins, so it can feel a bit repetitive early and be frustrating later. There are three levels with three duels in each, and you have to beat the whole level in one go. These are followed by a stupidly hard 'standard' duel and then a final boss that remixes a lot of what you've seen already. There are also a handful of shooting gallery challenges. It controls well and feels good to play.

 

If you're into that old-school arcade style of replaying for mastery, it's fairly meaty; as a one-and-done experience the story game it's short but sweet, if you like Old West trappings.

 

End Space I haven't played a ton of, but to my understanding it's the only full single-player space pilot dogfighty-game available for PSVR. I've played enough to say it's competent but not much else.

 

Gunjack is arcadey fun. You're basically manning a turret on a starship (kind of like those scenes in the original Star Wars trilogy where Han and Luke shoot TIEs from the Millennium Falcon). You're essentially gunning down waves of enemies in various formations. Classic sort of gameplay and it's dirt cheap.

 

Raw Data is one of my favorite games on the platform. It's a character-based wave shooter with some light tower defense elements. There's a good deal of variety between enemy types and how each character deals with them, 9 levels and various difficulties, a lot of replayability, and a decent narrative. Some of the controls are a little dodgy (I have never been able to pull off Saija's charge attack) and I did crash at the end of one level that was apparently once notorious for it, but I've certainly gotten my money's worth.

 

Resident Evil 7 is a must play. The atmosphere is great, it matches the tension of the original Resident Evil trilogy without totally throwing out the action elements of RE4 and beyond, and is generally a lot of fun to creep through the environments figuring out the puzzles and occasionally blowing away the bioweapons. The narrative isn't great but all the voice actors and such are excellent.

 

I feel like the Gold Edition is worth it; you get one of the two mini-campaigns (the other is technically free) that play quite differently (and more action-oriented) to tie up loose plot ends. The rest of the DLC is 'Banned Footage' which varies a bit more; you have a wave shooter type mode where you collect resources to build gear to stay alive for several waves, a short prequel of what happened to set off the events of the game, an escape room type game where you have to solve puzzles while avoiding the attention of a monster, and a very variant blackjack played under the watchful eyes of one of the gore-obsessed psychos from the main game.

 

The Solus Project is mostly a good game if you appreciate the genre. It bills itself as a survival game, but it's really an exploration/puzzle focused game where you occasionally have to manage your temperature and food/water. The atmosphere is great, the voice acting is superb (though there isn't much of it), and the gameplay is pretty solid if you're into it, though I feel the survival elements are too simple for enthusiasts and too annoying for casuals (note that you CAN turn these off).

 

The narrative is a garbled mess and I intensely dislike the ending, but the journey is worth it.

 

Sprint Vector is a game I'm just getting into, but I can really appreciate what it's going for. It's a novel racing game based around a simple sprint-like arm motion using the Moves. There's a lot of potential to it, but it's definitely the kind of thing you've got to develop your skills with to be any good at.

 

Ultrawings is a civilian flight sim often described as 'like Pilotwings'. You use the moves to operate all the bits in the cockpit, you do various flying through rings and popping balloons and taking pictures on a small chain of ~4 major islands. I'm not a big connoisseur of flight sims, but it strikes a nice balance between control complexity and arcade-y flying. It's a tad grindy (though I think a recent update adjusted this), but there are four planes to try and a LOT of missions to tackle. I recommend it if you're looking for a flight game that doesn't involve combat.

 

Wipeout is another one I haven't spent enough time with, but it's an exhilarating arcadey racer, especially if you aren't prone to motion sickness and turn off all the comfort options. All I can say is for $6 it's a real steal if you're at all into racing games.

So I was browsing the Gamestop website earlier today and noticed that this game apparently got a physical release:

 

Roller Coaster Tycoon Joyride

 

https://www.gamestop...ide-psvr/169908

 

Only 1 Gamestop within 250 miles of me has it in stock.  The thing is I can't remember it ever being up for preorder, or even in stock new.  Anyone know how long ago it came out?  Does anyone besides Gamestop sell it?

Walmart.com has it.  It showed up on their site in early December.

Sounds like about the time that the other Atari releases came out that Best Buy and some other retailers don't seem to be carrying.

Finally broke down and bought Beat Saber at full price. The first vr game to get me to do that. Watch it go on sale next week. Otherwise awesome game, got me sweating good. Already wishing we had more songs in it though.

Beat Saber has only had 2 songs come out since launch.  They said they had 3 10-packs in the works to be released soon so I'd expect one of them to come out in the near future.

 

I have a lot of fun trying to beat my high scores on expert and I still don't have S grade on all levels on expert yet nor full combos.  Full combos are going to be hard to get for all songs, if I can even do it.  I have S on like probably 12 songs on expert though.  There are only like 1 or 2 songs that I don't really like, but when playing them they are still fun.

Try out Firewall Zero Hour this weekend for free if you have PS+

 

 

Too bad you need PS+ to try it out.  If I could try it out and liked it, then maybe I would get PS+ again.

I have Thumper for the Switch. This will be a good chance to try it out in VR to see if it's worth buying twice. Thanks for the heads up

There are only two games that aren't on one of the other demo discs - Astrobot and Superhot. I dunno if there's a difference in the demos between discs, but Battlezone, Thumper, and Job Simulator are back for the third time.

My copy's still in shipping, but I was pretty much sold on 'VR game with roguelike elements' when I first played the Demo Disc 2 demo, which I'm pretty sure is older than the one mentioned a page or two back. Supposedly the newer one is a better showcase of the mechanics. I seem to recall having difficulty getting acclimated to head aiming, which may or may not be a dealbreaker, but overall the demo was competent enough to lead me to risk my ~$20 on it.

I called up QVC yesterday when I noticed the bundle was back in stock. They were able to approve a new order with the same price of $89.96 after mine was canceled. After tax and shipping, it came out to about $115 and I just saw it was updated to shipped status!

Now to sell off my launch release headset.

Why would you sell your launch headset?  You won't get very much for it and you'll want it as a back up in case your new one ever kicks the bucket.
