I was very interested in this deal but shipping from Gamestop to me was $10 (so with tax it was over $32 for me), and Amazon never lowered their price below $30 yesterday.

Yeah, I'll just wait for other retailers to lower their price as well.  Just like with Tetris Effect, I think Gamestop was just the first one to do it in the next several weeks,

I was just browsing through this week's new releases. Anyone up for a torture simulator (where you play as the hostage)?

 

Blindfold: A Vérité VR Experience - $1.99 - $1.79 - 10% off - Ends 9/17
 
At two bucks, I'm guessing it's a 5-minute experience which should have been free in the first place. However, it's a "companion piece" to 1979 Revolution: Black Friday (a historical narrative-adventure game I enjoyed), so I guess I'll be checking it out at some point.

I played through the Moss DLC last night. It was short but man oh man it was cool. I highly recommend the game if you don't have it yet.

I just watched Groundhog Day for the first time last night and really loved it. Now I’m looking forward to checking out the game

Nice. I haven’t gotten around to trying it yet, but I bought it specifically because of the added VR support. Glad to hear that by the time I get around to it that it will be an even better version

Does anyone own Ark Park?  I'm curious how realistic the dinosaurs and overall environments look.  I know people say the gameplay sucks, but I might get it if it's immersive enough.

I just played through Blindfold: A Vérité VR Experience. Contrary to its title, you're never blindfolded, only gagged, therefore you can only respond by nodding and shaking your head. It's a 10-minute scenario that takes place entirely in an interrogation room where you're accused of committing a crime. In front of you, a blindfolded man bears the brunt of the consequences depending on whether you cooperate or resist. There are two endings and four trophies to earn (though they haven't been synced to the PlayStation network yet). There's not much else to say about it. It could have been a chapter from Blood & Truth, but on its own it feels empty (it's designed as a "companion piece" to 1979 Revolution: Black Friday), and I never felt like I was in any real danger. Then again, it's only $1.79 (till 9/17) so I'm not sure how much further it will drop.

A new update for Blood & Truth is available for download starting today, with five fresh challenges that are compatible with the PS VR Aim Controller, and a new Hard Mode to dial up the action. Things are about to get a lot tougher!

 
Skeet Challenges
Time to take your skills to the next level with a new set of challenges where clay targets are flung in the air. It’s all about a steady hand and good aim so lock, load and get ready.
 
One more thing: we’ve hidden a gnome in every challenge. Can you spot them? Destroying all gnomes located across the Skeet Shooting Challenges unlocks the new GNOMAGEDDON Trophy.
 
Hard Mode
Blood & Truth makes you feel like you are in an action movie, but our new Hard Mode is really going to throw you into the heart of the missions!
 
You can now play individual missions in Hard Mode or the entire story using the New Game+ feature, which is unlocked upon completing the story in Cinematic or Normal difficulty.
 
Complete the whole story in Hard Mode and you’ll unlock a new Trophy!
Meh.

Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son is a pretty good game, just short of being great. It's developed by the team at Tequila Works who already have a masterful handle on the time loop genre (The Invisible Hours, The Sexy Brutale). It's a fun ride, just don't expect too much individual exploration or deviation from story. For a time loop narrative, it runs a fairly simple linear path with natural, logical progression: basically just repeat the objective until you get it right. This usually happens through dialogue choices, where you learn one thing and are able to use it the next day in order to advance the plot.

It feels like a traditional narrative adventure in VR, with some random mini-games meant to break up the gameplay. Since you are so limited in movement (you can only teleport to predesignated spots), it does feel like a wasted opportunity to really let loose and get into trouble. With no consequences -- since you repeat the same events over and over -- it would have been nice to get away with more crazy, rude, inconsequential stunts (no suicide montage here). Nevertheless, it's a very cool idea for a game, and a unique VR experience; I feel like I've just lived my own groundhog day.

There are enough callbacks to the movie (visual gags, characters, Sonny & Cher) to feel familiar, but it really is its own thing. Although not as likable or relatable as Bill Murray, there is a real redemptive arc to the main character that feels earned through the repetitive nature of the gameplay (which probably makes it seem longer than it actually is). The first thing I did in-game was pick up a nudie mag off the nightstand and immediately pop a boner (and trophy). Besides weird jokes like that and a few f-bombs littered throughout, I don't think it really earned its M rating. I was hoping it would be a bit edgier and lean more into sexual territory (which was a part of the movie), but for the most part, it played it safe.

tl;dr
Pros: Sweet story. If you're a fan of the movie, you'll enjoy this game. While not an instant classic, it does the movie justice.
Cons: Wasted opportunity; wish you had the freedom to do a lot more. Multiple endings would have added to replayability.

Not quite sure what you're asking in the last paragraph but if you have GCU and price match another retailer's sale price, GCU is not supposed to stack on top of the price match.  You get the lower of Best Buy's price with GCU or sale price of the price match.

 

GCU will stack on Best Buy's sale prices, or course, just not another retailer's.

Has anybody ever figured out a way to extend the play area of psvr? I hate moving the couch way up for seated experiences. I have to move it up like 3 feet. I hate getting the “Out of play area” message pop up, despite head tracking still seemingly working.

Once i put my camera way above my tv it fixed most of my previous tracking issues.

I've noticed some Amazon vendors have some pretty decent physical disc deals on alot of the PAL-only import games that we didn't get in the US. But unless you order multiple games at once the shipping kills the deal. Downward Spiral is only ten bucks from Amazon UK but shipping is 6 bucks. American Dream was $15 something the other day but now it's out of stock. I wish they would just release these games physically in our region, but at least the PS4 is region free. I really want Quivr as well.

Opinions: Stifled or Blind?

Opinions: Stifled or Blind?

Oof, it's a real Sophie's choice. Both had their merits and drawbacks. Stifled has more of a survival horror angle, while Blind is a straightforward puzzler. Stifled has decidedly uglier graphics, while Blind looks a bit more polished. I'm not sure which one I would declare "best" in this case. I think overall I had a better time with Blind (despite a few stumpers), but Stifled had better scares (and story). Neither game is particularly great in its own right, so it's hard to recommend one over the other.

Okay that Iron Man game has some damn potential.  I will keep an eye out on that.

 

I'm a bit disappointed with the latest Beat Saber track pack.  First of all, I had no clue "Panic at the DIsco" was an actual band/singer lol.  I thought that was just the name of the track pack.  And the one "High Hopes" song I cannot stand, and that is one of the songs.

 

Additionally, there are only 4 tracks.  I looked up all the tracks on youtube and have absolutely no interest in this track pack.

 

This is the first track pack I haven't bought.  I want more EDM music.

It's interesting you say that, I feel the opposite way. I don't dislike EDM music, but it seems like that's the only genre in games like Beat Saber. P!ATD is welcome from my perspective. The songs they chose aren't my favorite from their catalog but I'll take what I can get.
