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 the same prices at BB but you can price match. btw anyone else still have GCU and done price matches where they will price match both items at the sale price and not even look at your final GCU price. tried getting away with it again with Killing floor and had no luck.

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.
