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.

Yeah it's good that they have variety for sure.  The last track pack was Imagine Dragons so I just didn't expect more of that pop/rock/alternative genre for the next track pack.  I was hoping they would go back to EDM.  They've only had 3 pay track packs and only 1 of them is EDM thus far.

I'm on the side of preferring songs I recognize, but I realize EDM is safe because you either love it or you don't care. I won't buy Panic at the Disco pack ever, even free, but some people are excited. I also would hesitate to buy more EDM because "it's more of the same" in my non-fan view.

Oh, believe me, it's not just love it or don't care. I absolutely hate EDM. It's why I haven't bought Beat Saber and why I get so frustrated with Rhythm games these days. I love Rhythm games, but they've strayed so far away from Rock and into EDM that I can't play any without my ears bleeding now. Even Rock Band, which may not have moved into EDM yet, pretty much stopped releasing rock songs and now only seems to release songs from indie metal bands. I just wish Beat Saber would take the Beat Hazard/Audiosurf way of doing things and let you loadup your own mp3s.

Utterly unfair comparison to a PC game. Will never happen on console using your own music.

I mention Audiosurf purely because it was the first game to do it so I wanted to give it props.  However, Beat Hazard is on PS3 and lets you use your own music. So does Space Invaders Infinity Gene and Kickbeat (both PS3) and Starship Disco (PS4.) That fair enough for you?

PSVR sale this week to celebrate the 3rd anniversary of its launch. List of titles in the link:

Unfortunately, it's the same old fucking shit we've seen time and time again (with the exception of Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot for $10). I was really hoping for Five Nights at Freddy's VR at the very least. Still waiting on that hypothetical Halloween sale...

It's been awhile since I've put on the ol' headset. Doesn't seem that long ago I was reviewing a bunch of horror games this month last year. Looks like the only one I'll be getting to this Halloween is Rise of Insanity (on sale a few weeks back). I decided against Five Nights at Freddy's for $20.99 because it's way too expensive for cheap jump scares.

 

Anyway, Barry Burton asked about Rise of Insanity once, so here's the lowdown. It's definitely not worth it if you don't have VR (you can play without). It's such a barebones walking simulator and one of the simpler games I've played. The plot is rudimentary and the "twist" easy to figure out, and the game lasts about an hour, unrushed. There is one sequence that looked cool in VR, but sadly not much more. Definitely not worth it for full price, though it might be more easily digestible at $5 or less. There are a few jump scares littered throughout, and yeah, they got me every time (because they're cheap and easy).

Thinking about taking the VR plunge. What's the best deal on hardware? And do the PS3 motion controllers work? I still have my PS3 move set up.

There are $200 deals that will be popping up around black friday.  They won't come with move controllers and your PS3 ones will work, so you don't need a bundle with them.

 

Anyone know how much Audica will be?  As much as I enjoy Beatsaber, I'm guessing I will like that game as well.

Yes, PS3 motion controllers work fine in VR, glad you kept 'em!

Anyone get Audica?  I thought it would be $20 like the Steam version but it's $30 so it wasn't an impulse buy for me.  I'm curious how those who like Beat Saber feel about it.

Just watched that video for Audica. It looks like it’s trying to ape the Beat Saber formula, yet managed to look very...not good. I was instantly hyped from my first peek at Beat Saber and when I got it I was not wrong. This game didn’t grab me in the same way though.

The gameplay feels a little more varied but less refined than Beat Saber. The interface is a little lacking and notes seem to spawn outside of the field-of-view, but patches could remedy all of the gripes I have.

 

Unless you really like the OST or are desperate for more Beat Saber-like games I'd wait for a patch and/or sale. The core gameplay is there for sure, but it'll (probably) only get better as time goes on.

Thanks for the quick review.

 

The complaint about notes off screen is something I read about on the PC version from like April and I doubt they have fixed that if it's in the PSVR version.  I think I'll probably wait a bit at this point.

You know, I should just buy Moss now so I don't forget. PSN discount promos are pretty much dead, and I doubt there are any new copies left for retailers to put on sale.

I was looking at the BF bundles and was wondering if anyone could share information on the games in the bundles. My biggest concern is that I want to play Astro Bot & Moss which have a bundle together, but does the Mega pack bundle have too much value to pass? 

 

 
Target/Best Buy: PlayStation VR Mega Pack bundle with five games - $199.99
Astro Bot: Rescue Mission
Resident Evil 7
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR
Everybody's Golf VR
PlayStation VR Worlds
 
Kohls: PlayStation VR bundle with Astro Bot (Disc) and Moss (Voucher) w/ $60 Kohls cash - $199.99
 
Best Buy: Save $100 on Playstation VR Bundles
Playstation VR with Move controllers, and Everybody's Golf (Voucher) & Blood & Truth (Voucher) Bundle - $249.99
PlayStation VR Mega Pack bundle with five games Bundle - $199.99 
PlayStation VR with Trover (Game Voucher) & Five Nights at Freddy's (Voucher) Bundle - $199.99

VR Worlds is like a $5 game at this point.  I'd bet Resident Evil is too.  I bought the Elder Scrolls bundle when it was new and never even opened that game before I sold it.  Everybody's Golf I wouldn't pay more than like $15 or $20 since it's just a barebones game, although the demo is pretty neat.  But it's like 3 courses and absolutely no online so it will get boring quick.

 

If it were me, I'd get the Kohl's bundle and use that $60 Kohl's cash to buy move controllers.  So you could basically get the Moss/Astro Bot bundle with 2 move controllers for $240 out of pocket.

I gather the "Mega Bundle" doesn't include controllers? Still, it's the better value if you break down the games. Here are the lowest (digital) prices according to PSPrices.com:
 
Astro Bot: Rescue Mission - $19.99
Resident Evil 7 - $14.99
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR - $21.59
Everybody's Golf VR - $29.99
PlayStation VR Worlds - $4.49
 
Moss - $14.99
 
The $60 Kohl's cash is good, plus saving $15 for Moss (assuming you're only interested in that and Astro Bot), but the Mega pack still has a fine assortment of games. And finding Move controllers will be a pain in the ass (I doubt Kohl's carries them), though you don't need it for any of those 6 games.

RE7 has held value well. Especially the gold edition simply for the vr

Wow I just learned that PSVR can do 3d blu rays? Anyone ever try this?

My 3d tv just recently broke so maybe I don’t have to get rid of my 3d Blu ray collection after all...

Mind blown.  Also highly skeptical.  Also slightly too lazy to research this right now.

hmmmm on sony's site it seems to indicate no:

 

https://support.play...?language=en_US

 

"Watching 3D Content

In Cinematic Mode, PS VR will display 3D games and films in 2D when playing on a 3D-compatible TV. When playing with non 3D-compatible TVs, PS4 won’t play 3D games and films."
 
Im going to have to try this when I get home. 
 
EDIT: theres plenty of youtube videos of people saying it works though. strange.

Is that true?  Because I also got rid of my 3D TV and was bummed by not being able to watch my 3D movies any more, then it occurred to me that PSVR can play 3D movies.  Is that not the case?
