Anyone pick up Paranormal Activity?

I did and it is fantastic. Most terrifying experience I've had in VR so far. I was planning to play last night but I chickened out. Well worth the purchase price. Puts RE7 to shame when it comes to being flat out scary.

RE7 is so fucking scary for me, I feel like my hearts gonna explode. My best friend had been coming over to play and I would watch, but he passed away a few months ago and I've been to scared to carry on his torch and finish the game.

I'd love to get Paranormal Activity, but I just don't like the idea of moving around without an analog stick.

Damn dude, that game scared him to the point of giving him a heart attack?  I wouldn't want to finish the game either!

It takes a little bit of getting used to but honestly I love using the move controllers with it. Using a flash light with one hand while opening a door with the other really adds to the overall feeling of it. Then you run out of batteries and only have a lighter in pure darkness...

So how do you actually move around the environment.  Please don't let it be teleporting. :(

Nope, Square on the Left move controller will move you forward. X on the left controller will make you move backward. Where you turn your head is the direction you will start to move toward but you also have buttons on the right move controller that will turn you about 45 degrees in either directions roughly. I believe X and O. The control scheme is not an easy one to get the hang of but it really does work quite well once you do and I completely understand why they did it. Like I mentioned before you are holding a flash light in one hand and opening doors with the other. Also when your flash light runs out you have to manually put the batteries in by selecting them from inventory with your free hand and putting them into the bottom of the flashlight. If any of you do pick this one up make sure you are wearing headphones because the sound is fantastic.

 

Now that I think about it I haven't felt one bit of nausea/eye strain in about 2 hours of straight gameplay which is odd considering I could only play RE7 for about 45 to an hour clips. Not sure what the difference is.

My GameStop order arrived within about an hour of getting the BB email about the pick-up being ready, so I'll have to do the return tomorrow and pick-up after that.

Ha, maybe I should get it.  It may be good practice for when Skyrim comes out.

I highly recommend it.. I just played again and made it about 15 minutes before I literally screamed out loud. This is the only game that has ever made me do that. Now my wife won't stop harassing me lol. I told her she is going to be giving it a try in the near future.

Thanks for your input. The controls actually sound pretty good. I was worried that it was all telaporting. I'm most likely going to pick it up while it's still on sale.

Does Paranormal Activity actually have combat of any kind or is it more of an "Experience"? Can you die in the game?

Made a video on Darknet, which is a pretty cool puzzle hacker game:

Yes you can die but there is no real "combat". It's a lot of puzzles and trying to figure out certain things in a big creepy house with all sorts of bad things going on around.

 

I've swung my hands around in attempt to hit things coming at me at least 4-5 times in pure fear.. go go gadget flashlight combat!

Yeah I'm asking someone who had access to all of the modes and has experienced the online landscape. The ARMS demo was trash. It wasn't a good representation of the full game... which is pretty good.

Does the farpoint bundle include a move controller? Or is it the housing for it and the game only?


The Aim controller is it's own unique thing. It has joysticks so a regular move controller wouldn't have worked

Farpoint is great. The part where you get to the giant spider/crab boss is amazing and an awe-inspiring sight, you have to tilt your head up just to be able to see the size of this thing

 

They need to hype this game & the aim controller more. Throw it in a bundle with the VR headset.

Starblood Arena physical copies are down to $10 now on Amazon. I'm not sure if this is a permanent price drop or if they are just matching someone else's sale price.
