Saw some trailers for this and have to admit I quite like the look of it. Will definitely look to pick up pending reviews.

On the PSVR front I tried Wipeout this morning. Going to have to look into the settings as the 1 race I completed left me feeling rather nauseous...

So, I now own the PSVR :slol:

Been playing it all afternoon and it's just brilliant. Still getting used to some things and waiting on a load of free demos and experienced to download but so far I'm impressed. I got Firewall: Zero Hour as the free game from the Argos deal but only had a quick go on the tutorial so far :toot:

Guessing Firewall is standalone without the Aim controller, how is it with a dualshock?

Get yourself a dirt cheap copy of Star Wars Battlefront off Ebay, download the extra VR mission. Superhot VR is still on offer on the PS Store which is very good. Resident Evil 7 in VR is a must too.

Yeah standalone, it works fine with the dualshock but it's clearly designed with Aim in mind. Still havent had much of a go on it though as everyone else wants to try all the demos and experiences that you get with VR Worlds and the Playroom etc.

I've actually got Battlefront 1 so am downloading the VR mission for it now, I've only heard good things :msgreen:

I tried the Kitchen demo earlier, strawberry float me that was terrifying, my wife refused to even get passed the start menu :lol:

I think Resi 7 will be on my list, going cheap now too from what I've seen (£16-17).

It's a tenner at Game, brand new, at the moment.

Finally managed to have a proper go on Firewall... lasted 5 minutes. That made me feel really sick :dread:

Perhaps I need to fiddle with the controls, but it's put me off even trying to be honest.

Think I'll stick to puzzle games and stationary/cockpit experiences.

Blurgh.

How is the cinema mode? I like the idea of playing something like Destiny or Street Fighter through it. Would this be enjoyable?

I hadn't even considered the fact that you could play regular games through the headset, definitely going to give that a try!

Tried the Tumble demo this afternoon and was excellent - definitely going to get the full game.

Framerate is no different to watching it via your TV.

Finally managed to play the Battlefront VR mission - hands down one of the most amazing gaming experiences I've ever had.

They need to make a full game of that, utterly incredible :shock:

Wipeout is £12.99 in today's sale. If you've got a PSVR and don't own this then you should buy it immediately.

Tempted, but also concerned that it'd bring out the very worst of my motion sickness :dread:

My initial play of Wipeout in VR left me feeling terrible. I understand there are settings that can be changed and will look into those at some point, but initial signs aren't promising!
