I imagine it's the sort of game it's better to have digitally so you can fire it up regularly as opposed to fishing out the disk each time.

Hey, Lime, yeah - the update is due "soon". I can't wait to try it out! As an online game, I'd agree that a digital version is handy to have.

Edit: That link doesn't work properly due to the size of the thread; the info is on page 178, Lime :-) .

Online? I don't have psplus. Is this going to be a problem?

You'll be absolutely fine to play in single-player mode, Lime. TBH, I haven't even tried the online multiplayer mode myself, yet.

Edit: Actually, I'm not certain that you need PS Plus for the multiplayer aspects... but I assume that you would.

Finally got around to playing Blood and Truth but I'm feeling disappointed.

Apart from still trying to find the best way to play, sitting or standing, and getting my damn machine gun to holster it just feels a bit ....dull.

When sitting in the car there is no body which takes away the feeling of actually being in the vehicle. Same when on the plane, it is like you're a ghost in there with arms only. When jumping from buildings i didn't really get a sense of depth.

Yes shooting enemies whilst strafing is fun but I'm also having issues reloading at times as sometimes it just switches the gun to the other hand instead of loading the cartridge.

The graphics are a bit hit and miss at times through the headset too.

It is all a bit meh and I turned it off.

To think, before the margin PSVR prices I saw this for sale for less than £30 with a game! Prices are way overpriced.

Not quite sure what you mean by that, but if you really saw the AIM controller with a game for £30 it was priced to clear. It was originally released at £75 in the bundles with a game.

I didn’t have any problems in with the controls? May have to recalibrate.

No depth? I nearly panicked when I jumped off a building and had to grab on a container that’s swing towards me. :slol:

It’s one of the best PSVR games, for me. It’s amazing.

Played my PSVR the other night after a few months off following x-Wing-Vomit-Gate, and even just playing Tumble sat down I got the queasy feelings pretty quickly. Packed it away after maybe 15 minutes, just wasn't feeling it at all.

I think I might have broken VR for myself :(

Finally got my Oculus Quest on Thursday :D I'd pre-ordered at the time of release but they were out of stock and I waited a few weeks before cancelling, had decided not to bother but managed to get one with 10% off so I couldn't resist.

So far I'm really impressed with it, my wired VR systems (Rift CV1 and PSVR) are both in a smaller room which is fine for most VR content but a bit restrictive if I want to play more active games. Being able to play in a larger room makes it much better and I was actually able to enjoy playing beat saber (demo) this morning without the fear of putting my fist through my monitor. The screen looks a lot nicer to me than the Rift CV1 and although it's heavier I'm not really finding it to be that much worse than the CV1 for comfort (Although I haven't played for any huge length of time as yet). The controllers feel a little cheaper than the original Touch controllers to me but they're equally intuitive to use. Not having to mess about with sensors is great, I've never had a flawless experience with 3 sensors on the Rift so just having it all work straight away is so nice and I've had no tracking issues so far either.

I'm really glad that they decided to do cross buy for some titles as it's meant that I've already got a few games to play without having to spend anything, I did pick up Vader Immortal though and I'll probably double dip on Superhot VR/Beat Saber as they seem perfect for Quest.

Going to try out streaming from my PC later to see how well it works but so far, so good!

How was your streaming experience with the Quest?

I'm really tempted to jump on to VR, and I think the Quest probably ticks more boxes for me than the Rift. Untethered vr sounds preferable, being able to play on other rooms of the house, rather than in the same room as my PC, and the specs for a standalone piece of kit seem really impressive.

As for the Rift S, while a dedicated PC VR headset would obviously give me more impressive performance, I'd also need to upgrade my PC, and I'm not quite ready to do that yet, as aside from VR requirements, I'm happy with how everything else runs for now. It would be interesting though if I could use the quest to stream to once I do upgrade.

Golem has been confirmed to launch exclusively on PSVR this Autumn.
The wording suggest it is a timed exclusive and will come to other formats.

Image

Highwire Games and Perp Games are absolutely thrilled to reveal that Golem will emerge from the shadows in both physical and digital form on PSVR this Fall. Built by a team of world-class industry veterans and described by Polygon as a “Supergroup of Developers”, Golem is one of the most eagerly anticipated games of the year.

Featuring music from the award-winning composer Marty O’Donnell, creator of the soundtrack for Halo and Destiny, innovative game design by Jaime Griesemer, the Game Designer on Halo & Destiny, and developed by a team instrumental in some of the best-loved games of all time, Golem has the world-class pedigree to be a flagship title for PlayStation® VR.

In Golem you take on the role of Twine, an adventurous kid who has been left critically injured by a serious accident. While you can’t leave your bed, you develop an extraordinary ability to create and control large stone golems and see the world through their eyes.

You can use your golems to explore an enormous abandoned city, collecting treasure and artefacts, while unravelling a deeper mystery and discovering the connection between the city and your family. Designed from the ground up for VR, the game also has an innovative free movement control scheme and intense one-to-one melee combat that sees you feint, block, and counter-attack your enemies.


Golem has been in development for several years as Highwire Games have spent time refining and polishing the experience to the highest possible standard. Now they’re ready to share what they’ve been working on with the rest of the world.

Of the announcement, Jaime Griesemer, Creative Director at Highwire, says “It’s so gratifying to see our original vision for Golem come together into a full experience. We’ve really had to push ourselves and the technology, but I think the game is beautiful and I can’t wait for everyone to be able to play it. And we’re pretty old school, so it won’t feel ‘finished’ for us until we see it on store shelves.”

Rob Edwards, Managing Director of Perp Games, is thrilled to be publishing one of PSVR’s most highly anticipated exclusives. “Golem has been a long-time coming but the wait is almost over. It is our honour to be working with such an amazing team of world-class talent. We can’t wait to explore Golem’s secrets.”

Golem features music from award-winning composer Marty O’Donnell, creator of the soundtrack for Halo and Destiny. As an added bonus for fans, the Physical Edition of Golem will also include a downloadable version of “Echoes of the First Dream” the musical prequel to the game.

Golem will launch this Fall as a PlayStation® VR exclusive and will receive a physical release through Perp Games in Europe and North America.

Quest is a fantastic device but don't take the PC streaming into account when buying one. It's still alpha and is very temperamental. When it works it's fantastic but it's best to buy a quest for the quest library.

Apologies for the late reply Knoyleo, I just spotted this!

I haven't really spent a lot of time with the streaming from PC but so far I'd echo what Rog has said, it's a nice perk and can work really well but I wouldn't make it a major factor in purchasing a quest. From my experience it works better for slower paced games, I tried it with Fallout VR and it worked well, whereas fast paced games based about reaction can be totally broken by it, as I found with Audioshield. It will improve over time though and the faster your wifi connection is I'd imagine the better experience you'll have.

I'd definitely recommend the Quest on its own merits though, it's already building a strong library of games with more to come and untethered VR feels like a huge leap forward. It's a great piece of kit.

It looks like the Valve index has either fulfilled all it's orders or they increased production as you can get the full set in 4 to 8 days now.
