Join Me At Dads And Dragons

/
Daryle here. My time with VR Giant has come to an end. Actually, it came to an end a while ago. But fret not if you're one of the few regulars who enjoyed my content here, I have only moved places. You can now find me at Dads And Dragons.com where I will still be reviewing virtual reality games among other things. My time with VR Giant, especially at the height of its popularity, was one of the most amazing periods of my life. After 20 years of looking forward to virtual reality I somehow wound up with a website where I got to write about it and managed to snag a satisfying chunk of audience. I was able to foster relationships with game developers, other folks in the VR media, people at Oculus and far more VR users than I likely ever would have without a website. This is where I feel like I should thank the people who made it possible. That would be you, the reader. I've had lots of blogs in my time that no one was reading. Having an audience makes it a totally different beast. A better beast. The kind of beast you can get excited about. When you hear people say they couldn't have done it without you, turns out they actually mean it. Well, I do anyway. They might be lying to your face. There are others who I would like to thank, but they don't much care for the spotlight so I will just say thank you and they will know who they are.

Fusion Wars Quick Look

/
If you've been wanting a great first person shooter game that is fast and not only has, but requires full controller support, then Fusion Wars may just be the game that you've been waiting for. It isn't perfect, but it's the most polished game we've seen in a long time. I suspect it will take it's position among the ranks of games like Anshar Wars 2, Esper 2, Dead Secret and other Gear VR greats.

Starfighter Arduxim

/
Starfighter Arduxim is the latest space shooter game to grace the Gear VR. It follows in the footsteps of Anshar Wars, Anshar Wars 2, End Space, Cosmos Warfare...um, Starship Disco? How loose are we going with comparisons here? Anyway, the point is, there have been a lot of space shooter games on the Gear VR and to be honest, even though I am sick to death with space (which is something I never thought I would say, but there we are) I really enjoyed it. As a matter of fact, it is the first game I've played all the way through in a long time.
Baskhead

Baskhead is a game where you have basketballs being tossed at your hoop-clad face and your job is to ensure the balls go through the hoop. If that doesn’t sound like fun to you, what about if I told you there were some half decent video game cheerleaders on the floor in front of you while you did this? Still no? What if I told you that there were different modes such as, score points to increase timer? Or score as many points as you can before the timer runs out? Or maybe, if you miss one ball it’s game over? Does any of that make you want to play this game? If not I can’t help you because that seems to be all it has to offer.


If Baskhead were free I would say give it a shot. If it were $0.99, I would say, play at your own risk. But at $3.99, even though it looks pretty good graphically, I would say play it only if $3.99 means nothing to you.
