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.
cerevrum

Cerevrum looks like it could benefit from more of a description than I can give it here, but so far it looks like an interesting twist on a turret shooter. The twist is that in order to fire your guns at the baddies, you have to complete brain bending tasks. One task includes launching coloured balls out into space where they lose their colour and then mix themselves up and you have to remember which is which to fire your gun. Another has a number of little critters pop out of holes. Some are identical, some are not. It then shows you two of the holes and asks you if the two critters inside are the same or not. Sounds simple, but it can get tough as occasionally a new critter will pop out of a hole and you have to remember that that one hole is now different.

It seems the team behind Cerevrum is specially qualified to make a game like this with background in both neuroscience and gaming. It looks great too, so if you enjoy challenging your mind and you can afford it (it’s free, you can) then give the game a shot.
