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.

Your city is being overrun by zombies and you run down an alley because, why not? You’re probably dead anyway. But this alley is a dead end. Now, armed with only a nail gun and a chainsaw, you must fend off an endless wave of brain-hungry pseudo-living monsters who apparently have no one left to feed on except for you. Oh, and this one chick who keeps walking out of a club or something, totally oblivious to what is going on, and then just leaves without even acknowledging your presence or the fact that you very kindly didn’t put a nail through her ears for getting between you and the mindless horde. At least she has the courtesy to drop a health pak every single time.

This is a turret…uh, a turret-chainsaw-er, I guess. The graphics are great. A good cartoony style so you can let the kids try the game without too much worry about them being scared. But there is a decent amount of cartoony blood, so you’ll have to decide if the kiddos are ready for that. Unfortunately the gameplay seems a bit lacking. I kept trying to walk, thinking that there had to be more to the game. But it’s basically wait until the zombie gets close and then tap the trackpad and watch them burst. Repeat. Every once in a while you will have to deal with a “tank” zombie, but they are only slightly more difficult. It can be fun for a while and at only $1.99 it could be worth it just to kill some time for a while.
