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.

Hex: Heavy Encounter EXOsuit

/
Many of us who have been in the Gear VR game for a while are familiar with Robot Invader and I'm sure I'm not the only one who was pretty excited to see a new game from the studio show up in the store on Wednesday. In case you aren't a member of this group, Robot Invader is the studio who made Dead Secret. If that still doesn't ring a bell for you, then you need to stop reading this right now, go to the Oculus Store and purchase Dead Secret. It was one of the earlier games on the store and remains one of the best to this day. For the rest of you, the game I'm talking about here is Hex: Heavy Encounter EXOsuit.

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.
