Which Is The Best System For VR Gaming?

Posted on June 26, 2017 at 7:54 pm

VR games have slowly begun to gather momentum and are gradually becoming worth the hardware investment. Games like Star Trek Bridge commander and Minecraft VR have turned VR from being simply a gimmick, to a worthy way to exeperience games.

But which system is the best for VR gaming? At the moment PC is adopting VR very well, but it requires a PC that can handle it which can cost a fair amount more than simply choosing one the other option. The other option being PS4 VR, a system that has many decent VR games already and several that are on PC too. The PS4 VR is also easier to use than the PC options, but it slumps when it comes to graphics and controller options.

In the end the PS4 Pro is a good choice for VR, providing you don’t already own a standard PlayStation 4. But if you already own one of these, it’s worth waiting until the next generation of VR capable consoles or if you can’t wait and have the extra money, buy a powerful a gaming PC.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

Posted on August 16, 2015 at 6:42 pm

Borderlands is a game series that I have never quite understood. The first game came out and, really, should have been everything I wanted from a game; four player co-op, shooting things, great art style, collecting loot and upgrades, unlocking rare weapons and driving around a planet running stuff over. It did not quite pan out that way for me though. It was a little dull, the shooting wasn’t fun and the art, while certainly unique, didn’t quite stand out for me in the way I was hoping it would.


I seemed to be alone in that opinion though; with the original game selling millions and spawning a series. Now we have Borderlands 2, Borderlands: The Pre Sequel and The Handsome Jack Collection which is a remastering of the games for modern generation consoles. With these new console life cycles now well underway it is only a matter of time before we see yet another Borderlands game. Maybe I’ll enjoy this one.

Mass Effect: An epic space opera

Posted on February 15, 2015 at 9:17 pm

Some games pretend to be epic; they promise grand set pieces, they promise romance, and war and humans overcoming strife to reach new heights. They all promise it, but very few deliver it on the same scale as the Mass Effect series. The game is a space opera like none before it; beautiful, grand worlds to visit as you, Command Shepard, face off against alien races that want nothing more than to destroy humanity. You quest across the universe trying to win favour from the other races to protect what shred of humanity there is left.

The game is a third person shooter with Bioware’s strong story telling roots clearly on show, with decision allowing you to become either humanity’s hero by helping as many as you can, or become evil by making decisions in your best interests alone. That element of choice, coupled with the game’s stellar production values and lightning fast gameplay made sure that Mass Effect was a debut to be proud of; and with the game out on all major consoles at the time everyone had a chance to get their hands on it.

Destiny: Gaming’s biggest franchise ever?

Posted on January 13, 2015 at 6:21 pm

One of the biggest gaming releases of the past decade has been Destiny. From the developers behind the Halo franchise, and the publishers behind Call of Duty and World of Warcraft, Destiny was slated to be the biggest franchise the gaming world has ever seen.

Promises of incredible gunplay, huge sprawling worlds, and the social interactions of the biggest MMOs meant that players were getting massively hyped before the game release. The launch went smoothly; players flocked to the game on Xbox 360, Xbox One, Playstation 4 and Playstation 3 before discovering that the game wasn’t quite what they were expecting.

Content seemed to be missing, the voice work and writing was poor, and Bungie had added “grinding” (performing the same actions over and over to slowly get towards arbitrary goals) instead of adding unique and difficult challenges.

Bungie has slowly begun to add content and change various things through updates, so maybe the game that players were promised is slowly coming.
