Neon8 is pretty weird. As you can read in the Oculus store description, you are a warrior in the metaverse and your job is to save the Neon8, which are some sort of strange computer baby, from the in/Zexts. In/Zexts are the bug-like monsters that are trying to devour the Neon8. To do this you run, jump, fly and shoot your way around anywhere from 1 to 6 or more floating islands picking up the defenseless Neon8 which are completely immobile.
I’ve just finished playing Affected: The Manor and I have to say, this is probably what horror games or experiences in VR ought to be. It’s creepy, it looks great, it’s not too long and even though it has it’s share of jump scares, you pretty much know when they are coming and can be prepared. In other words, you’ll be able to get through this one.
Things have been a little bit slow for the Gear VR over the last few months. We had the occasional bigger release tossed in among much more casual and in some cases pointless affairs. But that all changed this week with Oculus seemingly going crazy and releasing everything that they have all at once.

But easily the best of the bunch are the two that did not get a soft-launch. Wands and Smashing the Battle.
Gunfire games contacted me not too long ago and said they noticed that I hadn’t reviewed Chronos yet and would I like a key to be able to do so? I told them that I would love a key, but my system isn’t up to spec so I’m not sure it would run. I’m rocking a GTX 770 and a DK2 on this bad boy (I’m referring to my computer.) He said he was going to check with the team to see what they said about it. After a few days I became impatient and asked if he had learned anything and he said they weren’t sure but I was welcome to try it. And try it I did.
I just finished watching the Nintendo Switch press conference. I had been waiting as patiently as I was able since the October Switch reveal to finally get more information about the Switch. It was an uncomfortable presentation to see as all of the presenters were Japanese and dubbed over in English at times by someone who sounded like his dog had died immediately before stepping up to the mic
