This trailer for Farpoint looks amazing. This isn’t the first game that has made me wish that I had a PSVR in spite of already having an Oculus Rift, Gear VR and unlimited access to an HTC Vive, but it is the best looking one so far.
Because I pre-ordered my Galaxy S8 I was able to pick it up before the official release date on the 28th and since then I’ve had a number of people ask me if I was going to do a review. I still don’t know. I’m not sure that I’m qualified to review a phone, but I have no problem outlining my thoughts about it, especially as it relates to my area of interest, VR. I will also be receiving the 2017 Gear VR because I pre-ordered, which is nice because I own the S6 Innovator Edition which takes only the S6 and therefore, won’t fit my S8. In the meantime I’m borrowing the 2016 Gear VR from Nathan (Kimono Dragon) so that I can try out the S8’s VR capabilities. I do not yet have the controller either, but when that comes I will do a full review.
In what will be a shock to no one born more than five minutes ago, it appears that we have not heard the last of the Oculus vs. Zenimax feud. Oculus motion for a retrial in the event the Court does not grant Defendants’ contemporarily filed Motion for Judgment as a Matter of Law has been approved.
Freeze Me is pretty much exactly the game that I’ve wanted since beating Mario 64 and never getting a proper sequel (we can debate until the end of time whether or not Super Mario Sunshine was a worthy successor and you will never convince me.) As soon as I heard about it’s development I began to follow it obsessively and watched every video that I could find on YouTube. This was partly because I was also developing a game and the fact that it was being made by one person was a pretty big inspiration and served to encourage me as I was learning. But a far bigger reason I was interested in it was that it was a bright, colourful platformer in the vein of Mario 64 and after twenty years I was finally going to get to play the game that I had been waiting for.
Welcome to the first segment in the 3D Platformer (3DP) Renaissance series! Today I am looking at Unbox, a game from a Manchester indie studio, Prospect Games. This isn’t a review. I’ve not played nearly enough of this game to give a review, but I have to be honest, I was surprised at the quality of this game. Unless there are some really big problems later in the game, I feel fine suggesting that if you want a cool, unique 3DP with fun characters and tons of charm that you need to play this game.
