I want to preface this articles by saying my experiences with the game were on the Oculus Quest 2
When I first got my virtual reality headset, the Oculus Quest 2, I was reluctant to spend money on games. For some reason I had it in my head that there would be enough free games out there to keep my interest. There were a few that were a lot of fun but it didn’t take long to figure out that in order to fully enjoy my headset I was going to need to spend money on some games.
After a lot of looking around I landed on Beat Saber as one of the first purchases I got (the other being Wander). I loved DDR growing up and this seemed like a similar variation of that so I had high hopes. I didn’t expect to fall in love with it as quickly as I did.
I started playing with the challenges and about half way into the first song I realized that the game is a stupid amount of fun! It truly feels like you’re using a saber to attack things. With the vibration in the controllers each “contact” really feels like you’ve just sliced through something. It makes the game extremely rewarding to play and draws me in way way too much.
Even though there is a decent amount of songs that the game comes with, you are able to purchase more for small fees. There is a Linkin Park pack that has my attention at the moment.
Try as I might I can’t really come up with any negatives about the game. Aside from the obvious, make sure you have a large enough space to play before buying it. Other than that the game seems fairly flawless. Motion sensitivity is very accurate and responds quickly. The movements are lined up really well with the songs. Challenges make sense and the initial walkthrough of the game easily explains how to play for someone who has never played before.
On top of all that I am slightly ashamed to admit it can be a pretty decent workout. Especially when I find myself playing for upwards of a half hour at a time.
Being my first real purchased game from a VR system I have been extremely happy with it. Not only have I put enough hours into the game to justify the cost within the first few days. I also have been able to share the game with others who haven’t played a VR console before because it’s so easy to pick up.
10/10 would recommend
Beat Saber is not only a fantastic first game to get on a VR system, it’s just a fantastic game to own. The price point is easy to tolerate and you’ll quickly play enough to justify that price point. On top of being a stupid amount of fun, it’s also a nice little bit of exercise each time you play.
There's a lot to take in from any E3 event. We've attempted to wrap up Nintendo's showcase is an easy to scroll through format for you to see what catches your eye! Keep checking back to see updated information about each game as it's released.
No Man's Sky. This game has gone through hoops to get to where it is today. Having managed to survive the initial flood of (well deserved) poor reviews, they are now in a position to turn that on it's head. Nothing like the original release, NMS is a game that might just eat up every spare second you have.

Game Builder Garage Done in classic Nintendo fashion this "game" walks you through the game creation process.
We all knew it was coming and finally Nintendo has confirmed it. Although they are still pretty tight lipped on what exactly the newest Switch will be called. Hopefully they learned from the ridiculous naming mistake of the Wii U. Nintendo recently started spending more on R&D saying it was for “the next platform”. Now
Now I don't talk about DND much on here and I have never talked about anything that is on Kickstarter but this project warranted a mention. Dungeon Full Dive: Make your tabletop world real! looks like an unbelievable possibility coming to PC and VR. Just watching the video gets me excited about playing a game with frie
Not only due to Covid keeping people at home but for so many other reasons Mario Party has not had the option to play against people who aren't sitting right next to you.

Although Super Mario Sunshine has been around for a while it still has a large following. Whether you love the game, hate it or haven't played it still plays a major role on the development of the Mario universe. The real question here is, does it hold up to the test of time?
Playstation has come out with everyone's best interests at heart. Our wallets. With the free release of 10 games for both 2D and the VR experience you're sure to find something that interests you. Assuming that you play Playstation that is.
Free games tend to be a large hit or miss market. There are some out there that are far too fun and should be charging something. While others aren’t worth the time it takes to download them. Bait is something that falls into the category of being worth the effort.
The initial hurdles of getting into the system can be frustrating. Honestly something that I found a little frustrating was attempting to read my WIFI password and enter it into the VR headset although I can only see where I am typing when I have the headset on. Aside from that the main struggles were just related to learning how to properly function with a headset on. The controls are very comfortable and easy to use making the process easier. After getting past that I got sucked into using the headset way way too much.
With the latest update to Stardew Valley there’s more reason than ever to get back into the game! Especially if you own it on console. SPLIT SCREEN CO-OP!!!!! This was a long time coming but even so I still am taken back by how much extra enjoyment is added to the game by playing it split screen with my partner.
Looking for a mobile game that not only has massive draw but will also get you out of the house? Something that you can play with others and even meet new people through? Ingress from Niantic is the game you're looking for.
There are a few games that are a major part of my childhood and Mario 64 is one of the top games of the “throwback” category to me. I remember spending hours trying to get through the simplest of tasks and I'm glad to say that as an adult the game is not so intimidating. Updated with smoother controls really elevates the gameplay to something a lot more enjoyable.
So a review of this game would be kinda absolutely useless based on the age of it. It’s been out forever so instead it lands as a Throwback to all those old games that bring back wonderful childhood memories. Much like Super Mario 64, I recall playing Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 obsessively as a child. Although it might not hold up as well as some games, the nostalgia is always nice.
