Loading Human: Chapter 1 Review – Starting Point (PSVR)

[embedded content] Gaming in virtual reality is currently in its infancy, and the PlayStation VR launch lineup has shown us that developers are very much learning as they go. Unlike conventional gaming there aren’t predefined rules of what works and what falls flat, so we’re already seeing different developers take vastly different approaches to different problems. One of the biggest challenges has been movement, as first-person games with analog control have made players extremely sick (looking at you Here They Lie and Resident Evil VII). Untold Games, the developer behind first-person adventure title Loading Human, have come up with a pretty interesting way to deal with it even if I wouldn’t call it ideal. Using two PlayStation Move controllers, players move by pointing the controller either forward or backwards) and pressing the Move button. Yes, to take a step back, you have to point the controller over your shoulder. That control scheme is as awkward as it seems, and the ability to shift your stance (by pressing the move button on the other PlayStation Move controller) makes it even more convoluted. Despite a rather long introductory section that is built solely on showing the controls, I only really got the full hang of Loading Human‘s control…

Editor’s Review Guide to PlayStation VR Games and Applications

The PlayStation VR has finally hit the market and with it dozens of games, experiences and everything in between. Along with the PlayStation VR headset, DualShockers has tried out as many games as we could get our hand on and (after spending countless hours in other realities) we are ready to make a few summary judgments on where you should be spending your money. Below, check out our brief reviews of both the PlayStation VR games as well as the major applications coming out — and yes, we will keep this list updated through the launch window: Developer: No Goblin LLCPrice: $19.99 100ft Robot Golf is a fantastic mashup of games I would never expect to merge, in games or otherwise. Featuring Sunday-morning-cartoon style anime robots and dead pan comedy from golf commentators, the experience clicks stylistically and will regularly keep you laughing. Utilizing the PSVR headset, players will be able to see from the perspective of the 100 foot behemoths as you knock down buildings, fly from place to place, and — of course — try to hit a few birdies. And while the experience hits a ton of high notes stylistically, the gameplay (as compared to other golf titles) leave some…

[embedded content] Developer Lince Works announced today that Aragami, their stealth game where you play as an undead assassin with the power to control the shadows, will be available on October 4 in North America and Europe for PlayStation 4 and PC. In addition to a digital release, the PS4 version will be available at retail, with a Signature Edition also up on Signature Edition Games for $52. The regular retail edition (price TBA) includes the game, digital art book, and digital soundtrack. The Signature Edition includes the game, the official soundtrack CD, an art book, and a signed box. Lince Works Studio Head David talked about how you’ll use your shadow powers: Using your shadow powers, you will be able to teleport between shadows, create shadow paths to avoid detection by enemies, create shadow decoys and weapons, and even summon shadow creatures that will strangle or decapitate your enemies. We’ve catered the game to two distinct playstyles — Ghosts and Demons. Ghosts are the type of players that prefer to be silent assassins that leave no traces behind. Demons, on the other hand, are brutal killing machines that love to vanquish every enemy in the area. Whichever playstyle you…
