There Were Some Great PlayStation VR Games at E3 2018!

Sony invested a lot of money in their PlayStation VR platform before it was launched, but it hasn’t exactly set the world on fire. The headset has underperformed against modest sales expectations and many people in the industry suspected that it would be absent at E3 this year. I know I wouldn’t have been surprised if it wasn’t there either. We were all wrong though. Sony had a massive booth at the show this year that had a TON of games in it. Below is a list of games that the EFG Staff enjoyed.

Editor’s Note: VR Games are not encouraged for younger gamers. The PSVR platform is specifically recommended for gamers age 13+.

The PSVR Games


Astro Bot: Rescue Mission

Developer: Sony Japan Studios

Platform: PSVR

Release date:Fall 2018


We got an opportunity to play this rather unique platformer utilizing the PS4 dualshock controller and the VR headset.  Moving Astro Bot around the environment to rescue is tiny robot friends was very similar to most other platformers and it took me a little while to realize what I was missing by not just simply turning my head to look around.  They made sure to use every inch of space in order to make you look around to find the correct way to get access the spots where they hide your goals. So really if you are a platform junkie with a soft spot for cute robots this might very well be the one for you.

 

Ghost Giant

Developer: Zoink

Platform: PSVR Exclusive

Release Date: TBD


This is a beautiful puzzle game coming to PSVR, you play a literal giant ghost who has been sent to help and protect a lonely, bullied boy named Louis. You interact with the world using a series of levers, knobs, and picking things up and moving them to solve problems and assist Louis. Get used to looking at everything and everywhere to find your solution.

 

Beat Saber

Developer: Hyperbolic Magnetism

Platform: PSVR, Oculus, HTC VIBE, Windows Mixed Reality

Release Date: TBD on PSVR, Out everywhere else

 

 

SPT: Space Pirate Trainer

Platform: Steam, Oculus, HTC Vive, Windows Mixed Reality and PSVR

Developer: I-lllusions Game and Media Development

Release Date: Currently Commercially Available (Arcade licenses only)

Do you want to be Starlord?  In 2018 you can with SPT, seriously, it is Galaga in VR and the enemies shoot back at you.  Space pistols for everyone!!!!!

 

Creed: Rise to Glory

Platform: PSVR

Developer: Survious

Release Date: 2018

Guess what, boxing makes you tired, and so will Creed on PSVR.  The gameplay was solid and fluid and really did force you to use the whole virtual experience.  Just be careful of the cords as the last thing you want to do is rip the audio plugs out while trying not to get knocked to the canvas.

 

This one is VR. Just Not PSVR

HAVER (Hyper Arena VR)

Developer: Hyperbook Studio

Platform: Steam

Release Date: TBD

Tron… It’s Tron and it is just as zany and wacky as one would think a game that ostensibly looks and feels like playing in the first Tron movie.  Our team really enjoyed the dynamic movement and the speed that you could play at once you are used to the environment and controls. I mean really who does not want to hit their friend in the head by bouncing a laser-powered disk off the floor into their face.

Ubisoft Blows Trekkies Minds With Star Trek: Bridge Crew

Editor’s Note: This article was originally published on Pixelkin.org. Make sure to check them out when you get a chance!

Ubisoft has announced a multiplayer virtual reality game called Star Trek: Bridge Crew. Ubisoft was going to be a big part of the virtual reality gold rush. They are always an experimental publisher who is willing to take risks for the sake of big rewards. With that said, I think that a Star Trek licensed VR game might be the closest thing to a sure-fire win as you can get.

If you’ll forgive me making some assumptions; I think it is more than a strong possibility that the majority of early adopters of VR technology will be fans of the Star Trek universe of one level or another. Now, I’m not saying that all of them speak Klingon fluently, but I can imagine a lot of them have dreamt of being on a starship’s bridge. Star Trek: Bridge Crew is designed to give those fans exactly that opportunity.

The game requires multiple players to put on their VR headsets and take a station on the bridge of a starship while they complete missions. They can take up position at Engineering, Security, the Helm, or the Captain’s chair. Each station has different responsibilities and they will need to communicate and cooperate in order to succeed.

The story of the game is straightforward. Players will take on roles aboard the starship U.S.S. Aegis. They will be on a mission to explore a region of uncharted space known as “The Trench.” The goal is to find a new habitable home world for the Vulcan people whose planet has been destroyed. Unfortunately, this region is very near the Klingon Empire who is, as one might predict, less than enthusiastic about this decision. The players will need to chart the region and make smart decisions to complete their mission and make it out in one piece.

Anyone concerned that it might be tough to get three other people together to play this game can take heart though. The game can also be played in single player when you take on the role of captain and deliver orders to an NPC crew.

Microsoft showed off a demo for a new version of Minecraft designed for use with the Microsoft Hololense device during their 2015 E3 press event.

I am not certain how it works, but I spent the vast majority of the demo in slack jawed awe of the technology. It is a demonstration of an insane future that I wasn’t sure would ever happen.

The Hololense is a set of glasses that will let the user see projected images in the environment around them. The original technical demo involved the idea of being able to place a monitor on a wall. This allowed for a lots of neat viewing angles and some interesting communication options, but it didn’t really show us the gaming potential until E3.

The Minecraft demo shows an entire world being available for play using hand controls Tony Stark style on a coffee table. It was insane watching the world fly across the table while a god-like being, essentially, moved it around and called down lightning strikes!

We live in a very interesting future my friends. I can’t even imagine where it is going to go next!
