Kids React – E3 2018 Beat Saber Trailer

E3 2018 is over and the EFG Staff has gone out of our way to share OUR thoughts. But, we wanted to reach out to some kids and see their thoughts!

 

Evan – 12 years old

I can’t get as hyped for it as I want, because we don’t have PSVR. But, maybe if they’ll put it out on Mobile VR or Xbox Kinect it would be awesome. The game looks like a lot of fun and the music in the trailer was great.

 

Jacob – 9 years old

Beat Saber look like a fun game, but the only problem is that it looks really hard. You would have to be really good at it to play it I think.

 

Jeremiah – 9 years old

Whoa! What?!? That’s so cool! I wish we had VR.

 

Claire – 9 years old (From The Family Gamers!)

I think it’s really really cool because its like you’re a Jedi but you’re playing Amplitude.

 

Asher – 7 years old (From The Family Gamers!)

It’s like you’re a Jedi and a Sith in one person so they’re just using red and blue.

 

Brynne – 8 years old

I really liked it because you had swords that you could move around and you had to match it up with the exact block colors. I think it’s really cool. Almost like a puzzle. And I’m really, really, really mad that it can’t go on Xbox, but it looked amazing. So I guess my parents will have to get me a PlayStation.

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.
