Someone Built An Extremely Accurate Recreation Of Their Apartment In VR

Someone Built An Extremely Accurate Recreation Of Their Apartment In VR

If you have played VR and bumped into your couch while in the middle of a zombie wasteland, you know how weird that feels. It breaks your brain and momentarily shatters the illusion. But what if every object in VR matched a real-world object and you could basically “feel” the game you were playing? That’s what someone has created and it looks wild.

That Damn Witcher Song Is Now Playable In Beat Saber

That Damn Witcher Song Is Now Playable In Beat Saber

“Toss A Coin To Your Witcher,” the obnoxiously catchy song from Netflix’s The Witcher series, is everywhere. It’s in our heads . It has permeated Twitter. It’s being remixed over and over again . Now, thanks to an enterprising player of hit virtual reality rhythm game Beat Saber, fans can beat the song to death with glowing swords.

Beat Saber player Holair uploaded a custom map for “Toss A...

Someone Spent 24 Hours In VR The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time

Someone Spent 24 Hours In VR The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time

YouTuber SwankyBox is a huge fan of The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time, the classic N64 RPG. As a kid he would play it for hours and hours and hours, exploring every inch of the world and also just chilling out and watching the sunset. So he recently decided to experience Ocarina Of Time in a brand new way, using VR. And he was going to do it for 24 hours straight, even sleeping and eating...

It Sucks That Half-Life: Alyx Is VR Only, But I'm Still Excited For More Half-Life

It Sucks That Half-Life: Alyx Is VR Only, But I'm Still Excited For More Half-Life

Half-Life 2 is probably my favorite game of all time, with my other option being Half-Life 1. I wanted to start with that sentence because I think it really helps explain my love for the Half-Life franchise. And as a lifelong, hardcore, super Half-Life fan I’m excited to play Half-Life: Alyx, even if it means I have to borrow a VR headset and put up with weird VR issues.

The Half-Life games...

Half-Life: Alyx, you might be dismayed to learn, is definitely not Half-Life 3. But it is a new “full-length” Half-Life game, Valve said today, and it’ll be out in March.

In a press release, Valve said the game—first announced earlier this week to surprise, confusion, and memes from...

It is 2019. Valve just announced a new Half-Life game . All bets are off now. Quit your job. Buy a lottery ticket. Fail to win the lottery. Buy several more lottery tickets. Fail again. Give up. Sell your car so you can make rent. Go online. Find out that the new Half-Life is a VR game. Compose an irate tweet about how you can’t afford it. Live your dreams.

Respawn Is Reviving Medal Of Honor… As An Oculus VR Exclusive

Respawn Is Reviving Medal Of Honor… As An Oculus VR Exclusive

Electronic Arts’ Medal Of Honor series of military first-person shooters is back in action, although not in the way you might expect: It’s being reborn as a virtual reality game for the Oculus Rift, courtesy of Apex Legends and Titanfall developer Respawn, coming in 2020.

Respawn and Oculus announced that they were working on a “triple-A VR” game together two years ago. Shortly after that...

No Man's Sky's Beyond Update Fulfills The Childhood Dream Of Virtual Reality

No Man's Sky's Beyond Update Fulfills The Childhood Dream Of Virtual Reality

You look left and see a giant alien behemoth. You look right and see your spaceship. And then you re-adjust your virtual reality helmet to account for all the head turning you just did. That’s the dream, right? At least that’s what Kirk assured me and Jason on this week’s episode of Kotaku Splitscreen when he recounted No Man’s Sky’s latest VR improvements.

First up, we talk about what we’ve...

Okay, Seriously, Maybe VR Gaming Is About To Have Its Big Moment

Okay, Seriously, Maybe VR Gaming Is About To Have Its Big Moment

I keep thinking about a video game I played in Los Angeles a month ago that’s what you’d get if the renowned covert ops Splinter Cell series required your character to always be in a kayak.

The game is called Phantom: Covert Ops, and it’s pretty cool. The catch is that it’s all in VR.

Please, don’t go away. Keep reading! I’ve even got an interview to share with you involving the guy overseeing...

Playing VR Alone Is Terrifying

Playing VR Alone Is Terrifying

I recently bought Beat Saber for PSVR and have been playing it with my girlfriend. It’s fun and is a great way to get up and move around more. But when she is out of the house, I still sometimes want to play VR. But I’ve tried playing Beat Saber and other VR games alone and I always end up nervous, paranoid and scared.

I’m already not the perfect person for VR. I don’t have motion sickness or...

The other day, a talking robot ball was taunting me, saying I couldn’t raise my arms and pump my fists like him. This, he proclaimed, was my ultimate failing, and I would forever marinate in my shame. I raised my own physical hand and slowly unfurled my real-life middle finger. My in-game finger shot up in...

The Oculus Quest Is How Virtual Reality Should Work

The Oculus Quest Is How Virtual Reality Should Work

Within 15 minutes of opening the package containing the Oculus Quest, Facebook’s new standalone virtual reality headset, I was playing a game. I wasn’t playing some watered-down mobile phone app or preinstalled demo, but a full-featured, console-quality VR game. This is great.

The Quest is Oculus’ first all-in-one gaming headset. It requires no PC connection, unlike the original Oculus Rift...

New Game From Rick & Morty's Co-Creator Isn't As Funny As I Hoped

New Game From Rick & Morty's Co-Creator Isn't As Funny As I Hoped

Trover Saves the Universe is my favorite sort of virtual reality game. It’s bright, colorful and weird. It stars me, as a silent seated presence, guiding titular hero Trover in third-person. It can even be played without a virtual reality headset. These are features I like. I also like the crass, stammering humor of Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland. Just not so much of it at once.

For a few seconds, Blood & Truth, the most-hyped game to hit the PlayStation 4’s virtual reality headset since its October 2016 launch, is as thrilling a VR experience as one could hope for.

You’re in the headset holding PlayStation Move controllers as the game’s graphics wrap around you. You’re a soldier back in his...

Smash Ultimate In VR Was A Mistake

Smash Ultimate In VR Was A Mistake

In the “Thanks, I hate it” category, Nintendo gave us Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in virtual reality last night. Nobody asked for this, and yet here we are—swiveling our heads left and right and withstanding gut-sinking nausea just to land a couple aerials on a computer-player Peach.

Earlier this year, Nintendo introduced a VR kit for the Switch. It’s a cardboard headset with two lenses, and in...

Beat Saber is a virtual reality rhythm game where you chop red and blue blocks with correspondingly colored lightsabers. It requires a lot of coordination and precise movements. Or you could do what one player did and just strap your VR controllers to a handheld cake mixer.

Assassin's Creed VR 'Escape Room' Is More Spectacle Than Puzzle

Assassin's Creed VR 'Escape Room' Is More Spectacle Than Puzzle

Ubisoft has a new “VR escape room” set in the world of Assassin’s Creed that you can play at over 100 different locations around the world. It’s fun, but despite its stated ties to “escape rooms,” Beyond Medusa’s Gate is more of an hourlong VR action game than a cooperative brain teaser.

The first of Ubisoft’s VR escape games was called Escape The Lost Pyramid, which tied in with Assassin’s...
