    Also, I revisited Beat Saber last weekend and the downloaded songs don't work. Will have to look into this, because there seem to be some pretty cool tracks/fan levels. Most likely a recent update means that I have to reapply the mod fix.
    I believe there's some kinda Lone Echo 2 "trailer experience" that'll pop up on Oculus any time now, I'm holding out for that instead of watching the trailer in regular ol' monitor-o-vision. Super-eager for more Lone Echo!

    About Beat Saber songs, yeah the plugin breaks every time there's a new update released. It's usually fixed within a day, but you'll have to run the installer again.

    My wishlist for Lone Echo 2:
    - More exploration
    - More, and more interesting, puzzles (they should take a hint from the non-moon logic point&click adventure games)

    The first game was great, but the sequel could do with less hand-holding.

    I just checked out the VR version of Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, and from the 20 minutes I played I think I may well end up replaying the whole thing. IMO it doesn't suffer from the lower resolutions, as so much of the aesthetic is about lighting and hinting at things. The effect of the binaural sound is reinforced by the world being everywhere you turn your head rather than just on a screen in front of you. Scale also makes you feel more like you're with Senua, especially at the beginning when you're on the boat with her and she's basically your size. Finally, while it's not unusual in VR to have cinematic sequences on a rectangle floating in front of you, for me the effect in Hellblade is somewhat akin to Get Out's Sunken Place, disassociating the player from Senua when the rest of the time you're right there with her.

    I don't think VR will make anyone love Hellblade if they didn't already like what the game does, but it's absolutely worthwhile checking out the VR version if you already liked the game.



    Other, unrelated notes:
    - I checked out Moss and it's delightful.
    - GNOP is also very cool - if you're into quirky puzzlebox toys.
    - Oculus Home no longer opens when I enter VR. I wonder why that is.

    I just finished Moss! Yeah, delightful is a good word for it. The presentation is very nice, Quill is wonderfully animated, and there's a few really cool scenes throughout. As for the rest of it? Eh... servicable combat and puzzling, and the story isn't anything to write home about. It's also very short (I think it was less than 2 hours), and the finale is a set-piece heavy thing that borders on being more annoying than awesome. I don't know, it's fine. Just fine.

    Also finished Creed on the Normal difficulty today, and I'm not sure I'm gonna bother with Hard. It has a bunch of cool gameplay ideas, but the real meat and potatoes of it (the boxing, that is) isn't partifularly fun. The career(story mode) is also a very slight affair, and the whole thing is oddly paced. It all kinda builds up to the Ricky Conlan fight, which is the most cinematic and memorable fight of the game, but after that it doesn't end. Instead there's one more fight, and then it just kinda ends. Eh. Ok.

    I wouldn't recommend anyone pay full price for either of these. Get em in a sale if you're interested. Or don't.

    Picked up Sairento this morning. Looking forward to finally seeing what all the fuzz is about.

    Also been playing a bit of In Death since it just came out of EA. I like this game quite a bit, despite it's faults. It's a very novel and fun VR FPS, but the procedural levels and enemy placement means the balancing is kinda all over the place, and very often it ends up feeling either too easy or too difficult. At the same time that randomness and never knowing what's around the next corner means you'll have to explore with caution, which I like.

    Quick P.S. concerning my Hellblade post above: the bit I played this morning made me think that something like Dark Souls - or, more precisely, not something *like* but indeed Dark Souls - would be great in VR. Anything where the world itself has such a strong sense of presence comes to life even more in VR, and getting more of a sense of scale from the opponents would be wonderful. Chronos did something akin to this, but its world lacked the detail and sense of history that From Software's creations have.

    I recon I'll give Hellblade VR a miss, I have feeling it'd be far too queasy for me.

    Just spotted this wonderful vid and figured I had to share:


    When I've played Keep Talking with friends we've never made it past the second bomb, but these guys are clearly pros.

    Do you get these long-lasting bouts of queasiness? Since Hellblade VR is included in the regular game, it's easy enough to quickly check it out (and the title credits will probably give you a good sense of whether it'd affect you), but not if it means you feeling like throwing up for the rest of the day.
