NEED A GREAT VR GAME? GET ‘BEAT SABER’!

While I don’t own a VR-set, I’ve seen people on some random online places asking for advice of what to get for their first PSVR, Oculus, HTC Vive and so on.

A couple of months ago, I’ve tried a VR game for the first time and that game was ‘Beat Saber’.

Before I continue, let me tell you this: I have no prior VR gaming experience, and the ONLY prior VR experience was this.

Anyways, at this event, me and a bunch of other people, tried the game. If you remember the ‘Guitar Hero’-games, you may know the mechanics. You hold two controllers that serve as ‘sabers’, and you have to time your hits to the right pace AND from the right angle. It was fun.

‘Beat Saber’ is described as “a virtual reality fitness/rhythm game” and you’ll be amazed!

And seeing the YouTube videos, it seems like it got a big and growing community with lots of new content available for everyone.

Now, it takes time to master the skills but it’s fun and engaging. It should fit the whole family. You’ll face great challenge even after hundreds or thousands of played hours with up to five levels of difficulty, starting from Easy all the way to Expert+.

The game supports most virtual reality headsets, such as PlayStation VR, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and Oculus Quest.

Investing in a VR-set or just got one? Get this, you should. It’s an immersive experience that cannot be described.

[GAMING] ‘HALF LIFE: ALYX’ ANNOUNCED

Half Life: Alyx is the next big thing from Valve. Fans have been longing for Half Life 3 for more than a decade and rumors stating that Valve was about to release a triple A title (which would be a new Half Life) earlier this year – in May – along with the launch of their Index VR Kit – were then put to test.

A couple of days ago a new Half Life game was indeed announced. It’s not HL3.

Half Life: Alyx is a VR title compatible with all PC- based VR- sets and takes place between Half-Life and Half-Life 2 during the invasion of The Combine.

Players will controll Alyx Vance, seen in Half-Life 2 where she was the closest ally to Gordon Freeman.

You’ll need at least a GeForce GTX 1060 and of course a VR-set to be able to play. It’s free for Valve’s Index VR owners and it’s intended to launch on Steam March 20, 2020.
