DOOM VFR review: Hell of a time

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. Last year’s DOOM reboot was a goddamn incredible game. id Software’s re-imagining of the property embraced the classic’s old school feel, threw in some cool modern twists, and set it all to the most rockin’ soundtrack ever seen in a game. It was easily the best single player shooter of 2016. And now we have DOOM VFR, t...[Read More]

Watch me cringing playing Resident Evil 7 in VR

I suppose it was always going to come to this. Resident Evil 7 is out and fully playable in Playstation VR, and my fellow editor Charlie responded to my suggestion of recording him playing it using the headset with a resounding “NOPE”, so it would be up to me to brave the horrors of the Baker mansion in a whole new level of immersion. I had some thoughts on the PSVR experience in my re...[Read More]

Driveclub VR review: not your average Sunday drive

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. Let me get something out of the way here first: I don’t really like racing games. Or at least ones that are considered “realistic” racing games. I’ve certainly enjoyed racing titles in the past, particularly Burnout Paradise on the Playstation 3, but it’s one of those games where all the cars have jet b...[Read More]

Batman Arkham VR review: more like the Dark RIGHT

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. There are two kinds of people in this world: people’s whose life-long dream is to be Batman and people who are filthy liars and cannot be trusted. I’m not going to get too bogged down in a discussion as to why Batman is the best superhero character there is, because you either already agree with me or you never will and you’ll continue on with your wro...[Read More]

The American Dream is a VR game about guns, but not killing – PAX Aus 2016

VR games are everywhere at PAX Aus this year. Now that the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Playstation VR are all out and in people’s homes, every indie developer and their dogs are keen to show off what they have in store for these shiny new toys. But out of all the VR games on display on the PAX Rising indie floor, The American Dream by Melbourne-based studio Samurai Punk immediately grabbed my ...[Read More]

Playstation VR review: A flawed triumph

If you’d told me 10 years ago that I’d be playing around with something like Playstation VR in my own living room, I would have laughed at you before going back to dancing to Fergalicious. But here we are: I, a regular person of modest income, have a virtual reality set in my home. 17 year old me was an idiot. 2016 has seen virtual reality come into people’s homes, but until now ...[Read More]

PAX Australia will showcase VR with Omni Trackpads

VR has been all the buzz this year, with Oculus Rift releasing in March, HTC Vive with its room-scale tracking technology in April and Playstation VR dropping yesterday. We’ve got our hands on one of the PSVR sets here at LoadScreen and are in the process of reviewing it, but in the meantime you can see me having my little “OMG” moment before getting down to serious, objective re...[Read More]

From Software video teases Playstation VR project in 2017

While many people may associate developer From Software with the ruthlessly difficult Dark Souls franchise, along with Demon Souls and Bloodborne, they previously made a name for themselves with a variety of other classic games they made since the debut of the original Playstation. I mention this because an unlisted video from From Software’s YouTube channel was recently posted to Reddit tha...[Read More]

Playstation VR price confirmed, launching October 2016

  The Playstation VR event teased by Sony earlier this month took place this morning at the Game Developer’s Conference, and as expected they announced the pricing and release window of the much anticipated headset. As predicted, the unit will cost the same as the PS4 did at launch, AUD$549.95 (US$399). It is due to launch in October 2016. The $549.95 package includes the PSVR headest (...[Read More]

VR race heats up as Sony announces Playstation VR event

  Virtual Reality has been a hot topic in the first two months of 2016 as the commercial release of the technology draws ever nearer. First Oculus announced the price of the Rift when preorders went live in January, coming in at a whopping $AUD1104 including shipping (base price $US599). Then earlier this week, HTC revealed their Vive VR headset will cost a similar amount of $US799 ($AUD1110)...[Read More]

Oculus Rift costs more than $1k AUD

  This day has been a long time coming: the consumer model of the Oculus Rift is available to preorder. Since day one the questions on everyone’s mind has been when will we get it and what will it cost us? The answer to the first question is “from March 28” for those who secured their headsets when orders went live at around 3am AEST last night (they’re now saying May ...[Read More]

VR is amazing, but not the future of gaming (yet)

Yesterday, I wrote about how cage diving with a Great White Shark in VR was the best thing I did at PAX Australia. A few days before that, LoadScreen editor Charlie detailed how terrifyingly awesome it was to brave the deathtrap that is outer space in Earthlight. Suffice it to say, VR blew our minds. But as much as this technology impresses me, I just don’t think it will be the new way we ex...[Read More]
