Robo Recall

Robo Recall is a very active game where you defend the city from rampaging robots.

I played this for about half an hour and it sure does give you a workout! There’s lots of ducking and shooting and action continuously coming at you! Shoot the robots and if they fly up into the sky you can keep shooting the same one for combo bonuses.

Minecraft VR

Lots of fun or WHAT? Minecraft VR for Oculus Rift!

So I installed Minecraft VR on my Oculus Rift and created a New World. I bought Minecraft maybe 7 years ago but do not appear to be able to claim a free copy for Windows 10 (aka VR) to link to my Xbox Live account. The only way to play Minecraft VR is if you have an Xbox Live account. You cannot sign in with your Mojang account, so my usual Username and skin, etc is not available. That’s quite annoying.

Subnautica VR

Amazing. Simply amazing! 

I spent several hours recently trying to find a survival-type game with crafting and exploration. Now, there’s tons of horror-survival type VR games with cannibals, zombies and monsters. However, I’m looking for something a bit closer to Minecraft… without actually being Minecraft.

My search ended up on Subnautica by Unknown Worlds. I already had this on my Steam Wishlist, so I read a few opinions on Reddit (I know.. bad idea.. usually!) and watched some videos and it seemed like exactly the kind of game I was searching for.

A Beginner’s frustration with Elite:Dangerous

I recently started getting into Elite:Dangerous. TL;DR: Yes, it’s a great game but incredibly complex and confusing for beginners.

If you want to play E:D in VR my first recommendation is do not play in VR until you’ve had several days experience playing E:D on your monitor. You will spend a lot of time Googling and watching YouTube videos.  I’m in an Oculus Facebook group and people were talking about how E:D was on sale at 76% off the normal price. One person quipped “I will not buy this as the amount of time you have to spend watching YouTube vidoes goes into the hours and that’s not fun”. I thought he was just whinging, but it has a ring of truth to it.
