Uh… still playing Resident Evil 7? Probably not; it’s not exactly the longest game ever. However, you might want to consider this week for that Madhouse difficulty run through you’ve been considering or to jump into the first DLC if you haven’t picked that up yet. Once again there’s really not much worth talking about this week, and we’re starting to think you might want to settle in for the long haul. There’s still Psychoanuts to come this month but, beyond that, we have no idea when the flow of PlayStation VR (PSVR) releases is really going to pick up again.
If you missed last week, you can see those new releases here. Also, UploadVR has launched the ‘UploadVR PS VR Community’ on PlayStation 4! Join up, find other gamers to play with, and engage in discussions with them.

VR Ping Pong, from Reddoll
Your sole PSVR release this week is this simple little take on ping pong, which plays out pretty much exactly how you’d expect. Use your Move controllers to wield your paddle and take on retro-style AI opponents in an area fit for an 8-bit king. Along with tournaments against the computer you can take on several minigame challenges that have you playing against yourself, avoiding parts of the table, and fine-tuning your aim. The only problem? There’s no multiplayer to speak of right now.
Recommendation: We gave it 6/10. We’d have no problem recommending this likable game if it wasn’t for the lack of multiplayer. Without it, you’re stuck facing computer opponents in repetitive matches. It’s fun and it works well, but the missed opportunity here is just too much to rate it higher. We’re sure someone will offer a great ping pong VR game with multiplayer on PSVR at some point, and you should probably wait for that.
