After last week’s influx of great new releases, it’s back to business as usual for PSVR this week. Don’t despair, though; there is one really big new launch for fans of giant mech battlers.
Apocalypse Rider, from Naked Monkey
Price: $4.99 (US only)
We hadn’t heard of Apocalypse Rider before today but it’s trailer proudly called it a “sick VR game without motion sickness” and who are we to judge? You speed down a highway on a motorbike, dodging traffic as you overtake with reckless disregard for your safety and that of others. It’s is just me or is this game promoting bad driving?
Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner – MARS, from Konami
The ZoE series has always been something of a cult classic, which makes this latest port of the second game a bit of a treat for VR fans. The entire thing can be played inside a VR headset for the first time, letting you command super-cool space mech, Jehuty in a full campaign that will pit you against other super-cool space mechs. The VR conversion isn’t perfect, but it’s definitely something long-time fans will want to check out.
