WRUP: What VR Games Are You Playing? – 08/24/18

by David Jagneaux • August 24th, 2018

What Are You Playing (WRUP) is a weekly discussion series in which we talk about the VR games and apps that have our attention currently and ask you what you’ve been playing this week and intend to play over the weekend. Join into the discussion in the comments down below! Pictured up above is Be The Hero.

David Jagneaux – Games Editor

This week I spent a good bit of time creeping my way through The Exorcist VR (review is now live, as well as Part 1 and Part 2 of my livestream playthrough) but have also dove into the puzzling world of Twilight Path, a new game on the way from the creators of Form, and I published a hands-on of Transference from Ubisoft. This weekend I’ll probably mostly spend time with the Oculus Go on some simple mobile titles as well as dip my toe into Torn while Jamie focuses on that review. But next week is all about Firewall Zero Hour. My PS Aim is locked and loaded.

“I’ve got an iMac and eGPU with an NVIDIA 1080 I want to use for VR under the most ridiculous arrangement possible — using Boot Camp on the iMac to run Windows with the eGPU so that my underpowered Mac can run a Rift or Vive and all of my favorite games. My hope is to use this setup to get a player two into my VR games from time to time, or to have a backup if my main machine goes down. I’ve seen commenters asking if this same kind of USB-C connected hardware might work with a PC to connect the Vive Wireless Adapter to a laptop. It will likely be a while before I find answers to whether any of this workable. Nonetheless, I’m going keep looking into what I can find out in this area because USB-C may separately become a core part next generation VR headsets with the VirtualLink connector supported by the latest RTX 20 Series of NVIDIA cards.

Also, I can’t stop playing Beat Saber.” – Ian Hamilton

Jamie Feltham – News Editor

Currently, Jamie is knee-deep in the mind-bending world of Torn, which he is playing for review. You can expect to see that on the site late Monday night just before Firewall Zero Hour launches on Tuesday. That will likely be most of his weekend play time as well, but next week he’ll be diving into Bow to Blood and playing some multiplayer matches with me in Firewall. This week he posted hands-on previews from Gamescom of Telefrag, Crazy Machine VR, A Fisherman’s Tale, and HoloBeat.

Tal Blevins – Editor-in-Chief

Tal is off in Germany still after Gamescom on business and won’t be back for a while. However, while at the event, he did go hands-on with The Wizards’ PSVR port and Arizona Sunshine’s location-based wireless arcade adaptation. In the coming weeks he’ll be joining us on the frontlines in Firewall Zero Hour, so keep an eye for his appearances on streams and gameplay videos.

What about you? Are there any specific games you’re in the middle of right now that you’re hoping to finish soon? Are you returning to some older favorites? And do you plan on getting Firewall Zero Hour on PSVR?
