Hands-on: PlayStation VR

I was invited today to check out Sony’s Virtual Reality headset. This was not at E3 and so the demos I played aren’t any E3 demos and are a bit older. With the HTC Vive and The Oculus Rift finally on the market, VR is now an official commercial product. People can actually own a VR headset if they own a relatively high-end PC. But for those of us who don’t own a PC and want to experience VR will have to wait until Sony releases their VR headset. In the meantime, I got to check out The Deep, The Heist, Battlezone and Until Dawn Rush of Blood.

So did Playstation VR convince me or after finally using the headset, do I think it’s just a gimmick?

Impressions: Mirror’s Edge Catalyst Closed Beta

When you say “Game Beta”, you immediately think “Multiplayer Beta” because… That’s what Betas are for right? To test the Multiplayer, the servers, getting rid of some possible glitches, exploits and bugs, etc…

So why does a game that is singleplayer exclusive have a Beta? I asked myself that question while I played Dark Souls 3 during the time that it took for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst to download. Now the boss-man had asked for to make an impressions vid, so I complied. I set up my Elgato and waited for the game to install.

Impressions: Gears of War 4 Beta

The Gears of War Beta will officially kick off in a couple of days but we got the chance to test it already. It’s been a while since we’ve entered the universe of Gears of War and this fourth episode is destined to set the cover-based third-person shooter back on the map. Gears 4 will house some innovations but this beta experience felt extremely familiar, combining the gorgeous graphics of the Ultimate Edition with the solid controls of Gears of War 3.

Impressions: Killer Instinct Season 3

The newest season of Killer Instinct has officially started and this time, it’s a doozy. Season three of Killer Instinct has kicked off with four new characters, three new stages and a complete graphical overhaul, which makes Season 3 the most ambitious. And while the season only just started I’m going to take a look at what’s here.

Impressions: Doom Beta

Nowadays we have a wide variety of FPS games from run-and-gun to team-based tactics and even military simulators with high realism involved. But today we are looking at a reboot of a game that can be put on a list of shooters that gave birth to the FPS genre. I’m off course talking about Doom! Pitting you up against demons and hellfire with a wide diversity of blood splattering weapons we take a look at what ID Software is trying to do with an old school shooter brought back from the depths of hell itself.

Special: F.A.C.T.S. 2016

Last weekend was Belgium’s biggest “geek” convention. And you know where there’s “geek” stuff there undoubtedly are video games. The organizers were so kind enough to invite us to the biggest convention of the year. I’m going to take the time to talk a bit about what we did and see at the convention center.

Impressions: Miitomo

Miitomo, the first mobile Nintendo app released yesterday and is already a huge success with over 3 million users worldwide. Nintendo is known for popular series like Super Mario and ‘The Legend of Zelda’ but Miitomo is something completely different. It’s a social application where you’ll get to know your friends a little better. I’ve been playing it for a day now and tell you what’s it all about.
