UploadVR’s E3 VR showcase

The hour long showcase from UploadVR, a media site had a couple of surprises and new releases for PlayStation VR, Oculus Quest, and gaming-PC platforms. Here are a few highlights from the event. Meat Fortress This update to the Early Access VR gun sim Hot Dogs, Horseshoes & Hand Grenades developed with the approval from Valve, with obvious reasons, is a rather meaty homage to the ever popular FPS Team Fortress 2. It replaces the comical characters with hot dogs clad loaded out with the original TF2 arsenal. It has multiple configurable challenges and has three different “meaty modes of mayhem.” Owing just more than an anagram-y name to the orignal TF2, this meat themed shooter will arrive on VR platforms on June 28. The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets Crafted as an interactive story-te...

Everspace – Review

Space exploration with procedurally generated environment alongside space combat and crafting, Everspace sounds a lot like No Man’s Sky but is so vastly different. It is a rouge-lite game with stunning visuals, great control and intense combat this is one of the most fun Space Explorations games I’ve played. And to top it all off, it even has a VR mode so you can immerse yourself even more and enjoy the gorgeous visuals. So let’s get right to the core of the game then. The game has just one mode which also features a story that is told through dialogue accompanied with image stills. You get these story bits everytime you get to a new Sector but that felt secondary to me because of how much fun the game was otherwise. You spawn into an area of the sector where then you mus...

I mean, it’s like this indefini...

The Martian VR Experience Coming To PSVR and HTC Vive

Virtual Reality is the order of the day, and with VR headsets becoming widely available (and popular), we might get to see a lot in the VR department apart from games.

Roundup September 2016: Gamer Rebellion, a Road Trip And a Store Opening

September has been a hectic month, with an average of 1.25 events each week( haha, yeah I did the math). Events was pretty much the overarching theme for the month really. If there was one thing that defined the month it would have to be Gamer Rebellion. For those who didn’t hear about it or have heard about it and don’t quite know what it is, Gamer Rebellion is an initiative that we started wherein we went from  college to college showcasing some of the best gaming hardware in the market right now. It all started with the launch of the RX 480 in India that we hosted in Radisson, Blu Dwar...

Virtual Reality: The War For Exclusives

Tech giants are spending more and more on securing exclusive content for their VR technologies, with Oculus catching a lot of heat for the Rift. But in an interview with TechCrunch during the E3 conference, Oculus co-founders Palmer Luckey and Nate Mitchell quickly pointed out that Sony is following a similar approach for the upcoming PS VR headset. “You see Sony investing in their content the same way,” they said. “They want to make things that take advantage of their features that they have in the best way possible.” They’re not wrong. It makes sense for these companies to make sure that their platforms have the edge over the others. According to Luckey, this is how the VR industry will move forward for the time being.
