Play Fair NY 2017 Minecraft VR

This past weekend, Play Fair NY 2017 invaded the Jacob Javits Center in midtown Manhattan. The ultra kid-friendly environment is a welcome to parents who felt overwhelmed during NYCC in October. Here there were large play areas for kids, toy and game demonstrations, an activity stage, and more, as well as a place to check out Minecraft VR.

Check out some of the photos from the event here below.

Loading Human

A trailer for another upcoming virtual reality game has been released titled Loading Human.

The game is an episodic sci-fi adventure game set in the 22nd century, and it is being developed for both PlayStation VR and Oculus Rift, which is a good thing considering some of the VR games we’ve seen have been exclusive to only one of the various headsets on the way—not a good sign for those who are excited about the technology but don’t have the means to buy a pile of VR headsets so they can play them all.

You can read more about Loading Human and check out the trailer below.

Crytek's The Climb

Motion gaming was all set to be the next big thing a while back. But instead of getting the kinds of games we thought we were going to get, most of what we got was, well…crap, to put it bluntly, and it never took off like it was supposed to.

Now the NEXT big thing fast approaches: virtual reality! For years we’ve been seeing cool tech demos and videos of YouTube of people enjoying VR such as the Oculus Rift in various ways, but soon we’ll be seeing it go mainstream, with games developed solely for VR play. One such title is called The Climb, and it comes from developer Crytek, makers of the original Far Cry, the Crysis series, Ryse: Son of Rome, and Warface.

You can read more about the game and watch the first trailer below.

Grandmother Using Oculus Rift

When talking about the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, it’s usually related to video games and how much more awesome many of them will be when using it. But the thing about finally perfecting the virtual reality we’ve seen depicted so many times over the years in movies and elsewhere is that it could mean so much more than just entertainment. That’s something we’re reminded of in this very special video.

Knowing her grandmother was dying of cancer and was unable to move around much let alone walk outside and visit some of the places she wanted to, Priscilla contacted Oculus, who sent her a headset so her grandmother could do and see some of the things she was unable to do herself anymore.

You can see a video of her moving experience and reaction below, which sadly took place about four weeks before she passed away.
