    Been playing Arizona Sunshine recently. It may look and play like a shovelware FPS game from the PS2/Gamecube era, but it plays so well with the Aim controller* and there's something incredibly fun and satisfying about looking down a sight and popping zombie heads.

    *well the shooting does, opening car doors and drawers with the waggle controls is predictably crap

    There's an easy way to open doors and stuff, I can't remember what though. Holding a button down I think.

    There's an outside chance that I've imagined it.

    Seen a few results saying just taping the interact button will do it so fingers crossed you didn't imagine it.

    I bought Catch and Release yesterday. Not sure what to make of the hour I played apart from it was lovely to sit on a lake, chug a beer and try to catch some fish. How much strategy and therefore how much game there Iím not sure...

    Did you catch anything or just get drunk?

    I've read conflicting things about it. They need do do Sega bass fishing vr with the rod again. Just tone it all down a little so it's more relaxing.

    I need to play both it and VR in general to have a more solid opinion to be honest. Itís a really nice little environment to sit in, with a lake you can row around that offers a variety of settings. The game is definitely on the meditative end of things but thereís ever more tricky fish to catch, money to earn and fishing gear to upgrade etc. Tracking seems OK, though thereís a tiny bit of interference when reeling in, possibly because youíre rotating a move controller right next to the other one thatís acting as the rod. Dunno- need to play it more but Iím like a kid in a candy store at the moment trying new random shit out every 5 minutes.

    You're going through the "I MUST BUY EVERYTHING" stage the moment. You tried Wipeout yet? Also if you like Star Wars you've got to try the Battlefront X-Wing mission.

    I can't imagine ever feeling in a relaxed Zen like state with a PSVR gripping my face and that wire hanging down at the side.

    Haven't fired up mine for months but will get that London Heist sequel next month. Also hoping for proper VR support for Dreams but begining to think it won't happen.

    Most expensive Move controllers I've seen yet. Absolute chancing bastards.

    Wow! That's ridiculous. The cost of Moves has prevented me from buying back into PSVR a few times. I just can't bring myself to pay the going rate for them. The first time around, I bought Moves second hand about a month before PSVR launched and got them for around a tenner a piece. They worked perfectly. In my head that has set a "reasonable" price for the technology (given the age) and now the going rate just seems absurd. Not as absurd as that onbuy price though.

    Dear Lord. I had one knocking around from the PS3 days and managed to get a ďbargainĒ second hand one for £30 from eBay. That price really smarted, ridiculous.

    I have to hand in my gamer credentials and confess Iíve never liked the Wipeout games but hell yes- sitting in an X-Wing and going pew pew has probably been the highlight of the whole thing.

    I've never been the biggest fan of Wipeout either. Actually sitting in the cockpit and hurtling around the track yourself is something you need to experience though. It's also by far the best looking game on there.

    Wish they sold that on its own now.

    The full game is only a fiver at the moment on PSN I think.

    Cool, will keep an eye out for Wipeout then. I have a new plan which is to sit and refresh psprices.com on the page of a game I want and not buy it until itís in one of the troughs, rather than peaks.
    I reckon Iíll last until brunch.

    It's great. Though it's actually quite a workout for your neck...

    Just bought it to see if can get back into some VR stuff. Is there no way to turn all the shitty comfort settings off?

    I bought Fisherman's Tale as needed something to get me back into VR again. Tracking is woeful, but it's a great premise and pretty enjoyable so far! It's not the longest but for £8 I'd say it's worth it

    Eagle Flight is a bit of a surprise. Was expecting a "titting about" game but there's actually a very good racing game in there as well. Looks great too. Surprised it doesn't get more of a mention.

    Bought and played Red Matter after Ian Higton included in his list of great psvr games. Absolutely loved it and finished it in one sitting. Other than one puzzle it's all pretty easy but the interaction with the world is fantastic and up there with I expect you to die, everything feels real.

    If you're into sci-fi and puzzles you should definitely get it.

    This is my most wanted game at the moment. Glad to hear another person thinks it's good. I love sci-fi, puzzles, space and cold war Soviet stuff. But I don't love the price of Move controllers at the moment.

    How long would you say the campaign is and is there much/any replay value?

    I've been on about it all the time!
    (I know nobody listens to me, thanks.)

    Also, did you figure out how to switch comfort settings, I can't remember if there were any.

    @mothercruncher 3 hours (maybe 4 if you're bad at puzzles or refuse to cheat like I did for that one difficult one). Not much replay value, other than finding a handful (5 I think) hidden collectable type things. I'm not going to bother doing them though as the slowish gameplay works well for a first playthrough to build the immersion, but would get frustrating going through it again.

    🦅 flight is not my favourite game. I know a lot of people on here like it.
