    A heads up for those that don't know..

    Old skool shooter from Jeff Minter with some highly addictive gameplay & fantastic trance tunes.

    After T4K Iím waiting to make sure that 21:9 and >60hz work properly. Iím sure they will - I think Jeff has already demoed it on a 144hz screen - but I was really frustrated by the way that game was handled. Again, I realise that a lot wasnít really in their hands.

    This is a terrific game in VR and Iím hoping that a big wide screen will get a good amount of the effect without having to mess with the double hairdryer set that is the PS4 Pro and the PSVR box. Highly recommended to anyone who likes good games with good soundtracks (if you like the genre). On a side note, the soundtrack on Bandcamp actually includes a 72 minute continuous mix of all the tracks, great addition.

    Only Rift support, no vive? Thatís odd.

    T4K patch for PC came out today, seems to run properly at 120Hz now and they solved the scrunched text on ultrawide... seemingly by stretching it out. I don't have the energy to troubleshoot it at this point, to be honest.

    edit: if I set the screen resolution in the menu to a 16:9 one it seems to work. Long way from my actual resolution though as it maxes out at 1360x768. Working 120Hz update is nice though I guess!

    If its on Steam then surely it will support Steam VR?

    "Only on Oculus Store" I would be worried but probably just a listing error.

    On Twitter, Minter's been complaining about the Steam content management thingy interpreting "Oculus supported" as "Oculus required", so the issue may be related to that.

    But if you can play it in VR, make sure you do. It's a good Minter game on a TV or monitor, but completely mind-blowing in VR.

    Maybe itís a controller thing and the game needs sticks? The vive controllers have that trackpad thing.

    Another re-release. The original was better.
