  • 5 VR PC Games Not To Be Missed

    Virtual Reality technology has allowed us to immerse ourselves within a game, and delivers a whole new out of this world experience to gamers everywhere. It has blown our minds with the exciting future possibilities it could bring us. For now, let's take a look at some of the brilliant PC games that are available already:

    1. LA Noire: The VR Case Files

    Everything from the original game has been re-thought and transformed, new dimensions have been added like how you interact with items throughout the game. Also, the storyline has been updated to really immerse you into the virtual reality gaming experience.

    The VR Case Files improves gunplay and driving aspects with advanced virtual reality controls.  Rather than tapping away on your keyboard, you lean, shoot and reload using the HTC Vive controllers - it feels invigorating!

    With a retail price of £24.99, purchasing the game will be something you won't regret, even if you do accidentally punch yourself in the face.

    2. SkyRim VR

    Skyrim is one of the most enjoyable VR games to be immersed in. The game feels fresh, new and wondrous again in VR. While it's not as interactive as other games that have been built specifically for VR, it's still great fun to swing around swords and axes.

    It provides a new player experience to embark on a full-length open world journey. Ultimately, the goal is to defeat Alduin (the world-eating dragon), but you can equally spend your time exploring and completing side missions.

    Its retail price is £39.99, which is on the more expensive side compared to others but the game has been given extremely positive reviews, guaranteeing you won't be disappointed.

    3. The Climb

    An excellent example of how VR can be used to effectively translate real-world experiences. In the game players scale a series of precarious rock faces, using your virtual hands (VR controllers).

    Gameplay reflects actual climbing experiences, so chart your way to the top carefully and use chalk to retain grip throughout. Throughout the game the surroundings are beautiful which makes it (almost) worthwhile maintaining and enduring the sense of peril. Just whatever you do, don't look down!

    The Climb is unfortunately exclusive to the Oculus Rift, meaning many may never get to experience it which is a shame. It's priced at around £30.

    4. Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality

    This VR game is one of the more relaxed VR games. It allows you to experience several of the iconic characters in Rick and Morty show. You can escape and explore the bizarre worlds, but most importantly you can probe, prod and throw things. You play the game as a clone of young Morty, so you may get yelled at along the way by Rick.

    It may be more cartoony than the other VR games on this list, but it's one of the more convincing VR experience as it's enjoyable and interactive. The real fun is experimenting with the sci-fi toys and tools in Rick's garage.

    This game is available to buy from around £22.99 so if you are looking for Sunday afternoon game then why not try Virtual Rick-ality?

    5. Robo Recall

    Robo Recall is an action-packed gallery shooter. In the midst of a robot uprising, your aim is to track down and take down rogue robots with a variety of weapons. Not only can you blast away using a variety of guns available, but you can pretty much pick up anything you see and use it as a weapon or shield.

    The action game is completely over the top, but a lot of fun - whether you're plucking bullets out of the air and chucking them back at your enemies or ripping limbs of robots to use as weapons. If you want to survive ahead of challenges, you must stay focused!

    Robo Recall is designed for use with Oculus Touch controllers, and is FREE if you purchase them. Otherwise priced at around £23, and only available to use with the Oculus Rift.

  • Game Spotlight: Shadow of War

    One Update to Rule them all

    When Shadow of War launched, it was a rather rocky start for the game due to the controversies surrounding it. The industry blight of microtransactions being the main one. At launch, the idea was that they were there if you wanted them, but you didn’t need to use them to complete the game.

    The Shadow Wars told a different story, the final act of the game was a grind fest. Upon reaching this point most players quickly realised that they were under levelled and their army severely underpowered when faced with the foes they were tasked with defeating. It felt as though that portion of the game had been shoehorned in to give the MTX a reason to be there. Buying the loot boxes didn’t give you an easy route to the end game as the items received from them would always be equal or just below the players level. Many players simply didn’t have the time or money to complete the final act so simply left it alone and missed out on the true ending for the game.

    A new Dawn?

    WB and Monolith have listened to the player feedback and with the latest update, the game finally feels like it should have done upon release. MTX has now been removed from the game altogether and the final chapter has been changed to suit this. With narration from NPC’s and a shorter slog, it feels more in line with the rest of the game. New rewards also await anybody that has yet to complete it and will be available for use for any players that have already finished the game.

    The update also brings a host of quality of life changes that aid the removal of the MTX, as well as help the game to feel more complete. The changes include a raised level cap for the player up to 80 and foes up to 85. Also, there are new prestige skills which can be levelled as well after Act III. The ability to spend the in-game currency Mirian to raise the level of gear to match Talion as long as you have completed the gear challenges before doing so. And two new skins; Celebrimbor and Dark Eltariel.

    For a full list of all changes that the update brings click here.

    With so much focus on MTX in the industry removing them was a logical step for Shadow of War to take. After playing the original base game some fans feel that it is too little too late as the game has already been tarnished by its rocky start. Even if it doesn’t bring everybody back to playing the game it may well serve to bring new players to the table now that the MTX has disappeared. Other companies would do well to take a leaf out of this book as it may yet be possible to save the industry from intrusive MTX if they listen to their players.

    Let us know your thoughts on Shadow of War and Microtransactions in gaming below.

    We played Shadow of War upon release using the HST Draco i5 8400 1050Ti Gaming PC and we have started our journey again to fully benefit from the latest update using our HST Enso Ryzen 5 1400 Quad Core 1060 Gaming PC.

  • Game Spotlight: Warframe - The best free-to-play game?

    F2P never looked so good!!

    Free to play is a term that usually goes hand in hand with Pay to Win. Warframe changed that. Digital Extremes released the game back in 2013 and it was nothing special. A shooter that offered a limited pool of activities and customisation.

    How times have changed, DE updates the game on a very regular basis adding new content all free of charge. There are currently over 50 Warframes and 100 weapons to choose from, with a lot of content to cover trying out a new frame or weapon never gets old.

    Space Ninja’s

    The opening introduces you to the Tenno and their frames, after being awakened from a cryosleep they are tasked with bringing peace and balance back to the solar system.

    You have a choice of 3 frames to start with, Mag, Volt, and Excalibur. All have different abilities and uses. No two frames ever feel the same. The one thing that all frames share is insane agility, and power. The movement systems in the game can feel overwhelming to a new player but once you have the basics down it quickly becomes one of Warframes best features. Combining slides, bullet jumps and rolls to traverse the environment never gets old. It gives you the freedom to fly over a chasm and clear all enemies in a single leap or dash around them cutting them down with ease.

    The abilities and power that each frame possess gives you a sense of invincibility when facing single enemies and leave you feeling pretty good when against a group. Take Excalibur, the original Frame, with some crowd control and a devastating ultimate standing toe to toe when outnumbered can feel daunting but the battle quickly turns to your favour. Trinity, on the other hand, works best when used in a group, due to the abilities that buff and heal teammates. Enemies wither against you whilst your team gets stronger.


    When you start your journey as a Tenno you make your way through the star chart visiting all the planets within the solar system. There are 14 different mission types that you can encounter when completing the chart.

    Each has their own objectives and feel, exterminate tasks you with destroying X number of enemies to break their ranks before extraction whereas Spy tasks you with retrieving data from 3 consoles without alerting the enemy faction to your presence. Each map is based on the enemy faction and takes inspiration from them, so they feel unique to each area.

    As you play through the missions leveling your frame and weapons your power grows, struggle to complete a mission don’t worry try something else and come back stronger and better equipped to deal with the challenges before you.

    The Grind

    Being a free-to-play game isn’t easy, Warframe gives you complete control over how you want to play and progress. Want to stick to one frame, fine. Want to collect an army of frames to choose from, go for it.

    Each area has a boss which drops blueprints, these are essential to creating new frames and weapons. The only problem is they all take time to build. Each frame takes a minimum of 84 hours to build. This may seem like a long time but with so much to do your excitement only grows when waiting for your new frame to be ready. You can either earn everything that the game has to offer simply by playing the game, or you can use Platinum.

    Platinum is the premium in-game currency that is used to buy anything outright and skipping the waiting time. It is mainly used for cosmetic items which add a whole new level of customisation to your frames. Platinum can be bought with hard earned cash, but again DE looks to buck the current microtransaction trend by allowing you to trade your in-game items with other players for Platinum. It has created a stable and usable in-game economy, which means you can get whatever you want from the market with Platinum that hasn’t cost you anything at all. There has been a lot of focus on the grind that the game offers and buying things with Platinum. It can be off-putting to new players to start with, as it can feel slow and drawn out at times, but the more you play the quicker the grind gets.


    DE updates the game on a regular basis but last year saw the release of the biggest content drop to date – The Plains of Eidolon. An open world space with a multitude of creatures to kill, and caves to explore. It even has Warframe fishing! A 10-story high boss also awaits the bravest Tenno. It was a massive leap of faith for them moving from space stations and corridors to open land.

    Now they are looking to expand on that with the two new expansion packs announced at TennoCon 2018. The first is Fortuna, which will see the player taken to an open world settlement on Venus. Also, introducing a new faction Solaris United, a group of cyborgs that have made this their home. Coming with Fortuna is the Bondi-K Drive, a hoverboard that adds yet another level to the already satisfying movement tech within the game. New enemies and pastel hues provide even more to the ever-growing lore and content that Warframe offers. The second expansion announced is Codename: Railjack. Taking you off the planets and into space. DE plan to introduce space combat with this expansion allowing the player and their allies to engage in some truly frenetic battles.

    We have put around 50 hours into the game so far, which is a relatively low amount of time to be able to see everything that the game has to offer. Every time you jump into the game you always feel a sense of progression towards something; a new frame, new planet, or simply just leveling your chosen gear.

    Played on the HST Enso Ryzen 3 1200 Quad Core 1060 Gaming PC
