Playstation 4 VR is almost upon us. Gamers across the globe are bracing themselves for the next level of gaming. On October 13th 2016 the Virtual reality experience on the Playstation 4 will be an absolute reality. A lot of you guys have been asking me "Gemma will you be buying the PS4 VR headset?". Up until E3 my answer was simple: "no'. As soon as I heard about the Resident Evil 7 game being compatible with PS4 VR I started to re-think my initial hesitation. As each new PS4 VR game is announced it looks more and ore likely that I will be buying it. The PS4 VR game line-up is looking pretty solid right now and a few titles have already wet my gaming palette. The obvious choices are the go to Triple A titles like Fallout 4 VR and DOOM VR. What about the the other titles that will be gracing PS4 VR? Here are 5 PS4 VR games that I think look phenomenal.
#1 Resident Evil 7
Resident Evil 7 or rather Biohazard 7 in Japan is due for release on January 24th 2017. Having beat the Resident Evil 7 demo it is incredibly clear that Capcom took a completely new angle on the latest instalment of good ol' Resi. It felt less about dodging hordes of the undead and more about survival. I could not help but compare it to the vibe of the P.T demo; intense, twisted, shrouded in mystery and left me yearning for more. Games Radar reported Resident Evil 7 was in development before P.T came to fruition. Konami beat Capcom to the table in terms of delivering their demo first. How gutting must that have been for Capcom Developers?
Resident Evil 7 is not one to be missed on PS4 VR.
Never before has a video game seemed to bring people together this much whilst having a ton of fun at the same time! Pokémon Go Mania has arrived and with swarms of Pokémon Trainers flooding every local park imaginable it seems fair to suggest that Pokémon Go Mania isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. M questions are simple: Are you one of the people that are avoiding it? Do you think you are too old to play Pokémon Go? Think again ladies and gentleman because this game has reached the hearts and minds of all ages and from many different backgrounds. I have friends on my personal Facebook list that are well in to their fifties and are loving Pokémon Go as much as I am. But why has Pokémon Go taken the world by storm? What is it about Pokémon Go that is so damn luring?
Back in the day as a sixteen year old I totally missed out on the original Pokémon craze. I was still hiding the fact that I played video games back then as it was not cool for girls tone playing at all. Ultimately I missed the classic Pokémon start. With the recent release of Pokémon Go however, I feel like I’m getting a second chance to relive the hype and I am absolutely loving it and for someone who does not play games on mobile phones Pokémon Go has me glued to my iPhone like never before.
What do we have here?
Pokémon Go is a location based Augmented Reality game by Niantic Labs but Pokémon Go is not their first game by any means. Field Trip and Ingress are two other prominent titles that you may have heard of. It has to be said that Pokémon Go is their most influential to date and rightly so as that franchise has always been incredibly strong.
We know that the overall aim to catch as many Pokémon as possible, level them up and evolve them. That’s the nuts and bolts of the game. We also know that a lot of walking is involved. In fact walking has a lot of advantages in Pokémon Go as there’s scope to hatch eggs and gain brand new Pokémon! Popular Youtube Boogie 2988 reportedly lost over 15lb already just by playing Pokémon Go. That is a real Stereotype breaker for gamers. The notion of Lazy Gamers cannot possibly apply when it comes to Pokémon Go. On launch day I ventured out on my lunch break and found myself locked in conversations with strangers all over town. On a normal day this would be unthinkable but it’s a true testament to how Pokémon Go is hunting gamers from all walks of life. It is a truly gripping experience.

We're well in to the Playstation 4 and Xbox One and more recently the Nintendo Switch eras of gaming. Graphics had never looked so smooth and gameplay had never flowed so fluently. Let's not forget the triumphant last Generation of gaming with the Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii; all of which I have a lot of time for.
