    Accounting+ Brings Three Times More Content To Rift, Vive And PSVR Soon

    Get ready to be shouted at some more in VR!

    Accounting+, the expansion to Crows, Crows, Crows hilariously eccentric VR experience (which itself was born from a collaboration with Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland), is coming to the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift very soon. The original game did launch on the Vive all the way back in 2016, though this is the first time it’ll be officially appearing on the Rift. The expansion, meanwhile, first launched on PSVR late last year.

    All three versions of the game will be fitted with brand new content that total up to three times the size of the original experience, as this typically mad trailer explains. Accounting+ isn’t a game as such, more of a series of increasingly outlandish sequences in which zany characters will shout at you and generally make you feel extremely uncomfortable. There’s nothing quite like it in all of VR and we wouldn’t change a thing about it.

    The new version of the game will come with support for multiple languages and include a level loader that allows you to visit any point in the experience on a whim so that you can bring your friends straight into the bit where you cut that blob open.

    Elsewhere, Roiland’s Squanch Games is currently busy working on another PSVR exclusive, Trover Saves The Universe.

  • VR Stealth Game Espire 1 Reemerges From The Shadows With Amazing Trailer
    VR Stealth Game Espire 1 Reemerges From The Shadows With Amazing Trailer

    All the way back in February 2017 we wrote about Espire 1: VR Operative, a promising new VR stealth game from indie developer Michael Wentworth-Bell. Around August last year, though, the game went dark. That is until this week.

    Now under the name of Digital Lode, the developer has reemerged from the shadows with an amazing new trailer for Espire 1 along with the news that it’s going to be published by Killing Floor: Incursion developer, Tripwire Interactive. The game’s set to offer a full single-player campaign. Check it out below.

    Espire 1 looks like it could finally deliver on the promise of the thrilling VR stealth game. Playing as an Espire operative, you sneak through environments using weapons and high-tech gadgets to clear the way. Much like Budget Cuts and Unknightly before it, the game will place an emphasis on the player’s physical movement, allowing them to throw magazines that will create noisy distractions and even knock guards unconscious by hitting them with the butt of your weapon. Wall-climbing and crouching through vents also appears to be in.

    On top of the campaign, there will be challenge missions to compete in via global leaderboards. One especially nice touch is the use of the built-in microphones in VR headsets, which allow you to make noises to distract guards but might also have you tripping up too. Tripwire is doing more than just publishing the game, though, having contributed to marketing, tech, art and audio for the project. Hopefully that will give Espire 1 a level of polish that it couldn’t have achieved before.

    For now, we know that Epsire 1 will be arriving sometime in 2019 for unconfirmed headsets, though the game’s previously been shown running on an HTC Vive.

    Beat Saber’s Multiplayer Is 85% Finished, Releasing After PSVR Port

    Beat Games Studio, the studio behind smash-hit VR rhythm game, Beat Saber, are nearly done developing the game’s highly anticipated multiplayer mode. In a tweet today, the official Twitter account explained that “85% of Multiplayer is complete” and the only things remaining are things like a tournament client, avatar support, and custom level support.

    In follow-up tweets, the developer explains that the majority of development focus has shifted to PSVR for the time being, as explained previously, so that the port can be finalized and released. After that point, they intend to focus solely on multiplayer until it’s done which should happen “quickly after it has our full focus.”

    (1/3) Multiplayer current stage: @Umbranoxus has been working really hard in the past months and currently 85% of Multiplayer is complete. Remaining features, such as the tournament client, avatar support or custom levels implementation, require cooperation of the whole dev team. pic.twitter.com/yoDeYEr8Ss

    (2/3) All remaining work can be done relatively fast and is not hard to complete, but since our team now needs to fully focus on PS VR development, we decided to postpone remaining development of Multiplayer for a while (but not for long!).

    — Beat Saber (@BeatSaber) September 20, 2018

    (3/3) Current plan is to release Multiplayer after we finish PS VR development and release the game. Very positive is that only approximately 15% of Multiplayer needs to be completed and we should be able to do it quickly after it has our full focus.

    Beat Saber recently announced arcade cabinet installations are being deployed in Asian markets and the modding community continues to deliver quality custom songs that have kept the game alive far beyond the initial 10-song (now 11) Early Access release.

    Mario Kart VR Is Coming To Washington D.C. This Fall

    Your next visit to the seat of democracy in the United States could include a side-journey into another universe where tossing banana peels and turtle shells is the surest way to separate the winners from losers.

    Bandai Namco is bringing Mario Kart VR to the United States at VR Zone Portal Washington D.C. inside Union Station. The launch comes after locations in Japan and England were the first to receive the high-end VR experience which allows you to race against friends in Mushroom Kingdom. Jamie Feltham recently went hands-on with the game in London and even though it felt a bit guided and “on-rails” the sheer joy of entering a world from a Nintendo game to compete with friends could be a dream come true for many fans of the iconic franchise.

    The system uses HTC Vive and hand-strapped Trackers to grab power-ups out of the air so you can toss them at Mario, Luigi, Peach or Yoshi.

    Washington D.C.’s Union Station will be the first U.S. location to debut the games you’ve been waiting for. Starting October 1, Argyle Shift, Mario Kart VR, and Ski Rodeo will be playable at the historic site. pic.twitter.com/cjFjCdroT7

    The experience should be available along with others at the arcade in Washington D.C.’s Union Station starting Oct. 1.

  • GIVEAWAY: Win A Free Copy Of Zone Of The Enders 2 On PSVR Or A PS4 Controller
    GIVEAWAY: Win A Free Copy Of Zone Of The Enders 2 On PSVR Or A PS4 Controller

    Attention to all mech pilots! We are hosting a giveaway for Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner in which you can enter for a chance to win a free copy of the game on PSVR and potentially even a Zone of the Enders-themed PS4 DualShock 4 controller. There are eight ways to enter right here or down below.

    Winners will be randomly selected. We have two PSVR download codes for Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner and a Zone of the Enders-branded DualShock 4 gamepad for PS4. Both codes are NA and the controller can only be won by a US resident. Three winners will be selected to distribute both codes and the controller.

    Here’s what we thought of the game from our full review:

    “The Zone of the Enders universe is absolutely ripe for a VR game to call its own, but The 2nd Runner’s appreciated if inelegant support perhaps wasn’t the right way to go. There are those expected magic moments of robo-battling ecstasy, but they’re weighed down by archaic design and somewhat awkward integration. It’s way past time for Konami to stop obsessing over the preservation of this cult classic and start thinking about what a great Zone of the Enders game might look like in the years to come. That, I suspect, is where the real magic lies.”

    Winners will be selected at approximately 4PM PT on Friday, September 21st, 2018. If you’d rather not click a link, here is the embedded contest:
