Weekend Whammy: Marvel Phase 4, The Witcher & Picard

A fist fight in Defector for Oculus Rift

I’m back with another entirely late Weekend Whammy, and this week I’m mostly chatting about The Witcher show and Marvel’s Phase 4 plans. As always this series of articles is just about the games I’ve reviewed, what I’ve been playing, watching and reading and anything else I fancy chatting about. Let me know in the comments what you’ve been up to this week as well!

Right, just the one review this week because contrary to popular belief I do actually have a life. That’s a bold face lie. Anyway, this week I reviewed Defector for the Oculus Rift. It had some great elements, including a bloody amazing opening level, but it didn’t quite manage to keep the momentum going.

It’s important to remember that VR is still very much in its infancy and developers are working to find out how to make games for it. Nor are the big developers willing to produce a big triple-A, full price game for the format yet, perhaps because there isn’t much of an install base yet to make a profit on one. Until VR drops in price and becomes more accessible, though, that doesn’t look like it’s going to change any time soon.

A review of They Are Billions will be posted in the next day or two as well. After that I’ve got the new FIA European Truck Racing Championship to cover, a screen review and some other stuff. Basically, I have way too many things sitting in my backlog so I might just go hide in my bed for a while. Adult responsibilities can go jump off a cliff.
