81JaxonHMon 15th Apr 2019 Hands On Impressions As A PSVR / Occulus Rift Owner I’m shocked at how good LABO VR is. And I say this after having a fairly lukewarm reaction to it out of the box. As soon as I got the goggles built I threw them on and tried some of the mini games from the garage, and frankly speaking they were pretty horrible. Especially from the viewpoint of someone who had experienced high end VR. Then I built the blaster (which, can I just say, was a blast, pun intended- it’s absolutely amazing how these contractions go together and work). I then proceeded to give the Blaster game a run, and... it changed everything. It changed my entire opinion of this LABO set. It’s only an hour of content at most (not counting replaying for higher scores), but it’s the most fun hour I’ve spent in VR in recent memory. The tactile feedback of the gun is what really elevates it above other experiences, on top of which, the game actually looks pretty dang good in VR. Those mini games just gave a horrible first impression, but the blaster game is proper VR. It’s what I recommend everyone try first. I also just got done playing Kablasta. And I have to say, it’s a pretty good multiplayer game with way more depth than you’d think at first glance. Neither of these games are going to provide you with hours and hours of content unless you’re super into high scores and challenging yourself for a gold medal on each stage. But the fun that’s on offer for the short duration you get to experience it is worth the buy-in, IMO. I haven’t even gotten to the camera or the wind pedal or bird or elephant yet. I figure all together I’ll get 5 solid hours of play time, but 5 really good hours. There’s also the time spent building everything which, to me, is nearly as entertaining as playing the games themselves. I love seeing how all these toycon take shape- it feels so good to build it yourself. Really makes you appreciate it more once you’re finished. I went from being reasonably excited, to having most of my hype killed when I first threw the goggles on and played the mini games, to being absolutely blown away when I tried the blaster. That thing is genuis, and I swear if Nintendo or a 3rd party doesn’t make a stand-alone game using it, it’s going to be one of the biggest missed opportunities this generation. That blaster is phenomenal. It is incredibly fun to use, and it would be tragic if this was all the action it ever gets to see.
