King Kaiju VR, HTC Vive Games

King Kaiju VR Smash and Bash Destroy the World

Live the Dream in King Kaiju VR! Be the Monster! Smash your way through a completely destructible virtual reality city. A simple and silly sandbox game for your inner Kaiju. by Fire Hose Games. King Kaiju VR is a simple Unity game that is a blast for the family the kids will love smashing and the adults will get a blast watching them smash! For me a 45-year-old I did have some giggles and I did get my $5 worth of entertainment but the bonus of this game is watching others play it’s the funniest thing I have seen my kids do in a long time. Getting down to performance the MSI Aegis Ti made easy work of it but even its SLI GTX 1080’s could not handle full AA and shadows. I found Super sampling at 1.6 and AA at 4x gave me the best experience on the MSI Aegis TI. I also tested it on our MSI GE62VR with the GTX 1060 and was able to run King Kaiju at Super sampling at 1 and shadows and AA off it did not look as good on the GTX 1060 but it was more than playable with only 4 levels you get about one hour of game play but you are challenged to get better times and do more damage so you play till you cannot smash anymore

Budget GPU Test: Serious Sam VR the First Encounter – AMD vs NVIDIA

Serious Sam VR the First Encounter is like a perfectly restored classic muscle car that has all the features you love and includes modern performance enhancements and creature comforts. We Benchmark this diehard FPS on two Budget GPUs, the AMD-RX-480 and the NVIDIA GTX 1060 on the HTC Vive. Serious Sam the First Encounter (SSTFE) was originally released in 2001 by Croteam as a demonstrator for their engine. It was priced at less that half of other FPS games of that time to help it achieve market saturation and it worked. It was a staple disk to have in your LAN party CD folder. SSTFE was an instant hit and I have spent hundreds of hours playing solo, deathmatch and co-op, eating pizza and drinking beer to all hours of the morning. It was the game that you started up just as the LAN party was fading out at 1 or 2am and the last standing 4 gamers got a new wind of excitement as they joined forces to fight untold evils together. It always started as one quick last game and for the new unsuspecting gamers who thought bed was thirty minutes away, they found themselves trapped in an epic battle with the last four gamers for the next four hours. Fast forward 15 years and we now have a full offical port of SSTFE into VR.  Serious Sam VR the First Encounter is not like other VR hacks of old games such as Doom and Portal. This is an official remake with well thought out settings for graphics, interface and movement. It’s like someone gave Serious Sam to West Coast Customs and they handed back a restored masterpiece!

Can you VR on a Laptop? Evaluating the MSI GE62VR

Can you VR on a Laptop ? To find out we are Evaluating the MSI GE62VR, a month ago I got to meet MSI at Pax Australia and on the MSI booth I had a nice long chat with Ivy Hsu from MSI who was excited to show me the latest MSI range of VR laptops – some sleek and some desktop replacements. I was curious as to how well a laptop can handle some of the games available on Steam for the HTC Vive. After spending 2 months using a budget PC for all my VR needs I wanted to know if a laptop could really handle it. Ivy was kind enough to send me the GE62VR 6RF Apache Pro for a month of testing. The  GE62VR is one of many VR ready laptops from MSI and it’s a true mobile laptop with a weight of just 2.4 kg. That’s just over double the weight of my Surface 3 in its protective case. It’s way lighter than any performance laptop I have ever had the pleasure of using. Let’s have a look at the full specs:
