their previous engine was great, very detailed internal environments, but it ran like a dog on consoles. i can see why they switched engine, but they could have chose a better one. i like the games though, not amazing, but decent little adventure games. so i'll be checking this out

    MrWhite The game doesn't have to rely on cheap jump scares normally associated with traditional game design in VR. The immersion just does it automatically. It's something a normal TV can't compete with. (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite the game should come with a warning and a disclaimer should you decide to play it in VR. As soon as you're there, it's extremely uncomfortable, even if nothing is happening. (2 Hours ago)

    MrWhite @alimokrane: Trust me on this, if immersion and horror is the aim here, and it is, then first person and VR makes perfect sense. I'm not joking when I say this... (2 Hours ago)

    MrWhite @alimokrane: The demo is tame compared to what I seen in the first 45 minutes. The atmosphere got ramped up big time, and don't be thinking you're safe behind closed doors or walls. (2 Hours ago)

    alimokrane @MrWhite: I know people prefer VR or first person view but if they were to patch 3rd person view, my life would be complete. (2 Hours ago)
