VRocker

During our last VR Game Roundup, there were a number of intriguing titles including a sequel to Crisis VRigade and X-BOOSTER. This week’s VR Game Roundup is more on the light side. What’s available includes a take on paintball, the movement app VRocker, and a title that is being marketed as the “most fun game in VR.”

Warchasm

Kicking off this week’s VR Game Roundup is Warchasm. This fast-paced shooter will have you taking out swarms of aliens in mechs. You’ll get to use a variety of guns ranging from ray guns to quad missile launchers. This is set to test your reflexes as you make it through levels.

Fitness Potential

The shooting will keep your arm busy and there are plenty of obstacles that players will have to dodge out of the way from during on-rail sequences. This is the best fitness pick this week and there is plenty of movement to help you lose calories.

VRocker

VRocker is a virtual reality app allows players to change how you move in games with analog stick movement. This can help alleviate issues with motion sickness while wearing a headset and can feel more natural as a result. There’s a free demo if you want to check it out prior to buying it.

Fitness Potential

It’s a useful tool for turning non-fitness titles into ones that will require more movement. If you want to stay active in VR, but aren’t into the more workout focused titles then there is a lot of value here. Give the demo a try and see if it makes your non-fitness VR games more enjoyable. You can potentially enjoy the best of both worlds.

Matrix Blocks

Matrix Blocks is marketing itself as the most fun game in all of virtual reality. If you take a look at the trailer, you can determine that it does not quite live up to its billing. It’s a very basic title that has players attempting to destroy blocks that fly towards them with light sabers.

Fitness Potential

You can get a mild arm workout playing Matrix Blocks but that is about it. There’s far better, and more fun, games that are based around the same mechanics such as Beat Saber. Don’t buy into the manufactured hype.

Grit Paintball

Finishing up this week’s VR Game Roundup is Grit Paintball, which has now become available via Steam Early Access. This is very bare bones at the moment as there are no opponents or A.I. to go up against. Instead, you can just practice your paintball shooting and customize a field with different obstacles and targets. It’s meant for professional players that want to practice.

Fitness Potential

There’s a good bit of movement when you are ducking behind cover and trying to shoot. This might be a very active game once it is completed. Throw in something like VRocker to make movement use your body and this would be a really good workout down the line. Definitely a title to keep an eye out on if you enjoy paintball.
