Several companies are working hard in the Virtual Reality field, producing some rather tantalizing previews of whats to come in the future. One of the companies making the VR look bright for the future is Iceland’s CCP Games. Their currently under-development EVE Valkyrie is considered a standard-bearer for VR games. Made for Oculus Rift and Sony’s Project Morpheus, this interesting and appealing space dogfighting game is definitely a sign of things to come as it attracts VR users everywhere. They also have a game called Gunjack, as a similar gaming experience albeit with less impressive graphics, being made for Samsung Gear VR device. In a
The current state of affairs in Formula 1 is something that kept me away from the sport. The level of predictability simply got to my nerves and the overall appeal was lost along the way. On the other hand, my particular motorsport gaming attraction is growing stronger. One of the upcoming releases from Codemasters, dubbed F1 2015 , is a simulation game revolving around the most famous racing sport out there.

Does violence in games really have an effect on gamers after all? A recent study at the University of Tokyo reopens this long time issue in video games, albeit with a little twist. If you’re a gamer, don’t worry. This won’t be about reflected behaviors and supposed killer instinct issues, though some of it may sound a little bit familiar. The research’s primary objective is to find out some of the long term neurological effects of violent video games. In order to learn more about this, the researchers sampled a small group of adult men and women, and gave them one popular, mainstream violent and
I’ve been following NPD Sales charts for ages now, and it was always interesting to see how long can a title hold on them. Blizzard and EA/Maxis are long standing legends – in the past eight years, there haven’t been a weekly or monthly sales chart where at least one title from these companies didn’t occupy spot or two.
