Everything you need to know about VR before you start

Ever since I squeezed my face into David Braben's Rift hole (humblebrag), I've been a VR convert. I've moved house three times since then, and each time I've managed to tether up some sort of VR system, from the pokiest of rooms to my reasonably spacious home office. That last one is not a humblebrag, as I'm far too humble to do two in one…

Ever since Half-Life: Alyx came out earlier this year, virtual reality has been going from strength to strength, so we've put together a list of the best VR games you can play on PC right now.

Hullo! John is preoccupied with wizards right now, so I'm taking over for the rundown of last week's top ten on Steam. It was an interesting week, bringing back some welcome old games and slamming in some shiny new ones. Largely, it's all about robots and survival.

VR rhythm game Beat Saber swishes into early access

My Vive, which once made me literally dance with joy, gathers dust. That's less to do with how much fun I know I'd have if I set the damn thing up, and everything to do with the faff. I've got to deal with wobbly lighthouse stands, a PC that turns off if I bump into it and the hassle of putting contact lenses in. Why…

Beat Saber is Guitar Hero for wannabe Jedi

“May the Force rise to meet you” as the priests and altar boys of the Star Wars universe say. In Beat Saber, a VR rhythm game described by its creators as “a mashup of Guitar Hero and Fruit Ninja”, this is exactly what happens. The Force, manifesting here as coloured panels with glowing arrows painting on them, fly toward you in time to a healthy…
