Project Winter - Deception based fun!

This is a great game of hidden identity. Up to 8 people start out in a small hut, 2 of which are traitors, who are working together to try to stop the rest of the people (survivors) from completing their objectives and eventually escaping. The traitors start out with Walkie Talkies and can communicate with each other right at the start. The survivors can only communicate when nearby each other, until they build their own walkie talkies.   The survivors are focused on completing multiple task (randomly given out) to get to the end game of getting themselves off this cold and gloomy place. It's crazy, it's devious and it will cause you to not trust your friends or anyone else for that matter.  It plays like a deception / hidden role board game, which are some of my favorite. 
I streamed my session last night, if you'd like to see what the game plays like.

Summer Funland - A must have VR experience

Summer Funland is one of those VR experiences that is a must have. The mini games are fun, but where it really stands out are the interactive experiences. The trip through Space,  Climbing up a tower, riding the Batcycle in Gotham, and going through underwater ruins in Atlantis are all amazing. All of this on top of a well crafted and very interactive environment that ties it all together. I can't say enough good things about Summer Funland. It's an experience that people will remember when they talk about the early days of VR and what stood out.

Furious Seas -VR ship combat!

I am a huge fan of Sid Meier's Pirates from back in the day, so naturally I am excited by Pirate themed games. When I saw Furious Sea's was out and in VR I was excited beyond the sea's.

Furious Seas is a simple ship combat game that offers 4 modes, survival, which is waved combat. Exploration, which is a find your own combat and adventure. Story mode, which is a story based adventure featuring multiple battles that play out into a narrated story, and multiplayer survival, that allows you to play with up 4 people in co-op  or not so friendly co-op if you leave friendly fire on. You collect loot from sunken ships, it can be gold, used to buy bigger ships, repair crates that heal your ship or mines that you can deploy into the water. Overall I enjoyed the game and hope they keep adding more content and the community grows along with it.
Here is my video if you'd like to see the game in action. This was recorded on an HTC Vive with a 1080gtx.
