A perfect Analogy for those non-VR believers saying Astro Bot will play the same if it's non-VR. Imagine seeing a first person video of a rollercoaster ride on a flat screen TV. Then imagine riding the rollercoaster ride in real life (or VR). The experience is a world of difference.This was exactly what I was thinking. I've played this kind of level in every Ratchet, and I've never find them neither fun or challenging. But VR sure changes everything; when I finished the level I actually shouted a "Fuck yeah!" and immediately replayed the level.
So far, the game has exceeded my expectations.
Horizontal rotation can drift because there is no horizontal gravitational force to ground it (a compass like many phones have would do it). It would be nice if the camera were good enough to use the shape of the light bar to determine approximate horizontal rotation.
Yes, I wasn't expecting anything on PSVR to 'wow' me after being introduced to VR with my Vive. But this is amazing.
I didn’t buy the Move controllers due to this. I feel it would just be frustrating being used to Vive’s superior room scale. And $80 is too much considering.
No they are definitely worth it, as they give you hands. It's just that the pc controls are so much better.
Another analogy I've read somewhere. Watching a VR game on a flat screen, is like being a virgin and watching "pron" ;) you have no idea how it feels to be inside :DA perfect Analogy for those non-VR believers saying Astro Bot will play the same if it's non-VR.

I'm doing the 1-4 challenge (the one with the tightropes?) and I can't beat the time for the gold.
Yeah the rope one gave me some troubles early on too. I ended up checking videos on Youtube and learned some good shortcuts that allowed me to get it after a few tries.
I was gonna load my trophy guide to help you but the only guide I had found a while ago has now been delisted...the fuck...
Too true. I've been humming the damn theme to the first cave level since the day the game was released.Purchased the game for $20 today after playing through the demo and played through the first two worlds in one sitting. One thing I liked that I wasn't expecting aside from all the clever uses of the VR in terms of gameplay but was how damn catchy the music was.
Still... It's such a great encounter it's not so bad repeating it. I haven't done that one yet mind...
The water (and environments) is the 'realist' looking I've seen in a video game. Fwiw...
What about all the challenge levels? And getting all of the pod decorations (minigame in itself with some decorations)?
Will get back to it for the leftovers.
