I hope you like puzzles, because both of the main new releases on Sony’s PlayStation VR (PSVR) this week are all about them. One of the games we reviewed and we previewed the other previously, so you don’t have to go in blind. Other than that, there’s a music video, which Sony seems fond of producing for hit pop songs these days. Enjoy!
If you missed last week, you can see those new releases here. Also, UploadVR has launched the ‘UploadVR PSVR Community’ on PlayStation 4! Join up, find other gamers to play with, and engage in discussions with them.
Also, don’t forget to check out our list of the 9 Best PlayStation VR Games if you need any extra inspiration.
Statik, from Tarsier Studios
Think of it as kind of like VR’s version of Portal, except instead of shooting portals into walls to solve puzzles, in Statik you’re fiddling with a perplexing little box in your hand. The whole game has a very simple premise, but the puzzles get more and more complex as it goes on.
Recommendation: If you like puzzles and don’t mind getting stumped every now and then, you’ll find a lot to love here. Read our review.
Symphony of the Machine, from Stirfire
Puzzle games are regaining popularity due to the advent of virtual reality as they take the genre in strange, often interesting, new directions. Symphony of the Machine is one such case that tasks you with rebounding light off of mirrors to grow plants and rebirth an area of a bizarre, desolate world.
Recommendation: Fun puzzle mechanics, worth a look if you like the genre. Won’t convert you otherwise, though. Here’s our preview.
The Chainsmokers Paris.VR
Price: Free (US Only)
Whether or not you hate or love The Chainsmokers, chances are you’ve heard at least one of their insanely catchy pop anthems over the last year or so. Paris, one of the most recent singles, now has a VR experience directly from Sony Music Entertainment.
Recommendation: Check it out if you like the song.
