      Are you really a Christian? You seem like an anti-Christian troll. Just saying…. if you really are a Christian trying to spread the message I think you are being very counter productive.

      • Moe Curley

        Agree.

      • Pulstar44

        I’m gonna say troll. Who the hell is jesu and why does he save ouls anyways?

        • whiteturbo

          I know that guy, he’s dyslexic. His name is Jessy and he’s an ornithologist who collects owls.

  • lloydbeatz

    Backed Firmament on Kickstarter so I’ll be getting a copy of that but Lone Echo 2 is my Most Anticipated for sure.

  • DanDei

    Oh come on. Who actually believes that Valve will release one of its flagship VR titles in 2019? The year is over in 11 weeks and the game hasn’t even been announced yet. Not gonna happen.

    • gothicvillas

      It does look gloomy… but what if?!

      • DanDei

        There is realistic expactations and there is that small percentage chance that out of the blue life might just surprise you in the best possible way. Expecting the latter can easily set you up for disappointment, so I prefer only talking about the first.

        • Gus Bisbal

          I completely agree. I have already thought this. Look if all we get is half life 2 in VR I am happy

    • Jarilo

      Yea, maybe. I’m thinking announcement end of the year, release early 2020.

    • namekuseijin

      next year is best year because the nextgen consoles are coming and they sure want a share of that, specially if PS5 brings better controls for PSVR, besides infinite more power

    • drowhunter

      Had to scroll back up to the title to make sure I read it right. The title says 2020

  • AlexLogin0ff

    This year I’m still waiting for the game Walking Dead Onslaught and Undead Citadel

    • david vincent

      Btw Borderlands 2 VR is for tomorrow ! Yay !

  • Moe Curley

    Boneworks?

  • alex

    I’m a Quest owner only, I’m still waiting for Arizona Sunshine and The Climb (yeah…). I really want to try the Oculus Link to be able to test all these beauties!

    • DanDei

      Not sure The Climb would run well on Quest without severe graphic’s downgrade. But with the link cable there will be plenty of games available.

  • Jarilo

    Good list.

  • Ellie 187

    My valve index says Boneworks and Valve’s unannounced game are my two most anticipated titles

  • Rosko

    So Lone echo 2 is pretty much going to be in the same environment/location with the same 2 characters, the same assets & will probably have similar puzzles which imo where really poor in the first game. Honestly i just wish they started a new game.

  • Arcticu Kitsu

    Good list, good list :)

    Here is to hoping Medal of Honour shall hit the market heavily. It seems highly promising. As does the other titles. Nice strong list.

    Gundam VR when?

  • Jarilo

    That would be pretty wild. lol

  • State of Psychosis

    I’m excited for Firmament and Lone Echo 2. Still not a single turn-based RPG like Final Fantasy in VR yet though. I’ve been waiting 5 disappointing years and still not even one developer has given the genre a chance. Missed opporunity. Being the only game in a genre is a gauranteed sell.

    • kingcole225

      … Why would anyone make a turn-based rpg in VR?

  • Still can’t believe we get Stormland in just under a month. So excited!

  • Flagship VR game of Valve: do you mean Half Life VR? ;)

  • The Art of Virtual Reality

    Hello everyone, as part of an assignment, I would like to discuss with you all the utilization of Virtual Reality in helping people with mental illness or disabilities to overcome their limitations. There has been a rise in the medical sphere lately in using a VR treatment to help people to slowly readapting to the real world, as it also provides a safe space for them to learn. VR make the impossible, possible for people with disabilities and it offers a range of opportunities to these people when it comes to learning, relaxation or a rehabilitation process. It provides them with the ability to dive and travel into a world freely at their own will without any limitations and help them experience new things that they could never imagines before but now they are able to achieve it. I’d be very grateful if you all can participate in this conversation, giving your personal thoughts on the matter. What kind of VR games can be the best for them according to you and also what do you think about the concept of using VR as a purpose of treatment? Thank you all in advance for participating in this conversation~ ^^

    • Ardra Diva

      I think you’d want an app purpose-built for that. Too many of them are games full of action and even violence.

    • aasdfa

      so you may not know it but there are already a ton of companies going for this aspect of education. VR for mentally disabled to help teach, its already kinda a huge market

  • D Polo

    So is it official that Espire 1 has slipped till 2020?

  • ITALI-LORI-MONTI

    Follia – Dear Father

  • Paulski Lynchski

    Pistolwhip looks set to be huge – Viro Move will be pretty cool too

  • RickityRick

    I don’t know if I need to throw more grenades in VR…

  • State of Psychosis

    I’m excited for Firmament and Lone Echo 2. Still not a single turn-based RPG like Final Fantasy in VR yet though. I’ve been waiting 5 disappointing years and still not even one developer has given the genre a chance. Missed opportunity. Being the only game in a genre is a guaranteed sell.
