Summary

Guns’n’Stories is a must play VR game, Its presented in such a way you are immediately dragged into the world. The way they deliver the story shines along with expert tracking, Well if your PSVR is set up correctly that is! Any bad tracking and it is not a fun time. The guns unlock over time and each one just gets better and better, Enemies full-on ragdoll upon death, Shooting an enemy in the arm cause it to go all limp and flail about. Having headshots and combos bang up keeps you on edge, I never once felt sick and stayed in VR for a long time. It is a glorified shooting gallery but it is a polished well-executed fun shooting gallery!

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
