Thread: Moss

  1. #1


    Moss

    I'm speculating that many of you won’t have a PlayStation VR, but for those of you that do consider picking up Moss. So far, it's very good and only $30.

    I can honestly say I have never played a game quite like this before, and it is one of the shining examples of what VR should be.



    It has a strong story that reminds me of Labyrinth / The Secret of Nimh, but that’s not even the best part. These environments are incredible.

    Sadly the one downside I’ve seen is that the player is the only one who can truly appreciate the game, spectators miss out on just how amazingly detailed these environment puzzles are.

    seems more like an interactive book, than a game.
    but definitely something i would get for my daughter

    I grew up in the 80s, and then VR hit in the early/mid 90s, and I was WOOOOHOOOOO!!
    But it never hit the home market, and the only "local arcade" that could afford a unit was the one that was also a Strip Club!! Little 15 year old Jay never got to try it out ....

    ... or the VR machine.


    I'm ecstatic that VR has finally hit its stride. But am also completely cheesed off that it’s happened AFTER all my Brain Tumour crap, which has left me with incredibly bad Motion Sickness, to the point where even playing 3D games on tv can leave me wanting to Vom, after just a few minutes.
    Grown up Jay can’t play with VR.

    Grown up Jay is sad.

    I can see where you would get that vibe; there are segments that deliver the story in a similar fashion. But there is a real fun puzzle game within that is worth every penny.
    One of the real unique features we discovered while playing was that the player can stand up and look through this world without having to move or manipulate ‘Quill’ the character. Much like if the player was looking into a diorama. This is where it becomes apparent that the game could only be appreciated by the player character and not spectators.

    Sorry Jay, if it’s any condolence this was the first VR title I’ve tried that really blew my mind. Star Trek Bridge Crew is fun as well, but doesn’t really compare.
    Sadly, the 90’s VR was complete crap. It was an interesting way to market motion sickness for the low price of $15 for maybe five minutes. lol

    That’s weird, the only place that had a rig (that I knew of at least) was a bar. I guess VR really misjudged who their target audience would be. Even as a kid $15 of alcohol sounded like a more responsible choice between the two. lol

    A bar and a strip club? Even in the 90s VR was 2 steps from the porn market. It still is now.

    I'm assuming Mr Mouse isn't just a cutesy character walking around and eating cheese? I never actually looked at Moss. Might take a minute and do that.

    Yeah, my guess is that VR from the 90's was probably trying to establish a foothold with audiences that already had disposable income and a willingness to to splurge on habits (hints the environments).

    I haven't finished Moss yet, but it is amazing so far (I'm guessing I'm 1/3 of the way through). If you have the VR setup then being able to view the environment alone is worth it (VERY detailed work).

    Doubt I will get PSVR since they probably still haven't fixed issues for people with glasses like eye strain, headaches after, some even get motion sickness though that can be for a number of issues like mentioned above. I have a game concept that would work in VR but the way I keep losing artists and whatnot it might be 10 years after VR is over

    Warranty? That might explain some things.
