Back to VR “The Climb”

I’m gaming again in VR this time I got a hold of the game created by Crytek using the Cryengine  called The Climb.
This game has had a premium price tag of $49.99 and has stayed at that price point for the last year. That is until Oculus Store had a daily deal and snapped it up for a mere $9.99!
In this game you use your touch controllers to grip and climb mountains from different areas around the world.

I’ve only climbed the 1st mountain and let me tell you it is really an awesome experience.
My arms actually get tired from reaching and stretching to grab that ledge around the bend of the mountain.
If you have the Rig to crank up those settings do it! The views are amazing and when looking down you really feel like your high up on a mountain hanging with 1 hand.
It’s important you dust your hands for extended hang times it’s not very much extended but that little bit could mean life or death.
You gets stars at end of your climb which can open a new mountain for you to conquer.
Depends on if you climb faster and other goals they will give for you to achieve.

If you have an Oculus this is really a must get game it’s seriously that cool I dare say it’s even worth $50 which is rare of me to say since I think PC games should never exceed $39.99.
While I do think it was a Oculus Rift exclusive title it does work with the HTC Vive as far as I know. Does the Vive need any mods to get it working or does it work out of the box? This I’m not sure of but I do know I’ve seen video of others playing The Climb on the Vive and looked nice and smooth no different than the Oculus.

Here are some screens that I have downloaded they are not screens I took myself.


Aside from finding and playing this wonderful game there are a few other honorable mentions. The games I list here are ones I play regularly in VR and are worth playing and purchasing.

Arktika.1
This is another Oculus exclusive and it may work with the HTC Vive do a look about to see if this can be done or if it’s supported.
This is a straight up shooter you weild guns that you can upgrade with the credits you earn after each mission.
Let me just say in this list the new DOOM VFR isn’t listed why? Well because it plain sucked ass in comparison to Arktika.1. Check out the home page:

Spartaga
This is a bullet hell game where you control your ship with your hand of choice left or right.
Challenge is to stay alive get combos dodge like hell and shoot down everything you see above you below you and even in your face.
It gets adrenaline flowing and some anger as well. lol
Great game if you liked Xortex 26xx or Galaxis Wars or Chamber 19 then this game will be for you.
