Adr1ft looks like a very interesting game which would be released on March 28th of 2016 for PC first. PS4 and Xbox One gamers will have to wait till late 2016. Adr1ft supports Oculus Rift, and I think you may get more joy in playing this game in virtual reality than just your regular computer monitor or TV screen. I don’t know much about the game, but the trailer hints that it’s somewhat a space/astronaut simulation sort. The trailer shows the game got gorgeous graphics. I would love to try it out! Unfortunately, I don’t think I can try this game out in Oculus Rift, because I don’t have Oculus Rift. Still, the game is also available for PC, and so I might play this game on PC. Check out the trailer for Adr1ft right after the break. Enjoy!

The Atlas is the new video gaming system (using Oculus Rift gaming headset) which brings the virtual reality world to the common gamers. The technology had been existed for some time. Nonetheless, before Atlas’ existence, experiencing awesome virtual reality required one to visit a location that rigged with stationary virtual reality equipments, and these virtual reality equipments had not come cheap at all. Now, Atlas boasts that it can bring the awesomeness of virtual reality to a common gamer like me at an itty-bitty fraction of the cost of the traditional virtual reality equipments. The Atlas app would be on your smartphone too.
So, with Atlas, you get to walk around in the virtual reality world as if you’re in a real environment. Experiencing games in a virtual reality world would be awesome indeed. Nonetheless, just like Xbox’s Kinect, one has to be physical when interacting with the game environment, therefore the whole process can be rather strenuous to the gamers. A good workout I guess! Furthermore, what if a game in the virtual reality world requires you to physically run really fast, will you do that and hurt yourself in a real world?
On a fun note, a lazy person like me like to come up with lazy idea as usual. Imagining this, sitting in a virtual reality world playing another video game inside it. Perhaps, this way you don’t really to have to physically do anything to hurt yourself in the real world. Or not? Check out the video right after the break to get to know more about Atlas.
