Oh man.... or at least buy it for my buddy and borrow his Vive. April 25th is so close!

Is this the same exact thing that is already on PS VR?

Yes it is.

Goldenrod, how is this game on PSVR? I think this is a $20 title and pretty short experience?

I liked it even tho it was a very short game. I got 20% off when I bought it. Should go back and maybe try to get some of the trophies for PlayStation.

I think Jocelyn is going to trivia tonight and Corey/Wags are too busy to play VR with me. Good opportunity to knock out this 45-60 minute game.

I started this the other day. It's not really a spoiler because we've seen it 17 other times, but the game starts with young Bruce Wayne and his parents getting shot in the alley. They do a really cool thing with scale and you feel like a little kid standing next to adults while it all happens.

Finished the game in 62 minutes. It actually got pretty scary (for me) at the end. I was jumping and screaming. I won't discuss the story unless Goldenrod comes back or someone else plays.

It was a fun game with some creep factor. Just wish it was longer. I even went back and looked for all the extra things.

I played through this tonight. Super cool use of VR and it gets really dark/creepy at the end. Haven't gone back in to unlock all the other stuff, just played through the first time.

Spoilers from Reddit:

The game takes place after Arkham City and before Arkham Knight. My Idea of what the story is when the first time Batman really hallucinated the Joker. In Arkham knight Batman starts seeing the Joker after being exposed to Scarecrows new fear gas, Where as before he was able to keep him under control.
So this story had to be induced by some Nightmare or lack of sleep on Batman's part. Thru out the game we hear alarm clocks going off (At the beginning when we "wake up", When we go down the elevator in the Asylum, and the very end) Which might mean this is all a Nightmare Batman is trying to wakeup from. Killing Nightwing and letting croc kill Robin tigers something in Batman. Which is followed up in Arkham Knight where Batman is very over protective of Robin and wants Nightwing to stay out of Gotham, Along with the fact that he tortures himself by reliving Jason's death.
There are also some other hints that it may be connected. In the Wayne Manor challenge map in Arkham Knight we see the cell '4-25', 'Did Penguin Know?','Bodies in the morgue', 'Whose cell?',and 'He Knew his killer' Which all points to Arkham VR as being a Nightmare that he is trying to dissect.

I don't really have a point of reference for a lot of that since I haven't played through the other Arkham games, so I just assumed Batman became a crazy murderer.
