Lone Echo (VR)

Postby Tyler » Thu Sep 07, 2017 12:05 pm

Lone Echo is the single player game on the Rift, whereas Echo Arena is the free multiplayer game.

I bought this last night and actually had time to start it since Jocelyn went to bed early (sorry brad! We could have done sports bar, but I thought it was too late your time to start). I played about 45 minutes and I'm loving it so far.

The story is just starting to unfold, but I'm really enjoying the mechanics and just exploring the space station. Echo Arena got me a little sick, but I felt fine all during this game. I think it's because I was moving slower and taking my time.

The game is going to have a puzzle aspect to it, so that's an automatic no for Corey, but the environment is so detailed and fun. I can't wait to play more.

Played about an hour tonight, I am really getting into this game. 100% exploring/puzzles so it's not for everyone. My dad tried playing it a couple weeks ago. He was amazed that his character had arms/elbows, but after 20 minutes he asked "do I get guns in this game?"

I'm finding the game super immersive and the hour flew by tonight. I was on a small shuttle outside of the station and I was told to hold on, so obviously I didn't. The shuttle blasted off under me and my heart skipped a beat while I frantically tried grabbing a hold of something as I went tumbling off of it.

I've been playing this on and off for the past couple of weeks. I lost my save when I switched my Oculus games from my SSD to my HDD, but I was able to find an save online that is around where I quit. Stuff got pretty exciting yesterday and I'm really getting into the story and characters. I've been skipping over some of the option side-quest-like objectives and just focusing on the main story. I assume I am little more than midway through? Game length varies from 4-9 hours depending on play style.

I took a break from Shadows of War to play this again. I had a VR itch that need scratched tonight. I'm stuck on a very hard part that is basically an obstacle course. I died probably 15 times until I gave up and watched a YouTube tutorial. Guy was doing exactly what I was doing, I just need to take it slower. I'll try it again some other day, I need a break because I worked up a sweat.

I finally beat this. I really enjoyed the visuals, mechanics, and story. I constantly got lost in the gameplay and forgot where I was in the room.

The game was repetitive at times though and very frustrating at the parts I kept dying at. I recommend everyone play it, but I would totally get it if people didn't stick with it. I got so frustrated a couple of times I find saves online of people beating the part I was stuck on and skipped to that. It didnt hurt the story, just got me through the hard part.

I started playing this one the other day as well. I really enjoy the movement system. It really makes you feel like you're flying through space! The only gripe i have thus far is finding certain objectives. It looks like you should be able to track them on your quest hud but sometimes you just cant? So you have to fly around aimlessly and try to figure it out. Besides that I agree with Tyler that the graphics and story is great!

I had to use YT guides quite a bit on this game just because I was impatient. It gets a little old looking around for a floating cube and you want to get to something exciting. That is my only complaint though

Another +1 to Kyle. He has VR for his 2nd week and already playing a game I recommended over a year ago that none of you even tried!!

We're considered friends now?! I should have sold the Rift to you years ago
