I SUCK at Virtual Reality, and so can YOU!

Taryn's Wreckreation Guide: My 1st HTC VIVE experience...

September 21, 2017

Considering the fact that GoldenEye 007 for N64 had been the extent of my first-person shooter video gaming experience until yesterday, I must say I am WAY behind the times, my friends. And being that I'm only truly skilled at Atari and Sega Genesis, Virtual Reality is something that scared the living daylights out of me until I gave it a shot! Bottom line? Don't knock it till you try it! 

 

Thanks to the fine folks at Virtual Sports in Tukwila, the HTC VIVE experience was set up AT WORK when I got to the station yesterday! To say I was intimidated would be an understatement, but I selected a solid partner with mad skills - Byron from Events and Promotions, of course! 

 

The game we were playing was Raw Data, and from what I gathered, we were a few hundred years in the future, essentially killing robots (zombie robots?) as a team while they attempted to take over our station. It was TERRIFYING. Yes, I was screaming. Yes, I was hitting the ground dodging laser bullets. And it was AWESOME! 

 

Okay, so that was my pathetic go at it. Here's something a bit more enticing!

 

I got a small taste of VR and now I'm hungry for more! Totally ready to take another stab at it when KISW presents GE2 October 21st & 22nd, featuring the hottest virtual gaming systems that will blow your mind - and MORE.
