Oculus and Samsung partnered up last year to launch the Gear VR, and today they started shipping the newest edition of the virtual reality headset and launched a new platform within the Oculus Store. With a few Gear VR games and apps already available in the same store, launching Concepts is a bonus for those who really want to experience virtual reality from the ground up. Oculus Concepts is essentially a platform where VR game developers can upload their Gear VR games before completion, so that users can test them and give feedback.

That being said, paying $100 to get the new Gear VR from the Oculus store seems much more interesting. With early access to new games and apps and the chance to experience how VR content is made from the ground up is an interesting opportunity, even for casual users. There’s a lot of investment involved in the Gear VR, because it only works with newer Samsung Galaxy handsets, which are rather expensive exceeding $500 unlocked.

However, the Oculus Concepts store offers an additional reason why early adopters and VR fans would consider buying into the ecosystem. To truly experience games to the max with Gear VR, besides the phone, VR headset and Oculus store prices you pay, you should also consider getting a Bluetooth controller or gamepad. But the games and the experience might be worth it to you with the early access Oculus Concepts offers.

Testing VR games and monitoring their progress and development by being part of the feedback process can be fun and rewarding at the same time. Developers and gamers can work together to create games that fascinate and offer immersive experiences that can be unique to Gear VR. Starting today, developers and Samsung Gear VR owners can access Oculus Concepts and start collaborating within virtual reality.

Developers can begin submitting Gear VR games to the Concepts store, while U.S. customers should be receiving the first shipments of the virtual reality headset. International preorders are also going to be opened, so early adopters from around the world can join in the fun. Provided their wallets are up for the task. The Concepts store is pretty neat, but I’m still not sure anyone except Galaxy S6 owners would feel rewarded with the Gear VR headset.

Helldivers 2 has seen a rapid rise in popularity, presenting both opportunities and challenges for Arrowhead Game Studio. Although one could argue that the studio has produced a modern masterpiece, Helldivers 2 is still prone to persistent connection issues. Players who have shown great patience with the ongoing server issues in the game are now starting to clash, focusing on personal gain instead of uniting for the success of Super Earth.

IGN reported that players are pleading with Arrowhead to include an AFK auto-kick feature on the Helldivers subreddit. This request comes after some players confessed to remaining logged in to continue playing and bypass the unpredictable server connection process. This issue requires an urgent resolution.

The leader of Arrowhead, Johan Pilestedt, was informed about the problem and assured that the developers were investigating the situation. “I have already communicated this to the team,” Pilestedt confirmed. Regarding Helldivers updates, Xbox players are now petitioning Arrowhead to release the game on their platform after comments from Xbox boss Phil Spencer about the game’s exclusivity.

Respawn’s Star Wars Jedi series has garnered significant acclaim from players, with Cal Kestis’ gripping journey of survival serving as a focal point. Actor Cameron Monaghan, renowned for his portrayal of Kestis in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Survivor, has expressed his openness to bringing the character to life in a live-action adaptation. However, Monaghan emphasizes that certain conditions must be met for him to consider reprising the role.

During a panel at FanExpo Vancouver 2024, Monaghan, known for his roles in Shameless and Gotham, provided insight into his perspective. While many actors would eagerly seize any opportunity to join the Star Wars universe, Monaghan’s willingness to portray Kestis in live-action hinges on the narrative significance and continuation of the character’s story. Merely appearing as a superficial presence would not align with his vision; there must be substantial meaning and relevance for Kestis within the context of the story.

As anticipation builds for a potential third installment in the Star Wars Jedi series, Respawn Entertainment’s reported development of a first-person Mandalorian game raises intriguing possibilities. Could Kestis find himself embarking on new adventures within this immersive gaming experience?

Fans are speculating and curious about the possibility of a live-action Star Wars movie starring Dominic Monaghan. Would such a project capture your interest? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
