First Oculus Gaming Showcase Announced

Although there's already a bevy of gaming events held each year, that hasn't stopped individual developers and publishers from launching their own. The same can now be said of Facebook and Oculus, which has revealed an upcoming Oculus-centered event coming this month.

Called the Oculus Gaming Showcase, the new event will be held for the first time on April 21 at 3 pm PT. The event will be streamed for free on standard video streaming services like YouTube and Twitch, letting those who already own headsets or are interested in what virtual reality technology has to offer an opportunity to take a peek.

Oculus has stated that several upcoming games and existing games will be highlighted at the event, including Pistol Whip, Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy's Edge, and with appearances and updates from developers like ILMxLAB and Cloudhead Games. The reveal also claims that a few 'surprises' are planned, which begs the question as to what Oculus may be planning that hasn't already been revealed.

While Zuckerberg has stated that the Oculus Quest 3 is already in development, it's unlikely that the headset will be revealed at the Oculus Gaming Showcase. The Oculus Quest 2 is still flying off of shelves, though Facebook will likely continue to push the technology to its next level in the future to appeal to new and returning buyers. However, between the current high sales and the ongoing shortage of electronic components impacting gaming devices from PCs to next-gen consoles, virtual reality fans shouldn't hold their breath for an Oculus Quest 3 just yet.

For too long gamers have had to live under the inaccurate stereotype that being a gamer means being lazy or unhealthy. When gamers are depicted in TV shows, they're typically overweight, snacking, and unmoving from their chairs. The reality is that this couldn't be further from the truth.

Since VR became commonplace, gamers are getting up and working out more than ever! While the frequent misconception may be that VR is still "just playing games," VR workouts are no joke! Between fitness games and workout subscriptions, gamers break as much of a sweat as the gym rats do, without even leaving the house.

This slow-motion bullet hell game lets players battle to the death in exhilarating close combat. The player may duel other real-life players or skilled bots alike with spectating friends nearby.

Focus, stamina, and strategic ability will be the game savers here as the player continually learns new moves and racks up combos. Weapon classes evolve as the ranks are climbed and the development team prides themselves on the game's core concept of continuous motion. By the end, the player may not come out victorious over their opponent, but they will always come out sweating.

An extreme sports platformer based in an entertainment show, Sprint Vector never has a dull moment. This adrenaline-fueled experience will get the player's heart pumping and sweat pouring as they race against eight other players for the championship.

The elements that Sprint Vector lacks are typically overlooked as everyone is too busy ducking, diving, dipping, and dodging to notice. This is a game that likely won't be forgotten, largely because the next day the players' arms and shoulders will be absolutely worn out from playing... and then they will sit down and play again.
