VR Gaming with KOR-FX – Let’s Play Alien Isolation!

Here’s the long and short of it: I don’t play scary games. I’m a huge wimp and I know my limits, thank you very much. Yet, I keep getting called back to play those kinds of titles while wearing the KOR-FX Immersive Gaming Vest… and I keep agreeing. Why? Because despite my crushing wimpiness, I actually have a lot of fun with it.


When I was first asked to try out the vest, the team set me up to play the Silent Hills demo, P.T.

(THANKS, GUYS.) Playing the game was terrifying. Feeling the game was an entirely different beast, as evidenced by the image below.

This time around,  I suited up to play Alien Isolation. Not exactly a “scary” game, but scary enough for me. I was thrown in at about the 40-minute mark and though I didn’t encounter a huge amount of actual Aliens at that point, I almost didn’t need to. The vest allowed me to experience a real level of tension that was both nerve-racking and exhilarating. Check out some of the highlights from my playthrough and see why my mom is so proud of me:
