So you just bought the new, all-powerful Meta Quest 3. The Quest Store has a huge amount of compatible videogames and apps available but really, you want to test Quest 3’s capabilities. And that means unlocking its mixed reality (MR) potential. But which titles support the full-colour passthrough and which are even worth playing? So here are the best mixed reality games currently available for Quest 3.
Cubism is one of the best puzzle games on Meta Quest, the brainchild of indie developer Thomas Van Bouwel. This past year Van Bowel has been teasing his latest project, a mixed-reality game evoking classic spy and heist movie scenarios of carefully navigating laser grids. Called Laser Dance, the game is now slated for a 2024 release on Meta Quest.
Most games tend to have puzzles of some sort in them but that doesn’t make them puzzle games. A true puzzler needs to have more than ‘find the switch to open the next door’ ideas. They need to be engaging, thought-provoking and head-scratching all at once. So here are XR Source’s best VR puzzle games.
Virtual reality (VR) is an awesome entertainment medium which has dramatically improved over the last few years. While the original entry point wasn’t exactly cheap or necessarily practical for a lot of people the arrival of Meta Quest 2 has opened up the technology to a much wider user base. Its portability, inside-out tracking, 6DoF controllers and hand tracking allow for instantly immersive gameplay. However, for those fresh to VR choosing the right experience can mean the difference between a lifelong passion or instant dislike. Hence why XR Source has chosen these Quest 2 games for VR beginners.
We’ve all faced the dilemma when sitting down to play a videogame and you find that the controller is dead. Whether that’s because you’ve forgotten to charge the damn thing or those cheap AA batteries you picked up only managed to last a few paltry hours. If you’ve got a Meta Quest 2 virtual reality (VR) headset then there’s always a third option for that gaming fix, hand tracking.
