This past weekend, Play Fair NY 2017 invaded the Jacob Javits Center in midtown Manhattan. The ultra kid-friendly environment is a welcome to parents who felt overwhelmed during NYCC in October. Here there were large play areas for kids, toy and game demonstrations, an activity stage, and more, as well as a place to check out Minecraft VR.
Check out some of the photos from the event here below.
A trailer for another upcoming virtual reality game has been released titled Loading Human.
The game is an episodic sci-fi adventure game set in the 22nd century, and it is being developed for both PlayStation VR and Oculus Rift, which is a good thing considering some of the VR games we’ve seen have been exclusive to only one of the various headsets on the way—not a good sign for those who are excited about the technology but don’t have the means to buy a pile of VR headsets so they can play them all.

This week, Facebook‘s CEO wants to be the next Tony Stark, GM invests in Lyft, Twitter wants you to tweet longer, Oculus Rift gets a price and date, the latest from CES 2016 … all this and more on The Drill Down podcast.
Motion gaming was all set to be the next big thing a while back. But instead of getting the kinds of games we thought we were going to get, most of what we got was, well…crap, to put it bluntly, and it never took off like it was supposed to.
Now the NEXT big thing fast approaches: virtual reality! For years we’ve been seeing cool tech demos and videos of YouTube of people enjoying VR such as the Oculus Rift in various ways, but soon we’ll be seeing it go mainstream, with games developed solely for VR play. One such title is called The Climb, and it comes from developer Crytek, makers of the original Far Cry, the Crysis series, Ryse: Son of Rome, and Warface.
