Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-Ality Review

When you think of Rick And Morty, the hit television series on Adult Swim, you think of a fun, sometimes confusing and chaotic experience. There are thousands if not millions of die-hard Rick and Morty fans around the world that may or may not have a platform to play the newest experience from the team over at Adult Swim Games. I bet they’re dying for an opportunity to play through the short but creative experience that is Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality.

Throughout your adventure in this hectic world, you play the role of Morty’s clone. Designed and created by Rick himself, you are put into the infamous garage from the show and immediately are given tasks. Don’t go into the game thinking you’re going to get a task that will hurt your brain too much, but there are some tricky missions.

Some of the tasks given require you to spawn a robotic mirror of yourself. This robot mimics your every move allowing the player to hand items across the room and in some situations out of the garage into a spaceship. The odd jobs given in the game range from doing Rick’s laundry to fixing his spaceship. Some more challenging, and pointless, than others.

As far as replay value for the game, there isn’t much of any. The story will not change if you decide to take it from the top. There is, however, some collectable tapes to find hidden throughout the game. These tapes are pretty hard to find because I only came across about 4 out of 13 and I was searching pretty intensely. Aside from trying to obtain the platinum trophy, which doesn’t seem to hard to get, there are some mini games within the game the you can play. It’s a VR-ception as you play a VR life simulation as clone Morty with different hilarious outcomes. The way you act within the side-game along with the choices you make will lead you to a different experience each time. I wish I could say the same for Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality itself.

Some of the cast that makes the show so great are also included in the game. Justin Roiland, Dan Harmon, Spencer Grammer, Chris Parnell and Sarah Chalke really bring the game together and make you feel truly immersed in the Morty-verse. While not all characters are seen in the game, you can hear dialog from most of the cast. Without the voice acting from the cast, Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality would not be a game based on the show at all.

While some parts of the game weren’t all that entertaining, I found myself laughing out loud throughout most of the experience. The goofy, weird, sometimes scary universe that has been created by the show’s creators, Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon, truly makes for one of the most interesting and hilarious experience out on the PlayStation VR today. If you are a fan of the show and have a PlayStation VR, HTC Vive, or an Oculus Rift then Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality is definitely something you should look into.

Weekly Gaming Update 4/22/18

Man, it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these. Thats not to say that I haven’t been gaming a lot lately, because trust me I have. I just have lost my groove on content creation, but slowly I am getting back into the groove. One of the things that has brought me back is a new game that came out just two days ago.

GOD. OF. WAR. These are three words that before Friday I never thought I’d say I love. This game means business. While I will save a spoiler-filled review for when I finish the game I do want to talk about some general notes I’ve been thinking about. The game came out two days ago and I’ve already sunk about 12 hours into it. This says a lot as I have just started playing it yesterday.

The game both looks and feels great. Graphically it looks amazing on my PS4 Pro that I just got on Friday as I felt the need to upgrade based off of what reviews have said in the past few days. The cutscenes are amazingly choreographed and the one-shot style of them really makes the game seem more cinematic than other games as of late.  While the game looks great, there is nothing more satisfying than launching your Leviathan Axe at an enemy and calling it back to yourself. The rumble on the controller is extremely satisfying.

This is just a few things I want to talk about for the time being, but expect more in the coming weeks as I’m excited to dive in and try and platinum this game. This is rare for me to actually want to platinum a game as I am mostly and Xbox gamer. If you’re on the fence about picking up God of War I highly recommend you read some reviews. I think those will make you jump head first into one of the best games of the year so far.
