SculptrVR, PSVR Review

Okay, it’s not a game.

SculptrVR is something I have seen in other platforms in similar guises and has been something of a surprise for me.

I have to admit, I know little to nothing about Voxel graphics, but I do consider myself somewhat artistic. Neither of these things helped me while I was plugged in to SculptrVR, my artistic confidence went missing as soon as I realised the scope of what was on offer and my puny human brain couldn’t quite capture the grandness of what I could achieve with 3D Voxel modelling.

The 2018 Player2 Charity Marathon – back for thirdsies

Yes, we’re plugging another blog, but for a great reason and besides it’s a community thing and together we can make a village or something, in Minecraft at least.

After a successful charity event last year, the Player 2 team are coming back once again to raise money for the Terry Campese Foundation. Last year the team raised over $3700 for the charity, every cent of which went to helping sick and underprivilege families from the Canberra and Southern NSW regions.

This year the crew aim to beat that mark and are looking at the possibility of reaching $4000.

Sorry for the gap between posts Team KC, but I have a goodie for you this time, especially for you Playstation Gamers out there.

THIS WEEK it’s Sacred Symbols: A Playstation Podcast from gaming media veteran Colin Moriarty. Right or Left Politics and online controversy stuff aside, Colin is still one of the great deep thinkers in Video Games and it is a pleasure to have him back sharing his thoughts about all things Playstation.

Detroit: Become Human – Robots and Toasters.

Time for another guest article from Nina, who last time bought us some deeper thoughts on Hellblade. This time around some casual musings on the Playstation exclusive Detroit:Become Human.

In typical David Cage fashion, Detroit: Become Human tackles some touchy social issues including race relations and equality, but what I found most compelling about the game was how it tackled some philosophical issues that involve the collective mindsets of humanity, the nature of machines with Artificial Intelligence and what the true definition of ‘alive’ is.

Hey there Team KC, time for a Video Games podcast that can hit your ears on a daily basis.

THIS WEEK it’s Kinda Funny Games Daily from the Kinda Funny Team. Since the departure of Colin Moriarty from Kinda Funny, I have struggled to stick with them, however with the recent additions of industry vets -Andrea Renee, Gary ‘The Rogue One’ Whitta and Jared Petty…the whole show/platform has had a new lease of life as a result.

THIS WEEK it’s Guardian Radio -Now, I love Destiny, but like much of the player base, I have moved onto other things for the time being. That said, Bungie is quietly…and slowly…working away on improvements.

So, to keep up with the patches and changes, I still tune in every week to the Guardians to hear what the latest patches hold and where the ‘meta’ is going.

If you are a Destiny fan who plans to return at some stage, these guys are still a fun listen.

Righto KC team, this weeks podcast isn’t Video Games related. It is actually care of the BBC. However, it is not crusty, old and behind the times. In fact, listening to this 20min podcast will have you up to speed on all sorts of issues of the day.

As always, it flows both ways. Make sure you hit me up on Twitter @nzBrowncoat  or in the comments with your own favorite listens.

THIS WEEK it’s The Inquiry from the BBC World Service.
