Enjoy! 😆

Just tried the shareware versions of Quake, Quake II and RTCW in VR... 🤯

Mayoiga (anime): Classic "group of teens experiencing mysterious paranormal events" plot, mixed with psychological elements. The show includes all possible stereotypical characters. Entertaining for sure, but the ending seems rushed.

BOFURI: I Don't Want to Get Hurt, so I'll Max Out My Defense (anime);

Hard not to be biased, since I am a huge fan of VR and MMOs. I like how this show depicts many of the social interactions I witnessed in old school MMOs, like Ultima Online or Tibia. There's basically no plot, it just follows the game-life of this OP player. It's full of laughing material. It's really easy to enjoy it for what it is.

Ocean Waves (film); It's not easy to explain why is so enjoyable. I think Studio Ghibli did a great work animating the novel. The world and characters feel so real. It's loaded with nostalgia, as well.

Sword Art Online: Alicization - War of Underworld (anime); Watch it, only if you are a fan of the series already. That's it, oh, good visuals!

Ni no Kuni (film); Beautiful ghibli-like visuals and soundtrack by Joe Hisaishi. The plot is entertaining but, somehow, some aspects feel a bit bland and underdeveloped. I haven't played any of the games, so I might be missing something.

I would still recommend to anyone looking for a different twist in the Isekai genre.

Higurashi When They Cry (anime); didn't seem like a good show at first but, since I have a soft spot for horror stories, I kept watching it. To my surprise, the way it tells the same stories from different characters POV, and how everything starts connecting and making sense as you learn more about the characters, was actually quite interesting and entertaining.

Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn (OVA); a great example of how rich the Gundam universe is. Excellent visuals, characters and plot.
