Fallout 4 VR

It’s been centuries since the first atomic bomb was dropped and the player was left in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. This is a first person action, role playing and story driven scavenger game where the player roams the open world collecting objects to survive and fight. Rely on good ol ‘Pip-Boy 3000 to navigate the world, check health stats, and character inventory.

Fitness potential

Space scale tracking for Fallout 4 encourages leg movement (wear a smartwatch to count steps!) And the style of the game will pique players’ curiosity about collecting more than fighting, depending on where they are on the map. Mutants will haunt the player and wild hybrids, beasts and humans will motivate the player to fight for his life. Add to weighted gloves or vest for resistance, muscle building and fat burning this impressively designed game will get you really hot.

Turn the table over

Turning water bottles over was a fad that came and went. Now is the time to take the stress off by turning virtual tables and breaking objects! Having a bad day Turn a table over and break things. Got into an argument? Buckle up and turn a table over. Bored? Turn a damn table over, my goodness. Be careful not to turn and break a real one in your room scale!

Fitness potential

Turning tables from the air, also known as controllers, is not realistic. Add some realism to an adult tantrum by wearing weighted gloves to increase resistance and simulate the weight of objects like baseball bats, bottles, food, chairs, and tables. Although the player will flip things over and break them in 5 stages, fitness players will want to use others too VR fitness cardio games in their fitness gaming regime.

This is an Early Access game that equips the player with two lightsabers, red and blue, to slice and dice incoming will-o’-the-wisps or fairies, also red and blue, when attacking. Pay attention to noises and note that their attacks are in a 360 degree direction. The demo version allows players to access levels 1 to 4, while the pay-to-play version unlocks levels to 10.

Fitness potential

For the greatest impact on fitness, players should try playing in the easy mode to measure their skills, then increase the difficulty to the harder settings when they need more intensity. Willowisp’s endless mode (not available in the demo) offers a good upper and lower body workout from sword fighting and foot positioning. Maneuvering will-o’-the-wisps with bombs and their armored reps makes the player crouch and dodge so as not to get hit, which also serves as lower body workout. Warning: Lazy tapping on will-o’-the-wisps or evasive action will not do anything for the body. To get the best practice, crouch to escape a bomb and wield those lightsabers!
