Snowball Fight! – Vidjagame Apocalypse 449

December is here and the snow is upon (some of) us, so this week, we’re taking a look at games that let us step back from the action, take a deep breath, and nail someone real good with a snowball. Then we’ll get into early impressions of Halo Infinite, jump belatedly into Solar Ash, get excited for Dr. Dre in GTA Online, and hear your thoughts on whether PlayStation Plus and Games with Gold should stick around.

Question of the Week: What’s your price limit for console accessories? (And what’s the most expensive one you’ve bought?)

  1. QotW: I think my price limit for accessories is $75 which I guess makes sense as that is the current price of the new console ones. I guess the most I spent on accessories is for the Joycons which I’ve had to buy multiple times due to dift.

  2. QOTW: Historically, my limit has been $140, assuming the original Rock Band bundle minus $60 for the disc counts. I’ll probably blow this out of the water when PSVR2 comes out, which I expect will be at least $300.
    Of course, both of these are surpassed by my ~$400 and growing amiibo collection, not that any of them get used as accessories with any regularity.

  3. QoTW: PC gamer flight sim enthusiast here. When I built my PC my goal was to play Microsoft Flight Simulator in VR. I purchased a VR headset,
    Honeycomb Alpha yoke, a Honeycomb Bravo Throttle Quadrant, and Thrustmaster rudder pedals. All I spent $1300 on accessories, 250 a piece for the honeycomb gear and 150 for the pedals. I use an HP Reverb G2 VR headset (yes, it’s a mouthful) which offered the highest resolution display at the time of purchase . After tax and shipping this was also $650, but has zero screendoor effect and is clear enough I can read the gauges without sticking my head out like a turtle. It was a lot of money but it is far and away the most immersive gaming/sim experience ever. The cost is justified to me because a few years ago I was taking lessons to get a private pilot license but had to stop because I became a dad and had to change directions financially. Flight Sim in VR is the next best thing.
