(Event) My Gaming Experience at VR Lab, SS2, Malaysia

Hi lovelies,

I don't know if I have mentioned to you, I am a part time gamer too. The noob type! :)
No la, not sure if I am even qualified to call or label myself as a gamer, yet, coz of my recent busy schedule and more time away from my laptop. But that doesn't stop me from blogging. ^^

What games do I play? I think I like to support indie games but yeah, not really close to my laptop as of lately so I explore android and iPhone games more. If I am with my laptop, and because of my brother's influence, I played quite some manly games. Serious Sam, a lot of indie games, games played by pewdiepie and Dota2 (I only play Imba 10v10 for most of the time)!
Before that I played PS1 or 2, then Heroes of Might and Magic & Dungeon Keeper (with Daddy's influence). Missed playing Dungeon Keeper coz it's so fun! You can train your imps and army, not forgetting to strengthen walls, explore new territory and also torture captives and make them come to your side...if not!
Also played World of Warcraft (WOW) some time and stopped.
More girly games I have played when I was a child was Carmen Sandiego (PC), Rayman (PC), Super Mario etc.

Gaming have come a Loooonnnggg way!

VR is now taking over the gaming world!
When it was just released, gamers on YouTube were so excited.
*even I was shrieking with excitement on the inside!*

I have seen random people (& also Pewdiepie) on YouTube playing horror games via VR tech but when I play, that is a really different story!
*now I know how they feel*

Fear is much closer! More real! Luckily I don't have to feel the pain or not I will really pee my pants or cry or die or really go into "fight or flight" condition and go berserk just to protect myself.

A few of my friends on that day asked me why I don't scream?

My answer is simple and straightforward, "I kept telling myself it is not real!" (and tbh, I can just remove the VR tech anytime when I feel scared!) But to an extent, I was so into the game I cannot really bother what is happening around me! (when I was an archer!) And yes, I think my biggest phobia is to height. Coz they asked me to jump off the building, I just can't do that. Yet. Probably when I go with my siblings, I will feel more comfortable to scream and hopefully break nothing. Coz they are just too expensive.

A little intro to VR Lab Malaysia before I continue further with my stories!

"Your one-stop solution for everything related to Virtual Reality"


This is Datin Shireen, co-founder of VR Lab Malaysia

In case if you aren't sure whether you wanna play, they have a trial game for you to try! ^^
(The one you get into the lift and choose which floor you wanna go to to have a rough idea of how it feels like to be 'in' the game)

This is the  price list for Single VIP room (fits 4 people, just need to take turn), Twin VIP room and also the Membership fees.
In case if you cannot digest the price, lemme break it down for you!
Only RM7.50 per person (that's for happy hour, please refer to the pic above!) for a Single VIP Room  for an hour.

Of course one hour isn't enough as you will be into it, like I did! ^^
So much more affordable comparing to movie tickets etc.
And, you get to workout, body and mind! ^^


Game choices (availability differs from room to room)

Sample of Single VIP Room

Sample of Twin VIP Room

Of course, different rooms have different available games.
For example,


I told my instructor that I'd like to try some shooting games (eg Zombies) with further distance so that it'll be a warm up for me. And, he recommended Brookhaven.
It was simple and nice coz I played the campaign mode.

At first I was a bit panicky coz I couldn't shoot.
So dumb, you know why? Coz I do not have a gun. Only knife. And it was scary to be so near and stabbing the zombie that was like at least 180cm tall without its skin.

For the video of me playing Brookhaven, click HERE. ^^

Although it was fairly easy, I do notice my increased rate of heart beat and slight shivering coz I have to be alert of three different entrance that the zombie may anytime pop in.

After a while, I played Serious Sam.
The monsters were the same from the PC ones I played with baby bro.
Just that, I do not move around that much like how I ran all over the map in PC game.
For the VR version, I basically kill and avoid bullets and stuff shot by enemies. Just kill, accumulate money and buy better weapons and bullets.

But, I gotta tell you, Serious Sam is no joke!
I think right, I need to do some warm up before I start any games coz I am just so used to having moving my hands and fingers, not my legs, so, I've kinda pulled some muscles and walked a bit strange with pain the next day. Lol.
Couch potato problem! XD
But it was all fun coz I don't need to feel pain! ^^ 

Before that, we were also playing a boxing game (video will be up in their Facebook page on the 20th January 2017! Cannot wait!)
Took this short boxing video from my friend's facebook page! ^^

Will definitely be back soon to try Blue Particle & jump off the building with fam! ^^

Selfie sessions with new and old faces !

Nice to meet you guys! It was a fun moment coz VR Lab Malaysia is doing a Mannequin Challenge! ^^

Stayed a bit longer and get to try the jump of f building game and also wefies! ^^

Thanks for making this place a dream come true for me!
I never dreamt of being able to play a VR in real life coz it is so pricey!
