Well, it’s time to face reality. Summer (and the school holidays) are officially over! However, it’s not all bad news. While you may not be able to hit the beach everyday or relax at home, it’s still a great time to get excited for the year ahead. What are you looking forward to? What do you want to accomplish in 2016? If being back at school has you down in the dumps, check out our top 10 reasons why being back at school is awesome on page 7 – it’s guaranteed to make you feel better. We’ve also got a back to school special in this issue. Head to page 26 to discover how to make this year your best yet, the hottest school supplies and awesome book labels you’ll need to beautify your exercise books. But wait, there’s more!

How embarrassing! Check out this month’s totally OMG moments…

wrong register

I went shopping at Christmas time with my family in Kmart. We were all rushing around, buying presents and stocking fillers. I was picking up some chocolate for us and when I was done, I saw my mum at the register already paying. I didn’t want her to leave without the yummy treats I’d picked out, so I ran up behind her and put my items on the register. She turned around... and it wasn’t my mum! I was so totally embarrassed, I ran away as quickly as I could - I even left my food there! It was bad, I was so shocked!

cousin crushin’

slippery skipper

I have a huge crush on a boy who plays in my brother’s football team. He is so cute! During a sleepover, I told my best friend, Renae that I really liked him and that she was not allowed to tell anyone. I didn’t think anymore about it, but when we went back to school after the holidays, she told another friend of ours, Julia, about my crush! I didn’t really mind too much, but then Renae told me that my crush is actually Julia’s cousin! How embarrassing!

I was at my neighbours place with a whole group of friends playing with the skipping rope in the front yard. There were some boys from around the corner who rode by on their bikes and started talking to us. While they were talking to my neighbour, the rest of us kept skipping rope. When it was my turn to run in, I was sort of halflistening to their conversation and I ran in at the wrong time, tripping over the rope and skinning my knee! Everyone turned to look and I was trying so hard not to cry!

bottle-nosed I went to the Taylor Swift concert with my bestie and her older sister. We were waiting for Taylor to come on when my bestie’s sister asked me to throw her my water bottle to keep in her bag. I did as she said... but the bottle hit her right in the nose! I was so shocked, but I also wanted to burst out laughing. I had to hold it in and be serious while I asked her if she was ok. It was so awkward I went bright red!

Lisa, 11, vic

hopes crushed My mum was dropping me off at school one morning and she has a really loud voice. As I was getting out of the car I spotted a boy in my class who I have a crush on. She kissed me goodbye, which was embarrassing enough and then spotted my crush. She said, “Oh Hope, isn’t that the boy you were telling me was cute?” He saw the whole thing and started blushing. Later on, we were in class together and his friends came up to me and asked me if I liked him! Awkward!

Celeb Whoa! Moment Gigi accidentally grabbed Frankie Jonas’ bum once! The group of friends walked into a dark, crowded restaurant and she thought it was Joe next to her. “I went to grab his butt to move him along and it was Frankie!” she spills, “I love Frank. We are homies, but that was another level of bonding for us!”

giggle-o-rama! I was sitting in class one day and my teacher had just given out a worksheet. I was doing the questions when I suddenly remembered something really funny from lunch. I started laughing to myself silently, but because I was trying not to laugh, it was making more of a scene and I got in trouble! It was so embarrassing!

loving... Ansel Elgort ansel’s big break Ansel Elgort is an American actor known mostly for his roles in The Fault in Our Stars and the Divergent movie series. He has one sister, one brother and his dad, Arthur, is a famous fashion photographer. After auditioning for the American School of Ballet when he was nine, Ansel went to a performing arts school where he took acting classes and starred in a few musicals. His first big break into the film industry was a small part in the remake of vintage horror flick, Carrie and the following year was cast to play Caleb in The Divergent Series films. Ansel has played both of his most famous roles to date alongside actress, Shailene Woodley. So, do the pair get along really well? He says, ”Shailene and I share a certain love, but it’s a friendship love.” Aww!

a good role model He understands that with fame comes a responsibility to do the right thing by his fans. Ansel spills, “There are some celebrities who have millions and millions of people following them [online] and they don’t lead by example.” He recommends fans follow The Fault in Our Stars author, John Green on social media. “He leads by example and he encourages millions of people to do good things. And there are people who don’t, and it’s a waste, y’know?” Ansel says. Ansel’s acting career is just getting started! He’s got a few projects in the works for the year ahead, including a starring role in the film, November Criminals, alongside Chloë Moretz. He's also wrapped filming for the third movie in The Divergent Series, with Allegiant, Part 1 set to hit the movie screens everywhere later on in 2016. While the star is super busy, he remains calm about his future. “I’m not really too worried about what I’m gonna do next, because I just think of my career as, like, having sixty years ahead of me,” he says, “I still have my entire twenties to make movies. I’m in no hurry.”

Full Name: Ansel Elgort born: 14th March, 1994 fun Facts:  He’s got a reputation for revealing movie spoilers for the films he is acting in during interviews  He has a pet dog named Galo  Ansel loves basketball and is a big New York Knicks fan  He is a DJ and records his own dance music under the name, Ansolo  Ansel cried when he read The Fault in Our Stars novel  He is a fan of reality TV cooking shows

You saw this cute couple light up the stage each week on The X Factor, but now that the reality TV wild ride is over, Jess and Matt have revealed they are more in love than ever before. Matt spilled, “We really learnt who we were together on the show.” Jess added, “It definitely brought us closer together, with just the pressure and everything we went through.” The pair also said while they were totally loved up, they want to focus on their music and have no plans to get married anytime soon. Ohhhkaaay!

When Ed came to Oz and did a guest appearance on The Voice with pal Jessie J, Ed asked her to tell Delta that he was crushing on her when he was only 13. Ed later explained his attraction to The Voice judge, “She was a really good songwriter and a really good singer and it didn’t hurt that she wasn’t that ugly.” Cute!

victorious reunited!

This totally awesome Nick series didn’t really have a proper ending, so you can forgive us for holding on to hope for a Victorious reunion episode, right? The social media rumour mill was sent into overdrive recently, as images appeared online of Victoria Justice, Ariana Grande and the rest of the main cast enjoying a cozy onesie slumber party! Leon Thomas, who played Andre, posted a pic with the caption, “It was great kicking it with old friends tonight. #victoriousforever #lotsofloveintheroom.” Keep your fingers crossed!

#throwback to justin and selena

Justin Bieber has spilled on why his relationship with songstress, Selena Gomez didn’t work. He said in a recent interview, “I just want her to be happy.” The Sorry singer added, “I love [Selena]. We’re friends still. We needed time to grow for ourselves and we were like, ‘Maybe we’ll come back together in the future,’ and then it ended up being so long and we just grew apart and we’re not the same people anymore.” Awww!

maddie ziegler to leave dance moms!

Reports have surfaced that Maddie Ziegler will be leaving Dance Moms after the end of the current series! Sources close to the pint-sized perfomer suggest that she has her “sights set on Hollywood” and bigger acting roles, leaving her no time to film the series that made her famous. It comes as no real surprise, as Maddie has been landing a heap of acting roles. She’s due to star in The Book of Henry, a film due for release this year.

Rowan’s a good friend!

The Girl Meets World star always lends an ear to her loved-up pals. She said,“I’ve seen it happen with people when they’ll have a crush on somebody and that person will lead them on, but actually won’t like them back; it sucks, and I’m usually always there for my friends when that happens.” She’s a super best friend!

gregg and bella’s xmas Bella Thorne and her boyfriend, Gregg Sulkin spent their first Christmas together in the U.S! It was Gregg’s first away from his family. The pair wished fans on Bella’s Instagram with a cute pic of themselves and Bella’s pup, Kingston. Fun!

After her much-loved schnauzer, Midnight, passed away last year, Zendaya was thrilled to receive a new puppy on Christmas Eve! She posted a pic of her new dog, Noon, on Instagram with a post that said that Noon was a “beautiful gift... right when [she] needed it most.” Aw! 15

Sound Choice

She’s released some catchy tunes over the years, but Victoria has hit a few bumps in the road lately when it comes to her music. She recently parted ways with her record company, but hasn’t given up her music dreams just yet. She’s got plenty of unheard songs ready to be released! “I miss performing so much. I miss being on stage and being able to share my music with people,” she spilled. “Whether I sign to another label, I’m not sure, but I might just release stuff on my own just so my fans can hear it and I can share that with the world.” We hope she does!

victoria on... …Believing in yourself:

“Never let anyone take away your dream.” …Being comfortable with who you are:

“It’s nice to just embrace the natural beauty within you.” …Making sacrifices:

charitable chick


Victoria is really conscious of the world around her. Helping others who are in need is something that’s really important to her. She’s spoken out against texting and driving, supported the Race to Erase MS and various other charities. She’s also worked with the United Nations on a campaign called Girl Up, which protects the human rights of girls and gives them access to education. Victoria said, “I am proud to be a Girl Up Champion and to use my voice to give back.” She personally raised nearly $20,000 for them through her music. How awesome is that?


She scored her very own show, Victorious alongside Ariana Grande!


Victorious and iCarly teamed up to do a crossover episode, iParty with Victorious.


Vic dropped a couple of successful singles in 2012, and scored the lead role in Fun Size.

With Taylor’s 1989 World Tour all wrapped up, TayTay will have some well deserved time off to spend with her DJ boyfriend, Calvin. We predict these two will chill at home, watch movies, order take out and hang out with Tay’s cute cats, Meredith and Olivia. All hail Tayvin!

Dom Sherwood & Sarah Hyland

Although these two became best friends on the set of Vampire Academy, it wasn’t until 2015 that Woodland (as their fans call them), gave romance a shot. Sarah and Dom got matching tattoos and they even adopted a puppy named Boo. V-Day for these two will likely be a hike in LA with Boo and Sarah’s adorable dog, Barkley Bixby.


Bella Thorne and Gregg Sulkin

Bella and Gregg we re friends for more than six yea rs before becoming an item an d it shows. These two are glued at the hip and do ev erything together, from premie res to road trips.

Congrats on scoring a lead role in Disney Under the Stars! Tell us about the shows…How did you score the gig? “Thank you so much! Well – Chong Lim (the musical director) actually called me a couple of months ago and said he had two questions for me. Firstly, he asked if I was around in Feb/March 2016. I am usually in the U.S at that time – but I said ‘If it was for something fun I could rearrange my schedule and leave later.’ His second question was, ‘Would you be interested in doing a live outdoor concert singing Disney songs?’ and without hesitation I said ‘Absolutely!’ As we all did, I grew up watching Disney movies and singing Disney songs…I y e n is n catch D think the first performance ca u o y ere rt: Here’s wh e Stars in Conce I ever did was in front of th r e d n U my aunties and uncles : 7 2 ry a and grandparents in my Sat Febru era House Nana’s lounge room Steps’ Op ney e Th n ‘O rt, Syd singing all of the songs Forecou from The Lion King!

m Disney gig! What songs are you most excited to sing? “Definitely, A Whole New World from Aladdin…not just because it was my favourite song as a kid… it’s still one of my favourite songs of all time! It’s an amazing melody, a stunning duet and the lyrics are so dreamy! I can’t wait to walk out on stage and sing it live for the first time ever! I’m also really excited about singing Let It Go – because I know that is the new classic for all the kids so they will be very excited to hear that!” You’ve done TV, radio and your own live music tours, how is Disney Under the Stars a different experience? “This will be an entirely different experience – on the radio and on TV, I am just talking. And in my own shows I am singing my own songs that I have written – and I like to change things up and strip songs back and sing them differently to the CD... I never do any two shows the same. But in this show we have the responsibility to sing these iconic songs that everyone in the crowd has grown up listening to – and they will want to hear them as they remember them. So, we feel like it’s an honour and a privilege to do this

Songstress, Ricki-Lee gave us the scoop on her latest project – a live concert jam-packed with classic Disney songs!

show, and we will all be walking out on that stage extremely proud and incredibly excited to sing these songs. I think we will all be really, really nervous before we step out on to the stage!” What is your fave Disney movie of all time? “That’s such a hard question, I have two! Aladdin – because I love that Princess Jasmine falls in love with a street kid. And the bottom line of the story is that it doesn’t matter where you come from, true love always finds it’s way if you are an honest, good person. I also love The Lion King

– because it’s a story of courage. I love how Simba is this curious little lion who gets in a little bit of trouble, he loses himself for a while but he comes to his senses and rights the wrongs that were done to him and his family.” If you could be any Disney princess, who would you be? Can you tell us why? “Princess Jasmine! That castle she lived in was spectacular! She’s also got such an amazing singing voice, she is so in love with Aladdin and they are living happily ever after!”

ig Get Active always try and do things to fit in with the crowd, but be strong and don’t worry about what other people are doing or what they are wearing.”

Socceroos legend, Tim Cahill shares his top tips to achieving greatness on the sporting field. Read on to be inspired… Involve your besties: “Everything is about confidence. It’s ok if you’re at the back of the class, you might be shy, but don’t be afraid to try something new with a friend or a brother or sister.” Have a positive attitude: “Playing sport is about taking part and being active. People think it’s all about being the best but I think it’s important that you build fundamental skills and have fun.”

Be a strong person: “I grew up being told I would never make it and I’ve made it and done anything and everything I’ve wanted to do. Everything is mental. In any sport, or job or schoolwork you do, if you’re not mentally prepared, that can lead you to make bad choices.” Stand out from the crowd: “Try new things. If it doesn’t work out, don’t let yourself get too low. People will

Believe in yourself: “I love working with the girls because in Australian soccer and other sports it’s unbelievable. They are so talented and so raw that they can play any sport they want to.” Avoid the stereotype: “It’s about getting out there and enjoying it. It’s about taking away the persona. You don’t have to be any certain way to play sport. It’s about having a go, taking part and being active.”

Tim Cahill: ‘Girls can be amazing in every sport!’

Confidence is cool: “Be confident! A lot of the girls that I have worked with are just amazing. They are fun, they are giggly and even the shy ones – once you knock down a barrier it’s unbelievable what you can expose!” Work as a team: “Girls, I think are better in groups. Girls actually like to have fun. Young people need to remember it’s not about one person being the best; it’s about everyone making it and helping each other.”

New Year, new you! Try these handy tips and tricks

Planning in


Think about what you’d like to achieve this year. Do you want the best grades? Do you want to make some new friends? How will you make these things happen? Write down a list of your goals for 2016 and put your list in a place you will always see it. The list will help keep you on track and motivate you to be the best you can be!

Shopping for


If you love stationery as much as we do at IGHQ, you’ll understand that choosing the right supplies for school is super-important! If you’re allowed to, get a pencil case that is colourful and fun, as well as pencils and stationery which you will want to use all year long. This will help you to get excited about doing homework, even when you might not want to.

Organisation is


Make sure you write down any homework or projects you’ve got to do and when they are due on a calendar or in your diary. Try not to leave things for the last minute – you don’t want to be stressed and risk doing a bad job! If you’ve got a lot of tasks coming up, it’s a good idea to get the hard stuff over and done with first, so then, if you’re tired or you’re running out of time, you can breeze through the easy-peasy tasks at the end.

Be a good


If you’re keen to make new friends or start the year off on the right foot, being a positive, approachable friend is the best way to go. If you’ve got a smile on your face and you go out of your way to be friendly, you’ll feel good and everyone will want to be around you. Sounds like a lot of fun! 26

to se



to set you up for the best school year yet…



Your bedroom or the place where you do most of your homework is really important. You’ll feel way more organised if your desk is tidy and there’s no clutter. Keep a notepad on your desk with a to-do list. Look at it each day and when you cross something off, take a moment to celebrate!




It’s the most important meal of the day! Make sure you load up on a filling and nutritious breakfast before you head off to school. A good meal in the morning will help you to wake up and will brighten your mood. Breakfast also increases your ability to learn and will help you to stay focused in class.

Have a good


They say, ‘A Sunday well spent brings a week of content’ – which pretty much means that if you have a good Sunday, the rest of the week will be great, too! Get yourself ready for the week ahead by laying out your school uniform the night before and having an early night so you’re energised and ready to tackle the week head on.

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places that you’ll go! - Dr Seuss

After hosting Saturday Disney here in Oz, Naomi scored her very own show on the Disney Channel, Evermoor Chronicles! We spoke to her about her awesome rise to fame. Check it out!

disney's newest diva:

Naomi Sequeira

Congrats on your lead role in Evermoor Chronicles! What has been the highlight for you so far? “I would have to say just acting and being able to do what I love... also working on the craft on the show and my acting skills!”

Was it hard going from a TV presenter role to an acting one? “It was a lot easier for me because I find that acting is more of a love for me. I think when you love something, it comes easier to you.

But, it was great doing presenting back home because it helped me with my confidence and got me used to being on set.” Are you and Tara from Evermoor alike? “Yeah! I’d say that were both quite confident, although we have our moments! Also, she’s a bit of a tomboy and I can definitely relate to that as well! The way that I dress is quite tomboy-ish and I think my attitude too… growing up I was always hanging with my older brother so naturally I have some tomboy-ish behaviour!” Who is your closest friend on set? “Georgie Glen is her name in real life, but I call her Aunt Bridget! [That is Georgie's character in Evermoor]. We had so much fun when we were on set, we would always sing together and we went on a road trip together in England while we were both there. I miss her when we aren’t filming!”

r o o m r e v E s e l ic n Chro

What made you fall in love with the script? “I think it was the whole magical element and the character. I was so happy that I got to audition for such a strong, great role model... and it was cool to have magical powers I guess, too! It was a huge responsibility being the lead in Evermoor but it was good to commit to it and do lots of research and perform my best everyday!”

Allegiant Part 1 Out march 10

Join Tris and Four on another epic adventure in The Divergent Series. They embark on a journey outside their comfort zone, leaving behind friends and family in order to save the city. Tris and Four battle a whole new range of people and find themselves in difficult situations where they cannot trust anyone.

Zootopia out march 17

This Disney flick is shaping up to be a mustsee! In Zootopia, the mammal metropolis, Judy Hopps is the first rabbit to join the police force and is desperate to prove herself. She jumps at the chance to solve a mysterious case - but it won't be easy, as she is teamed up with foxy con-artist, Nick Wilde.

one minute with...

fun bites

The latest movie goss... ● Zootopia's leading character, Nick Wilde was largely based on the character of Robin Hood, who was also portrayed as a fox in the original Disney film. ● If you look closely in the film, Big Hero 6 you can see some pretty cool references to Zootopia! Honey Lemon's phone case is an image of the main character in Zootopia and you can see a poster for the movie when Baymax and Hiro fly under the train tracks. How cool is that? ● Allegiant is the third instalment in The Divergent Series. It will be the first time that audiences will see Four as a child and Tris will have chin-length hair, just like it was written in the Divergent books. ● Allegiant follows Harry Potter, Twilight and The Hunger Games in being the fourth franchise to split a story into two parts.

Theo James

Theo plays Four in the latest Divergent series flick, Allegiant, Part 1. Check it out!

Theo! Can you describe the relationship Tris and Four have to us? “They're co-dependent, in a good way. Tris is in no way the damsel in distress but that doesn't detract from Four being a masculine character. They're two people in love but broken by the situation they're in. They are both genuinely in love.”

Can we expect a big difference between the book and the film? “I think it’s gonna be pretty similar. I think the luxury of this one is that we have time to tell the book over two movies. I think, if anything, it’ll be the material in the book, but then added [material] as well. There will be more stuff because we have more time to tell the story.”

J.G. Quintel

The creator of the Regular Show spilled on how the cartoon came about! His big break into the animation world… “At the time I was working on Marvellous Misadventures of Flapjack for Cartoon Network as the Creative Director, and then Cartoon Network started the ‘Cartoonstitute’, a shorts programme where they were looking for new shorts. They asked me if I wanted to pitch anything and I pitched them an idea for Regular Show, they let me make a pilot and then it turned into the show premiere!” On playing the role of Mordecai… “Being there and doing the voice acting with real professionals who are trained, you realise that they are so talented. I don’t have much range, I can just use my regular voice, pretty much, but I remember it was really funny trying to learn how to yell. Because I’m a pretty calm person in real life, I don’t ever yell, but Mordecai yells all the time, when they get into crazy situations. I can do it now, but it was weird at first!” What it's like working for Cartoon Network? “It’s the best place I’ve ever worked at as far as creative freedom goes. I mean, for my pilot it literally was that I pitched the board and they said 'Great, make it!' Then as far as the show goes, whatever we come up with they’re always up for us making an episode about. We’ve never been told 'Oh, that’s too weird' or 'that’s too extreme', or anything like that. They’re very supportive of any ideas we come up with and help us to get it along to the end, so it’s been a great experience.”

Stooshe are a British girl band made up of three members, Courtney, Karis and Alexandra.

The girls were lucky enough to support Jennifer Lopez on a tour a few years ago! “When we found out we screamed,” revealed Alexandra. “She has reinvented herself and she knows how to put on a show. I think I [was] more excited about watching her than performing with her.” A dream come true!

Working together is really important to the girls... “Even when it comes to creating, writing dance routines, we all have to be there together, and bounce off each other's ideas. We can't do it by ourselves. We're lost by ourselves!” says Alexandra.

Stooshe are all about girl power! Alexandra adds, “We think girls shouldn’t conform to a certain way or look by what is perceived to be beautiful. Be what inspires you and have fun doing it!” We agree!

Say what?!

Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon (3DS) This interesting spin-off to the main Pokémon series takes you out of the shoes of a trainer and allows you to play as one of the colourful critters. You then make your way through randomly-generated dungeons, fighting it out in classic-turn based style with enemies, using items and exploring for loot. With lots to discover, this new game is plenty of fun to be had here for fans of the series.


Unravel (PS4, XBO, PC) This incredibly cute sidescrolling platformer follows a ball of wool who has come to life and is exploring the wonders of the world. This little guy, called Yarny, unwinds as he moves, leaving a trail of wool behind him. We love the way the levels make you use this trail of yarn in fun, inventive ways to get past obstacles. And we love the sweet story and amazing real-world environments.


HOT OR NOT There’s some games we simply cannot wait to play, and others you have to Frisbee to find the fun.

Gravity Rush Remastered (PS4)

Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 (PS4, XBO, PC)

Originally released on the Vita, this amazing adventure game stars the beautiful and strong Kat, a girl with no memory who's given the power to control gravity. When the world gets broken apart by a gravity storm, she can fly between the floating islands, changing which way is down whenever she likes. The game is part adventure, part RPG, with levelling-up, sidequests and lots to discover.

The Naruto anime series could have made for a big adventure or a deep RPG in video game form, but instead the developer has gone for a fighter. The huge arenas, massive cast of characters, long story and over-the-top combat is all done really well, but there’s one problem. All you really do in the end is just kick and hit people in the head as hard as you can... which gets boring quickly.

Dear Diary, I Think I`m sick of this reality. The biggest thing in video gaming this year is going to be Virtual Reality and news about new headsets is coming in thick and fast. Here is the latest and greatest gossip... Oculus Rift

PlayStation VR

The first and best known of the three big headsets coming in 2016 has had a number of interesting developments over the last month. Firstly, we’ve now seen the controllers for the first time. They’re called the Oculus Touch, and it’s a very cool looking motion-based device that comes in two parts; one for each hand. As you hold them, you can move naturally to get actions to happen in virtual reality. The only bad news is that the controllers will not be ready for the launch of the headset in autumn, but instead will arrive later in 2016.

Until now, we had assumed the PlayStation VR would plug straight into the PlayStation 4 so you could start playing games in virtual reality, but it turns out that is not true. Instead, it will come with its own console-like box that is about the same size as the first Nintendo Wii. So the PlayStation VR headset will connect to this first box, which then connects to the PS4. This new box will provide the power to run the virtual reality on its own, which is actually great. It leaves the PS4 free to run games at normal speed and for you to play multiplayer games where one person is in virtual reality, and the others are using the TV in the same game. Expect this one in autumn, too.

In other Oculus Rift news, we now know that the super cute 3D platforming adventure, Lucky Tales will come for free with every headset. This is pretty awesome as space MMO Eve: Valkyrie was already coming for free if you pre-ordered the headset, as was an Xbox One controller. It ensures that those who pick up the headset on launch day will have plenty of gaming to enjoy straight away. are62you game? are you game? are you game? are you game? are you game?are y

. HTC Vive The third of the big three virtual reality headsets expected to arrive this autumn is looking like it could be the most powerful. It has the best resolution, and the most power behind it. However, it is also the most secretive and we haven’t been told too much about it. Recently, however, the creators of the headset came out and revealed why the headset was delayed from its planned launch at the end of 2015. Apparently, they made a huge technological discovery that was so important they decided to scrap the existing headset and start again from scratch. We don’t know what that discovery was, but we cannot wait to find out!

Newly Revealed Virtual Reality Games Eagle Flight: Made by the developer behind Assassin’s Creed, this game will allow you to feel what it is like to glide through the skies as a bird.

The Climb: This thrilling title has you scaling up the sides of cliffs in exotic locations, choosing your handholds carefully and trying not to freak out at the epic drop below.

Lucky Tales: In the tradition of BanjoKazooie and Super Mario, this big adventure title stars a little fox and we can’t wait to see how jumping over spikes and squishing enemies plays out in virtual reality!
