Candor, Expertise, and Candor

October 20, 2016 The future arrived and for once, we liked it. This is very confusing, but it's definitely happening now. This is really when it's happening. Nick and Jake get their hands on PlayStation VR and play the heck out of it. Chris, who prefers a more traditional immersive themed environment, visits the immaculately produced Tokyo DisneySea and can't contain himself. Where does VR sit next to the rest of gaming? Is there space for the player in stories that aren't about them, especially in a medium fixated on literally putting players in the heroe's shoes? What does this have to do with a fictional New York in the middle of Japan, with a janitor who, when your back is turned, starts emitting cartoon sound effects and giving high fives to everyone around him? Find out moments from now. Step into this pod, press play, immerse yourself, and please tell a friend about what you experienced here.

Discussed: PlayStation VR, Super Hypercube, Job Simulator, Batman Arkham VR, Thumper, The Playroom VR, Wayward Sky, The Future, The Entertainment, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, Pirates of the Caribbean, Tokyo DisneySea, Sour Flush
