Podcast #94 – Virtual Reality

Zach, Brandon, and new guest Jon Rendall ask themselves three questions about virtual reality:

  1. Can we escape reality through video games?
  2. When will it become so real that we can’t tell the difference (Matrix-level spooky)?
  3. When will the wow-factor wear off?

Topics include Virtual Reality, Oculus Rift, Playstation VR, Super Mario World, The Wizard, Nintendo Wii U, Fire Emblem: Birthright, Dark Souls, Hyperdimension Neptunia, Record of Agarest War, Hayao Miyazaki, Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy Explorers, 3DS, Chrono Trigger, tank dating simulators, tanuki, Bravely Default, Nintendo 3DS, Jean Baudrillard, Simulacra and Simulation, Tron light cycles, pornography, Sword Art Online, Chobits, online college, and some other stuff!
