PPR at GDC 16!

ncoming; we’ve got a late podcast from PPR, and for that; we sincerely apologize, but just know that we’re still here, we’re still kicking, and that’s never going to stop.

So GDC, George went there, and he played a TON of stuff; mostly shit that transported him to immersive worlds through the use of various gaudy headwear tech options that were strapped to his dumb dome. Stuff like Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR, HTC Vive, Idealswift, and more in this special GDC recap.

Tons of other game talk too, especially Nintendo, and the debut of their app, Miitomo, some Batman V Superman talk, and all those shitty NX leaks that we all had fun with dissecting. What are y’all waiting for? Give it a listen!

Mail us at our new email Mailbag@presspauseradio.com, leave a voicemail at 469-PPR-TALK, and be sure to stop by at our Forums if you haven’t already registered and post your thoughts about the show. Finally, make sure to rate and subscribe to us on iTunes and YouTube, follow us on Twitch page and Twitter, and finally take part in our Facebook and Steam group!

GDC 16: Trying out the final Oculus Rift and Touch before launch!

o, even as we approach the official release of the Oculus, we can’t deny the sticker shock of its price and hardware requirements that we’ve all been talking about since the last holiday—it’s still kind of a big deal.

However that may be though, there’s no denying the allure and technical performance of the finalized set in action. As I made my way towards the Oculus exhibit at GDC 16, I went with the baited hopes that the experience would be able to convince me that this peripheral was going to be worth everything that its eventual price of admission will make it out to be.

I can be honest, I still haven’t arrived to a conclusion about that, but I can tell you this—The Oculus Rift and Touch is pretty fucking rad, and definitely better than any previous iteration of the tech that I’ve seen before.
