ShockCast Ep. 167 – “Is this Reality?”

on March 26, 2014 1:39 PM

Virtual Reality seems to be the big “it” thing recently. Last week we learned about Sony’s Project Morpheus and yesterday we got the bombshell news about Facebook buying Oculus VR. With this in mind, how could we NOT delve into the subject? We discuss whether VR is the true next step in gaming or if it’s another fad like 3D and motion controls.

We also discuss some of the original content posted on the site including our reviews of  inFAMOUS: Second Son, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare and The Witcher #1 and our editorials about The Last of Us film adaptation, Metal Gear Solid 3 and why Final Fantasy X-2 deserves more love. We also discuss Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes and Peace Walker because we really can’t go one week without talking about the MGS franchise on the ShockCast.

This week I was joined by my fellow Staff Writers Ryan Meitzler and Jorge Jimenez. Thanks as always to El Blanco Niño for our custom intro and outro tracks.

Tony has been a gamer ever since he came to the United States from the Dominican Republic when he was a kid. He's been a geek since he could draw his first breath and will be one until he draws his last. In addition to video games, Tony loves Comic Books, Anime, Science Fiction and Fantasy. If it's geeky then Tony is most likely into it.
