Talking Point: What is your opinion on the VR Trend?

It is that time of the week again, when in to get warmed up ready for the podcast we ramble about a chosen topic. Before we got onto this weeks topic we did however have to handle the comments of the Listeners/Viewers of the previous show – Which Game sums up your Childhood?

All of the comments can be found at the links below.

As always some of your suggestions and comments were great, we do like when people get involved.

A lot of very good suggestions but you guys wound up Gow as none of you selected a single game, though to be honest neither did we really and the ones we kinda forced upon ourselves was probably wrong

However one overwhelming opinion was a lot of people really liked the LucasArts

Moving on to this weeks topic, we want to know What is your opinion on the VR Trend?

This came about as a result of during the 3 weeks we have been away much happened in that area of the gaming industry. Firstly Sony officially announced project morpheus as their entry into the VR Market, then just before recording Facebook bought the Oculus developers for $2 Billion (Yes I heard Dr Evil as well). So whats your take on the whole thing and will you still be buying one?

Let us know in the comments below which is your favourite and suggest a possible question for the next Talking Point, please do as I seem bad at picking them myself. Everything is fair game, from politics to movies, music to games, hell we will even discuss our favourite womble if you so wish it..

Congratulations Craig on your wedding day, all the best for you and Emma for the future

This episode of the Podcast is dedicated to Craig (aka TurkeySaladBoy) & Emma who, by the time you are reading this, will have tied the knot.

Everyone involved with 8bitalliance wishes them every happiness in their future together, you two deserve each other.

As a result of the pending more important event today this weeks podcast is a little shorter than previous recordings – I deliberately imposed a time-limit, more to stop me drinking as much as usual than the amount we talk.

However as you will hear we still managed to get quite a lot of stories covered. From the Closure of LucasArts and layoffs at Dark Moon Studio to the fact the EA’s idea of Freemium is wrong and the fact that Blizzard now seem to be fixated E-Sports.

Anyway all that and much more in this episode of the Drinky Talky Thingy.
