Vivendi is making a play to do a hostile takeover of Ubisoft, prompting owners and employees to implore shareholders that they like things the way they are. Steam changed the way they show reviews, now prioritizing reviews from people who purchased the game directly from Steam over those who got keys from other means. A side effect of this is that some games that we thought were hated were maybe not as hated by actual consumers than originally thought... Steam has also pulled the games from a developer who is suing reviewers (both professional and Steam reviewers) for saying bad things about their game. Then we take calls about developers throwing tantrums, why the PS4 Pro meeting was less exciting than their Tokyo Game Show press conference, Persona 5 streaming, and the Forza Horizon 3 demo.

The PlayStation VR is here, and it totally did NOT poison the well for newcomers to the experience, and is a very good buy for the price. We go over how to set it up, how to wear it, and what it's capabilities (both documented AND undocumented) are, as well as talk about the content such as PlayStation VR Worlds and Rez Infinite. Before PSVR came out, Valve showed off new prototype motion controllers for the HTC Vive that mimic more of the Oculus Touch characteristics at Steam Dev Days.
We have an interview with Nick Laing, Senior Producer of the Forza Motorsport franchise at Turn10 Studios, talking about the keynote speech he gave at SIEGE about management and leadership inside a game dev studio. Oculus Connect 3 was this week, and they announced that the Touch controllers as well as Roomscale VR will be coming in December. Also, the minimum specs for an Oculus ready PC just went down so the cost of an Oculus-ready PC just got lower. There's a followup to my LEGO Dimensions save file story from last week. Then, on the call for OLR, we talk about GaymerX, PlayStation VR, and a neat audiogame called Rest Your Eyes.
There were three games that came out this week that deserve being talked about: Lost Odyssey is now backwards compatible on the Xbox One! LEGO Dimensions Year 2 figurines are out, except it corrupted my save file... Forza Horizon 3 is now out and sadly the drivatars still need work, but it's still a lot of fun! Then we take a call about Lost Odyssey, and the complexity of Kingdom Hearts stories.
Forza Horizon 3 is coming out, and I picked it up digitally so I could try it on Xbox Anywhere. Palmer Luckey, founder of Oculus VR, has made some interesting small donations that have blown up in the gaming world. Then we take calls about Pokemon Go Plus, GaymerX, and why there's no Patreon for this show.
