When we recorded, we didn't know anything more about Sierra's eventual return other than the teaser trailer, but we were cautiously optimistic... I've spent more time with the Oculus Rift DK2, but not TOO much more - not many things support it well yet, and that's ruffling the feathers of some enthusiasts. Twitch.tv has gone through some massive sweeping changes in preparation of their acquisition by Google, and that's ruffling the feathers of the streaming community. Unfortunately, their alternative isn't going to be as safe for long... Then we take calls about music licenses and Plants vs. Tresspassers.

Monday morning at 11:30AM, after everyone has checked out of their hotels and are battling hangovers, Bobby Blackwolf, Rob Roberts, and John from Critical Myth convince people how to get people to participate with their podcasts and not just listen. (This is not a video game podcast, but rather a panel about podcasting. Normal content will resume next week!)
Dragon Con is this weekend, and a lot of VOG people are on a lot of panels. Come say hi! We have some first impressions of Diablo 3 on PS4, which we played before PSN was taken down and bomb threats were issued to airplanes. Flappy Bird creator Dong Nguyen's next game Swing Copters came out, and it didn't take long for a bunch of knockoffs to appear. PlayStation Home has been foreclosed on in Asia (staying open in US and Europe) - what should happen to people who bought virtual items and are now PlayStation Homeless? Then we take calls about PlayStation Home and Diablo 3.
I will be on FOUR panels (plus an awards ceremony) at Dragon Con in Atlanta...Hope to see you there! In the weekly Oculus Rift DK2 update, we talk about wearing glasses and how that affects Chromatic Aberration. Activision is bringing Sierra back...as an indie publishing label. Sony has detailed the Share Play functionality of the PS4, which sounds neat in concept, but not sure about the hardware limitations. Then we get a call from Reverend Kyle talking about his VR podcast and his recently funded Kickstarter.
