Whoooaaaaaa guys, we are totally in the future right now! PS VR is now out in the world and in peoples homes, so we discuss the phenomenon that is Virtual Reality in great detail on this episode. Is it worth the (expensive) cost? Is it going to really last or is it just a fad? Jakob has managed to get his hands on one, so hear his thoughts – along with Luke, Archer and Ronnie – on whether this is really a game changer or just a passing trend. Also this week, Ronnie gets his sportsball on (AGAIN) with his review of FIFA 17, Luke has been practicing his career in construction with Dragon Quest Builders while Jakob has been defending his family of choice in Mafia 3.
