    MOTHERGUNSHIP: FORGE is a frantic VR FPS roguelite where players craft powerful hand-held weapons and struggle to survive—er defeat—the MOTHERGUNSHIP.

TennisHam ,

Ruff Talk VR

This was a first-time experience for me. I do not recall listening to a podcast before. This was an interesting description of tennis by two well-informed observers. I have previously played tennis, and have watched tennis on
TV, and this podcast presented an accurate review of tennis and made the game as available on VR seem like a viable alternative. The price appears reasonable. A fair description of s VR game.

Great Oculus Quest 2 coverage!

A fun podcast where a father and son team up to discuss and review a variety of games on the Oculus Quest 2. The easy banter, deep insight and common opinions they share between each other just goes to show how close a father can be to his son. Do I think you'll love the show? 100%

Get Your Niche Quest Coverage Here

Stumbled across these guys’ pod yesterday while hunting for Demeo coverage, and ended up consuming the whole back catalogue in the last 24 hours…while playing Demeo. Love that they’re focusing on Quest 2 releases only, an underrepresented (I think, anyhow) subset of the VR space. Thanks dudes!
