I'll be at the Vintage Computer Festival Southeast 4.0 in Roswell, GA this weekend shooting video for our YouTube channel. I am also speaking on a panel Sunday at 3PM with other local podcasters! LEGO Dimensions' final wave of physical DLC has been released, and the Midway Arcade "Gamer Kid" pack is actually worth the investment. Playstation VR sold out in seven minutes, and Sony relented and allowed people to preorder the base system this coming week. A few leaks about Nintendo have been floating about - one has been debunked, the other is most likely also fake. Then we take calls about Pokken Tournament and the leaks.

(Turns out this week has been extra bad for Vive shipping...) I used the DK2 of the Oculus Rift on the new software and drivers, and it feels like a new piece of hardware... Nintendo had some controversy, but silenced it the very next day with the launch of Miitomo, their first mobile phone app. Our music break was from PC-98 music composer Noyemi K.
