This seems like an east feature, and oh my god have they been killing it lately with games I want to see them play.

Very excited to see what exactly this is about...

Can someone with a better memory than me tell them how to get to the other Miracle Johnson side bit? I know you end up at the disco, but I'm not sure how you get it started.

Both every single week. Though I will listen to the Beastcast immediately after it's published, the bombcast I don't mind waiting a day or two before getting to it.

@ev77: As I've said a couple of times now, I made an exaggerated point there to talk about how I personally feel. It's clear that yourself and others disagree with me and that's fine. There's no need to keep @ing me about this.

It shocks me how much most of you are reacting so strongly against introducing stronger security to a big public event. It's a necessity, and it is not "living in fear". Having a smoke detector in my house is not me "living in fear" and neither is locking my car doors when I'm out.

That's a straw man argument. No one here would disagree with those things, both of those are common sense.

It's hyperbole 100%. But for me personally, there is little difference between me locking my car door and having a security guard check through my backpack at a big public event. I'm sure plenty of people would disagree with me on that, but it's how I feel.

@horseman6: I'm not sure I'll ever buy the "putting security in a place makes it a target" argument. I also don't feel like just because something is logistically difficult means it isn't worth doing. All I know is that I go to plenty of public events like E3, and security being tight is pretty much a guarantee. It is very rarely a hassle. You may be right that it only makes people "feel safer" but I believe there is value in that.

But it's also clear you and I are going to disagree on this and are probably not going to convince the other of our way of thinking. I was just surprised to see how many people here reacted so strongly in the negative.

if its the full game in VR and done well? Then yes I will pay 60 bucks for it. Yes it would be nice to have it cheaper or as a free update to the ps4 version, but man I just really want to play a good RPG in VR.

You're playing a psychiatrist interviewing patients. How does the game treat the issue of mental health? Hopefully they portray it correctly, or at least respectfully. Otherwise Vinny just might actual shut the stream down.

I've only just finished the first act, and it still could definitely go either way. The main thing I'll say is that while there is some real mental health stuff on the surface, like depression, anxiety, and grief, the game is seeming like it's going in the direction that it's not that they're crazy, they're just the only ones who can see the truth. Because some of them also seem to have some kind of magical powers, maybe? It's very Lovecraftian.
