Hitman VR seems absolutely incredible. You all have got to do some more of that stuff.

When Vinny talks about a game where the audience controls difficulty I was like I'm not yet quite high enough for this man

Virtual Chokin' w/ 47 is amazing and really not what I expected - but considering IOI, maybe I should have.

Good energy in this one especially for it being a remote UPF. I'm really glad these are back again! Hitman 3 VR looks cool and makes me wonder two things: when will PS5 get its VR and how will the James Bond game VR be.

...I think the intro to Cyber Shadow might just imply that a bomb/nuke went off, you almost died and was brought back as a robot. Though I do like their theories as well. Also I died so many times just within the first 30 minutes of that game, that I think I'm good not playing it too much more. Thanks Game Pass.

Hitman VR was all kinds of amazing. I hope there'll be at least a couple more videos/streams of it to come in the future.

As someone who loves the 3 new Hitman games, it is fascinating to see the destinations from a different perspective. Also hilarious.

More VR Hitman please, most I've laughed in a while!

@dcav: Apparently flat bottom woks are only found in western countries. Found that on wikipedia so who knows how accurate it is, but yeah, totally agree with you.

I lost it the first time Brad choked a guy out. Hitman actually looks pretty fun in VR, but it’s probably incredibly difficult. Would love to see someone do a suit only run in VR

Watching Brad choke and bop his way through that mission was the hardest I’ve laughed in awhile. Thanks, guys!

I wish Jeff would stream more Cyber Shadow!

@julmajuuhan: Flat bottom woks exist because a large swath of the world has no gas stoves. They hardly even exist where I live (scandinavia). For a wok to work on a normal electric stove top it needs to be flat bottomed. The point of the wok is the inside shape, not the outside. The outside just needs to be flat to get any heat transfer at all from a hot plate. A round bottom wok would touch like a 5x5mm surface and would never get hot. If you're an asian person who lives in scandinavia, chances are you own a flat bottom wok cause there's no other option.

Anyone with an electric stove who wants to wok stuff will need a flat bottom wok or light up a bunsen burner.

In addition to any Wok talk, I just want the crew to know that I laughed so hard during this whole hitman thing. The VR works a lot better than I feared, but it's still perfectly janky for comedy.

I want to watch this, but... I also don't want Hitman 3 spoilers, cuz I can't find a damn PS5 to buy (before the scalper Bots do).

As a Vive owner, I laughed audibly when Brad took the headset off and said he was all turned around, but was just like 10º off-centre.

Roomscale can be super inconvenient when you end up in your kitchen or ourdoors or sumshit

As for Woks and ovens: are Natural Gas stoves really that rare? My parents' replaced their electric about 5 years ago with an NG oven. Flame on!

@daweboss: Here in Germany only old-ish houses or restaurants have gas stoves. Virtually all other households have electric / induction stoves.

I have a flat wok, too. It's a compromise, yes, you cannot really fry with this as with an actual carbon steel wok and an open gas flame but at least it's big enough to toss the ingredients around without making a mess. That's the difference to a normal pan.

Actually I considered getting some kind of on-top gas stove and a real wok but I haven't pulled the trigger yet. The logistics of it all just seem too inconvenient.

Hitman is such a perfect fit for VR jank. This is the funniest stream in a while boys, thank you.

The game had such self-aware humor about the nature and ridiculousness of vidyagames already; VR slips on like a glove (with two hands out, directly ahead, twisting awkwardly).

Secretly hoping we might be able to coax one Mr D Ryckert Esq. into a guest appearance for some kind of VR special with Brad.

One Piece is better than DBZ. At this point, I've just been following the manga and can only speak to that lately.

OMG this was great, SO GREAT! Watching them play Hitman in general is always awesome, but in VR was pure gold! We need a Hitman VR series PLEASE??!!

Also convinced me to hook up my PSVR for the first time in a year.
