Wow. Amazing to do this with that drilling going on at the same time. How frustrating. Good job staying focused.

5:16 - When the drill noise starts and stops on beat, it totally sounds like it could be in the remix.

Poor Brad. He always seems to get flustered quite easily.

I was so excited during the live stream when Jeff actually had plans for "X Gonna Give It To Yah" after teasing us with it on the desktop for so long. I never played Audio Surf, but Audio Shield looks right up my alley.

Watching Brad fumble around with that gun demo was nails on a chalkboard. I agree it's not super intuitive, but even watching from outside, the blue ball definitely seemed like the "grab point." I'm guessing you either didn't have to dump out the other grenade, or Brad could have reached in to grab the spent one with his other hand.

Then again, I've screwed around with this stuff for more than a year now using prototype positional controllers with the Gear VR at our lab.

The double layers of unfamiliarity, with operating a real firearm and with the controls of H3, looked like it made it kind of frustrating.

I appreciate Jeff's middling view of all things whilst watching these. He clearly sees the potential but isn't getting all over excited like a lot of sites appear to be doing regarding VR.

Lost it when Jeff took the headset off, seriously creepy.

Jesus, that drilling. You'd think they'd at least have some understanding, don't think I'd be so cool with that as the crew were.

@machofantastico: They were there before normal hours, and there likely isn't another time for the crew to do that kind of construction, so it's understandable.

Maybe it is different now or in other suburbs but growing up in North Carolina suburbs in a four bedroom house in what I always thought of as middle middle class we had a large basement that was never really furnished along with a living room seperate from a den that was never really furnished either that could have been used for VR. Now I don't make enough money to have that yet but hope to someday.

Jeff shoots roadsigns and Drew has clearly killed a man. They just didn't want to put Brad on the spot (and he's from Norf Cackalacky).

Brad's m.o. seems to be "I've tried nothing and I'm all out of ideas."

Man, that VR drilling almost sounded real.
