I went and saw Ready Player One in theaters for the second time, this time with my brother who had not seen it yet. I got a chance to look for more of of the references and such, but I still got into the story. It got me into a VR mood so I got onto my Vive when I got back to the house. Funny enough, when I got home I saw that RPO: Oasis Beta had finally been released on Steam. It's a free game, no micro-transactions, just free.
As hyped as I was for Skyrim VR, I was very worried that it wasn't going to be all that great. First releasing on the PS4 and also being a nearly eight year old game, I just figured Bethesda would have put a small team on the VR project to make a quick port. Thankfully, the game is a great VR version, but not perfect.
To say that I was hyped for the movie adaptation of Ready Player One is a massive understatement. I had read the book early last year (well, I listened to it on Audible while I would jog) and really enjoyed it, so I was just excited to see a Spielberg directed film version of it. I am also a massive fan of so many of the references and my family as a whole are huge into films and video games from the 70s and 80s, so just seeing all of these in a single film was obviously going to be a treat for my eyes. And of course, as someone who has now jumped into the VR industry, I have a lot of hype (and hope) for what it will do for bringing VR to the mainstream.
