We talk about the Gear VR, as one of our guests has had some hands on time with the device this week. What sort of games were played. And what other trouble was gotten into with this early Christmas (and New Years) present? We talk about where a good place might be for a gamer to start with VR, and wonder if there might be too many options out there... or not enough. Then we get into the news of the week as we ramp up to E3!
