Ep. 5: Our Favorite VR Games


In this week’s episode, we discuss Microsoft’s potential purchase of Discord, the end of the PlayStation Store on PS3 and PS Vita, and our pretty new custom DualSense controllers. In our main segment, we dive into our experience with VR, some of our favorite games, and what we’d like to see in future hardware and software. Have a VR recommendation? Reach us virtually (see what I did there? Like, virtual reality… and you’re reaching us virtually… by email… never mind) at prettypixelspodcast@gmail.com.

Ep. 4: Behind the Waterfall (Disappointing Games)


In the spirit of this episode, please prepare for it to be the best podcast episode you’ve ever heard! … and then walk away from it feeling sorely disappointed. This week, we discuss games that have, to some extent, left us or other gamers feeling burned by pre-release hype. As we note in the podcast, our disappointment does not equal hate (we actually quite like most of these games), but if you insist on sending a sternly worded electronic letter our way, hit us up at prettypixelspodcast@gmail.com.
