WE GOT SOME virtual insanity for you on the Monitor podcast this week.
For one, we’re talking about Pixels, its videogame-inspired alien invasion, and whether or not Adam Sandler’s career is virtually over (or at least should be). After that, we’re on to True Detective and how the show finally unveiled the much-talked-about orgy scene. This part doesn’t really have anything to with anything virtual, but it was fairly well-done and tasteful! And finally, we’re talking about Oculus Story Studio’s new virtual reality experience Henry, which is about a lonely hedgehog who loves hugs. (Awww…)
We’ve got editors and contributors Jordan Crucchiola, Peter Rubin, K.M. McFarland, and Angela Watercutter in the booth and three out of four of them get emotional about sad hedgehogs in this week’s episode. You’ll have to listen to find out which ones.
Here are a few helpful links for things we talk about in the podcast:
