“You’ll forgive me if I don’t stay around to watch. I just can’t cope with the freaky stuff.”

Those were Barry Convex’s last words to Max Renn before leaving him alone with a giant, pulsing headset wrapped around his skull; a device that would send Renn further down the rabbit hole of distorted reality that is David Cronenberg’s Videodrome. During their 2014 Game Developers Conference presentation, PlayStation head Shuhei Yoshida presented a Virtual Reality prototype for “Project Morpheus”, a head-mounted display featuring a white visor with a black wrap-around piece along the eye-line that will transform anyone who wears it into James Woods.

The preview trailer for the newly announced Batman: Arkham Knight hit yesterday, and it was siiiick. Heck, my Bat nipples were beaming in excitement…and I wasn’t even wearing my Batsuit.
