Every week, we go Live at Five on Facebook and Persicope to show you all the latest and greatest VR experiences that we can get our hands on. Every show is shot using a green screen and an HTC Vive in the Mixed Reality mode to give you the best angles to watch.
This week, we kicked it off by scaling new heights and making new best friends in the HTC Vive game Climbey on Monday. Tuesday, Will Mason whacked the hell out of a politically charged piñata, and Friday was an interview gone awry by a series of entertaining interruptions by children in Rec Room.
Keep on the lookout on our social channels for announcements for when we’re streaming a multiplayer game for a chance to be a part of the video! Follow us on Facebook to get join the discussion when we go live:
