Turn Based, The RPG Podcast 32 – How Will Virtual Reality Impact RPGs?

Can VR technology like Oculus Rift and Project Morpheus improve the RPG genre?

Written by on    

Welcome back to Turn Based, the dedicated RPG podcast. This week we welcomed back a previous guest and fellow member of The Koalition team: Jakejames Lugo. This week our spotlight discussion was all about virtual reality, and how it could potentially impact the RPG genre. The topic was obviously inspired by the recent acquisition of Oculus by Facebook – with such a huge acquisition, and Sony also stepping into the Virtual reality realm – it’s clear that virtual reality is going to become a big deal in gaming. So how about an Elder Scrolls game built for Oculus? Could it work? We delve deep into all the possibilities on the show.

Also discussed this week are our thoughts on both Final Fantasy X & X2 HD, and Dark Souls 2. We also speak on upcoming PS4 RPG Bound by Flame, the new release date for The Witcher 3, and lots more.

Other games and topics discussed include:

  • Diablo III – Reaper of Souls
  • The Elder Scrolls’ 20th Anniversary
  • The Elder Scrolls Online
  • Monster Hunter
  • Guild Wars 2
