Do you recommend the SnapChat spectacles to someone with needs prescription glasses?

Also great show as per usual.

    I have to take my glasses off to wear these ones, so you’ll have to wear contacts or something (or just wander around blindly like I’ve been doing). I know a guy who actually got prescription lenses cut for his Spectacles!

    Yeah, we’re aware of the desire for this and want to find a way to make it happen! We have a couple ideas but nothing on the roadmap just yet.

    While it’s an extra step, you could probably put the MP3 files onto USB/NAS for Media Player playback, or see if the Web Browser on the PS4 supports the Soundcloud plugin and you can just load this page on it. (although I am not sure if it will or not)

    Sid said they are looking into it. So hopefully, they will be able to make it happen sometime this year.

    For now, I will just continue downloading it to the Vita, and listening to it while I play No Mans Sky.

    @Dead-Sync

    I can tell you that the web browser on Ps4 doesn’t support the soundcloud plug-in but the page does load. Oh well at least i still have my Ps3 at least its good for something besides grabbing the free Ps3 and Vita plus games and finishing my gaming backlog.

Haven’t listed to the episode yet, but is this going to be the first Blogcast with all 4 of the current cast members? I’m not 100% sure but it feels like it may be. If so, I wonder how much derailing will take place! (That said I’m always down for some quality Blogcast derailments haha)

Either way I’m excited to listen to this on the way home from work tonight!

    We’ve had all four of us on the show once or twice! It’s hard to get all four of our schedules to sync up, but we do find that three people tends to be the sweet spot in terms of conversation flow and such anyway.

I just want to enjoy the complete aspect of the GTAv video game. I was not aware of the update system and missed the deadline to tranfer GTA v online character to my new system I think the timing was too short notice and for that now im stressing, I want to be able to transfer my character from my ps3 platform to make the most of my ps3/ ps4 gaming just, if you agree please allow a final choice to tranfer characters online for those individuals who have not yet had the transforming gaming experience.

    Lol, No!

    Everybody already knew about the “last chance to transfer” over your character to current gen consoles since the end of January 2017! Oh well, you can always start over again or play the PC version.
