Matthias is a YouTuber with a love of all things Star Wars, and nerd related in general. GameSkinny managed to find some time with Matthias to talk about VR gaming.
Matthias is a YouTuber who does a host of different content, his main channel is all centered around fun, and making people laugh. He does sketch comedy, sometimes music, plays some weird mobile games, and interacts with his community by having several series' around reading comments -- with over 1 million subscribers, there is a lot in his community.
Matthias also has an incredible ability have keep many different channels updated, and keep all of the content to a high standard, and varied. From vlogs with his wife Amanda Faye on their "Matt & Amanda" channel, to gaming content on his "it's whatever" channel, even challenge videos with his brother-in-law, Bryan, and brother, J-Fred, on the "TeamEdge" channel.
The "it's whatever" channel has recently been featuring a lot of VR content, specifically with the HTC Vive. With GameSkinny being a gaming focused site, I managed to find a time when Mathias wasn't busy and asked a few questions about gaming, but VR gaming specifically.
GS: How long have you been interested in gaming? What types of games got you into gaming?
GS: What do you remember as being your go to game, and why was it?
GS: Before getting the HTC Vive did you have any previous VR experience? What hardware did you use, and what did you think of it?
GS: When did your interest in gaming turn to an interest in VR? Was it recently, or have you always wanted something like VR?
GS: Did you ever consider buying any VR headsets?
GS: What was the setup process like for the Vive? What was the hardest part or did it all just work?
M: The setup was definitely very time consuming. Took about an hour because I had never even researched the Vive before getting one. A lot of installing drivers and updating firmware. Had a bunch of issues getting that thing updated as well. Now that it's out of beta though, it works much smoother with constant updates. Updating the base stations is a pain in the butt though for sure! haha
GS: When you first used the Vive at home, what were your initial impressions?
GS: What do you think of it now, given that you have had some time to tweak it and improve the calibration?
GS: What is your favourite VR game to play? Is it because of the immersion, or just the gameplay?
GS: Where do you see VR gaming going? Do you think it’s just a fad, or is it here to stay?
GS: If you could describe your perfect VR game, what would it be?
GS: Can you describe your experiences with VR in 4 words?
I'd like to once again thank Matthias for taking the time to answer my questions.
If you want to find Matthias' VR content, there is a handy playlist with it all. But if you want to find some content which will just make you laugh, his main channel will fill that gap. You can also find him on Twitch, Instagram, and Twitter.
