PSVRLIFE 030: Continuing Missions, Special Delivery, and E3 Predictions

Hello everybody! Episode 30 is here and with E3 coming up next week, we try to predict what Sony (and others) have up their sleeves. This week we dive into the Ancient Amuletor demo, continue our missions on Star Trek: Bridge Crew, and Schleis lights more money on fire 🔥 with the purchase of Special Delivery. Coincidentally we both end up playing games from our insanely large back catalog; Danthol gets back behind the wheel in Driveclub VR and Schleis plays god with suicidal parishioners in Tethered.

Upcoming games we tear apart this week are Overturn VRTheseusAriel, and Arizona Sunshine gets a release date!
