Today on Lunchtime with my Gear VR I am taking a look at Playback. I have been going through all of the apps that I missed while my phone was broken and I thought this one was pretty cool! Playback is an episodic VR series that has a Black Mirror vibe to it.
Overall it features some of the better 360 video quality I have seen in a while coupled with overlaid AR style graphics. The episodes run around 10 minutes and I was just starting to get sucked into the story when the first part ended and just like a street dealer always says, "The first one is free but the rest are gonna cost you!" So joking aside, there is an in app purchase component to it with the future episodes costing $1.99 each.
After reading the reviews I am a bit concerned about this because it seems as if there are a lot of people saying that after paying for the remaining episodes they seem to have trouble downloading them. I hope this isn't the case for me because I really want to see how this all comes together!
