Popular UFC commentator Joe Rogan reveals his hopes for the future of VR gaming and explains why he thinks it could be the future of fitness.

Since virtual reality gaming first started to reach the masses, many players have been excited for its full potential and to see the different possibilities it could open up.

During episode 1440 of the Joe Rogan Experience, the podcast host revealed that he has high hopes for the future of VR and gaming during an interview with Doom Eternal developer Hugo Martin.

The pair began by discussing some of the advancements that video game developers had made in recent years, such as the ever-improving graphics that are making games more realistic than ever before.

Joe Rogan explained that he wanted to see gaming reach a stage where fans would benefit from immersing themselves in VR: “My hope for the future is that games are like that and you will be actually able to exercise doing that.”

“If you had a game where you’re in a warehouse and you’re actually running for your life, demons are chasing you, you’re shooting down things, your heart rate would be jacked,” Rogan explained.

Similar to going to a gym for a workout, he continued to highlight the potential benefits that gaming in virtual reality could introduce in the future.

“You could do that for an hour and get a sick workout in and have an amazing, good time. You could get in great shape running from demons.”

He also explained that the spaces used for the virtual reality experiences could be designed to mirror the in-game maps and that players could use a haptic feedback suit to be completely immersed in the action.

Although it is likely to take a few years until VR games reach such a level of immersion, many gamers have shared his hopes for similar capabilities in the future.

Martin explained though that realistically, VR won’t overtake traditional controller or mouse and keyboard gaming, as the skill and accuracy of these inputs can’t be replicated through VR, at least not yet.

Alexandra Botez responds to creepy Twitch viewer asking to see her feet

Twitch streamer and chess guru Alexandra Botez wasn’t going to put up with trolls asking to see her feet during a live stream.

During the broadcast, as Botez was challenging players in chess, a viewer decided to ask the streamer if they could see her feet – something that promoted a hilarious response from Alexandra.

“Sir, you’re not seeing… you know what,” the frustrated streamer began, before pausing with a smirk. “I’m going to show you what’s on my feet, and you’re going to stop asking.”

With that, the 25-year-old lifted up her shoe and showed it off in front of the camera.

“I’m wearing these clogs, okay? This is all you need to know. And if you would ask me that in person, I would turn into Romanian Botez,” she added.

Next, Alexandra pretended to smack the person with her clog while rambling on in Romanian.

“And I would hit you in the head with my shoe,” she warned. “And you wouldn’t see feet because your vision would be blurry.”

Amusingly, after that whole rant, the streamer went right back into challenging whoever she wanted to play next, as if the whole foot fiasco never even happened.

Fans have requested feet before

This isn’t the first time that Alexandra has been asked to show her feet, oddly enough. Earlier in 2020, a viewer donated $3 and asked the streamer to reveal her highly fetishized body part.

Instead of showing them off, however, she simply drew a foot on a piece of paper and held it up for the camera, which confused her two on-stream guests.

“Someone donated to show feet,” she explained, prompting some laughs in the chat.

While Botez has handled the foot remarks quite well thus far, the next time someone dares to ask the chess queen to slip off her shoes to expose her feet, they could be getting a clog to the skull.
