Weekly Recap: Facebook Buys Oculus And 5 Other Shocking News Stories
Well this week went all kinds of sour for the Kickstarter community. They've just found out that there's a downside to kickstarting a product that becomes prime bait for giant, billion-dollar corporations who want to eat up the niche device and turn into a casual, mainstream experience. Tons of gamers feel betrayed that the Oculus Rift, the popular VR headset, will no longer be geared towards gaming. A fair bit of fear, indeed.
But with all the doom and gloom surrounding the concept of seeing ads in your VR helmet as you try to fap to the latest nude Skyrim mods, we've decided to help lighten the mood (not with fapping, of course) but with some free stuff. Over the weekend we'll be giving away PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, custom-themed Cinema Blend controllers. They're real beauts. There's also a ton of more where that comes from in this March 29th, 2014 edition of the Gaming Blend Weekly Recap.

That's not to mention there's a rather wicked series of stunt videos for Grand Theft Auto V.
