VIDEO TRANSCRIPT:

Coach Chuck:
Hey, what’s up? This is Coach Chuck, Coach Vince from The Arena. Today we’re going to be trying the Oculus. We’re going to try Thrill of the Fight boxing game, so we’ll see how that goes.

Coach Chuck:
Oh s**t. Nice. He actually hit me.

Coach Chuck:
This was fun, dude.

Coach Vince:
Ooh.

Announcer:
The winner is the red corner.

Coach Vince:
What corner am I?

Camera Crew:
Red.

Coach Vince:
Did I win?

Camera Crew:
Yup.

Coach Vince:
Holy s**t. That’s a f***ing workout.

I can’t let that motherf***er win, bro. I couldn’t. I hit him with everything, dude.

Coach Chuck:
That was actually pretty fun. Yeah. I mean, I tried to play with as many different options as possible, like see if it created openings, how it reacted to stuff, and it showed me where strikes work. I can go high. I can go low. I can touch the body and see where things opened up. It’s a good tool if you already have some basic skills to actually see an opponent without that fear of getting hit, it was definitely interesting. It feels a lot more real than you think.

Coach Vince:
Pretty realistic. The range was on point. It’s a workout. You know, you’re out there and the guy reacts the way a normal guy would react in a real fight, so it’s like being able to see all the little small details like footwork and understanding angles without actually getting hit. So I mean, I think it’s a good training tool, but it’s also a lot of fun.
