Show Notes

Hello Lamer Gamers, this is simplyTravis and special guest LoyalHistorian with a special SIDEQUEST edition of the Lamer Gamers Podcast. 

We drove more than 250 miles from the steamy swamps of Southeast Texas to the majestic hipster haven in the hill country known as Austin...also in Texas... to experience...virtual war. And by that I mean Dan Carlin’s virtual reality experience War Remains which gave us the chance to experience the sights, sounds, and explosive immersive reality behind World War I trench warfare. 

Today we’re going to walk you through what we experienced at War Remains and discuss the history behind World War I. As we walk through the experience we’ll dive into what it was like to be a soldier on the front line, in the trenches, and up in the air. We’ll finish up by discussing how this use of gaming technology is viewed by a historian vs a gamer. Now that we have our marching orders it’s time to load up and move on out!
