Give Josef Fares A Reality TV Show Already

At this point in the pandemic, I reckon we’re all just sat here waiting to hear what Josef Fares comes out with next.

Today, XR Games and Sony Pictures Virtual Reality (SPVR) have announced Zombieland: Headshot Fever, an arcade shooter coming to most VR headsets this Spring.
