We've got our game faces on, but you can't see them because you're strapped into your Oculus Rift. That's all well and good because we're doing a deep dive into Facebook's recent purchase deal for Oculus VR. The social network laid down $2 billion to buy this nascent, yet popular VR hardware company and the responses are definitely mixed. Additionally, the Eurocast crew discuss HTC's new One (M8) smartphone and surprisingly none of them ended up using "mate" as a stand-in for M8. Both of these hot news stories have lots of little nooks and crannies worth exploring, and that's what you'll get in this edition of the Engadget Eurocast.

Hosts: Dan Cooper, Matt Brian, Sharif Sakr
