Once upon a time I made a blog about video games. And this is what's left of it (mostly tweets).

I spend so much time in Beat Saber that I forget how cool it can be to stand in a fully detailed virtual environment. Corollary: every time I mess around with Oculus Home I’m mystified by how annoying the overall UX is, when Oculus used to be so good at that.

Would you believe that battery holder design will now be part of my primary criteria when it comes to upgrading my headset.

Adding a spring didn’t solve the issue but setting launch options to “-vrmode oculus” seems to make the sabers come back much faster. Makes sense — SteamVR would be adding a layer of error correction that messes things up — and explains why Oculus Store buyers aren’t rioting.

I hate that I’m basically punishing a developer for giving out free content, but the expert maps for Beat Saber’s new free songs are so bad they’ve put me off buying the DLC. (Except for the one Jaroslav Beck track, and that can’t be a coincidence—does he map his songs himself?)
