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

@BeatSaber:

Beat Saber Original Soundtrack by @Sqeepo is out! ✨

🔉 Listen now: [fanlink.to]

*Only few hours left until Beat Saber release on Steam & Oculus Store! #StayTuned

I’m a bit disappointed that Beat Saber fails out of a song if you miss too many beats—I thought everyone agreed that was bad.

Also disappointed that it doesn’t come with the green-screen studio they used in their mixed-reality videos.

I managed to knock the wireless connection out of one Touch controller 😅 (Removing and reinstalling the battery fixed it.)

My Rift’s foam interface has never been so disgusting with sweat. Beat Saber is just as good as it looked 💜

I figured I’d play Beat Saber for just a little while to put myself in a good mood and start working. I emerged three and a half hours later, hungry and with sore arms.

Worth noting the tracks are about 2:30 long and there are only four or five I actually like.

3 May

I didn’t realize the software solution used to make those videos was free

So now I’m looking for a way to get rid of most of the furniture in my bedroom and set up a green screen studio. Liv supports Beat Saber and Tilt Brush, what else could you need.

I’m gonna need to build or buy dedicated handles for the Oculus Touch so I can get into the Beat Saber zone without accidentally triggering the Oculus overlay every other song.

Going to the club like, I wish I had lightsabers and cubes were floating at me.

7 May

How awesome is it that I get to disappear into Beat Saber for several hours at a time without ever feeling guilty because it’s my workout.

I don’t have the room here but I’d love to mod my Touch controllers so they get not only a proper lightsaber hilt but also a physical blade to prevent them from intersecting in-game.

And maybe — I’m just spitballing here — make the blade searing hot, too.

I can’t imagine what miracle would ever allow me to progress from hard to expert difficulty in Beat Saber.

9 May

The street is completely blocked by an 18-wheeler desperately trying to maneuver into a gate and I feel better about my performance in ETS2

@BeatSaber:

You have been asking about our scoring system a lot. Here you go! 💪

I figured Beat Saber’s scoring system was optimized for maximum workout, but not to that point — didn’t expect to have to complete a 150° arc to get the maximum score on each cube 😳

@artlynnik:

Alyx’s teeth brightness linked with lips animation. It’s not a shadow, it’s a hardcoded effect. #HL2 @simonschreibt

@patrickmcurry:

Me: Hey, I’m left-handed, and I can’t use your product.

Dev: But all of the creators love the product this way.

Me: I know, but your product hurts me when I try to use it.

Dev: But everyone else who’s tried it can use it just fine.

(How it feels discussing motion sickness in VR.)

@benz145:

So far everyone I’ve put in @BeatSaber has had the same reaction… it’s not ‘wow this is immersive’ or ‘I totally see how VR could change the world’… it’s just ‘omg this is fun can I go again?’ Which is actually a really different kind of reaction than most VR content instills

@AntonHand:

An element of Beat Saber’s success that should be paid attention to by other VRdevs is the way that one (can play it in a way that) looks COOL playing it.

Much as many pancake games are built entirely around the Streamer economy, MR + looking sweet/powerful is a big opportunity.

@Kiburuzu:

Me trying to get the bad ending.

@MrLeePerry:

Occurs to me I never posted my finished custom Settlers of Catan board on twitter! Finished the box last weekend.

@ben_throop:

That moment of disappointment where you are introduced to a beautiful and fascinating new game world, only to realize you must kill nearly everything inside of it.

@designbycloud:

After some thought, I think this is more accurate for #Gamedev.

22 May

Didn’t think I’d ever reach 10,000 again. And again I lost because of a mis-swipe 😡

31 May

@DanStapleton:

I’d like a Beat Saber mod that says fuck the music and gives me the full-on whirly-zoomy slice-and-dice lightsaber sound effects I crave. Just for a little while, at least.
