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

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.)
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
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.

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