Beat Saber – VR

Beat Saber is most definitely my favorite VR game. It is a rythm game available on the Vive, Oculus, and PlayStation. It also works with the Valve Index. I play on the Vive and let me just say, its a good way to sneak in some exercise. You basically slice blocks with light sabers to the beat of music; while avoiding obstacles.

Thanks to Beat Saver and BeastSaber, players are able to mod the game to add additional content. Know that mods are offically unsupported, and all the additional songs you chose to download are user generate and some are much better than others. Beat Saver has the link to the mod assistant that is required in order to download custom tracks.

While the songs that are standard in the game are good, I personally enjoy playing songs I recognize. I was excited Beat Saber recently added the Imagine Dragons song pack. That is super fun and is available as paid downloadable content (completely worth it). If you mod, and download custom tracks, you do so “at your own risk.” I try to look at the likes vs dislikes on a track to try and make sure I don’t download something off beat or just not fun to play. If you do that, you can just delete the song and move on. BennyDaBeast is one of the best custom track creators out there so even if you don’t know or like the song, its probably worth the download and a play. His tracks flow well and provide a good bit of challenge.

I’ve posted many videos playing this game. And experimenting with the Green Screen (which is an endeavor in itself) makes the recording much more fun. I think I’ll set myself a task to record from the Imagine Dragons pack next.

Prepare to sweat!

I’m back

I took a long long break from trying to keep up a blog.  I’ve been so busy and as a result, pretty exhausted.  I finally finished my degree in Information Assurance and Security.  I still bake and fill orders.  I think I may expand that to offering edible prints (let me make my edible printer make me some money!).  I got a new job in the Information Security industry, although now I have a long daily commute but I think the job is worth it.  A lot of changes.

I still have my VR hobby and at this point I have aquired the Vive Pro, Oculus Rift, and Valve Index.  I still play the Vive the most, and the Index will probably come in a high second but I’m waiting on replacement foam pads for the headset before I play it too much.  I don’t know why everyone wants to have cloth or foam pads — it just soaks up the sweat (and or then absorbs make-up) and it makes it really difficult to share with others.

As for cooking — I haven’t been doing a lot of that simply because the time runs out in the day and I really value sleeping.  I am a sleeper.  It is my super power.  BUT I seem to need/want a lot of it.  So, usually that means I skip dinner or get something quick.  I do want to try to get back into Paleo – or maybe experiement with what GenoPalate has reported back to me.  If I’m feeling ambitious maybe combine the two.

Anyway, here’s to trying to stay dedicated to blogging this year — even if it is just for me. 🙂  Have a great work week folks.
