#Blaugust2019 – VR and PS4

I tried “Beat Sabre” for the first time months ago at Sian and Michael’s place. Since then it has been a game I could not get out of my head and one I wanted to buy. Hubby and I even spent weeks pouring over all the VR options and prices to determine the best possible option for us given we had alienware laptops capable of handling VR we were mostly swinging towards the HTC Vive.

Then Ben and Oui confirmed they were going to move to Melb and we decided to put our purchase on hold as they had a PS4 with VR. I was happy to save ourselves a couple of thousand bucks in the short term to wait a few months and then see how much we actually used the VR.

I have watched so many videos for beat saber and been hanging to get back into, Michael has told me many times to just come around and play it. But I think I would feel like a crack addict getting a hit, so have patiently waited.

Sunday night though, after the guys had done some unpacking and setting up of bits and pieces. Ben fired up the PS4 and I was super excited. I jumped into Beat Saber with happiness.

I played in easy mode for a few songs and was not finding it much of a challenge, but I wanted to get back into it slowly. Since it would have been impolite to monopolise the entire PS4 Hubby and Ben did a couple of sings as well. They both did it at harder levels than me and did exceptionally well. The motion sickness was there, but tolerable, when I was playing but watching other people play was really difficult when they moved their head. I will have to be ultra careful with this one.

We then decided to have a few goes at “Just Dance 2019”. I have seen this at PAX almost every year and have wondered how to play it because everyone looks like they are having a lot of fun. Now I know, I might have a shot this year.

I was doing very well, even when I was following the wrong person on screen for an entire song ..OOPS!! There was some very weird dancing animations though, this frog being the main one in my opinion.

But I was getting “Superstar” pretty often which Ben was surprised at because he didn’t even know it was a thing – I was surprised as well because it didn’t feel like I was going particularly well.

I was very very very sore the next morning because we had been playing for about 3 hours but I was having so much fun!!

I can’t wait to get home and play some more beat saber!!!
