    Automatically generated charts are universally garbage in any rhythm game that supports them, so you're not missing much. As for copyrighted songs, there might not even be an official chart uploading website. There's already unofficial ones though.

    No custom songs on the quest and not crossbuy. So you pay the same price and get less game

    One two seven three..

    Yeah, saw this game on TikTok and it made me get that feeling of deep seated desire.

    I am so poor I haven't even got a battery for my laptop rn.

    The game doesn't look fun, it IS.

    If you don't mind inside out tracking and cheap feeling controllers, most Windows Mixed Reality headsets can be had for cheap as fuck. I spent $160 on mine, and it works great. Nearly every game that supports SteamVR supports WMR, and I've only come across a couple games that have issues with the inside out tracking.

    It's a pretty good entry point into VR, if you want to try and see if it's something you're interested in.

    By the definition of weeb, that's not a weeb tho. The player is a real Japanese.

    BTW, does anyone know if this game runs on Windows mixed reality headset?

    Nope. It's a VR game, can't play without VR.

    Yes, it works with WMR.

    My wife and I love this game, it's probably the whole reason we didn't sell the Rift when It became too much of a pain to set up every time we wanted to use it. It wasn't like selling the VR, it was like selling Beat Saber, we just couldn't lol.
    Dead and buried is also brilliant for anyone who hasn't tried it.

    If they now also add that level editor to the Quest version, I'd instabuy one.

    Having no custom songs kept me from considering any other version than the one on Steam.

    Come to think of it, you can play it without VR. Just watch a YouTube video and pretend to hit them with your hands :)



    If any GBAtemp members get VR, maybe I can sway them to Rec Room :ph34r:

    Rift S ins't wireless. It uses a USB 3.0 and a DisplayPort (both on a single cable)

    Actually, Rift S is as easy to set up as any WMR headset, because there are no external sensor and uses only one cable.

    As others have mentioned, Windows Mixed Reality headsets go on sale relatively often, so you could snag a headset for $180 - $200. Otherwise, PSVR exists for about $250 to $300. eBay or local game shops may have deals on PSVR. Either way, VR is really fun to get into and I can't recommend Beat Saber enough.

    Beat Saber tricks you into exercising. It is evil. Last week I downloaded some new maps and didn’t get to bed until 2AM and was completely drenched in sweat from playing for 2 hours.

    That’s a compliment in a way, because that means you played it until 2AM after you downloaded new maps :P
