    Beat Saber Livestream: Custom Songs Like Beat It, Take On Me, And More

    We’re diving back into Beat Saber for today’s livestream and focusing on our massive catalog of great custom tracks the community has produced. I’ve got 40 different custom tracks installed, plus the game’s original 10, so we should have plenty of content to peruse on today’s stream.

    If you’re unaware, Beat Saber is what you get when you mix DDR-style rhythm game with lightsabers and VR. Instead of stepping on arrows you’re slashing boxes and it’s one of the most satisfying things you can do in VR this side of The Lab.

    Here’s our full Early Access review for more about why we love it.

    We’ll be livestreaming Beat Saber on PC using an HTC Vive starting very soon (which means we’ll start at approximately 2:45PM PT) and aim to last for about an hour or so. We’re going to use Restream to hit both YouTube and Twitch at the same time!

    Embedded livestream coming soon

    You can see our archived streams all in this one handy Livestream playlist over on the official UploadVR YouTube channel (which you should totally subscribe to by the way). We’re also rebooting our Twitch channel too.

    Let us know which games you want us to livestream next and if you want to see more Beat Saber in the future. Comment with any feedback down below!

  • The Biggest Rift, Vive and Windows VR Releases Of The Week 07/01/18
    The Biggest Rift, Vive and Windows VR Releases Of The Week 07/01/18

    The summer sales are just about coming to a close, so hopefully the VR content drought is soon to end. That is to say there really isn’t much to talk about in the way of new releases this week. There are a handful of interesting games to take a look at, though.

    Camp Grizzly, from Blacksmith Studios
    Price: $7.99 (Rift, Vive)

    Who says VR is out of ideas? In Camp Grizzly, you must keep a group of kids entertained for as long as possible with your guitar. If a kid gets bored, it runs off and never comes back. Oh, also there’s a bear that will eat you if you don’t fend it off with a torch. See? There’s plenty of whacky games still to be discovered.

    18 Floors, from Aoga Tech
    Price: $14.99 (Rift, Vive)

    This is a spooky-looking episodic puzzle game. This includes the first two levels of a proposed 18-mission series in which you try and solve a galactic conspiracy and prevent humanity’s plan to kill a race of special beings. Look, I dunno, I’m just going with what the descriptions give me, okay?

    Vivez Versailles, from makemepulse
    Price: Free (Rift, Vive)

    This looks like a pretty great historical VR experience. It takes you to the Palace of Versailles in France to witness two historical events that took place in the building. You can explore the palace at your leisure and even take part in the famous masked ball held in its walls. Plus it’s free, and you can’t argue with that.

    PSN Mid-Year Sale Includes Deep Discounts On Over 50 PSVR Titles Like Skyrim, WipEout, And More

    The mid-year sale is underway on PSN and includes massive discounts of up to and over 60% on over 50 different PSVR titles, including Skyrim, Driveclub, and Arizona Sunshine. Massive store-wide sales like this don’t happen very often for PSVR (certainly not as much as Steam or Oculus Home) so if there are any that you’ve been holding out on then now is the time — they likely won’t be this cheap again for quite a while.

    We’ve got the full list of all 55 titles included below, as well as the current price with the mid-year discount. If you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber then you get an additional 10% off the current sale price. That’s a lot of savings!

    All titles are listed alphabetically and we’ve bolded particularly good games or deals with high value:

    The Biggest PSVR Releases Of The Week 07/01/18

    Winking Entertainment delivers the goods with not one but two new PSVR releases this week. Other than that things are pretty quiet on the PS4 front.

    The Walker, from Haymaker
    Price: $19.99

    An interesting-looking wave shooter that takes from Chinese mythology. You use magical weapons along with the usual assortment of pistols etc to gun down increasingly tougher waves of enemies. We haven’t been able to play it for ourselves yet but we have heard it’s a little light on content.

    18 Floors, from Aoga Tech
    Price: $14.99

    This is a spooky-looking episodic puzzle game. This includes the first two levels of a proposed 18-mission series in which you try and solve a galactic conspiracy and prevent humanity’s plan to kill a race of special beings.
