I'm so glad we randomly decided to play this tonight and that we stumbled into the room we did. First, VRchat is basically a way less polished version of the metaverse from Ready Player One. You join different rooms and interact with people. Avatars can be anything. Rick and Morty, Street fighter, Disney, 6" tall tinker Bell, anything!

There are built in rooms, like a lobby and some mini games, but there are also user created experiences. The highlight of the night was getting into an open mic night. When we joined the room there was a Rick, in character, greeting people and bringing them to their seats. There was a host with a full line up. Groups of people were back stage getting ready. Everyone (40 ish people) took a virtual seat and muted themselves so they didn't talk over the performers.

The acts we saw were:
1) short story. Didn't try to follow it. Corey and I were talking in a private chat about how awesome everything was
2) improv 3 some.
3) singer
4) stand up
5) another short story
6) singer/piano

This whole thing was put in my users, it wasn't the game creators. Corey and Wags almost got kicked out a few times. They made things awkward.

I'll try to find a YouTube example later. It was the first time for the open mic format, but the improv people meet often and have filmed it.

It is kinda neat how they organized the whole "show". And the only reason I almost got kicked out was because I didn't like that one person's long ass boring story and they couldn't take the criticism of a thumbs down. Corey was being a dik4 and throwing thumbs downs in that one guy's face.

It wasn't constructive criticism! You should have given feedback afterwards on ways to improve.

I never said constructive. Just criticism.

Lol. I'm just defending the people who had the courage to read their awful short stories in front of a room of virtual strangers

That night was probably the most fun I've had in VR. We need to have a regular VR night again.

Corey and I messed around for a few hours and Kyle joined via the non-VR way. He is limited, like can't use hands, but I think he had fun screwing around. Best part is Corey found a schedule so we know when the events are going on. Tonight was the only night this month that didn't have anything so we had to make our own fun. Seeing David Blaine was probably the highlight of the night, and Corey being a worm avatar.

They have something this Friday... I'm not sure what time zone when it says 7. I also don't know how you find the actual world, we lucked into it our first time.
