Crckrjack, Corey, and I tried the new quest last night. I think we played it for almost 2 hours and we must have gotten really close the last time because we were playing for 35 mins and the other quests are around 45 min total.

Crckrjack is way better than us and he carried us for. When wags, Corey, bmyoungs, and I tried it last week we couldn't even get through the first room. We did this easily every time last night.

There was a moment in the game where I've laughed the hardest in recent memory. The game puts you in a cabin and there is a huge ambush. We were all crawling around on the floor to survive and screaming at each other when we you downed. Corey started rolling around and poking his head through the wall (cheating). It was out of control. Maybe my new favorite VR gaming moment.

This quest is harder than the other because not all enemies spawn the same every time. We memorized the general layout when we could, but the numbers and type of enemies were not always the same.

I cant wait to try again with 3 or 4.

Super fun. with 4 people we easily would have gotten to the boss!

I like the bow and arrow one a lot more than the gun one. Both super fun though. I don't get as active during the gun one. In this one i would definitely say that I was doing much more crouching/leaning than in the 1st bow one.

Would play again.

We had basically 2.5 people tonight. Brad had to leave a little early and I kept getting disconnected. Brad left his character up luckily while he was AFK so that helped us a lot actually. It was also beneficial that if you died you could leave and come back and be alive.

We did soooo much better tonight and made it there so faster. We played for an hour and didn't make it to the boss.

Marshall has had quite the fever the last couple days. He's sleeping poorly also. Doctor said his first set of molars are coming in.

I'll have to play this when I'm not trying to be quiet though since I can't move around much being right next to his room

Was not our night last night. I can't believe we played one game on Tuesday and got as far as we did. We tried again last night and got hung up on some of the easier stages. I think we were rushing it too much because we were overly confident

My network issues aren't fixed but at least I got disconnected less often (possibly from switching routers?). It almost seemed like the more we progressed the more often it happened.

We tried the sandbox mode last night. You can pick any map/level and there is a vending machine on it. The host can spawn any weapon, sports equipment, etc from it. It was fun chasing each other around a huge empty map with all the different guns, but there was no order to it. The game alerts you when you are hit/hit someone, but it doesn't do any scoring. In this mode you are suppose to manually keep track of score. We didn't set up any rules or objectives though, so we just chase each other around and there was no winner or loser. Probably won't play it again unless they have rule sets you can choose from.

It's neat to be able to use whatever objects/weapons from other games, but without any score keeping or objectives it's not going to have much re-playability.

Since playing Rec Room last they have added Laser Tag. Corey and I played an hour of it today and won every game but 1. It's a lot like paintball, but there are bots to also kill and can kill you. I cant remember if Paintball does this, but it also limits your teleporting. It takes an extra second or 2 to lock on so you cant just instantly teleport all around the map.

I thought it was a lot of fun, but most of the game you won't even be within talking distance of your friends.

User submitted rooms/games. Every week they pick new ones. Some of these sound cool.

Corey, Wags, and I tried the new quest over the weekend. Initial thoughts are it is not as good as others.
-no ranged weapons. I think pistols are eventually added, but we didn't get far enough.
-I do not like the close quarters. This might open up later, but we didn't get far enough
-I prefer the points vs gold system. I hope the other quests still have points. It's hard to say who is the best player if you only get gold by finding chest vs kills/revives.
-Swords falling apart is dermb
-too hard! You need to get behind the skeletons to kill them.

We played lasertag though and had a lot of fun. I didn't like that it kept splitting up the teams every time, but it was still fun playing against you guys when I was paired up with Cox. I think this will be a lot of fun when they add the full locomation, but it will take some time to get use to. I do not like teleporting in competitive shooters.

We also tried a few of the user created rooms. RC Racing, Plinko, Adultzzzonlynounder18, maze, beer pong, etc. Those were actually really fun to screw around in.

The swords falling apart was my main issue. I died a few times because I was swinging at skeletons with nothing not noticing that my sword was broken.

Lol, we were confused at first about the cell, but I'm super smart so it only took us 4 minutes and 59 seconds to figure it out.

It was kind of cool that it started in an escape room like thing, but then it didnt continue that theme. I found out that the torch from the cannon can be used as a sword and doesn't ever break, but if you drop it its gone forever.

You can also kill your friends with the cannon.

Tested guys explain some things I didnt know about the new quest, like do not attack first. Wait for skeleton to attack, block, and then attack. You can also catch things thrown at you

Beta this weekend for Rec Royal. I checked it out and used the full locomotion option (not teleporting). Didn't feel motion sick at all and had quite a bit of fun. I didn't get any kills, but I got some good licks in. Beta is being extended through tomorrow.
