This is officially released. Crckrjack wants to play.

I saw Wilkins was in Rec Room so I joined him. We played Jumbotron Quest for 90 minutes. Teamed up with a guy that carried us pretty far and then a 4th player joined that carried us even more. They weren't the best players I've ever seen, but they knew way more about the levels than us.

Ended up with my first ever quest win. The game ended with Wilkins and me pinned down in a corner just by regular bots, sharing a gun, and reviving each other over and over. All during this the other 2 guys defeated Jumbotron without our help. After the fact one of the guys said he was doing a wall hack though, so that is why we were being shot at and not him.

All planned. We were distractions. MVP

Played last night with Wilkins, Corey, bennyschups and wags. Wilkins had to stop right away though.

We mostly did bowling, until we grew tired of standing and then did pictionary. Highlights of the night.
-Benny getting stuck in a wall and we had to quit the game
-wagner is stupid good at VR bowling. He had 7 strikes in one game
-bowling trick shots off the bar
-playing as goalie in the middle of the lane.

I haven't seen any details yet, but I heard there is suppose to be a spooky Quest level that is released in time for Halloween. Who wants to play?

New quest is soooo spooky. Limited to 3 players. Hard to play with 2 since we lie a lot. Random 3rd joined bmyoungs and me and we did a lot better, even though he wasn't any better than us. Just 1 extra person to help revive. Once you get the whip things get really fun.

Played with Corey and bmyoungs last night. We did way better than the first time we tried the new Quest. If we played again we could make it to th check point in 15-20 minutes. The checkpoint does not save between play sessions, so will need to start over.

Right after the check point was a giant boss that we were not mentally, physically, or emotionally ready to beat last night.

Bmyoungs and I both used free locomotion vs teleporting. I think it made it easier to evade, but teleporting you can travel difficult terrain easier. Both Brad and I were starting to feel a little icky after playing an hour. Our VR legs aren't as strong as we thought they were, I think Brad felt it worse than me. Corey tried 7 seconds of it and went back to teleporting. Next time we play I'll try both styles again before deciding on my favorite.

Yeah I was dizzy for at least an hour after we finished.
