Hi Matt, new member here. A couple of you friended me on Oculus presumably because I’m a (real world) friend of krayzkrok, so I found out where you were all hiding :)
Thanks for your interesting ranking of the Beat Saber DLC. I’ve been playing since November and finished the campaign before starting to get the extra music packs. Weirdly, I have the bottom five in your list but not the top three. There’s no accounting for taste I guess!
My experience has been that the add-on packs are on average one level harder than the built-in ones. So ‘hard’ for the Linkin Park dlc is about the same as ‘expert’ on $100 bils etc. Do you find this as well?
I’ve found with Beat Saber that my sweet spot between challenge and enjoyment are the hard levels - they’re easy enough that I can usually get a full combo, but challenging enough to make me feel like a jedi. On expert I’m mostly just anxious about ‘that really difficult section’ that’s coming up in the middle, and whether I’ll have to hear that really depressing music slowdown effect when I fail.
At the moment my ego is lifted by constantly beating krayzkrok’s best scores on hard using the modifiers if necessary :D but he’s gradually catching up! If he gets these new prescription lenses he might even be able to see well enough to move to Expert :D
Anyway, Beat Saber is the only action game I play - everything else is puzzlers and narratives (oh, and Flight Simulator 2020!) I am 50 years old after all. Having more Oculus friends might encourage me to play more multiplayer stuff though. I tried playing Beat Saber online with krayzkrok and it worked pretty well even with his terrible wifi, but we didn’t try it while in a ‘live party’ so I’m not sure if the voice coms would be a disaster while the music is playing. Anyone tried it?
