March is the month of my birthday, and I had fun where able in VRchat. Had fun both in and outside of the game having nice memorable images to look back on. Posting contains 114 images.
March was a quieter month than usual, even if it was a special month to me. Even though it was my special month (my birthday month) I had noticeably less hours in playtime, though managed to balance that out with some nice sessions in the “less is more” manner. Focused more on taking images, hung out with my friends, and even hung out in at least one of Nagzz21’s hangouts. I was also playing other (desktop mode) games while waiting on new Oculus Rift tangling cables to be shipped (slowly startled tangling on 3rd week again) before I could go into VR. I had work to deal with also, and just generally spaced out. As much as I try chewing Oculus for being stingy and cheap they just don’t listen. The cable is slowly starting to tangle again to the point I’m trying to keep it straight…. I’m gradually losing the war again on the tangling cables.
Yeah, I’m frustrated with Oculus’s cheap behavious. You spend well over $500+ Canadian (plus extra for computer upgrades) and the shitty Oculus Cables tangles ruining it all. You buy a headset and it just tangles…. Common…. Braid the god damn thing to make them anti-tangle. Though, on the flip-side, because I obtained the new cable I gained a new POV on VRchat; A new perspective. I can now do things I haven’t done before, and it’s fun! I’m not trying to be negative though, I’m just trying to note my thoughts for that moment, and I do put up with the various frustrations because VR is worth it. Going VR is awesome because everything is different, you can do so much, and everything appears all so unique and welcoming. I love VR, I love VRchat, and I love the friends I’ve made in there making VRchat & VR awesome.
Though, can’t always hang out with friends 100% of the time so I was also found spending my time solo’ing through VRchat. Just lone-exploring VRchat trying to take it chill. Also, if anything sounds “negative” or “whiny” I’m sorry. I’m just trying to note things. If it does do tell and I’ll try and further spin it into neutral or positive sounding words. Struggling to keep it neutral.
March started off with the usual world hopping, something we do often. We still do, just not as frequently because of my technical difficulties. Fix one, and another random error pops up. Always fighting something, but we always had fun traveling worlds. The fun we have always over-rides any negativity because of how awesome these friends are :). From my new VRchat home (view previous blog posting), to an anime theater, Christmas world, and other fun worlds. “Chill” 🙂
I’m sorry I always do this, and I do honestly try being positive, but I was feeling “down” here in some light fashion. I blame my work for making me fatigue making me feel “semi-depressed”. I was just tired with the tiredness/fatigue probably being the source of my light depression. Even with that I still mostly enjoyed my time there, just felt….. “semi-sidelined”….. Even with that feeling I still had a lot of fun, I love looking at the images we’ve taken, and how much fun we had. Checking out surreal winter maps, avatars, yo-yo’ing, and all that awesome stuff. Even Lenn from SAO, among other fun amusements. It’s the fun which I love VRchat for.
Depression hits you when you least want it. I honestly want to be positive, just depression tends to be a pain. I however stayed on admiring the beauty of the yo-yo’ing, the secrets, and such. Even loved Blue’s adorable reactions <3. Seeing Blue snickering, seeing Hunt having fun…. It all warms my heart. Even the worlds we visit have that healing effect.
VRchat is awesome in how people made it a positive platform. Even though I was fatigued, cursed at Oculus’s faulty cables (still the old tangled one during this session), I still stayed online being a part of various shenanigans. Even when I idled for a long while I was warmly welcomed back in by being nudged into various current shenanigans, whatever they would be. I would also later find Kobi lurking, even playing hide-and-seek in that tag manner; I was “it” having to find Kobi where he would take advantage of the map and hide in various ways. Even teleporting. We would do this for a good solid 10-20 minutes before I had to call it a night at nearly 4 am in the morning.
Even though I was fatigued in a semi-depressive manner I still managed to stay on. I had fun, I lurked, I have fun memorable moments, and those memories are fun to recall. The “feeling” of the memories is strange, yet also nostalgic. It’s like a unique anime episode with how weighted it is while with its own “flavour”. Hard to put feelings into words. What you see is what you feel.
March 15 – From the last session I had to wait a few days (a week/few weeks) to receive my new cable to partake in VRchat fun again. It was good to be back, and actually in standing posture manner. Glad to kneel, stand, and everything. I can feel freedom!
A shame Oculus doesn’t know what freedom means with their cable. You can feel this freedom only as long as the Oculus Rift cable doesn’t tangle. I love how VRchat feels when you play it proper. The charm truly comes out the more you interact and have fun in various ways. It feels good exploring the unknown constantly 🙂
When I jumped in I eventually saw Hunt & Blue roaming about VRchat, yet decided to stay on the side for a bit without joining them just to see what would happen.Basically warming up and being a “Lurking fox”. Renge is a fox, foxes lurk, so I waited for the “right moment” to lurk. Renge is a robotic personification on a Japanese fox spirit from a shrine 🙂
When I met up with Hunt I could hear something was off with him, then he noted he was “sick”. Felt bad for him but we had our warm greetings, headpats for Blue, and we explored. We had fun though exploring, grabbing group photos, and solving mazes. Even teased a bit myself because I was supposed to figure out a maze on my own when I naturally suck at them. I kept going one direction when I should have gone another direction. I was even jokingly hinted to go a different manner. I’m not a puzzle person.
It was fun though, and I love the quoting below because VRchat also does unexpected things when you least expect them.
“Things are not always as they appear to be”
When we both felt we’ve explored all of Suzuka we headed over to Pac-man. Saw it played earlier, thus checked it out for ourselves to see what it was all about. It was worth the visit. I was amused how you had to hold assets to eat the dots while others would chase you, even the AI. You had a screen you would look at orientating you as to where to go. Nice implementation.
10/10, would play again to eat dots. Wakka Wakka Wakka!~
Was asked if I was “having fun” when taking pictures. Of course! VRchat has one of the best picture taking capabilities making it highly prefered over anything else. A few VR games are able to boast this versatility, power, and fun. Konami killed Battle Rondo without making the Diorama Studio standalone, Illusion Game’s +18 requires heavy modding, and etc. I would have to use MMD, Source Film maker, and such. I would have to struggle heavily. VRchat makes things peacefully easy.
If only other picture taking software was as easy and as powerful to use as VRchat with high variety of characters to choose from.
This second session of March also shows how much I love hanging in VRchat till the wee hours of the morning of 4 am. Thankfully, it was 1:38 am when I decided to hop off for that night to stay a bit sane. Again, loving VRchat for how warm and welcoming it is to play, thus why I blog and post about it so much. Lots of fun images to look back on while recalling fun moments 🙂
March 22 – Was having fun proudly playing Fate/Extella Link because I could FINALLY play as Scathach in Fate/Extella Link. Loved when I first unknowingly summoned her in F/GO (a crappy mobile game) where she is portrayed as an overly serious woman with the perfect voice style. She’s serious because she wants to die for being immortal for having fought humans, gods, undead, and all sorts between the living and the dead, thus her appearance. Her personality is “proud”, yet “dead” with how you can see she’s stuck in between realms with her immortality and her red eyes. Even if she’s understandably suicidal I still do love her seriousness because she’s not like any other characters. I love her style to the point she’s like Esdese from Akame Ga Kill, or Bismarck and Warspite from KanColle, or similar characters like those.
For how she was my first special rare Servant in Fate/Grand Order (JP) side I admire her highly. Others may ruin her by crowding to her, yet I love Scathach’s style and art. While others may fake their love, I admire her not in an obsessive and yandere manner, but naturally. Well, what I basically view as “naturally”. I don’t have a body pillow, nor do I highly obsess about her, but I do admire her awesomeness where I try and keep things balanced. Though, I am looking into getting a body pillow of Scathach, but that’s beside the point *laughs*. I loved my streaming Fate/Extella Link on Twitch because Scathach is awesome in that game.
VRchat side of things though…… My friend ‘Hunt’ teased an image of a chibi Scathach in VRchat causing me to instantly jump into VRchat to check this out. Was awesome seeing that mini chibi Scathach, yet wish they were animated in some manner. I was however happy he stumbled across this world though making me aware they had this. Thanks Hunt!
Was a lovely night. This session was one of the better ones because it was pure enjoyment without any fatigue or depressiveness tied to it. Hopping on because of my love for Scathach (My waifu, my avatar) while also checking out the Fate world, Nier Automata, and wrapping up on a Resident Evil map. Had fun hanging out with my friends in VRchat making it all so awesome just chatting, hanging out, and just admiring the beauty of heavily detailed worlds, thus three worlds that night. Delta hadn’t checked out the Resident Evil map thus we checked it out before we all hopped off for the night. It was one of my first maps when joining VRchat (and in VR) so it holds memorable moments for me 🙂
March 25th’s session was an odd one. I should have joined Hunt & Blue, yet my mood prevented me from doing so because of the ‘fatigue’. Yup, the ‘semi-depression’ forcing me in ‘lurking’ mode. Foxes do lurk, yeah. Had fun exploring worlds though checking out various ones, such as this strange Star Wars one, while having fun admiring all the other ones. If I can take images in them then they’re awesome 🙂
Had fun. Even if it was solo I still had fun by tuning more into the map, explored many more maps, and just admired things. Aoto Train was a nice map, and I still do remember it the most.
March 26 – Was expecting to hang out with a buddy to only end up solo. I pushed this session into a more photo-shooting session, something which yielded many awesome photos to admire.
March 30 – A few days after my birthday, and a few minutes after a Nagzz21 Patreon hangout, I went world hopping for a few. I had fun celebrating my birthday wanting the hangout to be a part of that birthday celebration. Nagzz21’s hangout was neat, and more can be seen in the [Article itself].
To those who wished me a “happy Birthday”, I do thank you guys highly for doing so. It means a lot because you guys took a few moments remembering and taking the time to post the birthday wishes. That means a lot to me. Thanks again! 🙂
Yeah, March 28th was my birthday having spent it playing ‘Don’t Starve Together’ because that’s how we set things up. With the way my computer behaves I couldn’t stream VRchat. Wanted to play a game with everybody, or tried to. It was a fun night.
March 31st – It’s just fun hopping into VRchat to see what new worlds people had made. Like the night sky with the shooting stars, the Fox World Kemono Friends, and such. Glad to be hanging out with my friends again.
The below images with the lamp is in respect to our friend Maiya. We call her Maiya Moth because of a merged Rising World & Twitch joke/meme reference of Maiya seeking out lamps. We went with it; Maiya went with it going with the full lamp-moth meme to the point we call her out on it when we see any references in VRchat or other games.
Was still fun even though I was stuttering every few moments because of computer overheating, or something. The constant stuttering of my computer made me apparently sound like a robot so I was nicknamed ‘Mr. Robot’. Seems fitting seeing how Renge is a robotic fox spirit, though Renge is a female, not male. Technicalities.
The Oculus Rift cable from earlier in the month is fine, and I’m happy it’s mended. Even if it wants to curl up and tangle again. This time it’s my computer overheating causing me to lag-stutter badly to the point I would lag when streaming, and it’s baffling me. May be a cooling issue on computer so I may have to focus on that next. Also noting this because I was given the nickname of ‘Mr. Robot’. Always something, I’m sorry.
Even through any troubles we still find ways to have fun, and that’s what I love about hanging out with my friends with. Just hanging out, having fun, and admiring the beauty all around. That’s how we get these images <3.
March was an interesting month, even if there were fewer sessions to play VRchat. It was however balanced out with the number of images I had taken during the session I could manage to play, thus I’m happy. 114 images to share, and that’s not including my friend’s images. No complaints. Had fun hanging out with my buddies, Nagzz21 Patreon hangout, among other things. Even for having fun while having memorable moments during my birthday month.
Again, to those who wished me a Happy Birthday, I thank them highly. Thanks for noticing my birthday and wishing me a Happy birthday!
