2023.06.05 16:28 Sleeplesswlflwr Cannot access vinyl sheets for stickers — is paper alright?

Heya, I’m 16 and I started off making stickers about a year ago just for fun and since I’ve been planning to open an etsy store. Well, I live in South Africa and these types of things aren’t as popular, or so I’ve seen. I’ve been searching for printable vinyl EVERYWHERE and I just can’t seem to find the right one that won’t break my printer or my budget. (Seeing as ordering off amazon from here would just drive up the cost by insane amounts and the local vinyl is too thick for my printer…) I acknowledge that owning a business is a big investment, so maybe I shouldn’t be complaining too much,, but I also want to save as much money as possible while starting out.
There are, however, many self adhesive paper alternatives and I was wondering if that would work, until I can get my hands on some vinyl. I was thinking of sticker packs for journals and laptops maybe? Anything that won’t be in contact with too much water as the lamination I’m using only protects from so much. Do people mind?
I don’t mind having to wait to find vinyl, just want to know what to do with all the extra sticker paper I have left over and if it might be profitable. If it helps, you can write on that paper before it’s laminated, no idea what to do with it though.

"There are things of the Abyss that are left unexplored and undiscovered. Things beyond our understanding. For to see or hear or try to comprehend them is to lose one's grip on reality and plunge into a fathomless pit of madness.
Of The Entity I know little, if anything at all. What I have witnessed and concluded through my imprisonment within its timeless living boundaries, is The Entity seems to move through the cosmos like a primordial Titan. An incomprehensible Serpent of Chaos, consuming people and worlds for reasons I cannot even begin to comprehend... and won't even try."
-The Observer, Excerpt from Arcus 07

The Entity's Chosen

The Survivors


Realm of Origin: Avatar: the Last Airbender
The prodigal child of Fire Lord Ozai, Azula was the one set to take the throne once her father had conquered the world. After being defeated by her brother Zuko, Azula went mad and was confined to a mental health institution. Years later she was temporarily released by Zuko, now the Fire Lord, in order to search for their long lost mother. Though they were successful in their mission, Azula fled into the Forgotten Valley, unable to accept the reality that she would never be Fire Lord and that her mother truly loved her. It is here where she is taken, her fragile mental state making a prime candidate for the new Trials.


Realm of Origin: League of Legends
Biography: Sylas of Dregbourne was born with the rare gift of being able to see magic in people. Recruited by the mageseekers of Demacia, he served them dutifully until he met a young girl he refused to turn in. Imprisoned with the mages he had helped capture, Sylas found his hatred for the nobility of Demacia to grow with each passing day. After discovering that the petricite shackles that bind him allow him to absorb magic, he used this ability to escape his execution. After a failed attempt to assassinate the Demacian king, Sylas fled to the wilderness with his fellow mages to plot to return the kingdom to its rightful owners: the people. Unfortunately, it seems the Entity has new plans for him.


Realm of Origin: Katana Zero
Subject Zero, or just Zero, once served in the Cromag War as a soldier conditioned through the NULL project. With the drug Chronos allowing him to slow time and see glimpses of the future to find the best possible scenario to win any combat encounter, he was nigh unstoppable. After the war he would work as an assassin for his psychiatrist, who would supply him with Chronos to keep the vivid nightmares and hallucinations out of his head. After discovering the truth about himself, however, Zero murdered his psychiatrist in a blind rage. Now only having a limited supply of Chronos in his bloodstream, Zero must survive the Entity's Realm before he becomes trapped in his mind forever.

The Killer

The Purifier

Realm of Origin: Magic: the Gathering
The archangel Avacyn was created by the Planeswalker Sorin Markov in order to act as a protector for the humans of Innistrad. After being corrupted by the magical influence of the Lithomancer Nahiri, Avacyn began to view humanity as impure and sought to cleanse them as such. Sorin returned to Innistrad and undid the spell that had created Avacyn, destroying her for good. Now the High Priestess of the Black Vale in the Entity's Realm, Avacyn seeks to create a series of new Trials to not only curb her boredom but perhaps something more…

The Cathedral of the Entity

The Void

The first of them was a human, emaciated and hairless. His face was obscured by a gas mask. He never walked, always choosing to hover about. As he flew toward her, Avacyn could see her priests recoil in his mere presence, grabbing hold of their heads as his telepathy probed into the minds of all of those near him.
"Let's get started then, shall we?" The man in the gas mask said.
"First you must partake in a ritual to receive the Boons of the Entity." Avacyn told him. The glow around the Auris faded away and it settled back onto her palm. She reattached it to her belt.
"Boons?" Asked the burning man.
"Indeed. The Dark Mother is not as cruel a host as one might believe. She will provide you with additional strength in your Trials." Avacyn stared momentarily at the vampire who glowered in response.
Avacyn turned to the altar, waving to what hung above it. Four wreaths, each of them assigned to the virtues of the Entity's Killers, were strung there by a length of rope. Each of them provided a different Boon to those who offered them in reverence to the Dark Mother.

2023.06.05 16:27 Babycloud20 12 Ways to Foster Emotional Attachment with Your Baby

12 Ways to Foster Emotional Attachment with Your Baby
Building a strong emotional attachment with babies is essential for their overall development and well-being. Here are some ways to increase emotional attachment with babies:

Skin-to-skin contact: Regularly holding your baby against your bare skin helps create a sense of security and warmth, promoting emotional bonding.

Eye contact and facial expressions: Maintain eye contact and engage in positive facial expressions, such as smiling, to communicate love, affection, and attentiveness to your baby.

Gentle touch and cuddling: Regularly cuddle and touch your baby in a gentle and loving manner. This physical connection promotes a sense of security and comfort.

Respond promptly to their needs: Babies rely on caregivers to meet their needs, so responding promptly to their cries, hunger, or discomfort builds trust and reassurance.

Talk and sing to your baby: Regularly engage in soothing conversation, sing lullabies, or narrate daily activities to create a comforting environment and help them bond with your voice.

Play and interact: Spend quality time engaging in age-appropriate play and interactive activities with your baby. This includes peek-a-boo, tickling, or playing with toys, which helps establish a positive emotional connection.

Be attentive and present: Be fully present and attentive when interacting with your baby. Minimize distractions and show genuine interest in their actions, sounds, and gestures.

Establish routines: Babies thrive on predictability and routine. Creating consistent daily routines, such as feeding, bathing, and sleeping schedules, helps them feel secure and nurtured.

Babywearing: Using a baby carrier or sling to keep your baby close to you while you go about your day promotes a sense of closeness and allows for increased physical contact.

Co-sleeping or room sharing: For those comfortable with it, sharing a sleeping space with your baby or having them sleep in the same room can foster a stronger emotional bond due to increased proximity during sleep.

Provide comfort during distress: When your baby is upset, offer comfort through soothing words, gentle touch, or holding them close to help them regulate their emotions and develop a sense of security.

Engage in positive daily rituals: Incorporate special daily rituals, such as reading a bedtime story, giving a goodnight kiss, or singing a specific song during routine activities, to create a sense of connection and predictability.

Remember, building emotional attachment takes time and consistency. Every baby is unique, so it's important to observe and respond to their individual cues and preferences. By providing love, care, and consistent nurturing, you'll be fostering a strong emotional bond with your baby.

2023.06.05 16:27 SlowShoes Quick thoughts on 30 different VR games

I'm keeping track of all the VR games I’ve played this year to catalogue them in hopes that they may give fellow VR gamers some fresh games to try out, or reasons to revisit older games that have had big updates. I'm currently up to 52 different VR games played this year. The first 22 that I played from January to March can be found here. The latest 30 games are mostly on the Quest, but many are available on PCVR.
Some of the games listed below, I can see playing all year long, others are not my cup of tea, but they may interest you enough to try them out. In either case, here are my quick thoughts on the 30 games I’ve played during April and May of 2023.
TLDR: My top 5 games to check out are at the bottom and so is some info for a game giveaway.

  1. ARK and ADE $9.99 Quest / Steam My quick take: A fun shooter with Pistol Whip vibes that is absolutely worth the price of admission. From the store page: “ARK and ADE is an action-jammed FPS shooter in which you get to experience the glory of the 80’s arcade era in a neon fused setting. Shoot your way through retro-futuristic levels filled with enemies, iconic over the top bosses and never ending bullets!” I played this game back when it was in App Lab before it graduated to the full store. It was such a fun shooter back then, and I’d look forward to new levels coming out every few months. Now that it made it out of app lab, has a bunch of levels and had the gameplay polished, it’s absolutely worth a pickup, especially for that price.
  2. Project Third Eye $9.99 Quest My quick take: A game where you make your own fun. From the store page: “Project Third Eye is an action physics sandbox with a built-in visual scripting panel to apply logic to spawnable items. This allows you to build your own modifications to the game and customize behaviors as you like.” Just like the description says, this is more of a proof of concept and sandbox game more so than a full fledged game with objectives. There are certainly neat ideas here and there, and the dev is really active with updates on Reddit. If you like to experiment and see how concepts develop in a game, you may enjoy this, but there’s no real direction beyond experimenting, so I dropped off fairly quickly.
  3. Jousting VR Demo $9.99 Quest / Steam Quest Demo My quick take: A bit light on gameplay, but there is some charm here. From the store page: “XIII century, Europe, royal market courtyard. You are a knight who joined the medieval tournament. Your task is 'simple.' Jump on your trusty steed, grab your lance & defeat the enemy. Take into consideration speed, accuracy, strength. Equipment is also important. The better gear the easier the task. Oh, and other knights - they want to win as much as you do.” As advertised, it's a jousting game in VR. I enjoyed the demo, but honestly it was a bit too finicky at times and just not worth a full buy to me. The atmosphere was fun though and there was a progression loop for those who get into it.
  4. Demeo $39.99 Quest and Steam (flatscreen as well) My quick take: This is a great game that I revisited from start to finish with four players. A must own. From the store page: “Adventurers, it’s time to unite! Gather your friends and fight monsters in Demeo, the turn-based tabletop strategy game of battle and glory. Roll dice, pick up miniatures, and free the world of Gilmerra in round after round of tabletop board game fun. With a huge assortment of monsters, playable classes, and environments to explore, it’s never the same game twice." I finally got a chance to play through the entirety of the game in VR with four friends, through each world, while trying a variety of characters. We even made a video ranking the best players and levels. It really is a solid dungeon crawling adventure. With 2 or more friends, this game really shines and is such a fun ride, despite how punishing the bosses can be. This is the closest you can get to D&D in VR without having a dungeon master. Well worth the asking price.
  5. Build and Drive Racing Demo Free Quest / Steam My quick take: Early days in development, maybe something to keep an eye on to see how it improves. From the store page: "Get ready for a new experience on Windows desktop and VR, where you get to build your ultimate racing machine, tailored to your driving style and optimized for performance, or race to the finish line with a monster what makes you smile. With stylised graphics and arcade-like physics, every turn, straightway and ramp will put your skills to the test. Feel the thrill of the race like never before in VR, as you immerse yourself counting the seconds on the home stretch." An early demo that has seen some updates. Maybe worth looking at in a few months after a bit more development. I did like what I saw, but honestly, if you’re looking for a finished racing game, try Mini Motor Racing X instead or some of the other heavier PCVR games available.
  6. Les Mills Body Combat $29.99 Quest My quick take: No subscriptions, great coaches and fun workouts that will make you sweat. From the store page: “Work out at home with a premium fitness app. LES MILLS, the world's leading fitness company, brings the BODYCOMBAT experience to your VR headset with an extensive workout portfolio, top-quality coaching, innovative mechanics, and different intensities.” With no subscriptions or hidden fees, lots of workouts, motivating coaches and the ability to compete with friends on leaderboards, this really is a dynamite workout app. I was working up a good sweat during my workouts, so be sure you have good facial insert and a fan ready. Highly recommended if you want a workout in VR for just the price of entry.
  7. Interkosmos 2000 $19.99 Quest / Steam My quick take: A difficult puzzle game, but rewarding if you have the patience. From the store page: “Go to space. Save the Future. Try not to Die. Welcome (back) to the world of Interkosmos for an even wilder, weirder and more wondrous adventure. Experience the intense exhilaration of spaceflight. Explore the awe-inspiring interiors of a realistic space capsule. Master the crucial systems that will keep you in orbit (and breathing). And while you’re at it, try your best not to die. Should you complete your mission, you just might save the future – and yourself. Should you fail? Let’s not think about that.” An intense puzzle game where you’re piloting a space ship with some very finicky controls. I found the experience way too difficult and exacting. Along with a bit of bugginess, that didn’t help in me determining if the error was my fault or the game's. If you have the patience, there certainly is some rewarding gameplay here, and an interesting story, but I found it all a bit too much to see to the end.
  8. The Light Brigade $24.99 Quest / Steam My quick take: In a world of rougelikes, this is one that stands out. From the store page: “As a member of The Light Brigade, humanity’s last line of defense, brave ruins bathed in darkness and free the trapped souls who need the salvation only your gun can provide. Shoot, master spells, and upgrade your capabilities to herald the Sun’s return in this roguelike VR shooter.” There’s quite a lot of rouge shooters on Quest and despite the plethora of choices, this one stands out. Be warned, it starts out slowly, but gets quite fun after you get to know the systems after about an hour in. While I did make it to the last boss, I died and never went back to finished it. The gameplay loop and dynamic levels were solid though. The slight upgrades and different classes during each run were interesting and kept me going for a while. The most frustrating time I had was learning the little tips, tricks and finer gameplay points, but it was worth the push through that initial rough patch.
  9. Resident Evil 4 $39.99 Quest My quick take: One of the best games in VR. A must own. From the store page: “Explore the world of Resident Evil 4, entirely remastered for VR. Step into the shoes of special agent Leon S. Kennedy on his mission to rescue the U.S. President’s daughter who was kidnapped by a mysterious cult. Come face to face with enemies, and uncover secrets with gameplay that revolutionized the survival horror genre. Battle horrific creatures and face-off against mind-controlled villagers while discovering their connection to the cult behind the abduction.” I forgot so much about this game from when I first played it 18 years ago on the GameCube. The long length, fun characters and how exciting the gun play is, all just came together perfectly. The development team spent a ton of time getting the VR feeling just right, and it’s absolutely one of the best on the Quest and well worth the price of entry. Additionally, once you play through the game the first time it really changes from survival horror to a whole new type of game action game. Simply outstanding.
  10. Mini Golf Hustler Free Quest My quick take: Early days in development. Some good ideas, but a bit too rough around the edges. From the store page: “Challenge Slick Willie Puttman in this FREE nine hole demo of Mini Golf Hustler. Hazards include armed torpedoes, tentacled arms, ornery tikis and more! Multiple betting games, including skins, match play and the fearsome traveling snake. All played at the same time.” I thought I’d check out another mini golf game to see what other ideas there might be outside of the king - Walkabout Mini Golf. While there were some solid ideas for holes, the betting felt uneven, and everything else felt in their very early stages. To be fair, no other mini golf game feels even close to the accuracy of Walkabout, so I think it’s a tough go for any other games to match. It's probably best to stick with the champ for now, but I applaud the dev for trying something different.
  11. Pin City Free Quest (open beta on Discord) / Steam My quick take: Early days, but wow, worth a download and one to watch in the future. From the store page: "Pin City is a bowling game unlike any other bowling game you’ve played before. We strove to bring the spirit of mini-golf into the world of bowling. We’ve taken the standard bowling setup (straight lane, 10 pins, 1 ball) and expanded, transformed, and evolved it. We wanted to give people a chance to bowl in ways that would be impossible, illegal, or extremely impractical.” An early alpha game, but boy, what a great start, I’m really looking forward to the team getting the physics feeling right with weight and feel of the bowling balls and seeing how much more gameplay they can add. Really worth the download or heading over to their Discord to get a Quest key for free to try it out. The quirky bowling, physics and gameplay they're experimenting with really got me excited to see how this one comes together in the next several months.
  12. Mash Me Up Free Quest My quick take: Please devs, add more multiplayer support! From the store page: “Do you want to play party games with your friends or meet someone new? All is just one button press away with Mash Me Up. One button, multiple games. Will it be Air Hockey, Pier Pong, Flingball, or… Get ready for a surprise! Press, Play, Enjoy and Go Again!” If this game got a bit more development love it would be incredible. As it stands now, there are several mini games you can play against one person. Most are just okay, but a handful are real gems, and one particularly is incredible - Geo Guesser. Hands down the best mini game in the pack. With four, or six players and some new content, they could easily charge for just this one game. As it stands now, it’s a great two player game, but you’ll need to bring your own friend as the servers are pretty barren. Worth a download though for sure as you’ll get a night of fun out of it.
  13. THZZLS - Treasures Lost In Time $4.99 Quest My quick take: A unique puzzler that can be pretty relaxing, but repetitive. From the store page: “Our first THZZLE is called "Der Bazar", the world's first VR toy theatre puzzle game. The Bazar is a VR puzzle game where you have to place furniture and props in the right places in old-fashioned rooms according to an old picture you see. The game is set in 19th century Germany and each room has objects taken from the German lifestyle magazine "Der Bazar", published in Berlin.” This one used to be free, with paid content, but it has since changed as they added more content. You recreate a scene with cutouts of people and furniture in a 3D space. It seemed to have endless puzzles with randomization of scenes. I could see someone going to this for a relaxing 10-15 minutes, but it is a lot of the same each time and didn’t grab me fully. If you’re looking for a puzzle game that’s outside of the usual ones you find in the store, it’s not a bad choice for the price. Keep in mind though its hand tracking only, so for some that may be a non starter, even though it felt just fine.
  14. Barbaria $19.99 Quest / Steam My quick take: What I imagine Gorn is like with a solid game loop of RTS. From the store page: “Do you have what it takes to be the Mightiest in Barbaria? Welcome to a brutal world where visceral motion-controlled combat blends seamlessly with god-scale base-building and asynchronous multiplayer raids. Use fists, axes, swords, bows, rocks, or anything you can grab to dominate your foes in intense 1st-person combat. Then jump out to your immortal form and watch your minions carry on the battle while you rain down meteors from above. Systemic combat, versatile enemy AI, and player-created defenses make every battle unique.” I recognize there is a lot here to do in this game - if you like the game loop. Unfortunately, it really didn’t do much for me. I was expecting more RTS than Gorn style gameplay and was not pulled in by the fighting or quests offered. I have to say that the humor was spot on, and it certainly had good visuals, the game was just not for me. All that being said, there is a lot of content here and you could be playing this for quite some time if you think this could be your jam.
  15. Toy Monsters Free Quest Demo / $4.99 Quest My quick take: Plants vs Zombies in AR with hand tracking that does enough unique stuff to be worth it. From the store page: “Toy Monsters VR is a mixed-reality tabletop tower defense inspired by classic Plants vs Zombies. Built from the ground up with hand tracking and passthrough in mind. As you progress through the 20 levels, you'll unlock new toys with unique special powers. You can enhance your toys with magical potions and use crystal power to unleash magic beams from your hands, transform your fingers into flamethrowers, and more.” This game has come a long way since its initial release. It’s a solid hand tracking Plants vs. Zombies game with its own twist on powers and uses passthrough quite nicely. My biggest complaint is that you really need to complete the game all in one go (about an hour or so) as it doesn’t keep track of your upgrades if you quit. Essentially, trying to pass a later level without prior upgrades or powerups is near impossible. Despite that one issue, give at least the demo a try and if you like it, the price is pretty fair for what you get.
  16. Exit Condition One Free Quest Demo / $4.99 Quest My quick take: A bit rough around the edges, but escape room fans will find fun with it. From the store page: “You awake from cryo in a mysterious museum. A robot refers to you as a curator and the security system is malfunctioning. Can you get things back to normal and escape? There are no jump scares. The game is designed ground-up for roomscale VR on the Quest, but supports all locomotion modes. Most objects can be interacted with, it fully uses physics, and the hands don't ‘ghost out.’” According to the description, this is still a work in progress. That being said, it was a neat escape game that I felt I got my money’s worth from. It certainly was a bit rough around the edges with its gameplay and had some obscure puzzles to work through, but I did finish it and had a good time with it. Try the demo for sure, and perhaps when it’s finally finished, some of those rough edges will be polished up, but as it stands now, it was pretty solid.
  17. Hyperdash Free Quest / Steam My quick take: A solid online shooter, but you'll have to put in the time to get good to find the fun. From the store page: “Hyper Dash is a free VR multiplayer team based shooter. Payload, Domination, Control Point, (Team) Deathmatch, Capture The Flag, Elimination, Ball and remix them with Mutators! Dash, sprint, and rail grind your way across the arenas to engage the enemy in fast-paced combat and secure the objective for your team. Offline mode/Bots, Dedicated servers, Private servers, Rebind-able controls, Left hand support, Voice chat.” For a free to play shooter, this one had great controls, nice graphics, a good gameplay loop, plenty of comfort options and a solid player base. All that being said, every player I faced off against were top tier, so I spent my time just dying round after round. This is a good game with a solid player base and there's fun here - if you’re willing to learn the ropes. It's bad for newbies like me just looking to have a good time and get a few kills.
  18. Please, Don’t Touch Anything $9.99 Quest / $4.99 Steam My quick take: A game for escape room devotees only. From the store page: "Please, Don’t Touch Anything is a cryptic, brain-racking button-pushing puzzle game. Covering for a colleague taking a bathroom break, you find yourself in front of a mysterious console with a green screen monitor showing a pixelated live image of an unknown city. Also present is an ominous red button with the simple instruction to not touch anything! Push the red button once or press it many times. Your choices and actions will lead to outrageous and frightening consequences and over 30 unique puzzle endings.” This is a weird one. A really obscure puzzle game that rewards experimentation, but is absolutely punishing with difficulty. If you’re really good at escape games and don’t get frustrated easily, you may enjoy the tedium. If not, you’ll end up like me, watching a tutorial to find out how to get different endings. But if you find yourself doing that, why not just watch a playthrough.
  19. Eleven Table Tennis $29.99 Quest / Steam My quick take: Still one of the best, but there’s so much untapped potential. From the store page: “The ultimate Table Tennis simulator. Play opponents in online multiplayer or practice against the advanced AI. With physics designed to be as real as ever achieved in a Table Tennis simulator, you will forget you are in VR." I finally got back to this game after the new UI was implemented. It looks much more user friendly, but much to my disappointment, there were no new arenas, music, or official doubles options. There is so much potential for expanding this game, and I feel like the devs are just content to have it remain in the state it currently is. Which, to be fair, is a perfect implementation of table tennis in VR. It’s still one of the best VR games out there and absolutely a must own. I just really wish they would add an officially supported doubles mode and expand out the game a bit more because the unofficial doubles mode is a real pain to get set up and only barely worth the struggle. If you'd like to see how to set that doubles up currently, here is a video I was a part of.
  20. Breachers $29.99 Quest / Steam My quick take: Come one, come all, this is 5 v 5 at its finest. From the store page: “In Breachers, you plan your assault or orchestrate your defense as a team through intense close-quarters combat. Whether you play as an enforcer or a revolter, master your nifty gadgetry, customize your powerful weaponry and beat your opponents in stunning environments. Intuitive to grasp. Endlessly playable.” Wow, wow, wow. This officially launched and is such a polished game. With multiple maps, intuitive movement and full lobbies, this game is simply spectacular. Despite the difficulty curve in being good at the game, it’s still a fun time even if you’re not the best, which is something special that few games manage to pull off. Where this game especially shines is with friends. If you can muster up a team of five to take on other random players, you’ll be playing this game for months. Give this a go, and if you're not any good, that's okay, because you'll still be better than the bots and a welcome addition to someone's team.
  21. Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Outcast (Sidequest mod) Free Demo on Quest / $9.99 (Full Game on Steam) My quick take: Come for the lightsaber play, stay if you can tolerate the puzzles. From the store page: “JK XR is a standalone VR port of the popular Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast game by Lucasarts and Raven Software. Brought to VR by Team Beef & Friends. There are lots of mods and access to the free demo level available through the JK XR Companion App, which is automatically also installed alongside JK XR on your headset.” I never played this game when it first came out on flatscreen in 2002, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. The first part of the game you’re playing essentially as a Han Solo type - a smart talkin’ gun slinger. The next part, you’re a cool Jedi chopping off limbs. Absolutely great execution as always by Team Beef, and you can’t beat the price. There is even a free demo to try out to see if you like it. All that being said, the game’s old puzzles, navigation and gameplay felt every bit of 20 years old. After dying multiple times because of missing an exact jump, getting lost and backtracking because I didn't see an obscure elevator and wasting time trying to navigate odd puzzles, I just found it to be too much to overcome to continue to the end. This is no slight on Team Beef and the great work they did with this port, the game just hasn’t aged the best.
  22. CoasterMania $9.99 Quest My quick take: Early days, but still some fun to be had. There could be something special here after a few updates. From the store page: “CoasterMania is a physics-based VR rollercoaster game where you create the ride of your life! Use wacky contraptions and elements to fly through the sky, then experience your creation by jumping in the front seat. Sandbox mode: Build your dream rollercoaster without any rules but the rules of physics. When you're done, share your coaster or experience the engineering marvels of others. Design your own rides and upload them online.” You know, this game is just silly fun. It's early days for sure, and the tracks don't twist and come together as easily together as I’d hoped, which makes for a difficult time creating exactly what you want. It is satisfying though to have a roller coaster leap from one track to another over a gap. At this point the game is more of a sandbox than a full game with objectives (which is coming). The coasters other people have created are fun, so if you’re not into creating, there is that option to play with other people's designs, plus you can ride them in first person. I look forward to more updates and think it's worth looking at for sure, but if you’re looking for something a bit more fleshed out currently you can try Stunt Track Builder.
  23. David Slade Mysteries: Case Files $9.99 Quest / Steam My quick take: You’re a forensic cop, here are your tools. Good luck dummy. From the store page: “Take to the dark and violent streets of downtown Riverside, where you investigate gruesome and violent homicides using a range of Forensic tools and your wits! Inspired by the classic Police Quest adventure series, reborn & reimagined for VR. Includes two epic episodes!” Slade is a murder mystery game that is ruthless in it’s difficulty. Honestly, there are several play throughs of this game on YouTube and none have beaten the first case because it was too hard, they all gave up. This game offers no hints, is super abstract and insanely difficult. Why did I keep playing? Well, the game’s tools were implemented quite well, the story was compelling, and I just felt I had to see this through to the end for my own sanity. Despite being as hard as nails, I somehow managed to finish the first case, then moved on to the second. No real spoilers, but the second case does a complete 180 and essentially becomes a horror game where you’re only weapon is your wits. A real departure from the first case. Again, I found myself frustrated, confused and turned around, but again, I had to power through it because something kept pulling me in. If you’re a masochist for puzzle games, I’d recommend this game.
  24. Home Detective Free w/IAP - Quest My quick take: Fun use of AR, but pretty basic. From the store page: “Use your own living room to solve the crime! Using passthrough, the crime scene is overlaid onto your play area, leaving you free to explore and find clues. Use the patent-pending Residual Heat Scanner to detect the criminals' recent movements, and then dust for fingerprints or try to find evidence left behind. With your wits, and your trusty sidekick Steve Dobbins' snarky comments, you're sure to get to the bottom of these confusing crimes.” I appreciate the interesting use of passthrough and AR in this game. The first case is free to try, so if you’re into AR and passthrough, it’s worth a try. It's $3.99 for another case if you’re into it, but right now, it’s a pretty basic, but solid idea. My biggest complaint is that all my tools were on a shelf that was inaccessible because they were in my wall. I guess AR is still not quite there yet.
  25. Vertigo Remastered $24.99 Steam My quick take: A fun and wacky ride from start to finish. From the store page: “It's a classic premise - a massive subterranean scientific facility full of mysteries, with aliens bursting in from alternate universes to wreak havoc. The twist? You're one of those aliens. But you're not here to wreak havoc (collateral damage disregarded), you're just trying to get home. A difficult endeavor, as it turns out this facility is more than prepared to deal with extraterrestrial threats.” Because I heard such great things about Vertigo 2, I thought I’d try out this game before I played the sequel. I was really blown away by how fun the game was and pleasantly surprised that it holds up so well. Considering its a 2016 remake, and VR was still figuring out a lot of things like movement, this still felt fresh. With lots of unique ideas, upgrades and areas to play in, I heartily recommend this one and am looking forward to playing the sequel.
  26. Playin’ Pickleball $19.99 Quest My quick take: Solid physics, but really only for pickleball fans, or a group of four friends. From the store page: “Playin’ Pickleball is an authentic reproduction of Pickleball in Virtual Reality! Physics, sounds and mechanics have been carefully mapped from actual Pickleball game play. Even the scoring and rules are based on the USA Pickleball Association’s Official Rulebook.” Pickleball is sweeping the nation and if I recall correctly, even ForeVR is getting in on the game with an upcoming title. I’m much more of a tennis than pickleball guy, but I have to say, this game has pretty solid physics. Like most games, this is exponentially better with one or better yet, three other people you know. The AI players can be pretty uninteresting hitting it back and forth without much variance. Also the environments are a bit basic. I have to applaud the movement, physics and customizable items though as they all felt very well implemented. If you want something a bit less daunting than tennis, this might be what you're looking for.
  27. Pong $6.99 Quest My quick take: A neat take on Pong, but you’ll have more fun with Cybrix. From the store page: “Classic paddle game reimagined for VR. Destroy all the bricks. Use your paddles to swing at the balls and the balls have built-in assistance to return back toward you. Take advantage of the pistol and magneto power-ups to cause major damage. Or just swing hard at the balls to create large blast radius. Oh and watch out for those mines going for your head. Lean left/right or crouch to avoid.” I appreciated the ideas the developers had in this modern take on Pong, but it was ultimately quite short and not nearly as fun as Cybrix. That being said for the price, I got my money’s worth and would love to see it get a bit more polish and levels in an update.
  28. Extreme Escape $4.99 Quest / Steam (Early Access) My quick take: One of those special games where you really feel like you're in the environment. From the store page: “Have you ever wondered how it would feel to travel in a hot air balloon and fly above clouds? Have you ever wanted to face your fear of heights and enclosed spaces? Perhaps you wanted to become a pilot and test your critical thinking skills. Looking for a breathtaking experience? Try Extreme Escape.” The game says “early access,” but honestly I believe this has been abandoned. For the price, you get an extremely short, but fun and unique escape room experience. You’re not going to find this game too hard, but I was brought into its world and completely immersed - I had a true sense of dread and panic. The even shorter “demo” inside the game puts you on a sinking submarine and was extremely memorable. Seldom have I felt so immersed in a game. I’d recommend it for this price, just because of how it made me feel, but it’s a real shame about the very short length and that it’s abandoned.
  29. The Last Worker $19.99 Quest / Steam My quick take: Gaming with a heavy message, but mediocre gameplay. From the store page: “The Last Worker is an immersive narrative adventure centered around a lone worker’s last stand in an increasingly automated world, The Last Worker is a unique blend of work simulation and stealth strategic gameplay. The game is set in a lonely, oppressive but strangely beautiful environment, with characters designed by comics legend Mick McMahon. Kurt works for the world’s largest retailer and is forced to choose between capitalism or activism. Having dedicated his life to work, Kurt’s loyalty is put to the test when a group of activists ask him to dismantle Jüngle from the inside.” I really wanted to like this game. It had an interesting concept, but navigating, fail states and some very annoying bugs frustrated me to the point where I just said it wasn’t worth my time. That and the story wasn’t speaking to me. It’s well rated, so I’m probably on the opposite side of this one from most people. It's unique in many ways, so check out the teaser and see if it might be for you.
  30. Shadow Point $19.99 Quest My quick take: Fisherman’s Tale vibes with an excellent story and puzzles that makes you feel smart. From the store page: “Built for VR, Shadow Point is a story-driven puzzle game set between a mountaintop observatory and an ever-changing fantasy world. Explore a vibrant kingdom, cast shadows and solve mind-bending puzzles as you uncover the mystery of missing schoolgirl, Lorna McCabe who vanished from Shadow Point Observatory twelve years ago. As your adventure unfolds, you will manipulate gravity, play with your own reflection, walk on walls, peer through a magical lens to reveal an alternate reality and much more.” I had this game on my wishlist forever and finally pulled the trigger, and boy am I glad I did. I really enjoyed the story, gameplay and ended up marathoning it in one session (which I don't recommend doing). It is a few hours long, and there are extra puzzles to go back to if you’d like. It had some serious Fisherman’s Tale vibes, so if you like those type of puzzle games, this is for you. The puzzles make you stop and think, and more importantly, progress nicely. I was never stuck, but certainly had to really contemplate how to solve some of them. It is slightly finicky with having to line up the shadows exactly to progress, but that is a minor complaint. Give this one a go for sure.
I hope you find a few games on this list that you might not have heard of, or that you might find worth revisiting. Let me know here or on the Ruff Talk Discord channel if you have a game you enjoy that I should try, I'm always open to recommendations. Until then, I hope your next VR experience is a memorable one.
Also, the week this is posted, I'm hosting a contest where one winner gets a $29.99 or less, Quest game of their choice. You can enter on the discord channel above, but will need to have five posts on the discord channel within a week to enter, so if that interests you, feel free to join. The Ruff Talk guys usually have giveaways every week and it's some solid VR chat if you're looking for like-minded individuals in a non-toxic space.
TLDR: Top five games to check out - Ark and Ade, Pin City, Breachers, Shadow Point, Vertigo Remastered

2023.06.05 16:26 CodeInSpace What is the best neighborhood to buy a home in for a Brooklyn transplant?

My job (company based in Portland) has asked me to relocate to Portland. I think I'm excited but also very lost. My entire knowledge of Portland is limited to watching Portlandia back in the day. I have lived in NYC for 15 years, my entire adult life.
I will be in Portland for a week in July and I need to find the area that I will move to in that short window. Can people point me to the neighborhoods I should spend the most time in during that week.
In general how walkable/bikable Is Portland? To other ex NYers, what will I love and what will I hate about it?

Twitter Rule submitted by AussieHawker to 196 [link] [comments]

2023.06.05 16:26 Northa24 r/Cookierun will go dark on June 12-14 in protest of Reddit's API changes that will kill 3rd party apps.

If you wish to know the full context, please read this post:

What's going on?

As you all probably know, the recent announcement made by Reddit regarding their APIs have raised significant concerns within the Reddit community. Starting on July 1st, Reddit has unilaterally decided to impose exorbitant charges on third-party app developers such as Reddit is Fun, Apollo, Baconreader, Narwhal, and many others for utilizing their API. This decision has far-reaching consequences that not only hinder app developers but also affect the experience of moderators and users alike. These changes will make a great many quality-of-life features not seen in the official mobile app permanently inaccessible to users.
In response to this situation, the moderators of Cookierun will join the other subreddit communities going dark in a coordinated effort; a temporary blackout starting on June 12th, lasting for 48 hours.

What is going to happen?

The subreddit will be set to private, rendering it inaccessible to all users. This collective action is intended to express our discontent and urge Reddit to reconsider their recent API changes.
We understand that this blackout may cause temporary inconvenience to the subreddit, and for that, we apologise. However, we firmly believe that this short-term disruption will bring long-term benefits for every user who use bots and tools in Reddit to help keep the community safe.
If you wish to show your own support, feel free to [email](mailto:[email protected]) Reddit to communicate your opposition to the proposed modifications, participating in the blackout yourself, or sharing your thoughts on other social media.
We currently plan to come back after the 48 hours have passed, but we are also open to extending the protest longer than just 2 days if things aren’t looking like they’ll change. For anyone who still wishes to speak with fellow Cookie Runners and the mods of this subreddit, feel free to join our Discord server or any of Cookie Run's official Discord servers and communities.
Thank you, - The moderator team of Cookierun

2023.06.05 16:25 mdz99 Cant access dreams or Luna?

My daughter finally got ACNH as shes now old enough to start managing inventory and build things.
We are both new to AC in general and like playing together but one thing I cant figure out is why she cant access dreams/Luna? We are making great progress in game but going to bed gives us no options to dream. (built Museum, Nook store, upgraded tent to house, and then house again, Built a plot for a new guest, they moved in. 2 more plots, gathering required items now).
Am I misunderstanding when you can access dreams?
We have Online family membership, I've turned off every parental-type control I can see in case that was blocking her ability.

2023.06.05 16:25 Ciuwandy [Question] Fake for a build?

Hello this is a genuine question and please don't get mad, I need your oppinions and views and discuss. Ok so I have been thinking and wondering if it is okay to buy a fake Rolex which costs 60 bucks in my local store and mod it into a Seiko NH34 GMT mod. Why did I choose the fake Rolex than other third-party cases? It's because third-party cases have these funky lugs where they look polished and eats all the edges and the chapter ring, it's deep not like Rolex where it's pretty much a wall.
So this fake is perfect for the build because it doesn't have those weird quirks on it. I'll swap the movement for a Seiko NH34 or if not keep it but change the dial to a custom made Seiko GMT dial.
And yes I am aware that wearing a fake Rolex to like an airport as an example can get you into trouble but I am going after the Case and the bracelet for my Seiko build.
Thanks in advance

2023.06.05 16:24 Any_Kangaroo_8949 Switching stores and tightening up.

To make a long story short the first store I worked at was incredibly strict about everything and being busy at all times. The second store I transferred to is incredibly lax and I lost a lot of my work ethic. Now the third store I’m transferring to this fall is somewhere in the middle. What can I do tighten up, get out bad habits and reclaim my work ethic?

2023.06.05 16:24 ChampionshipRight586 I took my shoes off in 25 degrees farenheit weather for a young girl who was 7 months pregnant with no shoes.

Long story, I walked into the gas station to pick up a few items. I walked up to the counter and noticed a girl, maybe 19 to 21. I asked her age but I don't remember specifically but she was an adult. She was asking to use the phone & at that time I noticed she had a thin jacket, no socks or shoes. I wanted to cry for her. I had on socks and slides although it was freezing (yea I'm goofy, don't judge me). I took my shoes off and gave them to her before she could explain her circumstances.
Long story short the father got mad at her and put her out on the road, she walked to that store with no shoes to use a phone! Both the clerk & I tried desperately to let us call 911 and get her help & offered other immediate resources. She refused & I didn't want to upset her in her already fragile state. Ugh there was so much I wanted to say her. I wanted to save her myself. Before leaving I made sure she was in good care with the clerk, she called her mother & I left after hearing the phone call.
I felt so guilty that I didn't have more money to uber her into safety. I know it was a effort to do a good deed but I often wonder what happened to her and the baby. The baby would be about 5 years old now. I hope they are safe and happy.
Im still in poverty to this day, but I will never turn a person in a Emergency away. I also won't turn away a hungry person. I never have in my life.
