VRChat Can Actually Be Beautiful Sometimes by Monkey-Scientist VRChat Can Actually Be Beautiful Sometimes by Monkey-Scientist
So yeah, by now we all know of the "Ugandan Knuckles Tribe" meme, which has pretty much taken over VRChat. I actually got back into this game today (hadn't played it for a week or two) and ran into at least 3-4 people with Knuckles avatar. Suffice it to say, VRChat has gotten pretty crazy as of late. Still, a larger player-base means more worlds to explore! This is Seisoken City, which could also be called "Anime City". There are giant screens playing clips and trailers of anime or Japanese-related products, there's a DJ spinning some Vocaloid tunes in the middle, and there's a garbage can that says "Your Waifu" atop it. I haven't seen this much condensed anime in one place since the last comic convention I was at. :D

So yeah, I discovered this world seemingly by accident. I was walking through VRChat one day, ready to give up on the game when I stumbled across this world. I went inside and was blindsided by how awesome it looked! It was this cyberpunk city with fireworks, giant screens, and anime as far as the eye could see! Suffice it to say, Seikosen City saved VRChat for me. I mean, it's still a game where the only thing you can do is walk around, talk to people, and occasionally pick stuff up, but at least some of the worlds are genuinely inventive and unique.

I know by posting this pic, Seikosen will probably be swarmed by Knuckles', but who cares? Not even memes can ruin this weird city for me. I've got nothing against the meme though, you guys are free to meme however you wish. At least the meme makes VRChat somewhat interesting, it was pretty bland before Knuckles came along. So yeah, sometimes memes are a necessary evil. XD

I did not make any of this BTW.

Doesn't VR Chat feel like the OASIS from Ready Player One and Oz from Summer Wars?

Eh, kind of. If OASIS/Oz was filled with annoying Knuckles. :D

Yeah, that meme not only sounds and feels racist, it's getting annoying. Which is why I wont play VR Chat anytime soon. I mean if there's like countless worlds in the game I could visit like say Fiore.

Oh, there's countless worlds in the game, that's definitely true. Most of them are fairly well-designed (and made by the community) so they look great. It's just the community can be a bit of a hassle at times.

Also, I heard that the game can be played without VR Goggles, but I find that rubbish because the title is VR Chat. It this true?

Yeah, you can play it without VR. I think the devs knew that their virtual chatroom wouldn't have as much reach if it was just VR (since VR is still pretty expensive) so they decided to make it so anyone can play it.

"VRChat Can Actually Be Beautiful Sometimes" My reply to that is, "Don't make me laugh." The joke flew over your head, huh?

No, I get the joke completely. It just doesn't make sense, since the game can actually be beautiful at times. Though I guess beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.

Well, I made the joke because at the time, the game was full of tiny little knuckles going around clicking.

I've been spending some time here myself, it's so pretty, and not many people visit at the moment, so it's a fine place to afk sometimes when I don't want to completely close out of the game.

Yeah, same here. I love that it isn't crowded in the slightest, and it's fun to just journey around. :)

Agreed, the music is pretty fun and it's a relaxing time. I probably spend most time in the game just in this city alone.

Fair enough. I think it ownly runs on high-end computers anyways. A good thing about it is that you don't need VR to play it, plus it's free. :)

Yeah, the way is down the street, to your left. You can't miss it! Just look for the big glowing Knuckles sign. :D

What even IS that stupid Ugandan Knuckles meme? I mean, apart from slightly racist?

Well, it's a meme spun off from a meme spun off from a short animation that was filmed on a camera by Gregzilla. I kind of feel bad for the guy, having his name attached to so many annoying memes. :D

Hmm. I can already tell this meme is going to long outlive its welcome. Though I also imagine that Arron Webber will cream himself once he comes across all this. He's probably already referenced it on twitter.

This most likely be the case. When I play the game, I try to avoid the Knuckles and just go to rooms with less people in them. :D

I don't have any VR stuff, nor any space to use them, so I don't really play it. I guess SOME of the impressions I've heard online are pretty good, but...eh, it's mostly meme city, by the looks of it.
