More like Beast Saber
Beat Saber is one of those games that's conceptually simple yet perfectly executed, and it's a combination that's resulted in widespread popularity among virtual reality players. The number of people with a VR headset is relatively small in the grand scheme of things, so for a VR-only title to secure over one million sales is...
Fresh tunes incoming
One of PlayStation VR's best games, and one that sparked a short-lived but highly entertaining rivalry at Push Square Towers, Beat Saber is cracking good fun no matter how you slice it. However, one of the main criticisms you can throw at the PSVR version of the rhythm action game is a lack of decent tunes. The songs included by...
We can all agree that Beat Saber is excellent fun. It even caused this author and editor Sammy Barker to lock horns in a high score battle, such is the addictive nature of this PSVR rhythm slasher. The only real trouble is the limited number of songs available to play; once you've mastered them all, what more is there to do? Well, you...
Deep cuts incoming
We can probably all agree that Beat Saber is the best thing since sliced bread, but its paltry 18 song soundtrack is arguably the worst thing about it. It’s a testament to the strength of the moment-to-moment gameplay that it makes such terrible songs entertaining to play, but there’s always been the promise of DLC on the way...
War never changes
There’s a battle brewing at Push Square Towers, and I’m not going to lose it. In lieu of having anything better to do on New Year’s Eve, I decided to buy Beat Saber – the extortionately priced rhythm sensation that sees you wielding lightsabers and chopping blocks to the sound of terrible electronic music. While the songs...

Guys, video games are weird now.

The track, which features vocals from American singers Madison Beer and Jaira Burns alongside Korean...
What's old is new again
Something exciting is happening on PlayStation VR right now. A couple of years into its life, we’re starting to see developers really get to grips with the hardware. It’s always the way – early titles are often the most experimental, testing the waters to see what can be achieved. With virtual reality, it’s a whole...
Slicing and dicing
The hotly anticipated virtual reality rhythm game, Beat Saber, arrives on PlayStation VR today, and along with it of course comes a fresh batch of PS4 trophies. This acclaimed title, which has you swinging two energy swords (read: PS Move controllers) to slice blocks as they approach, even has a Platinum to earn. However, this one...
A cut above
Hotly anticipated PlayStation VR rhythm game Beat Saber will cut to the chase from 20th November, the aptly named Beat Games has announced. For those of you who don’t know, the title sees you wielding two PlayStation Move controllers as lightsabers, chopping through coloured blocks to the sound of thumping tunes – or choons, if...
A cut above
It’s the one that PlayStation VR fans have been holding out hope for: Beat Saber is coming to PlayStation 4. The viral sensation sees you wielding a lightsaber in each hand, and smashing through blocks to the sound of electropop. It’s a wonderfully imaginative mechanic that looks both supremely difficult and outrageously satisfying...
