I figured since a few of us play osu! a lot that I could make a thread for whenever we want to play together. The idea here is similar to the iSketch thread that gets made too often in Shenanigans.
For those that don't know, osu! is a PC rhythm game that's similar to Elite Beat Agents. I can't really explain it in words, so here's a video:
Some people use a tablet to play faster songs like that one, but personally I'm much more comfortable with just a mouse. Input methods are:
- Mouse only (LMB, RMB)
- Mouse + keyboard
- Tablet only
- Tablet + keyboard
There are a ton of songs to download from every genre, and you can even create your own songs. One thing to note is that a LOT of them are Japanese or related to an anime, so if you're really averse to that it might suffice to warn you.
You can also customize the game by downloading skins or scrapping together your own, like I've done:
If none of that really interests you, osu! is useful as sort of a mouse accuracy training game--you'll see some Counter-Strike/Quake/League of Legends/etc. players playing osu! in their spare time to work on their accuracy. The game really does get difficult once you get to faster/more complicated beatmaps.
My ID in game is BFCE if you want to add me and play multiplayer whenever. I know @Jon, @Manu, and @Thunderbro play a lot, so feel free to add them too.
PLS PLAY WITH ME ._.
