Is there a way to actually track these personal stats?

We recently started playing "From Other Suns", a three player co-op VR game. It requires a lot of teamwork and learning how things work, so we are having fun. Once you "die" (lose all your crew members), you start all over again. However, certain achievements unlock permanent benefits even with a new game. Here's the list I've found:

50 pirate away missions - legendary scattershot mk1 (325dmg)
50 robot away missions - legendary shock burst mk1 (253dmg)
125 crimson marauder pirates - legendart plasma explosive mk1 (325dmg 32ammo)
150 unaffiliated pirates - legendary auto pistol mk1 (144dmg 260ammo)
450 (150+300) unaffiliated pirates - legendary auto pistol mk2 (260dmg 300ammo)
300 robots - legendary shock disc mk1 (217dmg)
get back to earth - corvette class ship (called "asa radiance" )
get 20 crew from missions - legendary laser beam (163dmg 195ammo)
50 pirate captains - pirate corvette mk3 (ship)
500 Jumps - Corvette ship
Destoy 100 Pirate Ships - Pirate Skimmer (ship)

Mixing it up a bit and trying this workout. It's full body, three times a week. Ideally I'll burn more calories and give my muscles a bit more time to rest. On off days I'll still do my HIIT on the bike as well as Ab Ripper. Dumbbells are up to 37.5 now. I think I can add more weight to it for most exercises, but the curls are the real test. I may up the weight but then go lighter for the isolation exercises like curls. It's just kind of a hassle to be adding and removing weight each time.

This comes after doing research on full body versus split workouts. I've now survived the holidays and am at 177.8 lbs. Not bad considering the Thanksgiving and Christmas break and that I've been focusing more on muscle building.

I was curious about how much I'm spending on supplements. After totaling it up, the price is definitely worth it for the benefits I'm getting. I just ordered L-Citrulline and Creatine, so we'll see if they make the cut. I'm probably going to make this into a larger post about everything you need to workout from home and what it would cost you to get started and maintain.


*Whey Protein - $21/mo
L-Citrulline Malate - $10/mo
Creatine - $3/mo
Casein Protein - $28/mo

TOTAL: $34-55/mo


*Fish oil - $10/mo
*Vitamin D - $1.25/mo
Zinc - $2/mo
Magnesium - $4/mo

TOTAL: $17.25/mo


Probiotic - $10/mo
Psyllium Husk - $3/mo

TOTAL: $13/mo



Upright Bike - $130
100 lb Dumbbells - $100


Waking Up/Hour Before Workout: Protiotic, L-Citrulline Malate (6g)
Pre-Workout: (1/2) Whey and Creatine
Post-Workout: (1/2) Whey and Creatine
Lunch: Fish Oil, Vitamin D
2 Hours After Meal: Zinc
1 Hour Before Sleep: Magnesium, Casein
Before Bed: Psyllium Husk (1.5-3g)

SWTOR is so dead.
Last time I had tried it they had redesigned the whole skill tree and all my abilities were gone and I wasn't even sure how to rebuild my character. Kinda turned me off. I've been playing Secret World Legends, now!

Yeah, got back up to 180 or so. I can gain weight impressively quickly :/

Back to shredding again, though with Thanksgiving and the holidays, it'll probably be slow going. I did buy a new set of dumbbells that has adjustable weight (105 lbs total, so 52.5 for each). I'm hoping to steadily increase the weight so I can actually build some decent mass. I was using 20 lbs before. I've since added to 32.5 lbs and am doing 3 sets of 8 reps of each exercise.

I've also expanding my supplements a bit. Just bought some probiotics - going to take that in the morning. Vitamin D and fish oil with lunch, Zinc between lunch and dinner, Magnesium about an hour or so before bed, and then Psyillium Husk pills before bed. Also taking whey protein after workout and as a snack around the same time I take the Magnesium.

The supplements can be a little tricky since the suggested use of them are different and some can get in the way of absorbing others. Probiotic and psyllium is because my digestive system could use the help. The rest support muscle building and general health.

I'm also still making batches of meat slop!

Congratz on the weight loss Tbone. That's some inspiring stuff. Thanks for sharing. How have you been doing on that front lately?

I got down to about 165 before I booked this two month gig in Michigan. Since I've been here I've been eating out more and working out less, so I've probably gained some of it back. I'll have to shred it back down once I get back home!

OrbusVR is the only RPG I know of in development. Echo Arena is a great multiplayer game that was just released. Rec Room also has some fun multiplayer elements to it. There are a few more good multiplayer games that are still in development.
