Half-Life: Alyx Announced!!

Recommended Posts

 

Looks damn cool, and is VR only.  Right now it looks like they are just targeting PC.  Thankfully I already have a Vive...  Can't wait!

If the game is digital only and requiert to register before playing, I would pass.

I bet it will be digital only through Steam, so you would need a Steam account to play if that's the case.

Half Life brought to VR huh?  I guess this is what I expected it to look like if someone said that to me.

 

I need a new computer . . .

VR sets can be found cheap. I acquired about 3 month ago an Oculus Rift with the special VR joysticks and 3 dectector (the "full set" for fully immersive VR gaming) for 200€ (used, of course). And damn if the thing looked barely used! Which I can understand, most current VR games are... meeh.

Now if your computer isn't up to the task... It's another problem, though I play VR on my gig which I assembled 6 years ago for 750€ (with a more recent video card I added last year for 150€).

 

I'm certainly looking forward for that game.

I have really enjoyed the games I have for my PlayStation VR...but honestly I almost never use it. It's always a bit of a pain to get setup, you have to sit just right, those motion controllers are never charged and then you are in a bubble where you can't hear anything around you as you play the games. It's cool tech and I've had a lot of fun with VR...but it needs another generation to get more convenient.

Yeah, I have all those problems with it too.  I really want to play all the PSVR games that I own, but it's an effort to get everything turned on and powered up.

I'm not going to be buying a VR set for this.

The first two Half-Life games gave me motion sickness, but I persevered.  I can only imagine what this game will do.

I hope it does well cause I want Half-Life 3... but they better not make that one VR required (if it ever happens).

I've been wanting to get into VR and upgrade my computer, and this looks like the perfect excuse. I'm glad it's an actual proper game length wise, otherwise I probably wouldn't have been too interested.  I'll probably upgrade my graphics card first. I have a GTX 670, which worked great for all the games I had except for Doom, but might go for a GTX 1660 TI  or used 1070 and add two 8 GB sticks of RAM.

Half-Life 2 was the last great game for me, and I’d love to play another instalment in the franchise. I don’t have the time to invest in/play with a gaming PC, and will have to hope that a PSVR port will be forthcoming.
