Lmfao, is everyone getting baited by Valve or what? Kek. People freaking out going "OMG OMG OMG" "FINALLY AFTER BLABLA YEARS", jeez relax, its a VR game bruh. It even says "VR" in Valves announcement. Sure, they might drop it as a normal game later on, but i doubt it.

This actually looks like a normal game, though, it even has an insane price on Steam, along with a level editor and Steam Workshop. store.steampowered.com/app/546560/HalfLi.. Seems like a proper entry in the Half Life series (also have you seen the trailer it looks amazing: twitter.com/valvesoftware/status/1197578..)

2019-11-21 19:35
Honestly I was about to dismiss your point as stupid, but this could have easily been EP3 or HL3 from Alyx's perspective. Still this looks fucking awesome.

Oh yeah for sure, im a bit disappointed but only in proportion to my hype for Half Life 3. As a game in itself i think it looks amazing. Sadly i can't afford the 100's of dollars required to play this so imma just have to find a friend who has VR or watch play throughs.
2019-11-21 19:39
Yeah neither do I. Maybe there'll be a version without the VR requirement later? Perhaps they're trying to suck people in to buy a Valve Index and then Alyx?

I am Guessing that valve will release pc version of this new hl game in steam in few months. Bcause pc is the number one thing that people use it to play games.
2019-11-21 19:41
There is some speculation and hints at events in and after episode 2 in the trailer. Whether or not it will jump forward in time in the end and give us a hint of the next game, we will have to wait and see about. But the vort talking about Elis fate and the "Close your eyes honey" really does hint at us getting some bit of closure on the episode 3 events. Either that or he just likes to say that.

"I’ve played through HL: Alyx (it took me over 15 hours) and seen it in multiple stages of development. This is a full-blown Half-Life experience, with a rich, vibrant world, immersive combat, great storytelling, and innovative game design." Geoff Keighley
2019-11-21 19:38
How did Geoff Keighley even come about? I feel like he just popped into the Gaming Scene one day, placed by God.
2019-11-21 19:43
He has been around since half life 1, where he wrote the "Final hours of half life", then later on the same for half life 2, portal 2, tf2 etc.. We will be coming back and doing it for half life alyx as well. He essentially took a 5 year break and has just come back recently to reporting like this, as he was focused on making the esport awards thingy.

are you serious? valve developing a vr game is big, half-life has always been about going a generation ahead and creating new possibilities and i have no doubt valve are going to do that here. The game looks great and people should be hyped about it not only because valve are going to make the perfect VR game with next-gen features, but people are also allowed to be hyped for stuff. Even if you won't play it you'll still be able to watch it and be involved in it and it might even push the market of VR even further and convince casual gamers to pick up a VR headset to play the game.

Making one of Valves, id say biggest(?) game VR is f*cking stupid dude. "BuT iTs ThE fUtUrE", well OK? But not all of us wants to spend 300eu or whatever on a headset + 45eu on the game. Just make it VR & "normal", simple.

there would be no point in making a normal game when the point of half-life as a game series has always been about creating 'the future'. It doesn't matter if it has a massive audience because that's not valves fucking demographic.

obviously they want to maximise profit since its a small demographic? it doesn't mean it's going to be a bad game because it totally makes sense for what the game series half-life has been used for and that is creating next-generation features.

at the rate tech is going at for sure but it doesn't mean this game can't inspire VR games to come just like Half-Life and Half-Life 2 have.

True, and especially taking into effect valve time, the game could start a VR revolution

Of course it's a big deal.. huge news, and yes OP is an edgy idiot, but he has somewhat a point. The most anticipated game in the history of gaming, goes to a platform that is unfit for shooters. Fans of Half-Life, especially the ones that transcends from our community of CS gamers, are FPS enthusiasts. Keyboard and mouse. How is the reaction not expected?

someone explained it a lot better than I, so I'll paraphrase: HL 1 was about pushing the boundaries of what a PC FPS could be. HL 2 was about pushing the boundaries of a physics engine, and HL 3/Alyx is going to be about pushing the boundaries of what a VR game can be, so i'll be watching to see if it's actually going to do that

but half life as a series has always been about pushing boundaries and pioneering new groups for fps games. valve's idea seems to be to push the limits of what a vr fps can be, much like how the original half life pushed the limits of what an fps could be.
2019-11-22 08:55
Currently VR is garbage, no one can denie that. But in a couple years when it will be fully realized it’s a game changer

"But in a couple years when it will be fully realized it’s a game changer" Yeah probably. But i still think its f*cked up that they basically force us people that dont want a VR headset to buy a VR headset so we can play HL, lol. Imagine: "CSGO2 coming Summer 2021, VR only" lol.
2019-11-21 19:57
My train of thought is that by the time the game comes out everyone will already have a VR headset

The thing is they will most likely release a PC Version later on. Half Life has always been about pushing the boundaries and if the technology isn't there yet then eventually someones going to have to bring it up to scratch.. why not let Valve increase interest in VR and bring a bigger market -> more R&D. If you're for a better VR experience and cheaper VR then you should support this game and the market in general. Simple

2019-11-21 20:13

VR is not quite at a point where making such a bold release can be considered "better" than PC gaming or even console gaming. Using your body(+handset) in VR is still more awkward than using a controller, even for FPS games. On top of all that is the dealbreaker... the amount of games that are directly supported for Valve Index controllers is shockingly low. Even for a newly released hardware, the number simply isn't good enough. I've had the Valve Index for almost half a year now. Sure, it works great and it seems like a step into the future.. but neither the industry nor the market is there yet. It seems like Valve it trying to kickstart the market with a release of the most anticipated game in history.. and I somewhat doubt that it was the right move to make it an exclusive. ..because the point is, even if VR would eventually take over from PC gaming, it won't happen with a single game. Not even if it's the best game that's ever made. For 30 years several generations have, not only grown up with, but been completely shaped by PC gaming. Maybe they are investing in a new generation? Who knows.

They did it with the FPS genre, not PC gaming in general. Also, using mouse/keyboard for FPS weren't anything new when HL1 was released. This is not the same thing.
2019-11-21 21:40
Du har jo egentligt ret, men this is half life and valve, im quite sure they have improved upon it by now and made it easy to play and navigate the world. The point is also they have a lot of other VR titles coming after, at least if the leaks are somewhat true, and VR ready Source 2 SDK is now out for everyone to use and play around with, will result in a huge modding community but for VR.

I'm not doubting that the game or the engine will be good, in fact I would be surprised if it isn't. I'm not sure about "huge" community, but knowing their engine I'm sure there will be plenty of ways to play around with it.. it will just be incredibly hardware demanding to test the actual mods.
2019-11-21 21:43
VR was a failure in the 90's, it's a failure today. Pure, excellent gameplay comes from either holding a controller with your feet up to play GTA in front of a bigass TV or sitting your ass behind a desk and holding a mouse + keyboard to play some competitive FPS. VR is a nice little gimmick, much like the Nintendo Wii's swinging and swatting around was; it was funny for a couple of months then people got bored and got back to what is proven time and time again to be the ultimate be all and end all of all fucking operating mechanisms; Goddamn buttons and the ability to sit your ass the fuck down. This stupid VR shit will come and go every few generations and they never learn from it. It doesn't work, it will never work, it is a hypefest and it will never replace what we are firmly loving already.
2019-11-21 20:05
Its a vr game but it takes place between HL1 and HL2 , so we can finally see exactly what happened while Gordon was sleeping... I cant believe im hyped for this, its a semi prequel, it will probably have stupid retcons all over the place, graphics are trash, gameplay is shit and im not into the whole VR thing, plus, i cant afford and even if i could...it's not avialable in my country through steam (VALVe's official set)....how times have changed...

2019-11-21 21:34
I believe they will use this as a test plaform for some upcoming VR games. Also releasing a big name VR game like Half-Life will most certainly increase the sales of new VR equipments which are required for future games.
