This is a full length title, not on rails or any bulls*** like that.

Meh. I'm a big fan of the Half-Life series and 2 is one of my favorite games ever, but this honestly does nothing for me right now. Maybe that will change once I see more of it, but it's been so long and the fact this is VR, which I care little for, means I'm not going to get hyped about it.

Same here. Considering the fact that I recently upgraded my pc (New processor, memory, motherboard, power supply etc.) and it was a little more than a grand, which Valve index's price is around. Nope, not going to do it.

Like I understand the Valve fanboys saying they've always been inovative and want to push VR, but come on. This isn't HL3. Ya'll want to do a spin off have had it but I'll wait for 3.

I might just bite and get the Quest. Didn't know it was $399. Not too bad. Half Life Alyx trailer brings back a lot of great memories with Half Life 1 and 2, especially the abundance of single player mods. I am hearing that mod tools are going to be released too. Which is huge!

Pumped for this. Literally every fps port I've played was better in VR, and having Valve completely customize this is incredible.

Have you tried the direct link that just came out? I'm still waiting on the cables to come in the mail. Never could figure out how to side load. Guess I don't have to now. I'm also really looking forward to boneworks vr...

Replayed Half Life 2 and just finished Episode 1. On Episode 2 now. A masterpiece. I am using Mmod. Nothing else.

On another note, I must be getting old, I don't recall the AI being this smart and difficult.

Mmod in action

I was always planning on getting the Index controllers for my HTC Vive, but now that Half Life Alyx is included with them, it would be like getting a 60 dollar discount!
