Half-Life Alyx

Post by Wolf » Sun Nov 24, 2019 7:38 pm

Who else saw this?
Personally I can't wait for it, but I would prefer it wasn't a VR only game - interested to see where they go with it though - It's about time!

It's one of the most expensive titles for VR so far I believe, coming in at £42, but fingers crossed it holds up to the hype. For those who have the money to fork out for the Valve Index, they can look forward to a free copy of the game.

VR is a gimmick anyway. You would never use it for a good gaming session on BF or pubg or world of warships or Insurgency sandstorm. You have a go, say "oooh, that's good innit?" then go and do something else. And when it's time to game with friends you leave it where it is and turn on the pc like you always do.

Says the man that plays one game and nothing else. :P
VR is great. And hilarious with friends too.

VR is awesome; you probably can't do marathon sessions on it, especially if it's a game where you need to be standing but you can't beat the atmosphere of being inside a game.
That is quite pricey for a VR game, but it looks very good! Especialy with the mixture of interaction and gunplay.

We need the third chapter, not a cobbled together VR with a secondary character with new textures to make it look nice, no thanks.
