Half Life: Alyx

Recommended Posts

It's not Half Life 3 but it's something at least. Pity it's VR but I would expect this to be exceptional compared to the usual quality of games in this format.

2019-2020 seems to be the return of the greats even if it's just a bunch of remastered stuff. Even in the music industry it's happening. Half life was actually the last thing I thought I would of seen any sort of update to though. We need team fortress now!

I completely forgot they were meant to be dropping something, I’ve got high hopes for this. Will definitely be picking it up and playing some games at work.

After a long wait, the highly-anticipated sequel is about to launch - and could be VR's killer app.

If I have a clear credit card, debt-wise arounr November, which should be about right, I think I'll pick up the Steam VR.

Anyone know a cheap VR setup with motion controls that would be compatible for this? I've heard there's mixed reality sets and other 3rd party kits that are much cheaper than the Index. I am very keen to play this but I don't want to pay outlandish money for something that may end up shoved in a cupboard.

Get the Index. The resolution of the headset is way better and the controller are easily the best out.

 

Games are getting better and you’ll want that resolution, plus the finger tracking is being used in newer games.

Sounds good. There's just a teeny tiny stumbling block that could prove to be a slight issue with your suggestion; where am I gonna get £1000 from?😂

From trees. Does money still grow on trees?

I saw another review today from angryjoe and apparently the motion sickness is an issue with the Valve Index playing this for longer than half an hour. I was under the impression one of the selling points was that the higher resolution and design meant motion sickness was less of an issue. So I'm confused.

I think motion sickness affects people differently and that's one of the risks with VR. Seems Valve have done their best to try and mitigate this as there are 4 different controller types from full room movement to simply sitting down and teleporting. Many others have said they've experienced no sickness and that is is a very smooth in-game experience although some have mentioned something about 'smooth turning' which affects some.

 

It'll be interesting to see more feedback once people have really got into it. I'd hate to spend £400 on a VR kit and £45 on the game only to get motion sickness after 20 minutes!

Yeah you're right James, it does affect people differently. I don't get motion sickness but sometimes it gives me a banging headache after, this could be that the VR kit i'm using isn't calibrated to my eyes. This should also help people with motion sickness as well.

 

I've still only heard good things about this game.
