    Thought I'd just open a thread for the game here, even though I don't have VR hardware, and this place is gathering dust...as TODAY is LAUNCH DAY. Smack in the middle of a global health crisis situation and some people are even under lockdown...

    So...Alyx...Valve's VR game and new addition to the Half-life universe. Masterpiece or just a poke in the eye?

    And yes...the actual thread for the game is HERE atm.

    Still no real activity. Well, I have played through it and it's probably my favorite Half Life game. What an experience, much more involving. It's slower than the others, is quite horror orientated and all bullets are important.
    Do purchase if you have a VR set capable of being connected to the PC.

    ^^I just fired it up again recently on the Quest 2 via 5g wireless and that Virtual desktop app, and it looked amazing on that akmost 2k panel of the Q2, and that was over 5g wireless streaming to the HMD, amazing, thethered vr is now a dying breed today.

    I decided to post in this thread rather than the 'official' which is filled with trolling fighting and hate.

    And say I'm on my second playthrough of this masterpiece, and it's up there if not better than the previous main titles.

    It's not flawless, true, some design issues are a niggle, but as a game and experience it's the flagship of VR.

    I first went through it via Oculus but it isn't a patch on the Index.

    And I love how they actually resolved/changed the cliffhanger from EP2.

    This, for me, was worth the 14-year wait.

    Still havent played it for some reason. More into Boneworks right now. VR is really amazing and i noticed i have no more problems getting dizzy with smooth turns or rapid movement changes. My body used to 'compensate' for gravity effects even when it was just VR movement, kinda funny. Now i dont feel any simulated gravity anymore, it's great.

    Just installed it today, never finished it. Had a Rift S, but upgraded to a meta quest 3 and my god, what a massive improvement in image quality. This is the future of VR gaming.
