    I'm a play through Black Mesa when the Final Chapters are finally out of Beta and they can hopefully come out of Early Access (I never played the first Half Life more than a few hours even back in the day), hopefully before Alyx is out: https://steamcommunity.com/app/362890/discussions/0/1643170269569170506/

    Then I'm gonna play through Alyx on the Index.

    And I still have some really faint hopes that these guys will get some fire under their asses to hurry up a bit with their Half Life 2 VR Mod, given the release of this: https://www.reddit.com/r/hlvr/

    I played through like the first few levels of Half Life 2 on my DK1 back in the day, but didn't want to "ruin" the experience for myself by playing through all of it, since it wasn't entirely ready and I heard there was some trouble with the car sections and whatnot and I was hoping Valve will improve on it and release it officially once the Rift and Vive were out, instead they for some reason removed VR Support from it altogether and never put it back.
    :negative:

    Would be nice being able to play through both in VR back to back.

    it's not $200.

    Valve Index isn't actually available in Russia. Google bamboozled me by showing fake numbers.

    Even better, the guy who spearheaded them, Andrew Willson, became the current CEO of Electronic Arts.

    There is another offering which is slightly more than $1000 https://vr-zone.ru/valve-index-headset/
    Not sure what's the difference between valve-index and valve-index-headset, considering second one also has controllers.

    An Alyx-centered prequel is the most transparently lazy and safe idea they could have went with for a new Half-Life game (and since it's a prequel, it has the added bonus of being inconsequential by design). I don't for a second believe anyone at Valve feels any passsion or enjoyment about making a new Half-Life game, or single-player games in general (other than as a tool to sell VR hardware). But that has been obvious for more than a decade now.

    It will be delayed because it's a Valve game... don't forget about Valve Time! It will come out the same day as Bloodlines 2.

    It kinda reminds me that FPS about time traveling commando in world dominated by soviets because of some soviet experiment. I think that Mandalore reviewed this game but im not sure.

    This is the problem with the coomer, he is unable to feel shame and social stigma has no effect on him.
