    That would make it 4 games. Millennials...

    I was able to buy the valve index kit today thanks to valve opening the floodgates to Canada after the announcement. I'm pretty excited to play a lot of VR games, even ones that I got in a bundle for dirt cheap.

    Err...what? A Half-Life game plus a Portal game plus a Left4Dead game equals four? Might wanna check your math again there. If you were triggered over the 'OK Boomer' thing for some reason, it's just a play on words, since y'know...boomers are a thing in Left4Dead.

    I ordered mine today too but just because the half-life news was too much excitement. I was planning on waiting a little longer. I kinda blew my wallet prematurely.

    lol, well reading without my glasses made it look like a comma instead of a colon. So i read Portal, talking potato, and left for dead. I had to look up
    the "ok, boomer" reference and hence my reply. I didn't realize I was a boomer since I don't technically qualify by age but philosophically I'm definitely one.

    *Screams in RE7 being a "full-length" AAA VR game*

    That's actually a good incentive to get those considering they cost about as much as a gaming PC...

    There are actually quite a few full-length AAA VR games, but only one or two that are VR-ONLY. Skyrim, Doom 3, Tetris Effect, The Solus Project, and RE7 as you mentioned. For VR-only games I'd argue that Sairento VR and Arizona Sunshine fit the bill. They aren't technically AAA, but they are full-length games and have high-end graphics.

    The controllers cost about as much as a good GPU, but building a full gaming PC for $300 would be quite the feat.

    Can confirm. Trying to find some for a reasonable price rn. I really should have not been cheap and just spent the extra $50-75 to get some controllers :/

    Those minimum specs are making my wallet hurt, as I don't have a beefy VR capable PC or even a VR set. That's looking to be a fair chunk of AUD.

    If anybody is wondering why this game is VR only then watch this interview.

    This trailer makes me happy. HL3 might be a possibility now. And this game looks phenomenal, graphically and in terms of overall presentation. Who wouldn't wanna see headcrabs leaping at you in VR?

    What would be the best VR headset to buy at the moment? VIVE?

    Depends on your definition of best. There are several headsets out now with better resolution than Vive, including the Valve Index and Vive Pro. If you're looking to get something at a more reasonable price point though, Vive is a good option, along with the Windows Mixed Reality headsets or offerings by Oculus.

    What if the game was designed and for mouse and keyboard then adapted to VR, that's a possibility. I mean the worst case scenario they can use VR to Keyboard/mouse converter, in sure it exists lol
