    Compromises have to be made one way or the other. The best VR-optional games are on-rails shooters and/or cockpit games, which are limiting formats in their own right. The only way to take full advantage of the capabilities of virtual reality is to design games for it from the ground up.

    The RV makes me sick, even vomiting. :wacko:
    Because of the ps4 and its kart game where you have to slide a road and slalom between the cars....
    I don't have a ps4, just tested with a friend....

    It can reveal interesting informations that we've been looking for, like what's the G-Man connection to Eli and Alyx..

    Nah, it features Knuckles from Sonic 3.

    Which is even better.

    Yeah, that'd be more acceptable if it wasn't so damn late.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm sure this is great but it's not what the fan base has been waiting for.

    And yet the $1000 Valve Index full kit has been #1 on the Steam top sellers list for two days straight now. With the controllers and headset+controllers also in the top ten. It's less about selling their own hardware and more about supporting the VR market in general though, since they also link to other headsets you can buy. Lots of die-hard Half-Life fans out there.

    Characters and graphics look great but the VR looks meh. Unfortunate that Valve can't figure out how to give you arms when a small team like Stress Level Zero can.

    At this point the fanbase excepts nothing imo, what I wanted was simply ep3 but if they'd make it now it's be weird and hl3 would be weird without ep3 before it...

    Very true, excellent point. No one to blame but themselves for that sentiment. What a shame.

    After a while I personally thought they were just going to roll ep3 into hl3 but neither one of those things happened.
