    I'm so fucken hyped. This is what I've been waiting for for the past ~3-4 years. I have to go replay the HL games now.

    Valve has released a new game every year since 1999, except for 2002, 2015, and 2017. Those last two were likely due to them working on secret VR stuff (like this), and if this game comes out in 2019 then it'll be the first time they've released two games in a single year.

    Let the hype begins...

    IMO chronologically speaking the game sure will be set between Half-Life and Half-Life 2, also im sure some people will not like the fact that is a VR game...

    Yet another slap to the face for those of us waiting since the 2008 cliffhanger ending to HL2... Fuck Valve at this point.

    Ah, sweet! A new Half-Life game!

    Oh, VR. Let me just get right on that with my AMD A8-7650K, 8 gigs of RAM, and no dedicated graphics card.

    Also no money.

    To be honest this might be the closest we'll ever get to Half-Life 3.

    Might be.

    I got my Xbox One as a Christmas gift from my stepdad, not to mention that it's the Forza one, so it has sentimental value to me.

    And I'd honestly rather not sell my Switch and lose the ability to play all of the games I have for it all just to play a single VR game.

    It'll probably be an overpriced short "experience". Of course a female protagonist, because of diversity, SJWs and stuff.
    Oh well, It will be interesting to see if it is any good.

    You're right. I take that back. I normally don't recommend selling your old systems. Get a part time job and save up. all you really need is about 1,000 dollars. 600 for the pc 400 for the rift s.
