"Half-Life: Alyx is Valve’s VR return to the Half-Life series. It’s the story of an impossible fight against a vicious alien race known as the Combine, set between the events of Half-Life and Half-Life 2. Playing as Alyx Vance, you are humanity’s only chance for survival."

The new Half-Life game trailer dropped today and if I was underwhelmed by the announcement of a VR Half-Life game that dissipated somewhat as this game does look good. The chances I buy a PC VR set for this are low but if I ever were to get one this is the first game i'd buy for it.

It makes sense that Valve would make a new Half-Life game in VR but when asked about if a Half-Life 3 would be VR only they said no. Since this isn't Half-Life 3 that's not wrong but this does look to be VR only. I wonder if they will release a traditional keyboard & mouse or controller version of this game? That said, if you have a VR setup on PC this seems to be something worth checking out.

Oh and the graphics in Half-Life: Alyx are incredible. Half-Life 2 looks good but these graphics are incredibly beautiful.

I'm now wondering if Valve will use Half-Life: Alyx to see if they can make a game at the quality level that people would expect as they make their way to Half-Life: 3? Or maybe I just need to let the idea of a Half-Life: 3 go? I thought I had but maybe I can't quite the dream of a Half-Life: 3? I wonder if Half-Life: 3 would make me buy PC VR?

If they made a full sequel VR only, they’d have riots at Valve HQ 😂

I bet they would. Maybe why Alyx isn’t HL3 😂
