News Comments > Valve on Modding VR Out of Half-Life: Alyx

I actually love Trespasser, as bad as it was...

In my opinion it wasn't as bad as most people think, also there are a lot of recent games where you e.g. need to open doors manually with the mouse. The Amnesia series and many walking simulators come to mind so it's not impossible to port this from VR...

His point was, you're going to see how dumb this game is without VR and therefore he welcomes that.

So what he and you are saying is that as a normal game HL:A is dumb, but as a VR gimmick it is great?

Very interesting, so why didn't Valve do it themselves? You just can't tell me that it wouldn't have been possible to develop VR and not VR side by side! Of course Valve wouldn't sell as much VR gear if this would have happened...

I wish they would have at least made a non-VR version alongside it.

I hope a modder will make a HL2 mod out of this without need of VR...

Imagine this happening in any other medium, take your pick.

A James Bond movie without James Bond and it's an Adam Sandler comedy. And then someone tells you "hey man, I like Adam Sandler movies, who cares what the name of the movie is, geez".

No need to go that far. How about a James Bond movie with Daniel Craig that has none of the original British charme of the old movies but is kind of a Bourne movie instead ;)!

I really don't care what they called it. The 2017 Prey was excellent and I would love a sequel.

This. I enjoyed the original Prey but wouldn't call it a classic by any means. It's an 8/10 game. Prey 2017 was pretty great, though.

I disagree, but as with many games this is a matter of taste. Prey 2017 was technicaly perfect, but it had endless backtracking and respawning blowing up a handfull of maps to a full game. In that regards they really should have called it "System Shock X", because the same thing was true in "System Shock 2"...

The guy has been saying that they don't want to make a HL3 unless it's revolutionary for 10 years now.

He only said that after they messed the HL2 episodes up with their Steam machine dreams and similar. After all the episodes were not revolutionary at all and they released them nevertheless. We were waiting for HL2:EP3 before Valve invented the HL3 rumor to silence the crowd!

Doom Eternal Is a Dizzying Catastrophe - WIRED.

Bethesda's check to Wired got lost in the mail.

Interesting review, which reminds me of the differences between HL1, where you experience the catastrophe happening, and HL2, where a lot of the most interesting stuff has happened already when you start. But what most annoyed me about Doom 2016 still seems to be quite the same in Eternal: A) the obvious arena level design which destroys any kind of surprising gameplay and B) the colorful item spawning which destroys any kind of immersion in the otherwise fantastically realistic looking world.

Didn't Arkane Studios already published SS3? Only the called it "Prey" to get the FPS fans on board which resulted in it being a flop...

You canít copyright game mechanics, if a mode becomes popular enough to spawn separate games, they wonít actually be able to claim ownership.

This might be true. Didn't PUBG try to attack Epic over the "last man standing" mode and failed?

So, in other words, they don't want people to make any more custom games stuff for their games.

No, they just don't want parasites like Valve buying the mods of people based on Blizzard games.

News Comments > Half-Life: Alyx Spurs Index Sales

Zero Punctuation recently reviewed Boneworks which is a VR game very close to what HL: Alyx could be, so it might not be as special as many people assume. Also killer app or not, it's clear that Valve only made this to boost their VR sales and probably not because they wanted to make another HL game so it might well end up dissappointing. Now HL3 or HL2: EP3 would have been a real killer app for VR :)!

I think this is a vain offer, anybody being a hardcore gamer enough to own a VR rack certainly played all the HL games already...

They have Half life Alyx and two other AAA titles on the way.

Alyx is only a push for their VR equipment, it might end up not much better than a good HL2 mod playable in VR...

I'd like to see Wesp5's face as he reads that.

As far as I know this is some kind of interactive novel and not a real game, so I am not interested :)!

I have never read such a blatant advertisement for Steam here before, so maybe Valve does indeed feel the EGS :)! They even announced a real game recently, if only for VR :(...

You literally just had a Cameron produced and co-written by sequel come out that effectively wiped out this timeline and replaced it with a new AI and future.

As far as I know the new Terminator movie was such a big failure, that the new timeline isn't any more relevant as those of T3, T4 or T5. So all we have is two good Terminator movies and maybe with this one and Terminator Future Shock two good Terminator games ;)!

It actually reminds me of Q3 Arena! The jumping part, the level design, the power-ups - this is Q3A as a (sort of) single-player experience in my opinion.

Exactly, and this already annoyed me in Doom 2016! All these "arenas" locking themselves down when you enter and thus killing any suspense. And if there is anything consoleish about new Doom, it's these colorful item drops. I mean why make the game as photorealistic as possible when killing something will immediately remind you that it's just a game?

Valve releasing anything with a 3 in it would be revolutionary.

Indeed! Maybe the Epic Store is giving them a hint that their Steam monopoly won't automatically last forever...
