I was watching a video on Youtube that talked about HL3 and Valve and because Gabe Newell is rolling in dough from skimming off the top selling other people's content, why take the risk on trying to make HL3 and risking it flopping? They will just string us along counting their money from Steam until everyone that actually wanted HL3 dies off.

No, it's called be a fat lazy fucking asshole who has no drive other than making profit from other people's hard work. The guy has become the next George Lucas, someone who has lost his desire and will to continue on. If he can't find the time or will or desire to complete the Half Life story, then sell it off or have someone else finish it.

But please do not defend this asshole as someone who never intended to finish the HL3 story. That is utter bulshit to say they never intended to make HL3.

Valve as a whole has forgotten where they came from and what made Valve what it is today.

Do you not think Steam requires work?

Give me a break Beamer, we are not talking about Steam. let's not compare apple to oranges.

Valve should not be mixing these two companies in to one melting pot. If they are then there's the issue and why Valve is dysfunctional.

I guess he got tired of waiting to write the new story for part 3 so he left. Can't blame him. This game is starting to feel like Duke nukem forever. I guess valve wants HL3 to be the new crowning king of vaporware.

For all we know he has written them enough material for 5 half life games in the 8 years since the last episode, you don't need to make the game to write one.

Highly unlikely, It's like the Hollywood movie writers. do you know how many re-writes a script goes through before one gets approved for a movie? Imagine how this game is and has been. for all we know Valve is just stringing everyone along. I doubt we'll ever see HL3.

The only thing that is surprising about this is that the average gamer somehow thinks this will be anything more than a niche product.

With that kind of a price it will be... I have a hard time believing the production cost of some cheap headphones and a gutted Samsung phone add up to $600...

Even at 300 it's a niche product.

There just isn't a large enough catalog of popular casual titles to support it.

1. Motion sickness is inevitable, after a lengthy playthrough, REGARDLESS of the changes made to refresh rate. This is part of the 'my body isn't physically doing what my eyes are saying,' effect. There's a scientific term for this, I'm sure, but that's the best way to explain it. More than 45 minutes inside, and I need a break, and even then I suffer from dizziness or nausea. I should mention I'm extremely into rollercoasters, rides, skydiving, etc., so it's totally cerebral of an effect.

Yeah I tried DK2 and experienced the same thing. The problem isn't so much using it, for me the issue was taking it off and for about 30 minutes after feeling dizzy as my brain readjusted to the world moving, and my body actually moving along with it..

If our eyes are telling us we're moving, and our ears aren't feeling our equilibrium changing - we're gonna feel queasy.

you wont catch me with one of these on my head. Yea, everyone thinks these things are kewl and great. but in the long run, many are going to end up with Vertigo. And probably in a bad way.

I will be staying on Win 7 until you either build an OS that makes sense and works with out all the backdoor spying or I die first.

What luck, you are already using an OS with the exact same "spying" capabilities as Windows 10. Why are people still not understanding this.

No, you are full of shit. I know what KBs they want to install to do that bullshit, and those KBs are not installed.

You need to get more informed.

And lets at least be realistic, there is no real way to remove it from Win 10. at least win 7 can be fixed up unlike that POS OS.

OK, someone really needs to explain to me why Cover is being regarded as bad? This to me is just stupid to comment as such. This is what happens in real life this is not some Rambo game where you stand out in the open blasting away like a madman. There is nothing wrong with cover.

No, it's not garbage, it's not that bad of a game. There are definitely things they did that annoy the hell out of me, but we have a Coop campaign going now, and it hasn't been that bad of a game. They just released a Drow as a playable race, and they are pretty good.

I completely hated how the combat worked in this game. It was so stupid, I think they really tried to get to clever with it and in the long run it ended up biting them hard.

Well, I had been waiting on this game for a very long time to come out on the PC. I never thought it would. So glad they did.

So I picked it up on GMG for $23.10 with this 23 percent off Voucher. 23PERC-WTHGMG-ADVENT

Go and buy it, you just can't beat this price.

Where is the MOD that makes the game fun?

There are no amount of mods that can make this game fun. Only a complete overhaul of the game adding a Story and Campaign can do that. You can only make it look better but that has never been the issue with this game.

Damn straight Spanky. I'm keeping my Windows 7 machine for life. I got Windows 7 on one system and Windows 10 on another just for kicks. But I don't feel "safe" giving up my 7 anytime soon. More truthfully said, probably never, well, until I'm dead. Then I might loosen my grip a bit.

Im with you, this is my feeling exactly on Win 10. Win 10 can go straight to hell and fucking die a horrible death.

I can understand the frustration, but multi-gpu setups are niche within a niche, so I can easily see why support is low priority for developers too.

I picked this up already. Looking forward to it once I take a break from FO4. Maybe there'll be a patch or two by then.

^ This,

I would be very curious as to how many of us blues crew here actually run multi GPU setups. I'm betting its very minimal. and that is why devs don't bother with supporting it very often.

And btw, this game has that shitty DRM Denuvo. Another reason to avoid this game.
