Beat Alyx last night. Playing through HL2 again now. I wish I could play it in VR.

BTW, based on the way Alyx ends: HALF-LIFE 3 CONFIRMED!

IN 2034. Probably.

Just finished the game, took about 14 hours, and I missed some stuff even though I THOUGHT I was quite thorough.

Valve never, EVER said "We guarantee our games will never need advanced equipment to play". In fact, Half life 1 and 2 required hefty rigs when they came out, I don't see what the difference is here. Their goal with each HL game was to push gaming forward, and Alyx is no different.

If you don't want to get a VR kit, go watch someone else play it on YouTube. It'll be a far more authentic experience of the game than if you played a hacked together, absolutely feature-devoid version of it.

That's the thing about all the complaints about VR. People forget that back in 1998 you either had to buy a 3D card or run the game in shitty software rendering mode. Unreal did this too. Then Half-Life 2 was 3D card only. People whined back then about having to buy a 3D card, so expensive, blah blah blah. Then games started coming out with NO SOFTWARE MODE! OMGZ! RAGE! Forcing us to buy 3D card! rawr!

It's the same with people who bought games on PS1, PS2, PS3, Xbox, 360 and then had to upgrade to the new console to play the sequels.

Tech marches on. Keep up or be left behind.

You want HL: Alyx without the VR? Go find a copy of Jurassic Park: Trespasser. That's how it would play. Remember we used to call that game Arm Simulator 2000? Yeah. What fun that game was.

Absolutely the best VR game I have ever played. From the very start, just sucks you right in. I spent 15 minutes playing with markers and a wipe board, lol. Combat is great. The guns feel very real (which is an issue with quite a few games.) The lighting in this game, whew. The alien stuff in the quarantine zone. Just a fantastic job by Valve.

Now, if they could just make HL3. VR or flat, or both. Just do it!

News Comments > Half-Life: Alyx Preloads

Easy test to see why VR is awesome.

Load up Skyrim. Walk around, look at the cool scenery. Yep, been here before, looks pretty cool. Ho hum.

Load up Skyrim VR. Walk around. WOAH! WOAH! Wow, I never realized how BiG that was before! AWesome, wow, wow.

I mean, you don't get a sense of the scale of things on a flatscreen like you do actually being there and having to look up at them in VR.

I actually play ESO in VR a lot now, using a program called Vorpx, because even though it's only a stereoscopic screen and not full VR, it really makes the game more immersive.

Also, if 3D movies were a fad, why are they still making them? They stopped putting out the home version in the US, but I get all mine from Amazon UK. I just wish they still made compatible TVs. I fully expect the Avatar series to jump start glassless 3D tv functionality when it releases.

You're thinking a different game. This one wasn't even announced until 2016.

Yep, you're right, my bad. I swear this was announced for launch, but it definitely wasn't.

You don't need to break them up you simply need to regulate them. No more data-raping people. Make them pay their fair share of taxes, eliminate all the tax loopholes, etc. etc. etc. And watch as they magically turn into responsible corporate citizens who can *gasp* still make money.

I...uh....wow...I agree with Cutter. Has that ever happened before? Freak

Seriously though, we PAY Amazon tax money every year. We just need to stop giving giant corporations a free ride.

Based on the reviews, it seems like another quickie cash grab release or basically to "fulfill" their season pass commitments.

Have these DLC additions from season passes ever actually contained worthy content? I feel like every DLC add-on pack from season passes that I see on Steam are Mostly Negative and super half a$$ed in comparison to the main product.
I haven't gotten the last two Tomb Raider due to denuvo, but the first one was that way too. I only bought the single player items for the 2013 since there's no way I was playing TR deathmatch. Max Payne 3 was like that too, iirc every piece of dlc was for deathmatch.

Another turd brought to us by bethesda and your local horse armor shop. :omg.why.doesnt.blue.have.a.turd.or.poop.emote: Giggle

He used to, but one night a bug caused everyone's icon and name to become poo, and nobody could tell who was posting what shit, and what crap was worth reading and what doo doo was just CJ having a meltdown or what dung was Cutter freaking out, and so the poo emojie had to be dumped so some semblance of sanity could return.

Also, caca.

I think killing is more accepted by society because there are genuine circumstances in reality where killing someone is justified, and at times even legal. You can't really say the same about rape. Without making up ridiculous, non-real world scenarios, there simply isn't any justification.

Killing? Sure. There are times when that's justified. Murder, and specifically Murder One? I'm gonna go with no on that one.

Mostly, I agree. However the leap from justified killing to murder? Sometimes it is all in the intent, sometimes the "murder" should have been legal and the accused simply became a victim of an overzealous DA, etc. Anyway, my point was that if one type of killing is justified, it's easier to accept any type of killing. Our society is bombarded by killing every day, from the news to entertainment. Is murder OK? No, but it's so pervasive that we tend to be a little desensitized to it.

Rape, because there is no circumstance wherein it is acceptable to society, is much harder for people to swallow.

Anyway, I am all for the freedom to do and think what you like, but if someone tells me they love rape porn, I'm probably not going to associate with them anymore.

50 million could also = 5 million with an average of 10 accounts each, and etc. I'm always leery when companies start finding large, completely unverifiable numbers to insert into their marketing spiels. Especially for games which cost *nothing* initially to play! It often is an indicator of desperation as opposed to a trumpeting of success...;) But Free-to-play internally monetized ga--er, rip-offs, are not my cup of tea, fortunately!

Please explain why anybody would need more than one account in Apex. Don't you think it would be noticed in the quarterly financials if these companies inflate the player numbers? Also with a bit of tech know-how, you can get a list of apex servers currently spun up so the numbers can be verified to a degree.

I dunno, I think Walt might be underestimating. I personally have 17 Apex accounts, and I don't even play that much.


Uh, why?

I mean, part of it is that, if you're a victim of murder, you're not a consumer of video games anymore. If you're a victim of rape, you are. Playing as a character raping or being raped isn't really novel or fun if you've been raped yourself.

And while, yes, the family of victims of murder play games, it isn't quite the same. Putting in something that you are 100% certain will harm many potential consumers is usually not a smart way to go, and few stories are made better with rape.

I can sort of see that argument, but let's be honest, is someone who was a victim of rape ever going to play this?

And obviously he doesn't do this to attract many customers. He'll be lucky if he sells 500 copies.

I just genuinely don't get it. We allow hentai to be sold in the US where underage schoolgirls get tentacle raped by demons, but once it's a game OH NOES it's taboo?



MMm, I agree with Creston. There are rape porn videos, books with rape, movies with rape...I mean, yeah. It's not something I would have an interest in, but I can't see flipping out about it either.

I think killing is more accepted by society because there are genuine circumstances in reality where killing someone is justified, and at times even legal. You can't really say the same about rape. Without making up ridiculous, non-real world scenarios, there simply isn't any justification.

News Comments > Apex Legends Hits 1M Players Right Off

Ok, so I pretty much played this game all weekend long. It's very addicting and fun. The only problems I have with it are: PEOPLE. Just like every multiplayer game.

The people who go off in 2 seperate directions so you try to pick one to follow only it is obvious they do not want to play as a squad.

The people who die/quit immediately after jumping so you essentially play solo. (Although I have hit 3rd and 2nd place a few times as a solo.)

The people who grab EVERYTHING and then curse you out because you die, even though they left you nothing to fight with.

The people who knowingly walk into a fire fight with 5 other squads and curse you out because you couldn't rez them even though you were a bit busy fighting for your life.


When you get a decent squad, or even a not terrible squad this game is brilliant. Much harder to enjoy with horrible players or assholes.

So I saw a bunch of my Origin friends playing this and decided what the hell. It's free, right?

It's actually pretty fun. Like, I wish Overwatch was this fun. I just spent 2 hours having my ass handed to me, but it was fun anyway.

I still wish they had mechs, though.

Always had NVidia cards, from their very first accelerator to today. I tried AMD once. When Star Wars Galaxies came out, the card was supposed to be the best. I HATED it. Things looked funny, there were glitches all over. I sold it and got another NVidia and VIOLA! SWG ran great and looked awesome. Never tried again.
