Just caught the trailer. For anyone that has never played Half Life through should sure be in for a treat! What's mind blowing is that if you never did, imagine, we had this in 1998? WHERE tf where you?

I remember playing the Half-Life: Day One leak (thanks Creative Labs!) the night it hit the net. I was completely glued to my monitor.

When the biggest 3d games you had played up to that point were Quake, System Shock and Sin.. HL was on another level entirely.

Graphically it's definitely missing HBAO though, strange omission since I'm sure Source 2 supports it by now.

You can force it through the NV control panel if you game on NVdeeuh.

Anyone else getting down on this? Ima get down on this. Been jonsing for from Forgotten Realms for a long while now. I wonder how early EA is though. Must be beta at least though. Right? Maybe?!

I can't wait for this, but I'm going to pass on the EA. I'd rather dive directly into the full game when I do take the plunge.

Edit: Well I guess everyone agrees.

And in all this time you still dance around the scenario which illustrates the point. There is no app called Half-Life Alyx yet. Which leads to > No one knows the effect it will have on the market once it's an actual product.

If it flops, how can it be considered VR's killer app? Or is killer app just a fluid, app of the week like term to throw around, as Beamet suggested you're doing?

To be clear, I highly suspect it will take the crown, but that's beside the point. Unreleased products can even be canceled. How would such a thing hold the title?

If he bothered to educate himself he’d understand the nuance of it all.

I suspect he'll still refute my last point. Just plain stubbornness at this stage.

Edit:heh.

Please stop trying to redefine it as something else.

Correct, not yet.

How many times are we going to retread this ad nauseam argument?

A launched product isn't what identifies a product as a killer app. The only condition is "any computer program that is so necessary or desirable that it proves the core value of some larger technology, such as computer hardware." The fact the Index sold out last year, and numerous other VR devices had their sales boosted, and the fact that Valve warns the device will likely sell out on Monday is PROOF it remains a killer app.

And if it flops? "Half-Life: Alyx, the killer app no one owned, that was a killer app till someone was able to run it, which then tanked the VR market is THE killer app for VR!"

That makes sense.

Edit: BTW, I've seen more than one recent article, not just the one I quoted in that thread, refer to HL:A as a *possible* killer app. Not one yet.

30 years ago I would have sold one of your kidneys to get a unit of vr.
If valve were to make a nonvr half life game I’d buy it on day one. Now I’ll wait while early adopters, god bless em, work out all the vr kinks.

That's fair, I sold your mom to get mine.

None the less, my post was more about the general tone in this thread.

I've had the same theory as KX (for once). HL3 is just as synonymous with Valve as Steam is. A flop would hurt the Valve brand, which would thus hurt Steam indirectly.

Which ever way HL:A swings it's experimental, so it's all good. If it's a hit it will then *cough* likely be VR's killer app. If it flops, well everyone will just admit at least they tried to make a true AAA VR title.

Just a theory though.

This thing runs on the freaking Oculus Quest. If that's too much of an investment, don't know what to say. It is what it is.

I, for one, welcome our new VR developers.

"BBC Click's Marc Cieslak was one of the first people in the world to play it, and he suggests it could be VR's first killer app."


....*COULD* be VR's killer app... *COULD* be.........

Almost as if to say, because it's not released yet, it isn't yet a killer app. Hmmm.......
