More About Playing Half-Life Alyx Without VR

A new video from the Valve News Network follows up on the brief clip from the other day showing Half-Life: Alyx played on a flat monitor without VR. In this we learn the details on how this was done. The good news is that it didn't involve any external modding, but the bad news is that it utilized a test version of the game that's no longer available anywhere to the public. It also explains why a non-VR mod for the game will be a novelty, but ultimately will not be fun to play.

I'd like to see someone pull off the catch-and-trap a headcrab trick here without tracked controllers.

Cool video, but I'm disappointed to see the physics haven't evolved much... Using any old object as a projectile was a core mechanic in HL2, so why can't whacking an enemy with anything you can pick up hurt them now?
