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.

People are still angry about this being in VR, huh? Lol.

I like horror games like the Frictional Games sort of stuff. They get me tense, for sure. But in HL:A - even though it's atmosphere is not nearly as daunting as say Penumbra, or Amnesia - seeing a headcrab unexpectedly flying through the air at my head in VR gives me the chills. But, damn - the weapons feel so solid, that shotgun just wreaks immediate havoc.

I mean here's one cool thing the anti-VR people aren't going to realize or perceive. Looking down the really cool 3D laser sights on the handgun... And that is just a little sliver of the cool things that cannot be conveyed without actually giving it a shot in VR.
