    I can't wait to play this on my Quest! Higher resolution than both my CV1 and Rift S.
    Edit: Plus, it's an OLED screen!

    Putting up the sensors for the best tracking in VR is so easy, what a big baby.

    You... Do realize that the 10 minutes it takes to install 2 lighthouse base stations gives you substantially better movement and tracking that's not only noticeable in the VR gameplay, but is also something that only has to be done once compared to "Recenter headset." every time you drift in the other untracked models?

    Valve gifts you Alyx for free if you buy the Index before 2019, and if you bought the game before they refund it for you

    You cant expect a triple A game for VR if you also expect them to make it standard.
    The work it takes to make a GOOD AAA game is too high, and doing both things would be making 2 games. I speak from experience.
    Also, its not HL3, the people waiting are still technically waiting.

    i preordered it day 1. I dont preorder games these days either, it's a bad practice usually because it enables developers to be dickheads, but lets get real for a second, this is an official valve Half-life game. I was buying this regardless.

    I no longer pre-order, but HL: Alyx was an exception, plus i couldn't pass up the slight discount right now. I went out and bought myself a Rift S last saturday so I can play Alyx...as well as Boneworks and Stormland... SuperhotVR is freakin amazing.

    lighthouses take like all of 10 minutes to set up tops and you get the best tracking of any VR system...you dont even need to plug them into your pc just an outlet, its like plugging in a lamp...

    I think preordering is fine if the company has never made a bad game.

    This reeks of another valve tech demo turned game. And if that's the case I think it should have been another portal.

    Borderlands 3 taught me my lesson. I’m never pre ordering a game again. Can’t wait to play this game but I am waiting for at least a few patches

    I think part of the reason your outlook on VR is better is because you're way fitter. VR, albeit to a lesser extent than traditional exercise, is still exercise.

    I would have just bought the Index controllers and got the game with them... I would have... if I hadn't recently received a £1,300 refund from my water company... so, I bought the Index headset and controllers, too :D

    yo rich if you want more good vr gunplay, i recommend checking out Hotdogs, Horseshoes, and Hand Grenades

  • Paladin

    you get it for free if you buy the index headset or controllers

  • asdaffewwerqa asafdaqwrad

    Why pre-order a digital game? It's not like they gonna run out of keys.

    • Nosrah
      Nosrah 19 days ago

      Yes, but you need to download it first. In some cases, people who pre-order have the opportunity to download or even play the game before its official release. That’s still only around a 24hr time difference though so yeah, I don’t really get the point either.

    • asdaffewwerqa asafdaqwrad
      asdaffewwerqa asafdaqwrad 19 days ago

      "soon as possible" you mean the few seconds it takes you to click buy and pay?

    • Nosrah
      Nosrah 19 days ago

      So that the game can be played as soon as possible.

  • Terron29
    Terron29 20 days ago

    I also liked it quite a bit......gonna buy a vr headset for it lol, a damn good one too. been waiting since 2004 for a damn new half life. Just about the only game that would get me to buy a vr set lol. good on ya valve.

  • Shikibara

    I hope that VR keeps getting titles like Superhot, Sparc, Beatsaber, and Alyx (presuming it's as good as it looks). The more top-notch titles that come to VR the more likely people will pick up a VR headset, especially since VR headsets have become more convenient. The bigger the marketplace grows, the more money will be introduced to improve the hardware and encourage indie devs to create titles for VR and push the bounds in mechanics. If we can see a day were all VR headsets are untethered, inside out tracking, and high-quality screens, I feel it will become a great addition to the gaming scene.

  • Bjorn Olfactory

    I hope modders can eventually find a way to make it playable without VR. That will probably never happen or take a long, long time.

    If you preorder games you are part of the problem.

  • Val Pal
    Val Pal 20 days ago

    I don't get the hate for outside-in tracking. It takes all of five or ten minutes to set up and it's the same as the Rift. Once it's in, it's in. And you don't have to worry about it again.

  • Almar AZL9S
    Almar AZL9S 21 day ago

    Wasn't it you that said *NOT* to preorder games or am I thinking of someone else?
    Either way, I avoid mobile and VR platforms for personal reasons so I won't get this.
    Hope you don't regret your decision and enjoy your future game Rich.

    Wow Rich! You are so smart pre-ordering it. I mean god forbid they sell out of keys. That happens all the time!

      @Rafael Marcellino Yes that is correct. What point are you trying to make here?

    • Rafael Marcellino

      Index will get the game for free

    • Josh Goddard

      You don't need the Index to play. It supports lots of other headsets from different companies.
