  1. I wish it was still 10 minutes ago when I had hope I might be able to play this game in 2020.

    Btw, how the hell is $650 a budget anything? That’s a shit ton of money right there. More than I’ve ever had to spend on anything that wasn’t absolutely necessary.

  2. having it cheap is very good news but it gets ruined by the fact that VR is too expansive and that you need to buy a PC that will run it

  3. my favourite vr games just for the record:
    (note these are the games i keep coming back for. very replayable. i play some of them every week and have for years)

    1. onward
    2. dirt rally
    3. project cars 2
    4. pistol whip
    5. dirt rally 2.0
    6. assetto corsa
    7. boneworks
    8. bigscreen beta

    great games that you may only play once or twice. but they are amazing:

    rick and morty vr
    accounting +
    trover saves the universe
    robo recall
    lone echo
    arizona sunshine
    zero calibre
    the gallery
    in death

    there are many many many more.
    some i dont play but are very very well regarded:

    no mans sky
    asgards wrath
    budget cuts
    the climb
    vader immortal

    ugh, there are too many to list.

    there are also a lot of local multiplayer games that are great (one player in vr, one or more on the monitor/ tv/ phone screen).

    ones i am very much looking out for: (releasing next year)

    medal of honour
    half life alyx

    good for a scare:

    paranormal activity
    dreadhalls (definitely recommend. even though its old)
    five nights at freddy's
    a chair in a room
    contagion vr
    there are more, just cant recall them right now.

  4. half life alyx better have all the weapons of other games, including two handed weapons. if that shotgun handgun thing in the trailer turns out to not be a handgun but actually the shotgun. so there is no two handed shotgun… thats enough to turn me off. if you are going to make a vr game. do it properly. the lack of two handed weapons has always been a surefire way for me to detect a bad vr game. also, it better have proper free locomotion. like in games like onward. implemented in a way that doesnt make you feel sick. no inertia, no acceleration/ deceleration. no traditional effects. just stop and go at a set speed depending on thumbstick position. no bumping up and down. just sliding. trust me, it works good. onward and pavlov feel amazing to play and have never ever left me feeling sick. also, please dont add too many special effects. or give us the option to turn every single graphical option possible on or off for according to preference. not just for performance reasons. kiss. keep it simple stupid.

    and please do not be adding full body ik etc. just hands is fine. it works the best and is by far the most immersive. also full body disconnect leads to nausea in many people, if you cant see your body you cant feel disconnected from it and sick. boneworks is an amazing game. but not at all immersive. you know the whole time you are playing a game. controlling a character that lags behind your movents. i like it in that game. sort of. not really so far, but i want to like it. but in any other game, no thanks. its far far far too janky.

    thats it. enough said 🙂

    the vive has terrible sde and low res screen. terrible wands/ controllers. brilliant tracking of headset and wands. but every other headset has full roomscale too. you make it seem like only lighthouse can do it. wmr can too. and the headset tracking of wmr is basically perfect, its only the controllers that are not.

    also, what about other wmr headsets? obviously the samsung odyssey is the best, although there are advantages and disadvantages, like the oled screen looks better than other wmr headsets with lcd, except it has more sde. unless its the samsung odyssey + which has an anti sde filter, which potentiall blurs the image a bit.

  6. Spending 1000 bucks on Alyx+Boneworks.
    I'd rather rent the Index for 50 bucks a month and save the rest for a RTX2180TI…
    Let's be honest, it's gonna be at least 2-4 years before another great AAA VR game hits the market, waste of money.

  7. I have a couple WMR headsets and the inside out tracking works great. To be honest outside in is totally unacceptable. Half of the fun is bringing it over for friends and kids. Changing rooms, houses, or venues requires very little effort. Microsoft still continues to update their WMR drivers but I've heard nothing about hand tracking for their controllers and I won't be holding my breath for them to do so as they no longer seem to be interested in pursuing VR gaming for PC or next generation Xbox. If Valve comes out with a Quest like device themselves at the same price…. TAKE MY MONEY!!!
    I have to add that the sense of wonderment the kids have while experienceing VR is something to cherish. Watching and helping them explore is a surprisingly satisfying reward unto itself.

  8. Do you think after half life alyx has been out long enough Someone will make a made that makes it non vr and playable with a keyboard and mouse

  9. Probably should have mentioned the Oculus quest, Since now Oculus link is a thing you can use in order too play PCVR games and the official half life website states it's an option.

  10. Me before half life Alyx: I waited 3 years and stuck with a 1050 from 2016 to the near end of 2019, I finally got a rig with a 2080 and i7 after 3 whole long years I finally have a computer that demolishes new games

    Me after half life alyx trailer: Oh ok I need VR now fucking great

  11. Judging by the comments the only way people are going to be able to play this is by watching a 1080p or higher 60 fps walkthroughs of the entire game pretending they've got VR gear themselves.

  12. ok guys, so these are not the cheapest way , there is even a cheaper version i know , go check out leap motion with vridge
    its not the best but what can u expect for 100$

  13. I just threw common sense out of the window (no, not a wife. no wife = no problem) and bought index off the bat. Along with upgrades for my computer. D:

  14. Here's my list for the minimum requirements:

    MOBO: Gigabyte GA-A320M-S2H Micro ATX AM4 / ASRock A320M-HDV R4.0

    CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1600 3.2GHz 6-Core

    CPU Cooler: ARCTIC Alpine AM4 LP (Or compatable w/ above)

    RAM: 8 GB, 4 GB DDR4 (Total of 16 GB)

    PSU: 600 W 80+ ATX (~347W Needed)

    Storage: Hitachi 1/2 TB HDD (preferablly SSD)

    GFX Card/Video Card: XFX Radeon RX 580 8 GB

  15. added tip: which ever headset you get, try and get some time in playing Pistol Whip on Deadeye mode. The game is awesome fun by itself but playing it (especially on deadeye) will help you get your hand-eye coordination for aiming down.

  16. @valve news network I’m not a YouTuber but I just uploaded my first video in 7 years. I thought you might get a laugh out of it. It’s called Half-Life: Alyx mouse and keyboard play-testing leaked!!!

  17. Today I just paid off my car so I'm gonna have a considerable amount of extra income I could use for my VR interests. As a bonus the computer I already have seems to be perfectly fine for running the game already.

  18. Problem: I'm getting my headset in april at the lowest. How am I going to get a headset in april? VR prices might as well be all time high by then.
