  1. Will there be an opportunity to sell these eggs at a good price in the future?

    Half-Life: Alyx

    Finally finished it. Beats Astrobot to become my new no1 VR game. When people ponder if this game would work without VR they often mention the loss of the immersion. It’s a huge part of this but I think what is undersold about this game (and VR in general) are the intuitiveness of ‘touch’ controls. I’ll try and explain one of my biggest ‘wow’ moments, it’s incredibly mundane but I think it’s important. So I’m about to open a door but I have a grenade in one hand and gun in another. My ‘wrist pocket’ was full so I couldn’t put the grenade in there. I needed my hand holding the grenade to open the door. I was about to just throw it on the floor but there was an electric box panel right next to the door. So I place the grenade on top of the box panel, open the door and then grab the grenade back again This wasn’t a feature or a mechanic, it was just me making creative use of the scenery. If this wasn’t a VR game you’d just be switching item wheel slots or inventory or a binary drop/pickup. Anyway, I could talk about a hundred much more exciting moments I had in this game but felt the need to explain something a bit more mundane. I don’t think I had really played a VR game properly since Astrobot about a year ago, Alyx has got me excited about VR again. I just hope AAA studios continue to risk making VR games with this much polish and passion.
  3. Fun fact. This forum used to be the Edge forums.

    Oh! No I was using the initial method all the way through VR has come a long way since my first VR kit (Oculus DK 2) where I played many horrendous unofficial 'indie' demos that would really make me ill. Including a fairground ride that span you round and round over this city. That was my first and real head messing moment, I tried to keep going, just out of curiosity and when it stopped I was absolutely fucked. Would even 'remember' the feeling for weeks afterwards where even the memory brought back a mild queasiness.

    There are some insane next level optimizations going on here. There ARE other VR games with graphics as polished and high end as this but they don't run very well and get quite uncomfortable quickly. I've noticed that if you look directly down, depending on how your headset is placed you can see effects like shadows vanishing. There is a very fancy level of detail system based on reducing lighting/shadows/polycount on objects outside of your vision. I'm sure that's just a small fraction of the clever tech they have here to be able to have such a large game that is so polished and can be played on for over a hour with no sickness at all. I think my longest session is 2 hours. In the past I think about 30mins was my usual limit before feeling at the very least 'VR fatigued'. Not sick (I'm finding that's less common these days) but just a sense of some kind of energy fatigue.

    Just finished chapter JEFF, I'm a broken shell of a human after that. I'm holding out before giving my full impressions of this game but it's full of continuous memories, memories that I think stick more because VR somehow makes them more memorable. These little moments where you really believed you were in a certain moment within this world.

    Can anyone spoiler how long this this? Just started chapter 6. I can't believe what they have achieved here. I was kinda expecting a Batman VR type 2-3 hr experience where you go through some atmospheric areas, do some puzzles with a set pieces with enemies. Perhaps a separate shooting range kind of mode added on. Nope, this is a full-on proper game. It's insane that this kinda came out of nowhere.

    Not had time to keep up with this, so apologies if an old question but what's the most common way of playing this? standup or sitdown?
  10. Fan of the comic, I found my gf started watching this so I tagged along. I quite enjoyed it for the first few episodes and then just kept watching out of curiosity, minus the one or two decent episodes it gets worse and worse. Really misses the edge of the comic and changes far too much. Some really strange choices too, like for the Bode ghost they fully rebuild him in full CG detail and it looks awful. All they had to do is have a ghostly silhouette.
  11. Yeah, I'm still enjoying this too. Looks like there are 9 episodes, so only 2 left.
  12. Haha, this card is so forgetful that @The Fox forgot about about the main men's EC match where only Roman Reigns can win.
