Title: Half Life Alyx
Post by: Jarhead0331 on March 29, 2020, 03:24:26 PM
Wow. Another revolutionary step forward in VR gaming. Valve has filled this game with amazing atmosphere and it is really thrilling to be in a virtual Half Life world. I had to pull myself back to real life. As amazing as other titles are in VR, this is the first one I played where I simply wanted to keep going. If you have a VR headset, this is a must buy.

I know we only have a handful of VR bubbas around here, but DAMN! This is one hell of an intense game.

Worth getting as an entry point VR game?

Absolutely. It definitely is the kind of game to justify getting a headset. Without any reservation. I'm warning you though...its REALLY intense.

Ok. Now you have my attention. I have been waiting on a compelling reason to enter the VR arena.

When you say 'really intense' I take it more seriously than when others say it, JH.

Intense as in ‘on the senses due to a lot of verticality’ or intense as in shock / scare moments?

Intense as in shock/scare moments and atmosphere, which is just totally enhanced by the superb use of the VR platform.

JH, is your headset tethered to your PC or do you have wireless? The only shooter I've tried with my Vive Cosmos is Arizona Sunshine. I had fun but the cord was a constant annoyance. What's your take?

Each of my headsets are wired. HP Reverb, Oculus Rift-S and HTC Vive. The wires don't really bother me.
