Half Life: Alyx

I am really looking forward to this. Sure it isn't Half Life 3 but it's something huge for VR.

Even though I more or less had all the pictures, just spent like 10 hours writing a review of Alyx, which probably no one will read  😞 It's in Danish, but there're 50 pictures  o:)

Guess I've now done my part for local VR adoption this year  o:) 

Hmmm, should I update it due to the bottles... Sigh 😉

I think you need to increase the quality of the screen shots you're using on that site. They all seem to have a lot of compression artifacts. In this day and age there really isn't any reason to compress images that much.The screen shots really do a dis-service to the graphics of Half Life: ALyx IMHO.

Thanks for the feedback - it's to keep down the size of the page, it's about 5MB right now. I'll try to use less aggressive compression next time! (Might look better on a phone or tablet)

So I've avoided this thread like COVID-19 cos I don't want to see any spoilers but now I've started to play the game and I've found an issue with the controls.

My stick goes into opposite mode lol ??

Anyone else have this problem? Tends to happen whenever I walk into things. I also had a similar problem playing Half Life 1 VR Mod too.

No problems playing any other games so I know it isn't a controller issue.

Is it just me that's having this problem?

No idea how I caused that but it was a bug, I'm pretty sure I had a similar experience in the 90s playing the original game but with ladders.

Started a new game and everything is working fine so far.

The only complaint I have so far is this:

Where the FUCK is my fucking crowbar ffs!!! ???

They actively punish you for melee reflexes. Your guns seem to count as part of your body, so if you try to hit a headcrab in mid jump with your gun, it hurts you rather than it.

yep, but you can catch a headcrab with one hand and finish it off with round in the gut  >:)
