Does Crowbar Collective has access to Source source code?, i'm not talking about the sdk, i'm talking about the actual source code used to compile the game executable.


I believe they do. Once they went commercial they got access to much deeper levels of the Source tools, something they confirmed.

That's also a weird little situation where yep, they got access to Source... it's just that they didn't really do much with it. They added a few features but when it comes to the quality of the rendering and the renderer itself it's still the same old DirectX 9 shit. In fact's BM's image quality is even a bit worse than what you can get out of the original HL2 since the features they implemented broke MSAA so now if you want AA you're stuck with FXAA. When you add stuff like the performance issues and whatnot on top of that what you're getting is sadly a really bad and outdated engine at this point.

GMan is looking good.

Tony Todd as Vortigaunt!

Is Alyx the same voice from HL2? It sounds different and younger....Eli is obviously different because the original VA died.

Alyx has a new voice actor too:

Aww. I guess it depends on just how long before HL2 this takes place in. I wonder if we'll see a smaller D0G and have you building parts on him.

Voice actor for Barney and Gman is back too apparently.

I like how the y in Alyx is an upside-down Lambda.

I think I'll give this one a hard pass. Won't buy expensive VR gear for just one game.

As for me, I'm going to start saving. I'm not going to get it day one. Not even year one. But I will get it.

According to Geoff Keighley, Alyx takes about 15 hours to complete, so it's not like a HL2 DLC at least. Still, I wonder why I should spend 500+ bucks on VR gear when it's just for one game and after that it's rotting in a dark corner.

Because they're shipping the developer tools with it (as usual) and there will likely be tons of community content. Not to mention this is Valve's attempt to kickstart VR. If it works there will be much more than just HLA. It'll only work if people get it though. So you're a self-fulfilling prophecy by stepping back.

Not that I blame you of course. I'm definitely waiting. Just answering your question.

VR too expensive over here, also i would have to give my pc a serious upgrade. Even if i had that money, there's ton of other stuff i'd rather use it for.

So, Half-Life Alyx - Full Game Walkthrough - No Commentary it is.

There's the option to rent a VR set for a month, play the game and then return the gear. If I play Alyx, then only like that.

Quick question. I'm trying to track down a mod that at least used to be highly recommended, but I forgot what the name of it was. I had it written down somewhere but the file's gone. All I remember about it is that it was set shortly before the events of HL2, and you played as a citizen or Resistance soldier or something like that. Or at least that's what the blurb said. I haven't played it yet and now that I feel that it's time I can't remember what it was called.

Could it be The Citizen?, but is set parallel to hl2, not before.

It's not that one. I've played that one a fair number of times. This one explicitly said it was before Gordon arrived in City 17.

Precursor? 1187? There are quite a few mods like that.

I think it was Precursor. Having not played it and forgetting the name, its premise was the only thing I had to go on.

Thank you.

I know that this is just some goofing around Michael Shapiro did as a surprise but hearing the G-Man again just makes me so happy. It's also a good sign to see Valve opening up a bit in communication, you get the sense that yeah, the band is back together and things will just move forward from now on instead of the "we don't make games anymore" bullshit. I won't play Alyx for a long time I guess because in its current state I really don't care about VR but it really looks like that Half-Life 3 can happen now finally.

To me there are kinda two "holy FPS franchises": Doom and Half-Life. Those games never let me down, no matter which one I played I always had fun (yes, even with Doom 3) and they always gave me a new experience in some shape or form so it would be just lovely to swing that crowbar again too after the super shotgun.
