Great. He's working on Half Life VR, which will be a prequel to Half Life 2 because prequels are always universally beloved critically needed pieces of the overall story that never do anything wrong. Because we all know that what we really wanted in the throne room on the second Death Star was to find out what Vader was like as a little kid.


I calculated the odds of this succeeding versus the odds I was doing something incredibly stupid... and I went ahead anyway.

If it's not coming out for the PC, it's dead to me.

that's rather short sighted don't you think?

we all know VR will be everywhere in less than a decade, and we're still playing HL1 & 2 almost 2 decades later...

Valve is a is a wayward vessel full of STEAM, they need to figure out what the hell they're really doing besides middle manning games & hosting DOTA championships all over the US.

Battle Royale doesn't require a lick of story... lol. y;'all silly.

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

In this day and age, and also taking into account some of the other joking posts, I'll do a +1 as long as it means having a substantial story driven single player element in it that is furthermore not littered with micro-transactions and other modern day crap that inevitably ends up negatively affecting the choices made during the game design. If there is one company that can afford doing a proper game that honours the art it's Valve.

I don't think that there is an auditorium big enough for all the booing that would ensue.

A farm will do. Easier to clean up blood stains from thrown crowbars damage. Although they may have to re-purpose the farm afterwards as a slaughter house or crematorium.
