Is it really that time again?


We're very excited about the recently announced Half-Life: Alyx.

As you might appreciate, it's been a while since we posted any content here. While we cannot promise a resumption of full news coverage, we will attempt to cover Half-Life: Alyx as we learn more.

As ever, you can join in the discussion (there are people still there) over at our Forums.

I will see you up ahead.

I had literally finally given up hope just last week, and then this was announced!! It's not a sequel, which I still want, but it is a full length Half Life game!! My decade has been made.

I've missed this place. I hope this brings the old gang back.

I'm so old having waited this long for a Half-Life game that I'm excited to use VR to tidy up the messy shelves near the end of the trailer.

I'm so old having waited this long for a Half-Life game that I'm not even going to be getting a compatible VR system. My daughter has absolutely insisted that we get PSVR, so that is what I've ordered 😧

I guess I'll have to treat myself to a PC upgrade and a decent headset in a few months :grumpy:

(But also I'm so old that I never have any money because kids).

I'm so old that I'm genuinely worried they will put vent crawling into this Half-Life game, because my knees have been ****ed for a while now.

Hi John! I've done some quick calculations to determine when HL3 will be released based on historical data:

HL1 = 2 years
HL1 -> HL2 = 6 years
HL2:Ep2 -> HL:A = 2x6 (carry the VT) = 12 years
HL:A -> HL3 = 2x6x12 = 144 years

So we could see Half-Life 3 as soon as 2164!

You're gonna make it, Glenn. We'll all make it, joints be damned.
Probably half of hl2.netters will get stuck and forever be trying to crawl through a vent. We will succumb to starvation on our living room floors, gripped in the claustrophobic nightmare of non-existant ventilation shafts, knees blown out, yelling out to Gordon Freeman to come save us. Our families will return home to find us on the floor tangled in wires, our pets laying dead next to us while we mutter meekly our final words: "damn invisible headcrabs"
