I have two children. One has just entered college and the other has exited. They were put them to bed and that's it. Furthermore, I have evidence from four generations worth of detailed family historical data wherein not a single child expired, or came to other noteworthy harm between being put to bed and waking, so personally, I don't think the monitoring regime you employ amounts to good parenting. But do carry on, I don't wish to stop you.

You have waited since 2007 for the next HL game, surely you can wait another day or two

I take the tone of your reply to be rather cheeky my friend. There's no need for that. I haven't criticised you or any other parent in any way. You asked me a straightforward question, I gave you a straightforward answer. Parenting doesn't have a one size fits all solution. We all can only do our best and where I can, I like to be aware how my little lady is doing.

It’s absolutely the case that some people can’t use VR. Like any accessibility issue, it’s a real shame and not one easily resolved. Completely understand any frustration therefore when games are VR-only.

It’s definitely also the case that when games are properly, fully designed for VR that can’t translate easily. The use of depth, motion and gestures can be essential to what a good VR game tries to achieve. Games like Moss or Astrobot would be severely lesser with the unique features of VR.

It’s a shame, but I reckon those two positions aren’t always going to be reconcilable

Delighted there's a new HL but sadly the VR aspect rules me out. I've nothing against VR but I don't have the set up. Sucks to miss out.

I guess there is always the possibility that a non-VR PC version could be released down the line. One half of me thinks surely Valve have given this serious thought considering how small the VR market actually is. Then the other half of me is thinking that Valve are looking to make a statement about the future of VR and will keep it solely to that platform.

Some more news coming out. Obviously not confirmed, but lets be honest, most likely on the button:

- Set between events of Half Life 1 and 2 as previously rumored.
- Gravity gun will be back, but... it wont be a gun. Shall be gravity gloves and you will be able to use Value's knuckles controller to control.
- First game using Source 2 engine.

i thought for years if valve want to promote VR just release a half life game on it .
I think its kind of rude how the game is called half life Alyx ,not half life 3.
Maybe in 10 years time there will be a pc game called half life 3 ,
that doe,s not require a vr headset.
So we may never get a real sequel to half life 2.
i wonder will portal 3 be released on vr too.
