Beware of cheap knockoffs. Apparently there is somebody on Steam trying to sell a game that sounds similar but they misspelled "Alex" as "Alyx".

Well yes, the game is free. But after trying it, I can see why. It's just some amateur game made by an individual. Plays in a tiny window. It's comparable to the free online flash games that used to be popular. It's not a bad effort but I think most people will just find this a waste of time.

You'd think that virtually impossible in today's reality.

This is getting ridiculous! Applause

I'm still kind of in shock that a new Half Life was released. I'll need to get my hacked-Vive VR stuff actually working.

I have to admit, after all the hype about Alex, I was excited to try it out, and it doesn't even support my VR setup.

Even worse, it doesn't have much from the other Half-Life games in it.

The real showstopper was the fact that there was no HDMI. Come on, people, it's 2020 already!

Imagine being the kind of person complaining about something that is free. You literally have the choice of taking it or not.

For those interested, this Alex doesn't require VR. :-)
