Half-Life: Alyx is set to release in March this year, and while we don't yet know what exactly is happening with Linux support it's still an exciting time. It's a VR exclusive game, so you need VR hardware.

As a quick reminder, Half-Life: Alyx is set between the events of Half-Life and Half-Life 2 as you follow Alyx Vance, as one of the founders of a fledgling resistance trying to push back against a vicious alien race known as the Combine.

Ahead of the release the voice actor for the mysterious G-Man, Mike Shapiro, posted a rather cryptic and slightly chilling video on Twitter (source):

In case you have issues watching, he says:

Should old acquaintances be forgot, well, after so much…time some things can prove difficult to remember. See you in the new year, and do prepare for consequences hm? Mhm.

Are you excited for Half-Life: Alyx, has it already convinced you to buy some VR hardware? Certainly the most compelling reason yet for me.

So, I kind of wonder how many people that think VR is going to be a failed fad say that because of how 3D movies stopped being a thing. (Even though they are still a thing, but it is hard to find 3D TVs anymore, or in the US, 3D movies on bluray.)
VR for once is pretty much here to stay and it will only get better once more software and better hardware comes out to push it.

VR will be here to stay, but I really don't think it will ever become anything but a niche product. There are too many unsolved problems. I for one don't need a device that is guaranteed to make me barf after a few minutes of wearing it. Not that these things are comfortable to wear in the first place. And it's usable only for a small subset of games, anyway.

VR is so different from just staring at a stereoscopic display.

Don't they sell e.g. Star Wars as 3D?

Yeah, it's just people compare it to 3D, in that it'll just fade away like that did.
No idea, I just buy the Marvel movies in 3D, Star Wars is dead to me after the garbage that was the Last Jedi...
