    @Rogueywon

    That sounds too good to be true. I don't think there's such force in the universe that'll make Gaben to work on Half-Life 3

    How can an iPhone autocorrect Alyx and not 'announce'

    VR only?

    Luckily, Alyx is my most despised sidekick ever, meaning I don't have to care about this game either way.

    What about that little shit from Borderlands 2? I mean there is little to like from most of the characters in that game, but that fucking wee robot....

    @Joyless_Man much as I dislike most AI partners, that wasn't my problem with Alyx. It was about stealing my spotlight.

    You are telling me I have to use my gravity gun to make a bridge for this one sidekick I've never met before? Oh, now I have to handle the flashlight while she is shooting? Why do I even need her anyway? I'm Gordon Freeman! I've defeated the Xen aliens all on my own! You think I can't handle the Combine?

    Computer allies become commonplace in shooters eventually, so I just got used to it, but Half-Life 2 was among the first examples so I never forgot.

    @Malek86 Weird, I thought HL2 was one of the few shooters that did companions right (mostly) Alyx appeared only sparingly, most of the time you were by yourself.
    And she had enough scripted events and speech to make it feel she had a personality (not an easy feat considering the technology of the time) as well as help drive the story forward. I don't remember feeling like her lackey at any point either.

    It did feel Alyx got a bit too much exposure in ep 1 and 2 though.

    Those resistance fighters that followed you around in the last part of the main game, they were something else though...

    I'd just like an FPS that told a story in game like the HL series did. Doom 2016 was close but a very different game

    That'll be nice for the dozen or so people who still use VR.

    It's kind of amazing how Valve managed to get just about nobody excited with a new Half-Life announcement.

    Given how things are going, I expect Epic to announce a new Unreal game for mobile soon.

    Exactly, it'd be like if Blizzard announced a Diablo sequel for mobile only.

    The difference being that I don't expect Valve to also announce HL3 next year.

    Seriously speaking though, I don't even know what to expect. Valve haven't really made a game in 10 years, aside from that card one that failed hard. Who knows if they are still able to reach their old glory days. How many developers do they even have nowadays?

    If I had to take a guess, this might just be externally developed.

    They've actually made a reasonable amount of stuff over ten years, The Lab, Artifact, Dota 2, Dota Underworld, Counterstrike, Portal 2. They also bought those guys that did the adventure game I can't remember.

    Yep. Plus The Lab is brilliant, so I have high hopes Valve know what they're doing with VR games.

    Cue HL:Alyx turning out to be a wave-based shooter where you have to defend yourself against waves of incoming Antlions...

    There is rumors going around that In the Valley of Gods might have been quietly canceled, or at least put on hiatus. Apparently the lead devs have removed all references to the game from their Twitter bios.

    Maybe Campo Santo is making this new Alyx game?
