Unfortunately my Index shipping estimation has actually grown from the date I ordered. And I was only a minute late. Oh well, gotta stick to Qust + Oculus Link, even though the latency is a bit of a nuisance.

I'm a few hours in...this game is absolutely amazing! To see striders and headcrabs to scale jumping at you, the environment, lighting, everything is top-notch. HL:Alyx alone is worth the $400+ to buy a VR headset.

Edit: You get so immersed in the game that you forget you're in VR sometimes. I've tried physically leaning on railings that aren't really there. Once I was laying on the floor crawling under a virtual desk just to see what it was like. Somehow I lined it up perfectly so when I hit my head on the leg of the virtual desk I hit the leg of my actual desk at the same time. Scared the crap out of me.

This looks amazing, if this is followed up with a Portal 3 or L4D3 then I guess my monitor upgrade plans/pot might have to switch to a HMD instead.

Do it!

Cosmos finally released with base stations. Should have been done like this the first time around.

L4D2 was incredible in 3D. It had a few niggles, but throwing a pipe bomb and then standing as close as you dare and watching the body parts fly was amazing lol.

I'm hopeful (and I have no reason to be doubtful) that Alyx is as good as it looks. Can't believe a website down rated it for releasing now FFS.
