The final boss fight is basically Alyx in Xen solving a laser puzzle to close of the portal through which The Vault is going to Earth, it's like halfway there when the portal collapses so epic explosion scene. This is 100% some time-travel bullshit as Alyx is stopping this from happening before it happens.

Alyx says she wants the Combine off Earth, but the G-Man explains that’s too big an ask.

Then Alyx is guided by G-Man to wake up Adolf Hitler who's encased in cryptonite goo on Mars in a building which is like a Pyramid but the deeper you go it turns into this weird brutalist something overtaken by kikes.

Fuckin kino overload right dere heh

They did a metric shitton of retconning especially in regards to the sound design apparently - Especially the overwatch radio chatter and most of the combine ambience/all the synths in general

I don't really like the nu VA for alyx either, she sounds quite bitchy which creates a kind of canonical dissonance in regards to earlier incarnations of alyx imo

Still it looks very promising for what it is/a VR-only title heh

Sum nibba on /v/ summarized it as "Take away the VR gimmick and it's basically just a shittier version of episode one" heh

It really does look awfully tech demo themepark-ish i have to say, in 2kliksphilip's gameplay you can see 90% of the non-essential map props he tries to interact with won't respond or just barely respond and even then merely in a physically incorrect manner

Once i get the confirmation in that this won't work in w7 at all i'll just find the best 1080p walkthru there is and pop sum kratom heh

Least they could have done was confirming laidlaw's dyson sphere as canon, they really ought to flesh the combine backstory out a little more imo

See >>3518

From wht i've seen so far of the game it doesn't really look like a 100% faithful entry into the franchise at all, i can live w/the numerous changes in sound design i guess but the music especially is extremely different from earlier HL titles - Orchestral arrangements had never been a thing in Half-Life but after the train crash thing there's one playing too for example, also the music in the beginning is not nearly as subtle/creepy as the first track that plays in the beginning of HL2 when u first enter the plaza, it kind of just drops you right smack in the middle of this "COMBINE BAD" setpiece which causes a lot of the lovecraftian cosmic horror-type mystique to be lost imo.

Also as can be seen in the datamined 2D mode they worked on a non-VR version at least at some point but i guess headset sales were moar important for dem
