so me and @ShugoWah were wondering what happens in HL:Alyx if you run out of ammo but you have to shoot a padlock

in about 20 minutes of testing, i have both found how the game avoids that and immediately abused it to make an infinite ammo trick

like. what the fuck. half life is back and it was WORTH a 13 year wait, and more. what the fuck

I beat it about 10 hours ago and I was sweaty and shaky and breathless and on the verge of tears, and several times since then today just thinking about the ending has almost made me start crying again

Show thread

it's frankly revolutionary. I will never think about games the same way

hey sorry I haven't been tooting much but I just wanted to drop by and say that Half Life: Alyx is one of the best games I have ever played in my life

finding and supporting Powerful Theys will give me the life force required to survive 2020

Dorian fuckin rocks and I'm really glad I just happened to decide to get into Flamboyant yesterday youtube.com/watch?v=f1o67Fqftc

I think its biggest shortcoming is that it's based on screen information in the depth buffer so it has no awareness of volumetric lighting, but it's still a lot of fun to mess with

but! you can just turn off your game's native AO solution and use this, since they're both screenspace anyway

it's SO expensive, it immediately kicks me from 50% GPU usage to maxed out, haha

I was in Eulmore waiting for a party finder to fill and a Lalafell ran up to me and gave me a boiled egg

literally every other job mentor when you reconvene with them at lv80: "ah master Shugo Wah, please regale me with tales of your journey to another world"

Oboro: "yeah yeah that's cool w/e, move gay boy I'm bouta get it"
