    I must inform you, Half-Life: Blue Shift already exists.

    I mean, they had a right to be. They were releasing the only Half Life game in years as a VR only exclusive and behind a medium sized paywall. The reason they developed the trailer was to sell it to a non-vr audience, which worked. They had rightful reason to be scared after Artifact and how cocky they were with it.

    I think that's a bit of a stretch to say they had reason to be scared, Artifact had a bad reception from the start whereas fans have been crying out for a Half-Life game for a decade. They played their best card by using Half-Life, they knew this.

    I know, but this is valve, they can make a sequel to that since it'll only be two games with Barney as the MC.

    if they're re-using hl:a assets...

    Half Life: Laszlo


    nah but seriously either barney or some random resistance guy/girl would be what i expect

    barney would give so much lore and info on how civil protection/the combine works from the inside though so personally hoping for that

    Question is, would an HL2 game focused around Barney be Half-Life 2: Blue Shift or Half-Life 2: Opposing Force

    After all, civil protection IS the opposing force in that era...
    Merged:
    Or is Half-Life 2: Opposing Force a game about Adrian Shephard being transhumanized into Overwatch.........

    Imagine the world where the first full VR valve title was a bizarre DOTA spinoff...

    Had the same issue, spent a few days dealing with parcelforce. I was lucky that I could buy it with steam wallet funds by selling some old TF2 and CSGO items that appreciated in value.

    And here I was thinking I had good fortune buying the Resident Evil 2 remake with 'recouped' funds.
