I really hope this VR headset comes in at a reasonable price. I'm hopeful that it will, as other valve hardware has been reasonably priced and if it takes off, they'll sell a boatload of copies of HL3 ;). If it's not too expensive, I think this time I may jump in and buy one.

Speaking of virtual reality, rather than a new thread, check this out.

Very clever they managed to model all that. I'm not used to seeing pundits have sympathy with the ref/linesman ;).

Linesman Simulator 2019 :lol: .
