Jean-Luc takes Potato Mode to the next level by turning the graphics of Half-Life: Alyx into mush and then experiencing them up close and personal in VR.
Here on Potato Mode, we take our favorite games and turn their graphics into absolute mush for your enjoyment. This week, we kick it up a notch by stepping into the world of VR with Half-Life: Alyx.
Alyx is without a doubt one of the most impressive-looking VR games to date, and returning to City 17 after all these years is a real treat, which makes it all the more hilarious when we completely ruin its graphics. It’s a real trip in particular for Jean-Luc who is experiencing the whole thing up close in virtual reality. Thankfully it didn’t make him sick!
If you’re curious about Half-Life: Alyx, you can check out our video where we tested the game on the four biggest VR headsets. Or watch Michael Higham’s review, where he gave the game a 9/10, saying, “Not only has Half-Life: Alyx made good on its shift to VR, it has elevated many of the aspects we’ve come to love about Half-Life games.”
