So the bad news it: Valve Software still hasn’t announced anything regarding the release of the eagerly anticipated Half Life 3, forget Half Life 2: Episode 3. However, Half Life 2 has received Oculus Rift support in an announcement made on the VR tech’s forums by Valve programmer Joe Ludwig.

“This port is a bit more raw than [Team Fortress 2] was when it shipped, so we would appreciate hearing about any bugs you find. Just like in [Team Fortress 2], this mode is experimental, so we really want to hear what you think.

Some issues include the HUD being “dim and hard to read” and “zoom UI shows up in a quad in the middle of the screen instead of on the edges of the screen.”

Support for SteamPipe, a new content delivery system for the platform, has also been added. Half Life 2 joins Team Fortress 2 in supporting the VR headset, with titles like Portal and Left4Dead expected to follow.

    now that’s another strong reason for me to buy this, if the occulus rift does not make a commercial release in 2014, i will buy the dev kit..as far as Half-Life 3 is concerned, i remember the time when i finished Half-Life and waited for Half-Life 2 but what i saw at e3 made me realize that it was worth the wait…i believe that moment will be very intense when they will reveal it because something or the other IS happening.
