    So I've been playing a lot of Team Fortress 2 lately (though recently it's crashing like fuck). Been wanting to get some keys + wrap to pay for a Voodoo Juju.

    Also, hello you lot.

    Borderlands 2 is 30 bucks, but I don't know if I want that when I still have to beat the first game, and I haven't even touched Fallout 3 since I bought it.

    Goddamn Steam sales.

    You probably did better than me.

    I got Jet Set Radio, Borderlands, Batman: Arkham City, Darksiders II, Sanctum, Knights of the Old Republic, Sonic Adventure 2(Not on sale, sadly), and Bastion for 60 dollars. Only thing I'm pissed about is that I jumped the gun too early for Bastion

    I ended up gifting out some stuff to random people, traded my Strange Grenade Launcher for The Walking Dead, and a friend gifted me Hitman: Blood Money.
    I'm kind of upset that I missed the Thief collection sale, and that I couldn't get Lego Batman, but I'll live.
    Still, pretty good sale, for what it was.

    ****, I forgot about Jet Set Radio. Thankfully I still have money. Also, I did consider getting Sonic Adventure 2, but I already own a copy on GameCube, and ten bucks for a game I already own? [...]

    Gah, if my computer didn't suck, I might actually be able to play TF2 for once. :l

    Sigh, I guess CS: S will have to do for now. Is there like any great mods for CS (excluding Zombie and Deathrun, those are awesome)?

    I fixed the god-awful lag on my Star Wars Battlefront 2.
    I love -dxlevel80-low.
    Of course, now I'm even more torn for games than ever.

    Valve is really missing out on an opportunity if they don't call it the "GabeCube".

    Yeah, we get it. You don't like EA. Nobody does. That doesn't mean you should advocate murdering everybody that runs it. If you honestly think that would be a good idea, you probably shouldn't be playing video games in the first place.

    Where did you get those lego bats?

    Anyways, it's just that ever since i saw one of those "EA in a nutshell" videos, I've been angry like truck. I'll delete it. Anyways...

    On a related note, the Steam Community Market beta has started! Let's just hope scammers don't scram over to that too. :P

    I could go for a Valve console if they make more IPs like Half Life and Portal. Those franchises are god tier.

    Lets you buy items off people, and sell them, for Steam cash. Neat idea, at least. I picked up a can of black paint for >$4, which is probably more than I should have bothered, but less than it would actually have cost, so I'm happy either way.

    It'll have to have some third-party stuff on it; SteamBox couldn't really see amazing funding, I don't think, if there weren't any, because of the restricted number of IPs. Also Valve's long turnaround time (for lack of better word). I think if you put in a bunch of popular, cheap games on it, like Terraria or The Binding of Isaac, you'll do well, but the differences between it and a Steam PC with Big Picture or an HDMI cable will shrink. A lot.

    Their 'Seam Box' is just going to be a computer though, so you'll have the entire Steam library.

    Fair point, but I think that was the same as my old speculation when the idea was first presented, that it would basically be a PC with some limitations attached to it to mostly restrict it to Steam (e.g. a custom OS). I don't consider it a bad idea, though, because it would be a dedicated gaming machine with a huge inbuilt library if that's the approach taken (which is both the most logical and most obvious), but I kind of wonder if it'll be something that you can readily upgrade the hardware on, or if you'll have to buy a new machine every now and again because you'll need better performance.

    I honestly don't think it would even have a custom OS, it's probably just be Windows still. There are plenty of limits they can enforce through Windows. If it wasn't Windows then they'd lose out on compatibility with most of the games in their library, not to mention the amount of development time and dollars which would have to go into creating their own OS. Unless they can get devs to switch to Linux (please) then Windows is pretty well a sure thing.

    As for upgradeability it would be foolish to lock that down, and I don't consider Valve a foolish company.

    Actually, last I heard, they're going to Linux after getting frustrated with Windows 8.

    That's the plan, and as part of the beta I can say it actually works pretty well. But without other developers supporting it as well Linux will never become a replacement for Windows as a gaming operating system. Valve can't cause that themselves, everyone else needs to get on board as well. They do have a bit of sway though, Steam is a very good distribution platform.

    I'm playing Serious Sam 3 on Linux right now, and while it might not be near the framerate I can get in Windows it's leaps and bounds better than what Linux has been used to. The work Valve has done with Nvidia on the drivers really shows.

    The Windows 8 UI is not build to work with a Mouse.. which most Serious Desktop people use. During the "Developer Preview" I managed to give it a test run for some time, On a PC has some hardware issues that later died completely: http://www.evernote.com/shard/s9/sh/...0a65bc38139a71

    I have Windows 8, there are ways to avoid the Modern UI entirely. Stardock has a program called Start 8 which brings back a real start menu, and from that point you never need to set foot into a Modern UI app. However, I'm still back to Windows 7 after a month of Windows 8. It's just not quite ready for the switch yet, still too many things not 100% compatible.

    Given that Valve Time exists, it'll be on the 26th.

    Actually, I kind of wouldn't mind a post-Christmas sale, so that way folks could spend their new Steam gift cards/cash. Then again, I'd also like to see more items on the Community Market.
