However, the second part of that quote is laughable; even if Valve was actually working on HL3, there is no way they'd make it Linux/SteamOS exclusive, that kills me that somebody actually wrote that. :D

Yeah that was a painful laugh, at Ars. They are now pulling shit out of thin air..? Thankfully the first few comments address this wild speculation.

Or maybe this will show that Valve/Steam/Gabe aren't up to the task of moving us off Windows. Is he ready to invest hundreds of millions of dollars to do it? I doubt it. I know that yesterday I said that if anyone could, Steam might do it, but now I'm not so sure they will, especially cosnidering that they're trying to shoe-horn in the 'living room & tv experience' at the same time. The PC side of their business has succeeded so far while rejecting the TV & living gamepad room until recently.

Error: please connect your gamepad before launching steam! Remember this is a fucking living room! Nothing gets done here.

4. Tim Cook says that tablet sales will pass PC sales by 2015. Sep 23, 2013, 16:37 LittleMe
 
I think that tablets will become PC's. Just that the tech is in transition now so the tablet cpu's are crippled/focused to save power.

Once the tech improves everyone will want to be compatible just like PC's are already. And maybe by then MS will fix their game and Windows will have an *optional* tablet UI mode.

We went through this in the 80's and 90's and that's why PC's are everywhere and not Amiga's or Atari ST's.. no? Proprietary tech doesn't last long. Then again, these tablets & phones are outdated soon anyway. I still think things will stabilize on x64 after 5-10 years.

Yeah the focus needs to be on PC desktop gaming firstly since that's exactly what Steam is best at right now. Once they have the desktop PC gaming nailed then they can go for the casual living room gamer. Small steps...

4. Re: SteamOS Announced Sep 23, 2013, 13:29 LittleMe
 
Awesome. Now they just need to fix the situation for closed source hardware drivers for Linux. Just make an icon on the desktop that when launched, installs it all automatically, or something like that!

Valve is in a good position to potentially make it happen. Specifically replacement for Windows for PC gaming! There's a long way to go from here though.

edit: yeah, "tv and living room" shows how they are interested more in the console-gaming experience. We saw Commodore try this and fail hard. Focus on PC gaming FIRST YOU IDIOTS.

4. Global Warming, Video Game Violence Deniers Roll Dice With Science. Sep 22, 2013, 13:34 LittleMe
 
The word deniers isn't scientific and neither is the article. The word deniers is used to associate them with holocaust deniers. It's also a sort of character assassination. Being skeptical IS science.

A big reason why there is so much consensus on anthropogenic global warming is because there is a LOT of money to say so. As in many, many billions every year. What happens to your scientific career if you come out skeptical about AGW? Your career is probably finished.

I guess personally I feel there is some AGW, but the issue has been blown way out of proportion and the greedy powers-that-be are scurrying to scam the world population on the most expensive con-job ever on AGW. There are much bigger issues looming over us, in my opinion.

1. Re: Standalone Project Reality 2 Announced Sep 22, 2013, 12:42 LittleMe
 
Awesome!! Lots of questions here.. Will it be completely free or will there be micro transations? Are they handling this as a commercial venture? Are they re-working the low quality net-code and poor in-game security that Crytek is known for? How will cheaters be detected and handled? Will it have something like Mumble to handle in-game voip? Are they hoping to do 4km maps also?

Btw, this press release needs to stress the PvP focus of the game. The press release currently comes across as 'yet another fps game' without that mention. But clearly PR is a cut above the rest for PvP as it is so very NOT casual in its gameplay.

Looking forward to learning more and seeing some alpha-footage!

edit: AAS is fun, but Insurgency is where PR really stands out. Hoping for an improved insurgency mode when possible!

Edit 2: Answer as to why it's free:
because in the CE SDK, the Terms say that you cant use it for commercial projcets, unless you purchase the license. and frankly, millions of ist whet the team has spare

2. No plans for GTA V on PS4, says Rockstar. Sep 18, 2013, 23:28 LittleMe
 
how a potential sixth instalment in the GTA series would look like on PS4.

Um, the headline is fail?? Reading the article it seems clear that Dan Houser was talking about GTA VI, not V. Move along, nothing to see here.

Maybe part of the reason for the delay is that we are getting a much better next-gen treatment for PC too...? We'll see.

How convenient they got exactly what they wanted to regulate our game playing. Get ready for our militarized police to start breaking down doors to rip away the controller from your ten year old. Then CPS will make sure you won't harm him/her any more!

Talk is cheap. Valve needs to start their own linux distro: Valve Linux or Steam Linux or something. Then they can tightly tune it for gaming. The writing on on the wall for Ubuntu is who is losing money.

I think its safe to say, "the damage is already well done", that they made plenty of money from the game in the maybe 10 years it lived.

Maybe it's a good thing for PC gaming in general. The market is more diversified now and there are good or even a few great alternatives to WoW.

Well since it's a PvE focused game, the missing campaign is a glaring omission. I've been yearning to play the big island and now I can go see it so... see ya!
