Oh, so this is how they're going to re-re-re-re-re-embrace Windows as a gaming platform. Wow!

We remain committed to PC Gaming! We said so in this press release.

Defense Grid 2 I actually had to mute the narrators, too many and too annoying. I don't know what it was but it never grabbed me like the first game. I think I preferred the RPG lite mechanics in TD games like Defender's Quest.

This game is so over, logged in after being gone for 2 years, completely deserted.

Silly hats, jumping puzzles, and crappy 8bit graphics just don't fill the bill for most people.

8 bit graphics? Bwahaha. 2/10 sir.

What's the point? What market are they trying to capitalize on? Can I run my PC to my 1080p TV, open Big Picture mode and call it a Steam Machine now?

I just don't get it.

It's a bridging thing. A lot of people in their 30s and 40s play more games in the living room now and this gives them a way to choose a PC without building an HTPC or running a long HDMI cable. Desktops are going the way of the dodo in the consumer market so this is another way of ensuring people can get access Steam if their silly Mac/tablets/whatever can't.

People are looking at it like "Valve is trying to take on consoles" which I think is wrong. It's just a niche market idea and something that keeps them viable if Microsoft ever decides to screw everyone. These things will likely be almost built to order with very little inventory sitting around.

I'm actually more partial to Steam Link since I already have a pretty nice machine that can just stream stuff to another room. Of course this is a better solution if you need native playback and other people use the PC.

You'll be able to pay Microsoft $60 for a wireless adapter that should have come in the friggin box in the first place. Seriously who makes a wired controller in 2015?!

I only buy wired controllers.

I never know if you're kidding or not mr joker

IMO every controller should be wireless by default with the option to wire it to a USB port.

$15 is fine considering the quality of HBO shows. A la carte would be even more expensive which is why people asking for it always confuse me. These little mini subs from various providers are probably as close to it as we'll get for quite some time.

Battle.net?

I mean more like a total storefront and flow through platform for all Activision IP, not just Blizzard stuff. Like something for CoD and their kids crap as well.

To op's response one thing I'd like clarification on is, if you make a game with Source 2, what happens if it Steam doesn't accept it? Can you then sell it elsewhere?

No one knows yet without seeing the licensing language itself or some further clarification from Valve.

EA forces company to make version of game that no one wants, it sells in disappointing numbers and EA closes studio. Deja Vu

Valve wants to make sure people don't use their engine and do an end run around paying any royalties so they tie it into Steam. No startup costs is actually a pretty good deal, its all back end. Plenty of options for people don't think its fair and they can publish on Steam on their own terms later using the engine of their choice like many have in the past.

Activision and Ubisoft must have plans to start a Steam competitor.

Ubisoft already has with uPlay, no one else wants to use it though. Activision on the other hand surprises me, you would figure they would be first to try with all of Koticks talk about subscription services on consoles and yadda yadda but nothing so far.

Motion sickness aside, all of the positive GDC reports about the HTC/Valve Vive thing are very encouraging for VR.

It's hard to take a real vacation unless I want to take a break from beautiful ocean views and nearly perfect weather.
