Steam - Steam Box - Steam OS... Valve taking over the world?

Post by MartyMcFly » Mon Jan 13, 2014 3:43 pm

So, Valve and Steam seem to be taking over the world of pc gaming. What do you think?


Steam OS: - http://store.steampowered.com/steamos/

Steam Box: - http://www.gamespot.com/videos/a-look-a ... 0-6416734/

Steam Controller - http://www.pcgamer.com/tag/steam-controller/

Seems a long way off when it was a patch delivery tool for counter-strike and DRM for Half-Life2.

I remember 10 years ago when Steam first came out "THIS IS SHIT AND IT WILL NEVER WORK".

Heh. Steam's an amazing content distribution network. Good for them expanding the business :)

Steam sales are the bomb, but so many games and so little time :lol:

Are you using the steam favourites window now? Because using the in-game one will never work first time!

In fairness, it really was shit considering you relied on it for replacing WON. This ancient gif really did provide an accurate representation :p.

Did anyone have the displeasure of using mplayer, and then after that was bought out; gamespy?

Bring back Kahn, that was awesome! http://www.descent2.com/kahn/
