That's cool! :) PC always finds a way.

 

First thought of course is how safe it is. But if it proven to be safe, then it's probable we'll end up with a unified lau cher that'sore user-friendly, faster, and prettier than anything Valve or Ubi or whichever big publisher can come up with.

It looks like the tide is starting to turn against The GabeN's benign rulership:

Valve is not your friend, and Steam is not healthy for gaming

 

 

An interesting different viewpoint on Valve's bedrock business.

Looks like Fallout76 isn't coming to steam on launch... I can see why - why should Steam get a 30% cut? Its going to be interesting to see what happens in the PC arena. Quite liked having everything under one eco-system on the PC but its now getting very fragmented.. uPlay, Origiin, Epic and now Bethesda have their own launchers. Would actually be nice if everything went through Windows Store - although I can see the same issue in then MS want a cut. Think PC gaming is going to get messy again. Suppose by its nature it is but I can imagine in years to come it will be a nightmare various companies closing their servers etc - wish they would all club together and have a unified store or something.

 

This is a bit of an old quote, but discord released an update last month that acts as a universal launcher for origin, steam, uplay etc.

There was a thread discussing that on ResetEra, it wasn't complimentary to the article.

 

That's not to say Steam is great, of course, but it was an interesting read.

Stolen from Resetera

Shots of Valve's own VR headset. More interesting is this...

 

According to our independent sources this is in fact a Valve HMD. We’ve also heard the field of view will be 135 degrees with the Vive Pro resolution and it should come bundled with Knuckles controllers as well as a Half-Life based VR game.

Sigh. Way after the VR hype has died down, along comes Valve with its own headset. And of course with a Half Life game. I hope they go all the way and have the balls to call it Half Life 3!

 

But in all seriousness, if this is true then I hope at least one of you in this thread buys it, because I want to know what you make of that Half Life game.

One of the articles posted suggests that the game is a prequel.  I would be happy with that.  More HL1.5 than HL3.

Imagine that, after years and years of waiting we finally get another Half-Life title... only for it to be a prequel that literally no one asked for. :lol:

 

I'm sure it'll be decent mind you but fucking hell, the sheer audacity lol.
