I don’t think anyone bitching about the Steam Controller actually read the fucking announcement.
haha wow ppl are actually mad that it wasn’t half-life 3?
The whole thing was about Steam from the beginning what the fuck were you expecting?
For no reason the shit keeps crashing whenever I load it up. Won’t even load the main menu. I just want to find my save files so i can uninstall it and reinstall. Anyone know where that shit is? Search on windows 7 sucks ass apparently.
Man eeverone is posting such neat pictures from the Sims 3
I should get the Sims 3
… When did this happen????
Haha so today in speech class our teach was like “HAHA IMPROMPTU SPEECH TIME” And she throws the promt up on the board:
”___ is the best ___ EVER!!”
"Alright, you got five minutes to jot down a quick outline and then we’re presenting"
Only thing I could think of was Valve. Valvevalvevalve. Best game developer of all time.
So I went to work and barely finished scratching down my outline before we started presenting. The first several people went. Wow their outlines were really short…
"Best show because A, B, C, conclusion."
I started getting nervous. I wrote down a lot more than that. Oh well I’mma jsut stick with it. Each presentation ended with claps from the class and the teacher callign out the next number.
I go up there and basically gush about how amazing Valve and Gabe are. Stutter horribly and shaking like a leaf. I thought I was getting better at this public speaking thing? Why so nervous? I go on about how they updated a game for free for 5+ years, the CEO bought pizza for fans protesting outside the office, how a brand new employee was told his job description was to go home and recover from cancer, how Steam is an amazing platform for independent developers and how there is no office hierarchy and how everyone works together at the same level.
I sat down among the claps and the teacher a couple rows back goes, “Wow how did you know so much about that?”
"I love them!"
"They sound like an amazing company. A great place to work"
And thus I fangirled all over the fucking place and impressed my professor.
Steam Greenlight is a new system that enlists the community’s help in picking some of the next games to be released on Steam. Developers post information, screenshots, and videos for their game and seek a critical mass of community support in order to get selected for distribution. Steam Greenlight also helps developers get feedback from potential customers and start creating an active community around their game as early in the development process as they like.
