Games Confirming the industry's worst-kept secret, Valve CEO Gabe Newell has confirmed Valve is working on its 'Steam Box', a Steam-powered HTPC geared towards console-like gaming. It'll most likely run Linux. "Well certainly our hardware will be a very controlled environment," he told Kotaku. "If you want more flexibility, you can always buy a more general purpose PC. For people who want a more turnkey solution, that's what some people are really gonna want for their living room." Steam has 50 million subscribers, so there's a market here. As a comparison: Xbox Live has 40 million subscribers.

You must be pretty slow since I can get through the spell lists in the games faster then the animations for them can play all without having to actually read them simply because I knew where the spells where in the list.

I have yet to see a game for any platform that lets you cast spells as fast as you can spam the button.

I used to play FFXI on PS2 and could easily beat the guys on custom gaming PCs. Yes, both PC and PS2 gamers where plaing on the same servers
