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.

There is always something wrong with most indie games. It's either they screw up on the story, the game itself is a casual puzzle/brawler(anything casual has issues with drawing you in) or the graphics are pixelated for the sake of being pixelated.

Indie games have gone down hill lately. Gameplay and stories get hit the hardest... Exceptions get through though.

But that is what we should expect with the market being open to more and more people. The average quality drops...
