Games "So, to summarise this buyer's guide to next gen consoles: don't." Yahtzee, as usual, nails it. I particularly like the apt description of how you used to buy a console because it had the specific games you wanted, whereas now it feels like you're buying a console because it's holding the games you want hostage.

What about Steam Box? It's been quite some time since the last rumours. Any news?

Right, you want to be able to sell used games or play at your friends house, or you know... actually own your games, Steam is the perfect solution ;)

What about Half-Life 2 Episode 3? Baby steps, Valve.

Zing! Hehe.
Seriously though, what the heck happened to Ep3? I just recently played Ep2 for the first time (slowpoke, I know) and I was rather surprised Ep3 wasn't out yet.

They're now calling Half Life 3. Although it continues to be vapourware as before.
