Valve issued a video demonstrating its Steam Controller today. The game pad, which features two track pads in lieu of joysticks, is used for its series of Steam Machines, announced in September.

Looks good.

I have no idea what I watched. Someone holding a controller and moving their thumbs. I feel like someone from the 1800's who was brought to the future so see a demonstration of alien technology.

I'm a commercial pilot. The last time I tried a computer flight simulator, I couldn't figure out how to advance the throttles so I could take off. Does Steam have a controller that I can understand? Computer gaming goes completely over my head.

But I know how to build a kickass gaming computer!

Better PC flightsim rigs are not far from pro flightsims, maybe you should try finding such ;)
