When I can get up early enough to have it, I don't think there's any meal as satisfying as breakfast really.

The success of the SteamBox will be measured by how it affects the success of the Steam platform against its costs to Valve. How should they go about it? I'm not sure but Valve is a smart company and I'm 99.9% sure they certainly have a plan as to how.

Exactly, that was sort of my line of thinking. Making Half-Life 3 a Steam exclusive would be the ultimate marketing tactic to bring console-gamers onto Steam.

I don't think that makes a lot of sense. The Half-Life franchise is predominantly identified with PC gamers with the only massive exceptions being those console gamers who really attached to The Orange Box. Making Half-Life 3 a SteamBox exclusive would cause more outrage than sales from PC gamers too imo. Customers have invested a large stake in their rig and the majority of those customers will continue to do so unless SteamBox offers something that conventional towers never can.

You bought a console from your friend when you were 6?

Kids nowadays, huh.

We grow up so fast.

I'm not much of a retro gamer at all. I was born in '94 and spent a lot of my early gaming on a PC and didn't actually own a console until early 2000, when I bought a PlayStation from a friend. However, I know a number of GB's members are and so I thought I'd share this:

Not sure how hard it is due to my lack of retro video game knowledge but enjoy nonetheless!

@Galiant: Even after applying the fix? Sorry that it's not running as smoothly as I advertised on your rig. :(

@FlamingHobo: You can actually run Dungeon Keeper 2?

Yup. If you buy it through gog.com it comes with an update that pretty much makes the game run smooth as butter.

@AndrewB: Yeah, neither did I 'til about a week ago! Looking at the NeoGAF thread it looks like the option has been around for about six months now! The amount of games has never really been a problem for me so far. I'm rockin' 150+ games with no trouble.

@Ravenlight: Each to their own, the icons are alphabetical however.
