I'm always down for stuff like The Warriors and killer7, personally.

Agreed. I've encountered my fair share of problems with Steam, and I'm wondering how many bugs will go unnoticed during the SteamOS beta testing phase. Imagine all the issues that could stem from the game streaming feature alone...

Isn't SteamOS open-source? There'll probably be a fairly large community of people fixing the worst of the bugs that Valve doesnt catch themselves.

All programs are gonna have bugs man, nobody is perfect.
I'm not going to use an OS that isn't reliable though.
When you find the perfect operating system, please let me know. I've had few problems with Steam and I have no reason to expect the OS to be different.

Linux is also open-source, that doesn't make it any easier to use.

Started playing the original Shadow Warrior. This game may not as refined as a shooter as say, Hexen, but it's still very much enjoyable. The humor's also great.

Playing SW:TOR again. Say what you want about the customer service (it's shit), I'm enjoying myself again.

Of course, I know Alderaan and Tattooine are going to be a bore.

That's neat, but how would Wii games handle waggle off-screen anyway?
