Last Week In Video Games

Oh, hello! How are you today? That's good. Well, the renovations in my basement have been completed so now I can actually relax for the foreseeable future. I am looking forward to it because I'm behind in some TV Shows and Video Games and I am really looking forward to some couch potato time. But, before i get to that I am gonna let you know what happened last week in the world of video games.

To be honest, it was a pretty quiet week. No one really talked about anything. Oh wait, there was this rumour about Valve releasing a console, PC thingy. The idea is to release a console sized device that will replace your personal computer and last long enough to play most current and future PC games. But there's your problem. PC Gaming has been about pushing the envelope to make the best graphics possible. This leads to people having to shell out hundreds of dollars every time a new game is released just to enjoy the game as it was meant to be. Most people are unable to do this so they keep playing with a system for as long as possible until it becomes financially safe to upgrade.

I'm guessing that people who purchase the Steam Box (or whatever it will be called) will love the hell out of it initially but then a game will come along that won't be able to run on the device which will make owners replace it. It's not a bad idea because that's what consoles have been since forever. The current generation of video gaming is great until the next one comes out. PC games don't really have generations, just timelines. Games that came out in 2009 and nowhere near the games that came out in 2011. Plus, the idea of tailoring PC games to work with a specific device is against what PC Gaming is all about. Not really sure how this is going to work, but I'm sure this is how people felt when Steam was first announced.

Other than that the gaming world was pretty quiet. We don't even have PS Vita numbers to see how many units were sold so far. Oh well. Hopefully I'll have more for you guys next week.
