agreed. golly VR.

I've avoided mentioning just how much they've bent with the steam client lately, but this announcement just seems like.

Have money.

Don't have money?

Get Money.

Honestly, VR never appealed, but that G-man is Boss as golly.
just one little time change so a draft board in 1968 turns down the bribe to accept "bone spurs" and we are home-free.

This isn't the Half Life we've been waiting for all these years. It's a money grab for Valve. It's like they're saying "Our VR hardware isn't selling, lets throw the suckers a bone."

I don't like the new Steam client either.

SEVEN STEAMWEBHELPER PROCESSES

holy golly do I hate the new client. And if you kill the webhelpers, they instantly respawn.

I really want a ram governor in the process manager. Oh, you want seven processes? Each gets one mb of ram then.

I'm surprised they announced this far out, I thought the announcement was going to be the drop date, but it's not coming out until March.
