The valve demos start today.
Best I can do. We'll see real pictures today.
I don't know what their ideas behind it are. They've been silent for a year or so.
It seems though that the analog stick is better for certain types of movement than a trackapd even though you could emulate any kind of *-pad on a trackpad.
Two trackpads for ambidexterity I guess.
Ah, that. Who knows, they really might just port it.
At this point DOTA2 already runs on some kind of version of Source 2 so they'll port it completely I guess. For TF2 the same. These games seem unlikely to get a sequel so fast.
I assume L4D3 will be a thing.

Seems like they're cheapo SteamOS boxes which are just good for streaming because of they don't have the power to process games on their own. Could probably install anything on them.
This page has to go live today.
You're both wrong.
They won't release new games, or rather squeals.
This guy has it.
It makes more sense for them to make a game, thus that is more money, but you need to remember people buy hats, keys, crates off the market that goes to their wallet. They only need to keep the community happy.
They do this by providing updates, as Portal 2, L4D2, CS:GO, Tf2 have workshop, they have a seemingly never ending stream of content, this means we will never see these games die unless a really popular competitor comes along.
This can be see by looking how many people still play CS 1.6 or CS:S
>You're both wrong.
But I said the same as you.
L4D2 for example doesn't really make much money though, does it? It doesn't have a store or anything like that as TF2 and DOTA2 have.
Valve just said yesterday that they'd use Vulkan for _future Valve games_.
>Valve and the other Khronos members are working hard to ensure that this high-performance graphics interface is made available as widely as possible and we view it as a critical component of SteamOS and future Valve games
And then there's the leaks. So it wouldn't surprise me to see a L4D3 in the future.
Yes, that's just a in-home streaming that works with every steam client. I mean the program. Is free since the steam client is free.
This is a physical device. A little computer to accept streams from anywhere in your network to display it on a TV or such. Like I said before, probably just a small Steam Machine.
Well then, I just want all you guys to know I fucking called it.
no innovations confirmed except for some gimmick vr shit
what happened to the days of 3D renderer innovation
>pretty shaders and water
>prop based physics system
>promising facial expressions
these were all announced with the engine, is Source 2 just a free rehashed version of source assets?
Honestly if they wanted to make a TF3 I would not be surprised if they tried to import items from TF2 so that inventories would port over without much issue. That is if they want to avoid completely destroying the heart of the Valve economy.
But with that said, many people are considering CS:GO to be the unofficial "TF3" now.
Yeah, I could see them carrying over inventories if they do sequels.
Whether it's CS:GO, L4D2 or TF2, I'd be interested to see Source 2 ports just for shiny new graphics and shit if not outright new games.
