Valve, the company behind the Steam gaming platform, will be making an appearance at this year's E3 gaming event. The E3 is taking a form of a virtual trade event this year, which is standard for all of the previous events we had in the past, like Computex 2021. The special appearance this year will come from Valve. According to PC Gamer, Valve will have something to share, more specifically a "message regarding Steam". Usually, Valve doesn't make a lot of appearances at E3 and is not considered a regular there, so this year's E3 show will have the honor to host the company at the PC Gaming Show. This means that we are getting a possibly big announcement from Valve.

The current rumors are suggesting that the company wants to present the SteamPal, a Switch-like portable gaming console that aims to bring gaming on the go, powered by Valve. The exact details of what is to be presented will be unveiled on Sunday, June 13 at 2:30 PM PST / 5:30 PM EST and we will be sure to report about the happenings at E3, so stay tuned for more details.

If it can allow other game clients on a win 10 desktop, the likes of GPD, but at higher quality, it'd be nice.
So I can play Diablo 3 at work.

I think Gabe talked about it once, I could be wrong but it was something along the lines of, doesn't matter what they do for HL3 it simply won't be able to live up to the hype and it will prob effect reviews of it. I see what he means really, humans do have a bad habit of getting overly hyped about stuff and taking it out of context when it arrives. Take Biomutant for example, this game looks great, the combat is intuitive, but has horrible reviews. Yet every friend I have that played it said they like it.

I think peoples expectations are just weird, from a psychological perspective.

So check this out the @finalhours tweeted "THREE DAYS." and quickly deleted it the other day. Tyler McVicker tweeted about it here. If you haven't watched it then you need to, check it out here. Half-Life: Alyx is amazing I can't wait for more.
