Out Of Continues Episode 75 – a.k.a. The Gabe Newell Special

Looks like both of our ISPs conspired to cut me off with the Skype call this time around, and AT&T even disconnected me from the call once.  Just more egg on the broadband industry’s face that in the year 2013 a simple audio recording over the Internet still has to be an ordeal.  😛  Anyhoo, here’s the show.

…or for the YouTube-averse…  😀

I jokingly call this “The Gabe Newell Special” because the entire main discussion is based on Gabe Newell’s keynote speech from DICE this year, particularly the hardware part where he talks about emerging technologies that’ll help PC Gaming come back even more from the mess that it was in several years ago before Steam took off plus the mess PCs are in now

Since this show, I’ve played around with some primitive in-home streaming over my somewhat dated G Network.  I’m now curious what I’ll be able to do after upgrading to 802.11n on the cheap.  Hmmm….  🙂

Let’s just say that Gabe Newell is definitely a free-thinking maverick on this sort of stuff.  I was reading about all this “Death Of The PC” “Post PC” “PCmageddon” stuff and his speech made for a great counter to all of that.

Gabe Newell Has The Right Idea

Awhile back I ran into this keynote speech that Gabe Newell gave at the DICE Summit earlier this year.  It really got me rethinking some of the things like PC vs. Consoles and the whole “Post PC” thing after hearing some of his points. I can see what Stafa from Out Of Continues likes this guy so much.

Now I just have to get around to beating Portal and playing more Steam games.  🙂  I’ll definitely be doing more with this speech later on.  🙂
