    My "what's on your mind" on Facebook :


    «Portal is free to download until may the 24th. If you don't have it already and still won't download it, you don't deserve to live»

    Does it now? I'm not so certain. It almost seems as if you get to keep Portal if you "buy" it (i.e. install it) before 24 May. Well, in any case we'll know more after that date.

    That's how I've interpreted it.
    It'll just go back to normal price after 24th.

    Just to be clear, the chance to download Portal ends on the 24th, right? As in, it won't disappear from my games list?

    That definately sounds like it's free to purchase so I expect it will stay in your games list.

    Also just letting Monkey Island or Telltale fans know that you can buy the latest monkey island and Sam and Max series for £20 http://store.steampowered.com/sub/4327/ Great price considering they are £25 each seperately. I'm buying it at the weekend!

    This is on a high end I7, 285 system, on a lower end system you could really struggle.

    Probably the reason there is no HL2 on the Mac yet.

    The Mac wont ever compete directly with the PC for performance on the same hardware until the driver support and development is there.

    All you need to do is look at the performance gains the PC gets from driver revision to driver revision to see what dedicating development time to performance orientated drivers can do.

    The Mac has never been a worthwhile investment for the VGA guys to invest in performance driver development. If this changes then the Mac could close the gap rather quickly however I doubt that this will happen.

    This.

    I am really excited about steam moving onto other platforms, partly from a selfish point of view that I want more choice, but also because I just love the idea of tech moving forwards.

    +1, it's been public a few days, these things are always ropey at first.

    I can't see Mac guys getting blueballs because they can only play at 98fps and not 153fps.

    If they cared that much about gaming they'd already be running a PC.
