This must be a lead-up to the Steambox's release.

Or more likely Steam came out for Linux recently and they want people to have cheap games to buy...

If you have a Bootcamp partition you're better off playing the free Black Mesa, IMO.

You could not because it's super scary and you'll never be able to finish it...

Scarier than Clive Barker's Undying? It kind of reminds me of that in terms of there being a deep, dark family secret, sussed out in a deep, dark house.

Never played Undying. But the Penumbra and Amnesia games... don't play them when it's dark.

Too late! I've been crawling around in that damn ventilation shaft! They jack with your vision by shrinking and growing it, and having your peripheral vision blacken without warning. And the sounds! Dear God, such sounds!
