ZOTAC NEN Steam Machine packs an i5 Skylake and GTX 960

Valve has made some interesting moves over the last few years, first announcing their own Linux-based OS specifically tailored for gaming, and then stepping into the hardware business. So far, they have only released a controller, and a streaming box, but they have started partnering with a few different companies to make “Steam Machines.” These are small, yet powerful boxes that run their special SteamOS, and give you more of a console-like experience. Today, ZOTAC has shown off their first Steam Machine, dubbed the ZOTAC NEN.

You only get One Life in this new FPS

You only get One Life in this new FPS

The formula for an FPS game is pretty simple. You run around, shoot enemies, die, respawn. Rinse and repeat until the match is done. Right? Well, a new game is looking to change up that formula ever so slightly. The aptly-named title One Life (currently on Steam Greenlight) aims to give players one chance to play their game. Should you die, you will be forever locked out of the game.

You already have a SteamOS Machine at home: here’s how

You already have a SteamOS Machine at home: here’s how

Don't bother going out and buying a several thousand-dollar Steam Machine, Valve says you already have one at home. Requirements for installing SteamOS on the computer you already have are relatively low - just so long as you've been upgrading over the past couple of years. Installing and customizing SteamOS will require that your computer be wiped out - but once you do that, you'll be ready to roll. In other words: the Steam Machine you have at home isn't going to be your main desktop - it'll need to be a machine you don't use that often.

SteamBoy re-named “SMACH Zero”, detailed for release

SteamBoy re-named “SMACH Zero”, detailed for release

Before today the device now known as "SMACH Zero" was far more recognizably called the "SteamBoy". Of course the company Smach Zero more than likely ran into some early legal trouble (or sensed trouble on the horizon) with such a name, so it's been changed to SMACH Zero. This device is a handheld gaming device that runs Valve's SteamOS. That means games from your Steam account accessible on a handheld mobile device.

HTC Vive World Tour lets you see things for yourself

To see is to believe. Cliché perhaps, but nowhere is it more applicable than in the now revived virtual reality industry.
