Chrome OS might soon run Steam games too

It is increasingly becoming evident that Google is grooming Chrome OS to be something like a dumping ground for anything and everything it can cram into what was originally a glorified Chrome web browser.

Serious Sam 4 is seriously delayed for consoles because of Stadia

Game streaming services like Google's Stadia are advertised to break down barriers that prevent gamers from playing their favorite titles the way they want.
