Ever since Valve announced SteamOS and Steam Machines there have been two Steam Machines that were shown the most. They were the Alienware Steam Machine and Zotac’s NEN SN970. Not that long ago we took a look at the Alienware unit, and now we have the NEN SN970 to review. This unit is part of Zotac’s extremely popular ZBOX line of mini PCs. Under the hood you have an Intel Core i5-6400T processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960, 8GB of memory, and a 1TB 2.5“ SATA hard drive. Like all Steam Machine’s the NEN SN970 will ship with SteamOS pre-installed and an official Steam Controller. This will bring gaming into the living room and you’ll have the massive Steam library of games to choose from, which has more games than either of the two major consoles. Let’s get to gaming and see what the NEN SN970 is all about!
Half-Life 2: Episode 2 was released back in October of 2007 and since then many Half-Life 2 fans have wanted subsequent episodes to be released, but as you know that never happened. Episode 3 of course was canceled, but did you know that there was actually an Episode 4 in development as well?

The term Steam Machine is something we’ve been hearing for a while now, but the actual real Steam Machines are only coming out now. A Steam Machine is meant to bridge the gap between a console gamer and traditional PC gamer. It brings the Steam experience and Steam’s vast library of games to the living room. Even if you are a traditional PC gamer there are times you just want to sit in front of the TV and play some games. Many people have already done this by building their own HTPC system, but these are bulky and more often than not underpowered. Steam Machines are designed to be smaller than most current-generation consoles, which means you can easily add them to your home theater setup. A true Steam Machine is powered by SteamOS and comes with an official Steam Controller. Today we are looking at Alienware’s Steam Machine (model: ASM100-2980BLK) which is powered by an Intel Core i3 processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX GPU with 2GB of memory, 8GB of DDR3 memory, and a 1 TB hard drive. Come on this adventure with us as we see what Alienware’s Steam Machine and the SteamOS is all about.

In the latest DOTA 2 update there is a new text file called hl3.txt, which inside makes mention of ziplines, squads, citizens, NPCs and VR.
