Holy cow my RSS feed kind of blew up today so here we go...
First up Valve has just announced today Feburary 23 by Doug Lombardi and I'll give you all the press release here since it's short...
(from Valvetime.net)VALVE TO ANNOUNCE NEW HARDWARE PRODUCTS
Leading Entertainment Platform Surpasses 125 Million
February 23, 2015 - Valve will show a family of new Steam devices at next week's Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco, CA. Products being demonstrated at GDC include Steam Machines with the final Steam Controller, new living room devices, and a previously-unannounced SteamVR hardware system.
Developers and publishers interested in experiencing the new SteamVR hardware may request to schedule a GDC demo at www.steampowered.com/universe.
GDC 2015 will mark the 13th anniversary of Valve's first public announcement of Steam, which has since become the leading platform for PC, Mac, and Linux games and software.
In the last year, Steam added new services and features - including In-Home Streaming, Broadcasting, Music, and user created stores - as it grew to over 125 million active accounts worldwide.
Steam now offers 4500 games, with 400 million pieces of user-generated content contributed by members of the Steam Community.
Oh boy and a newer device for the Steam Machine will be reviled at GDC? Well will see since March 2nd is next week so I'll be keeping my eyes on GDC all next week.

Now since with the post of Valve's announcement on hardware for GDC but another announcement from EGX REZZED game conference that Chet Faliszek Valve's Writer will be doing a developer session on March 13 at 1:00 PM Tobacco Dock, London. The weird part about this is there is very little info on this session since this happens after GDC and this is one of the writers from Valve so this could be big or just got bigger.

Now in mod area we have two more mods and it's called Project: Blue Room (from moddb)A designed to measure skill and difficulty in a single-player game. It is a simple, short, single player game designed to test the player's abilities over a few levels. Also a 2014 mod called Twelve Absent Men (from moddb)The story centres around the main character (unnamed) who has been arrested for a crime, yet never told what the crime is. Over the course of the mod the character's history will be revealed, and it will be put to question whether he actually committed a crime at all.

Now let's get to the silly stuff for the rest of this blog...
First up Kotaku had a blog post on The Stanley Parable is a difficult game to categorize and it's an interested read since the game original a Half-Life 2 mod that turned indie that combines walking simulator and tons of satire.

This is awesome and well may piss off and have a drink of your own piss yeah I said it...Ok seriously someone on Kotaku had found a Steam user "disanim8or" that has created edible TF2 items he did Heavy Sandvich, Scout's Bonk, Medi-Kit Cake and just recently made edible Sniper Jarate and I'll link up all of his stuff but here is how to make Jarate...INGREDIENTS
Now, this edible jarate is actually lemonade (thank god) and you will need:
1.) 3-4 lemons
2.) 5 cups of cold water (warm water if you want it to be realistic) Dx
3.) 1/4 - 1 cup of sugarMAKING THE JARATE
So you made it this far without pee-ing in a jar! this is how you make the "jarate"
1.) squeeze all lemons into the jar
2.) pour the cup of sugar into the jar
3.) add the water
4.) stir it all together and voila, you have the most disgusting, uh i mean best item in game!
you can use this jarate to prank friends, or drink it with the holy mackrel! (that "how to make" guide will come soon, i promise!)
