Happy holidays. Steam is down. We don’t know why. Could it be back up by the time this post goes live? Absolutely. But for now, rest assured that A) it’s not just you and B) Half-Life 3 is never coming out.
As we all wait for Valve to get their servers back up so we can spend more money on PC games we’ll never play, let us remember that we’re nearly at the one-year anniversary of the Steam Winter Fail.
