Take it with a grain of salt, but damn, It would be shake the industry if Google actually bought Valve.

Hard to say if it'd be a good or bad thing...

Google has shown to be a pretty damned good company, but Valve is doing a hell of a job the way they are.

I just hope they don't screw with Steam too much.
