Steam's definitely coming to Mac -- and maybe Valve's first-party games too!

Over the last few days Valve has been playing us for a bunch of game-horny nerds. First there was a fantastically-obfuscated hint that the next Portal or Half Life title might be announced at GDC on March 11th -- and now, it looks like Steam has been confirmed for the Mac.

Even if you're not a gamer, head over to MacRumours and admire Valve's teasing artistic genius. Basically, Valve sent six Apple/Valve-franchise mashups to the main Mac enthusiast blogs -- and that's it. No press release, no information -- just an image and a single sentence: "In anticipation of an upcoming announcement from Valve". The announcement will almost certainly be at the Game Developers Conference, which starts March 9th.

There's one question on everyone's mind though: is this just Steam for Mac, or are we going to see Half Life, Portal, Team Fortress and Left 4 Dead on the Mac?! Damnit, I'm trying to retain an iota of steady ambivalence, but I just can't do it. Sorry.

WHO CARES ABOUT MAC NEWS? GIVE ME PORTAL 2!
