Here’s a left-fielder for you on a Monday morning: Rumors have popped up from “sources in the know” about a possible Valve gobble-up by publisher/developer Bethesda Softworks.

Eurogamer reports that Zenimax Media, owners of Bethesda, are still on the acquisition trail after having picked up ID software earlier this Summer.

What could this mean for the makers of Half LifeElder Scrolls V: Freeman Edition? And more importantly, what could this mean for Steam?

While the rumors thus far are unsubstantiated — we’re expecting a solid “No Comment” or an “Ain’t gonna happen” from either company — they do present the current craze in the ever-shifting gaming landscape: if you can’t beat’em, eat’em up.
