Not one. Not two. But three.
Not one. Not two. But three.
In a chat with the press in Seattle earlier today, Valve boss Gabe Newell spoke about the effects President Trump’s (temporarily halted) travel ban would have on the company’s employees, along with its esports events.
Today was one of those occasions that comes once, maybe twice (but definitely not thrice) in a lifetime. Gabe Newell arose from his Scrooge McDuck-esque lake of knives and cash to conduct an AMA. Spoiler: he likes Portal 2 more than Half-Life, and despite appearances to the contrary, Valve still makes games.
Donald Trump? Let me tell you about Donald Trump. Did you know that Donald Trump only has ONE type of hat? Sad! No wonder Gabe Newell beat him on this week’s Forbes billionaire list.
Whether it’s called Half-Life: Episode 3 or just Half-Life 3, here’s a video put together by CrowbCat which collects interviews dating back as far as 2006 in which Valve boss Gabe Newell talks about a game that’s never actually coming out.
The Oculus Rift and HTC Vive aren’t just here for video games. They’re also here for fancy 3D sketches that look like cartoons come to life.
James “2GD” Harding, an esports personality who was fired from his role as host of the Dota 2 Shanghai Major and renounced by Gabe Newell, has posted his explanation of the events that led to his removal from the event.
Not content with Valve’s own timetable for rolling out special events, a bunch of Team Fortress 2 fans have joined forces to make their own, called Workshop Wonderland. It’s pretty neat, but the highlight for me is this glorious Heavy x Gabe Newell pic.
To say that some people are “upset” about Steam’s recent decision to allow users to charge for mods would be like saying that the ocean is “wet” or that Konami is “clueless.” So when Gabe Newell went on Reddit to talk about it, things got a little... heated.
You think you can take on Gabe Newell? Good luck!
Some people who make (or made) video games are dirt poor. Others, however, could start campfires using $100 bills. In this post, we're looking at the latter.
You might remember that roguelike FPS Paranautical Activity was yanked—with a large cane of plus 12 unceremoniousness—from Steam after its developer threatened to kill Valve head Gabe Newell. Now, amazingly, it's back. I imagine it helps that the dev in question is no longer involved.
When you have an issue on Steam, you typically send in a report, which Steam Support has to deal with. But one Steam user decided to take their problem to the man in charge of Steam itself, Gabe Newell. And amazingly, Gabe actually took time out of his day to fix the problem.
If you're a developer selling a game on Steam, it's probably not the best idea in the world to tweet a death threat to the guy who owns Steam.
For many people, touring a video game studio is like taking a trip to nerd heaven. Valve let the winners of its 2013 Saxxy Awards film contest peek behind the curtain in this way. The resulting photo gallery that was recently posted online makes the place look about as whacky as you'd expect the company that's made…
We all imagined that special Valve event at a future E3 where all the magic happens and we all go home satisfied. OniNeoxes chose a cute, but unorthodox way to show his version of Valve's presser with Tomodachi Life and Nintendo Miis.
I doubt that this Gabe Newell shield gives any statistical benefit, but seeing Gabe's face protecting you in-game must give you some sort of confidence/performance boost in Dark Souls II, right?
The wonderful folks at Giant Bomb got their hands on a copy of Crawl, which lets you explore a dungeon where your friends are the monsters. It looks like the game's sense of humor is already living up to its excellent trailer.
