No press allowed at the newly-announced Valve-hosted Steam Dev Days conference happening in Jan 15-16 in Seattle. For $95, game creators get to talk shop, check out Steam OS, prototype Steam Machines and more. But if they announce Half-Life 3 there (they won't), how will anyone know? (Twitter, probably).
Valve's Gabe Newell will be awarded an Academy Fellowship at the 2013 BAFTA Games Awards. Congrats, Gabe!
