posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1801 days, 14 hours, 30 minutes ago
Monday, November 12, 2012 9:18:38 AM GMT

Valve's Gabe Newell says, according to the press release, that "partnering with Nexon will allow us to deliver Dota 2 to a massive audie... (more)

The update also brings with it two new features, the first of which replaces the current competitive matchmaking system, "join in progress," with a queued matchmaking mode. The second feature allows players who disconnect from a match to rejoin or abandon it from the main menu, with abandonment resulting in a cooldown period during which the player can't enter another competitive match.

NYT: EA tried to buy Valve

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1863 days, 15 hours, 22 minutes ago
Tuesday, September 11, 2012 8:27:00 AM GMT
EA has tried "over the years" to buy out Valve, the New York Times reports. These talks, had they ever reached negotiation, would have valued Valve at "well over $1 billion," NYT says, which is most likely a ridiculous understatement. (more)

Between imaginary cakes, talking potatoes and combustible lemons, you might think Portal couldn't get any stranger. Well, it could have gotten stranger – even stranger than Cave Johnson trapped in a computer – as Valve writer Eric Wolpaw revealed during a PAX panel. Wolpaw told the audience that, originally, Chell was going to marry a turret during Portal 2. (more)

Wednesday, August 29, 2012 5:44:57 AM GMT
At a certain point, developer Valve became the new Capcom and Counter-Strike became its Street Fighter 2.

Review: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1880 days, 16 hours, 26 minutes ago
Saturday, August 25, 2012 7:22:45 AM GMT
In sixth grade, I would wake up for school at 5:30 AM, but then I started getting up at 4:30 just to get a couple rounds in before class. Call it dedication or a sickening obsession, but I was hooked on CS (nevermind my neighbor who broke into my house to play while I slept!) It was more than a game.

It is and remains a standout multiplayer shooter that paved the way for things to come with Call... (more)

On tonight's episode of GTTV, Valve's Gabe Newell revealed that a beta for Big Picture mode would launch "soon." Big Picture mode, first announced in early 2011, will allow gamers to hook up their PC or Mac to their living room television – well, okay, it doesn't have to be in your living room, just wherever you've got a TV.
