Happy Birthday Gabe Newell



Today marks the famous Valve co-founder Gabe Newell’s birthday. Kudos to you Mr. Newell. As much as I complain about how much I want to play Half Life 2: Episode 3, I commend you for your involvement in not only one of my favorite games ever developed (Portal), but for taking the initiative and changing the PC landscape with Steam.

I never thought I would own a gaming PC and I certainly never envisioned owning over 100 digital game downloads. Here I am, I couldn’t be happier with my first PC build and it’s more than commonplace to own over 100 games on Steam. I love that Valve, like the honey badger, doesn’t give a fuck. They do what they want to do. The release what the want to release, in the way they want to, with the price they want to release it for. HOLLA!

Thanks Valve and Gabe Newell for being great!

    I, like many of the faithful, will light a few candles on my Gabe Newell shrine, and do the Episode 3 Rain Dance.
