Gabe Newell

  1. J.J. Abrams in Talks With Valve About Half-Life and Portal Films

    In his continued attempts to control everything we love, today J.J. Abrams said he's in talks with Valve co-founder Gabe Newell about bringing Portal and Half-Life to the big screen. These talks are in the very early stages, and a lot can happen to derail the projects, but Abrams has said, "Both a Portal and Half-Life movie are things I want to see." Us too, Mr. Abrams. Us too.

    Fact From the Vapor of Nuance

    What were Gabe Newell, founder of game studio Valve, and J.J. Abrams, now for-better-or-for-worse the undisputed master of the two biggest science fiction franches in Hollywood history doing in the same room? They were delivering the keynote conversation of the D.I.C.E. Summit, an annual gathering of video game executives. What was the sentence the internet went crazy over?

  3. Here’s an Entire Hour of Valve’s Gabe Newell on Business, Economics, and Video Games [Video]

    Can Gabe Newell, of video game company Valve fame, do no wrong? The breathless way some fans speak of the company's products like Half-Life and Portal seems to indicate that they believe he can't. Even if you're not a fan of the various and sundry products that Newell's been associated with, Valve's structure as a company is fascinating: People just sort of decide on what to work on, and then they do it. Newell spoke recently in Texas at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs, and they recorded the whole fascinating thing. Check it out after the jump.

  4. Valve Boss Not Optimistic for Windows 8 “Catastrophe”

    It isn't a stretch to say Gabe Newell, head of Valve Software, is no fan of Microsoft's Windows 8. His company has been focusing on bringing their proprietary platform, Steam, to Linux partly because they see only doom and gloom in the future for the PC market. With the newest update, Newell fears that the open nature of the PC will be curtailed in favor of limiting competition from those outside Microsoft.

  5. Check Out This Half-Life 3 Gaben Poster And The Making Of

    Fans have been clamouring for Half-Life 3, or at least some information on the series, for a while now. Nothing has really changed on Valve's end so, unsurprisingly, nothing has really changed on the fan-end either. In addition to playing Half-Life 2 in solidarity, fans also have a tendency to create Gabe Newell (or Gaben, as he is often called) art. It's a something of a tradition. Here is a particularly majestic piece of a crowbar-weilding Gaben by Darren Geers. Expect it to accomplish precisely nothing on the Half-Life 3 front. Still, cool though. Check out the impressive time-lapse after the jump.

    After being rumored for years, Valve has revealed that they are indeed working to bring a native version of their popular game distribution platform Steam to Linux.

  7. What Will Gabe Newell Announce at This Year’s E3? [Video]

    If you're really hoping that head Valve honcho Gabe Newell is going to announce a third game in one of their more popular series at this year's E3, you obviously don't know that Valve can't count to three. YouTube user aekime needed to learn Flash, so aekime made this little animation as both an extremely accurate prediction of what Valve will do come this year's E3, and a way to, you know, learn Flash. Gaben approves.

  8. Report: Is Valve Working on a “Steam Box” Gaming Console?

    Late last night, The Verge posted an interesting article claiming that game developer and distributor Valve might be readying for a foray into the hardware business with a gaming console. Called a "Steam Box," the hypothetical set-top device would bring Valve's online game distribution system Steam to TVs similar to how the Roku and Boxee brought online streaming video into the living room. If true, such a device could drastically change the distinction between PC and console games.

  9. Personal Data May Have Been Accessed During November Steam Intrusion

    Steam, the online gaming distribution system we know and love, announced back in November that they'd been the victim of a security breach. At the time, it was reported that the hacker had accessed the Steam user database, but that no information appeared to have been compromised. However, the ongoing investigation seems to indicate that it might be worse than originally thought.

  10. Portal 2 Announces Preorder Availability with Valentine’s Day Video

    In a just-released promotional video, Valve makes a very convincing case that the best gift for wooing your sweetheart isn't a box of chocolates or an enormous diamond, but rather a preorder for Portal 2. Hold on: Portal 2 is available for preorder? And defying typical Valve time, that April 19th release date hasn't been cruelly delayed yet again? And Gabe Newell is looking really good lately? Verily, praise is due unto Saint Valentine for this trinity of modern-day miracles. (Portal 2 preorder page)
