The International Game Developers Association asked its members where they want to work, and most said they'd like a job working for the Half-Life company.
I want to work at Valve more than I want to live in my tiny studio.
Ah, they just want help with Dota 2, I bet.
I bet it's awful there really. They only show us what they want us to see ;)
I would hate to be under such tight lock and key. I feel like Valve would have me shot if I tweeted the wrong thing.
nope not right now... wait can I telecommute and stay in where I'm at?
Why, just why? The company barely releases any games. They also don't seem to care to release the one game that most of their fans want either.
valve is the C.I.A of the gaming industry, i bet when they announce half life 3 itll be a pretty big deal, might even reach 100°f on the scale
I wonder how much those upcoming Steam Machines will hurt them.
I use SteamOS for gaming and I have to say it is very promising already. It is flexible compared to Windows and easy to develop for - you can even use Raspberry Pi .  http://www.raspberrypi.org/ There are many problems that has to be solved before it could gain any popularity. One of the biggest problem is OpenGL drivers. Open source drivers are going forward nicely  but they are not ready for OpenGL 4.4 yet. Proprietary driver from NVidia is very good but AMD has been struggling.  http://cgit.freedesktop.org... Personally I hope that OpenGL 4.5 / OpenGL NG will gain popularity among game developers and it has been nice to read that many game engines are going to have OpenGL renderer as well. There will be many types of Steam Machines so I think they could do quite fine, although first generation maybe not so much. Intel NUC and similar form factor machines will give relative good performance in a small size - DDR4 and Intel Broadwell are just behind the corner. Interesting times.
