Gabe Newell - Coming to a Concert Near You

Today we're proud to bring you the exclusive story which will change the future of the Half-Life series. Gabe Newell, managing director at Valve Software, has given us the scoop on his move from gaming to the music industry. Finishing up at Valve last week, Gabe has started touring full-time with his 3 piece folk-rock band, Left of the Dealer.

When asked about the change, Gabe let us know that "it wasn't because of any conflicts at Valve - they're a great team. And don't get me wrong, I love making games. But there's a ton of creativity I'm just not able to express unless I'm with my guitar."

I don't know if this is real or not, hence I put it under the Rumour category. If it is true then you know what say;

It ain't over till the fat bas$*&% sings. I'm only teasing ;)

I'm seriously sick of this guy. This dude is fat and he has such a big mouth. Granted, his company makes good video games but he is such a damn attention whore, its annoying as hell.

Don't get stuck in the doorway on the way out.

What to look forward to from Jabba(aka Gabe) as a musician:

Only knows one type of instrument
Constant whining that that instrument is no longer popular
Crying to everyone he is too lame to learn a new one

Audios retard, console developers are breathing a sigh of relief over not having to listen to yet another peecee developer crying about not being able to hand next gen console hardware development anymore.

I have never loved a company so much but hated their spokesperson so much either.

Every time this guy talks I just hope he chokes on a slice of pound cake to shut him up.

JsonHenry4074d ago

Lol, the more I posts I read I think it is universal - no one likes this guy.

then it explains why he's been so negative on so many topics during last year- burnout.
it's great to see someone get a chance to do what makes them really happy.

" do not make my life better, in fact it make it worse..."

"...Guitars : a waste of everybody's time.learning how to play guitar gives you no long-term benefits. There's nothing there that you're going to apply to anything else

i think someone bought him donuts today, so now hes expressing how he feels. don't believe him, it's the donuts that made him happy not the band. how do we know he can play the guitar? its donuts man, believe me. donuts ok. j/k hes still fat with a big mouth. FATA$$

If anything this is a loss to gamers while he likes flinging insults hes a position to fling them he has made great games and knows what hes talking about. Sucks that valve will no longer have him but lets see how future hls are without gabe.
