Gabe Newell, the president of Valve, has been answering a lot of emails lately and sharing some interesting information about his gaming tastes, the state of Valve, the future of VR and more.
Sometimes when shit gets real you gotta get out of your cave.
Gaben is a lost one
We don't really give a shit about VR Games Gabe...you know what we want Maybe hurry along before Epic gains more momentum
In a year all of Epic's exclusives will be on Steam and Epic still won't have any security or features.
Here's the thing. Valve doesn't care. They don't care about devs and they don't care about gamers. Devs have been pleading with Valve for years over visibility and the 70/30 split. Valve have done nothing. Steam piles up with shovelware, asset flips, and garbage. What does Valve do? They step back and take a reactive stance rather than a proactive one. They let it happen and fix it later if they have to. As much as people may hate the Epic store and the exclusivity, we need this. I've been saying for years that Valve has lost their way, and things have just gotten worse in that time. The only way to make Valve care and actually fix things is to hit them in their wallet. Because right now Valve doesn't care at all, and they just sit there printing money. Things are going to suck for a while on PC, but hopefully the sleeping giant wakes up sooner rather than later.
Speak for yourself, homie. I actually like VR and this is coming from a guy that hated kinect and motion controls. RE7 in VR is probably one the highest points in gaming immersion for me.
So you would rather have VR shit over L4D3, Portal 3, TF3 and Half Life 3, even over new IPs or cancelled ones like the Crossing? No...just no...don't believe that for a second.
@Foxtrot I’m just curious, have you played RE7 in VR? Because L4D3, Portal 3, and Half-Life 3 are all games that are in first person and would absolutely work in VR... just sayin’
Oh -Foxtrot, how far the mighty hath fallen.
What the hell are you talking about? I swear you make no sense most of the time
they aint working on any games are they even a dev team, why havn't the devs left. I wish they would sell there ip's
Hey Gabe, take note from Capcom. They took a successful franchise, put some time into it, gave the gamers what they wanted, and then made money and fans for future releases. Wash, rinse, repeat,...
hopefully Valve is also working on learning how to count to 3
Yeah, VR card games from Valve. Thats revolutionary.
Half life 3. VR only. Epic store exclusive
Oh Gaben I honestly don't believe your making any games anymore.
Hey Gabe, take some notes from Capcom. they really redeemed themselves in the past few years. Valve needs to follow suit and do the same thing.
L4D3 VR I would jump all over that
Gabe can go f**k himself
