Valve Reddit Interview

The WeAreA videogame developer AUA! - IAmA with Gabe Newell on Reddit is now online following an odd false start for the interview. The conversation with the Valve honcho includes assists from Erik Wolpaw, Erik Johnson, Ido Magal, and "Coomer" (we're thinking Greg, not Christen), with topics covering Linux support, possible Steam Music integration with other services, and even a reference to Half-Life 3 Ricochet 2: "When we announced our products years in advance in the past and then were really late delivering them, it was pretty painful for both us and the community," explains Gabe. "We'd rather not repeat that."

I still remember the jaw dropping abilities of Source when it was shown way back in 04.

Yeah, that loading screen every 30 seconds sure was spectacular.

I still don't get why everyone thought Source was the bomb's tits. It was the first (I think) to properly implement full physics, which was amazing, but in the end that was just HAVOK, so not really Source. It also was the first to do a great job at lipsyncing characters to what they were saying, which was incredibly immersive.

Other than that what was so impressive about it? I thought the Far Cry engine was a hundred times more impressive than Source. The entirety of Half Life 2 probably fit in one of Far Cry's bigger levels...
