    Interesting, Clan Wolf, I often feel like my own reports, not just of griefing and hacking, but crude avatars and the like, are quite meaningless and don't add up to anything in the grand scheme.

    Valve and Microsoft are Working to Standardize VR APIs

    Yeah, and what a reconciliation it is, I'm enormously happy and assured to hear they have such a partnership in place. Best news I could hope for on that front, to be honest... Now if only there was something upcoming about a certain Half-Life.

    Valve announces "The International" Dota 2 Tournament- $1 Million Prize

    I know, and like, this all just came out of nowhere. Suddenly a surge of activity after a lot of silence. Quite a surprise, quite energetic... QUITE AWESOME! Mate, they are: "Live Worldwide Video Broadcast In Four Languages - Chinese, English, German, Russian"

    John Patrick Lowrie Believes Dota 2 Coming This Autumn

    Yeah, about how often one falls when taking leaps of faith. And how much one wishes it upon others. It's the next biggest thing since HL2.

    Meet The Medic Goes Behind The Scenes, Under The Gown

    Half-Life 1 - Closed Caption

    I do believe I say you may be referring to this link, old chap: Is that the same fellow? Also, I'm sure this link may come in handy for such a topic, and funny you mention Japanese:

    Gabe Newell Reveals Steam Password, Proves Steam Guard Works

    Hey, wait a minute... What has he done!? Unless he's got a special script to turn off all access inquiries, he's just made the whole world spam thousands of e-mails to his inbox! EDIT: Oh wait... it doesn't send an e-mail notification, does it? Dangit, I got confused. EDIT 2: Oh wait, yes it...
