Oh there's something new, uhhh... [quote][B]- to Marc[/B] I see, is there any chance of a Trauma Center style minigame in Episode 3 where the player can attempt it themselves? [B]Marc Laidlaw to me[/B] I see Episode 3 must have leaked.[/quote]
Not Valve but... [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/DBLdF.png[/IMG] [editline]26th October 2011[/editline] Overkill's awesome.
[QUOTE=Harakiwi;32925923]Ok, normally I don't like to spam here, but since the response was great, here's a heads up. I've just submitted the model again to the TF2 workshop. You can view it here: [url]http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2832[/url][/QUOTE] I talked to him about that. He said it'll be a Half Life preorder bonus along with a headcrab hat.

I e-mailed valve asking to see if I could have a tour of their studios. It was last week, and I am STILL waiting for a reply!
I don't think they answer everyone's "can i have a tour" emails in fear of giving everyone and their brother a tour.
[QUOTE=Recombobulator;32994163]I e-mailed valve asking to see if I could have a tour of their studios. It was last week, and I am STILL waiting for a reply![/QUOTE] I've been waiting for A MONTH for an answer from Chet Falizek.
I emailed Valve a long time ago, like July or August, to ask for autographs on my games. They said yes, so I mailed them in. I emailed them again recently. Kinda felt bad about doing it, but I'd really like to get my Portal 2 back before I get shipped off. My brother really wants to play with me before I go. Still no response on that. You guys think they kept them as payment for the tour, or something? :B
how long does it normally take gabe to reply?
Well he answered my email in 4 hours. But that was the same day Sony had their E3 2010 conference.
would sending an email again be ok? I don't want to be pushy but it would be cool if he donated some stuff to my school's fundraiser.
[QUOTE=Goodthief;33017061]would sending an email again be ok? I don't want to be pushy but it would be cool if he donated some stuff to my school's fundraiser.[/QUOTE] Woah, you're kind of asking a big thing. If he didn't reply for the first time, I doubt he will reply for the second one. This stuff that "would be cool" costs a lot of money. And well just in my opinion it's kind of rude to bother him asking to give a lot of free shit.

And well just in my opinion it's kind of rude to bother him asking to give a lot of free shit.[/QUOTE] I wasn't asking for a lot, I just thought that if people that visit the company get boxes of free stuff, asking for 2 or 3 pieces of merchandise would be a less great favour. I don't want cool stuff I just want any piece of merchandise that we can raffle away for charity. The way I think of it is that even if he gave us one thing the thought that someone could win a valve item will entice a lot of people in my school to pay money for raffles. [editline]29th October 2011[/editline] also I sent my email on a sunday afternoon (saturday night/early morning for him) so maybe by the time he came back to work on monday it was long gone. unless he checks his email every day in which case he probably just ignored me.
[QUOTE=Jericho_Rus;33019760]Woah, you're kind of asking a big thing.[/QUOTE] It's not really a "big thing" if your request is backed by your school. [editline]29th October 2011[/editline] I'm going to email Steam support in a few weeks (months?) to ask if I can buy valve complete packs in bulk for discount because I'm starting a PC gaming club.

[editline]29th October 2011[/editline] I'm going to email Steam support in a few weeks (months?) to ask if I can buy valve complete packs in bulk for discount because I'm starting a PC gaming club.[/QUOTE] wow cool, I guess you might save a bit more money if you buy it during one of the sales (Christmas mainly) since it goes down to like $50 or do you want it for less?
well i need a licence for each computer in one classroom, so that's $50 * 24 to 32 computers = $1200 to $1600 so yeah, a huge discount would be helpful
I guess if you ask nicely then they might lower it to $30-$40 because it's for educational purposes.
I asked Gabe if he could do something for me on my birthday. He hasn't replied back. Goodie.
[QUOTE=Goodthief;33034180]I guess if you ask nicely then they might lower it to $30-$40 because it's for educational purposes.[/QUOTE] I'm hoping for around $20-$25 for each pack. It's not like they're losing money over digital distribution. :v:
[QUOTE=Goodthief;33034180]I guess if you ask nicely then they might lower it to $30-$40 because it's for educational purposes.[/QUOTE] They once said in an e-mail that in about a month they will make Steam accounts with free Portal 1/2 copies for it for students to learn or something.
What is about the best time to send an email to Gabe? I have no clue what to get for my girlfriend her birthday, was thinking something related with Portal but buying something in the Valve store is expensive for me.
He reads every email, so any time is okay with him.
[QUOTE=Raijin;33052088]He reads every email, so any time is okay with him.[/QUOTE] [I]every[/I] email? damn that means that he just ignored me.
or it means he gets a ton of emails and it takes a while for him to reach yours.
I hope it's that
He responded to my what's your favorite Pokemon e-mail within like an hour.
[QUOTE=H4wkeye;33054920]He responded to my what's your favorite Pokemon e-mail within like an hour.[/QUOTE] He posted on my Pokemon forum saying what his favorite Pokemon was within 15 minutes. After making sure it was legitimate I made a Gabe Newell subforum and started banning anyone who spoke ill of it. Everyone either thinks its fake or doesn't understand the significance of it. ;_;
He never did respond to my video email, though I know through my site stats that he (or someone else at Valve) watched it, checked out my portfolio, and forwarded the video link to a few other Valve folks. My hope was that the reason he'd forwarded it was because he got a kick out of it... but now I suspect it was for mockery purposes. Which, hey, that's fair enough -- it was pretty mock-worthy. Still, would've loved a reply even if it was "um, don't quit your day job, lady." :)
