Mary answered to me within a couple hours. But to be honest guys, you all want this stuff because... [img]http://www.emezeta.com/weblog/memes/its-free.png[/img]
So I wrote an email last weekend about a little typo on de_train in CS:GO since everything's written in russian on that map and also asked how the whole Blizzard vs Valve trademarking Dota thing went. [B]She didn't reply to any of that,[/B] instead she asked if I wanted the poster (that I asked for quite some time ago) or a dota 2 key. Went with the poster, even though I have a shitton of them already (bought those fuckers from valve store). And at some point Mary replied with: [IMG]http://filesmelt.com/dl/valve1.png[/IMG] [i]"that message was the closest I ever got to banging a chick"[/i]

[img]http://www.emezeta.com/weblog/memes/its-free.png[/img][/QUOTE] I want this stuff because it's Valve. If I wanted free stuff I would be taking every single free thing I see from the internet. They're willing to give [B]you[/B] stuff because [B]you[/B] are the fan here, and they want you to be a fan. I'm with Starscre4M too, they don't ship over here.
So how do I get a CSS wallpaper?
[QUOTE=wanksta11;35598544]So how do I get a CSS wallpaper?[/QUOTE] right click image "set as desktop background"
[QUOTE=TomZa;35592173]swag [t]http://www.imgur.com/0zBBB.jpg[/t] i love mary[/QUOTE] That's cool. They don't even sell that one on the store page. Makes me wonder if they still have any discontinued shirts left over.
[QUOTE=richard9311;35572316]Is this too forward?[/QUOTE] No response, so apparently yes.
I got a response about she'd send something out. Still haven't got anything :saddowns:

I was pretty broke last year, and I tried to ask for a portal 2 poster signed/ or any portal 2 collectables for my brother's birthday(he had a cake portal styled/portal 2 copy from my mom). I asked politely, but never got a response, I'm sure they were just very busy or something, should I try again for anything since my brother's birthday is in 2 weeks? I'm not cheap, I've given some pretty great gifts in the past, money has just been very tight for the family.

I hate asking for free stuff so I asked for something for my friend's 19th coming up. 19 is the legal drinking age here so it's a pretty big birthday, so I figured I'd buy him a drink and give him a sweet poster if Valve sends me one. I hope they do, his walls are goddamn bare.

I need to email someone at Valve who does mapping with hammer, does anyone know who I should talk to?
[QUOTE=The Pretender;35627586]I need to email someone at Valve who does mapping with hammer, does anyone know who I should talk to?[/QUOTE] I emailed Phil Co and he's a little busy this week apparently
[QUOTE=GameDev;35627671]I emailed Phil Co and he's a little busy this week apparently[/QUOTE] I wonder why.
I sent Michael Abrash a mail. [quote]Dear Michael, I just read your new blog post. All of it. It was truly fascinating. I really liked the part where you told Valve was still contacting you for 14 years. It was so fascinating in fact, that I wanted to share you my train of thought. I have been making a few models since Oct 2011, using 3ds max. I've learned most of the program myself in just one saturday. I have created several working models for Team Fortress 2, following the same style the team has set up for the game. I've also done some programming in C++, though that was nothing extraordinary. I've also used the Hammer Editor. As you can read, I've picked up some VERY minor experience in game designing, and I decided I like creating things. Currently, I'm following a basic ICT course in Helmond, the Netherlands. This college offers multimedia (mostly making websites) and programming, using C++, which I'll most likely follow. Unfortunately, it doesn't offer anything to do with models. For that, I'm going to have to study at least 40 miles from where I live. There is only one game designing studio in the Netherlands, named Guerilla Studios (they made the Killzone series) in Amsterdam. Amsterdam however, is at least 200 kilometres from where I live. Since you have first-hand experience in becoming a game designer, I would like to know what my chances are in doing the same. Your blog post opened eyes for me. It truly did. It showed me how Valve works behind its curtains, and I like what I see. I hope you can tell me on how to become a game designer, and I would extremely appreciate it if you could find time to send me a reply. Thank you,[/quote]
