Valve's Gabe Newell did an Ask Me Anything

0

'GabeN, what are your specs? Well, I'm a handsome man with a charming personality'

After a false start, Valve co-founder Gabe Newell took to reddit for an Ask Me Anything alongside several other Valve employees. While nothing too revelatory was said, Newell did comment on the upcoming Source 2 engine and its focus on user-generated content, saying:

"The biggest improvements will be in increasing productivity of content creation. That focus is driven by the importance we see UGC having going forward. A professional developer at Valve will put up with a lot of pain that won't work if users themselves have to create content."

Valve has no current plans for exclusives on SteamOS, the Internet's obsession with Newell is "entertaining for [his] friends," and this year's International for Dota 2 is likely to take place at "Key Arena in Seattle, but we haven't gotten everything finalized, and there is always a risk that our schedules and theirs won't align in some way."

If the company "could borrow an IP from another company to make a game for it," Newell would choose The Warriors, Greg Coomer would take Groundhog Day or Heathers, and Erik Wolpaw would go for God Hand or Saints Row. Can you dig it?
