I can't help but think that this story and the reaction to it would be much different if Gabe Newell was a woman.

that's an odd implication to make. both genders are equally disturbed (as in, emotionally- not 'troubled' as it were) by threats, are they not?

The only implication I was making was that Patrick's story, and the comments contained within it, would be different if the receiver of this threat was a woman. There are no value judgments in my statement.

@tesla: not sure what gender has to do with anything here

See above.

Yeah, there would be a lot of angry people saying how Valve and Gabe (Gabrielle?) were overreacting over a joke and that they should actullay really die over how stupid they were.

Yes, unfortunately you are probably correct.

This could be really cool, and I find it kind of hilarious to have any other opinion besides that at this point.

Dishonored...because it came out on the same day as XCOM. I bought both games on release, then promptly got hooked on XCOM for a few months. Finally found the time to go back and finish up Dishonored and I'm really glad I did. Super great game, right up there with some of my all time favorites.

Also Strider, because it was free. That game is much more fun and interesting than I ever imagined it would be. I'll probably see that one all the way to the end as well.

I'm also on the last mission of Wolfenstein, because I stopped for a few weeks after blasting my way through most of the game. I think the game stumbles a bit towards the end, or maybe I was the one stumbling but I'm back into it now and ready to finish it up, then go back and try the other timeline a few months down the road.

Nice interview! EVO is the best, even for someone like me who rarely plays fighting games. Luffy's list of dudes he brought down in order to win the title is truly impressive.

Space combat/more vehicular combat in general. I'm holding out hope that this will be present in the final product.

More configuration options, which could also be in the retail release I guess. There are a few minor things I wish I could adjust: which player names are visible and when(Tower vs. missions), whether or not you see numbers pop off on hits, and a few other small things I'm forgetting now.

I wish that connecting with people outside your Fireteam while you're out on missions was handled a little more elegantly. It's kind of a bummer to kick some ass with a random stranger and watch them just kind of disappear after hitting an invisible zone wall. Also, some areas feel like the respawn timing for enemies could be adjusted.

Other than those minor issues, the game feels like it was made just for me. Can't wait to play the full game.

I like everything about this game, it feels like it was made just for me.

I loved that match between K-Brad and the Australian Bison whose name escapes me. And after seeing Daigo's E.Ryu I really want to see him match up against Sako's.

I will echo those that have said Phantasmagoria. It's one of the best things on the site.
