This wasn't in the first game was it?

If it's in Half-Life 2 it'll look absolutely bitchin. Wonder how large it is.

I didn't smash my face up in front of them, no. But I was standing right in front of them for the picture to be taken.

Hmm okay I haven't been posting much (don't even know if I even have when I'm typing this) ;)

But thank you for doing all this.

Oh and I just read @ gameFAQs ;) that MGS2 went gold 2 small days before it hit the shelves. So don't lose faith in HL2 just yet :) Again, thanks!

It means that the game is done and a mastercopy will be burned on a cd (most of the time this will be on a cd with a gold layer) and will be shipped to the factory that'll make the million copies and after that it'll be distributed to the retailers...

Not that Im jelouse, but what said that Spitcodfry was suppose to go? Did he win a bet? Comeptition? Or its just because he lives near?

Nice to have someone "on the inside" though ;)

Cause I live like only 30 minutes from their office. I got their new address (old offices were in Kirkland) through directory assistance and drove down there to find it.

The building they were in happened to be one I'd been in before. My favorite restaurant, Daniel's Broiler, is on the top floor. Valve happened to be on the 10th.

Anywho...the first time I went there to check to see if they were there was really just a show of cowardice. I walked past the front entrance and noticed some sort of reception going on.

I thought this maybe was a 'gold' party that Valve was throwing. I didn't bother to ask anyone, though.

I came back here on the forums, posted all my speculation, and a whole lotta hub-bub ensued. A real nice chap on here, Kamakiri, e-mailed Gabe and asked if I could get a tour the next day.

Gabe responded to him rather quickly and said that I should just phone the receptionist and arrange a time to come in. The rest is history :)

Thats kewl! Even more kewl that they just let you in like that! Talk about supporting their fans!

Looking at the pictures, it seems like a rather small place for such big company! :D Small offices and I got the impression that the hallway was quite long but thin ;) Lol, sounds like my korridoor place Im living in right now (yes, Im a student) :)

There was someone typing when you were there right? Would be neat if you had taken some picture of him, while typing and let us see some of the code ;) (since Im studing Computer Science that would be quite fonky)
