Broken Promises

Why didn't Gabe show up to the Video Game Awards, they said he'd be there.

Who said they'd be there to present anything?

If they did say anything to the effect of "we will be there" (and I have absolutely no idea why you'd think that, no evidence to that anywhere I have seen other than the wild demands of frothing fans) it meant "we will be there watching".

They had nothing to present. They didn't promise anything. No promises to be broken. Stop whining.

Valve presented plenty of things? Wheatley's "OMGZ I've been nominated for best character speech" As well as Portal 2 nominated for GOTY. I'm sure they were there but didn't win anything to be called on stage. Also I like how conspiracies are floating around now that Whealtey repeated "1..1...1.." What have you done valve!

Valve isn't responsible for any of the rabid bizarreness coming from fans. Fans are.

And yeah, if they were being presented with awards, I'd say, "of course they would say they'd be there". In any award ceremony, you'll have the people nominated present.

Jeez, really.

Gabe was at the show but he left early because he was called to a meeting regarding Half-Life 2: Episode 3.

Who cares? It's not like the awards aren't affected by industry bribes anyway. Best that Gabe stay away from that crap.

I am sure Gabe has been dedicating his time working.

I just hope he has not descended into a Howard Hughes-esque madness which hinders Ep3 as much as it furthers it...

Gabe: NO!! That pixel is wrong, the entire room is wrong!!
*Deletes a fourth of Ep3's maps*
Gabe: Do it all over again, and do it right this time!!

Didn't Howard Hughes collect his own pee? Someone should check Gabe's office for jars of jarate.
