Poll Time: Favorite game developer

Hey guys, I've been thinking lately about my favorite developer, gaming developer that is. And it's really hard to pick one but I guess it's either Rockstar Games or Valve Software. Both of those made several gaming masterpieces and set the bar extremely high for all future developers. What are your picks?

Valve invites developers to discuss and test Steam

Valve has announced a two-day game developer’s conference in Seattle called “Steam Dev Days” that will allow game creators from around the globe to speak in roundtable discussions, attend industry lectures, and test out SteamOS, the Steam Controller, and an assortment of Steam machines. Considering the event’s not being held until mid-January, it’s a safe bet we won’t see any of Valve’s recent announcements on store shelves this year. After…

Although by looking on those trailers you can see how poor the graphics are going to be on the current gen consoles… in some areas it looks horrible (textures, blurriness etc.). PC Gamer suspects that the PC version of GTA…

The good one is THE AFTER, but we need to put the BEFORE, and some of the process.
“NO ANIMALS WERE WARMED IN THIS PROCESS, EXCEPT THE DEAD ONES IN THE PROCESS HIT AND BEATEN TO DEAD WHICH BE USED TO BE COOKED”
Kisses

AFTER BEFORE

Valve on Virtual Reality: “it will take years, if not decades”

Those who’ve tried playing Team Fortress 2 with the Oculus Rift largely agree that it’s a game changer. Yet Valve’s tech-brain in chief, Michael Abrash, talked at GDC extensively about the challenges of developing working VR and especially AR systems, and what exactly technical advances we’ll need to get a more satisfactory VR system.

valve-tf2-oculus

Virtual Reality (VR) is a closed, totally immersive 3D system that appears in the frame of reference of the real world – so turning your head turns it in Virtual Reality. Alternate Reality (AR) is virtual reality images that appear to coexist with the real world, distinct from the simple overlays that, say, Google Glass does. And, Regular Reality, as Abrash has it, is the real world.

Valve’s business increased by 50 percent last year

Gabe Newell stepped up to the stage during last week’s BAFTA awards to receive the prestigious Academy Fellowship for his contributions to gaming. Newell credited Valve’s successes largely to user-generated content on open platforms such as Steam Workshop before sharing some jaw-dropping numbers. “There’s sort of an insatiable demand for gaming right now,” Newell said. “I think our business has grown by about 50 percent on the back of opportunities…

Poll Time: Next-gen consoles and more!

I like how Crytek just said what pretty much everyone knows: “It’s impossible to package $2,000-$3,000 worth of hardware into a mainstream—let’s say $500—console,” Yerli says. “I’m not saying they are $500 consoles. They may launch a console at $2,000, but the consumer pricing is usually much lower than that. So, given consumer pricing, and given the cost of production of a gamer PC and the amount of wattage and…

Poll Time: Is buying games on sales more important to you than actually playing them?

I've been reading reddit few minutes ago and this question seems to be very interesting. What do you guys think? I've personally bought hundreds of games earlier during those big sales that I will probably never launch - and that's not only on Steam, other services too, I don't even think of finishing them to be honest. Now I just try to limit myself to games that I really, really want or to the…
