    If you don't know who Gonk the cat is...

    Jess Cliffe
    While attending Virginia Tech, Jess co-created the original Counter-Strike. You may have heard his voice yell, “Counter-Terrorists Win!” once or twice. Ask him to say it; he loves that. These days, Jess can be found working on Left 4 Dead 2 and attempting to toilet train his cat Gonk. He’s this close.

    I sent her an email during the weekend and she responded in the afternoon on Monday (PST).

    I then got the gifts the week after.

    I had sent her a message during the afternoon (Central time) on Tuesday(it was mainly asking questions), and I still have yet to get a reply.
    Someone in the Episode 3 Discussion thread said
    I was thinking they set their spam filters to block anything with "Episode 3" or "HL3" in it
    I was thinking, if that's true, then Gabe got none of my messages and neither did Mary.
    If that's so, I'll rewrite the letter to Mary, but leave out "Episode 3" in it.
    But I doubt that's true.

    I can't imagine they'd filter that out. I mean I can understand why, but I'd be a little surprised if they really did that.

    When I sent my message it was like a week before I got a reply. But they may have taken time off or something when I sent it.

    Or she's just a genuinely nice person that handles the massive flux of emails/questions that Valve gets.

    Which I think is more accurate. She seems super nice!

    Valve store won't ship to Brazil, along with a lot of other countries, this has been said before.
    They also come signed to you, which is even more awesome.

    Lets see, around €7 for gold, lets say those 10 games were around 10€ which gives us €100 and adding those other 60 games which we will price around €5 which in total gives us around €407.
    Keep in mind that some of these games might have been allot more then €10.
    (i did this in € but you get the idea)

    When I meant bundle it was actually "5€ for 5 games".
    It would be about 300€, which is about the prize of a console and one or two games, so I don't consider myself spending too much.

    Why the fuck would you even care?
    Oh my God that's creepy in so many levels, gee.
    If I want my free stuff I want my free stuff, it's free for a reason ffs
    Doesn't matter if someone's rich they'll still ask for it because it's fucking valve we're talking about, it's awesome and FREE
    I'll never understand people who complain about other people getting free stuff

    Valve scares are off by 1lb or point something of a pound. So don't worry if it starts getting ligher on the way.
