    The secret is буженина or buzheneena, tasty cold boiled pork. It travels well and has medicinal qualities. Try it the next time you are in Russia.

    Thanks

    While heavy is killing little babies with sasha, he often enjoys his tasty sandvich. Question is, how did he make bunch of sandviches what can cure burn,gun, knife etc wounds ? And how did he manage to make so much so he can eat them at spawn while his team is losing heavily to enemy team.

    When you release maps in the packs that you release and the maps

    download custom maps? Thanks man,

    Replied(From Robin Walker):
    Hi Ian.
    Yes, we often make minor fixes/changes to the community maps before we
    release them. Sometimes we talk to the original mapmaker and they make
    the changes, other times we do it. If an exploit is discovered, we'll
    fix it if it's an obvious fix, or talk to the original mapmaker if it's
    not. We work with the mapmaker to try and ensure the name we use is
    unique, so that it doesn't collide with previous versions of the map.

    I think it's awesome. Maybe not the greatest gaming platform, but as an overall entertainment system it is by far the best.

    Gabe,
    From what I understand, you, or someone else at Valve respond to most every e-mail you receive. Also, as you actually advertise e-mailing you in your games, one could only wonder how many e-mails are sent to you every day.

    My question is this:
    Do you actually do anything other than sit around and answer e-mails all day? Is that why your games are always delayed several years?

    Sincerely,
    A concerned citizen
    I never got a response :(

    Did you guys ever see that movie about that demon that would possess people and then when he was about to die he'd always sing that "time is on my side" song then some black dude has to come back and track him down and kill off all the people he's possessing but then he finds out that he can possess anyone near him so he gets possessed and has to jump off a cliff and kill himself so that the demon can't possess anyone else?

    They replied...
    Ti-i-i-ime is on my side, yes it is.
    I sent this back in March. It was a fast response too.

    Do people honestly believe that Gabe himself responds to all of these e-mails? He probably gets thousands of these everyday. He just has secretaries who reply. Still, at least Valve has a good sense of humor.

    And you don't get the same 'feeling' when you get a trophy as you do when you get an achievement.

    Achievements are awesome.

    I guess Valve just made their achievement system blindly and hoped nobody else had a similar idea.
