The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...


Valve Looking For "Principal Industrial Designer"

Game developer and Lord of the Industry Valve posted a job listing for a principal industrial designer Aug. 28.

“We’re hoping to add your expertise in product design and manufacturing, ergonomics, usability, aesthetics, and surfacing to our team,” reads the ad.

There’s a real void in the marketplace, and opportunities to create compelling user experiences are being overlooked.”

Those words are music to my ears. Now, we must face reality and admit this may just be a move to redesign mice, keyboards, and other computer bits, as they’re specifically mentioned in the ad. Or they could finally be making a Steambox, in which case we can all die happy gamers, no longer slaves to PSN hacks and Xbox LIVE fees.

Just imagine: A Steambox. Shaped like your buddy Companion Cube. Bundled with Half Life 3 at launch. Be still, my heart.
