    I think even if MINERVA gets its life cut short everyone should be happy for him. It is good to see that putting your talent out there can actually get you somewhere. While I don't like everything Valve does (like not selling the Black Box) I think overall they are a fantastic company which breaks the mold of a typical game maker.

    2010? Lol. But actually, I enjoyed some parts of MINERVA more in terms of design than HL2 and wondered at the time why valve hadn't hired the guy behind it. I'm happy for him :D

    I enjoyed Minerva alot!

    I'm a big fan of Empires Mod but it seems to be a little dead at the moment after the lead dev quit and handed down the ranks to some of the community. I think things are happening just very slowley. The mod is a FPS/RTS hybrid.

    Check it out at www.empiresmod.com

    Valve are my favorite game studio.I mean look at what they've done for the indie-developers: Steam ,all the SDKs, Steamworks and the fact that Portal was made by a group of srudents who were hired by Valve.
    Mr. Newell and Mr. Lombardi are brilliant!
