Chet Faliszek joins Bossa to make co-op action game

Chet Faliszek, the former Valve Software writer who done them jokes and other words real good for games including the Portals and Left 4s Dead, has joined Bossa Studios.

Valve loses its fourth writer in two years, as Jay Pinkerton leaves the company

According to a Facebook update on Jay Pinkerton's timeline, he left the company last night.

The Remarkable Notability Of Old Man Murray

This is something special. If you saw Wednesday's article about Old Man Murray's temporary deletion from Wikipedia, you'll know that it was originally deemed "not notable" due to a lack of references.

RPS Electronic Wireless Show L4D2 Special

While wandering the long, barren corridors of Valve HQ I stumbled upon Chet Faliszek and Erik Wolpaw, the two men who a few years ago made up the members of Old Man Murray. Bundling both of them into a big sack I carried them into a room packed with buzzing PCs and forced them to join in on a podcast to discuss the release of…

Inarticulacy In the UK: Brits Don’t Talk

John B noticed this little quote-span-into-article over at C&VG where Chet opines that the British are "notorious non-talkers" in online games. Basically, while Americans yabber constantly, the Brits take a more taciturn approach. This will, apparently, cause some major problems when playing L4D2's realism mode. Talk or die. TALK OR DIE. What do you make of it. Is this true? Or is it that Americans…
