official: gabe newell says NTSUX

Gabe Newell and Erik Johnson of Valve Software visited my workplace in New Zealand during their recent "Australia" trip. They were visiting my boss because my boss visits Valve occasionally when he goes to the states. So it was sort of like Gabe's turn to return the favor. Anyways, the day before Gabe and Erik showed up I made a speech bubble that says NTSUX, and I had my cardboard cutout Jitte which some of you may have already seen from me posting it in IRC. And long story short, I told Gabe that I made a mod called NEOTOKYO and asked if I could have a picture with him:

Goes without saying, but Gabe and Erik were super cool, and really down to earth. And Gabe knows when a mod sux and doesn't shy away from saying it! My other option was to have him say GLASSEATER SUX but I didn't want to miss the NT golden moment opportunity(tm) , plus everyone knows about Glass already.

nope.. it was literally a 30 second photo op while they were touring around my jobsite.. so didn't get to have any kind of in-depth convo. Just some chit chat and then a photo.. BUT I did give them each a copy of the OST. So if nothing else maybe they listened to that on the flight home :)

Frightening. Gabe looks like my vision of Santa Claus, sans beard.

My first reaction was "is there a 'store' button on neotokyohq?"
