Google to buy Valve
« on: September 17, 2008, 06:59:43 am »
Or that's what the word on the street is.

You know, I'd actually be totally okay with this. This is the one company Valve can sell themselves out to that doesn't result in me getting upset. It might even be a great thing for Steam.

The Google Copration is trying to make me one of their followers. And it's working :P

Lets think about this for a second, we'll be able to access steam via google, Valve will get lots of funding from Google becuase they use Million dollar bills like no-body's buisness. Hell, if it wern't for google then this forum would be empty. So lets give it up for google! ALL HAIL THE GOOGLY OVERLORDS.
the real saviour of this forum

Well it certainly is better news than Valve being bought out by EA. If that EVER happened I would literally drive to EA and yell through a megaphone "YOU MANIACS!!! YOU BLEW IT UP!!!"

Oh bother...

They're going to turn it into one of those kinds of rumors.

Of course it's just a rumor, like Patman posted, Valve has denied that Google is buying them.  All I'm sayin' is that you can't trust companies when it comes to this sort of thing, they usually deny everything until the deal is inked.  Time is the only thing that will tell whether or not this is true.

I have a good feeling about google buying Valve. I trust them based on their last purchase of YouTube. They bought it and didn't go about changing a whole lot of crap, they simply used their money to make it BETTER.


Hail the mighty Google!
