Having just had my very own Steam account hijacked not two weeks ago I welcomed Valve’s recent announcement of their new Steam anti-hijacker protection system with tears of joy and of hitting my shin against a chest of drawers. But mostly joy. Which makes Gabe Newell’s stunt of offering up his Steam login details as a challenge to the new system so hard to watch, because although Valve is as dear to me as the aforementioned shin, like hitting said shin on a piece of furniture, this can only end in tears.
The Half Life 2 source code kerfuffle is still fresh in our minds if not Gabe’s and if last time he had the FBI sort it out, I’m guessing they’re going to be raising an eyebrow or two over this. Still, maybe I’m not giving the man enough credit and the system is that good. Whoever does break in there eventually, could you be a dear and let us know what Team Fortress 2 class Gabe plays the most? I’m betting it’s not Spy.
