Gabe Newell of Portal, Counter Strike, and Half-Life gaming fame is partnering with J.J. Abrams of Cloverfield and Star Trek fame. For what you might ask? Creating movies and games, via their respective companies, Bad Robot Productions and Valve Software. “We sort of reached the point where we decided that we needed to do more than talk,” Newell said of the partnership at the DICE 2013 conference in San Francisco. For example, J.J.’s team could craft a Half-Lifeor Portal film said Newell, something that would no doubt be very interesting.
