Gabe Newell to be Awarded BAFTA Fellowship
BAFTA - as in, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts - has announced that they'll be giving a fellowship to Valve Software's Gabe Newell. That means Gabe will be joining the likes of Shigeru Miyamoto, Peter Molyneux, and Will Wright. BAFTA cites his work in creating Steam as a digital download platform, his help in turning mod-makers into real game developers, and the many great games Valve has made as cornerstones of his fellowship. Congrats Gabe! The ceremony will be on at 10PM GMT (5PM Eastern) on March 11th, and it'll be streamed live for free on Twitch.tv.
