Gabe Newell And J.J. Abrams's Talk Has R2-D2 Easter Egg

A week after it happened, you can now watch the DICE Summit's kick-off talk between Star Trek/Star Wars' J.J. Abrams and Steam/Half-Life 3's Gabe Newell.

It was a fun talk that ended with Abrams and Newell talking about making games and movies together. That's the news you probably saw last week. But watch everything that comes before it today: lots of great exchanges — with specific examples — about the best and worst things about games and movies.

Bonus: Go 12 minutes into the clip to see Abrams actually talk about the R2-D2 cameo in his 2009 Star Trek movie. Not a new easter egg, but it's rare to see Abrams talking about it. Gee, why would he be more chatty about that all of a sudden?


    I enjoyed that star ttek movie actually, but I sure didn't spot R2-D2!
