A Message To Valve: Call for Communication

A thread on Reddit and in the Steam Forums points to a Steam Group with the purpose of getting as many Steam users to play Half-Life 2 on February 4th between 11:00am-11:30am PDT.  The reasoning behind this movement is to make Half-Life 2 the most played game on Steam during this time so of the brass at Valve will make an attempt better communicate with its fanbase as to the current development process of the long awaited, Half-Life 2: Episode 3.

Here is a quote from the Steam Group member page:

The lack of communication between Valve and the Half-Life community has been a frustrating experience. While continued support for current and future products is greatly appreciated, fans of the Half-Life series have waited years for a word on when the franchise will return.

So, Instead of focusing efforts in a negative and disrespectful way, we have decided to gain Valve’s attention by delivering a basic message:

Your oldest and longest running fanbase would like better communication.

You can also follow the Steam Group via Twitter and Facebook.

  1. That’s quite an interesting approach besides petitions, trolling and the likes. I bet Newell won’t miss that kind of statistic if does actually happen. I missed one of those silly boxes with supplies so maybe I could replay the entire game and catch ’em all to join the crowd, heh.

    But I guess it’s better not to ask about Ep. 3, these guys are well known for their slow developing times. Imagine how much time we would need to wait for the proper Half-Life 3…

  2. HL3?. Hell, give me those DoD:S fixes that have been done for 3 years and Valve won’t release because they don’t want to dedicate 2 (expletive) hours to playtest them.

    They used DoD:S to beta test moving CS:S to the Orange Box, and now every time they add some hats to TF2, something new breaks in DoD:S. It’s by far the worst support any Valve game has nowadays.
