More than 30,000 gamers have pledged to play Half-Life 2 in an attempt to send a message to Valve: stop messing around and start dishing the details on the next game in the series.

To make the strength of feeling known, the group is asking its members to play Half-Life 2 on Saturday. By suddenly boosting the numbers playing the now somewhat dated title, it's hoped Valve will sit up and take notice. It's perfectly possible that the group will achieve its goal. With 33,587 members at the time of writing, its numbers are difficult to ignore.

Sweet baby Wonka, ten of thousands of gamers are involved in these protests. The sheer power they're wielding is enormous. It also seems their dedication and commitment to the cause is unwavering, so they are also pure of heart.
Thankfully, they're only using their wide reaching influence for good.

There's only word that can describe those taking time out of their day to do this.

Heroes.

I'll join up if I remember. HL2DM should count and it's still a blast.

Boycott Steam, that'll be more effective than playing HL2 in order to get Valve to release info on HL3

I don't really care about HL3, but I'll join if I can.
