SourceA Steam Group hopes using politeness and respect will encourage Valve to speak up about Half-Life.
Over 10,000 gamers have joined a new Steam Group that's looking for Valve to be more outgoing about the next step for its award winning (but dormant) series. The group, titled A Call for Communication (Half-Life) is hoping that by keeping its message simple, respectful and non-confrontational, it will be able grab Valve's attention better than using a campaign of anger and negativity.
"We have decided to gain Valve's attention by delivering a basic message," the group stated in their open letter to the Bellevue, Washington-based company. "Your oldest and longest running fanbase would like better communication.
"Waiting patiently for over four years is a daunting task, especially when E3 comes and goes without any beat of a Half-Life pulse," the group continued. "Valve had stated that information was scheduled to be released towards the end of 2008, and we believe that if they have chosen, for whatever reason, to withhold this information, fans should at least be acknowledged in some way."
I have to say that I agree with the point the group is trying to get across.
