A Twitter post by a Valve employee this morning said:
"2 fans are picketing outside our office for the release of Half Life 3"





Gabe out there for a moment showing his support.

Haha, you could replace the text on the signs and it could be from any year between 1959 and today. Great.

You see Tales fans, why don't we have that kind of solidarity? Oh, right, because we actually have lives going on in the foreground, and this usually never works. Never mind, carry on.

Internet petitions with thousands of signers get completely ignored by VG companies, but picketing with a mere 2 people gets the attention of Gabe. Obviously picketing is the way to go in the future.

Agreed. He got out just in time. His skin still looks perfect smooth

The Valve employee removed the twitter post. I don't think they want anyone to get any ideas.

I do not avoid women, GAF, but I do deny them my essence.

Gabe is such a beast. Amazing man.

edit: If you look closely at the second sign you can see he messed up the A and tried to cover it up. Smooth.

I like how they seemed to have used ball-point pens for that too. lol

Well, I agree with it. Things done in the real, physical world simply are more fun for all parties involved.
