It's been a while since we had any sort of on-going feature here at Halflife2.net, but today I'm pleased to announce that we're now running a mailbag feature![br]Every month we'll set a topic and all you need to do is e-mail us with your opinions and you might have the chance of winning a top prize if you submit the best letter to us.[br]This month's topic is about Episodic gaming and you can read the full details, here.[br]The best letters and the winner will be published in two weeks time, when once again we'll be posing another topic.[br]Got something else to say? Just e-mail us anyway!

I'm already in receipt of the prizes, it's up to me who gets them, not Valve. And anyway, they design their future projects on criticism.

You should tell them you think Gordon Freeman is emo because he doesn't speak.

This better not be a downloadable prize like a Steam package or one you won't send to Ireland *shakes fist*

No matter what the prize is, we'll come to some sort of way of getting it to anywhere in the world, providing they have some sort of postal system in their area :)

Mr Deeming you've given it away!

/me zombifies Chris.

I thought any community based interests like this had all died the moment most of the staff found gardening more interesting (can't blame them of recent). Anyway, wheres this come from?

Crap, every time I try to write this it ends up like an article instead of a letter. I need help :(

Is it possible to request and will the request be honored, that only you read the the letter and not other people unless it wins.

I submitted my letter, but I have no intention of winning at all. It's just that by posting my ideas, Chris_D will have to spend more time on picking the right winner D/

I think I might write a letter, though not for consideration as a prizewinner (it wouldn't be very fair for staff to be allowed in on that, now would it?)

Absolutely, usual competition rules apply.

No staff, affiliates or partners of Halflife2.net are permitted to enter the mailbag contest, etc. blah blah.

Yeah, submit something Ennui. It's about time you wrote something considering you're a content writer now :p

j/k :D

I don't think you're going to get many more entrys if you prolong it :) Just announce the winner.

Maybe the winner should get to choose the next question :D

was just wondering what's going on with this. results were supposed to have been out a week ago. i don't mind if the deadline's been extended but there's no reason why we should be kept in the dark about it.
