3 new limited edition hats have been added to the TF2 store, and proceeds from their sales will go to the Japan relief effort.

A result of the Replay Update. I get a new hat if I get 1,000 views smile.

Watch!

Anyone here actually play TF2? We got a regular, huge group of players that go pretty much every night on GWJ.

Hey, I think I was your first view!  smile

I used to play TF2 quite a bit, but haven't for a few months.  The constant hat updates has kind of turned me off from playing TF2 anymore.  Lately Monday Night Combat fits the bill if I feel in the mood for that type of game.

The Saxxy's seems like a pretty cool idea. The few times I get on to play I'm far too busy trying to survive, so there's no way I'd be able to muster the thought required to create a film. That said, the 'Epic Fail' category sounds like one I'd have a chance at.   icon_biggrin

I keep hoping that 1 of these uber announcements will be that Valve's fixed the issues that have turned the game into a slo-mo fest. I fear all these hats and store crap are just breaking the poor, aging game engine.   paranoid

Yeah I play nearly every night with a solid group of guys from Gamers With Jobs (which has a few OO'ers there as well). The quality of play is pretty high and communication is excellent.

Here is a link to their forum.
Here is a link to the thread that has been going on since beta, a few years ago. It currently has almost 37,000 posts, so it's updated often. You don't need to read them all or anything, just post a link to your SteamID and ask for an invite to the group. Every night around 8:30-9:30 eastern there'll be an announcement for the server. They have private server nights on Monday and Friday. You'll want to play there and post on the forum a couple times before you ask for the password.

Whoah, bold move Valve. Bold move.

Still, they put so many ways to milk their already paying audience, might as well go free and open up those money making opportunities to everyone. Honestly, it was the only way they could go at this point.

Er, wha? Do you have an old computer or something? Because I have just a basic year and a half old computer with an ATI 5770 and TF2 runs fast as hell.

By today's bleeding edge standards my gaming rig would be low-to-mid spec'd at best. But here's the deal, when TF2 1st debuted my PC had a single core and a measly GF 7600GT, and the game actually ran faster than it does on my system now with a dual-processor, significant GPU upgrade and double the RAM. I'm also know I'm not alone - check the Steam forums and you'll see countless posts about the degrade in performance in the past year or 2 by even people with some decent PC's. It's not that it isn't playable, it is, but the game has moments of serious performance drops. Maybe its me, but I have to wonder about a game based on such an old engine that actually has become more hardware demanding in recent years. I wouldn't mind it so much, but for the fact both that other Source game seriously outperform it on my rig despite having better graphics, a lot more polys on screen and as many players online.

Glad to see it went F2P, but I'd personally rather they kept it the way it originally was, minus the micro-transaction greed and with better performance.

more game features coming with Pyromania!

(no, no Def Leppard involved)

Day one reveals the new game mode Doomsday!

Quote
Doomsday pits BLU against RED, with only one team getting the honor of transporting a suitcase nuke full of recalled Mann Co. Australium to American monkeynaut Poopy Joe’s rocket, so he can blast off and hunt down Soviet space chimp Vladimir Bananas. It's the same spirit of competitive enterprise that stalled the moon landing by three years when Buzz Aldrin suplexed Neil Armstrong into a pile of folding chairs at Astromania '69! Both teams will attempt to get the necessary fuel up a preposterously slow-moving elevator and into Poopy Joe’s Australium-powered rocket to the stars.

I wouldn't mind trying out TF2 again, but am not sure how well I would do.  I stopped playing way before all the updates to the classes.

The steam forums are a-flutter about the "tour of duty" mode.  It looks like they are official servers that you have to buy tickets ($0.99) to enter, but you can get loot from it.  You can still play the new mode without buying tickets, but no loot.

Of course everybody hates it.

"Everybody" will hate it publicly, and yet miraculously tons of players will pay for it and Valve will make bank.  That's how these things tend to go.
