Team Fortress 2 – Heavy Update

Over on the Official Team Fortress 2 Blog they announced that the update for the Heavy would be coming on Tuesday, August 19th. Appearently, this update is the biggest yet for the game and includes a new game mode, 5 maps for this game mode, 1 additional map for the payload gametype, 3 new heavy weapons, and 35 (heavy) achievements, as well as a “special” Meet The. I really want the soldier and demoman to get this treatment.

[Update]: Valve just posted an additional post detailing the first of The Heavy’s new weapons. The Killing Gloves of Boxing give you 5 seconds of guaranteed crit. But with the trade of off a slower swing rate. They also posted all of the icons and names for the 35 new achievements, but give no explanation of what the achievements actually are.

TF2 sees a Gold Rush

Team Fortress 2 - Gold Rush Map

The new Gold Rush map, and Medic achievements have been added into the PC version of Team Fortress 2. Unfortunately, I’m having some problems with my CPU cooling right now so I havent been able to play it. But I look forward to it! (Also, I’ve been busy with MGO Beta and GTAIV).

Meet the Scout

I love Team Fortress 2. FACT. I actually just stopped playing like 5  minutes ago. It was pretty awesome to see that there was a new “Meet the” video.  This time its the scout! Enjoy!

Shawn Elliott Griefing Videos

If you’ve ever listened to the GFW podcast one of the highlights is often Shawn Elliott and his stories about griefing people in online games. On Gaf today there was a link to some YouTube videos that hes posted up. This one was my favorite that I saw so far. Its in Team Fortress two and he is messing with some guys and trying to get a girl to talk to him. Pretty funny stuff. If you play TF2 and have 10 minutes check it out.

Note: There is an age verification thing on the youtube cause there is some swearing. Kiddies beware.
