Exclusive: TF2 Developer Commentary

If you’ve explored Team Fortress 2, you’ll have listened to the developer commentaries explaining their thoughts on the game design and so forth. But you’ll have noticed that missing is their thoughts on how RPS’s Alec Meer plays the game.

Finally that gap has been plugged. Today, to accompany our Team Fortress 2 interview Part One and Part Two, and our Valve Compo, is a bonus treat in the form of a modern “internet video”. Herein you’ll get some properly useful tips from the game’s developers.


Check back tomorrow for Part Two of our exclusive interview with Robin Walker and Charlie Brown, and prepare yourself for RPS reviews of Episode 2 and Portal on the 10th.


  1. FringeRock says:

    More baseball bat kills! that’s what i say

  2. Alec Meer says:

    I tend to avoid using the bat, purely because I really, really enjoy shooting people in the back with the scattergun.
    This is stupid. Trust me, I know.

  3. essell says:

    Verrrrrry quiet audio… but good.

  4. Jim Rossignol says:

    Seems ok to me – Charlie is a bit quiet though.

  5. FringeRock says:

    “Seems ok to me – Charlie is a bit quiet though.”

    that seems to be the norm though right? Step in with an important one liner, then step back quietly? I like him already :o)

  6. Jim Rossignol says:

    Aye, Silentbob style.

  7. John Walker says:

    essell – I think you might have your speakers down too low : )

    There’s no game sound, if that’s what you’re trying to hear.

  8. essell says:

    Nah, I meant the commentary!

    I was using headphones [good ones] at work, and had to turn them right up… but evidently it was just me, and I was probably missing something :)
