Team Fortress TwoOoOOooOo Halloween Events Return

I wouldn't say 'boo' to a ghost. That's rude and, worse, trite -- like saying "Aha!" to Steve Coogan. No, if I e.g. met a ghost rattling chains I might ask "What's shaking?" Top gag. My problem is a short temper with ghosts. The last time jangling disturbed my sleep, I woke the whole block yelling "Hey! That's enough of your ghost nonsense! Get outta…

Latest Team Fortress 2 Comic Tells Origins Of Sniper

"Hey, remember Team Fortress 2?" I think to myself, sometimes. I played that game every day for months, squeezing rounds into lunch breaks and evenings till eventually I lost interest. "The big updates slowed," I explain to myself. "The steady stream of community content made each release feel like less of an event, and eventually time moved on and everyone's focus moved elsewhere, right?" Right.What…

Machinamazing: Saxxy Awards Winners Declared

Whoa. Hey there. Sorry, I'm just coming round following the Saxxy Awards on Wednesday. I don't even remember Thursday. There I was, seated between Morrissey and Prince, then I have a vague memory of Mozzer whipping out a hip flask that smelt like paint stripper and... nothing. It's a blank. I don't even know who won. I awoke in a cemetery this morning.The Saxxies, of…

Saxxy Awards: Voting Now Open, Productivity Now Over

Each year, the Saxxy Awards rally the Source Filmmaker community together to make funny, dramatic, wonderfully-animated short films. The best time to watch those videos is when the winners have been announced and the list of submissions has been whittled down to the very best. The second best time to watch those videos is right now, when all the submissions are in, viewable, and you…

Valve Time Force: Super Time Force Now On PC

Super Time Force launched on Monday, while we were off enjoying the holiday (I sat in a park in St. Albans in torrential rain with a bottle of wine, because reasons), so have a reminder that it's out.The time-twisting shooty platformer's port from Xbox is fancied-up, as one would hope. Capy Games bunged in a new mode and more levels, renamed it to make a…

Team Fortress 2’s Workshop Now Accepts Merchandise

Team Fortress 2's Steam Workshop is a font of creativity, introducing all manner of new models and maps to the now seven-year-old multiplayer shooter. But what if you're tired of new guns in-game and instead want more real world materials you can stick to your wall or wrap around your meatform? Valve are now accepting Steam Workshop submissions for proposed TF2 merchandise. Anyone can submit…

Filmmakers Sourced: Saxxy Awards 2014 Announced

Every year Valve hold the Saxxy Awards to encourage and round-up the very best Source Filmmaker creations, and every year the submissions are almost solely set inside the Team Fortress 2 universe. That's perhaps because they're Valve's most expressive characters and because TF2's manic world is most easily bent towards drama and comedy, but for the just-announced 4th annual Saxxy Awards, Valve are encouraging submissions…

Mann Oh Mann: Valve Creates Early Access TF2 Servers

Early Access? For a game that's been out since 2007? Yes, that is, in fact, a thing that can exist. Valve has decided to leave Mann Corp's doors ever-so-slightly ajar so that fans might run around on Team Fortress 2's magical murder playgrounds before they officially hit live servers. So it's a series of test servers for maps, essentially. Details below.

Bread Or Alive: TF2 ‘Love And War’ Adds Bread Weapons

It's day two of Team Fortress 2's latest hyper-elaborate update, Love and War. Yesterday we got love in the form of dances and other taunts/expressions, but today, well, I'll just let Futurama handle this one. This isn't just any old regular war - the sort you might find at the bottom of the bargain bin at your local War Mart - though. No, no, this…

TF2 Kicks Off ‘Love And War’ Update With… Dancing?

A mysterious countdown? Some teams? A fortress? I'm not sure if there's a soul in the world who doesn't know what this means by now: new Team Fortress 2 update. The latest multi-day reveal-stravaganza is called Love and War, and it's kicked off its grim march not with new weapons or maps or colors other than red and blue, but rather, um, dancing. Also other…

Plant It: Rust Getting Farming, TF2-Like Item Creation

Rust is already a purring, slurring engine of human depravity, but there's no denying that it's all rather barebones at the moment. You can explore, you can build a house around other people's houses and take them prisoner but mercifully feed them tuna every couple hours, but Garry (of Garry's Mod fame) and co have much bigger plans for the future. At this particular moment,…

Of Heals And Heels: Team Fortress 2’s Two Cities Update

OK, time for a truth bomb: I haven't played Team Fortress 2 in age-- *KATHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMSPLURSHHHHHH* Oh jeez, wow. That was actually a regular bomb lightly sprinkled with truth. My bad. I'm gonna need to un-bury John and Alec from the wreckage momentarily (Graham was out, and Adam is immune to explosions), but quickly: I haven't played Team Fortress 2 in quite some time, but I…

Scream Fear-hiss Boo: TF2 Comic Threatens New Update

I don't want to make any jokes in this post, because doing so would make me feel like the rubbish, nervous compère trying to entertain the crowd before an amazing comedian, for instance Bruce Forsyth or Jim from Neighbours, comes on. TF2 is a funny game, with funny promotional material around it. It is definitely funnier than I am. Funny like a clown, yes. For…

Comic Timing: Team Fortress Celebrates Its 17th Birthday

Get your secret decoder rings out, make sure you have access to a librarian with a murky past, and would it kill you to put on some tweed? Team Fortress celebrated 17 years of being Team Fortress on August 24th, which Valve completely missed. To sort-of-but-not celebrate this occasion, they've made a new comic starring everyone's favourite sky-diving CEO, Saxton Hale. Part one is long…

Be Gabe Newell In The Team Fortress 2 Update

My Team Fortress 2 addiction, which is now mostly in hand thanks for asking, used to be fueled by Valve's updates. The magnificent teases that they were, they'd hold my attention with week-long pieces of performance art. The mighty clang when everything finally dropped and was unwrapped was the best thing ever. Now, with the community contributions happening in plain sight in the Workshop, that…

Incoming! Team Fortress 2 Update Of Fixes And Maps

There are some things that need to fixed in Team Fortress 2. Valve explain: "Unfortunately, as players' tactics and abilities have grown, so have the bugs and exploits in some of the maps. For example, since Badwater shipped in The Heavy Update, TF2 has added more than 140 weapons to the game, some of which introduced new capabilities: sentry jumping, rocket jumping with no health…

Profit Storming: Valve Shares Revenue With Toolmakers

When they're not spinning around and around in their expensive chairs, weaving hats, or thinking up other ways to not make games that people want ("Shall we all got to Hawaii this week, or shall we crack open that HL3 design document?" "Aloha! Aloha! Aloha!"), Valve's brain drones are at least attempting to create a community of people that can earn a living from making…
