I Miss Watching Other People Play Games

I've realised I miss watching other people play games. That's perhaps a strange thought, given the ubiquity of Twitching live-streams and long plays on YouTube - but that's really not what I mean. I mean sitting in the same room and watching as someone I know plays the game. It's just not something that happens to me any more.

Team Fortress 2 Marks Halloween With Alien Invasion

As the march towards Halloween gains pace (seriously, where has this year disappeared to?!), Team Fortress 2 [official site] has launched a month-long Invasion event, spilling its community-curated guts in the form of new maps, weapons and items. The launch trailer is typically TF2 in its spectacle and flair and can be viewed without the use of 3D glasses inside.

TF2 Update Turns Into Man Vs Servers

Just when I thought I was out they pulled me back in again. I'd uninstalled TF2 and everything was going well: other games were getting attention, my girlfriend showed me this thing called 'Outside', that didn't have people setting me on fire or asking me to give them stuff, and then Valve announced Mann Vs Machine. I could just give it a try, yes? I…

TF2Maps Preparing A New Payload Delivery

Any new Team Fortress 2 Payload maps are relevant to my interests. My interests being defending my themed house from carts of explosives while wearing a very silly hat. I rarely stray from Badwater Basin, but when I do it's for more Payload fun. So I'm eagerly awaiting the entries of the newly announced TF2Maps.net Dynamic Payload competition, to add a little excitement to the…

Undeyeing: Team Fortress 2 Halloween

Team Fortress 2's sinewy neck of content has been slashed open once more, pumping forth a bloody torrent of hats and features. It's the third annual Halloween update, and it brings full-body costumes for every class (including a fantastic "teleporter gone wrong" Brundlefly for the Engineer), an update for classic King of the Hill map Viaduct turning it into Eyeaduct, which features dimension-jumping slipgates and…

TF2 Aussie Christmas Upate Is, Er, Medieval

As I wake up to a thick blanket of snow that I'm too ill to venture out in, and curse the skies for their endlessly cruel mockery, I do spare a thought for the Australians. In fact, a good half of the planet lives under the hegemony of the romanticised "white Christmas", as their Peanuts cartoons and idyllic snowglobes contradict the lovely sunny day outside.…

Scream Fortress: TF2 Gets NPC Boss Monster

Grab your Jarate bottles, it's about to get all Halloweeny. In the second, and thus now annual, All Hallows Eve update for Team Fortress 2, the game has added its first ever NPC boss monster. He's the Horseless Headless Horsemann (indeed, a long lost member of the Mann family), and only appears in a new spooky map, Mann Manor. He's randomly generated, and DOESN'T HAVE…

The Best Defence Is The Best Defence

Dan Kelly alerts us to the (apparently) now fixed bug which slipped in with the last TF2 update, which allowed you to build as many sentries and dispensers as they choose. "There's something very cool about watching 40 sentries simultainiously bleep and take down a heavy," he notes. You can follow the chaos on the TF2 forum, with lots of people doing their own ludicrous,…

Spy & Pyro: A Love Story

Worried about our slow news day (is it?) Dan Dixon alerted us to a TF2 themed video of quite remarkable quality. And so we now present it to you, below. It's by Andrew Kepple, and Flash animates a tale of love between the Spy and the Pyro. Along the way there's about 400 references to various games and cartoons, along with some fantastic animation that's…

Soldiering On: TF2 Propaganda Runners-Ups

You remember the TF2 Propaganda compo, yes? You remember the winner, yes? Do you remember the runners-ups? If you do, you've been to the TF2 blog before we posted this. If you haven't, go look, and prepare yourself of future remembrance of the awesome array of talent shown by the TF2-community. There's just some brilliant stuff and I salute them all. The top image is…

I Will Make The Parrot: Contribute TF2 Items

For many years, I have had a fantasy. My fantasy involves the Team Fortress 2 Spy, with a deformed parrot perched on his shoulder. Who could resist such a thing? A mustachioed bigamist, that's who, and they should be shunned. But I've tried to forget about it, knowing it could never be. Except now, news reaches me - via blues via the TF2 blog -…

Team Fortress 2 Updates! Demomen Bleed!

The Demoman/Soldier war is over. And to the victors, the spoils. The final score? 6,406,065 Demomen deaded by Soldiers versus 6,372,979 soldiers deaded by demomen. The Soldiers could be gracious in victory. But where's the fun in that? Yah-boo, etc. But let's not dwell on this drubbing of the inferior demomen - let's concentrate on the new goodies in the update. New maps! Crafting! Stuff…

GSW TF2 Propaganda Poster Round-Up. Yes!

A quick one on this, as it's just fun. You may know Valve are running a propaganda poster compo for the current Soldier/Demo-man war. The winners will be around eventually, but Game Set Watch has done a round-up of some of their faves. Go gawk. We should start demanding icons of Horace the Endless Bear be offered unto us. Oh - the image I've used…

New TF2 Update: That’s It, It’s WAR!

And now the latest TF2 update has begun. This time it's Demoman and Soldier, with the usual routine in place - we'll see three weapons for each of them, new maps, new oddities, achievements, and probably some bloody hats, revealed over the coming week. We'll be determined to wait a few days and put all the updates in one post, and Valve will do something…

TF2 Cheaters Don’t Go To Heaven

TF2 has recently suffered a plague of some of cheating. Rather than cheating to win matches, players have been cheating to gain in-game items, using "external idling applications". The drops came at random, so people hung around on specifically designed servers until they'd collected what they were after. (I think.) Valve have announced this Will Not Do, and anyone who has accrued items this way…

TF2’s Classless Update: Hats & Maps

A surprise new TF2 update has arrived, and it has absolutely no class. In fact, it's about as daft an update as you could hope for, with Day 1's offerings giving you eighteen new hats, and a new Arena map. "After setting a new standard for Lack of Class in an FPS with the addition of Jarate (the jar-based Karate)," explains the TF2 blog, "we've…

TF2’s Sniper & Spy Get Milestone Achievements

Here's a spot of news. Team Fortress 2 has received an update tonight that means the Sniper and Spy unlockables can now be received through gaining achievement milestones. This works alongside the controversial new random-o-drops that enable people to get new items out of the blue, blue sky. The change comes alongside a collection of fixes for bugs and exploits that were brought in with…
