The TF2 Unlock Teacup-Storm

I've been out of the TF2 scene for a few months now, as all that focus on achievement-whoring and increasingly technical play turned me off the game somewhat - paranoia I couldn't keep up with The Kids as much as anything else. However, the combination of a masterful marketing effort and the promise of new toys that didn't require incredi-skill or soulless grinding to attain…

Sniper & Spy Updates Online, TF2 Free Weekend

And so it comes to pass, the Sniper/Spy update is live, TF2's gone free for a weekend, and the price for keeping it has halved. Here's what we learned. The Sniper got his Huntsman bow, then he got his Razorback shield. Things got weird, Spies started appearing, and then the Spy had two watches revealed, The Cloak And Dagger and The Dead Ringer. We then…

The Spy, Meet The Ambassador

Confused about what's going on with Snipers and Spies and updates? Yeah, me too. Tuesday was originally thought to be the launch day for the Sniper update. Two unlocks were revealed, along with a new game mode, and then the switcheroo happened. Now it's a Spy update, two unlocks were revealed at once, then yesterday the Meet The Spy video made an encore appearance, along…

Act Surprised: Official HD Meet The Spy

Just a quick note to say the official version of Meet The Spy is now available on Valve's Spy Update pages, and available to download in HD via Steam. There's also the traditional unveiling of the achievement names, with their descriptions to be added tomorrow. Also, kudos to Valve for their good humour over the weekend's accidental early leaking of the video via YouTube, with…

Sniper Update Day 3: Things Get Mysterious

Valve seem to be messing with us. As the Sniper update rolls out, suspicious things have been happening. Suspicious, sneaky, back-stabby things. Spy-like things. Yesterday saw the reveal of a new game mode (the one hinted at in the background during the Scout update), the Payload Race. Two carts, one per team, uphill. Today brings us the Sniper's second unlockable - the Razorback - a…

They Will Stick To The Wall: Sniper Update Day One

Valve have spun the giant wheel of classes and this time it's settled on the Sniper. He's getting his update "in the coming days". This means the familiar pattern will take place: over the next few days we'll be told about his three weapon unlockable upgrades, new user-made maps that are going official, and a big pile of new achievements. Today's announcement: a bow and…

RPS Does Community Service

Over the last year, one of the things we've noticed at RPS Orbital HQ is that we have some readers. At the last count, more than three. It seems that some of the loyal and most handsome of them have gathered their pocket change together to get themselves an unoffical semi-official official-but-not-quite RPS TF2 server. Oh yes. As the RPS Steam Group broke the 1000…

Heavy’s Lighter Fight: Arena Mode

The Heavy update info-flow continues to inundate us, this time with information about Arena Mode. But what's Arena Mode? "Arena features smaller maps that play out in shorter periods of time. The round ends once one team has no players left in the arena, or when the central capture point has unlocked and been captured. Rounds tend to be very fast and highly competitive, with…

Natascha! – Update

Update - The achievement descriptions are up, and they pretty much confirm everyone's favourite guess for weapon upgrade three, the "Sandvich". The Konspicuous Konsumption achievement requires that you "eat one hundred sandviches," which makes them seem a pretty solid bet. Sasha has a playmate. Valve's cunning trick of stringing out their update announcement to forty-seven days is working, as proven by today's Heavy Update Post:…

TF2 Pyro Pack Almost Ready

Good news for Pyro fans (apart from those who fear change, but love forums) - Valve are almost ready to release the next big Team Fortress 2 update. Which of course brings with it the new Meet The Sniper movie, as we oh-so exclusively revealed last week. This includes the introduction of a new unlockable weapon for the Pyro, the Axtinguisher. (Best name ever?) Dishing…

Compare Us To TF2 Say Battlefield Heroes Devs

If you ever want to make an MMO developer mad, and why wouldn't you, keep mentioning World of Warcraft when you're talking to them. It's the big unmentionable, the competition they know they'd have no audience without, but want to pretend doesn't exist. Even the fine folks at EA Mythic, they behind the genuinely comparable Warhammer Online, tend to refer to Blizzard's beast as, "Certain…

Valve Announce Gold Rush For TF2

Some breaking news before RPS heads bedwards: There's a new Team Fortress 2 map available. And more, as part of the free Gold Rush update. Valve explain, "The Gold Rush Update introduces the new Gold Rush map and Payload gameplay style, the first set of unlockable weapons, and a new set of achievements for the Medic." If you don't own it and that's not enough…

Boink!

At last - Meet The Scout: We have a very good idea who you are, Gametrailers. Seems a bit tighter than the, to my eye, slightly iffy Demoman trailer. The Scout-as-jerk angle was the only way to go, really, and it works - certainly, I really, really wanted to see him take a beating by the end of it. Which is, of course, very much…

The PC’s Samus? Pyro’s Gender To Be Revealed

Relaxing with the new PCG: UK podcast, I was entirely unsurprised - if only because Dep-Ed Edwards had told me about it beforehand - to hear the Master of Stealth Tom Francis reveal a little gossip hot from Valve's Robin Walker. Firstly, they're still doing the class movies - the next was to be the Medic, to roll out with the class achievements, but it…
