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.…

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…

CS: GO Operation Phoenix Rises With 8 Fan Voted Maps

I used to review Counter-Strike maps as a teenager, for free, for fun, for fansites. If you'd have told me then that thirteen years later, I'd still be writing about them for fun, but as a career, I'd have said, "Well, obviously." What else was I ever going to do? Global Offensive's new Operation Phoenix pack (or, "Pho3nix", but I'd rather not) let's you play…

Steaming Pile: Steam Tags Added To Steam Beta

Valve do like their user-generated content. They've updated Steam with Steam Reviews, Steam Greenlight and now Steam Tags, which let players label Steam games with keywords. Those tags are then made searchable and used to recommend game-types you might like based on your playing history. Unfortunately, much like previous additions, it turns out the internet can't be trusted. The system is already being used to…

Sticker Bomb: CS:GO’s New Update Adds Gun Stickers

Counter-Strike is a lot like high school. There are a lot of cliques. Fights break out in the hallways. Everybody is concerned with looking cool. And now, with Global Offensive's latest update, people are able to decorate the covers of their books (guns) with stickers. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive now has stickers. This is a good thing. This is a very good thing.

Skins Alive: CS:GO Gets Realistic Weapon Skinning Tool

Counter-Strike is one of My Games. One of those games that made me. One of those games that caused me to run up a huge phone bill when 56k modems were a thing. One of those games where I can still close my eyes and get a little jolt from imagining the rattling fire of an unsilenced M4A1. In the weirdest way considering that it's…

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…
