What’s happened to Team Fortress 2?

TF2 really has changed quite a lot since I last played the game seriously.  Must be towards the end of 2007.

Now when I come back I find there are new game modes, new maps (that was expected), hundreds of achievements (nearly 350?) and the ability to change the load-out…with stuff that seem like they are thrown around completely at random.  I am in no way saying the changes are a bad thing and actually find the new game mode, pushing bombs around a map, quite fun and a great addition to the game…it’s just odd that the weapons which previously have been limited, are now not.  Some of the weapons I have come across make some things easier for certain games and others harder, so the choice of what you use really does depend on how good or bad you are with the original weapon.

One thing I do hate and has been quite noticeable is the free weekend.  Considering its been 3 years since I have played the game, and almost as long since I have done any serious Keyboard + Mouse based gaming, I find it rather odd to be located often in the top few spots on the scoreboard.  Hopefully that will correct itself shortly and I will need to “work” my way up.


Dangerous High School Girls in Trouble!

Well, that’s it for steam updates, Team Fortress 2 and Dangerous High School Girls in Trouble.  I’m really not sure this game is for me but its got an OK metacritic score, so I might make the effort to do some research into it.

Little bit disappointing there wasn’t a bit more, seeing as there were no releases last week, never mind.


Team Fortress 2 for Mac?

Well, the updates are again, later than usual, but its very possible team fortress 2 will be in todays list of games.

Big things are happening RIGHT NOW at Valve. Things involving cultivated tree-fruit. BIG things. Things that rhyme with “grapple.” Things that rhyme with “Speem Gortress zmavailable on the Babac.”

There are also 3rd party developer games due, not sure what at this stage, I don’t even recall seeing any rumour posts across the several websites I view, so just need to wait and see.


What is Killing Floor.

When I first saw footage for the game, it seemed like it was just Left 4 Dead.  It was described in very much the same way, although a slightly different back story.  After playing the game for less than 5 minutes its quite obvious its less like Left 4 Dead and much, much closer to the Zombie Nazis mode featured in Call of Duty: World at War.

Both of these games feature a wave of enemies per round. Both allow you to level-up by purchasing better weapons as the game progresses (assuming your good enough).

Although in Killing Floor the game ends after some many rounds, this isn’t an end in the same sense as L4D.  L4D you progress through a story with the possibility of survival at the end.

The game does contain more challenging enemies, each with different weapons.  When your just starting, these are definitely something to stay away from.  It’s a great game, but you really do want to start with some friends, hopefully people who will stick together and play in a co-op style and actually help each other out.


Call of Duty: Black Ops Trailer

The new Call of Duty: Black Ops Trailer (game due for release 11th September 2010) is out now on the official site. Apparently all of the footage is actual in-game footage.  There are also some nice screenshots available here.  Quite an impressive looking trailer, have to wait and see some of the changed and improvements made over the current game play and game engine.
