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.


Steam things are happening

Team Fortress 2 just randomly appeared in my games list along with an update for Half-Life 2, Episode 2.  TF2 install can’t progress yet, servers busy…lies, but the game is now marked as “Download starting” and the filesize of 5,716.3MB is there.  There have yet to be any updates to the store itself, expecting that in a few.

It is however getting late, I have other things to do, so the rest of the blogging will have to wait until tomorrow morning.


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.
