Saw these Real slick TF2 cosplay photos on Kotaku this morning. The first one is just incredible in how they've managed to land the look of the game with real materials (I image photo filters might have been used to help simplify color as well).

So um... yeah. TF2 is now completely free to play. No I'm not joking. Launch Steam and if it's not on the front page then just find it in the games section. I highly recommend you download it if you haven't gotten it yet.

I haven't played the game in forever but I do know that there was a neat-o map I had found that was great for practicing on. It let you set bots to run forward on this walk way and you could make them do some random stuff as they ran across the map (they don't fight back, they just run forward though you can set them to shoot but again they won't target you specifically). Would be great for fooling around and getting used to the game. Additionally I know at somepoint they were fiddling around with adding real bots. I played a game awhile ago to try them out and they were far from awesome but did a marginally decent job of playing the game. It's probably better then diving right into the shark tank and picking a server at random to get owned on. Course that's how I learned to play but bots will soften the blow and let you try out all the classes and you won't have to deal with people. Anyways, if I can find that training map I'll post a link here. It has been a long time.

But yes, IT'S FREE TO PLAY NOW. I wouldn't be against playing it for a game night if anyone's interested. Can throw the bots out there to play with us so we don't have to deal with random folk.

Also, in case you didn't hear, MEET THE MEDIC:

Meh, I have the game, I just didn't enjoy it. I'm not much of a competative gamer, though.

Well except for Kitty of course.

Well if we play we could just turn on cheats for our server and turn on 3rd person view. I really don't care about stats or anything. Then again, maybe that didn't work for her if we tried that before.

Hooray!

And while it sounds cliche, I think I'll try out the medic first.  Something about boosting/helping my teammates out seems like it might work out for me.

Cliche nothing.  Medic is one of the best classes in the game.  I've seen footage from more than one TF2 competition where they had to restrict the use of Medics because too many of them on a well organized team just does painful things to the enemy team.

Don't get me wrong, that's not to say that other classes can't be as game changing.  A good Spy can completely turn the tide on an enemy defense.  A good Scout can capture points that shouldn't be capture before the enemy team can respond.  A good Engineer can lock down a control point or thoroughfare like nobody's business, especially several of them working in tandem.  The thing about the Medic is being game changing as a Medic is fairly easy - right click on the guy you don't want to die, stay close enough for the Medigun to do it's work, and try not to die yourself.  The hardest part is that last bit - the night dying yourself.

But in all seriousness, last time Dominion and I played this game a bunch we would goof around with classes and when we said "Nope, EFF IT TIME TO WIN" We'd switch to a Medic + Heavy combo and pretty much single highhandedly turn around games. 

Medic is solid.  Deal with it.

Though I suppose yes - you are a doctor... making it Cliche.  Oh well.

All this talk of it makes me want to play it again. If anyone wants to play it in general, not just for a game night (if we play it, we don't have to), I'll be up for it. Servers will no doubt be crazy full with it now being free so I guess now is not a bad time if you're interested in getting the hang of it since there also no doubt be plenty of other new people to the game trying things out. I'd also be happy to just chuck up my own server for people to play on with it adding some bots or something.

Thankfully they didn't unmask him/her.

I know half Internet was wanting them to unmask the pyro for it to "surprisingly" be a girl. And then, you know, they could have an excuse to make sexy pyro stuff and wank off to her. Thank you Valve for sticking with the silly!
