Team Fortress 2 and You

I'm curious, how many people in our forums own a copy of TF2, or are planning to make a purchase of the ever popular Orange Box from Valve?

Because in Telltale San Rafael Branch, there has been a lot of recent playage of TF2. And we are looking to open up a server for the TTG team and forum members, so i was just curious to see how many people would actually give a hoot. Holla back at me yo!

    Did they get rid of the medic's ability to infect people? That was my favorite thing to do, next to conc jumps.

  • Ahhh... I remember many great late nights of sneaking into enemy respawn's and infecting everyone.

    One of my favourite things I used to do with a friend was sneak into the enemy respawn in murderball (think that's the map) and build sentry guns. There weren't any defensive guns that would kill us so we could just sit in there and catch people in these cycles of death/respawning.

    I love the way TF2 looks though. I remember when they first released screenshots of the the way the game was originally gonna be. It looked like another Counter Strike game which was sad. I'm glad they scrapped it.
    I just watched one of the TF2 trailers and I am drooling. I love how they make light of the soldier rocket jump. It's neat that in the original game it was a technique that players deveploed with the class (I think). I also love how they made this more like a cartoon which really suits the game. I don't think TFC was originally meant to be like that, but it just turned into this hilarious non-serious game.

    Ya the way that TF2 was originally planned out, was a very serious tactical shooter. Where one player was the commander who had a tactical birds eye RTS view of the battlefield. And his job was to place buildings and helpful structures for the team, and lay out routes and paths. It got scrapped because people weren't co-operating. But it sounded like a fresh take on online FPS'.

    And sadly, they got rid of the medics ability to infect AND conc jumps. But the game is balanced very well in regards to power vs speed. There is a class for everyone. You can suck hard at FPS' and be at the top of the ladder. Classes like Medic allow noobs to just heal teammates from a distance with the medic gun, and get support points when the person you're healing kills someone. You basically get a point every time you do something good for the team. The scoreboard doesn't display kills.

    Everyone should get the game. Then we could have forum matches ;)

    EDIT: And actually we do have a Steam Community page, but I was told that it was only for the Telltale Team. You'd have to bug jake or someone ;) Some guy already made one for fans, but I don't think he's really into managing it, so someone should make a real one. I'll join! Hit me up on steam.

    Heh! The medic can shoot syringes at people, but I Don't know if they can infect. Conc grenades are gone. Fortunately the game is still really fun. Most of the things that they cut out, in my opinion, really help streamline and define the classes better, so people are now all doing their jobs instead of lobbing grenades at each other left and right.

    It's not just screenshots or trailers either, the game looks utterly amazing. The animations, art direction, everything is top notch. And it plays beautifully.

    Sweet thx for the add! And ya, when i go back and watch the first 2 trailers (not the "Meet the..." ones) all of the animations you see the characters do are in game. Those are all gameplay shots! Totally awesome. The game has seamless animations that blend together with whatever the character is doing beautifully.

    Ah well, guess I'll be a soldier then... looks like they kept the rocket jumps.

    Dammit, now I have to figure out if I'm going to get it for the 360 like I originally planned or for the PC.

  • I think of the Incredibles everytime I see screenshots.

    I don't know if anyone has heard of this mod for HL2 but it just recently got finished:

    It's pretty much like an updated version of TFC. Looks pretty neat, but I'd probably still go for TF2

  • Money is a little tight right now - I'll need to wait untill christmass.
