Sunday was the Grammys, and while sadly it’s not an event for kind-hearted old ladies to have a chocolate chip cookie bake-off, it’s supposedly one of the premier music events of the year.
That being said, this ye...
[Before we begin, a moment of silence for amazing TF2 video maker kitty0706 and the equally amazing Monty Oum from Rooster Teeth -Mike]
Today’s post will be fairly short, but important. Due to scheduling conflicts, "Bet...
I've contemplated returning to Team Fortress 2, if only for a few matches, but I'll probably get my ass kicked. After watching this skillful highlight reel from Demoman player Kaidus, I'm sure of it.
This guy knows what you're going to do before you do.
Welcome to Team Fortress 2sdays. It looks like your old pal Chilly (that's me) is gonna be the next victim guest on the always popular Q&A show, Between 2Fort, hosted by the one and only Shadow. Now, I don't want to steal any of Shadow's thunder, so I'll let him give all the juicy details:
Welcome to Team Fortress 2sdays! Shadow is back with us this week with some recent updates to Team Fortress 2, as well as his plans to bring back his always entertaining series "Between 2Fort," where he interviews both Destructoid staff and community members while they try not to get shot. (F.Y.I - they get shot. A lot)
Take it away, Shadow!
I hope all of you had an awesome New Years and I want to be the first to welcome you back to Team Fortress 2sdays!
Since it's the start of a new year, we may have some people here who are unfamiliar with TF2sda...
Short post today, getting all my holiday stuff done before Christmas.
From myself and the entire Destructoid community team, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy Festivus for the rest of us.
I want to take a moment to apologize for not getting the post up last week. I hate when I miss a post, it drives me absolutely bonkers.
Shadow is back with us this week to talk about a new update that, well, may not have been as awesome as many were hoping. It's probably best to let Shadow tell you all about it, since he definitely knows this game better than I do.
Don't cry, Rain. Our own battle has just begun.
I just want to watch stupid G Gundam all weekend with its nationally stereotyped gundam. It's like a 4th grader designed them all after reading through a world atlas.
That or just play Gundam Battle Assault 2.
[Dtoid community member Solar Pony Django shares with us what gaming has given him. Its something most of us can relate to in all sorts of ways. Want to see your own stuff appear on the front page? Go write something!&...
Welcome to Team Fortress 2sday, where your best shot, could land you a million dollars. Okay, that last part may not be exactly true. To be honest, it's not even remotely close to being true.
Now that Thanksgiv...
I know I'm a bit early here but, with Thanksgiving just a couple of days away, I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you for being, well, awesome.
When Andy Dixon initially asked me to be part of the Commun...
I guess I wasn't the only one excited about the whole, landing a rover on a moving comet thing, seems as though our very own TF2 guru, Shadow, was impressed as well, and he has a few words on it, as well as Kerbal Space Program!
Take it away, Shadow!
Sorry for missing last weeks post, things around the Platt house have just gotten a bit busier than I was expecting and, well, I forgot.
Looks like there's going to be another mouth to feed around here, and the sounds of little feet, eventually running all over...
Here's Shadow with some words of wisdom:
Just the other day I was curious as to what Team Fortress 2 would do for Halloween this year. In fact, the TF2 event is one of the reasons why Halloween is my favorite holiday! Well the update, detailed here, h...
Welcome to our spooky edition of Team Fotress 2sdays, please leave your limbs at the door, as you'll have no need of them here...muwahahahahahaa.
Anyway, Shadow is here is to talk about all the scares and bone-chilling details for the Halloween edition of Team Fortress 2sdays, take it away Shadow:
Happy Tuesday, or as M. Bison would say, oh who cares what M. Bison would say, seriously. Is he even relevant anymore? I think not. More like, M. Forgottenaboutbecauseheslame.
Anyway, welcome to another edition of Team Fortre...
Well, it seems as though everyone has their pick in for the new Borderlands game. Me? I think I'm going to skip this round, I've just about had my fill of Claptrap and the rest of the gang, Shadow however, has dibs on a new, not yet announced DLC character, here, let's let Shadow explain:
When I clicked on this blog post for The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, my eyes went straight to the second image -- specifically, the sobbing Heavy. Love it. Next, they shifted to the Scout wearing a hat that looks like a giant ...
Happy Tuesday!Welcome to Team Fortress 2sdays, where every week a bunch of Dtoider's get together, shoot each other in the face and generally have a good time.Shadow is here with an update, take it away Shadow,
Happy Tuesday!Seems like everyone these days is all about that Smash Brothers, and who can blame them really? I know I'll be picking up my copies day one. Sure, I may not be very good at it, and I may never win a match, but the thought of Nintendo characters beating the shit out of each other is just, well, awesome.You know who else is excited for Smash? Shadow!
Happy Tuesday!Welcome to another edition of Team Fortress Tuesdays! Shadow is back with us this week and he's here to talk about all sorts of stuff, such as Destiny, Smash, How I Met Your Mother and more, take it away, Shadow...
Happy Tuesday!Welcome to Team Fortress 2sdays, were we all gather 'round the fire and then hunt each other down on crazy and wacky maps, using crazy and wacky weapons.If this is your first time visiting TF2sdays, welcome. If ...
Welcome to Team Fortress 2sdays, where all your fantasies come true* Shadow is back this week, and he's looking to bring in some new maps for all of the TF2 faithful, here he is with all of the gory details**
Zoey. It was Zoey!
I would have never guessed she was the third mystery character teased for Super Time Force Ultra following Pyro and Saxton Hale from Team Fortress 2, but it makes sense in retrospect. The Left 4 Dead star b...
Not much going on this week. So, who's excited for (insert game here)?
That's pretty much all I got. Oh, if you're bored, you can go and adopt my avatar for PAX this year, or you can write your own blog and have someone take your avatar to PAX with them.
Well, looks like I'll be playing Super Time Force all over again when it hits Steam. Why? Well aside from the new challenge levels and alternate-dimension powers, there's three new playable characters. Two of which are from ...
I have a confession to make. I have yet to see Guardians of the Galaxy. I know, I know, "where the hell are your priorities?", look, I've been busy moving and stuff....
Luckily, Shadow has had a chance to watch, what I understand may be Marvel's best movie yet, take it away Shadow.
Welcome to another edition of the always exciting, Team Fortress 2sdays. Shadow's pretty excited this week, and he has good reason to be, let's see what he has to say;
Streamtoid has returned! Tonight I will b...
Shadow is taking a break this week, so you're stuck with me. Tonight's gonna be a great night over on the Team Fortress 2 servers, we have the one and only UAEK Crash prepped and ready to answer you questi...
I absolutely love this "Between 2Fort" interview series. I've watched each one so far and have had a phenomenal time with each and every one. This is saying a lot, since I can hardly bring myself to listen to any podcast. Something about watching people have to answer questions while trying to not get shot, just rubs me all the right ways.
Team Fortress 2 is still chugging in a big way, and the latest bit of official content to drop is the Mann Co. maps, which are now available by way of Early Access. You can volunteer to test the maps for Valve by clicking the...

We've got a few announcements to make this week. Swishee is stepping down as the owner of the Destructoid Team Fortress 2 server, and Streamtoid is making its glorious return. Shadow has been working his butt off behind the scenes to help get all of this going, so it's only right to let him tell you all about these exciting changes.
It's over. The Steam summer sale has finally ended. Personally, I'm glad it's over. I spent way more than I said I would, and I have a feeling I would have kept going. 19 games. That was my haul this year, nineteen friggin games.
Out of those nineteen games, how many have I played? Four. I'll eventually get around to playing the other fifteen games. One day.
STBlackST did a terrific job with this Team Fortress 2 short, Hat_Dogs. It's a riff on Watch Dogs' "hack everything" mentality using characters we actually like.
Impressive, and -- with the inclusion of that bread line -- timely.
Welcome to another exciting edition of Team Fortress 2sdays! I may not be much of a Team Fortress 2 player (mainly because I'm awful at it), but I am super happy that this series made a triumphant return here o...
I'll assume everyone has already seen the Team Fortress 2 animated short that Valve put out yesterday and have been very excited to jump back into TF2. Today, the Love & War update has been more detailed, with new weapons and GIGANTIC balance changes.
Let's chat about them, shall we?
As part of the next major Team Fortress 2 update, Love and War, Valve has released a new short film called Expiration Date that's nearly 15 minutes long. And it's good! Real good.
The update will add new taunts to the game, ...
Welcome to another exciting edition of Team Fortress 2sdays. In the event you missed it last week, our very own Andrew S. Dixon Esquire 3rd was on Between 2Fort, talking and answering questions while trying not to get shot in the face (not unlike his night job.. ohhhh..).
