TF2 and you, part 2(Hehe that rhymes)

So TF2 issues it has been a while since my last post about this so for those who don't remember this blog is to bring up points about the overall quality of play on the Destructoid server. Today I have 2 points for you.

1 Uneven or unequal teams. Every time I find myself at the server I find that there is one team with the hardest of the hardcore and 2 extra people against a team of n00bs. WTF? That brings no competition and frustration to anyone who is forced to join the sucky team. try to balance out, see how good you really are.

2Melee throws. Whenever a match gets boring It feels like everyone tosses their weapons aside and runs up to hit you. I don't have a problem with this from time to time but really?! mid-way through every map. If you get bored rtv (rock the vote) and get a new match going.


I know these aren't really play issues but these things piss me off the most about the Dtoid server. so come on. also check out this if you haven't seen it yet.

A Week of Mourning

This week is a sad week for fans of 1up. A magazine which I believe featured many very in depth articles about gaming and a great staff has been shut down earlier this week, GFW or Games for Windows: the Official Magazine. I first heard about it in their podcast, which is apparently still going on. It seems as though this is individual to GFW and the editors are still employed for online articles. A sad day in the advancement of games journalism.   read

TF2 and You

Dear Dtoid TF2 players,

while playing on your many a time I have often noticed one thing, an ignorant forgetfulness or
notknowinglyness of many of the players. Now I am in no way saying that everyone is this
way
I know some people are super skilled and could kick my ass but some of you are being
retards. To help everyone out I have composed a list of 3 things you should know about TF2.
Please keep in mind that these are not good in all situations but in most.

1 [size=12] To stop someone from capping a point you can simply stand on
it. many people stand at a distance crying like a baby trying to not get killed. Instead run
headlong into the hail like the man (or woman) you are. Hopefully reinforcements will arrive
soon. [/size]

2 [size=12] Let the medic have the health! All the time I see two people, a
medic and another person, hurt, running for the same health pack and the person who is not
the medic takes the health. WHY? If the medic gets healed they can heal you, but if they die
you will be screwed later.[/size]

3 [size=12] Too many of any class if a bad idea. I slap myself in the head
when I enter the server and find like 8 people playing engineer. If you balance your class
numbers you can improve any team. [/size]

Soo feel free to tell me I'm wrong but more posts to come about TF2   read

Layden vs. Patapon

Kid Gamers

Hi, before reading this post please note this is my first post. It is also not really news related.


I want to tell everyone about a group of gamers that are mis represented. That group is younger gamers. I am 13 years old and freaking love video games. That is how I spend most of my time doing, Playing games. I think everyone should know that not all of us are half brained Halo fanatics. Many of us are but there are those who are not.
Personally I think Halo pales in comparison to games like Team fortress 2. Those games are amazing.

So to start off TF2 is an M rated game, so is Halo. I own them both. I don't trick my parents into buying them for me, I Tell them what is in these games and they decide weather or not the game is appropriate or not for me. I show them the ESRB rating and the judge based on that. I'm sure if I asked for GTA I'd be told no before I could finish saying it.

Now about certain laws banning kids from buying mature games. The average gamer is 33, right? Game developers know this and most AAA titles ( sorry can't spell tripple) take that in for account. Quiet frankly the some of best games are rated M.

Microsoft is a great example of a company that doesn't get it. They have now way for me, on Xbox live, to download M rated game demos on a child account. I have tried changing every setting but nothing changes.

Finally I just want to put to bed the fact that old games are not appriciated by the youth. I have *ahem* NOT downloaded some NOT ROMs from the NOT internet and love Megaman 2 and Crono trigger. So please remember that not all kids who play games are annoying idiots on Xbox live.

Love the Dtoid podcasts keep on doing great work guys.   read
