Team Fortress 2  



Can I interest you in this $100 Team Fortress 2 item?

Can I interest you in this $100 Team Fortress 2 item? photo



A $100 Team Fortress 2 item may seem absurd at first, but when you think about how much money gets pumped into the Mann Co. Store -- presumably a scary-high amount, says this guy who's bought nothing -- it's probably not so bad. Its name, "Something Special For Someone Special," is rather fitting.

But don't take it from me. Here's Valve's pitch: "It's ring-shaped, it's gift-wrapped, it's basically useless, and it's really expensive ($100!). In short, it's the most accurate simulation of an actual Valentine's Day gift ever made available to the public."

This thing can't be traded, but it can be gifted. Better yet, once it's sent, the receiver will be prompted with a proposal. Once accepted (talk about embarrassing if they don't), both of your names and the name of the ring will be broadcast across Team Fortress 2, and you get a set of wearable diamond bands.

You know, that image of internal meetings at Valve is becoming increasingly accurate.

Dance the night away with custom taunts in TF2

Are you a taunter? I'm not. Okay, well, I try not to be. But then developers go and design achievements around taunting X amount of times, and it'd be rude not to oblige them probably. Or there's some jerk in Awesomenauts who...more

I can't even play Demoman this well in my dreams

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.more

Watch Dogs is better with Team Fortress 2 characters

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.more
