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

Ding. Ding. Ding.
Jan 28
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.

Team Fortress 2sdays: Grappling hooks and powerups

Happy Tuesday! 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!

Watch Dogs is better with Team Fortress 2 characters

Jun 25
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.

Back in the glory days of Futurama came the brilliant "Hell Is Other Robots" episode that saw bender going to Robot Hell after committing some sins.
