Team Fortress 2sdays: Change

Change brings opportunity

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Change is never easy. Nobody likes it and we all fear it (well, a lot of us do). Sometimes though, change is a necessary evil, something that many people won't realize until well after the change has already happened.

Luckily, some of that changed has already proved positive, as Spencer and Phil's Patreon campaign is well on its way to their 5-days-per-week goal. You people are amazing! So I say we all celebrate and go shoot each other in the face with big, cartoon weapons. Read on for a note about this week's events from TF2 community server admin Shadow.

First, a message from Shadow:

Over the weekend a lot happened around here at Dtoid. A lot of good people were let go, and it's always disappointing to see people get laid off. So instead of my usual quick blog, I'd like to instead give a shout out to all those who are no longer with Destructoid as of this weekend, and tell you lovely folks ways to help continue supporting them in their new endeavors. First and foremost would be Spencer and Phil starting up their new channel, just yesterday they have nearly raised enough to meet their funding goal. Conrad has left, although if you wish to still see more of his masterful mustache you can always catch him on his YouTube channel. While Joshua will be missed, you are more than welcome to support him in his writing over here. Harry can be followed on his Twitter, and Casey Baker will be hanging around in the comments and Cblogs. If I've missed anyone I do apologize. To everyone who was affected by layoffs this weekend, I honestly wish you all the best of luck in whatever you do next and if you ever want to blow off some steam, the TF2 server will always be open and more than happy to help.

Thanks Shadow. It's never easy watching people who we admire move on, regardless of the reasons. This was a very emotional weekend for a lot of us out there, and I think everything that has needed to be said, has been said. Before we get to the "what is TF2sday" section, I'd like to leave everyone with this quote:

Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next.

-Gilda Radner

So what is TF2sday?

Every Tuesday, a ton of folks from all across Destructoid hop on to the community server to play, talk, and shoot each other. It's usually a pretty crazy good time, and almost always involves various melee only matches between a handful of classes. So feel free to jump on and join us sometime!

New to TF2sday?

Don't worry, you're not alone! Any and all Dtoiders are welcome, so please don't be shy. If there is ever something wrong, or if you need to contact one of the server admins, please see below, all admin names and links to their Steam profile is listed.

Looks like I'm not gonna be able to 100% Tearaway Unfolded until Monday at the least. I'm definitely writing about it this weekend and am trying my hardest to get my screenshots off of my PS4 (especially hard as I don't do social media anymore)
Darth Wachen avatarDarth Wachen
I've never done a blog before, so I may as well try one with a review of Stranger of Sword City....well, when I get entered into that contest of course

Shakedown Hawaii is giving me good GTA vibes. I missed the topdown GTA games when they were a thing. I have to decide what platform to get it for since it's coming to 3DS/Vita/PS4/PC (probably the Vita version for moi).

You think your art sucks? Here's the rule34 I made of Larx yesterday. Look at it and despair.

Hey Dreamweaver? If you think your art sucks, you should have a look at my magnum opus. It's of Cloud from the popular game, Final Fantasy: All the Bravest.

I never thought this would happen, but here I am. all of my 700+ pokemon gone in one day. My cart stopped working and there's nothing I can do. I quit, you can't just rebuild all that. Time to find something else.

Tom Collins is a pretty great drink, and well suited for poutine. consumption

It may be because I've been drinking but... We need some dung beetles from ark for the front page. Move that dung on out.

Does anyone know how to get PS4 screenshots onto a PC without needing a flash drive? I don't have a spare.

This is an example of how bad my drawings are. I honestly think drawing stick figures would've been easier on the eyes. :( The worst thing about this image is that this was made after I got BETTER. Trust me, you don't want to see my earlier stuff. T^T

So I received a mysterious box in the mail today. When I opened it I was blown away...The friends I've made here on Destructoid are amazing (More pics in the comments).

Woe is me. This month's Cblog theme is basically an excuse to draw pretty girls, and here I am with no time.

A very Bloodborne-y moment.

Back in tip-top shape guys, feel waaaaay better than I have done these past few weeks. Plus my voice sounds slightly raspy now, meaning my Batman impression has been upgraded. Apologies to Gaj and Solar the most, my male-up kisses go to you: Xxxxxx

Wait... Is that...? Could it be...? It IS! Gravity Rush's Kat has taken a break from rushing and graviting to sacrifice some souls in Soul Sacrifice Delta! Which isn't even going for $8 on the PS Store right now! What a steal!

Finally got my in game time down to under an hour in Super Metroid. I'm pretty happy about that.

Unpopular opinion time: I not only consider Kanye West to be one of my favorite rappers of all-time — yes, I'm being serious — but he's one of the very few people in the world whom I'd consider to be a role model. I truly wish he would notice me one d
