Team Fortress 2sdays: Change

3:00 PM on 05.06.2014 // ChillyBilly

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.

The issue with Mike's article isn't that he doesn't like SMB. His tone makes it feel like his opinion is presented as fact, and the article goes way off track from the title.

The last bit made me laugh for some reason. [img][/img]

My silly joke comment on Mike's article looks really mean next to all the bitter ones. Why are people so accepting of my unpopular opinions, but not his?

I'm still watching this over and over. Dude is tremendously talented, to say the least. Just wait until the solo and breakdown. [youtube][/youtube]

Nice. Destructoid articles no longer scroll on my tablet or phone. Who should I email about this?

Anybody like Rhythm games? I found a really cool one on, I likes it, I likes it a lot! Although you gotta use Firefox due to lag caused by chrome unfortunately.

Finding name brand candy in Chibi-Robo Zip Lash brings an unexpected joy that reminds me of finding Duracell batteries and other real products in the first Pikmin.

Super Meat Boy must be one of the most difficult platinum trophies to exist for Playstation. Beat every dark world section without dying? Ha, okay.

Attention Craigslist users: No one wants your ps2 sports games no matter how much you repost them/drop the price, unless it's NBA Street, Def Jam Vendetta or SSX3. The rest are better used as drink coasters.

If you imagine this song as Kojima speaking these as parting words to his creation of Metal Gear, it's actually pretty heat breaking...

One thing I've learned about the Japanese fighting game players: They are willing to play any fighter no matter how good or bad it is, and they don't shit on the game or the community behind it.

I killed Darth Vader by crashing a spaceship into him 10/10

Watched the first ep of One Punch Man and I was not disappointed. It seems like they'll be adding their own stories into it because I don't remember that fight in the last 5 minutes in the manga. I'll have to reread it to make sure.

What the hell is Sega using in the printing of their PS3 game manuals? I wouldn't be surprised if some dumb kid stuck one in a plastic bag and started huffing the fumes to get high.

Been playing MGO obsessively, still can't find anyone in their right mind that uses the Hush Puppy. So of course I'm gonna be the dumb bastard that tries.

Why don't we have more games that use filtered 3D models to creat faux-pixel art? It's such a cool, smooth style, but you never see any games using it.

Oh lawd. Next Saturday, Gamestop will have three hour access to Tri-Force Heroes. Nintendo, really wish we could just get normal demos from you more often, please!

I made this. Want one? [IMG]HTTPS://[/IMG]

Star Wars Battlefront is pretty good. Except the beta is basically a demo with nothing in it so that upsets me. but it's still pretty good.
