A beginner's guide to the Team Fortress 2 economy

In-game economies can be scary. Without the proper knowledge of just how everything works, anyone can be taken for a ride and shortchanged. When Team Fortress 2 introduced the Mann-Conomy in September of 2010, the game was never the same. S...

Meet the Family, a taste of Source Filmmaker vids to come

Jeeze! Valve's Source Filmmaker was just released a couple days ago, and already fan-made movies are popping up! Well... not quite. YouTuber TheDKer made "Meet the Family" over the span of a year using an older build of SFM leaked back in ...

Meet the Pyro, whine about it keeping its mask on

After years of waiting, Valve has finally released Meet the Pyro, introducing us to the sugar-coated world of Team Fortress 2's masked flame fan. As you might expect from something fans have been aching for ... it was met with a significan...

Team Fortress 2 'Pyromania update' happening this week

Team Fortress 2 ARG is getting bananas

Whenever I see Steam updating Team Fortress 2, I get extremely excited. I immediately check the patch notes, the Steam forums, and the subreddit. Recently, a new game mode has been teased -- the community is calling it MvM or "Mann vs. Mach...

Behind the hats, Team Fortress 2's short, funny story

Did you know that Team Fortress 2 had a backstory? Me neither. Apparently Valve's been fleshing out via comics since 2010. It's oddly interesting, and brings order to one of the most chaotic kill-a-thons in modern gaming.  Still w...

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

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, "...

Team Fortress 2 community mods look spook-tacular

C'mon, I'm allowed one Halloween pun at this time of year, right? Anyway, Team Fortress 2 has had plenty of official Halloween updates in the past, whether it's been special themed maps or limited edition hats. Now a group of modders are re...

Team Fortress 2 celebrates Manniversary with an update

It's been a year since Team Fortress 2's Mann Co. Store went into effect, and what an impact it's had. In that period of time, community item creators have earned some $2 million for their creative efforts, according to Valve. And since thi...

Happy 15th birthday, Team Fortress

With this birthday celebration, Team Fortress is now presumably the same age as those people who call me swears when I hug them with my knife. Rather than us give Valve presents, the team has goodies in store: a hilariously annoying/awesome...

Pre-purchase Deus Ex for sweet gear in Team Fortress 2

Argh, why was I just interrupted from my riveting session of Team Fortress 2?! Oh, because there's been an update -- one which adds support for Deus Ex: Human Revolution promo items among other, less visually appealing things. As you can se...

Massive Bethesda sale on Steam, rad themed gear for TF2

In honor of QuakeCon 2011, Steam is running a Bethesda promotion starting today and carrying through Sunday. It's better if you just go to the landing page for this sale event rather than have me list everything, which would be ridiculous. ...

Team Fortress 2 unites with WETA for new Soldier gear

Ah, this is what those so-called Grockets were about. Valve has collaborated with WETA Workshop's Greg Broadmore on Dr. Grordbort's Victory Pack for Team Fortress 2. I rarely play as the Soldier, but space guns and mutton chops are quite th...

Strange Grockets show up in Team Fortress 2 update

In the July 18 patch for Team Fortress 2, we got a handful of the usual bug fixes, and some unusual Grockets popping up in the distance. We have no idea what these are, or what they mean. Valve has a history of doing crazy things like this ...

Valve reveals 'Meet The Medic' outtakes

There's been a long wait for the latest installment of Valve's "Meet The..." Team Fortress 2 videos, but it was worth it. The German medic's video was one of the highlights of the series and now Valve have posted some behind-the-s...

Team Fortress 2 free-to-play whiners demand a refund

Valve made a big splash last night after announcing that Team Fortress 2 had become free forever and -- as you'd expect from any Valve announcement -- entitled fans got severely butthurt and are now demanding their huge $20 investments back...

It turns out I don't really want to Meet the Medic

Shortly after we published our post on Team Fortress 2 going the free-to-play route, Valve's "Meet the Medic" video started making the usual rounds. As expected, it is of high enough quality to warrant its own separate post. And even beyon...

Next for Team Fortress 2: Free-to-play status

For the Über Update festivities, Valve set up Team Fortress 2 with week-long free status. I thought this was a smart idea, but not entirely unexpected, since Valve has a history of pulling such stunts. Making the full game free, foreve...

The Heavy becomes The Spy

This is just great. It's like Gmodexpo crossed Adventure Time or Rocko's Modern Life's insane randomness with Team Fortress 2. I love the Internet. I think I just Machininma'd myself. [@asalisbury's Twitter]

Team Fortress 2 gets its most ambitious update this week

On Thursday, "the biggest, most ambitious update in the history of Team Fortress 2" will go live. Valve is calling it, appropriately enough, the Über Update. In addition to the Medic finally getting his own "Meet the" video, day one --...
