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 won't stop spa...

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.
