    I totally didn't forget to bookmark the new thread and thusly completely forgot about HonC, guys

    Ugh, it would be nice if TF2 would stop crashing so I can finish this damn Powerhouse contract.
    Also, TF2 birthday! Noisemakers forever!

    If someone has a good group gimmick that could work, I'd be down for arranging it again.

    Past tense. The motherfucker already did it. I'll see about getting it for Friday.


    Also..

    So there's a hidden easteregg room on the new map.

    Here it is in full bright:

    Those backpacks look awfully familiar to me:

    (this is from TFC)

    I could just be connecting it because it's green, though.

    Last we heard in the comic, the Medic was looking forward to smashing the TFC crew against his old team.

    I'm just curious as to whether or not they have any grand design for TF2 besides a dumping ground for undeveloped ideas. And hats. So many hats.

    Shit, what is Valve even doing these days besides sucking up Steam money? There's been Source 2 rumors for years now, and yet another E3 went by without a mention. The last big game they did was Dota 2, which wasn't even their own thing.

    I managed to miss this before, but Source 2 isn't a rumor, they have the beta client up for Source 2 DotA2. It looks purty.

    I'm still half convinced HL 3 will be out holidays this year. Less confident than before, but it could line up with their VR release. How's that for a killer app to release with it?

    actually in DOTA's case it looks exactly the same as the old engine, as far as I can tell. All the engine changes are under-the-hood things.

    You know, it's funny, but I'm pretty sure the QWTF Heavy *could* actually throw ammo packs. I'm not sure on that, though, it's been a *long* time.

    Sadly can't pull up the old website to check, due to GameSpy shutting down and whatnot.

    you sure? I'm pretty sure there were massive texture reworks for the reborn beta. Like if you put it on ultra the grass and the trees don't look like ass anymore.

    does it look different on ultra? I can't run it on ultra so I wouldn't know, on mostly medium settings it is indistinguishable from the old client to me

    why waste money making a game when they make billions off of the community making hats

    they're definitely making half life three

    it just has a small team because half life isn't interesting

    With what I hear about Valve's management style, I generally picture people getting hired on, all eager to finally help make HL3 a reality, and then six months later go "nah fuck this" and design pets for dota for a year.

    Source 2 is specifically designed so that old machines can still run it but new machines aren't limited because of that, so yes, there is a wide gap between medium and ultra

    That was humour?
    That's precisely how I feel every time my backpack fills up with crap and I can no longer play TF2 without deleting something.
    That Jerma video was a brilliant analogy.

    The newest issue of the comic, the one that's coming mid-august and certainly before september?


    e: alright... twitter embedding isn't as simple as pasting the link?
    Well, Jay says the comic is coming out on Monday, the 31st (before midnight)

    ee: well, shit, turns out it shows up after you refresh

    Eltorro64Rus has issued another one of his absurd, mildly disturbing, yet hilarious TF2-themed GMod videos. This one shows uncharacteristic narrative coherence.

    Well this happened. So, I just ordered a 24 slot Chicago based server to host all of my maps + some other customs + stock maps. I get non-stop "IP?" comments posted on my videos/ workshop maps, so I can finally give them something.

    Plus, this way I can keep the most rabid of nerds away from you guys.

    Well that was fast. Still needs configuring and all that, but:

    Also I could use a better name. Preferably one with UEAKCrash/ Crash and Nerds in it. Any ideas?

    Stay true to your TF2 roots. :rotate:

    Also I get a ~25ms ping to that server which is 1/3 what I get to HONC so that should turn me into some kind of god.

    Yeah that name works. Good call.

    I get a 40 ping on it, I was hoping to have better since there's only a damn lake separating me from Chicago.

    Granted a big fucking lake, but still.
