Team Fortress 2

If you have not yet played Team Fortress 2, but you enjoy team based first person shooters, then you’re missing out. It’s quite the good game. There are nine player classes, each with its own strengths and weaknesses. There isn’t a whole lot of overlap between the classes either, forcing strong teamwork in order to win.

I’d really like to see this game be our bread and butter for gamefest 2008. At a price of $30, I think it’s a fairly reasonable price for such a great game. If your budget can swing it, I’d suggest spending $50 and buying the entire orange box. The orange box includes the single player Half-Life 2, HL2: Episode 1 and HL2: Episode 2 games, as well as Portal. Every single game in this box is excellent. Half-life two is fairly well known. Portal on the other hand, you may not have heard of. It’s a first person puzzle game, with physics being the solution to most of the puzzles. You have to see it to believe it. Not only is the concept fresh and fun on its own, but the world you’re immersed into for Portal is very well realized and enjoyable.

Anyway, there are two ways to get TF2. Either download Steam and buy it online (steam will deliver the game to you over the internet) or else go buy the orange box nearly anywhere that software is sold. I highly recommend it.

  1. Ahhh, Gamefest ’08!
    I’m already excited.

  2. Ok,
    The trailers for TF2 are hilarious. I love one with the engineer playing the guitar.

  3. Heh, yeah. The intro movies are great. They are both informative and hilarious. (:

  4. So let it be written. So let it be done.

  5. Hey,
    I just picked up the O-box for $30 on sale! What a great deal. TF2 is great. Also, the box I bought came with two registration code sheets(an accident) so I’m guessing I could bring the box with me and we could load it onto someones computer. Plus, if I log onto my steam account I can download the game to whatever computer I’m on. Anyone want a free copy of HL2? I have a gift copy also. Overall though, I recommend getting the O-box for yourself.

    My steam name is tman98. We should play TF2 some evening.

  6. Travis,

    Excellent! What a deal. I’ll add you to my friends list in steam, and I’ll try to give you some warning next time the 004 crew is getting together for TF2. We can meet on a server.

    (also cool that you ended up with an extra registration code. Yay for free games!)
