MLG Video Showcase: Team Fortress 2

July 7th, 2011 by

Four years ago saw the release of one of the most anticipated sequels of PC gaming history. Four years on Team Fortress 2 is still alive and kicking, albeit a vastly different experience from the old days of vanilla TF2. Valve in their infinite wisdom have now made TF2 entirely free to play, bolstering the full ranks of still active players. Complimenting the nine different classes are now different weapons, items and most importantly hats that you can craft, find or dip your hand in your pocket to pay for via microtransaction.

To celebrate this move, Valve have released a new “Meet the …” video, the Medic getting some much needed attention this time. Be sure to check the other classes, but you can find the new Medic video below.

For those not convinced by the prospect of a free game with dedicated servers, multiple game types, massive fan-base, hundreds of items and possibly the most stable online experience I’ve ever had, perhaps this video might just swing it for you.

    I tried this game out for maybe 2-3 rounds when I first picked up the Orange Box.
    I just recently started playing this again and I have to say I’m totaly blown away at how robust this gaming experiance is. This is probably one of the best supported and insainly well ballenced games I’ve ever played.
    There’s such a fantastic variaty of maps.
    I probably spent about 4 hours last week playing a medival mele map called Dagroot Castle. The best part about that map is when you unlock the third checkpoint the castle gate starts rolling up and Bagpipes start sounding off all all of you feed in through the choke point.
    There’s also a haunted house map which I’ve seen on the TF2 Wiki. Can’t wait to play that map.
    Speaking of which. The TF2 Wiki is a great place to learn all the ins and outs of TF2. Because so much great stuff has been put into the game since it came out, it can be a little overwhelming when you first take it all in. The Wiki is a great reference tool for bootstraping into the TF2 experiance.
