Warning; TF2 blather, feel free to ignore!
Dude, they just announced one of the Scout's new weapons for his upgrade!! 'The Sandman';

You Scouts are gonna love this highly collectible bat that smacks baseballs at the other team, stunning the living crap outta anybody dumb, slow, drunk, mute or Australian enough to get in the way. The farther the ball flies before ricocheting offa some chucklehead's skull, the longer he's gonna be stunned. And guys who think they're tough because they're invulnerable? It works on them too. Now the bad news: You can't double jump when you're carrying this little beauty. On the other hand, double jumping never put anybody in a coma.
Annnnnnnnnd already people* are saying 'fuck you, Valve'. I wasn't into TF2 back when the other updates came about but I can imagine everyone bitched at the gimmick-ness of the Sandvich or the twinkiness of the Pyro's flare gun, too. Man, people will always find something to bitch about.

Of course, these people are complaining about a game they paid $10 for, that continually updates, constantly reinvents itself, and doesn't ask for a further penny in fees. Unlike WOW or City of Heroes or something.

ROLL EYES.

However:

"You Scouts are gonna love this highly collectible bat that smacks baseballs at the other team, stunning the living crap outta anybody dumb, slow, drunk, mute or Australian enough to get in the way."

People are always out to get us sexy Snipers. And goddamn it, I need a Sniper icon.



*Goons on the internet. This probably shouldn't be a surprise.

Haha. I only play Scout if nobody else is bothering to intel grab, or if I'm pushing little cart. XD I still got stupidly excited about this, though - I can't wait for a new 'Meet The' video and hope to God it's the Medic! (though I reckon it'll be the Pyro. We shall see!)

Oo, which ones do you admin on? I was tempted to apply for admin-ship at one of the servers I pretty much live on.

iO.. (It's Over).. iogaming.net

I'm pretty loyal to them, that's where I met Brent (playing on 2fort) and when we got married they sent us $150. Very nice people.

Oh man, meeting a guy on TF2 would just about be the coolest thing ever. (I appreciate that I have a pretty weird sense of what's "cool" :D) How sweet!

Haha, Scout isn't my favourite class but he's pretty close. I feel like Sonic the Hedgehog or something. However, I play him completely NUTS - I swear I start channeling the dude and become a complete dick while playing him, too. XD Basically, it's a case of "RUN RUN JUMP JUMP OH SHIT OH SHIT JUMP *dead&*" with some shooting involved.

I was so excited when I read about his update, though. I swear I'll need gas or something when they announce the Sniper pack.

Oh man, yeah. When I heard 360 couldn't get updates I was SO glad I finally have a PC that can handle it. Honestly, my old PC was OLD and I was very, very loathe to give up on her because everything was exactly as I wanted it. I'd already fallen in love with the Sniper from his 'meet the' video but forgot all about TF2 until randomly, just before Christmas, I found the fandom and lots of lovely fanart and fanfic. It pretty much sealed the deal and made me get a new machine - just so I could play tehe danged game!

Medic is my second favourite class, I still don't have the ubersaw though. I can't wait for his 'meet the' video. I hope he's suitibly creepy in it. ;)

Just a quick note to mention that I'm working on getting Windows and TF2 installed again! However last night I accidentally removed a portion of my hard disk by mistake so PROGRESS IS DELAYED while I try to recover it.
