TF2... free? Meet the Medic? WHAT'S GOING ON HERE


Last night, Valve finally released a new video in the Meet the Team series, the second to last in the effort to cover all of the classes. I'll be honest, I was very eager to see a new one, and they really did a good job on this one.

Over the past week, TF2 was free for people to try out.It worked very well, a multitude of new gamers were seen playing it recently. In fact, it worked so well that Valve decided to make TF2 completely free!

With a catch, of course. Always with these guys.

If you're new to TF2 and decide you want to go get it, your in-game backpack will only be 50 items large. This is bad, believe me. Cause those of us who bought it get 300, and some people are still buying backpack enlargers. Also, we get a new hat which is called "Proof of Purchase". I'm sure you can guess.

Now I'm not saying all of this is bad, it's actually pretty awesome. New free players can buy a key from the store and sell it to someone, but then get their account access. They only cost 2.50, compared to the 20 that it used to cost. Good job, logic and good thinking.

Oh, and there'll be more cheating. Free accounts means you can make multiple. Hack, banned, new account, washrinserepeat.

Anyway, thanks again for reading. And please, if you're a respectful, fun loving gamer who hasn't played this game yet, get on Steam and play this damn game. It's free, you have no excuse.

  7. The one thing more awesome than TF2 is the fact it's free. God they're all so wacky, I loved seeing the medic being used for a "dating game" show at the last convention I was at.

    It was hilarious, since she kept saying she'd always be behind the bachlor, which'd prompt him to FREAK OUT AND YELL NO ONE GETS BEHIND HIM!

  11. When I heard it was free I instantly downloaded it! And indeed I am grateful for the game being free because I've never really tried it. So this is a good opportunity!

  12. To be honest it's kind of annoying that they made TF2 free in this patch, people who paid for it didn't really get enough to 'compensate'.

  15. A great opportunity for people to try it out. My only concern are massive amounts of hackers as they can just hack, get banned, and make a new account to cause havoc again.

  16. I downloaded it now it's free, but for some reason it won't work properly for me :( Maybe I'm just being impatient, either way, I can't help but follow a fellow gamer :)
