I’ve been playing TF2 again lately. Here are some of my exploits:
Some of you may have noticed a new building going up rapidly in Teh Joshenlands. (here.) Want a tour?
The original TF was probably the best game I ever played. I was reminded of it when my login fortune this morning was:
<Knghtbrd> 2fort5 sucks enough to have its own gravity …
Heh. When I started playing Quake Team Fortress in 1994, 2fort4 was the default map. Everyone played on 3dfx Voodoo cards and Glide was the new thing in graphics. Having transparent water and mirrored surfaces was so damn cool… When 2fort5 came out there were upgrades to the base structures as well as enhanced gameplay – snipers could call in airstrikes!
I remember pipebomb traps, detpacks, MIRV grenades, nail grenades, and proxy mines. OH! And the 20mm autocannon option for the hwguy! And how the medic’s primary weapon was an axe that healed instead of damaging. 😛
Does anyone still play the original Team Fortress anymore? If anyone wants a server, I’d be willing to host. SavageChicken has some spare cycles.
So here’s the deal, I’m in a Cultures of Online Gaming class. I’m going to need three online games to play through out the semester. I have no idea what to do because the professor asks that we step out of our comfort box and play something new. I have played a lot of games. List:
World of Warcraft
Star Trek Online
Second Life (I HATE IT!)
I would like a game that doesn’t suck and doesn’t cost a lot. Text based are okay, but I wouldn’t even know where to start looking.
