    In honor of the new Major, weeklong TF2 update "The Über Update", Valve has made it's hit Team based FPS Free for everyone with a steam account for the entire week![/p]

    I already have TF2, so this isn't as exciting for me, although alot of my friends have been wanting to try it, so this should be a great time to show them how fun the game is.
    Oh and also Meet The Medic will finally be released this Thursday along with the new update.

    I might as well see what all the fuss is about
    *downloads*

    If it's good I might end up buying it [​IMG]

    I highly reccomend it. It's a really fun FPS. And it's only $10/£6.99. Not to mention how the Steam Summer Sale is supposed to be next week and TF2'll probably be around like $5/£2.99.
    Also since you're a beginner I reccomend you check this out.

    Why thanks you [​IMG]
    However, if I like this, I might just buy the Orange Box, in it's entirety. [​IMG]

    Definitely do that, I bought the Orange Box about a year ago for 20 euros, and it was pretty well worth it. Portal is awesome, Half Life 2 Deathmatch is amazing and TF2 is off course, the most enjoyable title out of em all.

    Gonna have to agree with him. Also you save more when you buy the orange box. You save around $25/£17.96 if you buy them in the Orange Box opposed to buying them all separately.

    I've had this since the orange box came out. Played it for all of, 6 minutes. It really needs a single player tutorial level.

    Kick arse. I'll have to have another go. I'm not the biggest fan of co-operative games anyhows, but walking in and realising I haven't got the slightest clue and was ruining it for the others on the team made me give up quick and never go back.

    I was one of the ones that never got into the game... I mean, it was enjoyable back when it first came out and after the good updates, but now they've added so much junk it's not really the same game as before--there's a different outlook on the game with the content and direction they've turned to. Something I'm not just interested in :/

    But hey, as long as it's good fun for others!

    Even still, I would wait until the Orange Box is on sale again, as last time the whole box was going for $5.00. Last summer they had massive sales, and I'm guessing they'll do something similar this summer, so keep an eye out.

    I can see where you're coming from. But as someone who played for 2 years on the 360 version, I just cant help but love the PC version much more. And not to mention I find that all the new items bring in a new refreshing experience so the game doesn't feel same old same old. Especially when it's something as cool as this

    Don't worry guys! It depends on how I feel about this game. It's gotten good reviews so maybe I'll like it.

    Speaking of Coaching, TF2 offers a coaching program where advanced players can train new payers the basics of the game.
    So if you're a beginner, just request a coach to help teach ya.

    Oh hell no. This week's exam week for me, and I also don't have a working computer.
    Bad luck for me I guess. [​IMG]

    Had the same shit with Black Ops a few weeks ago. My exams were just about to start and Steam decided to give a free Black Ops weekend. That's just fucked up, so disappointed at that time.....

    I already have TF2 so I'm not too interested in this.

    Although this would be the perfect time to host a TF2 server (as part of the stream), as anybody with a Steam account will be able to play regardless of whether they bought the game or not.
