Not sure who's seen this, but it's the new knife item for Spy: The Black Rose. Comes from a promotional deal with Alliance of Valiant Arms.

Now, the game itself, in my personal opinion, is boring. But I want this pretty pretty item so damn bad that I'm willing to play it until I get it. Also the item is untradeable, so it's my only avenue.

I remember doing the same thing with Spiral Knights, but the item was much less pretty.

How do you all feel about this new item? And how about Valve making it so you need to play other games in order to get Tf2 items?
>> No. 11935
I think it's great, especially for getting lesser-known games some deserved attention. Though I prefer when the games in question are free. I can't stand the pre-order bonuses on some games.

But I do admit AVA is pretty lackluster... even more so since it requires nProtect to run it.

Black rose looks nice, except the game isn't available in my country, and i hate gift wrapped dirty items (except HOUWAR and others which are expensive).
Its also exciting to play games and receive items as reward, eventhough if they are only reskins or ugly cosmetics. I wish there would be even harder games to get even better stuff than just regular items have, like play 1 match, receive Black Rose in TF2 or play your first game in Spiral sallet, get fancy hat as reward. I wish those would be more like this: Play New Vegas for 200 hours, receive awesome reskin for random weapon in TF2, which is based from weapon of New Vegas.

Tell me what class-specific hat you would love to see on another/all characters. I personally want to see anyone in the dixie.

Texas Ten-Gallon/Hat With No Name on Heavy, because a friend of mine has an adorable Texan Heavy OC.

Stockbroker's Scarf on Medic and Spy because a tie over a tie is redundant and redundant things are funny.

What are some good servers you guys play on?

I'm fed up with the ones I've been playing on for the past 8 months, and I'm looking for a new home. Preferably one that's regularly populated and has a welcoming community.

I play on Aliento's Micspam Kingdom. If you like micspam, and the occasional mix of pubbies and Highlander-level players, and overall silliness and fun, then it's a good place for you.

Railbait. Most importantly, their servers are actually full from 1 pm to 3 am (eastern time) and they don't run trash like fake players or bots.

I can vouch for Aliento's as well. It's relaxed, there's always people online, and it's one of the few servers where I can frequently get Top 3, even with my shitty connection.

What is your opinion on the RED/BLU teams when it comes to characters?
Do you think they're the same person, clones, different characters, ...?

Valve always manages to confuse me, like for example, RED Soldier's roommate is Merasmus (the Halloween magician guy), but in the last smissmas comic, BLU Spy told miss Pauling BLU Soldier's roommate was a magician.
Same goes for both snipers, since they both have a scar from the cheek to the nose thanks to RED spy.

I can understand that characters look the same because that would mean they'd have to make different skins for each team, but sometimes I wonder if they make it on purpose or if they simply messed up?
>> No. 11875
A headcanon of mine is that all the mercs are different people, but look and act the same because the Mann brothers think that having a Russian Heavy Weapons guy or an Australian Sniper somehow gives them an advantage over the other brother.

As for both RED and BLU Soldier having a magician for a room mate, I think Merasmus just switched sides.
>> No. 11878
I think the world could, for all intensive purposes, be a very literal version of the palette swap idea.

Both teams are identical, to the point where both Scout's Moms look identical, there's two Merasmus-es, etc. And they both think they're the original one. It's a deconstruction of the whole idea, taken to a ridiculous extreme. Wouldn't be OOC of Valve to do a thing like that.

Is there a place for "The Bureau of Communication" pieces in this respectable site? It's not fanfiction, it's not fanart, so I doubted if I could share with my fellow gentlemanly peers. I have a couple more...

What? Valve gave a random guy who has cancer a community spine chilling skull, which was 154 level unusual skull sometime ago?
Okay, Valve is spoiling people who have cancer with fancy stuff.
I have cancer, so where is my f*****g Unusual Max Head with exploding supernova effect Gabe?

Really? Are you fucking kidding me? He's spoiled just because Valve treated him something nice while he was sick? And you want to benefit from your PARENTS dying?

Kilo, lock this thread. It's turning into a massive bitchfest that doesn't need to happen.

I was hoping for some maturity, but obviously that's wishful thinking. Next time I'm sticking to my gut and locking any thread with overt bitchiness without waiting to see how you handle yourselves.

Hats that, no matter how much you dont (or do) like hats, you feel like you just absolutely and entirely need.

There are a few scout hoodies floating around, but these two are my favorite. They would go perfect with my tossle cap and some earbuds.

There's also this, which is from some Canadian restaurant. Apparently you buy a bag of Doritos and they'll dump meat and pickles and cheese and stuff on it.

I swear Spy wrote the new Johnsonville Brats commercial.

It goes something like "Your mom knows when you're faking- [sound effect of kid coughing] so she knows when she's eating fake sausage. Try Johnsonville Brats."

Sorry if bumping this is not okay, but I wanted to share this story.

Today in my English class, our teacher asked me how many kinds of hats I knew.

I could name at least 20, all more or less because of the hats in this game.

Now my teacher thinks I'm some sort of hat nerd ...

Shame it's not a brown eye, or I'd be tempted to make a Merasmus joke. People have also said it looks like Wheatley, which I can totally see too.
