I learned of this off a friend who is obsessed with Sonic games. Supposedly, the Team Fortress car is a bonus car only for PC users. After listening to the characters, I'm unsure if the same voice actors were used as Pyro's sounds off and Heavy's kinda matches with that from the Poker Night at the Inventory's tone, but at the same time, doesn't. I wouldn't be surprise if Sega uses their own VA's to fill in instead of the original VA's to save money, unless however the contract made between them and Valve allows for the original VA's to voice in lines for the game.

If anyone can do further research to see if our guys are confirm they are or aren't would be of help. I'm probably not going to get this game regardless as I suck horribly at racing games.

So uh yeah, got to play this game today. Its a rather fun game for what it is, but I enjoyed the first game in this series more...

In regards to the TF2 folks, its an ok appearance. Very disappointed about the original VAs not being in this one, but the Spy replacement voice is okay. Heavy's VA is so-so, and Pyro... well. Its a thing. Their all-star move is indeed Spy, but in a better looking jet than what he usually flies for the actual flight segments, and he can shoot missiles at other players. Too bad for Heavy that the hovercrafts are the worst racing mode - however there are ways to balance out your vehicle after gaining XP from completed races, so there's that.

Its very surreal to play as Spy in stages like After Burner and NiGHTS whilst he's smoking his cigarette and doing his crab taunt sometimes (the cigarette part is rather heavily implied by the gestures of the hand while you're controlling him).

Pic is best I could do atm for Spycrab, it happens randomly so I can only catch the tail end of it...

>>13647
oh correction, its not a different jet. Bad lighting in stages, etc.

Also Heavy will call out for Medic if he gets fucked up too badly in races - neato.

Apparently, Gabe Newell confirmed a fifteen-minute TF2 movie. Supposedly they had originally planned to make a 90 minute movie, but gave up because it was too much work.

http://www.reddit.com/r/tf2/comments/16ejku/in_nerdist_podcast_gabe_newell_claims_a_15_minute/

What do you guys think?

True or not, I'm pretty sick of hearing people say that a movie might ruin their headcannons.

TF2 is such a big, open univers. Even with the cannon stuff, it's so easy to shape and make "your own".

Also, isen't that what OC's are for?
>> No. 13603
Considering it was only sort-of announced on Nerdist and word spread from there, my prediction is we'll get an official announcement/ARG stuff sometime later this year, with the movie being sometime in 2014.

Maybe in time for TF2s 6th birthday?

I don't know. We're all guessing at this point, but if it's a prequel, I hope we find all the mercs being recruited in outlandish ways (Why did RED/BLU put a miniature TV in your toilet? BECAUSE FUCK YOU THAT'S WHY)
>> No. 13605

Oh god, an origins video would be great. Seeing the mercs where they started. I'd love something like that.

The Secret Santa Exchange is an event in December where artists and writers in the TF2 fandom exchange gifts. All participants create one drawing or short story based on their giftee’s prompt and receive a gift from their Secret Santa in return.

You can see last year's gifts here:
Art: http://tf2chan.net/dis/res/11026.html
Stories: http://tf2chan.net/afanfic/res/9426.html

Gifts:

Artists:
One drawing equivalent to your usual standard of completed work, coloured or greyscale (must be finished beyond a sketch/line art). Gmod and SFM are allowed, but please make sure the image is of high artistic quality. You can add your username and a link to your online gallery/tumblr/website in the final submission e-mail if you don’t want your gift to be anonymous.

Writers:
One finished short story of at least 1000 words. Please have it beta-read/run through a spell-checker before submission. Use BB Codes for style changes: [i*] and [/i*] for italics, [b*] and [/b*] for bold, [u*] and [/u*] for underlined, [s*] and [/s*] for strike-through, remove the *s. Stories must be submitted as a .txt file or a Word 2007-compatible document. The full content of the document will be posted, so only include your username and/or a link to your online gallery/tumblr/website if you don’t want your gift to be anonymous.

Please don’t upload your Secret Santa gift to other galleries/sites before December 25; it’s supposed to be a surprise.

Yes, it was a good holiday season full of trial and errors for the Secret Santa event. I enjoyed working on my prompt, now just waiting on mine as I got orphaned so just a much longer waiting game for me.

Regardless, happy holidays TF2Channers!

I see the mercs as more combat-sexual than anything else. They definitely get much more animated when there's killing to be had. (Just listen to the Administrator on Payload missions when the bomb is about to reach the final terminus.)

Update: Now that I've used the vaccinator for more than five minutes, and have gotten used to watching damage types and switching resistance, I've got some brainpower left over to think about my übers, and holy socks this is fun. It's not that powerful of a medigun, but the amount of strategy involved is hnnnng. I've only been using this thing for a few hours, but I can already feel my concentration improving.

So I've come to a conclusion. Forget the Scottish Resistance analogy. It was a shitty analogy anyway. The vaccinator is like a Demoknight set: It's [probably] not viable for serious gameplay, and lameasses will complain every time they see it [moreso, however, because Medics aren't allowed to have fun] but it's exciting and using it every now and then keeps you sharp. So it's my new favourite pub toy.

Have fun waiting for one to drop.

I was in another fandom previously where I think the vast majority of the gay porn (at least on the fansite I frequented) was written and drawn by lesbians. It doesn't really surprise me anymore.

The past few days have seen a massive rash of engagements on TF2, and I have no idea why. No, don't tell me why. We have to preserve the mystery. All I want to know is if you've been seeing any lulzacious engagement announcements. And if you have it would be nice if you told us what the announcement said.

Today brought us 'The TF2 Community has accepted Gabe Newell's "A Flaming Homosexual"'

So, how many of you writers are going to be doing this? If enough people are interested, we could start a tf2 group.

(yes you can write erotic novels)

I recommend a book called "Making Shapely Fiction" by Jerome Stern. It discusses some basic rules of writing, general plot outlines, and character types that you can build from.

Other than that, I suggest you read as many fiction and nonfiction books and short stories from as many genres as you can. Then find what you like and start coming up with ideas and putting them to paper. From there, it's a matter of practicing your craft.

Again, I must emphasize that writing must be something that you enjoy, first and foremost. Doing it for any other reason really isn't worth the effort.

Do you already have a full account on Steam? If you don't, then definitely put $5 into your wallet and buy something from the Mann store.

Last year I did that right before the christmas event and got a free copy of Portal 2.
>> No. 13395
If you feel like it, I'd suggest you buy a set of Mann Up Tickets. You'll get to play on the official MvM servers, get to put progress in on your badge, and even have a shot at some hats and botkiller weapons. Definitely a good-value way to go, if you don't just want to throw 49 cents on a can of Bonk or something.

  this is just a random idea i had while watching a gameplay video showcasing the finishing moves of all the characters of BlazBlue: Continuum Shift, so feel free to move this post if you think this doesn't belong here.

My idea was this, "What if the Team Fortress 2 mercenaries had Astral Heats if they were in a BlazBlue game?". you can suggest ideas for the non-player characters too if you want.

Check out the video provided here to see these finishing moves in action. Man! are they ever awesome.
