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.

Okay, I'm really tempted to email Valve to resolve this now

But I dunno who to email and what to say

Ah, thank you. They didn't answer my email, but they answered someone elses'. Both Bombinomicon and Merasmus are voiced by Nolan North.

He is best known as Dr. Edward Richtofen from Call of Duty: Nazi Zombies, Nathan Drake from Uncharted, the rejected Cores and turrets from Portal 2, annnd several Heroes from DoTA 2, amongst others (he was in the TMNT 2003 reboot, and I believe he's also on Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes). On that show and Uncharted, he worked with Robin Atkin Downes (Medic).

So yes, in a way Medic has technically killed a Nazi.

I was checking out the new items, and I really loved both the looks and the description of the Distinguished Rogue. I started thinking about my favourite descriptions, and wondering about other people's.

So, what are your favourite item descriptions? Just the description, it doesn't matter if you like the hat/misc or not. Descriptions of physical items from the Valve Store are fine, too.

Here are mine. It wasn't easy to pick just a few, there are many more descriptions I love. But I figure that's the same for everybody, and if each of us starts listing half the TF2 inventory this will be a boring thread. Let's only list our absolutely very favourite ones.

-Distinguished Rogue. This coat does so much of the heavy lifting to make you look like a sophisticated man of espionage, you won't need to wear anything else at all. Watch those heads turn the next time you attend a fancy gala completely nude except for a coat. So jealous. How about that guy calling the police? Is HE jealous? Yeah he is.

No comment here. Just perfection.

-Ninja Cowl. If there's one thing that the ladies/men love, it's mystery. And what's more mysterious than covering your entire face with a Ninja Cowl? "Oh my, I can't see any of that man's face!" they'll exclaim. "He must have a terrible secret I will uncover with my love."

I love how this description both makes fun of trite romance tropes, and outright states that Spy has male admirers. I mean, sure, that's obvious, but how many FPSs would openly admit that?

-Stovepipe Sniper Shako. This hat is perfect for the sniper who likes to hide in the shadows, then run suddenly from those shadows to go lead a parade.

Yes, that was the whole point of my second paragraph ^^. I've totally switched to the headcanon that Medic pranks his own respawn-able teammates (or, at worst, the Messangers; civilian deaths upset me, but I can't say that I give a damn about the guys who were going to assassinate Soldier and then threatened the Mercs' families).

Anyway, my comment was only meant as a short explanation for my personal reaction, since the previous poster had been wondering about the reason some people were upset. I am a bit concerned about starting actual discussions because I'm worried that people will end up fighting. Can we go back to the topic, please?

Here is another description I love:

<b>Demoman portrait poster</b>. <i>A lot of important people in the world have worn eye patches. James Joyce, Marie Colvin, that guy from Days of our Lives. There are so many people in fact that it might be worth making a Wall of One-Eyes in your apartment so you can keep track of them all. Let's start you off with Demoman, and then you can get that framed picture of Dangermouse you saw at the thrift store. This is important. We're counting on you. </i>

Lucky Shot-Let's see you do that again, Private.

I can only read this in Soldier's voice and I keep thinking up a hilarious scenario for the line too.

The Stereoscopic Shades-If you close one eye, one of the teams will disappear. So don't do that.

I admit putting on a pair and closing one eye, just knowing I did that makes it x10 funnier.

I have no idea what drives the correlations, but the results are always hilarious, occasionally eerily accurate, and every once in a while you get a surprising gem, too.

Jesus, it is pretty accurate, isn't it?

...Why is there so little Demoman, guys. Why.

(Why did I pick the unpopular classes to like the most we need more Demo/Everybody Solly/Everybody and Engie/Everybody.)

The trucks n vans instance is increasing I think. That's actually a pretty interesting graph. I haven't ever see a large amount of Sniper/Medic.

I agree. At the time, there seemed to be quite a lot of Sniper/Medic, but, come to think of it, I haven't seen much in recent months.

All I have to go on is my own preferences and headcanons for Scout's mom, and in my head I think she'd say no if Spy came to her and disguised as Scout for a fetish-y thing, but really, I have no idea. I'd like to see more background on her.

I do know she was mentioned again in the flavor text of the new Scout pistol, the mafia one, but nobody seemed to notice that.

I had no idea there was a blurb for this thing, thank you!

I think it would be pretty cool if Valve went against the odds and just had a little moment between Sniper and Engineer. They kind of fit the 'Those two guys' trope and it would be pretty amazing if during a big scene they teased at Heavy/Medic and Sniper/Spy but then Mundy just suddenly takes Dell in his scrawy hairy arms and they share a small kiss and all the other mercenaries look really fucking surprised/shocked.
