I love it. The art direction is awesome and while its not going to win any technical awards everything is colorful and crisp, the whole design is eye catching.'

Every class is totally unique and plays very differently, the only class I think that feels not very useful is the pyro. The medic is fucking awesome in in the right hands can change the tide of war with well timed "ubercharge" pushes.

I wanna know what you guys think.

Oh did you play the beta or something? I read the review in PC gamer and they said it rocks. I could tell by the artwork direction was genious. The models are pixar-ish smooth yet toonish. I am guessing here but since it is Source engine based it must run smooth, especially for a multiplayer game that is important.

I would rather have high frames over appearance to gain advantage. But it looks like you can max everything and not worry about slowdowns due to the low polyish looking textures.

I am no techy-tech normal mapping specular lighting guru, but when I saw the screens I knew it looked awesome and would run great.

Like Bugs Bunny meets Spy vs Spy meets Bloodbath.

Yeah when you preorder the orange box you get the beta. You will have zero problems running it on your system shammy and yes it reminds me heaps of a early warner brothers cartoon some of the locations looked ripped straight out of a road runner cartoon.

I have to order it sometime. Now is as good a time as any I guess. Any word on Portal coming out? I need to buy some Dramamine first.

its great, I played it for about 20 hours so far, its been awesome, I took a day or two off because I'm at a lan party and no one else has it. sad.gif

anyway, the only problem I have with it is random slowdown with steam taking about 40% of processing, which I am talking with a developer about right now

also, TF2, HL2 EP2, Portal come out Oct 10

I finally got around to playing it today. For 4 hours! Best multiplayer shooter ever. It's so fun and runs so smooth and no lag at all. And I don't even get mad when I die cause it's hilarious. I kept getting killed by some invisible spy over and over and over until I just started blowing everything and everyone up. I had a rocket launcher. The soldier is my favorite.

My name is DJShamrock on steam if you want to play.

I am KC.pwns.GMAN

a few problems are that the demo man always rapes, the scout rushes are hard or impossible to defeat, the engineer's sentries are hard to beat if there are tons of them around and no one plays with FF on, so its really hard for a spy when everyone just shoots everyone (one great way to uncover spies is to walk into them, with any class, if you cant walk through them they are an enemy, otherwise they are on your side

Yeah I thought their was FF on at first till I noticed my own teammates shooting me with no damage. That's when I went "BANZIIIII!" and really started blowing shit up. That's when I started winning matches.

My main crux in MP games was shooting TKing accidentally, which hurt my game badly. Now, I don't hesitate to shoot the other team without worry of who jumps in my way. I like the soldier the best. I have a thing for rocket launchers. If they sent me to Iraq, I would just want to have a rocket launcher. I rock at them. Launcher.
