so remember when I said nobody seems to have seen Meet the Pyro?
well, Helljumper (capotain creator) did! He went to Valve 2 weeks ago to playtest "stuff"
And he had lunch with Brandon, where the following conversation happened,
Well TF2 might not get an update, but SMNC is getting dinosaurs.
And someone called the Balloon Master.
WHO HAS A BALLOON FOR EVERY THING CAPTAIN SPARK DOES.
oh great SMNC my favourite game which is totally relevant to this thread
why do they ship 1.5 gig weekly updates? Holy hell, I don't even have bandwidth caps and that's crazy. I couldn't imagine a person with caps ever being able to keep SMNC updated.
I just hope MtP ups the lenght; having a pre-MtSn video wouldn't make the cut in my opinion.
a one hour meet the video would be 10 times longer than the average TF2 round.
...that seems like it would get kind of stale really fast.
Anyway, more or less, in the upcoming 2 hellish weeks, I'll have to deal with a TF2 large update (or not), the first part of episode 30 of Dragon Ball Abridged, Pokemon Black and White 2 being released in Japan (with the correspondant information tidal wave), and Dawnguard being released for 360 (and ditto).
Meanwhile, I have to deal with a half year of Parasitology, full years of Entomology, Microbiology and Biochemistry, some basic but inconvenient Inmunology stuff (although I failed that one last year because I was busy trying out the Detonator 4 hours before the exam) and a chore of a subject that acts as stress inducer.
God, June used to be an awesome month... I hope the update comes out and you guys get to enjoy it; I already missed the Manniversary and its wonderful store crafting...
Tonight was never going to be the night.
friday major updates are not out of the question.
I have the feeling that if/when I go to Valve HQ during the summer vacation, MTP will STILL not be released.
Some friends and I were talking about MTP and when it would come out. Jokingly, I asked for a sign from Valve and then my next drop was the Hot Dogger. Obviously the Pyro will be roasting weenies in the video...
You know what would be neat?
Betting hats over when this stuff gets released.
It'd have to be specific dates though, otherwise both parties would probably want to have the latest date to be closer to the correct one.
I create the country I would want to live in. My people get a piece of my warchest, it's a democracy, with a very streamlined military focusing only on defense. All my cities have schools and libraries, and stadiums and banks. I also always make sure my civilization gets the Cure for Cancer, and I also push for the Internet and Woman's Sufferage to start in my civilization.
By late game I have a massive pile of money, and unbreakable defense, and all my cities have all the improvements and just sit and produce more commerce. I have enough money to just buy peace from anyone who is hostile, and I am king of science because I used my pile of money and roaring economy through the entire game to just bribe other countries into giving me their research, and I shoot for the stuff the CPU doesn't go for first, so I can "catch up" later with throwing my money around and ending up on top of the science world.
I might play civilization the wrong way. I never go to war, I am entirely defensive. I do lots and lots of trading and bargaining.
It's too bad the CPU never accepts my offers to just buy their countries.
Maybe one day I'll move on from Civ 3 and finally buy Civ 4. It took me a decade to get away from Civ II: Tests of Time and onto Civ III and that's only because I lost my disc and Civ II is not on Steam.
I usually create a commoonist dystopia where all my citizens are unhappy or tax collectors and every city is full of Modern Armor or Calvary, depending on how far I get before hostilities start.
and I thought the SMNC update was off topic
Damn, I was really hoping it wouldn't coincide with Quantum Conundrum.
Ah, who am I kidding? I'll have bet it and Portal 2 again before this comes.
I forgot I pre-ordered Quantum Conundrum.
So I guess i have that to look forward too next week!
The chemical bottles give an actual use for Lime paint.
At this point, I never know why I'm still playing. My eyes are about to fall out of my head.
EDIT: I suppose I'll never be happy until I own every city in the world, and they are all fully improved.
