Why does everyone take it for granted that this year's saxxies will be SFM?
Like I pointed out a while ago: in the blog post, it is said that Meet The Pyro will finally be released, and the TF team once said that they will release Source Filmmaker once all the shorts are done. And of course, there is this quote: "This year, expect the Saxxys to be much bigger and better, due to the imminent unveiling of another secret.".
It will happen, just you wait.
Yeah, but that doesn't mean that will necessarily be meet the pyro.
As handsome as his beard might be, you can't take anything chalky says for granted.
Or your enemy's point can only be capped once you have their flag capped, or capping a point unlocks the flag to be capped?
Shit, i'd play all three.
Was fun, but easy as fuck to grief though.
Well, but theres a bigger chance that we will get just another community item this thursday
This wait is even more crushing than WAR! -> Engineer Update since the WAR! update was way better than Christmas and gave us especially more gameplay adding/changing stuff. The first banner, the first shield, sword, the gunboats... all of them until then new and innovative weapons.
Plus during last years early months we had all that Portal 2 stuff to entertain us.

everyone thinks its HL3
New nvidia card is coming out.
I think its Meet the Pyro and HL3 speculation.
maybe day 1 tonight?
i'm hoping there's like an item you get in tf2 if you create a map in the portal 2 editor. maybe like a aperture science test associate badge, or something?
I have this dark feeling the UI of the main menu will be overhauled... again. Seems they've been doing that once a year or so now for the last 2 years (right around this time of the year), we're about due for another big menu change.
I really hope this isn't dragged into a "Year of F2P!" update and we're waiting for the anniversary of the Uber update for Meet the Pyro and some new cool weapons.
With a lame Replay Pt II with some hats and some minor bug fixes for replays.
Read those words and cross your fingers. SFM seems the most reasonable deduction but it could be anything!
I really do appreciate Valve doing the weekly-ish update and bug fixes this year. Especially if they're meant to tide us over while they work on bigger things. I know they're not much, but you've got to respect that they're at least trying to maintain continual upkeep. My concern lies more in the fact that they've been quiet for so long, and, as many of you are mentioning, they've been quiet for so long on a game that is now F2P and relies on consistent content to placate an influx of players.
Which means that they themselves are inadvertently building up whatever else they've been working on behind the scenes. Probably way more than they realize they are. And, when it finally comes out, it might not be half as exciting and grandiose and it needs to be for the amount of time they've been denying us smaller major updates. Basically, they're creating a huge amount of hype for upcoming content that might not actually warrant it.
It's like what happened with the Saxxies last year, but to a greater degree. At least last year they never actually admitted that MtM was coming before or after the awards were through, and yet that's exactly what nearly everyone assumed. And when it didn't happen, the perceived success of the Replay update was dramatically reduced. Now, I understand that was no one's fault but our own, but this year they've come right out and promised several "Big Secrets." If these "Big Secrets" turn out to be something half-assed, like another Medieval Mode," it's really going to tarnish their reputation to maintain TF2 as a fun, engaging, and continually innovative F2P game. Unfairly so, yes, but there'll still be a lot of impatient, rabid fans calling for blood.
But, then again, this is Valve we're talking about. They have just as much a chance at knocking it right outta the park with an amazing, eye-popping, burninatingly brilliant series of surprises that sates everyone's appetite.
tl;dr Valve is walking a very fine line of withholding content for too long and ultimately letting their fanbase down when if doesn't meet expectations. But Valve is Valve.
Medieval mode isn't even a new gamemode. It's just melee only on a castle themed map.
I wonder if they will add a new TC map! That would be great!
*crickets sounds play*
Don't worry... I know where the exit door is.
Hey people, still expecting an update? Your joy sure is cheerful.
This is the last day of the month. Another month without any actual content. I'd like Valve to strike at the last moment like they did with the Mannconomy, but since I know it won't happen, I'll just be waiting.
It's incredibly annoying how the first update of the year that is pretty much confirmed is the Halloween Update.
This is actually really sad
Look what Bethesda did like a week or so ago. EVERYONE and their dog thought that old greasy man picture was going to be for Skyrim DLC. Bethesda knew people would make instantly think this, then when it turned out to be Dishonored, fans felt cheated, and all I think its going to do is hurt Dishonored's marketing.
I think something really cool is around the corner though. I still remember those leaked sound files everyone found, talking about the robot boss with the frikkin laser beams, rocket launchers, grenade launchers, and a nuke. That sounds insane! And FUN!
unfortunately, I was right.
Edit: Also, fancy image host you got yourself there.
