    At EA's latest conference where they showed off some upcoming games, Valve announced that TF2 is finally getting a release as the included multiplayer aspect of HL2: Episode 2.

    Does anyone think that sounds like a piss-take?

    And IIRC, TF2 was originally based on the Quake mod, which was prior to the HL mod. I know I've been waiting for TF2 since around 1997/98.

    Sounds more like TFC Source than the TF2 we were all secretly hoping for.

    So they've completely given up on making an actual Teamfortress 2 (as shown here) and are instead shipping a warmed over turd disguised as a cartoony TFC. That's sad news for an old school QWTF fan like myself.

    Um... TFC was never realistic?
    It never was meant to be, whacking people with wrenches to fix armour, giving people AIDS, traversing whole maps with 2 conc nades, that's TFC.
    I'm glad they are not making this some BF2'esque realistic game where you can't run or jump.
    I for one am looking forward to this.

    Er, nice attempt at being funny and/or flaming a highly loved game :tired:

    Don't know what to make of this "news". I guess it will be better than nothing and will keep us occupied until real TF2/TFC2/??? is ever made or completed.

    Those screenshots turned the gaming world on its head late in the 20th century...I remember the 10+ official sites that were dedicated to it...


    EDIT::::: One of the Valve developers on the DoD Forums even said they are working on it right at this minute!!
