Hey guys heard about the HL2: Episode 2 news yet? Well if you haven't it comes bundled with the long awaited Team Fortress 2 (yeah you heard me right). It has gotten a bit of a style metamorphosis though it looks abit cartoony/shell-shaded. Pic of the classes here.
It will also contain a minigame/addition to the game. You can create your own Prey like portals to travel from one point to another. See the (funny) demo vid here.
Yes, I'm defiantely waiting for Half-Life 2: Episode Two with great anticipation since 2nd June when I compleated Half-Life 2: Episode One. The news about additional Team Fortress 2 and Portal is nice, especailly the second game, oh and noone at VALVe said it will be a minigame.
lol, a GI with a massive RPG.
i am not waiting for any episodes of Hl2 cause i haven't even finished basic Hl2 :) as to TF2.OMFG what is this?! i was waiting with anticipation for this game as for military team based shooter,all these old nice screenshots and now i'll recive cartoonish game.OMG :(, what a dissapointment Valve,not the first and not the last one,(first was DOD:S).
It's not about Half-Life 2 only, to get the full experience and idea about the game's universe I suggest playing it from the very first Half-Life. And what is that 'not the first, not the last' supposed to mean? You imply that VALVe has a tendence to make bad games?!;) I agree that realistism in the game would be nice, but on the other hand why shouldn't we try this out? One can't judge it before the actuall release and appearances aren't all that bad anyway. We have loads of games with realsitic visuals but unrealsitic gameplay, I don't see a reason to have this be the same.
Additionally on the topic, VALVe has announced that they will show trailers of all three games this week.
The guys in that picture look too nice, at least in the old team fortress the demoman looked like low life. They looked mean. This lot look like somebody's Dad's from the office. Or the local "village people" Pyro=local DIY painter and decorator Engineer?=just plain GAY! Sniper?=Aussie big game hunter? Spy?=Roy chubby brown in his younger days HW gay?= got mixed up in the transporter beam, all scales way off Demo man= local outdoor wine enthusiast (Drunk tramp!) Medic who shrank his own head? Scout, should be playing baseball or paintball Soldier? they have drafted gnomes in?
Its a joke isn't it? say it is!
I didn't make it!
I am so getting this one! I rekon TF 2 will use source.
Indeed it will, and the most technologically advanced version, so as Gabe said it will be teh best looking multiplayer game available.
the portal thing looks awesome, must have been fun as hell designing puzzles to use that in, cannot wait to see the application for it in multiplayer! hats off to valve for actually introducing something fun and innovating in a big-budget blockbuster game. (so what if prey had portals, they were static!)
Just finished Half Life 2, took about a week playing at work after we were closed...what? work has A/C and Pizza Hut delivers.
Planning to buy Ep1 this week.
Anyone check out the HL2:Lost Coast demo? Looks amazing.
