I've been getting back into TF2 of late, to the point that on Tuesday I very nearly posted in here looking for new recruits or old sweats who could be tempted into picking it up again. In the end I decided against it, as the game has been covered before and it's hardly ground breaking.However, this morning I was having my morning dump and a trawl through Facebook and Twitter (the joys of mobile Internet) and saw the best piece of news I've seen since OBL got slotted: Team Fortress 2 is now free! After four years providing quality, humourous FPS gaming to a fresh generation of gamers (I say fresh because I played TF: Classic back in '9, Valve have decided to open it to the masses. This probably follows the success of their in-game item sales piece which, surprisingly for a F2P game, has almost zero effect on actual gameplay. Paid items are generally cosmetic and even rare, premium-only items are balanced. In fact, the definition of a premium customer is someone who has ever paid anything TF2 - so one microtransaction on a funky hat item and you're automatically in the big leagues!In honour of this momentous occasion, Valve have also released a new video from their epic Meet The Team (Team Fortress 2: Movies) series, finally introducing us to the Medic.This can be seen at the TF homepage. http://www.teamfortress.com/freetoplay/ I highly suggest that anyone with even the vaguest interest in gaming, who owns an Internet-ready PC, goes and downloads the Steam client immediately and promtply installs the game. It runs on technology that is about eight years old, so compatibility issues are basically non-existant and, even if it doesn't run, it's not cost you a penny! Although away for the weekend I will be signing up as a coach and am more than happy to introduce any new sign-ups to the joys and intricacies of this FPS gem. My Steam ID is "Bruxy".
