Team Fortress 2: Amazing

So on the strength of the Team Fortress 2 class articles over at Rock Paper Shotgun, and the insistence of Darren, I went and pre-ordered The Orange Box in order to start playing in the TF2 beta.

I just played my first game, and I am just enamored. I don’t like first person shooters in general; I particularly do not like multiplayer first person shooters. But TF2 does something that makes playing with strangers almost seem like playing with friends at a LAN party: it pops up little notifiers like “AwesomeDude2 is healing you” or “you were just killed by a turret built by EngineerTheGreat” or whatnot. I was also playing with Darren for this first game. He was basically my medic, following me around and healing me, while I did my soldier thing. Not only was it good teamwork, but the the game was actually recognizing the teamwork.

Anyway, I’ll gush more about the game when I’ve played some more. Doubtless tonight!

See, I’d have thought you’d get The Orange Box anyway. Because, hey, orange. That, and it has Portal, which we’ve all been waiting for for how long now?

Hmmm, this gives me an idea for loot.
