Yeah I know the picture is a bit over the top, But it finally happened. Over 2 years worth of waiting and Robots (or Tobar) have finally made it into TF2 in the form of Mann vs Machine.
In case you’ve been living under a rock, You’ll know that Mann vs Machine is TF2′s first Co-Op Mode, letting 6 players team up against an onslaught of Robots modeled after the TF2 Characters. But its less like a horde mode and more like MOBA. With upgrades, Canteens and loads of loot. Its less of a game mode and more of a new game. Really. We tried our hardest to cover it all, But first watch the promo video, play it for yourself and then come listen to our opinions of it.
Somehow, that was not the only thing Valve did this week. They added in the AWPer hand for the sniper, but only if you pre-order CS:GO. But more excitingly, Valve announced the new version of Steam and let all Tf2 Fans a sneak peak via the TF2 Game Hub. Wow, valve. Can’t you give us 2 minutes to take it all in.
Apparently not. Because they also Officially announced the dates for this years Saxxy awards. Featuring some very interesting changes: everything must be submitted via SFM, A category called “best Original Universe” and The winners being shown on Spike TV. Plus ruskey has a little contest of his own to get your ideas for a medal into TF2. Intrested in taking part? Then head over to ugcleague.com
How did we manage to get through it all in one episode? Because we are so hyped for i46 this coming weekend. Remember to tune in over the weekend for mountains of footage. Now if its alright for you, i’m going to go pack the car and head off.
