It’s hard to say goodbye, especially to those who’ve given us so many happy moments. Which is why we’re saying farewell, so long and until next time to Shwiggan, the animator behind so many beloved and quirky (if somewhat dubious) SFM shorts. The irony of his departure is that it coincides neatly with the release of information about the 2012 Saxxys.
In other news arguably the best two Highlander teams from North America and Europe; Syndicate and SNSD, are to play a show match on Sunday 14th Oct at 9pm CEST. The dastardly fellows at VanillaTV will be livestreaming at the exact time of our live broadcast. I wonder if I can get away with hosting at the same time as watching?
At least we can play TF2 lobby again. At the time we recorded it was down and had been for several days. I guess the code was remastered to fix their problems.
Speaking of Codemasters. our friends there have sent us a promo copy of their new racing game, F1 2012. Rather than make a big song and dance about it, we figured we’d just give it out to whoever’s dumped the most cash into our donation box. Call it a big “Thank you” for keeping us afloat.
Also in line for a “thank you” in the form of a KritzKast Vintage Lo-Fi Longwave is TheMinttu. His artwork dons our show notes here but we’ve talked about him many times in the past. Click on the player of the week to take you to his TF2 gallery.
Lastly we have two snippets of news we think you’ll like. The first is the Unlocks Only Tournament where you’re old to leave your stock items in the closet and play with stuff that didn’t come in the box with the game. Secondly the “Blood Bothers” comic to celebrate the dawn of the MvM era has been reconstructed into a living breathing YouTube video. Check it out below.
