GC07: Team Fortress 2 gameplay

GC07: Team Fortress 2 gameplay

Halo 3 isn't the only great game to be at the Game Convention, far from it in fact. This video showing 2 classes of Team Fortress 2 (more to come) certainly proves it!
Update: Second and last video online, showing 2 more classes.

Good looking. Not my type of game, though. Will still be getting it because it will be bundled with the orange box.

The bold visual style will slowly become secondary and that's when we find out whether this game contains everything Team Fortress Classic had that built such a humongous fanbase.

Not happy about changing the dynamic of the sniper rifle tho :(

Looking sensitivity seems crazy fast, wonder if it's in the top setting, but I think it looks great! - Could be really GREAT fun!

I'm pretty sure they are playing the pc version. Hence the sensitivity.

I may be wrong tho, although i've never ever seen close to this sensitive on a console game.

Can't wait to play this, it looks great.. I played some TFC before I started my 5 years of CS addiction back in the 20th century..

Everything about TF2 looks great, from the water effects to the interface.. And I'm pretty sure this video is from the PC version..

wow I'm loving the art style of this game.

Style and gameplay look awesome (reminds me of the Incredibles)

Put kick in the rifle and we're all set

Darn, it is the PC version, I noticed 'space', 'mouse1' & 'mouse2 ' on one of the screens ;p

I see a D-pad in the bottom left I think its for 360.
^ didn't see the spaces are mouse buttons.

No, that's just the 'health' graphic...I think.
Commented on 2007-08-24 15:45:39
I am infinity % sure that is a mouse.

I'll be getting this on 360 for sure. Two things I hope though :

1. The gameplay can hold a candle to old TF for Quake 1 (and that people play this).
2. The 360 version is good.

Never played none on the games that included in the orange box but ill pick this whole bundle up, nice gameplay and graphics style.
Commented on 2007-08-24 15:57:10
if more maps are added this is definately going to take number 1 spot for online gaming for me. i prefare class based multi to what halo offers personally. although both are good

I'm pretty sure plenty of people will whine bigtime about all the changes in TF2 compared to TFC.. People also did when CS:S got released, and that game was almost the same as the old CS.. The changes in TF2 are much bigger compared to TFC, so we know what's coming from a lot of hardcore TFC fans, lots and lots of whining..

People have to understand games move on, they evolve.. And with TF2 probably being a slightly different kind of TF doesn't mean it's worse then TFC.. Maybe it's even better.. I trust Valve in their judgement about gameplay etc, because it's not like they haven't done this before..

And if you don't like it, simply keep playing the old game.. Plenty of people also still play the old CS compared to the new CS:S.. I prefer new things though, I think it's a shame so many stick at the old.. I'm pretty much bored with CS now (mainly because my clan has stopped playing wars for more then 2 years now), but when I still play CS these days, I play CS:S, imho the same old CS just better looking.. And I'm pretty sure I'll like TF2 aswell, because I'm open to new things.. That's the problem with those hardcore players that play the same old game day in day out for many many years, they are not open to anything new at all..

Most funny thing is when they claim a new gameversion is for noobs.. I always say if they can't get used to new things in a game they obviously have no adaptation-skills, and infact they are the noobs in my eyes for being 1 trick ponny's, not being able to handle changes.. That's one of my strong points as a old-skool FPS gamer, I have played so many different games over the years at pretty high level that I have almost no trouble at all adjusting to changes or new games.. That's why I admire Fatal!ty aswell, he's the best FPS gamer in the world, not just in 1 game, but probably all of them.. Other socalled pro-gamers are only good at 1 game because they play nothing else.. If you're good at CS 1.6 you're also good at CS:S, and when you're good at TFC you're most likely also good at TF2, I have no doubt.. Stop whining!

"That's why I admire Fatal!ty aswell, he's the best FPS gamer in the world, not just in 1 game, but probably all of them.."

While he's super great, I really doubt he's the best FPS gamer in the world. 'Pro' gaming isn't even close to big enough profile for that to be true. Imagine all the hardcore gamers out there that either don't know how good they are, can't make it in because they're too fat or ugly to be marketable, or just don't want to deal with the stress of going 'pro' and making their hobby into a job.

[edit : I also wanted to bitch about people who think TFC made the series popular. The TF series started on QUAKE, not Half Life 1... Really, I didn't like a lot of what TFC did for the game, but I am fairly open minded.]

People that claim he's not the best I always tell to go and join the competitions he plays and challenge him.. If not, then simply shut up..

All those so-called hardcore FPS gamers outthere that are socalled better then him are pretty dumb imho for passing on all that big cash that's for the winning.. Fatal!ty makes hunderds of thousands of dollars by just playing competions in FPS games.. How stupid are you for passing on that kind of money if you really think you're better??

And believe me, if you're at his level, you'll know.. I know I'm pretty good, I win most of all my publicserver games in any FPS I play (on PC, I suck with controllers), but I also know I stand little chance against real pro's like him.. I played CPL and online league's in Quake, UT, and CS over the years, so I know a bit..

He's not unbeatable offcourse, I saw him lose in person against some Russian guy back in 2002 I think it was on CPL Holland in Quake3, he ended up in 3rd place.. But overall I think he's the best, he's proven that so many times in several different FPS games over the years.. I wonder how long it will last though, because he's getting older aswell.. But afaik no younger challenger has risen yet..
Commented on 2007-08-24 16:37:04
CPL Holland was in 2001, my bad..

Back on topic.. TF2 looks great.. I wonder if we'll get to play some beta or demo or whatever before release.. Since there's still no word and release is in November already I guess not..

I'm sure he cares making that much money just by playing videogames, and having a hot girlfriend.. What more does a man want? :P

P.s. Jessica is not his girlfriend, but she's hot aswell (and dumb, but who cares).. ;)

Do I need to list the differences for you between 1.6 and source, having played CS for nearly 7 years now?


Its not hard to adapt from 1.6 to source but its hard as **** to adapt back. I like Source better but don't say there isn't any differences because there are quite a few fundamental ones.

The only reason source got more popular on the competitive front was because of CGS and source TV fixes.
