Holy moly there are a lot of old faces here. Definitely agree with the sentiments and thoughts here, and like many others I too have gone on to pursue other things. I do still do the occasional gaming and I still have my competitive side as well, but I haven't played or speedran a sonic game in years.

I happened to stumble across some sonic speedruns on youtube and curiosity got the best of me and I decided to check out how many of my records are obsolete now :p . It's really fascinating what new strategies players have come across now.

I guess I can't really speak for the community because I haven't been a part of it in so long but it's nice to see that the site is still up and running. Hope everyone's doing well :)

I haven't played any of these games since highschool (holy shit that was 8 years ago...I feel old...) but if you guys end up doing this and there's room, and wouldn't mind witnessing a run which I can only assume will be humorous after not having played these games for 8 freaking years, then I wouldn't mind partaking.

Long awaited pictures!

Should be self explanatory from the file names but: First picture is me and CF, second is me and FF (<3), third is me and RPG and the last is RPG and his girlfriend, Kerry. :)

awwwww, you didn't come visit Taco! :(

Though I don't blame you, there's nothing but corn here D:

No seriously, who are you people? Every time I go in the chat I have people saying hi to me that know my name and I don't know theirs D:

Its sad and frightening at the same time

well I feel kind of stupid

so I definitely accepted your friend request PPA, but I totally took it for granted, forgetting that you only had it on 360 up until now (which is funny considering how much I bugged you to get it on pc)

but yay! I realized this finally now (2 + 2 clicked together) so we can play sometime :o

I picked it up only to immediately put it back down:

It felt like someone had taken Conker(XBOX) and taken out all the comic hijinx, only to leave a bland and uninteresting game that had, quite frankly, already been done.

I understand that no game is ever 100% accepted, even the really good ones, but for someone who just picked up the game and played it for what seems like no longer then 10 seconds you certainly are making a bold claim.

You should not be so hasty to jump to such a conclusion. I think I've played conker on the xbox once, and a few times on the N64 and I know the xbox version is based on the 64 version with online play. But in all the times that I've played both of these games, never have I even once considered it to be comparable in any way to team fortress 2. Both are two completly different structures of gameplay. Conkers, from what I've assembled of it, is similar to most of the shooters of its time. You run around picking weapons up from the ground. I don't know if current fps follow a similar fashion or not. I know the new unreal is similar in style, but as for how much it follows that fashion I don't know.

Tf2 is the only game I know of which is anything like itself. The class system is much more unique and a nice approach IMO to balancing gameplay. In a sense, you have access to any weapon you want, but you can only carry 3 at a time. Obviously weapons are restricted to each seperate class (that's what makes each class unique) but if you're sick of burning people with the flamethrower, its a simple matter of heading back to spawn and changing to a heavy with a minigun, or a soldier with a rocket launcher.

Granted, other fps may have all of these weapons available for any one character, and there's nothing wrong with that. Those sort of fps take a different approach then. Tf2 here is clearly unique in the sense that if every character has their own unique set of weapons, then every character is unique in their own respective right, and so a sense of teamwork is developed. Each of these weapons are going to be needed or used to achieve a team based goal (capturing the point, intel, whatever) and so team fortress 2 can be said to be a team based game, and that alone makes it different from alot of other fps.

Aside from team fortress classic, I don't see how any of this has ever really been done before. Im just curious to know why you think this game is uninteresting and bland, because its nothing like any of the other fps I've ever played, and that alone makes it fun. For me at least

Oh noes I am posting in a topic that has been dead for a good year again, but for good reason, for I just recently learned in chat that more people play team fortress 2 (both on xbox and pc)

I urge more people to buy this game so that I may put my proposition of starting a [TSC] clan into action. We dont have to be pro or anything, but it actually might be yet another outlet to recruit new members. If we had our own clan and server it would be a great way to get new people introduced to the site.

Probably going too much into this, but still an idea to think about nonetheless

At the very least though, I'd like to play some team fortress 2 with the people that now have it on their pc. I know spinny said he had it along with a few others (I forget who) so friend me on steam when you get the chance damnit!

steamid: zandurad
currentnick: [NIU] Taco {G}

the NIU stands for Northern Illinois University, but I think it would look cooler if my clan tag was [TSC] :o
oh, and the G is a clan I made up for melee only, so join that if you're interested k

I've been home for a good week without access to my computer but Ill be back at my apartment with my computer saturday evening (central time :o) and I'm probably going to play a lot of tf2 that night so please, join me in my carnage and slaying that night. or at the very least post your steam contact info!

and if you dont have tf2 go buy it right now because its awesome and only costs 20 dollars!

oh, I remember how awesome this game is!

I used to be fairly into time attacking it. Never anywhere near as good as though pros, though I always wanted to be.
I never was able to do the tricks they did on max speed settings, so I just did snaking instead. Was only able to do this on a few levels though (mainly the big open ones, lol)

I don't have my game here now so I can't play, but I'll certainly upload my times the next time I go home

too bad I can't access the site while using it (since it's unregistered tehnically)

srsly guyz, this stuff is awesome. I hate vista so much but I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE Windows 7. Everything runs better, it doesn't take up as much processing power as silly vista, AND its got cool sets of desktop images that like change every 5 minutes to a set theme!

so screw vista and xp, and definitely screw gerbil and his silly linux!

Go download and beta test Windows 7 NAO!

oh wait, actually I just checked the site and they closed the download to the public...but you should still try and find a way to obtain it....somehow. IT IS MOST DEFININGLYINGLY WORTH EVERYTHING EVER MADE EVER!

really? I honeslty feel that there are much cheaper classes over soldier...

First of all, the soldier is one of the few classes that actually has to reload his primary weapon. and it takes a frickin while to reload, you're more or less vulnerable to attack while doing so. Second, because the soldier is shooting a projectile rather than a bullet, it travels much slower than pretty much any other classes weapon. It gives the opponent time to runaway assuming they are not close enough. The splash damage is great, especially with rockets, but I feel like the grenades and stickies from the demoman still have a greater splash range then a crit rocket.

I kind of came to the assumption that the soldier is one of the weaker classes. personally I think some of the other classes are a little overpowered.

pyro wins at close combat range 95% of the time. you don't have to reload, and you get a frickin shield to bounce projectiles off of you! an ubered pyro can push an entire team back to their spawn gate if done properly (and in an appropriate situation). an ubered soldier only gets 4 shots to strike fear into the opposing team! turn flipping invisible! I can't count the number of times I've been just backstabbed out of nowhere. It's infuriating more then anything.

The demoman, I feel is like a slightly better version of the soldier

Iono, I guess I'm just rambling right now

I see that you have a 360 gamercard though. I play on the pc. is there a way we can still play or is there no interconnectivity between the two?

Gaming and Grazing / Re: Team Fortress 2
« on: October 19, 2008, 07:57:25 PM »

but I bump it anyway, to see if there is any renewed interest in this game or if more people have gotten into it now that it's been out for a while

I've recently started playing this game and let me tell you, it is fudging awesome!

I've only really played as soldier, I've barely touched some of the other classes (spy, medic and engineer total up to 20 minutes total gameplay time). I wouldn't say I'm crazy good like those crazy people out there on the interwebs, but I guess I'm decent and have my moments in the spotlight

So does anyone now/still play this?
I'd like to play with someone from TSC sometime :o

my username is zandurad and I use the nickname [NIU]Taco when I play

if you don't have orangebox, I highly recommend you get it!

cmon, somebody play with Taco in something for once! you know you want to...
