So that’s both new maps and new weapons confirmed as coming with the “End of the Line” update.

It finally happened, the update we’ve been waiting for, no not end of the line, an update to our backpack and it’s interface. New crates with killstreak kits and chemistry sets.

A few maps received fixes this week, though none of that matters compared to the hugeness that is hud_combattext_batching_window. I know what you’re thinking, and yes we did explain what that means in the show. On a equally dramatic note, The Guardians of Destiny are now officially on the same network as KritzKast, “thePodkast.com“, the same place you’ll find content from Reachcast, How to Murder Time and Podtacular. Go take […]

The best websites are the ones that when they appear you think to yourself, “I’ve been waiting for this forever” but you’re not actually sure you have been until just then. This is the case with Loadout.tf and TF2Center.com. The first a dress-up site for your classes and only really in early beta, the latter a lobby-replacement which is pushing into release candidate status. In lieu of an update Sir […]
