KritzKast #291: Cranwell’s Big Plan

Posted on: Sep 21st 2014 by Agro

We are joined by Backpack.tf‘s creator Brad Pitt and their lead developer Fiskie to discuss such important issues as the latest TF2 update, Cranwell86’s worst ever trade and WeLoveFine’s recognition. Did you know some of the Blind Box Merc’s are actually made of Australium? And are available in Europe now too? Binding of Isaac items have been sudo confirmed. And lastly the cart can be moved, if incredibly slowly, when […]

KritzKast #290: Pretentious Propaganda

Posted on: Sep 14th 2014 by Agro

We all love welovefine.com, almost as much as the guys in that brass band at PAX Prime’14 like playing their music LOUD! Most especially this week because they have given us lots of TF2 merch including the Portable Merc Blind Boxes. We can unbox them while we listen to our SteamMusic while watching Russian TV mistaking TF2 propaganda for real propaganda. Honestly, it’s not like there’s anything better to do […]

KritzKast #289: Amazon Plays Twitch

Posted on: Sep 6th 2014 by Agro

Highlights from this week’s update include; all community weapons being renamed as “map” items, Australium Scattergun now looks purdy, RockPaperShotgun’s Horace the Endless Bear┬ápromo item added, and stage 2 of cactus has been cut. Amazon bought Twitch for $970m in cash (not in REF), the bi-monthy comic isn’t out again and TF2 has characters in Super Time Force.

KritzKast #288: Live from i52

Posted on: Aug 29th 2014 by Agro

Perhaps a little bit of a misnomer to title this one “live from” since we weren’t able to live stream the recording, though I’m hoping it will go some way to explaining why our audio isn’t perfect this week. We had a LAN party going on behind us. Not just any old LAN either. This was i52 the UK’s biggest LAN with somewhere in the region of three thousand BYOC […]

KritzKast #287: That noise

Posted on: Aug 26th 2014 by Agro

In the build up to i52 TF2 gets an update. Real life merch makes its way to the workshop. The End of the Line beta map goes into open beta. Valve have surreptitiously added “skill rating” to the game. Cyberleague.eu has an invitational 6v6 just as maincall.tf opens their doors. Huds.tf opens as the relaunch of tf2huds.net and the rather marvellous hudcreator goes live. YM via Reddit, gives us a […]

KritzKast #286: Soaking

Posted on: Aug 17th 2014 by Agro

It’s a big week and so, amazingly, we skip over this week’s update to talk about a historic moment when the entire KritzKast podcast was together in one place. Makani confirms the fourth installment of the current TF2 comic for the end of the month, but in the meanwhile you can view Kevin Lennertz fan comic about the sniper. Everyong gets access to the hugely useful heatmaps.tf, but it’s not […]

KritzKast #285: Beef is beef

Posted on: Aug 6th 2014 by Agro

It seems we can’t have another update to cactus canyon without having another cactus. There’s three in there now; Half Life 3 confirmed? No. What we do have back though is the level 3 mini-sentries. \o/ ValveTime, run through their Top 5 Valve maps, betting on matches with keys and metal becomes a thing with Saloon.tf. The i49 Fragumentary is on the horizon as is an item replacement service from […]

KritzKast #284: The mackerel awards

Posted on: Aug 1st 2014 by Tempest

We are loving the weekly updates to the beta maps. It gives us more and more to talk about each week. Thank you Valve. We also talk briefly about other items in the update…but really…..its all about the big changes to asteroid and subtle changes to canyon. Also Announced this week is the 4th annual Saxxy awards. This year you can start creating with portals since they have added the […]
