It's been quite a while since I've posted anything. I do apologize but things can get quite hectic and the interwebz kinda has to take a seat on the back burner. But anyways, in case anyone has been under a rock for the last 3 weeks then allow me to be the first one to tell you that one of the more popular FPS's out is now free to play. Yes, that's right FREE. And that game would be Team Fortress 2. Team Fortress is offered through Steam. Now, that being said, with the free accounts you cannot trade hats/weapons with others. TF2 is your basic shooter. You've got you heavy class which uses the mini gun, it's powerful but slow. You've also got a sniper, and medic. But, they've got 3 not so common classes as well. You've got the powerful Pyro who incinerates their opponents with a flamethrower/flare gun. You've got the engineer who is probably one of the most vital characters. They can set up teleporters so your characters can easily zap across the map. They can also set up ammo/health stations and upgrade their turrets. Then you have the sneakiest of them all, the spy. The spy disguises themselves as the opponent to get behind enemy lines then take em out with a butterfly knife to the back. The spy can also cloak themselves for a set amount of time and take out an engineers items with their zappers. And last but least you have the scout. The scout is weak but extremely fast. They are the only class that can double (and triple if you have the weapon) jump. They cap the capture points faster than any of the other classes. All in all, TF2 is a great FPS. I've had it for a few years now and never had anything bad to say about. It's a good way to kill a chuck of spare time and now that it's free you have no excuse to be playing it!
