Laser death cat punishes Team Fortress 2 grinders : PC Gamer
"People make maps in Team Fortress 2 specifically for grinding achievements. Bleak, joyless rooms of endlessly spawning bots and resupply crates, where people don’t play the game, they game it. But in one of these, achievement_all_v4, the author’s added a surprise. A violent, horrific, hilarious surprise of biblical proportions." A good community polices itself. This is hilarious.

Team Fortress 2 - The Mac Update!
"...the bullets biodegrade when they hit flesh, leaving nothing behind but a blog post." It is a little sad that, as ever, I'm the millionth person to write "I LOVE VALVE" on the internet, but seriously, as I keep saying: I love Valve so much. (I want my white earbuds).

Team Fortress 2 - Classless Update
"During peacetime, hats have been instrumental for men to let the non-hatted know just who is wearing the hat around here." I love Valve and I want to kiss them lots.

Team Fortress 2 - The Sniper vs. Spy Update
"Jarate is neither affiliated with, nor a substitute for, Karate." The Sniper's new weapon: a jar of piss. The way this update has unfolded has, basically, been totally awesome.

Everyone At Valve Has Been Fired « Double Buffered
"The lesson to be learned here is that when something screws with your careful plans, you take control of that thing, warp it to your every demand, and channel it into a concentrated stream of Awesome. That is how you do PR." Pretty much. Valve have handled this brilliantly - the achievement they awarded themselves being the icing on the cake - and not only have they been on-brand for a savvy, internet-enabled company, they've also been spot on-brand for TF2.

YouTube - Team Fortress 2: Meet The Spy Full Quality
"No. That would be your mother." Valve drop the next "Meet The..." video, and it's perhaps the best yet - certainly in terms of editing and choreography. And I love how the other characters - especially the Soldier - are still being developed in this.

Team Fortress 2
"On Tuesday we shipped an update that added a bunch of features / bugfixes / balancing tweaks that came out of the community's feedback. In particular, it made some changes to the underlying TF damage system, and as part of that, it modified the way critical hits are determined. We thought it might be interesting to dig a little into the change, and hopefully give you some insight into our thinking." Another cracking example of explaining game mechanics clearly and directly, to an engaged community.

Games Convention 2008: Team Fortress 2 Updates Coming To Xbox 360 Later This Year
"Given that Valve is being forced to charge for the update, they wanted to ensure that 360 owners were getting their money's worth." Such a shame they have to charge for it - but still, more TF2 on 360, and that's a good thing from my perspective.

Temp Fortress 2 - TF2 video
Lovely little machinima about what happens when RED and BLU go out of business, and their somewhat psychotic employees have to go and get real jobs. "I am serious actor!"
