  2. The Valve-Themed Super Smash Bros. Of Our Dreams

    For science...you monster

    Know this going in: It's not real. This is a fan-made video by YouTube user crazyhalo, and it exists only in our fondest imaginings. That's for the best. If this game were a thing, I would never get anything done. Dibs on Chell.

    Power Grid

    Ahh, do you feel it? Love is in the air today! Love, and gunpowder, and mana residue, and the metallic tang of medically improbable amounts of blood. Yes, we’ve entered the world of video games, where love is weird and sex is awkward. There are few topics more likely to bring friends to blows than this one, so rather than give you a “best of” list, I’m here to share my favorites. Six couples that have stuck with me over the years, each representing a different sort of love. If I leave out your favorite (as I undoubtedly will), by all means, let your ship sail in the comments.

  5. Valve Releases Entirely Community-Made Team Fortress 2 Update

    If you haven't played Team Fortress 2, you should really go do that. The team-based shooter video game's found a kind of longevity that publishers and developers that aren't Valve dream about. TF2's received numerous updates over the years, dropped to being a free-to-play game, and even added a third faction of robotic enemies. Community-made items have appeared in various packs over time, but their latest update is the first that's been 100% made by the community.

  6. Virtual Hats and Bitcoins Might Be the Future of Currency [Video]

    Generally speaking, currency exists because we all agree said currency has value. It's essentially abstracting the whole barter system. So, now that the digital age has arrived, does it not make sense that we should start seeing digital currencies come to fruition? We pretty much are already, actually, even if you didn't realize it. PBS Idea Channel and host Mike Rugnetta explore exactly this in their latest video, which asks if stuff like Bitcoins and Team Fortress 2 hats are the future of currency.

  8. Team Fortress 2 Characters as Portrayed by Cats

    Typically speaking, I'm not one to fall for adorable cat pictures. When adorable cat pictures are then overlapped by Team Fortress 2 characters, though, something resonates deep inside. These specific versions comes courtesy of the Le Ginger Snaps Tumblr, though they protest that not all of the cats are their own. Regardless of ownership, engineer is definitely credit to team, as made evident by his clever box-like contraption.

  9. Valve Reveals Team Fortress 2 Co-Op Mode, Mann vs. Machine

    Turns out all that speculation about a Mann vs. Machine update for Team Fortress 2 was on the money. Valve has revealed a new co-op horde mode, set to launch August 15th, that has RED and BLU working together to combat GRAY. It may not be a new team, unless you count the robot enemies that you probably can't play as, but a co-op mode is just the thing to refresh the aging shooter.

  10. Valve Teases Third Team Fortress 2 Team

    Some intrepid Valve patrons recently noticed that the bloodstains appearing on the logo of Team Fortress 2's main page linked to lore tidbits relating to a third Mann brother: Gray. You see, in the game's lore, Blutarch and Redmond are the men behind the two opposing sides. They're battling over gravel, which they apparently believe powers steam engines and is therefore valuable. Now, according to a comic puzzled out by the community, Gray has returned and just might be bringing his own team with him. That's the speculation, anyway.
