It’s been a couple of weeks since we posted, so we thinking it’d be good to do some housekeeping. The coming class pack will focus on the Sniper. It’s very shaping up to be the largest TF2 update yet, with multiple new maps and a bunch of gameplay tweaks. In addition, we have got another update in the works that as long as be completed before the Sniper, and that one might store some new content for all classes.
The XBox 360 update is still being worked on. If you’re wondering what is taking so long, since the content is “done” on the PC already, it’s mostly been approximately fitting it all onto the XBox. The first version of TF2 in the Orange Box was especially finishing to the XBox’s memory limit, and all the extra TF2 content we’ve produced has pushed well beyond it. We’ve found a couple of nifty ways to get going back a bunch of that memory, but it’s turned out to be a lot of work, and that’s what most of our time is making depleted on. In the meantime, we’re going to get a code update out to address the server cheating that is going on.
Like many a multitude of folks online, the TF2 cluster has been loving the Top 10 TF2 Plays of the Week videos that Push Gaming has been doing. If you haven’t seen them yet, you can catch week 1, and week 2. We’re hoping for a third one soon, but we can’t outstandingly complain. If we were doing them ourselves, you’d probably see the third one sometime next year. While waiting though, you can check out the exploits of certain of the Sniper’s countrymen in the second frag video of Aussie clan Mad Dogz.
