Into the Breach Once Again

It's been a long time since I did any real online FPS twitch-gaming. For a long time I was addicted to Team Fortess Classic. I could spend hours upon uninterrupted hours turning other people into digital kibble. Back around Christmas I took a shot at Call of Duty 4 online and was "deeply humbled". (It doesn't help that I'm playing the PC version which is far more vulnerable to cheats and exploits than the Xbox version)

So I picked up The Orange Box a couple weeks ago on a whim. I'd been itching to play the second episode of Half-Life 2, and Portal had been receiving rave reviews, so it was well past time to make the investment. But what I'd really been waiting for, the part I'd truly been anticipating, was the inclusion of Team Fortress 2. Oddly enough I haven't touched that part of the suite yet. Why?

Well, I've been damned busy. There are several anime from the winter season I haven't had time to watch through to completion (and not for lack of interest). There's also a measure of anxiety involved. I loved the previous edition of this game. Am I going to be left out in the cold by the sequel? Am I going to have to cut my teeth again and completely relearn how to play? I don't have that kind of time to invest anymore. I'm hoping this weekend will afford me an oppurtunity to sit down with the game and put in one long solid play session that will let me know if I still have what it takes.

Below the fold are the TF2 promotional videos released to date.
