I just got around to watching the TF2 trailers....wow, very stylized and looks very different from UT. Is there a demo?  A brief search did not indicate there was. I intend on getting Episode 2 but it would be nice to check out TF2 before plunking down cash for the orange box. Will be heading to Best Buy tomorrow to make a purchase. This is the kind of game that should be native on the Mac.
BTW, are people playing this here on PC or Xbox360? I assume the 360 version includes TF2 split screen MP? I wonder how that works if each player is stuck with a class... Are there bots?

No demo.

No bots.

The way the thing works, it's not really practical to have a demo. The game is all engine: There's no SP aspect and no other realistic way to make a demo that wasn't the same as the full game.

It might have been nice to have bots but, that aside, this thing's a winner. Buy it! Buy it now!

This scenario is taxing.

As I've not noticed a health bar it is hard to tell. You pummel the enemy until they drop.

I have figured out about 70% of the puzzles in the game on my own. Then when I hit my limit I head over to My Cheats for help. I'm not that proud.

Well, you guys should be able to find me on Steam if you want (same name).

I'm pretty woeful though. Maybe pick the opposite team !

When I get back into town and start on TF2 I see if you are there.

If I have a critique of the not-realistic category for Episode 2 it would be when you

The best thing* about the Orange Box is the amount of spare HL2s that are floating around looking for owners :) I got the gifts from a friend, so I have a reason to boot into Vista now. Huzzah!

If you have the download quota get it off steam.  Quite a bit cheaper and you can play it right away.  I live in Sydney and I've been playing it for a few days :)

Also...AWESOME GAME!

I found a TF2 server a couple of nights ago that was running some weird birthday party mod: All of the characters were wearing party hats and gibs were replaced by baloons, streamers, and presents.

Now I can't find it any more and my wife's accusing me of huffing glue in my den. :blush:
