Team Fortress 2 Joins The Free To Play Squad
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Valve recently announced that its criticallly acclaimed online action game, Team Fortress 2, is now available as a Free to Play game. The F2P announcement came as part of the Über Update, the largest content pack created for the game since it shipped in 2007.

Q. Who has a free account?
Anyone who has downloaded the game for free and has not made a purchase in the in-game Mann Co. store has a free account.

Q. Who has a premium account?
If you've ever spent money on TF2, you have a premium account. This includes purchasing the game before it was Free-to-Play, activating a retail version of the game, or making a purchase in the Mann Co. in-game store.

Q. How is a free account different than a premium account?
Premium accounts have a few extra features, including access to rare and cosmetic items through random item drops, the ability to store more items in your backpack, and more powerful trading and crafting abilities. Otherwise, the gameplay experience will be identical for both accounts.

Q. How much of the game can I play without paying anything?
The entire game can be played without making a purchase. All game modes, classes, and maps are available. Nearly every weapon is available through achievements, drops, or crafting.

Q. How does Free-to-Play affect existing users?
It doesn’t. You can keep enjoying TF2 as you have before, with all the features and content you’ve come to expect from TF2.

Q. What do I get if I paid for the game?
To thank you for your years of support, we will be giving players who have purchased TF2 a special Proof of Purchase hat to wear on any character in-game.

iGame Radio Reviews Spiderweb's Avadon, Telltale's Hector
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Game Review Cast 38 of Omaha Sternberg's iGame Radio podcast is now available for listening. The podcast features reviews of Spiderweb Software's latest fantasy epic Avadon: The Black Fortress, and Telltale Games' adult oriented adventure game Hector: Badge Of Carnage.

Game Review Cast 38:

A review of Avadon: The Black Fortress, by Spiderweb Software. Easily the best old-school RPG on the market today. Necessary tweaks in gameplay balance aside, the new skill tree, story, and world to explore means years of RPG enjoyment for all.

Also, a review of Hector: Badge of Carnage, published by Telltale Games. Not for the faint of heart. A down and dirty point-and-click adventure game, you’ll get more out of the game from the variety of characters you meet and exploring how disgusting the game can get than anything else.
