The answer is yes.

Discuss. And if you want to friend me on Steam, here is my profile.

We should all friend each other on Steam and play Team Fortress 2 all the time, forever. Also.

The first is a fan video. TF2 has such compelling characters/sounds/voices that there's a whole world of fan videos out there for it. The video is made with in-game footage.

The second is also a fan video made using scripts and the in-game engine.

The third and fourth are promotional videos. They use models that are a bit more detailed than the default ones in-game, but you can turn them on and use them in the game too.

The art style is amazing, isn't it? :)

All the "Meet the Team" videos are available here.

Yeah, it really looks cool. I'm so done with the samey look of all these team 1st person shooter games that I just gave up after Unreal Tournament, even though I really enjoy them in principle (well that's not totally fair, I also don't have the time that I used to). But this one is really tempting.

I'm impressed with all the 'Meet the...' trailers for the game. May actually have to give it a try some day. Like the various classes with their own various specialties in there.

They often have free weekends on Steam, normally whenever they ship a new update. It's all multiplayer, and the cartoony nature of the game seems to keep out the RARRGH SRS BZNSS jerkos.

The personalities of the classes also come through in the random voice things they say during the game.

After watching some of the actual gameplay videos on youtube I think I'm gonna go ahead and pick this one up next week. Been looking for a good shooter game and this one actually looks more fun than most others. Don't know if the local game store has it or not so I may have to ebay it. I also noticed that it comes seperate or in the Orange Box. Are the other games in the OB any good? Or should I just skip them and buy TF2 on its own?

Denied. Tried to order it from Amazon and they said it couldn't be shipped to a PO box. But everything else on my order can. Plus they are all being shipped in the same box (or else I wouldn't be able to get the super saver shipping) so this makes little to no sense.

Maybe I just need to call the nearest Gamestop and see if they can get it.

The Orange Box is the best gaming buy out there.

I would install and buy it through Steam, actually. Save yourself the shipping.

This great game is now available on those fake computers that work all the time and don't have to constantly be messed with to function, aka, the Mac. :|
