    SUPER pumped about this. I haven't played much TF2 over the past year, but I'll definitely reinstall for some co-op action. This looks great!
     
  4. Team Lead: "We need to add something new to TF2 to continue selling hats into the near future"
    Business Manager: "L4D and L4D2 made a lot of money. How similar is it to TF2? Can you replicate its success?"

    Business Manager: "Great, get to it! We've got hats to sell!"
    Team Lead: "Zug, zug."

    Haven't played TFC/TF2 in a longggg time however am definitely up for trying this out.. I'm a complete sucker for Horde game mode (recently busted out Gears 3 for a cheeky few rounds).

    +1 Burty, I haven't played TF2 in ages, being busy with life and all, but I guess it will be fun to give it a shot :)

  11. I never start out on easy mode with any game, and I mean ANY GAME. But even the normal mode of MvM makes me want to start playing on easy. It's a fun game mode with a challenging objective - One of Valve's best contributions to TF2.
