My steam install got corrupted or something a while back. I need to uninstall it and reinstall and I have been lazy. That is why I have not been on recently.

Valve is running another freebie promotion right now. Install and play TF2 under Linux by the end of Feb, and get a free all-class Penguin.

Gonna get me a penguin.


Sidebar:



1: The generic mainframe computer in the background of many of the interior shots within TF2 is essentially a direct copy of a DEC PDP-11, with the PDP-10 style "Moby Memory" cabinets attached, as well as some other fictitious cabinets in the PDP-11 style. I have made this observation numerous times.

1a (trivia): In real life, the standard color for a PDP-10 cabinet was blue, and for the PDP-11 cabinet, the standard color was red.

2: The very first Unics kernel was created in 1969 on a PDP-7 at Bell Labs, as a breakaway from the Multics project with which Ken Thompson and others were growing frustrated. (The name Unics was a pun, describing the fact that it was a single-user OS, as opposed to Multics, which was a dedicated timeshare OS.)

3: Unics is the operating system which eventually became Unix, which was the inspiration for Linux.

4: The aforementioned PDP-11 (item 1) was a direct successor to the PDP-7 (item 2), and was the first machine on which full-blown Unix, as we know it today, was officially compiled.

5: A portion of said aforementioned artwork (item 1) is in the background behind the Pyro, who is announcing the release of TF2 for Linux. If you look closely, you can see that one of the displays is showing a penguin rendered in the amber ASCII-art style used by GLaDOS.

6: Penguins.

I keep being exposed to new maps or variations of old ones that make it interesting. I've been digging into new servers.

And I still suck at certain characters due to not playing them enough so I've been pushing myself to play them for 3-4 weeks now.

Trying a different approach. Brought home one of the high-end laptops from the lab for the weekend, backed it up, reformatted it with Ubuntu, actually got TF2 to install this time, and...



Blackscreen.


Failure is my constant companion.

The penguin is simply another item added to your inventory, like a hat or a weapon. Once you have it, you can access it from anywhere.

And I finally have it.

It's tiny. I actually didn't notice it was in the pic you posted until after I made a post requesting a pic of it. After I saw it I edited my post to say never mind.

It is the size of a hand grenade. It would have been better if if waddled and followed you around.

Haha. It's no Balloonicorn, for certain.

I recently became aware that there's apparently a large and thriving marketplace in which people buy and sell in-game cosmetic items in exchange for actual money, according to a rate table which defines a market value for each item, sort of like a stock exchange. Most crates, for instance, are typically worth about $0.01, while the Inflatable Municipal Ombudsman sells for over $10.

(!)

Given how difficult Tux is to obtain, I imagine it will wind up being an extremely rare item after all is said and done. I'll be curious to see what it winds up trading for.

Whats the point to planet side? Do you upgrade ur character or what? From everything i've seen it seems like u get tossed in a random battle and shoot at people with no end and after you exit the the battle all your progress is gone and u start all over.

For example in WOT you upgrade ur tank, then buy the next one then so forth. Mech warrior you buy a mech upgrade it and so forth. Planet side on the other hand, none of the reviews say anything about that. It's all just people using the same weapon shooting at ****.
