Team Fortress 2 Major Update, Discounted to $10!

Arguably, one of the most visually original online 'shooters' available today, and a personal fav, Team Fortress 2 [Valve software] has now been blessed with even more gaming goodness, a comprehensive patch AND add-on, free of charge from the devs. If you don't already have this game, they are celebrating the update by discounting the price for you! It's now a measly $10 dollars.

To what do we owe this pleasure you ask? NOTHIN', because unlike EA... Valve actually isn't out to squeeze every last one of us gamers out of our last nickel! Nope- they respect us, and reward us for being loyal customers by providing free extras and comprehensive tweaks and fixes.

So game on! Time to fire it up again and see how the newly vamped 'Scout' class does.
