Team Fortress 2 is Free. Permanently. Go Play it.

Yes, you heard right, Valve has decided to make Team Fortress 2 a completely free game, supported entirely through microtransactions, such as their hats.  It's a surprisingly generous move for a game that's only a little over 3 years old, but they're also making a fortune with their DLC hats and weapons, so I suppose it makes sense.  Anyways, the game is still fantastic so I highly recommend you all give it a shot if you can.  I would like to note that this is for PC only

In addition to this news, Valve has finally released a new "Meet the Team" video, and this time we're dealing with the Medic.  Check out the video after the break.

Lol, already have, still not playing unless there is a sure fire way to avoid griefers. :P
Still, kinda cool to hear it's free I guess...never thought it would have had that much of an impact. :D

Have to confess, I suspected a fraud the moment I saw this in the front page. :D
Definitely worth checking out.

I was informed of this by a friend, and have started to download it. I had it (someone gifted it to me on Steam) on my previous Steam account, and played it a handful of times. I can't get used to the gameplay, though.
