Team Fortress 2 - Classes - Soldier

Though he really wanted to fight in the second world war, the Soldier was rejected by every branch of the military. Refusing to take no for an answer, he bought his own ticket to Europe. After arriving and finally finding Poland, the Soldier taught himself how to load and fire a variety of different weapons before going out and killing loads of Nazis, for which he was awarded several medals that he designed and made himself. He finally stopped after he heard that the war was over, in 1949!
The Soldier is very flexible, with his rocket jump allowing him to reach places not even reachable by the Scout! He is well balanced, and is one of the 'meta' classes in the competitive format. He has 200 health, second only to the Heavy.

Game Review and Explanation - Subnautica

This is a game that I really like. It has just the right mix of adventure, farming, and stunning graphics. Subnautica is a survival / crafting game in which you take the place of a spaceship crash survivor, and you land on Planet 4546B, inside a small lifepod. You then have to survive using the planet's resources, building things of increasing difficulty. You make small submarines, large submarines, exosuits, undersea bases... Then, after you have repaired your damaged craft, you start to get messages with coordinates of other lifepods contained, but all is not what is seems, after all, why are all of the lifepods destroyed? Why did the Aurora crash? And what is that strange green glow on some of the creatures?
I think that the story has sort of been crammed into the game, not really fitting, but the fact that it is an early-access game more than makes up for all of its flaws. I think that the game is the right price, £15, Overall I would give this game a 9/10, but this might change in the future!

Team Fortress 2 - Classes - Scout

So, to continue this new series, let's start with the class rated one on the select screen... The scout! He's fast, he's cocky, and he has a whole load of attitude! Coming from Boston, Massachusetts, USA, he is one of the three 'offence' classes. He was the youngest of eight boys from the south side of Boston, he learnt early how to beat the crap out of people! As he was the youngest, fights usually ended before he could get himself into punching distance. This ended in the scout learning to run fast. He ran all of the time, until, finally, he could beat his siblings! In-game he can 'double jump' which can prove to be an amazing asset to him on the battlefield. He is used best when flanking and whittling down his enemies health, before running away! However, the scout has one of the lowest health out of all of the characters. This makes him very vulnerable on the front line. He pushes carts and captures point at two times the speed of other classes. He is the only class with this ability naturally. Both the soldier and the demoman have the same ability while holding the 'pain train' item. For the Meet the Team video for the Scout, click on the link below.

Team Fortress 2 - The Basics

Well, for my first post I would like to review a game that I feel is one of the best games out there. Team Fortress 2 is a free to play game made by VALVE, the company that developed Steam, essentially a platform that sells games, links people, and supports a vibrant community workshop.
Team Fortress 2 was made on October 9th, 2007, and so is slightly under 10 years old. It has aged well! The updates as of late have been disappointing, like 'Meet your Match', the part war between the 'Heavy' and the 'Pyro', part casual ranking system, but others have been amazing, such as Sniper vs Spy. This update started off with it being another single class update, but through the course of it,  the Spy appeared in the images... This was the first double class update, but more importantly, it introduced cosmetics!
So... There are nine classes:

Primary - Scattergun
Secondary - Pistol
Melee - Bat

Primary - Rocket Launcher
Secondary - Shotgun
Melee - Shovel

Primary - Flamethrower
Secondary - Shotgun
Melee - Fire Axe

Primary - Grenade Launcher
Secondary - Stickybomb Launcher
Melee -  Bottle

Primary - Minigun
Secondary - Shotgun
Melee - Fists

Primary - Shotgun
Secondary - Pistol
Melee - Wrench
Other - Construction/Destruction Menu

Primary - Syringe Gun
Secondary - Medi-Gun
Melee - Bonesaw

Primary - Sniper Rifle
Secondary - SMG
Melee - Kukri

Primary - Revolver
Secondary - Sapper
Melee - Knife
Other - Invisibility Watch

These are the 'stock' weapons, the weapons that are the default for each class. It would take a very long time to list all of the weapons in the game... There are 135, but some of them are the same weapon, just with different textures and designs. None of the unique weapons cost more than the others. They are all half of a 'scrap', a metal meant to be used for crafting, but instead changed into a currency by the community. There are three scrap in a reclaimed, three reclaimed in a refined, and, at the time of writing, 26 ref to a key. A key is worth approximately £2. The refined to a key ratio changes almost daily!
I realise that this is a very long post, and is only part of this introduction, but most of my posts will be much shorter than this...

New Site!

This is a thing that I am starting up, as my friend Nat has a book blog, and I want to start one up like it... I couldn't do books, so I am doing games!
