In their seemingly unending quest to give us free Team Fortress 2 stuff (those dastards!), Valve is releasing the Mann vs Machine update on August 15th. The titular co-op mode will see Red and Blu joining forces (I know, it’s like matter and anti-matter, it just feels wrong…and potentially explosive, at that) to hold off an invasion of robotic doppelgangers. For all the flak they get about hats and Half Life, there’s no denying Valve’s been very, very good to us*.
* If ‘us’ = ‘PC gamers’, that is.
After introducing the Pyro last week, Valve clearly felt that the obvious course of action was to make…that thing up there available for purchase on the Valve Store. It’s called the Balloonicorn and those are all the words I have to say on this subject because Balloonicorn is not a word I ever thought I’d say on any subject in the realms of God and man and I think I need to go lie down now.
