I don't get that they could use the models but apparently decided to record some crappy new vocal quips instead of getting a better result from just recycling the native TF2 ones.
Yeah I know right? The Pyro sounds like an idiot yelling gibberish into a pillow, and the Heavy sounds like a big doofus, the spy just sounds... different.

Wish they had used the Soldier, though he might not've been as fun with a stupid new voice...

The real mystery is just what the hell is Danica Patrick doing in there.

I think that happened when... ...nah, yeah, that's a mystery.

Presumably they wanted very specific VO, but didn't want to pay to bring in the original voice actors. Which is stupid.

Moving the Surgeon Simluator discussion here, I guess I'm sort of getting the hang of it. Went back and got an A on the heart and kidney transplants and a B on the brain one, and just got through the ambulance mode kidney transplant. Actually got pretty lucky and had a road bump eject the hard-to-reach left (player's left) kidney right out of the cavity. Nearly lost it when one of the good kidneys got stuck, but I managed to get it out and plunk it in there. Got a B!

Valve are cool, they let us use any asset we wanted from Left 4 Dead 1 and 2 when making the Mercy Hospital map for Payday. Too bad that map was rushed though, turned out to be my least favorite by the end. It was just such a slow mission taking place in a a small section of the original map. People seemed to like it though... I guess references go a long way. :)

In any case I think the Heavy's voice is pretty good, but Pyro is just way off the mark. It doesn't seem like he even tried to sound like the original voice. I'm also guessing they're trying to save money, but who knows? It could also be the actor wasn't available and they needed the voice that same week. People don't always think ahead.

I personally hate the No Mercy map, not because it's bad, it's just really hard. You seem to have specifically designed the trickiest sequences of events to pull off with the biggest penalties out of a serious hate for the players or something. :P It's only second to Heat Street in terms of difficulty.

Oh come on!

Arguably the worst part is that all of these characters are probably being mostly lifted from SFxTK.

Some of them really should've been in already, because three Final Fight characters and a Street Fighter 3 character were a sort of weird cast to put in SFxTK. More like SF and FF vs TK.

Okay, as you might know I'm a big Pokémon fan. In particular, how well designed the games are, and how they can take concepts and designs that look intuitively ridiculous and make them work. So normally my response to "This is stupid" is "Just wait and see".

But for once...

I finally had the chance to crack into Monster Hunter 3U during my little trip there, and I'm digging it, though there are things I still miss about the old days. Mostly I've gone mad with power now that they buffed my favorite weapon, the Longsword. And in my weird little mind I've decided that my character Azil is the son of my MH2 character, so it's like I'm honoring his legacy (read: the thousands of hours I spent on MH2) by being better than he ever was. And also slightly crazy with power.

It is with sincere joy that I spread this news: The original spirit of Mega Man lives on.

I would like to withdraw any and all complaints I had about Mega Evolutions.

I might make a Soldat mod.

Probably won't, but I might.

Indeed it is! TIM2 was my favorite game for a very long time. It was the first game I owned, and I got it when I just had a DOS/Windows 3.1 machine.
I really like that they kept it so similar, even though I'm not too certain about that dog looking so much like Pikachu.
