Hi, elder millennial here that’s starting to lose it. Is the joke here that they did do all these things back in 2006 or whenever tf2 came out?

[-] [email protected] 90 points 6 months ago

Pretty much yes. The only one I'm not 100% on (besides the scout skin, since that was after I stopped playing) is the engineer prosthetic. I feel like that weapon came out a while after TF2 was made (but I can't check that right now so don't take my word for it).

Jarate and heavy x medic were after release too afaik.

Heavy x medic was kinda obvious, but iirc valve didn't start dropping stronger hints until the past few years. Dunno if they've straight-up confirmed it yet or not; it's also been a while since I last played.

Jarate was part of the sniper update, which I thought came after release (because iirc there weren't any alternate items in the original release).

[-] [email protected] 7 points 6 months ago

Yes I think jarate was introduced the same time they gave him a bow option

[-] [email protected] 3 points 6 months ago

99% sure Jarate was in the first big alt weapon patch, because it's the last patch I enjoyed playing lol. Bow, Sandvich, Bonk, etc. came out at the same time.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 5 months ago

What's wrong with the alt weapons they're what made the game good

[-] [email protected] 4 points 6 months ago

Jarate must have been before 2011 when i first played tf2. and 2011 is almost 13 years ago.

Heavy x medic was kinda obvious

Outside of the game, maybe? I've played a ton of TF2 but never got involved in the outside memeing or story. In-game there's nothing obvious about any of them except Soldier sounds thick-as-pig-shit and Demo-man being black.

One of the Engineer's unlockable weapons is the Gunslinger which is a prosthetic hand. It also is (or was) commonly regarded as OP since it replaced the turret with a fast self-building mini-turret that was a pain to keep destroyed (Engie would toss out another one).

His penis has always been prosthetic in lore, its just never shown.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 6 months ago

Especially the pissplay one, right?

[-] [email protected] 18 points 6 months ago

You're correct
Demoman is the giveaway.

[-] clif 6 points 6 months ago

Am old, also out of the loop and would like someone to explain it to me in "grampa" terms.

I only remember TFC, and that was a long time ago

[-] [email protected] 4 points 6 months ago

Yes exactly

[-] [email protected] 4 points 6 months ago* (last edited 6 months ago)

I've never played tf2 (only played tf2), but based on the structure of the joke, I think so.

Evil gay people sounds kinda cool

Honey, wake up! The new hyperpop band name just dropped

Is there a high-res image for the femboy scout? Asking for a friend.

[-] [email protected] 31 points 6 months ago

Weird. My friend had the same question.

If it was released today we'd have another rage from the "fucking pronouns" guy

[-] [email protected] 40 points 6 months ago

Stop making Valve sound so based

[-] CheesyFox 7 points 5 months ago

well, they seem quite based

[-] [email protected] 32 points 6 months ago

I legitimately don't think they could get away with releasing TF2 today.

[-] [email protected] 20 points 6 months ago

I don't think anyone could get away with doing anything today. There's always something.

[-] [email protected] 16 points 6 months ago

I fail to see the issue here

[-] quams69 8 points 5 months ago

I went back to tf2 after cs2 came out and I am so sad to see it totally infested by botters and aimhacks

It was valves crown jewel for a while and now it's just rotting
