TFTV Cevo TF2 Quarterfinals Predictions

The guys over at TFTV have put together yet another improvement over their last video predicting the outcomes of CEVO’s quarterfinals in TF2. I would love to see some TGL coverage before STA though. TGL is further along in their tournament and as kaybee has pointed out, there are some stellar matches coming up in the next few days. I completely agree and hope that STA is delayed in leiu of these more competitive games.

Why would you do STA predictions when you have some awesome matchups in TGL this Sunday….20id vs SB, SIT vs UGKZ, -P- vs [TDA], 50|CAL vs ex. TGL is starting to have some interesting matchups this week. Would be nice to see some preds on that. -kaybee

Once again those guys, amazing work on your videos, this is the best thing that the TF community has had since modems went to 56k.

Call Of Duty 4

I think I am going to have to check out Call of Duty 4. I’ve seen so many people saying good things about it that I’m eager to give it a try. My only fear is that it will end up on the shelf next to Quake4, Doom3, and Half-Life 2, the set of games I spend $50 on, play through once and never touch again due to crappy multi-player experience and zero replayability.

From the stunning opening mission on the cargo ship to the heart-stopping execution of the Middle Eastern President to… God… the nuke… or the unexpected suicide… or the comeuppance at the end of the game. Nearly every mission is crammed with climaxes that left my heart pounding and begging for more.

I was doing a search for TF2 and came across a guy who has things so wonderful to say about COD4, but that the multiplayer will never compete against the perfection of TF2.

Gamespot TF2 Tournament TV

I didn’t even know that Gamespot was holding a Team Fortress 2 tournament, but apparently it has been going on for a few weeks and they are ready to play the final match. The final match is between Machines Less Wanted and team Ron Paul 2008. These two teams wouldn’t stand a chance in the CEVO tournament.

From what I can tell, these two teams look extremely unorganized and the commentary seems extremely lame due to people asking stupid questions. I assume they are probably targeting a broader audience than the folks at Team Fortress TV, but it feels like they have never even played TF2. “I think these guys have a big history, so I think they’ll do well. I don’t know.” Awesome not knowing anything about a game you’re commenting on.
