Halloween treats - Team Fortress 2 and Killing Floor

It's that time of year again and two of the best examples of holiday spirit have released their Halloween specials.

The first is Team Fortress 2 which finally released their Halloween update.  It's called Doomsday and features a wacky romp through Merasmus' twisted amusement park.  As with all recent "Scream Fortress" releases (this is the sixth) the endgame of each round features an exclusive minigame.  This year it's bumper cars and that's all I'll tell you...

Next up is a cult horror shooter classic, Killing Floor.  If you're into dispatching waves of zombies this is your game.  Every year around Halloween (as well as Christmas and the Steam Summer Sale) Tripwire releases a new themed map and activates special zombie characters.  This year's map is called KF-clandestine which places you in a nightclub but don't expect to do much dancing...

Try them out!  Team Fortress 2 is Free and Killing Floor is cheap.

Team Fortress 2 - Days of Halloweens past

Not much to say other than if you're a fan of the Team Fortress 2 Halloween maps like "Harvest" and "Hell Tower"  then you'll need to get onboard because Valve has unleashed ALL of the previous 5 seasons of Halloween revelry for the game leading up to this year's event.

Special Halloween giveaways and loot drops are also active during this "Pre" Halloween event.

Check out the video for what you can expect and have fun!

Updates to the Real Dudz Fryd


I know some of you probably noticed that the video links in the posts were broken.  That was due to my shutting down my YouTube channel after my brush with #microstopped.

If you're interested the story can be found here.

Well, I've just spent the last 4 days rebuilding and reorganizing my content and you'll be happy to know that the new YouTube channel will contain only gaming related content.  I've made 3 new channels for all the rest.

The link is updated in the sidebar but here it is again.

Check out the video playlist below to see what you've been missing if all of this is new information to you.

Borderlands Pre-Sequel freebies!

The gaming scene hasn't been all that exciting as of late unless you were anxiously awaiting Destiny.  Which I wasn't.  I'm not into games with that bad of an identity crisis.

However, we're getting very close to the launch of the latest entry in the Borderlands Universe.  That being Borderlands: The Pre-sequel. As I've said in the past I don't consider this game anything more than a training exercise for some new game physics that will eventually show up in the next "real" installment of Borderlands.  Still, it's undeniable that it is nonetheless a new Borderlands game and as such worthy of attention but perhaps not its $59.99 price tag.

So today I received an email from Gearbox offering a not so subtle reminder that we're drawing ever closer to launch day (October 14th) and to sweeten the deal for fans of the franchise like me, they've offered up some new Shift codes for both Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre Sequel.  Note that the codes for Pre-Sequel only work for 7 days after launch..

From the email:

Thanks so much for playing Borderlands 2! In honor of the upcoming release of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, we’d like you to have these Golden Keys to unlock some new loot in Borderlands 2.
