If this here is the only gaming blog you visit then I would like to treat you to something very special. However, if this isn’t the only gaming blog you visit then SHAME ON YOU and now I will have to punish you by making you watch these stupid videos all over again.

The engineer update is almost upon us and we all know what that means. I think Robert Walken put it best in this email I received from him earlier today.
Here at Valve we’ve created something of a new tradition that we do every time we start trolling TF2 fans with tidbits of information about a major new update. After delaying the daily reveals for as long as humanly possible, to generate maximum site traffic and publicity, we all get together behind Valve headquarters for a good old fashion weenie roast (using hot dogs) over the massive flames coming out of the server computer that hosted the TF2 blog before it’s glorious death by means of a billion fanatical fingers hammering the F5 key until something broke (usually the finger). So if you ever wonder why the blog is taking an eternity to load, now you know. STOP emailing me about it or I will DELETE all your backpack items!
So with that In mind I Just thought I would share with you a few tips & tricks when it comes to checking the blog for updates and hidden pages. First of all, If you don’t already have Firefox go download & install it from the Mozilla website now.
To find hidden pages more easily install the Web Developer add-on for Firefox. Then after restarting Firefox go up to the newly installed toolbar under the address bar and click on “Information” and then “Display Link Details” in the drop down menu.
This will display a yellow text box next to each link on the page allowing you to easily see any hidden links.
If you would like to be automatically notified whenever a page is updated simply install the Update Scanner add-on for Firefox. Then restart Firefox again and right click on the page you wish to check for updates on and select “Scan Page For Updates.”
This will bring up an options box where you can adjust different setting.
Then whenever the page is updated you will be notified with a small pop up box and sound effect.
I know, it’s a bad portal joke, but let’s just ignore that fact for now. So what have I been up to lately? Well, I’m currently working on a review for Splinter Cell: Convection that should be up soonish. Progress on Spire and Inferno is going nowhere at the moment because of my unfortunate decreasing interest in Team Fortress 2 and lack of time to even work on them.
I’ve also been busy working on a few other website projects lately, and I’ve been exploring possible improvements I could bring to N00bicial.com.
It turns out blogging on a regular basis is a lot harder then one might think. At least for those that have difficulty getting their thoughts together and hate everything they write. ;) Maybe in the meantime I could try to dig up some of my old custom TF2 sprays to share with you all..
The engineer class has always been one of my favorites so I just thought I’d list a few of the items I hope will make it into his update. I do know that most of these ideas have probably already been suggested by a dozen people already. Also keep in mind these are just ideas and some of them would need a lot of testing, tweaking, alterations, etc.
Check out my ideas over on the steam forums.
