'Team Fortress 2' is free; Work productivity at an all-time low

Posted on

In a move guaranteed to disappoint my editors and all bosses everywhere, Valve has officially released their beloved multiplayer game Team Fortress 2 for free on the Internet. The game was originally released as the George Harrison of The Orange Box (Half-Life 2: Episode Two was Paul McCartney, Portal was John Lennon, and Ringo played the drums, did you know?). Now it’s online, totally available, for free. Do yourself a favor. You see that pile of work you have on your desk? Push it into the trash bin, take the trash bin outside, fill it with lighter fluid, and set it on fire. Then go back to your desk and play some Team Fortress 2. Let Monday handle the consequences.
