    This is Saxton. Hale! And that legion business in the title was a Bible quote to let you know how serious this all is: Bible serious. So listen up, mercs. Some puny coward's built an army of robots to fight his fights for him. I don't know if robots have human emotions, but if not, they’re doing a Saxxy-worthy impression of them, because they look mad. Also, Reddy tells me they’re heading straight at Mann Co.

    I think two or three different people have made a full set of heads each, but I'm pretty sure these aren't any of them.

    In any case, neat.

    I got chills from that SFM video.

    War of the Worlds chills.

    Anyone recognize the instrument used to underline the artificialness of the bot army in the video?

    WHAT. THE. HELL. IS. GOING. ON.
    Like, Pyromania, then one month next Triad Pack, and then a just a few weeks Mann vs. Machine! I have never seen so many updates togheter since the classes updates.

    Doing away with the worry of weapon imbalance of PvP and giving me the ability to finally play L4D-esque mode with TF2 classes? Yes please. It's been a long time since I've anticipated playing a TF2 update.

    ...and I never expected it to be one like this.

    It probably says something about me that I'm most looking forward to checking out the new map, because it looks pretty cool. (The one in the SFM video looks just as cool!)

    Watching the video again, I realized the Heavy wasn't using his signature weapon. I guess he can't afford those custom tooled cartridges anymore having lost his job? Nice touch.

    It doesn't fit the TF2 theme...

    I'm totally kidding. It looks awesome. I can't wait to check this out. :p

    I wanna know if crits work on these mechanical beasts. They don't on sentries but then is that an engine related thing? Since sentries are buildings and these are essentially just reskinned bots.

    I get the feeling this will be like 'firefight' or what ever you want to call with waves and killing AND THE BRUTAL SLAUGHTER OF ROBOTS! I can't wait
