Team Fortress 2 is in a strange state right now. It's a long running online shooter in a world where such games are rendered drinks coasters by dead servers in less than a year but it's been waiting on a big update for more than a year now. Problem with Valve is that the company has no designation so developers are free to work on whatever project they want, these days being the resume gold of VR and Children's card games, leading some to believe TF2's only alive thanks to micropayments.

It's funny though that highly skilled (if dim) mercenaries can't just break open crates. Or maybe they don't want to tick off the Australian who's fists have killed more dangerous and rare animals than deforestation. In which case, the theoretical physicist is looking like the dumb one here.

I honestly hate Saxton Hale. He is like the embodiment of every testosterone, rich, idiot and improbably strong bullies in the world. Seeing him be screwed this way just fills me with such glee.

He totally deserved to lose MannCo. to Olivia. So easy to beat a kid without actually hurting her. Saxton's such a tool.

Personally, I enjoy Hale. As a parody of precisely the kind of over-muscled, over-testosteroned, and under-intelligent bully you mention.

Hale versus Mister Torgue. Who'd win that Deathmatch?

Errr, I hate to be that one commenter, but you guys misspelled sales in the second panel.

Yeah, Key Sakes, sounds like a nice drink, but unless Hale has expanded recently, its probably a mistake.

Also dont wanna be that guy, but is it really THAT necessary to criticize typos so badly? Yeah, it happened, thanks for noting it. But we all do them now and then. Did you guys got the joke and idea of the page? Yes? Then you have no need to just post to bring it up. Guybrush and everyone on the team do their best for the comic. Please dont make them feel bad over a simple mistake I am sure most didnt noticed.
Really, please.

Just because you do your best does not forgive a mistake. Just because you're trying your best doesn't make you exempt from the standards we have come to hold webcomics up to. Corrections in grammar, punctuation, and spelling are generally well-meaning. It's not an all out attack on the artist or typesetter. Likewise there should not be an attack on a person who is just trying to help.

Never said do not point them out. I am just asking to not make it a huge deal.

Hmmm... From what I can guess, Maybe the reason that Gordan's even bothering smashing the crates is because he wants to be better armed.

He's not interested in hats because he has no use for something that would make him a better target, or is just plain useless to him, since he's likely still a part of SOME kind of Rebellion against the Combine.

Still, that also means that everyone gets hats from him... And I find Jack Morrison's expression with his fancy new Dr Dapper's Topper to be bloody hilarious.

So that looks like Crash in the trilby. It works on him. Far better than the Cat's Hat on Aku Aku.
