KritzKast #399: Don?t lick knives

KritzKast | 1553270920

I’m reliably informed that Lucario is a character from Pokémon. Something that you too may need to know one day so as not to be ostracised by the other people on your podcast. I speak from experience here, as Lucario and Ryan (who may also be a Pokémon for all I know) join us from Gameshock servers to talk about community TF2 and what it takes to make it in […]

KritzKast #398: The Teemo and Ranch Mystery Show

KritzKast | 1553270920

Teaming up with Teemo and Ranch was possibly the best thing I’ve ever done. Okay, second best maybe… wait, there was that one time in Coventry. Hmm, well it was a good time at least. Two of the pleasantest people in TF2 at the moment. This is a super long show though, which can’t really be helped since even after I’d cut half of it out there were some things […]

KritzKast #397: Updated Communization Files

KritzKast | 1553270920

This is the best time of the year. Especially if you live in a dwelling with the ghost of your former flatmate, haunting your every waking thought. Or if you like candy. Or both. I don’t think these activities are mutually exclusive. Speaking of exclusives, Jewlander returns to us from his hidden lair, under the stairs, firing flares, in his underwear. Not into his underwear. We’re not judging, bu…

KritzKast #396: A Circle of Dicks

KritzKast | 1553270920

All I can think of saying is that I’m glad we don’t post pictures on the show notes anymore. Why is that anyway? I should have asked Chronos and Uberchain since they were on this show this week, but what with Vanilla.tf, SEA Jumping and Mr Slin’s Essay I clear forgot. Update – October 12 2016 Vanilla.tf SEA Jumphelp 2016 Tip of the Hats shirts mailed out State of TF2 – […]

KritzKast #395: Medalpalooza

KritzKast | 1553270920

Sleepingbear and CriticalFlaw are on this week. They give us the low down on some resin medals, find pumpkins in the TotH medals and explain the flaw in Washington State’s plan. I hear Sleepingbear is also pretty good at the trading too. You’d have to wake up pretty early in the morning to pull the wool over those eyes. Or you could just pass him a heavy sheep while he […]

KritzKast #394: Do not visit league.tf

KritzKast | 1553270920

We’ve mentioned Omnibombulator and Wiethoofd many times on this show. The later has even been on; the former we could never seem to find. It turns out he was hiding in plain sight, in a small red car, wheeling around dustbowl. Who knew?

KritzKast #393: Pitching a tent in the dog park

KritzKast | 1553270920

There are few casters who’ve managed to rise up the roster quite as surely and determinedly as Dreamboat, and now he’s here with us. There’s little doubt about his commitment to TF2 as an eSport though. Any Canadian who’s willing to wake up at 4am to cast a game in Australia deserves everything coming their way: fame, money, the ladies, in fact all the hallucinations one suffers from during a […]
