June is "free-key-a-day" month

So to keep things interesting and reward some of our users with free loot, we decided to give away a bunch of keys this coming month of June.  Starting June 1st, the plan is to give away one key per day, that's 30 keys in total.  Each day of June there will be a code somewhere on the page.  It could be on the spreadsheet, the text in the page, or even in the logo.  It will be obvious but not labeled "code" so you will have to do a little looking (you didn't want us to make it that easy, did you?).  The first person to email us here with that day's code and a link to their steam id will get a free key.  Times will vary as we have a worldwide audience (although I am giving away the keys and I'm here on the east coast US so late nights/early mornings for me will not be common).

Just our way of saying thanks to all the gamers who visit us.  Also, we will have some news on a site expansion coming soon.  Exciting things are to come.

Non-TF2 related: Path of Exile & Midnight Club 2 freebies

Two PC gaming freebies to share with you all.  First is a free weekend, today until Monday for Path of Exile which is a game under development.  It's PC only and this is a chance to basically beta-test the game for the weekend.  Link here.

The second freebie is from Steam and is Midnight Club 2, to anyone who has purchased a game via Steam previously.  You will need to join Rockstar's group.  Looks like an older game, since it is not supported on Vista/Windows 7.  Link here.

TF2 Crate Sim

What more fun can you have than wasting hundreds of dollars in fake money?  If you're an avid crate unboxer then this may not do it for you, but to those who don't have a trust-fund it may be just good enough.  This crate simulator allows gamers to unbox most crates (the latest and greatest aren't there yet, only up to #36).  There is a tally of how much you've spent as well (at Valve prices for keys so if you buy them through other sources then you will have to factor in that yourself).

Poll results: Your opinion on "Duped" items

It appears that few Team Fortress players actually like duped items, or just don't really know what they are or simply don't care.  Loving a duped item may mean getting it for a cheap price or something else we are unaware of.
