The big TF2 Update released yesterday. It includes new items, a in-game store (Steam Wallet), a mini-game for "Dueling," trading, paint-able items, name tagging items, and anything I missed.

Some of the new items are random dropped and can be crafted, others are only purchasable through the in-game store. Community contributors can make some cash depending on how much people buy their items in the in-game store.

Here is the recipes to craft some of the new items. (Scroll down near the the bottom)
Here is PCGamer's review on each item (cost them $70 to buy them all, but it was for science). This would be useful to see which one you wanted to buy/craft first.

There is a new game mode coming, but not in this update, the next update.

+1 rep to Valve for each update they release. Don't mind the purchasable items at all. The day they introduce a buy-only item though, is the day I frown upon them, lol.

It's the decisions you make when you have no time to make them that define who you are.

There are buy only items :D You need them to complete the set bonuses.

The initial news about the item shop was that the purchase-only items would be simply cosmetic. I'm very disappointed in Valve for making these so-called cosmetic items necessary for set bonuses. Very sleazy.

As for the weapons, the drop rate for TF2 items is low to begin with, and who's to say Valve won't reduce the drop rates for these new items to entice people to spend money on them? I guess we had this coming though...this is what we get because we've enjoyed all these free updates over the years I guess.

I have a feeling they might be adding a Steam Wallet store for the upcoming DOTA game too. Micro-transactions work well for League of Legends, shoot even I threw down some money to get skins and the collector's pack.

Looks like they added bots, too! That'll make for more full servers on demand :)

They added bots awhile back.

Heck, I can't even get my game to work right anymore! Whenever I try to go to the store (when its even up) it CTDs, and it is starting to do this just playing the game (three separate occasions on two different servers). I'll look at it later (when the sales end at this rate).

Two different computers and the same thing happens. What the heck is going on?

The store is online, but for browsing only. You can't buy anything yet, at least when I tried.

Let me correct myself. I think you can get all the Set Items through crafting, drops, or trading. Its the KEYS that you need to unlock the Mann-Co Crates that are Store purchasable only.
