Full Changelog

I haven't actually touched Mann vs. Machine at all, is it any-good? I am always impressed at how well Valve support their titles with new content other companies should look to them for a bit of inspiration sometimes.

Man vs. Machine does sound pretty fun:
QuoteMann vs. Machine lets you and five friends fight a lethal horde of robots on new maps, with the opportunity to upgrade abilities and weapons along the way

I really should try it and so should you!

The update is fun but very hard, for anyone who loves to play medic (like me) it's a complete game changer for co-op mode, basically going from a near useless class in MvM to the most powerful.

Does this game still have those horrible loading times? I was so annoyed that I completly stopped playing it.

The game crashes when I've completed a round of MvM... =/

Same situation here. Is it a Linux specific problem?
JayBeee 24 Nov, 2013
Probably is. Haven't seen a windows user reporting it.

Liam, we should play sometime. =)

Quoting: Quote from titiDoes this game still have those horrible loading times? I was so annoyed that I completly stopped playing it.
Well, it still has long loading times (on Windows too) but it's far better than when the game was released. It seems that launching the game is longer but loading levels is far shorter (before TF2 switched to the new file format, loading a level took 3-4 minutes on Linux).
