Hot damn! We're just minutes away from live-feeding the First Annual Saxxy Awards, and the anticipation is thick here at TF headquarters. Why? Because tonight, we are going to announce a contest winner every five minutes until someone dies!
Hold on, there's somebody at the door. Keep rereading this paragraph until we get back.
Okay, we're back! Valve's lawyers said we need to make it clear that absolutely nobody is going to die as a result of these awards, and that we should erase that last paragraph. But guess what? We can't! We're live-feeding this blog post too! There's no going back! We're working without a net here. Literally anything could happen! Except for us claiming someone will die as a result of these awards, because we had to sign a pretty serious-looking stack of papers just now guaranteeing we will not mention it again.
What we can tell you is that all twenty of tonight's winners are going home with a handsome 100% Australium-plated Saxton Hale statuette
, which'll look great on your virtual mantle, and even better buried waist-deep in the skull of one of your enemies, since it's also an in-game melee weapon. So technically we were right, and someone IS going to die as a result of these awards. Hold on, there's someone at the door again. While we go see who it is, why not settle in with a bowl of popcorn and click on over to the awards[www.teamfortress.com]
, which by the time you finish reading this might have already started.
