Considering that you had to play the game 3 years ago, within a 4-day period and on a Mac to get them, I'd say they're probably rare.

*coughbraggingdisguisedasaquestioncough*

I didn't know they were rare until I looked them up, and he probably didn't either. I used to play a lot of TF2 back then and I seemed to remember seeing them a lot so I didn't think it was rare.

Also, it wasn't 4 days. It was extended into the middle of August (as per the TF2 official wiki). I got my Mac on the 25th of June of that year and I have those headphones so the wiki is wrong.

They're apparently quite rare since there was such a small window to get them and you had to play on a Mac to get them. I have a set too and get asked about them. They can't be sold on the market so they can only be traded for other items so unless you want TF2 stuff there is no reason to trade them. I would just keep them personally.

Heck yes Gom Player. That thing is awesome. I actually prefer it to VLC for some things.

My pile of shame is about a year of Quick Looks. I just haven't had the time to watch them. Same with all of the Happy Hours but I won't be able to catch up to that until I am done school.

I didn't think he was bad to begin with, but he has definitely improved as an on-screen personality. It is easy to see that he puts a lot of work into improving everything.

Buying it again. Already own the iOS and Mac version. Gotta get that cross platformitude on. This game is an absolute blast.

Absolutely not. Origin locks up my PC for 5 seconds while it logs in.

And I bet 4/5 of that 5% who voted yes did so by accident due to misreading the question.

It will sound crazy, but Gladius for the Gamecube. I was playing it at the lake one day and my dad started watching. He found it fascinating and watched me play it for a while. He understood that there was a fair amount of strategy to it. Same with Pikmin 2.

I am good thanks.

Yesterday I thought a $350 part in my car broke right after I got it back from the mechanic and was the cause of a misfire (my check engine light came on and my car started running like crap), but it turns out it was just a cracked spark plug. My mechanic had my entire engine out of my car along with the transmission and replaced the timing chain system and a small part of the coolant system, so I expected lots of tweaking to need to be done since the engine had to be completely retimed and everything. Hopefully this spark plug is the only thing. I'm swapping the spark plug out tomorrow. I would have today but I didn't find out the cause of my issue until after most of the part shops had closed (my mechanic looked at it for free for me).

Still lost on what the goal of all these "I'm offended by X" threads and the like. What do these people want? There to be no humour or emotion in games because it risks offending someone? I understand political correctness, and I understand why it is necessary in some cases, but I do think we are starting to go too far. It's like we're not allowed to have any humour in any medium of entertainment anymore at risk of offending someone.
