Valve Sneaks TF2 MMO Jokes Into Latest Patch

Fresh off the addition of an item backpack and a character hat-slot to Team Fortress 2--and the discovery of latent, item-related lines of game code that spawned many RPG-related jokes--developer Valve has gotten in on the joke with the most recent TF2 patch.

Ever vigilant in the pursuit of code-based scoops, the Steam community recently discovered a few extra lines of amusing code hidden in the game's GFC files by the amused developers.

The code in question is copied below.

    //TF2 MMO

    "TF_MMO_LFG" "Looking For Group"

    "TF_MMO_Quest1" "You must kill %s1 %s2 to complete this quest."

    "TF_MMO_Monster1" "Boars"

    "TF_MMO_Monster2" "Rats"

    "TF_MMO_Monster3" "Bats"

    "TF_MMO_Monster4" "Wolves"

    "TF_MMO_Monster5" "Spiders"

So who's starting the first Shack TF2 guild?
