That comic was hilarious. I was chuckling throughout. My gf asked why, but it's kinda hard to explain even the concept of an ARG to her.

This is the greatest comic yet.

Especially the Great Eagle Scourge of 1822, and the results of it.

Ah this arg is awesome so far. I haven't played TF2 in ages, picked it up again tonight to check out that chinatown inspired map, I loved the look of it.

Apparently it was crafting those items together that triggered the alert? I don't think crafting it any more will do anything.

The "Smother you both" panel killed me for a while.

So I wonder if we're sort of at the TF2 Endgame. Not that the game will stop so to speak (way too much in hat sales to do that), but this is the final part of the "story," with Redmond and Blutarch dead, a final uneasy alliance against the robot invasion. I'd hoped they'd do something like that one day, but I figured it would be against the Announcer finally going rogue.

So alliance against robots is happening? Maybe it really is some kind of horde mode or at least something cooperative?

I decided to check out the IRC chat at the ARG wiki in the few minutes leading up the discovery of the recipe, was pretty exhilirating. Everyone went frantic saying who has what ingredients then someone posted the link to the comic, so we never worked out who actually triggered it.

By the way, I want to compliment Valve with their timing. Due to moving house I haven't been able to play online for the last couple of months. My gaming rig will come online again about the time when this update will be released.

Well from the comic Grey seems focused on Saxton.

And people were talking about a horde mode type of thing...

That said, 'protecting saxton' just sounds wrong >.> as long as its in a 'dont let him get mad' type of thing.
