Team Fortress 2 trailer!

Holy AWESOME! “Team Fortress” was one of those games that just stole hours and hours and hours from my life and I never regretted one second. Valve’s follow up looks just INCREDIBLE – I’m getting sick to DEATH of cartoons and animation that try to be “real”. If I want “real”, I’ll go watch the News.

Games, on the other hand, have all been about getting as close to reality as you can; so this seems like a bit of a “blue ocean strategy” for Valve. Hey, for me, it’s getting people – specifically older people – used to stylised content, which is the kind of stuff I want to be doing as an animation guy. This is the direction I want to go as an artist; telling stories for a more grown up audience with characters like this. So the more it’s exposed and accepted by the public, the better.

Check it out – it looks really, really cool. If this is how it looks “in-game”, i’m gonna be way impressed. This is obviously the PC version, i’m keeping my fingers crossed the Xbox360 version looks similar.

    You play on your Xbox360, I’ll play on my PC… and I’ll salt the earth with your online corpses. (Assuming Valve goes for multi-platform online gaming.)

    In Gamepad vs Keyboard & Mouse, Keyboard & Mouse is Rock, Paper and Scissors.

    Xbox…. pshaw.
