Team Fortress 2: Heavy Weapons Guy
A lil' treat, just released from the dudes at Valve. Meant to showcase their new facial animation software in the Source engine as well as to advertise Team Fortress 2, their upcoming multiplayer blast-stravaganza, it also reveals that Valve's got themselves some top-flight short film writers and animators! There's several classes, each with their own whacky distinctions, and hopefully we'll see a short for each of 'em. TF2 is due to be released this fall in Valves Half-life 2 'orange box', which will include HF2 Ep. 1 and 2 (the episodic 'sequel' to Half-Life 2) Team Fortress 2, and 'Portals', a bonus 'puzzle-shooter' based in the Half-Life story.
