Since the beginning, Team Fortress 2 has been about 2 teams, Red vs Blue. The goofy back story is that there are two Mann brothers, Blutarch and Redmond, who are fighting over gravel, which they see as the most precious resource on Earth. But Valve recently teased the existence of a third brother named Gray. That would mean a third team. OH SHIT.
Not just a couple days after Valve released the TF2 “Meet the Pyro” video, Thinkgeek, in cooperation with Valve, now have the Pyro’s balloonicorns for sale. Now you can have these cute creatures bouncing all about your house whilst you set people ablaze.
Not one, but two cool things from Valve today. First, is the long-awaited “Meet the Pyro” video, which doesn’t give us much more insight about the enigmatic Pyro other than he is truly batshit crazy.
Sometime this week, we’ll learn what happens when you combine Adult Swim and Team Fortress 2. An animated TF2 series? That would be awesome. Adult Swim themed TF2 costumes? Oh, how sweet that would be as well. What is it? WHO KNOWS.
If you’re wondering what Valve has planned for Team Fortress 2 this year, it sounds like some pretty cool things. They’re finally going to be making a “Meet the Pyro” video that might shed a little light on the most mysterious character as well as some secret project that’s neither a new map nor more hats.
Valve and Dark Horse have joined forces to bring us a hardcover edition of comics: over two hundred pages of story and awesome new art in three fan-favorite series: Portal, Team Fortress 2 and Left 4 Dead. While it adds new backstory to these games, it also includes some art you may have seen before on these very internet pages. You can preorder here, the book comes out November 16.
