Seems like we will finally see "Meet the Pyro" ...

#1 Posted by 2HeadedNinja (1623 posts) -

Last night (well last night in europe) Valve posted a Blog Post:

Mmmmph mmmmph, mmmmm mmmmmp mmmmmph. Mmmmmph mpm! Mmmmmph mph mm! Hm mmmmmph, hmmmmph mm mmmmmph mmmmmph!

People smarter than me figured out that this is morse code for "Monday" :)

This is probably what will air on Adult Swim.

I like the Pyro. He's the only character I was any good with. I can't wait to meet him.

Maybe they will finally reveal whether pyro's a guy or girl.

It's just a trailer, why is it so highly anticipated?  
Of a game that came out 5 years ago..

#7 Posted by Maystack (906 posts) -

Hey guys, I had a thought. What if the pyro wasn't a man...it was a woman?!

#8 Posted by 49th (2758 posts) -

Yep, they have had a whole ARG with clues about it. There were QR codes and everything.

Can you imagine the hype around a trailer that explained G-man from Half-Life?

Yeah, same concept applies here.

You know they AREN'T going to take the Pyro's mask off OR talk. They just aren't going to do that.

However, everyone is still going to nerdgasm

Because it's a beloved character, in a beloved game, that has spark a vast amount of hilarious speculation. It's also the last "Meet The..." video.

Actually the game is still played by a ton of people. Especially now that it's Free to Play.

Still one of the most played games on steam.....

#33 Posted by Lanechanger (478 posts) -

The "Meet The" trailers are great, for a game that's just about killing the other team or capturing their territory, they've managed to breathe a lot of life and personality into the classes.

When has Valve time ever stopped people from caring about a Valve project?

That's what I get for engaging in hyperbole. I didn't actually think people weren't playing it, just that its kinda WoW like in that it still has tons of players and yet people don't talk about it much anymore.

It's ok, we forgive you.

At long last!!! But.. What will happen after that? Meet The Saxton Hale?!

#38 Posted by MikeGosot (3227 posts) -

I doubt Pyro is a woman. He's dubbed by a man.

#39 Posted by JCHenderson (123 posts) -

@MikeGosot: By that logic Bart Simpson should be voiced by a guy. ; )

True. But thinking about it, there are a lot of male characters voiced by girls, but i don't know a single female character voiced by a guy.  My point still stands! Kind of...
#41 Posted by Ninja_Welshman (486 posts) -

I love the TF2 character videos. My fav has to be Heavy Weapons Guy, closely followed by Sandvich ("MY BLOOD! HE PUNCHED OUT ALL MY BLOOD!") and Spy. Glad to see there still making them.

Omg, I'm pretty hype! Pyro was the first class I ever played in TF2 but now I play soldier! Can't freaking wait to see what the patch will bring and the video too! OMG!! THE VIDEO!!

That will be fantastic! Because it seems so unlikely at this point that it will surely come as a big surprise to everyone.

You know what? If this isn't followed up with a Team Fortress cartoon announcement, I will be very disappointed in Valve. If the Meet The trailers proved anything, it's that their cinematics team know how to create characters. They made eight compelling trailers that gave life and personality to player classes. I mean, really, who the fuck does that?

#47 Posted by joshthebear (2700 posts) -

Hype! Pyro is my second favorite class behind the Demoman.

I know. I want a Team Fortress 2 film in the film theaters. I'll be damned if they don't win any Oscars.
