Team Fortress 2 Character Trailers- Valve

I've been in a lab all night watching a little bar scroll slowly across the screen, rendering out this month's school project one pixel at a time. There's a comic in the works, I promise. Just not for today. I think by Monday I'll owe you three.

Valve is one of the leaders in the gaming industry. If you haven't heard of Half-Life, I would wager that you haven't played a video game in the last five years or so. But don't worry, I'm not sharing video game screen shots today.

Team Fortress 2 is a multiplayer first person shooter that was recently released as part of Valve's "The Orange Box" (which is a great deal, by the way). Prior to release Valve put out a series of animations introducing some of the character classes in the game. Taking heavily from the style of "The Incredibles", these things are pure gold. Great animation with hilarious, well defined personalities, this stuff just goes to show that film companies aren't the only ones capable of high quality character animation.
