They are all awesome.

My favourite is the heavy weapons guy, that one has amazing animation, great timing... just amazing stuff.

But one question, whats the reason for all these shorts? Is a new version coming out or something. I love them but from a marketing standpoint whats the product they are pushing just team fortress 2? Hope it works i guess.

How about just for fun? Some companies do still know how to have that. :)

It doesn't hurt to advertise a little as well (the single release of TF2 only came out recently). Hell, Coke does it every other month and that product never changes.

Based on the end of movie it looks like it just came out in Europe a couple of days ago, so I think that's the reason they are advertising some more.

Ha! Valve rocks at pretty much everything... except punctuality. We'd get an episode a year at best.

I think that's absolutely it; it's investing in their fan base. The first three were great promotional tools and the community begged for more. I can't think of a better use of any animator downtime they have up there at Valve then this.

TF2 maybe have just come out in Europe as a single purchase but they've had access to Orange Box as long as we have. Besides, anyone who buys TF2 and not Orange Box is cheating themselves.

i love these videos... great timing and animation.

i would love to see a mini-series made from these guys. kinda like an A-Team like show of them just doing what they do. i hope they make shorts for all the characters.

Valve does have a way of taking their sweet time getting things out, but most of the animations have been great. I can't wait to see what they do with the Pyro.

The more I play this game the more I am loving it.
