TF2 Soldier Movie

Valve announces the promised (story) Soldier movie from Team Fortress 2 is now available within Steam, showing off the second class in their upcoming multiplayer shooter. The clip is also available for download from 3D Downloads, FileFront, and Shacknews, and the news is accompanied by a Soldier bio:

Name: Soldier
Role: Offense
Weapons: Rocket Launcher / Shotgun / Shovel
Favorite World War: 2
Special Ability: Rocket Jump

Bio: Though he wanted desperately to fight in World War 2, the Soldier was rejected from every branch of the U.S. military. Undaunted, he bought his own ticket to Europe. After arriving and finally locating Poland, the Soldier taught himself how to load and fire a variety of weapons before embarking on a Nazi killing spree for which he was awarded several medals that he designed and made himself. His rampage ended immediately upon hearing about the end of the war in 1949.

No... I'm not. If I wanted a demo for Havok with that portal system from Prey, I'd ask for it. If I wanted more episodic, completely irrelevant Half-Life 2 content I'd ask for it. I don't think anyone was clamoring for either.

We were, however, and still are, clamoring for Team Fortress. But I'm not salivating enough to give my money away for shit I don't want to get something I do.

"Hey, let's turn on some music. Maybe we can hear that new song by that bad ass band."

PHJF, "Nah, I might hear other music."



Also, I think I figured out what PHJF means. Pretty Horny Jacko Fucker. You remember Jacko right? PHJF fucks him every night.

You guys want a gameplay footage?

This came out a few weeks ago...

Now that looks sweet, I had mixed feeling about the "cartoon" approach but after seeing it in motion it was definitely a step in the right direction. I think I'm getting a little hyped over TF2 again after about 8+ years of waiting for it

I'm never satisfied:
Needs less bling from scripted movie sequences and more gameplay vids.

Whoa. Brush up on your history a bit and then see if the joke makes any sense. Hint: Pay attention to the dates.

How did he go on a nazi killing spree in Poland, in 2007?

Ok, so with the music, art style and design you don't get that it doesn't take place in 2007?

Just sayin. The joke makes no sense. They shoulda said the soldier tried to go on a nazi killing spree, not that he actually did go on one.

Umm yeah.

My point that you so spectacularly missed still stands, however. After all.. you're buying the bundle, aren't you??

Mmmmhmm. Me too.

The person had their brightness turned way too far up, but it's not like you can't see what's happening. This game looks almost as amazing in gameplay footage as it does in the vids.

Thats what I am talking about. THANK YOU!
Shows the interface, some goodies, movement, etc etc etc.

That is 10x better that cinematic.

TF2 is the only thing that interests me.

We may be in the minority here, but TF2 is also the only thing that interests me.

I'm still waiting for a multiplayer game to replace the original team fortress for me. TFC was lame, imo.

I would think they will do something else via Steam - why in hell would we have to buy everything again? This would be the year of the duck screw from developers.

Wonder if the OMM guys were responsible for this.

And who the hell cares about seeing gameplay anyway? The game is being sold as part of a bundle every living man, woman, and child in the known universe is going to buy and adore, so what difference would it make?

Shut the fuck up, TF2 is the only thing that interests me. I have a Computer Gaming World featuring TF2 on the cover; incidentally, it pits it in a preview battle versus Unreal Tournament and Quake III Arena.

Good for you -- try not to get the pages stuck together.

(Just so you know.. that little winky guy up there ^^^ means you probably shouldn't take what I'm saying too seriously)

My point that you so spectacularly missed still stands, however. After all.. you're buying the bundle, aren't you??

Woah, you see that? I signed my name!!!!!

Is that like my rubber stamp of approval?
Maybe I just like seeing my name?
Perhaps I'm making sure I don't forget how to spell it?
Maybe I need to make sure who wrote it?



LOL!!! HAHAHAH!!!! HEHEHEHEH!!! MUHAHAHHAH!!!!
Creston. LMFAO!!! HAHHAHAHAHAHHAHHAHHAHAHHA!!!!!!!!!

How dare Valve interfere with T2's newsblitz. I demand that this article be removed & replaced with another Bioshock article at once! preferably one in which Creston cries like a little girl & then signs his name like he's our girlfriend treating him badly. I laugh every time I see his name signed.
