Over on the Team Fortress 2 website, something called “Pyromania” is in full swing. They’ve got some new items, a new level, and so on. But what we really wanted to see was the new Meet the Pyro video, am I right? After years of waiting, we are finally given the last of the 9 character intro videos from Valve Software, the introduction and back story for the most mysterious of the Team Fortress characters, and it’s… it’s…

I’ll wait for you to go watch it, just in case you haven’t yet.

Done? Good. As I was saying, and as you probably just found out, it’s kind of a letdown. Yes, it has the excellent production quality that we’ve come to expect from the videos of the Meet the Team series, but beyond the initial funny twist, I thought there wasn’t much to it. Speaking of production quality, though, that’s just what the community will be jam packing their very own videos with now that Valve has introduced Source Filmmaker (beta). It’s the tool they use to create their own cinematic videos, like Meet the Pyro. I’m looking forward to seeing what kinds of great videos show up on the web in the near future…

What did you think of Meet the Pyro and the rest of Pyromania? Got some great ideas for your own films with Source Filmmaker? Leave a comment!
