Valve reveals 'Meet The Medic' outtakes

Valve reveals 'Meet The Medic' outtakes photo



There's been a long wait for the latest installment of Valve's "Meet The..." Team Fortress 2 videos, but it was worth it. The German medic's video was one of the highlights of the series and now Valve have posted some behind-the-scenes info on how the trailer was created, including some video outtakes. 

One of the most interesting things revealed in the post, is that Valve considered making the "Meet The Medic" video an origin story, consisting of a series of flashbacks whilst the medic addressed the camera. There was also a sequence where the medic makes the discovery that leads to the creation of his medigun. Eventually, a lot of the ideas were nixed. Valve decided to stick to the core of a lot of TF2 players' experience with the medic: uber-charging a Heavy and wasting a bunch of dudes. 

The fact that Valve can create quality videos with such rich characters, from a game that's a story-free, multiplayer-only game, is amazing. Now the wait is on for the (presumably) last video in the series that will feature the Pyro. Will Valve finally confirm the tubby arsonist's gender? Considering it took two years for the Meet The Medic video to be released, that revelation maybe some time off.

Dance the night away with custom taunts in TF2

Are you a taunter? I'm not. Okay, well, I try not to be. But then developers go and design achievements around taunting X amount of times, and it'd be rude not to oblige them probably. Or there's some jerk in Awesomenauts who...more

I can't even play Demoman this well in my dreams

I've contemplated returning to Team Fortress 2, if only for a few matches, but I'll probably get my ass kicked. After watching this skillful highlight reel from Demoman player Kaidus, I'm sure of it. This guy knows what you're going to do before you do.more

Watch Dogs is better with Team Fortress 2 characters

STBlackST did a terrific job with this Team Fortress 2 short, Hat_Dogs. It's a riff on Watch Dogs' "hack everything" mentality using characters we actually like. Impressive, and -- with the inclusion of that bread line -- timely.more
