    Adult Swim doing a Team Fortress 2-related project with Valve

    Like This Thread!
    http://www.adultswim.com/promos/valve/

    No idea what's going on, but TF2 is somehow going to be involved in an on-air something or other it looks like.

    Valve has put together a number of their own productions based on the game which are viewable over at http://www.teamfortress.com/movies.php (watch the Meet the... series. It's awesome), so it's not unprecedented for them to dip into comedy-land by any means.

    The long-fabled Meet the Pyro is also rumored to be released soon, so this may have something to do with that. It's the final character profile in the series, so maybe they want it to be a big event when they reveal him/her?
    Yup. It's a signature. Go away if you're expecting something interesting here.

    Just been confirmed. Whatever this project is, it is not a new show based on any Valve properties. So I wouldn't get my hopes up for something that big.

    I'm placing my guesses on a bunch of promos featuring TF2 characters at the very least.

    Actually, I think he was referring to people thinking he meant a new anime show.

    That is because some people assumed that this TF2 show was going to be on Toonami. Therefore, they thought it was going to take Deadman Wonderland's slot when it finished.

    I don't see how that makes any sense though. Considering that TF2 isn't really anime-material.

    Besides, that tweet came out today, and the Valve-page is recent too. I have no doubt that they are related to each other.

    I hope it's something like this:

    ASF: You will download Adult Swim promos and intros because we told you to.
    [bump worthy]: You will download Adult Swim bumps because ASF doesn't have them.
    ---------------------
    Welcome back Toonami. I hope Adult Swim treats you better than Cartoon Network did.

    What if this turns out to be a bunch of Early Cuyler hats for TF2?
    Joris: Your story makes me want to have a little brother, Papycha. Isn't that weird?
    Kerubim: Don't worry, Jojo. You have your whole life to meet new brothers. Some you will choose, others will ruin your life, and others still will make it worth living...

    That would be nothing short of awesome.

    Hmm, well if there is still a chance it could be a tv series, I think that would be awesome! As long as [adult swim] doesn't ruin it with bad flash or stupid humor.

    I hope this means we get Meet the Pyro soon. I mean there was a blog post on the TF2 webpage recently that was in Mmmphs, and there might be a new ARG in TF2 right now with certain items right now. If we do get a TF2 series, I welcome it with open arms.

    Actually, now that I think about it. Adult Swim-themed hats and/or other [as]-themed in-game items sound pretty plausible, considering that that is what the game is notorious for.

    Still doubting a series possibility, especially since it was shot down on Twitter itself. Granted, he could be just pulling our chains to get us to lower our guards. I mean, I do recall him saying that Toonami wasn't going to come back. Wouldn't be the first time he's pulled a trick like that.

    That aside, I'll be genuinely surprised if it's a new show. If it is, what day and slot do you guys think it'll occupy? As I said earlier, some speculate it will take Deadman Wonderland's slot when it ends. Though I'll reiterate, I really don't see TF2's relation to anime.

    In other news:
    https://twitter.com/Clarknova1/statu...45342259556352

    I wonder if that's in any relation to this Valve project. I mean, they did imply on the [as]-Valve page that they were going to announce it via promo. That's just common sense.
