Valve seems to have built Source Filmmaker entirely for the purpose of making hilarious Team Fortress 2 shorts. We’re not complaining, just noting an obvious fact. But this latest short is simultaneously the funniest and most ambitious.
At fifteen minutes long, this short really has it all; romance, comedy, violence. It’s essentially about the Scout and his crush on Miss Pauling, the assistant to the Administrator and the woman who ensures that none of the mercenaries go to jail for all the ridiculous stunts that they pull. The team discovers that they have three days to live, thanks to a teleporter malfunction.
And if the Scout is going to get Miss Pauling to go out on a date with him before he cacks it, he’s going to have to do the unthinkable and work with his single worst enemy. Yes, he’s going to have to suck it up and listen to the Spy.
After this we’re just left with one question: How long before Valve starts making TF2 features? Because this is better than half the stuff we see in theaters.
