    It was good.
    I definitely think it was the hardest one to make, as it had completely new content, but it feels like it could have been done better.

    Pyro's voice sounds like a dude even though it's muffled and even has the body structure and height of a guy I am still not clear why his gender is questioned I think what should be asked is if he's really human.

    For some reason I always thought that if the Pyro was female, she would actually be some crazy old grandma as that would match the Pyro's build more than something like this

    The TF2 community is once again divided into 2 opposite sides, first we saw this with the Mann Conomy Update.

    Everyone is throwing shit back and forth at eachother

    And then the Pyro removes its mask and goes (more) insane than it already was.

    Also, this just turned up on the Valve shop



    ...OK?
    Seeing as it comes bundled with an item code I might buy this thing and give the toy to my cousin.

    Dear god.

    I wouldn't be surprised AT ALL if this was inspired by Gabe Newell's facination with My Little Pony.

    Go ahead, rate me dumb. But it seems likely.

    *Insert ragequote here*
    From what i've seen, MLP is based on the cuteness/rainbow genre which is visibly portrayed in the "Meet the Pyro" update. I wouldn't be surprised if it was at the very least inspired by MLP to bring a sense of irony.

    No need to get agressive.

    MLP is based around ponies.
    This is based around stuff like candy land and shit.

    Show me ONE MLP reference that isn't "Oh rainbows that's probably MLP related I guess yeah sure"

    Still waiting for an example. A LOT of things are "Cute" and "Kid friendly".
    You might as well of said "It's like MLP because the color blue is featured and the color blue is also present in MLP!".

    just because you think something is a reference to something else doesn't make it so, or doesn't even make it "inspired by". having a flamethrower in a game doesn't mean it's inspired by the tf2 pyro, for example

    one kid's show isn't the only thing that's been cutesy and colorful in the decades of modern media

    and gabe probably isn't the one thinking up the plots to the meet the team videos. he also probably knows how people view mlp negatively and would be smart to not haphazardly shove it into a game

    I find it coincidential that pretty much all other TF2 major updates/events were (serious) and on-par with the game's (style).

    Gabe Newell admits that he's a fan of the show My Little Pony, and the next major update to TF2 has rainbows, babies, sunshine, and what not.

    I really, really doubt that someone didn't stand up at a brain storming session at Valve and go "It would be ironic if we make the Pyro all loving and carefree" and that was not at all inspired, or at the very least compared to such shows as My Little Pony. Heck, Gabe Newell must've given the green light to O.K. the update. Did he come up with the idea? I don't know. But i'm pretty sure he liked it.

    just because you think something is a reference to something else doesn't make it so, or doesn't even make it "inspired by". having a flamethrower in a game doesn't mean it's inspired by the tf2 pyro, for example

    I'd say it was the easiest for that very reason.. They pulled all this rainbow-dementia shtick from the far left field with no grounding in the TF2 universe.

    well technically it's 1969 in the tf2 universe now

    i'd consider the pyro hallucinating fairly well grounded in reality

    By the way to Anonymuzz and sirdownloadsalot, thanks for replying back to my comments.

    Even though we may disagree, I am glad to read about your insights/views/opinions as to how mine may be mistaken.

    What I don't like, is the systematic rating that goes on with the posts (which is not the fault of either of you).

    Interestingly enough, the ones who always rate my comments dumb and both of your comments good are always the same people, and some (if they even read the comments to begin with) are My Little Pony fans which (probably) bias their ratings.

    I'd honestly rather have them comment as to why my comments are rated as so, rather then receiving no input, just a rating, and being rated constantly.

    I just find it a bit cowardly. Maybe they don't have time to reply back, or they thing you're doing a better job at defending your point. But I still find it cowardly.

    Also is it just me or have the "Meet The" videos become showcases for new items?
    to me it seems more like "hey we already made these models and animations lets throw them in to shut those damn ponies up"

    I see what you're doing there and it still doesn't contribute to anything. Sure, the idea that the pyro has been running around spreading happiness and smiles is amusing, but it's still rather boring.

    clearly im expecting too much from the team at this point~

    truthfully what else did you expect
