    Valve (on the whole) makes some damn impressive games. Adult Swim produces... interesting late night content on Cartoon Network. What could they ever have in common?

    The answer: Just enough for a collaboration. Adult Swim has recently posted this promo:
    [​IMG] Adult Swim
    The post also encourages people to sign up for their newsletter ahead of time ("You've been warned.").

    So, what does it all mean? Is this the long fabled announcement of Half-Life 3? Left 4 Dead 3? Portal 3? Team Fortress 3? Ricochet 2? Something Dota 2 related? A brand new IP?

    My money is on them premiering the "Meet the Pyro" short, but this is Valve we're talking about. They just love surprising and trolling their fanbase.

    Only time will tell.

    Well, they've published some pretty damned entertaining stuff by PikPok, so they seem to have a good eye for fun video-game ideas. Throw Valve into the mix, and yeah, I could see a combo on par with peanut butter and chocolate. :P

    I personally hope for something with the outrageousness of adult swim combined with the pure awesome that is valve.

    I would rage if they made a Portal 3. Portal 2 was enough for an eternity.

    I think it'll be something involving TF2. I mean heck, why else would they have the Pyro on the signup screen?

    My money is on them premiering all of the other "Meet the x" shorts we've already seen, but with Adult Swim "humor" leaking out of it.


    Robot Unicorn Attack Evolution on Facebook already has a portal power-up.

    Announcement of TF2 action figures, followed by an entire episode of Robot Chicken starring said figures, with the Meet the Pyro premier during the commercial break afterward.

    I think Gabe accidentally teamed up with Adult Swim because he thought it was a water-based fitness group, and he wanted to get some abs for those summer beach parties..

    You're doing it wrong!

    It could be all that, except the Robot Chicken episode made with the TF2 action figures is Meet the Pyro.
