Team Fortress 2 Saxxy Award winner takes the classes up in the air

Valve has named the winners of this year's Saxxy Awards, celebrating the best in Team Fortress 2 machinima, and this year's overall winner takes everyone's favorite characters into the friendly skies for some not-so-friendly conflict.


Let's hit the lighter side of gaming news to end today. Valve has named the winner of this year's Saxxy Awards, celebrating the best in Team Fortress 2 machinima.

The winner was a collaborative effort from among TF2's more creative fanbase. Dunkle was the person behind this year's Overall Winner, along with Salade au Thon, Sir Delak, MechaFourth, Jeffrey Brice Music, Musetrigger, Overpovered, Hunternif, SedimentarySocks, and a few other Steam Workshop helpers. The winning video is called Turbulence, which tells a tale of dozens of Team Fortress 2 classes all aboard their own plane. Soon enough, Scout Airlines finds itself running afoul of other commuter jets flown by the Soldier, Heavy, and Spy.

The result is delightful hilarity, so be sure to check it out below. The full list of winners can be found on the Source Filmmaker website.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
