Team Fortress 2 Live and Let Spy

Machinima is the art of manipulating a computer graphics engine in order to create a cinematic production. This art form was popularized in the mainstream by Red vs. Blue, a Halo machinima series that has been running since 2003.

There have been plenty of impressive productions since then, but this past weekend, we were treated to one of the best yet.
