  • Catching up on manga

    1 week ago

    Raltrios

    For a few months I was on a manga slump in addition to my anime slump, but I'm starting to get caught back up. I'm now up to date on UQ Holder, Blade Dance, and Shieldbro. I've also started a few new ones, the most prominent of which being Kenja no Mago, Wortentia Senki, and Nejimaki Seirei Senki: Tenkyou no Alderamin. All of them are fantastic, and I highly recommend them. Well, Wortenia Senki doesn't have much to it yet, so it's not in the same league as the other two. I've still got plenty I need to catch up on though, like How I stalked some dude with an exposed nipple and stumbled upon the Zenithian Sword.

    Also, can't tell you how good it feels for Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari to have risen to the #1 ranked manga on the site where I read my manga when I'd discovered it the day the first chapter released. It's good to see that it's become so popular. And it really is a good read.


    And now for something completely different. Behold:

  • Rooster Teeth & You: What keeps RT alive?

    1 month ago

    Darkskills Gorlin Goltz

    Today, Burnie's latest vlog was released on youtube. For those who don't have the time to watch it, he and Matt discussed how it is that Rooster Teeth makes money to produce shows, run events, etc. and that essentially broke down like this...


    #1 Advertising

    All the commercials you see before the videos on this site or youtube generate a relatively good chunk of money for the company. They also displayed an excerpt from Parade magazine featuring Camp Camp as an example of this. 


    #2 Subscriptions, also know as FIRST Membership

    As it's been a huge discussion point since the time restriction on the latest season of RvB, this still makes sense. The community largely supports the company. 


    #3 Licenses & Royalties 

    For those who don't know what this is, a good example would be the version of RWBY that was done in Japan, with the Japanese voice actors. The company that did that paid Rooster Teeth in order to legally create it. 


    #4 Events... RTX, Let's Play Live, and secret future events

    While some of the money from ticket sales goes to the vendors and overall funding for events, Rooster Teeth still makes money from these amazing events. 


    #5 Merchandise... Shirts, Music, DvD's 

    Essentially, digital or physical purchases made from the RT store, including Double-Gold Subscription boxes. 


    "So what's the best way for someone with extra income to support RT?"

    Coming straight from Burnie and Matt, the biggest way to help the company is with direct contact. This means buying products directly from the RT store, watching videos on the site instead of Youtube, or simply just being a subscriber. 


    The point of the vlog was basically to say that, despite the Youtube-based

    "Ad-pocalypse," Rooster Teeth as a company is far more secure financially then other companies, and it is thanks to subscribers and the community that they don't have to constantly adapt and change things to survive. 


  • Nearly Finished Unpacking

    So a couple weeks ago, I mentioned a few life updates, like moving to a new place. And over the last week I've gotten just about everything unpacked, stored in the closet, and all the cool shit hung on the wall. And the coolest stuff went in the basement.

    Having the whole space pretty much all to myself is going to be pretty awesome, because it means I get to do stuff like keep my green screen up all the time! 


    20170423_184317.jpg


    I'm going to like having room to actually spread out while I'm streaming, instead of being cramped in the same small room where my bed was in the old place. Still playing with the lighting and what not, and working on some back end stuff for the new channel, but it's be a pretty solid couple weeks.

  • Woodyman's Backloggery #1 - Kirby: Planet Robobot

    1 month ago

    If you remember, many weeks ago I promised a new blog series called Woodyman's Backlog. This series sees me playing all games in my backlog in a random order and writing a quick review. The blog didn't even get to episode 1 before I hit a complication.


    350px-PS2_laser_04-bottom-open.jpg


    I KNEW that I didn't want to start writing when I couldn't play more games, and I KNEW I didn't want to skip around on my backlog list so instead I decided to wait until everything was fixed.


    Well now it is, so let's get started with the first review. Before I do, please keep in mind that these reviews are meant to be quick. I'm not going deep into the games and I'm not doing research, just some impressions and if I had fun.


    Review #1 – Kirby: Planet Robobot

    uSvbJ3D.png


    I'm a HUGE fan of the Kirby series even though I haven't played many of the games. This is because the only Nintendo consoles I've ever owned was a NES and a Wii. I've played a bit of Super Star in my emulating days, and thought that was the best ever, but Kirby: Planet Robobot comes close.


    2yelmmu.png


    I was a bit skeptical when I began this game. The main gimmick of this Kirby game is that Kirby gets to ride around in a mech. Since the Kirby series is all about the power-ups, I was worried that the mech would become a central focus instead of the power-ups. I was SOOOOOOOO happy to be wrong. Not only does Kirby: Planet Robobot have awesome new and returning power-ups (or inhale abilities if you want to call it that) like leaf, poison, ESP, sword, but also the mech can have it's own power-ups with its own move list. This addition to the Kirby formula has you mixing and matching power-ups that you've forgotten or dismissed. I've never been a huge fan of the Electricity power-up, but combined with the mech, I was an unstoppable lightning shooting machine of death... and I loved every minute of it.


    1fTCysU.png


    The game itself is your typical Kirby fare. The goal is to get from the beginning of the stage to the end. You can collect secrets and unlock secret paths along the way, but the ultimate goal is to get through each level, to complete each world, to fight some bosses. Speaking of the bosses, this game has some AWESOME ones! There's a mechanized Whispy Woods, a Mecha Knight, some Dedede clones, and the craziest end boss in a Nintendo game that I have ever seen. If you beat this game, you know what I'm talking about.

    fdkHCZ5.png

    The game can get a teeny tiny bit repetitive towards the middle, but overall it's a a ton of fun and I'm glad I played it. Even now that I beat it, there's plenty to do with collecting all the bits, and new game modes to play through. If you like Kirby, you'll like this one too.


    Kirby: Planet Robobot gets a score of 11 out of 11.... or something.

  • Server admin steps down amid scandal!

    2 months ago

    Evon
    No scandal, just kidding.

    But I (Ryon) am going to give over most of my server responsibilities to @Triguntri.


    She's a young go-getter and will hopefully give the server more attention than I have lately.


    I've said it about a million times, Minecraft is a very cyclical game. I go through periods where punching a blocky tree sounds like the most fun I could have, but other times I want to do something else.


    It has been over 4 years of running the server and this is my longest downturn in Minecraft, so I feel like I should hand it off so someone can do right by everyone.


    Tri and Ice will be in control, Ice's duties will remain mostly the same, and Tri will handle more the day-to-day and quality of life stuff. 


    She may take a little time to get used to the systems and whatnot, but she's a smart cookie, so I can see her doing some cool stuff that I look forward to playing as part of the community when my Minecraft lust returns.


    I'm not quitting or any of that crap, I'll still be around to help and advise, I just don't want to be "in charge" right now & I feel like the server deserves more than I have to give currently. I will still swing the ban hammer when necessary, so keep true to Rule #1 at all times!


    I'm hoping this will free up my mind to get back to building stuff for the server, like my house or some games and possibly play other games with community members.


    Cheers to fun!

  • Rooster Teeth Fashion Feature: #RTCommunityDay #MerchMarch Challenge St Paddy's!

    2 months ago

    ailsarocks FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Community Stylist

    Hello lovelies! Happiest #merchmarch #RTCommunityDay to you all! A massive shoutout to all of you who have been taking part in the #merchmarch Challenge, you all look amazing and it's been lovely to meet new community members and see your awesome RT style! I'm delighted to see so many both here and on Twitter taking part, keep it up we're halfway there!


    But now, to the latest RT Box! This one was Mardi Gras themed! Here's an inventory list of what we got in this month's box:


    - Mardi Gras themed note from Jack, complete with a fancy poem.
    - Mardi Gras Masquerade themed Achievement Hunter Shirt.
    - Funhaus Goblet cup.
    - Game Attack shot glass necklace.
    - Rooster Teeth hot/cold heart shaped pack.
    - Double Gold Star wristbands.
    - #1 Rooster Teeth Gold Card (1 in 5 Signed by Matt Hullum).
    - Orcs Must Die Unchained Game Code.


    Now Mardi Gras isn't a festival celebrated too much in the UK so I had to research a bit into it. Mardi Gras was on Tuesday, the 28th of February, so by the time I got the RT Box it was already too late. However, with the shirt being a bit wacky and green, I thought that it would be perfect for any St Patrick's Day parties coming up! St Patrick's Day is this Friday the 17th March so here's a potential outfit style to rock while you're knocking back the Guinness!


    IMG_4823_zpsoshyeglr.jpg


    Like I said last RT Community Day, I like to experiment with colour, and this month is no different. Looking at the shirt, it combines bright green with a rusty orange, as well as splashes of black and white. So I wanted to continue and expand upon this rust and green theme, adding in some texture and pattern for some additional style points as well as using the black and white as the foundations to this look. Rust and green is usually one of my favourite combinations for autumn, however to give it a spring twist, use bright or pastel versions of Autumn's more muted tones. I used a loose waterfall style coverup to keep this look comfy and relaxed, though do feel free to smarten up the look with a more structured, perhaps blazer style cover up. And if you're off to a party, remember: dress to excess!


    I can't wait to see the green-themed looks popping up on Friday or thereabouts. Remember, if you want to take part in the #merchmarch Challenge, take a picture with you in your RT Merch and tag me here on the RT Site @ailsarocks or tag either me or RT is Fashionable over on Twitter. Don't forget to use the #merchmarch hashtag too!


    As always my dears: Stay Fashionable  barbara

  • Four in February 2017: How This Year Fared

    2 months ago

    Elusia Archmage Extraordinaire

    Now that it's March, Four in February is done for the year. On the games I planned this year... I didn't beat a single one. I didn't even play any of them except for a little bit of Shantae and the Pirate's Curse.


    What I did do however, was beat a different set of 4 games, some of which probably not many have heard of. Figured the games might be worth talking about a little bit.


    Game #1: Alwa's Awakening

    A game that actually came out during Four in February (it released February 2nd), this one was on my radar for awhile. It's essentially a slightly easier, more fantasy-themed Battle Kid - a new platformer styled like - and as difficult as - most classic NES games. The difficulty part deserves some emphasis, as there's a bit of a difficulty spike after the first half, mainly in a combination of hazard setups and a small amount of checkpoint starvation. It's not a complete deal breaker, but anyone coming into the game casually might not like it so much.


    As someone who really likes 8-bit art/music style and metroidvanias in general, I personally loved playing this one. Hoping the semi-setup for a potential sequel can turn into something later.


    Game #2: Kirby's Star Stacker

    250px-KirbyStarStacker.jpg


    This one was entirely on accident, cause I didn't know the game could really be beat. I always thought Kirby's Star Stacker was an endless game (there is an endless mode though). Once I found out it's just 5 runs in Round Mode though, I ended up getting through it rather quickly.


    The game's super simple - trap stars between 2 of the same animal to catch them, and collect a certain number to clear the round. It was simple enough that I beat Super Hard difficulty in minutes without losing once. The only real challenge I had was near the end of Insane difficulty, and that's only cause I never knew the mechanic for pressing up to swap blocks without rotating.


    As a cheap Virtual Console game, it's not too bad, though I'd recommend getting it at a discount.


    Game #3: Bleed 2

    Bleed 2 went by so quickly I forgot it even released in February. It was a short and sweet game, so I didn't think of counting it, but never the less it was a game I beat in February. There's not much to say outside of what's shown in the trailer. I haven't tried co-op, but it sounds like a good way to shake things up a little. The game's easily worth picking up.


    Game #4English Country Tune

    Probably the game not many have heard of in this list, English Country Tune is... interesting.Probably one of my favorite puzzle games in recent memory from how it's set up. Simple ideas are shown - push a ball into a goal, push a cube off the map - but the ways to pull off the tasks get more complicated over time. With a couple small exceptions, the puzzles changed relatively well enough that nothing felt overwhelming. Even the exceptions, once figured out, made future puzzles easier to understand.


    This was easily one the best random game I've gotten from the many game bundles I've purchased over the years.


    Game #5Wario Land 3

    ...yeah, I actually beat more than 4 games this time. Good thing too since Bleed 2 and Kirby's Star Stacker were on the quick side.


    I hadn't planned on playing Wario Land 3 for awhile, mainly because I still haven't played 2 of the games before it (I actually have the Virtual Boy one, but no system to play it on). Watching the game on a stream recently though made me want to pick it up sooner. It's hard for me to say what I think of the game mainly because of how different it felt from other platformers I've played. Being essentially immortal for the entire game - while not completely new to me (Bit.Trip Runner also has that mechanic) - felt so unnatural, yet it worked so well. The powerups were well spaced out, and the levels were well made to use them. This felt worth picking up, and makes me want to play the rest of the series sooner rather than later.


    Game #6Castlevania

    Castlevania_NES_box_art.jpg




    Castlevania was the one game in my list last year that I never beat. I reached Death, but couldn't beat him no matter how much I tried. This year, I decided to fix that.


    There's not much I can really say on this one except... I honestly didn't like this one as much as I thought I would. Maybe it's because I was into the later games more. I will say, I do appreciate the game for what it is.


    While my original Four in February plans didn't pan out, I'd still say this year was an overall success. There's still plenty to do for the backlog overall though. Even with 6 games down last month, there's still nearly 850 games left, with quite a few more coming in the next few days. With that in mind, I'm considering a couple games for what's dubbed More in March. For the moment, I'm planning on playing through Horizon Zero DawnHollow Knight, and Blaster Master Zero. Time permitting, maybe I'll get through Breath of the WIld and Super Bomberman R, the latter supposedly being pretty short overall. For now though, I'll at least take some comfort in knowing I made some progress on the backlog.

    It's been a while. For those who don't know me, I'm the guy who ran for featured user and got it, the dude who crowdfunded a RT ramp stamp, the man who hosts the longest running RT community podcast (Glib Shark), and ran a modestly successful RT community event (RT Philly) after back to back hostings of the original fan event (RVBTO). 


    For those who do, a few updates:

  • Tabletop Tales: Things Sent to the Moon

    3 months ago

    Hanako23

    So I was bored one day and was cleaning out a few documents on my computer when I came across something fun. Back when I was regularly involved in playing Tabletop over a few systems (D&D, World of Darkness and one infamous GURPS game) I had kept track on a few things that our DM had banned from our WoD game, or as he put it: "It's gone! Sent to the Moon!"


    So without further adeu....


    Things that have been BANNED from game (WoD):

    #1 The Wasp Knife

    #2 ANYTHING resembling a Ford Fiesta

    #3 Tuck-tuck-boom-boom. That is all (It's like a Tonka Truck with a Cannon!)

    #4 The Gunslinger Merit (stop asking Jim)

    #5 Fencing Fighting Style. Seriously, WTF guys?!

    #6 Sojutsu Fighting Style. ALSO BANNED

    #7 ALL the benfits of the Stillness Shroud. Seriously, you guys only get 1 dot

    #8 Imbuing and Item as a Mage

    #9 Sasha Grey

    #10 Stacking Flamethrower Damage

    #11 Tazers and any Tazer related items 


    I should probably say most of these took place over 1 campaign.....Our group really did try out outdo themselves on creatvie ways to break the game...


    (on a side note the Moon's looking rather crowded nowadays...)

  • Favorite Winter Areas in Games

    3 months ago

    Zodia195

    In video games, majority of people tend not to like ice areas found in games, at least from what I've seen.  Well I am in the minority that love them.  Also, I feel the same way about Water areas, but since we're in the middle of Winter, I'd figure give my 2nd favorite season some love with my Top 10 Favorite Winter areas.  This can be anything from snow to ice.  I will be including both dungeons and regular areas.  I am only giving myself one rule though.


    One area per franchise.


    Also, please remember this is my opinion too and let me know what winter areas you like.


    10. Weddell Sea

    Game- Endless Ocean: Blue World

    HOR2.jpg


    Man is this game so underrated.  What I love most about this game is how low key it is (for the most part, there are some tense moments in the story).  And I just love exploring all of the areas.  There are 2 areas where you have to swim in cold ocean water, the Arctic Ocean in North Canada and the Weddell Sea in the Antarctic area.  I picked Weddell Sea because there's more to do there than the Arctic, even though that area has some of my favorite wildlife in the game.  Anyway, in this particular area you can explore among the ice burgs and even find a huge underwater cave that leads to the area of that picture above.  You can even break through the water to see the 'dry area' of this cavern.  And hearing Celtic Women sing Irish Dream when you first enter this section is just so calming.  You will find plenty of wildlife here and on top of the iceburgs you will get the chance to see the Aurora Borealis if you surface at night time when the sky is clear.  Truly a lovely area to explore.

    9. DK's Snowboard Cross
    Game- Mario Kart Wii
    DKsummit.jpg

    I actually had a hard time picking my favorite Winter track from the Mario Kart franchise.  It was either this one or Mount Wario.  In the end I went with this track because I had fun with it non-Stop, from being shot out of a canon to using the slops to do tricks.  My only complaint was, if this was a DK track, why did they use Mario for the huge ice figure in it?  Lol.  Oh well.  Even though the track was made out of snow, it didn't feel like snow since you are going fast (unless you run into the thicker snow areas or the shy guys).  DK tracks tend to be the most fun, so I can't wait to see what they do next in the future.

    8. Sea of Ice
    Game- Disney's The Little Mermaid
    Mermaid-13.png

    Well, we're certainly going back in time for this one lol.  This is actually the very first game I defeated hehe.  I am so glad that I finally have another opportunity to talk about this fun game.  Granted it's super easy and short, but I enjoyed this game a lot more than the movie it's based off of.  *Ignores all the boos*  I do blame creators of the game taking liberties with this game since 2 of the 5 areas aren't found in the movie: this level and the next, which is an Underground Volcano.  But I am not here to talk about that level.  I am here to talk about my favorite level in the game.  What I love most about Sea of Ice, is the fact I can actually slide across the ice here and it's so much fun!  The music itself is fun to listen to also.  This happens to be the first ice level I ever encountered too and seeing all of these cool ice effects was a treat.  Having to face a walrus for a boss was fun too.

    7. Winter Isles
    Game- Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch
    26395-287jpg-png.png

    One of my favorite games in recent years is Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch.  A cool feature of the locations of this game how some of them are names after the 4 seasons.  Winter isles is one of my favorite areas of the game.  It's composed of 4 major islands you can explore.  On the largest one having the village of Yule (as seen above) and Glittering Grotto, the dungeon of the area.  This winter area is so pretty!  There may not be as much to do here as in other areas you'll visit, but from doing the sidequests in Yule to facing one of my favorite bosses in the game, I had so much fun in this area.  It also gets a bit funny.  In many winter areas, you actually aren't affected by the cold, but here you area when your party arrives.  It's obvious that you get cold here and you find yourself shivering before you get to Yule, where you receive your winter wear.  Now that's attention to detail hehe.

    6. Snowpeak Mountains
    Game- Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
    Snowpeak_Top.png

    I've only experienced a few winter areas in the Zelda franchise.  In this case it was pretty easy for me to pick a fav, and that was hands down this one.  When you first enter the region, a snowstorm greets you and you can't see a thing.  After getting that big red fish, the only way through the snow is to use your wolf sense.  It's pretty clever way to move, especially if you try walking through this snow at first, you'll sink right on it.  But once you get to the mountain top and everything clears, I remember just being entranced by it because it was so quiet. Than you have a 180 and have to slide down the mountain, which was something I wasn't expecting and it's so much fun, before arriving at the Snowpeak Ruins, which if ya'll would recall, is one of my favorite Zelda dungeons hehe.

    5. Freezeflame Galaxy
    Game- Super Mario Galaxy
    tumblr_o6ee8f1eOw1rrftcdo1_1461937551_co

    Ya'll had to have seen this coming if ya'll remember my favorite Mario Locations.  The "freeze" part of this galaxy is just fun and challenging to do.  Having the ability to skate on ice is a ball.  Getting to the top of the mountain area was enjoyable, but it certainly was no cake walk.  And I had to do it twice.  Mastering the high jump was critical here and taking that leap of faith from the top is always a nail biter.  The "Cold" areas in the Hot and Cold moments were not my favorite but it was interesting, but the idea of ice skating on lava was pretty cool, no pun intended.

    4. Boroque
    Game- Eternal Sonata
    eternal_sonata_baroque.jpeg

    If there was a fairy tale winter kingdom, this be it.  This by far my favorite area of the game.  It's just so enchanting and serene here.  You start out in the palace (seen above) and when you see it from the outside the first time, well, it's breathtaking and I literally gaped when I saw it that first time.  It's no wonder why there's a painter outside painting it hehe.  The city itself has a few sidequests that are fun to do.  In this section I also include the nearby forest before you reach the Temple of Aria.  That one small area you walk through is my favorite area to face foes.  The music in this specific area sounds like a music box is playing is just perfect.  After the tough fight aboard that pirate ship, Baroque was like a winter vacation I really needed hehe.

    3. Snowhorn Tribe Areas
    Game- Starfox Adventures
    1-01-SnowHornWastes.jpg

    I know many people don't like this game because it's more of an adventure rpg rather than the type of game Star Fox is known for.  Seeing how I love this type of game, it never bothered me and I am so happy I can finally give this game some love.  The areas that the Snowhorn tribes watch over are 3, 2 that are on the planet of Sauria (or Dinosaur Planet in this game) and 1 that is in space.  When you are first warped to the first area, Ice Mountain, you definitely get that winter feel.  When it comes to mountain areas in general, I always think there's going to be snow.  But I fell in love with this area when you take that speed mobile down the mountain.  Granted, it's not the fastest I've gown down a mountain in a game, but it's still fun, especially with the shortcuts.  You than arrive in the main area, Snowhorn Wastes and you will be returning here the most with it's quests.  Out of all the dungeons though, Darkice Mines is my favorite.  2/3rds of it is only 'winter' so I'lll only talk about those parts.  I do enjoy the puzzles where you had figure out how to find mechanisms to move forward and at one point you find yourself riding on a snowhorn through a blizzard.  I always look forward to this dungeon.  So I really couldn't pick a favorite particular area since I loved all 3 of them.

    2. St. Heim Mountains
    Game- Grandia II
    28-Update_26_(49).jpg

    Much like how Baroque was like a vacation after a hard pirate ship fight, the St. Heim Mountains area such a relief after an emotional rollercoaster the last area before it had.  This area of the game is pretty much the turning point of the game and I love moving through this mountain area from climbing through the snowcaped mountain trails to traveling under the mountains.  And when you reach St. Heim Papal State and see that cathedral in the mountains in the background, it just is an impressive sight.  You do return to the area near the end of the game too when you have the biggest twist in story happen.  it is night when it happens and it's pretty menacing and chilling let me tell you.  It's amazing how much a location can change simply by changing the lighting.  I have to tell you, it was hard picking between this and my #1.

    Before we get to #1 though, here's a few honorable mentions

    Honorable Mention 1. Frost Cavern
    Game- Pokemon X/Y
    hqdefault.jpg


    Pokemon Y is the first Pokemon game I played and I really enjoyed it.  Frost Cavern in the Mountain area of the Kalos region was a fun area also and I do remember liking the sliding areas.  Only reason why it didn't make the list though was because I initially forgot about it.

    Honorable Mention 2. The Himalayas
    Game- Disney's Ducktales: Remastered
    1374074493-matroxveturagrab-5.jpg

    Man was I excited when I found out one of my childhood favorites was getting remastered.  And man did they go all out.  While this area might have had one of my favorite visuals in the game, it's actually one of my least favorite levels due to a few annoyances like those goats.  It's still fun for the most part, but not enough to make it on the list.

    Honorable Mention 3. Christmas Town
    Game- Kingdom Hearts II
    Christmas-Town-nightmare-before-christma

    While I am not a fan of Nightmare Before Christmas, I do love the Halloween Town from both the first and second Kingdom Hearts games.  In II we finally get to go to Christmas Town and it was a really nice place.  But due to how little there is to do in this section of the world, I didn't put it on the list.  Darn shame, it has one of the sweetest scenes in the game as well as one of the most creative boss battles too.

    1. Glacia
    Game- Skies of Arcadia

    480px-Glacia.jpg

    Yeah, my favorite winter area comes from my 2nd favorite game of all time, Skies of Arcadia.  One thing that I loved about this game was all the versatile lands.  More than halfway through the game you end up going to the "Pole" of the world where the Purple Moon is and it's home to the Land of Ice.  In each land you find things reminiscent of the ancient civilizations.  The ancient city of Glacia was the one that blew me away the most due to it being the only one not to be destroyed by Rains of Destruction that destroyed the world.  This was due to the fact that the city existed underneath the ice.  However, the people of this land didn't survive and were pretty much wiped out.  Saddest thing is, no one knows the exact answer.  You do get hints of what the culture is like, but it still is tragic, especially when all of the other lands still had survivors.  The somber music that is played as you explore this city is haunting and fits the ghost like vibe of the area.  I love this land and the upside down buildings remind me of icicles.  Also one of the saddest and heartwarming scenes happen in this area.  So because of that and the lore and the aesthetics of this place, this is why it's my #1 pick.

    Well I hoped you enjoyed that list.  I love comments so it be awesome for some feedback.  Thanks!

    Hey!

    So, saturday is coming, and the last episode of RWBY volume 4 will be released.


    I've seen many people scared and afraid about what can happen in this episode, since we just have RNJR and Qrow to fight The nuckleave and because of what happened in the end of volume 3, that surprisingly still resonates until nowadays.


    EP 11, showed that out heroines of team RWBY are moving on their way to Mistral, which will be the turning point for the next events in Remnant.

    Adam and his zelots are in Mistral, probably working with Salem in a new plan of destroying the next school, Haven.

    Winter is on ground, getting intel for Ironwood.


    And Raven is there, doing her own business.


    Im not going to say there is no reason to fear, because RT has the fame of being non predictable, and that means that they have an ace of spades hidden somewhere.


    I find very intriguing that, Volume 4 was indeed...curious.

    In comparison to the other volumes, this was by far the most slow but still, lore telling of all.
    You can see that more clearly if you take all the episodes as one.

    This remembers me of how volume 1, 2 and 3 were built up.


    In 1, we were presented to the universe, to the characters, and their actions discovering troubles in their world.


    In 2, were saw how they decided to act, and how they were immature in regards to the whole situation, and that there was much more to happen.


    In 3, we saw their fall, a closure of events in the worse scenario ever. Beacon destroyed, Bonds severed, friends died. Almost too much stuff handle.


    Now in 4, we saw a restart, a new beginning, where all of our heros were learning to deal with new things and they were shown a harsh truth that lied beyond Beacon's walls.


    I guess this volume, have chances to finish with a high degree of climax, but, that'll depend on how thing will follow.
    In many places around the internet, were RWBY is discussed, we can find people:

    - Hoping that JN_R die

    - Hoping they dont die

    - Hoping Raven will save the day

    - Hoping the silvereyes make the difference

    - Fearing that Qrow will try to protect Ruby in his actual state, and that this will be his damnation.



    And there's more assumptions, This 5 are just the most common, or a simplification of the great ammount of other guesses i found here in the forums, in Facebook groups and other places.

    I have already said which is mine, so im not going to speak about it.

    Im very eager to see what will happen and things will follow after this volume ends.

    I believe that volume 5, will be like volume 2 were, a season were the heroes will take steps further, with more action and discoveries.


    I hope we'll see how RWBY will deal with the regroup, and for the love of god, i want to see it, with the emotion that a situation likes truly have.

    They kinda avoided showing emotion in regards to Pyrrhas loss and probably the only momment that they touched the subject was in the Dreams that Ruby had, and Jaune's training.


    There's still a hint to a possible grimm Pyrrha by the way, but...well, i dont know.


    Volume 4 so far has been cool in the best case, and interesting in the worse one,
    and i hope that it gets a good closure.

  • Year of the Rooster. Year of Illustration.

    CrookInAHammock

    I've been having an drawn out creative block recently. Between work and everything else that happens in life I haven't had much time to create much personal work. I've been consciously thinking about it everyday for about the past month, yet I couldn't bring myself to do anything. Then I saw the Burnie Vlog #1 - RT video and I was suddenly smacked in the face with an idea that got me excited.

    I am a fulltime Visual Designer for a boutique marketing agency. I have a background in illustration, graphic design and animation. After watching Burnie's vlog and explaining that the Year of the Rooster starts tomorrow, I am committing myself to 365 days of Rooster Teeth inspired illustration.

    Isn't there a saying along the lines of: 

     
    "writing down your goals your more likely to achieving them"

    X Fingers crossed! X
    -Cory

    P.S.

    I recently moved to the Saint Louis, Missouri area. I'd really like to get involved in the RT Community here. If someone could point me in the right direction that'd be awesome.

  • Popular movie "your name" Tops "Spirited Away" as Highest Grossing Anime Film Worldwide

    4 months ago

    micaburton

    Move over, Hayao Miyazaki, there's a new worldwide anime blockbuster in town. Shinkai's film your name has been gaining international popularity at an alarming rate, earning millions of dollars from Japan to South Korea to China and even Thailand. The film has earned a total of $281 million worldwide while Spirited Away in all it's popularity has only grossed $275 million. Even with these impressive numbers, Miyazaki is still clinging to his crown of "Highest Grossing Anime Film In Japan", however. In Japan, your name earned 23.23 billion yen (about $204 million), whereas Spirited Away's 30.8 billion yen (about $270 million). 


    For those of you unfamiliar with the plot of the manga turned film, My Anime List provided a brief spoiler free summary: 


    "Mitsuha Miyamizu, a high school girl, yearns to live the life of a boy in the bustling city of Tokyo—a dream that stands in stark contrast to her present life in the countryside. Meanwhile in the city, Taki Tachibana lives a busy life as a high school student while juggling his part-time job and hopes for a future in architecture.

    One day, Mitsuha awakens in a room that is not her own and suddenly finds herself living the dream life in Tokyo—but in Taki's body! Elsewhere, Taki finds himself living Mitsuha's life in the humble countryside. In pursuit of an answer to this strange phenomenon, they begin to search for one another.

    Kimi no Na wa. revolves around Mitsuha and Taki's actions, which begin to have a dramatic impact on each other's lives, weaving them into a fabric held together by fate and circumstance."

    When the film premiered in South Korea, it sold $8.1 million in its first five days and remained #1 in the box office for over two weeks. Along with South Korea, Shinkai's film topped the box office charts on opening day in Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Thailand. your name is breaking records in China left and right: top grossing 2D animated film, most advance tickets sold, fastest film to reach 100 million yuan, and more.


    When can you view the popular movie in your home country, you ask? Well, the film is slated to open in 92 countries and territories-- including the United States-- thanks to Funimation sometime within the first quarter of 2017.

  • College Applications

    4 months ago

    Evv KevinEverett

    Hey RTers! 


      So Today i have finished my first college application with a school I did not expect to complete first. If any one is curious I can say where I applied to next week when I finish my applications. But unfortunatley my list has been shortened already do to me not really wanting to pay $75 per application fee and not even sure if I want to go to every school on my list. My #1 right now is still Emerson College in Boston, MA, so I really do hope I can finish my 10 page research paper for Dystopian literature all tomorrow (I know 10 pages isn’t a lot, but I am not fond of the topic so its hard geoff)  Once I finish my paper then I will have to move onto my Common App college essay and finish that. I am just having a hard time trying to talk about myself on the essay because I feel like I force too much into an essay and It isn’t genuine. Other than that I am ready to go and submit all my applications. 


      My list has been reduced from 8 schools to 5... Bye California and NewYork, but Hello Florida and Texas  james (Hint for my journal next week). 


    Just a really fast journal before I hit bed

    If I’m successful tomorrow then a lot of my stress will be lifted

    It has to be if I am FU.


    Obligatory FU Journal


    I came here over 8 years ago for the videos. I stayed for the only type of crazy you can find.


    I was introduced to RvB about a third of the way through Season 2 by a friend who tossed me a disc with half of Season 1 on it (he thought I might like it). The next day told him I loved it and asked if there was more. He burnt what was out there and informed me that I would have to keep up with RvB on my own. There was one problem:


    I didn't have Teh Intertubes.


    So, for the next 3+ seasons I had to seek out RvB on other peeps computers to get my fix.


    "But  Buck, why didn't you have Teh Interbutts?"


    Because I had the goal of paying off my house as Priority #1 and shunned luxuries (paid off in '08 - the day that I signed up here).


    I have made a lot of friends here since then, and have met many of them. I've seen some go from high school through college and then onto a career. I've seen some go off to the military, some get married, some suffer tragic loss, and some find great success (pretty much on a daily basis).


    You see, this place has become more than just a place to watch vids; it has become a very dynamic part of my life, one that I am passionate about. 


    Anyway, Thank You! for stopping by.

    Oh yeah, please leave a comment about a thing or two about you and RT if you have a moment.

  • Wishlist, sort of.

    beastdude Rock god in training

    So I don't use the 'new' wishlist feature since the redo of the web site. But I have kept and made a note of everything in the store that I'd like. Things like lack of money, physical space at home, and lack of money have stopped me buying stuff these days.

    That being said, I thought it'd be funny if I made a journal of my current noted wishlist here. Not everything noted is currently available, or will be available again, but I've kept the note just incase. Also some prices may be wrong. The prices on some are noted in £ instead of $ as I looked them up on the UK store, but I stopped doing that when making the notes for the new stuff. Prepare your wallets :P

  • My Top 10 Trailers of 2016

    6 months ago

    IAmVeryMoist Rebel Scum

    This might be an unfair post to make as of now considering 2016 is not yet over. But with the trailers I've compiled thus far, it is already a tough list to make. These trailers were all released in 2016 regardless of if they're for films coming out in 2017. The list is my personal favorite trailers. It's all subjective but I did use I slight guideline when picking these out and sorting them. It came down to the music, shot compilation, how well it presents the story of the film, as well as excitement level. The last criteria is a little opinionated because one persons excitement for a film may not be the same for someone else's. 


    Regardless, here is my Top 10 Trailers of 2016. 


    10: BLAIR WITCH (The Woods)


    Initially titled as THE WOODS, Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett's official sequel to the influential found footage horror film The Blair Witch Project, sought out to right the wrongs of it's initial sequel Book of Shadows (which is shit). Despite your thoughts on this film (which I enjoyed) the trailer itself even with the name of The Woods still attached is deeply unnerving. The incorporation of the song Every Breathe You Take was used excellently to depict the nature of the film as these kids venture into the Blackhills Forest and indeed are being "watched" by whatever lives in the woods. A short and simple trailer that provides some creepy and disturbing imagery whilst keeping the majority of the film hidden to everyone. 



    9: Green Room

    Another minimalist trailer that benefits greatly from not showing much of anything. While the general plot and conflict of the film is clearly laid out, the big surprises and fun of the film is unseen. This makes the viewing of the film that much more intense and memorable. You get just enough from this trailer to peak your interest and get you to want to watch the movie, which is the MAIN goal of any good trailer. Patrick Stewarts ominous voice over provides a sense of tread and terror for whats to come for these kids trapped in a green room.


    8:  The Invitation


    Now personally, this trailer may show more than what I would want someone to see. But as far as trailers go it is certainly one that grabs ahold of you and makes you ask questions. If you could just take my word for it, I'd say just go watch this movie immediately on Netflix. Go in as blind as possible. If you want to watch the trailer anyway despite my advice then it's here for you. From the opening music to the last shots as we hear gasps of terror before the trailer ends, the descent into paranoia and madness is clearly illustrated here. It's a well calculated and superbly cut together trailer. 



    7: American Honey

    The music in this trailer (which is also in the film) is the through line that holds everything together. Shot in 4:3 aspect ratio, giving it an odd flair, the trailer for American Honey shows the rebellious and free spirited nature of the film. While I have my own personal gripe with how the movie is 20 minutes or so too long (it's around 2hr 45min), the trailer shows all the best aspects of the movie and clearly represents what the flick is all about. It's raw, beautiful, and tragic.


    6: 10 Cloverfield Lane

    I am an absolute sucker for great music in trailers, if that isn't already apparent from this list. And 10 Cloverfield Lane is no exception. This movie came out of nowhere and shocked everyone who was a fan of Cloverfield and JJ Abrams in general. The aura of mystery beyond what we're seeing in the trailer was thrilling and even after it ends, we still have NO FUCKING CLUE what is going on. But I'd be hard pressed to believe that someone wouldn't wanna watch this after seeing this trailer.


    5: Suicide Squad 


    This is the 2nd trailer featuring Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen. While I abhor the movie as a whole, this trailer and quite frankly all of the trailers, remind me how excited I was for this movie. I was rooting for DC on this one and they once again dropped the ball... hard. The trailer is well cut together and matches to the song beautifully. It looks fun, poppy, colorful, and action packed. Everything that the movie wasn't. 


    4: ROGUE ONE: A Star Wars Story

    Oddly enough this isn't higher on my list considering I am a HUGE Star Wars fan. I chose the first teaser trailer because for me, I didn't need all the extra fluff that we see in the official trailer, trailer 2, or even the international trailer. While those other trailers did indeed visually confirm the presence of Darth Vader, I didn't need that. All I needed was to see visually the plot at hand, our new heroes, and motherfucking AT-AT's (oh I'm sorry... AT-ACT's, they're different from EMPIRE) storming the beaches of Scarif and mowing down people. That accompanied with the fantastic music and the Death Star sirens blaring hauntingly... everything about this teaser teased me and I LOVED it.



    3: SWISS ARMY MAN

    What is quite possibly my favorite film of 2016, the trailer for Swiss Army Man perfectly captures the sheer absurd nature of the film. A corpse that jet skis across the ocean propelled by it's farts. That alone made me want to see this movie. And then I saw this trailer and fell in love. The beautiful imagery, the performances that are showcased in this short trailer, as well as the delightful Montage song from the soundtrack by Andy Hull and stars Paul Dano and Daniel Radcliffe further solidified this as a must see for me and made this trailer one of my favorites of the year.


    2: LOGAN

    This came out of complete left field for me seeing as I wasn't really aware this was a thing. And as a not so big X-Men fan, the fact that this trailer is #2 on my list speaks volumes to how great this trailer is. The pairing of Johnny Cash's Hurt could not have been placed better in any other trailer than this one. It matches beautifully with the tragic state of Logan in this film and I look forward to seeing this R rated Wolverine film as Jackman's final bow as the clawed X-Men. The right amount of intrigue and mystery, coupled with a co-starring performance by Patrick Stewart, Logan has the makings of being the finest version of Wolverine we'll ever see. 



    #1LA LA LAND

    I am an absolute sucker for musicals. As someone who has been in many musicals myself and seen a shit ton of them, seeing something like La La Land appear on movie screens in this day and age is an absolute dream. The trailer taps into something lost in modern cinema... magic. The trailer is wonderfully delightful and colorful. It's brimming with wonder and joy. Written and Directed by Damien Chazelle who recently brought us the incomparable Whiplash, brings La La Land to theaters next month. Filled with original music and Oscar worthy performances from Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, La La Land looks like the movie that you get all dressed up for with a beautiful date and make it a spellbinding evening at your local cinema. 



    So there it is folks, my Top 10 Trailers of 2016. Now I wanna know what some of your favorite trailers are from 2016. Comment below your favorites and let me know what you think of my list!
