  • Twits & Crits Returns For A New Season!

    5 months ago

    ElyseWillems

    Ho Ho, Dear Adventurers!


    Our Funhaus Dungeons & Dragons show Twits & Crits returns for Rooster Teeth FIRST members this fall. And listen up ya bafooks, ‘cause there are some big CHANGES happening! (Change = scary, right? BE BRAVE!)


    Going forward, Twits & Crits will post to RoosterTeeth.com every other week.

    On September 14th we kick things off with a 2-hour special that concludes the events of the story arc you’ve been following for the past three seasons.


    Then, on September 28th, we are premiering Twits & Crits: The League of Extraordinary Jiremen. Or T&C: LXJ, as we’ve been referring to it. God, we are SO fucking cool.


    Needless to say, we at Funhaus are huge fans of The Dark Universe (a.k.a. The “DUCU”), so the prospect of creating our own coalition of the macabre is super exciting. Playing with existing genre and horror tropes is gonna be a good time.


    For those who are already fans of the show, all of your favorite characters ARE returning. So don’t go flipping any tables just yet! Dirik, Myri, Racsan, Shattercock, Decker and Grimo are about to embark upon a new adventure, and there’s something oddly refreshing about that. At least for us. The comedic potential is RIPE! We're already a few episodes into production and having a blast.  


    That being said, if you’re never watched Twits & Crits, now’s the time to start. T&C: LXJ is a nine episode mini-series with a fresh start and conclusion. It doesn’t require a deep background of previous seasons to know what’s going on or who the characters are. You can jump right in and not feel helplessly uninformed.


    TL;DR

    September 14th - thrilling 2-hour conclusion of Twits & Crits Seasons 1-3

    September 28th - premiere of Twits & Crits: The League of Extraordinary Jiremen.


    Shall we begin?

  • NEW!!! Post-CRX Fan Service episode

    5 months ago

    coleg

    Hey all,


    We will be having a new episode of Fan Service airing this Saturday (going live around 5 am cst), recapping the "Fan Service Family Trip" out to lovely Santa Clara for the first ever Crunchyroll Expo!


    For Anime Club we will be discussing My Hero Academia and some Little Witch Academia (pretty much the "Academia Power Hour", am I right???).


    It's been a while since we've had a new episode out and we've missed talking with y'all, so be sure to send in those community service questions.


    See y'all this weekend!!!

  • Postmortem: Brisket Edition

    5 months ago

    Chelsea RT Community Manager

    First, Hurricane Harvey Update: I'm in north Austin, pretty outside of the city limits. We got a lot of rain and wind. Luckily, our power never went out and nothing flooded. Well, my car got pretty wet inside, it's a convertible so I think the wind and rain was too much for it to handle and stay dry. 


    Now, onto the meat.


    Thank you to everyone who gave me their input, wisdom, and trips and ticks regarding on what to do with my meat. For my first time smoking anything, let alone something of this nature while fighting Mother Nature herself, it was a fun time and I definitely learned some things for next time. 


    What I did:

    - Rubbed that baby down with a handful of spices the night before and let it soak in.

    - Saturday morning, built my fire with charcoal and wood chips, let it simmer down and then put the meat on the grill wrapped in open foil

    - Had it on the grill from like 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

    - At that point, the internal temperature was still only about 160'F so I stuck it in the oven for a few hours until it was up to 180'F

    - The brisket was dry, but hot damn -- it was still so tasty.


    Things to remember for next time:

    - Don't try and do this in the middle of windy and rainy weather

    - Possibly don't wrap it in foil until much later in the process

    - Probably was fine when it reached 160'F and I didn't need to do it in the oven and just have let it rest

    - Try again!


    So, once again - thank you! It was super tasty. I'm always open to being told where I might have strayed away from something that would have made this turn out differently. There were so many differing opinions, I tried to combine a few and it may not have worked out in the best way. 


    Here are some pics of the product...

    FOLKS!


    HI!


    So with the crazy month I've had shooting Blood Fest, starting production on Always Open Season 3, and traveling for a bunch of conventions, I was not able to film much for August's Barbara Vlogs. Was planning to go on a cool outdoor adventure this weekend, but Hurricane Harvey obviously made that impossible.


    So! Plan B! Let's do a fun Q+A! Ask me anything in the comments below, and I'm going to be answering them in this month's vlog.

  • On The Spot: Game of Thrones PSA

    5 months ago

    Jon The Risemonger

    PSA for this week’s On The Spot: we talk about Game of Thrones A LOT but tried to stay away from season 7 spoilers. In fact we call out a season 6 spoiler before a game & give a timestamp for when you can skip to in order to skip over it. That all being said the episode is particularly good & involves Ryan Haywood dancing like a white boy at the disco at one point. So, please enjoy!

  • Coming Soon This Weekend - Brisket Attempt #1

    6 months ago

    Chelsea RT Community Manager

    I have a friend. She's never had brisket. 


    This is a Texan atrocity. 


    So I'm going to try and smoke/cook/grill/[insert correct term here] a brisket.


    With my research, I have discovered the following tips:


    - marinate/rub for 12 hours. 

    - put brisket on the grill - COLD

    - use something called the "snake method" to ensure long time burning temps

    - cook somewhere in the vicinity of 5-7 hours until temperature is like 195'F


    I'm using a charcoal grill. Got any tips for a newbie playing with her meat?

  • On The Spot Submission Thread #108

    Jon The Risemonger

    Game of Thrones finale is happening after this next week's OTS so we are making the whole show Game of Thrones themed, starting with prompts. So, with that in mind, give me some ideas to use in our games with some Ice & Fire in them:


    ABCs OF STORYTELLING

    Since it's Game of Thrones week let's make prompts for this week all about:

    • You're all time favorite moments from Game of Thrones, any season.
    • Preferably scenes where two people were the main points of interaction

    QUICK THINKING

    • Come up with a category for the guests to list off possible answers for (i.e. Things not to say after someone says "I love you" for the first time.)
    • Category with a lot of possibilities for answers are the best.
    • Make sure it's about something that would live in the Game of Thrones world

    NEW GAME: JUST A QUICKIE

    We tested it in the post-show for FIRST members this last week and want to try it out now in the big leagues. All we need is some prompts for a scene. Since we're doing Game of Thrones this week give me ideas for:

    • Your favorite scene that never happened between two characters (fanfic essentially)

    My the old gods and the new be ever in your favor. xoxo The Risemonger

  • Meet Dan, Head of Community Product!

    6 months ago

    Barbara

    Hey guys! Long time no speak!


    The Rooster Teeth website has been around for over 13 years. In those years, we've seen different iterations of the site, as well as changes in activity (from both our members and RT staff) and function. Some for the better, some for the worse.


    With the growth of other platforms such as Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Reddit, etc, we recognize that our community is splintered in different directions. Even I am guilty of not being as active on this site as I used to be or want to be.


    This is our home. This is where you should be able to interact with the Rooster Teeth community and staff, and we have been working at figuring out how to get back to that.

    This is why I'd like to introduce you to the newest member of the Rooster Teeth family, Dan McComas! (@kickme444


    Dan has an incredible history, working on the community site software / product at Reddit & Reddit Gifts, Imzy, and others. He will be working to define and adapt the vision of the community website, and develop it into something we're all proud of. @Chelsea and I will also be working closely with him and you guys to make sure we keep you in the loop, and hear your wants and concerns.


    We are very excited to have him on board. He'll be checking the comments of this post, so give him a proper RT community welcome! barbara


  • On The Spot Submission Thread #107

    Jon The Risemonger

    Once again we gather at the alter of On The Spot and ask for sacrifices of goofs and gags to be used in this week's episode. Who shall offer up their gift to gods of fart jokes and prat falls this week?


    CUNNING LINGUISTICS

    • Go to urbandictionary.com and find a word or phrase for guests to guess a definition for.
    • Pro tip: try and find words/phrases that are not just weird sex position descriptions.

    ASS SWIPE

    • We need suggestions for personality traits of the worst date ever.
    • Submit 1 trait or a even a set of 2 that play off of each other.
    • Feel free to get weird with this one, you've seen how the game goes ;)
    • Also, we need people to write these profiles for so let me know in the comments if you want some love-life help.

    COME AGAIN? You give me a prompt for a scene and I make them act it out. This week I'm looking for prompts involving:

    • Things you hate to admit that you have to do for your job.
    • Memorable things from Summer vacation trips.
    • Things kindergarteners argue about with each other.

    May the goofs be with you. xoxo The Risemonger

  • Long-Awaited Android App Update

    6 months ago

    mikequinn VP Engineering

    Today is a good day for Android users, because we just released a long-awaited update for the Rooster Teeth app on Google Play! Beyond the usual performance improvements and bug fixes, this update finally adds support for additional channels in the Rooster Teeth family, including Cow Chop and Game Attack.


    If you already have the app, you just need to install the latest update. If you don’t have it yet, now’s the perfect time to change that. You can get it here.


    As always, leave a comment if you have any suggestions for ways we can continue to improve the app.


    Update: The Android release 1.2.3 has a bug where watching a live video crashes the app.  We're fixing now, so thanks for your patience!  We should have a fix in the next 24 hours. (http://roosterteeth.com/post/51321138). 


    Update 2: We have a patch for the following: 

    * Layout issues on search

    * Layout issues on seasons

    * Crashes on search

    * Still need to validate Live episode crashes


    Update 3: 

    * We're pushing a build up that updates the crashes and layout problems in Update 2.  The "only showing 20 episodes" we'll not have a chance to fix in this release. 


    Update 4:

    * Started a rollout to 50% of users.  Will check for crashes, then continue the rollout.  Thanks again for your patience!

  • New FIRST Merch!

    6 months ago

    Jon The Risemonger

    When I’m not spending my time being the best driver ever in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, I spend my days surrounded by a team of pretty awesome designers. I tweeted out recently about a big brainstorming session we were having about merch. While we were brainstorming designs, we realized that it’s been too long since we released any new FIRST-exclusive merchandise. Good news, though. We’re the ones who can change that. So we did.


    Starting today, FIRST members have access to not one, but TWO new FIRST-exclusive shirts in the RT Store. Check ‘em out!


    kOKxEPV.jpg


    There is a right way and a wrong way to let people know that you’re number one. Here is the right way. Enjoy.


    EkOmmgR.jpg


    So Tony, our Lead Product Designer, for some reason always thought grapes were just green and got confused as to why all our grape stuff was purple. Putting our concerns over Tony’s naiveté aside, we wanted to pay tribute to the green underdog of the grape world, so we let him design this FIRST-exclusive variant of the infamous People Like Grapes shirt.


    Moving forward, we are committed to releasing FIRST-exclusive merch on a more regular basis. And by “merch” I mean more than just shirts – we’re looking into apparel and products. If there are any designs or items you’d like to see, leave a comment and let us know!


    P.S. You should follow the RT Store on Twitter. Or not. Your call. xoxo

  • Officially Announcing Blood Fest!

    6 months ago

    matt

    At RTX Austin last month, I announced that Rooster Teeth will be making a horror-comedy movie called Blood Fest. That was all I could say about it at that time, but I’m back to give you more details. Get ready, because cameras are ready to roll.


    At Rooster Teeth, we’ve always prided ourselves on taking chances to support uniquely talented artists, and we’re excited to continue that tradition as we develop more films for our community and new audiences. Blood Fest is written and directed by a great guy named Owen Egerton. His screenplays have been on the industry-famous Black List two times, and he wrote and directed the films Follow and The Axe Murders of Villisca. We’re really excited to be working with him.


    You already know that Blood Fest is a horror comedy, but we can finally elaborate on that. Here’s the official description:

    Fans flock to a festival celebrating the most iconic horror movies, only to discover that the charismatic showman behind the event has a diabolical agenda. As attendees start dying off, three teenagers with more horror-film wits than real-world knowledge must band together and battle through every madman, monstrosity, and terrifying scenario if they have any hope of surviving.

    Spooooo0oo0ooky.


    Blood Fest stars Jacob Batalon (Spider-Man: Homecoming), Robbie Kay (Heroes: Reborn), some random person named Barbara Dunkelman (RWBY), a scoundrel named Nick Rutherford (Crunch Time), and Tate Donovan (The Man in the High Castle). You’ll also see some familiar Rooster Teeth faces when you least expect them.


    It’ll be released on Rooster Teeth FIRST at some point in the future. We can’t wait to share it with you.

    Jon The Risemonger

    This week we will be streaming the "Drag" episode but because of schedules we still need to record our episode we were going to record this week. So...that means I need PROMPTS!


    SYNC ABOUT IT

    • Finish the sentence: How to...?
    • Feel free to submit more than one idea.

    GIVING HEADLINES

    • Find an odd story from the recent news with an equally odd headline that we can remove a word or two from for the the guests to fill in the blank.
    • Look for headlines where a blank space would leave the story open to a lot of different interpretations. Ambiguity is key.

    HOLD MY CONTEMPT

    • I need a simple feud people would fight over in a courtroom.
    • Specifically disputes between 2 individuals where one has wronged the other in some way.

    As always, couldn't do the show without you guys. Thanks. xoxo The Risemonger

    This week's episode of On The Spot will be delayed. Due to today's announcement from President Trump regarding the transgender community, we feel this isn't the right time to air it. While the show celebrates the incredible visual and humorous talent of drag performers, we wanted to be sensitive to today's news.  We believe you'll enjoy the episode when it airs next week, but today is not the day for it. Thank you for understanding.
