    More rt lifes with the animation crew! Those guys are hilarious and we don't see enough of them, especially Josh and Kyle. Also Jordan Battle. Who gets a name like Battle and then doesn't put him in front of a camera.

    Any RT Lifes (RT Lives?) with the animation team make my day. I feel like these are disproportionately about Live Action and Marketing. Though that could just be because the animators are busy and nothing ever happens.

      also could be that RT Life episodes featuring their spaces, mostly computer screens will have to be edited more to hide what they're working on, computers not working...sweet there wont be anything on screen ;)

    Everytime i see the amount of people that work at roosterteeth i always think how much they get paid, and how much does roosterteeth have to make to pay all of them, and still make money as a company... It doesnt feel like roosterteeth would be making all that much money, but they must to afford all the equipment and people they have working for them.

      Well the RT site has 1.5 million members. their youtube channels have millions of subscribers. they have added ads to their podcasts.  Their mech seems to sell well considering how often they add stuff.  But another part of it is how much money FullScreen has invested.  I do not know specifics but the impression that I get is that their sales team as done a good job for them so that they can keep making new content that they are like to make.  I would be interested in finding out more specifics as to more about RT's revenue.

      Josh and I think Kyle are the main machinimators for RvB, which is the bits of the show which are rendered in Halo as opposed to being animated from scratch. For this they need as many consoles as they have characters in the scene (each character is it's own profile in a multiplayer game), and a buttload of TVs to run those consoles on. That's why they were talking about Burnie being mad, because he used to have to do it with like four consoles and a tiny TV. How far RT has grown.

      Welp, I think that sounds pretty convincing, so it's 4 tv's and 16 consoles for four player split screen then? And now that I think about it, Halo 5 won't be able to do that will it?

    Wait, but where's the shoehorned ad by an unpopular brand masquerading as content? 

    • Kr1sp FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      Masquerading? It's always pretty obvious and straightforward when they do sponsored content.

      @Kr1sp

      You may not know, but the recent run of RT Life has been shilling instead of actual BTS and office shenanigans. They kept the name but now it's mostly used to sell stinky deodorant, etc. Thus, masquerading.

      @canhasaname They spoke about this on the podcast, the power went out the same day the Switch came out so everyone was making jokes that the power was still on, they just wanted to play with the Switch. Which leads us to believe it was Sex Swing

    I'd love it if they found out the lights and beer fridge were purposely put on a separate power source, purely because someone wanted them to be the bare necessities.
