      What's up guys?!?!

      I know I know, we haven't had an update in a while. 

      Well, today is your lucky day! Update day is here!!

      First off, we're still planning to go to Ready Player One (aka Arcade Bar) but we're going to push it till after RTX, otherwise it might be kinda late notice for people. So either the end of August or beginning of September, you guys have any preference??


      But on an earlier note, we wanted to try something a little different and try an online movie night together! I'm thinking either July 20th or 28th, which works for you guys? We also need to know which movie you'd like to watch together so please complete this survey to answer! We kinda need your feedback for this!

      And lastly, I know I mentioned it briefly to some of you, but on a more personal note, I'm actually going to be participating in a panel during RTX as part of the RT World group! No idea on date or time yet, but there is some participation that I'd appreciate from you guys. We're looking for some community participation in the form of a short little video! This will be extremely helpful if anyone was interested! This is completely voluntary, but if you with to submit something, please follow these guidelines:


      Prerequisites: All videos should be HORIZONTAL and a minimum of 720p, 30 fps. Make sure that there is no loud background noises and lighting is adequate. We're not asking for anything professional here. Any videos that do not meet these standards, we cannot guarantee we will use. Most smartphones can do these things.

      In the video please include the following:  

      1. Your name and what community you’re part of.  

      2. One word to describe what Rooster Teeth means to you.  

      3. A clip of you saying the word “community.” 

      4. Why did you join a community?  

      5. What do you love about your community? 

      6. Favorite community moment.  

      7. What do you get from your community?


      Please try to contain these to one video and keep it relatively short as the total video will be only 2-3 minutes.

      Please upload any submissions in the Google drive link HERE!


      I think that's everything for now, hope you guys have been enjoying your summer!


      And remember, we want to hear your opinions on these ideas! So please let us know your thoughts by email at: roosterteethmichigan(dot)gmail(.com).

    • MEETUP TIME!

      2 months ago

      RT Michigan

      Hey everyone! We're back with some meetup news!


      On May 19th, we're planning to get together in East Lansing to get some food, chill and possibly catch some Pokemon!


      Around 12-12:30 we're gonna meet in Parking Lot 15 on the MSU campus, then head over to the Brody dining hall on campus for some lunch. As May 19th is also Pokemon Go Community Day, from 2-5 pm Charmander will have extra spawns! The plan right now is to go somewhere on campus to take part in that action and afterwards head over to the Dublin Square Restaurant to get dinner.


      Not interested in Pokemon? That's okay! Feel free to bring other games to play (public appropriate, please) or just chill and watch the rest of us complain about virtual monsters. If you're not interested in coming for the day and want to join us for dinner, you're also welcome to do that!


      Please let us know you are interested by filling out this Google Doc!


      Remember to follow us here and our other social media pages for updates!

    • New Year, Who Dis?

      6 months ago

      RT Michigan

      You guessed it, it's finally 2018. We survived another year of new viruses, political scandals, and ourselves. Now what?


      Well we've been planning a few things on our end, so hopefully you guys will be interested! 

      First up, we were thinking of a casual meet up at an Applebees just to show this Michigan weather that we don't completely fear it. This will happen some time in February, to make sure you guys have enough time to figure out your schedules. So first question, when? I was thinking the 23rd, or 24th of February. Any preferences? I was also thinking the Applebees out in Utica, since there's lots of other places we could invade afterwards if we felt the need! Because that seems to be our trend!


      Second, what do you guys think about invadin' an arcade bar? They finally opened Ready Player One in Detroit and have heard nothing but good things about it! This wouldn't be till there's a bit less snow on the ground and the air doesn't hurt your face. So March-April time frame was the plan. But who doesn't wanna play old style arcade games and claim they're the best???  tower tower tower

    • It May Be Cold, But...

      7 months ago

      RT Michigan

      Hey folks! 


      Yeah it's winter in Michigan, meaning that it is COLD outside. Not much we can do about that, but we just may be able to make it a little more bearable. Nothing is essentially set in stone (more like ice right now) yet, but here are some of the ideas we have.


      First up is getting together for New Year's Eve! The plan is for some of us to hang out playing board games and watching Lazer Team 2. It will take place around the Waterford area and @SeanTFlynn will have more details to come regarding exact location and time. For now, check out this sign up sheet. 


      The thought has also come up that we could meet up and a restaurant near the end of January. You know how we invade a place that serves food and than linger more than we probably should only to move on to something else afterwards until after darkness has fallen and most things are closing for the night. We want to go somewhere new this time and suggestions would help us find a place that fits what we are looking for.


      Also plan on our next official meet up taking place in the spring, most likely February, March or maybe even early May. We don't know yet what we'll be doing, but we do have some ideas. Again, suggestions are always appreciated.


      If you do have an idea for our next meet up or can think of a restaurant that would fit RT Michigan, let us know by email at: roosterteethmichigan(dot)gmail(.com). You can also reach us, the less effective ways, here on the site, or our Twitter and Facebook. Also check out our Discord, where the topics vary and the discussion almost never stops.


      Talk to you more soon,

    • Streaming #forthekids

      8 months ago

      RT Michigan

      Hello everyone!


      Cold wind, frost in the morning, and leaves everywhere. Love it or hate it, it's definitely fall in Michigan. And along with all of those things, we also have Extra-life, some cons, our fall meet up, and... I guess pumpkin everything? Whatever, let's stick with the relevant stuff for now  wink


      Starting with Extra-life! Can you believe it, Rooster Teeth is trusting us with our own hour of their community stream! RT Michigan will be featured on RT's stream that takes place November 4th and 5th, specifically Saturday night at midnight to 1am EST. Yeah, I know, that's technically Sunday at that point, just go with it. If you haven't yet, you should join our Extra-life team here! It's a part of Rooster Teeth's Super Team, meaning that whatever we raise goes towards their total of $1million!


      Our portion of the stream will be hosted/lead by our own @lumberjacklass and will feature others of the group as well. She actually plans to stream from 8pm to 2am/whenever they fall asleep on her own channel twitch.tv/ladylikegaming, so check it out and support your local children's hospitals.


      I'm hoping to tune in for the stream, as I'll be attending Youmacon in Detroit that weekend. I know fellow admin @SamWaldo, as long as a few others, will also be there. If you plan on attending, let us know! Maybe we'll have enough people around to do a mini-meet up and take a photo or something. Either way, it would be great to meet all of you!


      Speaking of meet ups, we have one coming up in a few weeks. On November 18th at 3pm we are meeting at Slurping Turtle in Ann Arbor. It's a Japanese ramen restaurant. Check out this sign up sheet with the address if you plan on being there. It will help us out having a general idea on how many will be attending. After the restaurant, we will most likely be doing something else as well. Ideas have ranged from a movie, checking out an arcade, or even getting some bubble tea. We can figure that out once we are all together.


      As always, if you want to host a meet up or a game night, or just have an idea for one, feel free to email us at roosterteethmichigan(at)gmail(dot)com. It's the most reliable way to be assured to reach all of us admins. You can also follow the group on Twitter and Facebook. And join our Discord servers where we talk about all kinds of things!


      Stay warm out there folks!

    • Extra Life, Meet Up, and More!

      9 months ago

      RT Michigan

      Hey fellow Mitten dwellers!


      So, yeah, it's been a while since our last news post. But, this one is full of info on things you're going to want to know about!


      First off, it's almost that time of year again, Extra Life. One of RT's favorite charities to support, as well as our own. Who wouldn't love playing games to raise money for children's hospitals. Once again, Rooster Teeth has a Super Team and we are one of the teams on it! You can join the team and/or donate here! Just like last year Rooster Team is hosting a community stream one week and having their own the next. The dates for those are November 4th and 11th. 


      Speaking of the community stream, we have submitted an application to be a part of it this year. We won't know any specifics, or if we even made the cut, until we hear back from RT. Even if they don't have an open slot, I'm sure the people planning on running our stream will still want to do one. It is #4theKids after all.  smile Once we know more details, you'll know them too. 


      Most of the discussion and planning for the Extra Life streams is taking place in our Discord. Haven't checked it out yet? You can find it at >https:/discord.gg/De99m9f. The folks there have been quite busy lately, what with planning a stream or two and also some possible meet ups on top of asking everyone's opinion and preference on hot dogs.


      That's right, a meet up was suggested and planned by our lovely Gents and Ladies in the RT Michigan Discord! And, of course, we admins are all for it. The plan is to meet on November 18th at 3pm in Ann Arbor. Specifically at a Japanese ramen place called Slurping Turtle located at

      608 E Liberty St Ann Arbor, MI 48104

      Plans for what to do afterwards are still up in the air. So far some suggestions are just hanging out somewhere nearby, checking out one of the local arcades, catching a movie, or even getting some bubble tea. We'll have a sign up and suggestion sheet as things get a little closer.


      On another note, there are a couple of conventions here in Michigan in the coming weeks. A couple of us will be at Grand Rapids Comic-Con October 20-22, and even more of us will be attending Youmacon in Detroit November 2-5. If you are going to these or any other Con coming up, and want to meet up or hang out, let each other know in the comments. Even if it's just lunch or a group photo op, it's always a great time to meet your fellow RT Michiganders and put names to faces.


      Also, there has been some interest in see Star Wars: The Last Jedi as a group this December. If you're interested in something like that, let us know. @JoeFace got some of us together for The Force Awakens and he's hoping we could do it again!


      As always, if you want to host a meet up or a game night, or just have an idea for one, feel free to email us at roosterteethmichigan(at)gmail(dot)com. It's the most reliable way to be assured to reach all of us admins. You can also follow the group on Twitter and Facebook.


      Oh and feel free to jealously mock hate @SamWaldo who gets to fly across the pond for RTX London. Some people have all the luck  wink


      Until next time,

      Thank you to everyone that came out to our Craig's Cruisers Meet Up! <3 We appreciate seeing all of your souls! I guess your faces were good too.


      So in light of things, you might be asking when we're all going to get together again for fun things! Well, we're working on that still. I know that a couple of things have been discussed and explored already. 

      Our own @Jean110 even offered up his home for a weekend of table top games and shenanigans! He lives quite far from most of us so we thought it'd be worth it to make it a weekend of fun! Assuming that Jean could handle our asses! 

      We also had interest in doing an RT Michigan camping trip! It's a bit late in the year to plan something of that scale, but we definitely want to do something next year! So if ya'll have any good camping sites to offer as suggestions, we'd love to hear them! CLICK HERE TO TELL US THINGS! 


      Or just shoot us an email at roosterteethmichigan(at)gmail(dot)com so we can get the word out for you and provide a sign up sheet if you'd like!

We'll be having some fun at Craig's Cruisers in Grand Rapids! Its a place that has go-karts, laser tag and other fun activities so everyone can find something to enjoy! After our fun there we'll decide on a place to go for dinner or if there is any other havoc we want to cause. 


      If you could confirm whether you are interested in going or that you are going on this google doc that would be a big help!


      Hope to see you guys there!


      Friendly reminder that ANYONE can host a game night for any game or console they wish to use!
