      GOODBYE EVERYBODY!

      4 years ago

      The last two weeks have been really great. I have went on vacation, hung out with lots of friends. kicking ass in Portal 2 and Mortal Kombat , saw some really great movies, got myself the new xbox and the iPod touch 4th generation, been excepted into my new school, and rejoiced over the news over Osama. That bastard had it coming after 2001. So as you may see, I've been pretty happy for the last few weeks.

      Well, it's about to get even better. I am going on a delegation to Israel for the next two weeks. I will be staying with an israeli family, interact with their school and be there with ten of my friends from here in America. It is going to be a blast. I have never been to Israel, and am really looking forward to the experience. So I bif farewell to everyone at Rooster Teeth as I will be staying at the other side of the world, come Wednesday.

      So goodbye Rooster Teeth, the RT community, and America. I'll see you again on the 15th. =)

      MORTAL KOMBAT

      4 years ago

      The last two weeks have been pretty great for a Mortal Kombat fan such as myself.

      First, the new web-series, Mortal Kombat: Legacy, premiered on machinima. I was surprised at the level of effort that was put into this. Only two episodes, and this already is more entertaining than the crappy movies that came out in the 90's. No offense Christopher Lambert, you Raiden was good, but Michael Jai White's Jax was much cooler. I'm glad how faithful it is, seeing how characters are have similar personalities to their game counterpart, and their is a decent amount of blood and gore. It is shot well, and it is acted and edited almost perfectly. If you are interested, it's on the machinima website, and their youtube channel.

      But what's better than a good Mortal Kombat live action adaption? ANOTHER KICK ASS MORTAL KOMBAT GAME!! It's been pretty long since a Mortal Kombat game has been as good as the first three. Why? Because this game changes the events of the first three. How convenient. I like the new plot twists, as well as the nostalgic atmosphere the game provides for the die hard fans of the series. The gameplay is better than ever, making it much easier to pull of the fatalities and kombos. The new mini-games are a nice touch, and the challenge tower is addicting, and gets extremely difficult as you progress. The multiplayer is a letdown though. You need a $10 online pass for this game, which I think is a total ripoff. And connecting to someone on a ranked match isn't any better. But the story mode and huge amount of extras makes up for it. It's a pretty great game.

      For the last two weeks, there hasn't been a better time to shout: GET OVER HERE!!! Very pleased with the outcome for the both.

      P.S. If you are an achievement hunter like myself, don't expect any easy achievements in this game. Any

      Slow Dance

      4 years ago

      This is a poem written by a teenager with cancer. She wants to see how many people get her poem. It is quite the poem. Please pass it on. This poem was writeen by a terminally ill young girl in a New York Hospital. It was sent by a medical doctor. Make sure to read what is in the closing statement after the poem.

      Slow Dance

      Have you ever watched kids
      On a merry-go-round?
      Or listened to the rain
      Slapping on the Ground?
      Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight?
      Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?
      You better slow down.
      Don’t dace so fast.
      Time is short.
      The music won’t last.

      Do you run through each day
      On the fly?
      When you ask ‘How are you?’
      Do you hear the reply?
      When the day is done
      Do you lie in your bed
      With the next hundred chores
      Running through your head?
      You’d better slow down
      Don’t dance so fast.
      Time is short. The music won’t last.

      Ever told your child,
      We’ll do it tomorrow?
      And in your hast,
      Not see his sorrow?
      Ever lost touch,
      Let a good friendship die
      Cause you never had time
      To call and say, ‘Hi’
      You’d better slow down.
      Don’t dance so fast.
      Time is short.
      The music won’t last…

      When you run so fast to get somewhere
      You miss half the fun of getting there.
      When you worry and hurry through your day,
      It is like an unopened gift…
      Thrown away.
      Life is not a race.
      Do take it slower
      Hear the music
      Before the song is over


      Dear All:
      This young girl has 6 months left to live, and as her dying wish, she wanted to send a letter telling everyone to live their life to the fullest, since she never will. She’ll never make it to prom, graduate from high school, or get married and have a family of her own.

      PLEASE PASS ON AS A LAST REQUEST.

      "Get Over Here!"

      4 years ago

      Just saw the new trailer and pics for the Mortal Kombat web-series titled: Mortal Kombat Legacy.

      Have to say, I'm pretty impressed. Maybe it isn't a movie we need after all. Maybe this will be the first live action video game adaption that may actually respect the source material, please the fans, and help introduce the franchise to new gamers in time for the anticipated new Mortal Kombat reboot game.

      Mark you calendars everybody. On April 12, ass will be kicked....... the right way......... hopefully.

      fingers crossed.

      Holy Crap!

      4 years ago

      Months ago, I made a game type in Halo: Reach called Left 4 Dead. I haven't even though to look at my Bungie profile in a long time, but I just did a few minutes ago. And the first thing I saw was that my game type got over 2,000 downloads, and over 100 likes. This, made my day.

      If you want to check it out, here is the link:

      What's your favorite Halo game?

      4 years ago

      Not too long ago, I was reading a journal from a friend of mine on Rooster Teeth. It surrounded how Bungie's produced Halo games will always be superior to those who aren't, currently and in the future. I totally agree. The games are so awesome, nostalgic, action-packed, and phenomenally epic on a LARGE SCALE! Especially....... um.......I I'm not sure. That's why I have made this poll. It is here so that I can see what a majority of people would call the best Halo game.

      On that very post, I commented how I couldn't pick a favorite because it is to difficult to choose the most distinct and outstanding Halo game from Bungie. Here is what I wrote to help you see what I mean:

      "I'll be honest, I still can't decide what my favorite halo game is. It's one of the most touching franchises I have ever been a fan of, even more than Star Wars and Lord of the Rings. I love it so much, but I hate that it makes it so difficult to point fingers and crown a winner. Maybe that serves as pro instead of a con, I'm not sure. But each game is so perfect in it's own ways:

      Halo: CE has one of the most interesting and climactic campaigns I've ever played. The plot-wists are delivered so well, and the characters are so badass, and the set pieces are beautiful. Without this game, the xbox wouldn't be what it is now.

      Halo 2 also has a great campaign, despite the fact a few levels were slightly dull (in my opinion). But the multiplayer was addictive, and who can possibly forget Master Chief's line, "Sir! Finishing This Fight!" Fan-Tastic

      Halo 3 possessed one of the best climaxes in a video game trilogy, and at the very end, I immediately teared. The beautiful music and message Bungie sent the fans was the best way to end the trilogy. Multiplayer wasn't as addictive as it was in #2 (for me at least) but custom games, theatre, and forge became a hobbie for me.

      Halo 3 ODST doesn't deserve all the hate it got. Sure, it was expensive for such a small campaign, but Bungie made up for it. In a simple word: Firefight. Similar to Nazi Zombies from COD, you fight until you die. It never got old, each new round and set, brought more enemies with a higher difficulty. It was my new favorite thing to play in a Halo game, because it would never end Hallelujah!

      Halo: Reach gave us the same as the old. While some would find this as a rehash and an easy way to put out this last Bungie produced Halo game, they would be wrong. IT had all the key elements of the Halo games, and put them on one disc. EPIC is the only word to describe this game.

      It's so hard to pick a favorite one out of the five games. they are all magnificent and incredible contributions to Science-Fiction and are one of the few franchises that are made for fan service. I LOVE HALO! I can't decide on my favorite. They are all my favorites. It's my favorite franchise. It's the only franchise I would go back and play the campaigns again (whether it be in chronological order of the halo time line, or by the date of release, IT DIDN'T MATTER!). They are all equal to me. But as a whole, this franchise, will stand out to me more than any other franchise in gaming right now, and as long as I remain to be a gamer, because nothing screams Sci-Fi, soap opera, action-packed, badass, inspiring, charismatic, and phenomenal video game like Halo."

      So people, in your opinion, WHAT IS THE BEST BUNGIE PRODUCED HALO GAME?

      If you would like to elaborate your decision in the poll, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! =)

      EDIT: EXCUSE MY STUPIDITY FOR PUTTING IN HALO WARS FOR REASON UNKOWN EVEN TO MYSELF. JUST POINT AND LAUGH. IT WAS A MISTAKE, BUT NONETHELESS, STUPID.

      I LOVE RVB!!!!!

      4 years ago

      Hey everybody. I'm all new to Rooster Teeth, and I' really starting to love it. The Shows, the cast, and especially the community, I friggin love this place! The way I discovered this place, is not the way you would expect. I was just browsing videos on youtube, looking up stuff, watching vids for halo: reach (this took place last summer btw) and in the suggestion box, I found something called Red vs. Blue. this caught my eye, and it was the first episode. I clicked on the video, and began to watch. 3 minutes later, you would see me crying in the floor of my room, quavering like an idiot, out of sheer laughter. From then on, I became addicted to Rooster teeth. RVB, RT shorts, Immersion. Achievement Hunter, and the Drunk Tank. I now tune in every week to this site for my daily dose of Rooster Teeth. I recently joined the site as a member, and now I have the ability to write this journal. awesome. I have a lot of friends who have been watching rooster teeth thanks to a friend, or because they love halo, or they have been watching for the last 8 years. So, I'm curious. How did you come across Rooster Teeth? If you select OTHER, comment below and tell me what other thing you did!

      p.s. Rooster Teeth is amazing. So are you. =D

      Halo Remake. Do you approve???

      4 years ago

      There have been numerous rumors circulating the web for months now of a halo hd remake that might come out this november in time for the 10 year anniversary. I also heard it might be done by the studio that made Timeshift. I really like this idea because not only will it make a classic game we all know and love look better and relevant to the times, but can reintroduce the franchise to this new generation of gamers. Sure, they might already be playing reach, but they're missing out on one of the best campaign experiences the xbox has ever possessed. Besides, won't it be awesome to play the orginal game with an update of weapons, armor, vehicles, enemies, and of course, multiplayer!?!?!?!? WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK:
