      I'm fairly certain that one or two people at Epic are responsible for turning Fortnite into a Battle Royale game. Whoever they are, they should get a very large raise.

    • Vlog Automation

      6 months ago

      burnie

      A number of people have asked me about the automation in my house. I think a lot of people beliece I live in some kind of unobtainable future house but 95% of what you saw was installed by me and purchased off Amazon. In fact, the most expensive individual piece of tech (besides my car) is the Roomba, which isn’t an outlandish piece of tech.


      The whole purpose of that section of the Vlog was to show that really futuristic seeming tech is available right now. And some things that are really useful automated tools like programmable coffee makers and garage door openers have been around for decades.


      I’ll try to go shot by shot here and break it down.


      In bed

      Amazon Echo $39-115

      Spotify account $10/month


      Kitchen

      Lutron Caseta light switch $55

      Cuisinart Coffee Maker w/ timer— $70

      Roomba 960 — $650


      Living Room

      9 Phillips Hue Bulbs — $540*

      Logitech Harmony Remote Hub — $300


      Library

      Phillips Hue Lamp bulb — $25

      Phillips Hue bulb (Joe The Cat Painting) — $40


      Bookshelf

      Caseta light switch — $55

      Nest Thermostat — $230


      Bathroom 

      My Smart Blind motors — $99 each

      Echo Dot — $39


      Garage

      2015 Tesla P85D — a lot

      Using the Summon feature

      Controlled via third party app which communicates with Alexa

      Hamilton Garage Door Opener — est $250 (came with the house)


      *I really dislike Hue bulbs and wish I had never bought them. That room was the first I did and I quickly switched to the Caseta light switches after that. Could have done that room for 1/10 the cost and it’s a far more reliable solution.



      So besides the car (and the blinds which are cool to see but not really worth the time and money) you could replicate that whole set up for about the cost of a mid-level gaming PC and a weekend of work. It’s not cheap, but also not an impossible leap to have a “house of the future”

    • Introducing RTX Ambassadors

      6 months ago

      burnie

      One of the best parts about working at Rooster Teeth is interacting with the community and finding people that are doing amazing work on the Internet. In fact one of our brightest stars in the community just hit 10 million subscribers on YouTube. I think that kid is going places.


      So, I am proud to announce that we are launching a new experimental program to make some of our talented hard-working members of the community a bigger part of our RTX events. This year we will be introducing RTX Ambassadors, people from the community who will be the faces and hosts of  RTX. We’re launching this in Sydney, so we’re still in the process of figuring out exactly how all this will work, but you can expect to see the ambassadors introducing panels, interviewing people from Rooster Teeth and generally being the online guides of RTX.


      Our first ever RTX ambassadors will be the crew from Boneyard Arcade -- a lovable group of miscreants gamers based out of Sydney. We’re really excited to be working with Dan, Lucky, Chloe and Josh. We have met them at several events over the years and everyone here has fallen in love with them. We think you will too. If you’re not familiar with their work, please check out their channel Boneyard Arcade and follow them on all the appropriate following places.


      nTyDsCi.jpg


      After this trial run at RTX Sydney, we plan on opening up the selection process to the community as a whole. We will have more for information about that in the future. If you're interested in being an upcoming RTX ambassador: stay tuned.


      And be sure to let the Boneyard Crew know what you’d like to see at RTX Sydney if you’re not attending. I’m sure they’d love the input on what to spotlight.

    • The Final Vlog

      6 months ago

      burnie

      As I write this, the last vlog is in processing and preparing to post to the Rooster Teeth site. It was A rare treat for me to work on the last video in the series, knowing that it was the end. An odd side effect of all your ongoing support is that not many of our shows come to a conclusion. So, it was a new and enjoyable experience to plan the end of a series.


      This final vlog is a little different and I think you will see how pretty quickly. I had this idea for something called a “quiet vlog” and this seemed like a great chance to make it. Since the series started with the Monday vlog, I felt it was appropriate to end with the Friday vlog. This time, we follow just one person through their day. I could easily see us doing it a few more times with different people, if people like the format.


      I hope that’s the case. Thanks for supporting me for a year on this project. See you on the next one.

      If you bought a Burnie RT Store gift for someone else for Christmas before Dec 16th and it didn't get there in time, I want to try to help make things right for you.


      If you bought a merch product that has my name on it (which are: the Burnie hat, the Burnie sticker, the Burnie bobblehead or the Be Nice Work Hard shirt) as a gift for someone and it did not arrive in time to give to them for the holiday, I will personally call them and wish them a Merry Christmas and apologize for messing up your gift to them. I won't be able to talk very long as I expect to be making a few calls but I feel it's the least I can do. 


      If this applies to you, just use this Google Form I have set up to get me all the relevant information.

      Played a couple of rounds of PUBG last night. It's a pretty steep learning curve going from PC to console. The inventory system seems like they did their absolute best put there's no way they can make it as quick as it is on PC. However, I do like that you can attach/equip items straight from the ground with one button. That's pretty convenient and would be cool to have on PC.

    • Vlog coming to an end

      8 months ago

      burnie

      if you watch today’s vlog then you know that I announced in this video that I will soon be ending my weekly vlog. It’s been a tremendous amount of fun making the vlog for all of you every week. But it’s time to move on to new project and I really need to focus on that. Like I said in the video, I don’t know what the future of the vlog is – –  it could move to Ellie, or some other people at the company or it could just end all together. 


       I’ll be wrapping up over the next few weeks, so if there’s anything you would like to see an upcoming episode please let me know the comments. Thanks for watching, it’s been a really fun adventurous year.

      We all need to get better as fans of things. On last week's podcast, I said I liked Justice League, but I guess I didn't like ENOUGH for some people. I've been getting blasted on social media for daring to criticize the portrayal of Superman in the movie. I was actually way more critical of the Flash, but OK.


      Plus it's always oddly disappointing to get blasted by someone who has a cartoon avatar. I make cartoons as part of my living, but when someone is just furious on the internet and they choose to represent themselves with a picture of a cartoon character -- it's really hard to take it seriously.

      Congrats on Lazer Team Burnie! It was incredible and it really looked like a Hollywood film!


      On a sidenote, I just saw that it's rumoured that Grand Admiral Thrawn will make a cameo in Star Wars Rebels, which I think is the character that you wanted to see instead of General Hux in The Force Awakens?

      @burnie - we had a solid debate about climate change going on in the Oxford Comma Cafe here in the forums if you wanted to see some of the topics. It mostly starts on page 194, but it's a flowing forum with multiple discussions so look for the longest posts.


      Safe travels and good luck next week!

      Happy Birthday man. Hope it's been a good one.


      Surprised nobody else said it yet. Guess everything's moved to other social media or something. Hope everyone's been saying it somewhere.


      Sorry you got a cut finger for your birthday though, that's a bitch.


      Just curious - Do you have a Steam at all? Typically on someone's Birthday I go and look to see what they have on their wishlist, but yeah you don't have a steamname listed on your profile and stuff.

      Hey Burnie! There's two showings for Lazer Team near me on the 27th, but they're both sold out (I had to wait till paid to buy my ticket). Is there anyway to get another ticket or something? Just wondering if you might have any idea on what to do here. I really want to go see it.

      Hey Burnie, what are the chances of some songs from Jeff Williams and Trocadero becoming DLC in Rock Band 4? I was hoping that the sponsored stuff you did for RB4 would mean that you guys would be able to encourage Harmonix more than the fans who've used their song request page to try to get some RT music in the game.

      Hi Burnie,

      You announced in your vlog on the 26th last month that lazer team will be released on YouTube red, however there is no release date for YouTube red set in the UK. Are there any plans for releasing the film to the UK and any other country that doesn't have access to YouTube red or will it be a case of you'll get it when you get it?

      Thanks, Zac

        Season 1 Church was the Alpha AI(Seen during the CGI moments in the Freelancers Saga) who after the crash of the Ship and presumed death of Carolina was moved to Blood Gulch under the protection of Agent Florida(Captain Butch Flowers).

        Church was given fake memories based on the Directors life. When he "died" for the first time, he thought he was a ghost. This kept up for a few seasons and such, until Season 6 episode 19, where he got wiped out by the EMP.

        After that, the Epsilon AI took over the role of "Protagonist".

      I enjoyed the vlog. I thought it was well done and I will enjoy something further.

      The short 1min clips at the end is a great idea, you overlaying your audio is even better, that way it can cut off randomly and we know you did that on purpose.

      You asked for suggestions, and the one thing I'd suggest is being informative about your process. I know that you guys have inspired a lot of film makers (including myself), and I'd like to understand better some of the cameras you'd suggest if you were on a budget today, as well as other film related things. Roosterteeth is a great comedy-centered company doing very serious things in order for it to work. I'd like to know the gears behind it a bit more.

      At the beginning of Podcast 344, you guys talked about what constitutes an apocalypse, and you made the claim that even if only 10% of the population died, society would break down. It should be pointed out that during the Black Death, anywhere from 75, to 200 million people died. It's argued that because Europe was so depopulated, it allowed some amount of social mobility, which gave rise to the Renaissance. This is still argued to this day by scholars, but the caste system in Europe was heavily changed once the plague had begun to die down.

      Also, I keep lifeboat rations, and other survival tools in my car. I don't have any potable water, but I have water purification tablets for days.

      I had the great pleasure of getting to meet the talented Mr. Burnie Burns for the second time today after his speaking event in Lincoln, Nebraska.


      That man really knows how to give a motivational and informative seminar. I had an amazing time listening to his words and gathered a lot of useful information from what he had to say. Burnie was even kind enough to stay afterwards and meet everyone who came and take a picture. But what's great about Burnie is that he doesn't just take a picture. He also stops to have a short conversation with everyone he meets. And that's when you know someone truly respects and cares for their fans. They are willing to spend more of their time than they need to to make sure they get the experience they want.


      My experience is a great example of this. I got up to him, told him who I was and that I had met him a month before at RTX during one of his signings. Then I tried to motion the lady with my phone to go ahead and take the picture because I knew there so many people behind me and I didn't want to take up too much time myself. But then he stopped the camera and proceeded to ask me more questions and carry on the conversation. I was blown away. There was all these people behind me he still had to meet and he was willing to take the time to continue talking to me. We talked about RTX, my socks (which had chattering teeth on them), and a little bit about his presentation. Burnie really knows how to treat his fans and I am incredibly honored to have the experience with him that I had tonight.


      Burnie didn't have to come all the way to Lincoln, Nebraska to speak, but he did and I am one of a couple hundred people who are vastly appreciative of tonight.


      I am proud to call Burnie my idol.

      I have had the same profile picture since I created this account 4 years ago. Today I met Burnie Burns! I finally have a good reason to change my picture.

      Burnie came to Lincoln to give a presentation titled, "Creating Internet Content". He was nice enough to stick around for hours to meet fans and take pictures.

      The presentation was awesome. I learned a lot and I had a bunch of good laughs. Most of all it was great meeting him and interacting with him. I have honestly always felt that I want Rooster Teeth to focus on creating content that I enjoy. I don't need to take up their time with fan interaction. I enjoy their content and I am perfectly happy seeing them from my computer screen.

      However, seeing Burnie today makes me appreciate what he does for this community and Rooster Teeth's fans. He gives us a reason to laugh and smile. That is something I want to support.

      Hey Burnie,

      Just thought you should check out this youtuber penguinz0! https://www.youtube.com/user/penguinz0 He's a really cool guy who's fallen on some hard times. This ins't me shamelessly plugging myself, I've enjoyed his content for awhile now and I just thought if you like his work maybe you could reach out to him. I've had an account on Roosterteeth for a long time now and i don't comment or post much, but I thought this dude deserves some recognition. Again this isn't my content, I'm just a fan of Roosterteeth and penguinz0 who thought he could use some support.

      If we cut the Earth in half do we half two Earths?

        Yes. And a lot of dead people.

      Burnie,

      I just wanted to say thanks for all the laughs you given me. I started with RvB when i was 12 and I have grown up watching the series until today. No matter what has happened in life RT and RvB have been the constant source of smiles for me and it would not have been possible if you hadn't had the guts to try and make a show in a video game. Thank you for being awesome, can't wait to see what you have coming up soon. I will miss church but I look forward to any new charter you decide to bring life to.

      Thanks

      PS. I don't know what I said that made you block me on Twitter, but I am sorry! :P

      Also will you ever post the original death of church recording you made back in the day? Even as BluRay/DvD bonus?
