      What the biggest challenge that faced when starting Red vs Blue?

      Answered: May 27, 2016

      Hard to say. Delivering video was tough. Making time to actually make videos was tough (everybody had a full time job). Paying the bandwidth bill was also really daunting. Those are the ones that pop to mind right away.

    • Come see us in San Francisco, LA and Austin!

      gus Elite Staff

      There are so many options for you to see us in the next couple of weeks!


      First of all you can come see us with the Kinda Funny guys at Kinda Funny Live 2 next weekend in San Francisco! I'll be there with Burnie, Michael, Geoff, Adam and Bruce (from Funhaus) and of course the Kinda Funny guys. It is a two day event and there are a limited number of tickets remaining so make sure to jump on that!


      June 17th the AH guys will be taking over the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles for Let's Play Live. We're working on some crazy ideas to top the original Let's Play Live and should have some details about that pretty soon! Check back to find out what special guests will be joining them as we manage to put on a show that will surely get us banned from ever going to the Dolby Theatre again.


      Finally of course is the event that started it all, RTX. Returning for the sixth year RTX is July 1st-3rd in Austin. Be there to see the spectacle we work all year to create. There are sure to be new announcements and unique experiences on the show floor that you have to see in person to believe.

      Hey gus, I was wondering, when the new podcast set will be complete? I remember that you said you guys would have the new one either just before or just after the steak off.

      Answered: May 16, 2016

      Soonish. The set is done but we are spending a little more time working on the graphics package to give them a refresh.

      Can you play any instruments?

      Answered: May 16, 2016

      I took guitar lessons for a while when I was about ten years old but haven't played since then.

    • IlliSprings asked gus a question

      With you and Barbara being in charge of RTX every year, do decisions on events, panels,etc... only go through the two of you, or are there more people involved in the decision making process?

      Answered: May 9, 2016

      Bethany has taken over my RTX responsibilities so I am not involved nearly as much as I have been in the past. Barbara and Bethany take care of RTX panels. Bethany evaluates and decides what events RT attends.

      Eddard Stark's recollection of the events at the Tower of Joy are probably my favorite passage in the entire "A Song of Ice and Fire" series. The television version played out slightly differently than it did in the books. If you enjoy Game of Thrones and have four minutes to spare you can listen to the passage as it is in the book here:


      My second favorite passage in the series of books is probably Septon Meribald's speech about war and broken men.

    • Podcast a little late today

      gus Elite Staff

      The podcast will be up a little late today. We wanted to add the interview that Geoff and I did with Duncan Jones and Robert Kazinsky to it and that is taking a little longer than expected. Podcast will still be up later this afternoon.


      --edit 2:20pm--

      We are going to release the podcast without the interview segment. The interview will be released as a bonus segment along with next week's podcast. Sorry for the delay.

    • PAX East 2016 Recap

      1 year ago

      gus Elite Staff

      I wanted to sit down and write a recap of all the things I saw at PAX East this year and I had a realization. I’ve been to just about every PAX since the first one back in 2004 and I’m sure I’ve talked about the things I see at the show, but I’ve never actually talked about what it is like to work at the show. So, armed with that realization, I’ve decided not to write about the games I saw at PAX East, but instead give you an insight as to what it is like to work at PAX East.


      I arrived on Thursday evening and flew out on Saturday afternoon, so it was a whirlwind tour. This year’s PAX East was an extra important one for us because we were going to be showing off our new 50’x50’ booth for the first time. In the past we always had a 10x20 booth that looked less than professional. We really wanted to have this new booth show us in the best possible light.

      Thursday

      Before I got to Boston, we had a team of people head out earlier to help oversee booth assembly and stock the store. Bethany Feinstein, Emily McBride, and Rachel Novak all showed up on Wednesday and worked with Freeman to get the booth set up.


      I landed in Boston around 6:00 p.m. on Thursday and texted Bethany, asking if the booth was finished and ready for the show. PAX East opens at 9:00 a.m. on Friday for press attendees, so I was hoping she’d say they were finished and I could just go show up for dinner. Bethany sent me a photo showing that was not the case, so I decided to head to the convention center to help out.


      phDpVIY.jpg


      I checked into my hotel, dropped my bag off, and got to the convention center around 6:45. Emily needed some help getting our point of sale system for the store online so I got to work on that.


      We typically use two iPads to run all of our sales. When I tried to turn them on, they both needed to be charged. We only had one charger so I plugged one in to charge and decided to take a look at the internet. The event did not have wireless internet access for exhibitors, so we had a wired ethernet drop. After confirming with the internet provider that we could use our own router to create our own WiFi network, I got to work on that, only to discover that we had a router but no power supply for it. I unsuccessfully searched for a router at a few stores near the convention center, so I had to take a taxi to a store further away from the convention center to buy one. I purchased the router, headed back to the convention center, and got to work setting it up. I configured the security on it and confirmed it worked by connecting my phone.


      I took a look at the iPad I had been charging and it was able to turn on now, so things were looking up. For some reason I couldn’t get the WiFi to activate on it, so I rebooted it and discovered the WiFi was still disabled. I didn’t know what happened, but for some reason all wireless functionality on that iPad was broken. Bluetooth and WiFi were both greyed out and could not be enabled. I panicked a bit because if our second iPad was also broken we’d have no way to process store transactions. I plugged in the other iPad to let it charge a bit while I helped out with various tasks in the booth. When the second iPad finally booted up, I was able to get it on the WiFi and launch the point of sale system. Typically we like to have two units, but at least we had one functional iPad.


      There was also a slight problem with the videos we were going to be playing on the TVs in our booth. We had several displays showing highlight reels of Rooster Teeth content; the reels were only 40 minutes long, and when they ended someone had to manually use the remote to restart the reel on the TV. It wasn’t an ideal solution, so I offered to take the video and re-export a new version where I looped the 40 minutes over and over into a 400-minute reel.


      After a bit more work, we were able to call it a night and finally went to dinner at 10:00. We were all so exhausted that we retreated to the hotel immediately after eating. I stayed up a bit longer trying to fix the iPad by upgrading the iOS and doing a system restore, but the wireless functionality never came back. I also started an export of the video reels, but that was going to take four and a half hours to complete. I finally hit the sack around 1:30 a.m. and set an alarm for 6:15 a.m. to check on the video export.

      Friday

      I woke up at 6:15 a.m. and was pleased to see the video exported fine, so I decided to copy it to the USB sticks that fed the video to the televisions. The next part of this story gets a little technical, I apologize. I realized that the USB sticks for the TV had to be formatted with a FAT32 filesystem. FAT32 only allows for files up to four gigabytes in size. The file I had exported was just over seven gigabytes, so I could not use that file on those USB sticks. The reason the highlight reel was only 40 minutes long was that was the longest our editor was able to make the video and keep the file under four gigabytes. I texted Bethany and let her know I failed to fix the iPad and failed to fix the issue with our video reels. I arranged to get the USB sticks to her team when they headed to the convention center at 7:00 a.m., and then went back to sleep.


      I officially got out of bed around 10:00 a.m., showered, and began consolidating all the assets I needed for our panel. Our panel was at 1:00 p.m., and I had some images and a video to show so I wanted to make sure everything was on my laptop and that it all worked properly. I also had to make a document with all the talking points I needed to hit, and spent some time organizing everything.


      At about 11:00 a.m. I realized I had a problem on my hands. Normally, in a panel, the presenter shares visuals by plugging a laptop into an HDMI cable that sits on the stage. Guess what? I didn’t have the correct adapter to convert the port on my laptop to HDMI. I did a quick Google search and found a store near my hotel that might have the adapter I needed. I walked to the store and discovered they didn’t. By this point it was noon, so I had an hour to find the adapter and get to the panel. I jumped in a cab and had the driver take me to the same store I purchased the router the night before. The whole ride to the store I kept kicking myself for not having thought of this during my last trip to that store. I arrived at the store, purchased the adapter, and caught another cab back to the convention center. Fortunately traffic wasn’t too bad, and I finally walked into the convention center at about 11:40 a.m.


      I immediately walked to the theater our panel was in and headed backstage. Everyone who was supposed to be on the panel was waiting there, which was good because I hadn’t had time to check and make sure everyone knew where the panel was. We talked for a few minutes, went over the things we were going to talk about, then headed out to the panel. The panel went off without any problem and we wrapped it up a little after 2:00 p.m.


      When the panel was over, I realized I hadn’t eaten all day and was getting pretty hungry. My next commitment was at 3:00 p.m., so I had a little bit of time to find something to eat. Unfortunately every dining option in the area was packed and had long waits. I settled on some food from a vendor in the convention center and ate it as quickly as I could so I could make my meeting.


      At 3:00 p.m. I met with some of our partners, and we wrapped up around 3:30 p.m. After that I had another appointment to play Overwatch at the Microsoft booth, so I headed to their booth and got one game in (my team won).


      I had to be back in our booth from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. to sign autographs and take photos with people, so I had a few minutes to spare. I found a quiet corner to call my wife and talk to her briefly.

      9H7KLg2.jpg

      4:30 p.m. rolled around, so I headed back to the booth and finished the day there trying to meet and talk to as many people as possible. The times like this in the booth are my absolute favorite thing about events. The day was long and I was exhausted, but the energy people bring to the booth really helps keep me going.


      The floor closed at 6:00 p.m. and I ran to a meeting with some people from YouTube. We had a couple of drinks with the YouTube folks, then went and had dinner and spent the rest of the night hanging out with Mega64.

      Saturday

      On Saturday the floor opened at 10:00 a.m. and I had to be there to sign autographs from 10 to 11:30 a.m. I woke up bright and early, and headed down to the convention center. I’m always a bit sluggish in the morning, but I was extra tired Saturday for some reason. I met as many people as I could until 11:30, then I had to run to another meeting. That meeting wrapped and I headed back to the Microsoft booth to play Gears of War 4. I played one round (my team lost), then I had to find a quiet spot to eat and have a drink.

      Xg0GBvY.jpg

      I headed over to the Westin and found a quiet spot at the bar, and ended up sitting next to two people I knew. I had to interview Duncan Jones and Robert Kazinsky about the Warcraft movie at 2:15 p.m., so I decided to work while eating at the bar. I know quite a bit about Warcraft, but I wanted to make sure I was as prepared as possible for the interview. I researched the publicly known details about the movie and wrote up a bunch of questions to ask. While I was working, a very nice Rooster Teeth fan bought me a drink. Thanks, it helped fuel my research.


      1:45 p.m. crept up before I knew it, so I ran back to our booth to make sure everything was in order for our interview. I met up with Geoff, went over all of the questions, and met Duncan Jones and Robert Kazinsky. We got our microphones and headed on stage. We chatted for maybe 15 minutes, then wrapped up the interview. It was really great to get to meet those guys, and they were super nice and easy to talk to.


      Our guests took off, and Geoff and I had to run to the airport. I had a 4:00 p.m. flight, so went to the airport directly from the convention center and headed back to Austin.


      This ended up being much longer than I expected. If you read this far I hope you found it interesting. I thought you might want a little bit of insight as to what we experience when we go to an event.

      Hey Gus! I just watched The Patch and you mentioned your getting into speedruns. Have you seen Portal Done Pro?
      Another speedruner you should check out is Puncayshun on Twitch, he currently holds the WR for Super Mario 64. Both of these speedrunners use glitches, which I think make some very interesting speedruns.

      Do you have any other favorite speedrunners or speedrun games that you didn't mention on The Patch? I am also starting to get into speedruns.

      Gus,

      In previous podcasts and on the most recent audio podcast, currently #307, you had mentioned how You, Burnie, and Geoff had been apart of scenario paintball events in the past and that you had expressed interest in attending existing ones. I am currently employed at a paintball field that does three annual large scale scenarios. The three events have different gameplay formats that vary from a 7 team showdown to amass the most points from capturable bases during Global Conquest to a massive 2 team battle for control of the field. Unfortunately, to my dismay, we are no longer doing 24 hr scenarios due to complaints and slow dwindling of player attendance. If you are interested in the events you can check out the fields website at [link=http://www.hellsurvivors.com] and contact me either on the roosterteeth site or through my email at Quantum.Malice@yahoo.com if you or anyone would be interested in attending. These events are in Michigan and I can understand that it is a large distance to travel for a 2 day paintball event.

      Referee and fan,
      Ryan Motyka

      On the podcast y'all speak of Uber a lot. I think it might be an interesting talking point if the current fines levied against Uber and Lyft were debated upon. Like in Palm Beach County Florida they have fined Uber and 6 drivers $44000 for basically not being an appropriately marked "taxi" company, even though they are not a taxi at all but ride sharing instead.

      Long War is a great mod for the game and if you are interested and have some spare time I highly recommend checking it out since it has over 700 changes both big and small to the game. Here is a link to site I found it on. www.nexusmods.com/xcom/mods/88/

      Just finished watching the podcast, great episode. You guys were talking about the Podcast awards and I saw some movies you didn't mention, so here are some movies that needs to be on the Podcast awards list:
      1. Captain America: The Winter Solder: Great Espionage story and a different approach from Marvel.
      2. X- Men Days of Future Past: Don't listen to Burnie, this film is awesome
      3. Under the Skin: Very Dark but Scarlett is naked

      I haven't been able to find anything about it anywhere, and I missed last nights podcast and it isn't up yet. So I am asking here: What happened to the RT Podcast awards? Did you move them to the other podcasts completely and not mention it? Or is it coming up soon?

      EVE online
      Gus and also Gus if you want to try out EVE I will walk you through it. I have been playing for about 5 years, and the only part of the game that might get you is how skills in the game work. they train over time not off of xp from kills, so buying a character that has some training might be better if you do not want to wait

      thanks for your time

      Hey Gus,

      I'm not sure if this is something that could work, but I had a suggestion for future RTX fun. Gencon, one of the biggest events for board gaming, has a partnership with a local brewery.

      "As part of this agreement, Sun King will become a Promotional Sponsor of Gen Con 2014, create and sell the Official Beer for the convention, hold an Official Beer Tapping Party on August 13, and operate an Official Gen Con Beer Garden on Georgia St., outside the Indiana Convention Center. Fans once again will select the name of the 2014 beer, prior to the convention. In past years, fan-named beers have included Ale of Destiny (2012) and Flagon Slayer (2013)."

      I could just see this as being a successful part of RTX, where you guys get some cross promotion in terms of an RT beer. I know I'd love to see something like this happen :) Already, some fans have thought of good names, like "Bock Damnit Barb" and maybe a grape ale.

      Here is a press release if this is something you think could be fun:

      Hey Gus, I don't know if you check these comments ever but I was thinking you should make a weekly show/blog about shopping tips/recommendations.


      Cuz i've always wanted to be as pretty as you.

      So the Achievement Hunters have just expanded their Minecraft world and now there are border crossings. It would absolutely make my day if they made you booth at each one and in the future whenever they wanted to cross, they would have to hand you a in-game written book with their passport information. You could also question them and check them for contraband.

      Glory to Arstotzka.

      I know you may not remember nor care because it was something you had casually said but you asked when you'd finally be able to watch movies opening day from the convenience of home. The Interview has brought this honor whether or not you enjoyed the shenanigans around it being aired or not.

        As much as I want them to give us that convenience, I feel that the loss out ways the "pros" of having us watch it via the web and not the theatre. I also imagine that the want/need for watching movies in a theatre is still very existent.

        I agree with the piracy being a reason this may not take off the the twitter user that Gus shared with us had a valid point if the movie was only released in america maybe id say about half of those thefts were from over seas of people just trying to see it. And id thought they had said that The Wolf of Wall Street had been the most pirated movie of 2014 but I don't have my own fact checker so hey lol.

        I don't think that is going to happen. From what I hear from ScreenPlay, they stated (Brandon stated) that 1 billion people illegally downloaded the movie. I checked out the rental of the movie on "opening night." It was $6 to rent it for 24hrs. Now, if 1 billion people didn't pay for it, that's already a loss of 6 billion dollars. Of course, the number may not actually be that high. But there is a loss in there somewhere. And that's the reason why they won't allow us to watch it from the convenience of our home. There are plenty of people downloading it illegally. The Interview is a clear example of why it won't work.
