      The Nerd Nest

      This weekend we gamed and livestreamed for 25 hours straight as part of the Extra Life team, Controllers for a Cause. It was an incredible experience for us and we want to thank everyone who donated, watched, chatted with us, and spread the word about our team. We couldn't have done it without you! As of right now we have raised $1,573! We are still $927 away from our goal of $2,500. Our team page will be up until the end of December so we encourage you to keep giving and sharing! All donations go straight to Children's Miracle Network hospitals and sick children who need treatment.

      During the stream we raffled off RWBY slapbands and a signed Brentalfloss poster. The winners of the RWBY slapbands are PinksTheWord, Spider_Dan, CtheReason, and Liamiamiam (Twitch viewer). The winner of the signed Brentalfloss poster is Trymantha (Twitch viewer). Congrats, everyone! If you didn't win anything, don't worry! We still have 2 more prizes to give away. The grand prize is a RWBY poster signed by Monty, Kerry, and Miles. It will be given to the person who makes the highest donation. We're offering another signed RWBY item for a lucky random donator. To enter for one of these prizes, make a donation in any amount to Controllers for a Cause. Due to the DDoS attacks to the Extra Life page, we are extending the ending date for these prizes to Sunday, November 10. Any donations received by that date will enter you into the raffle!

      Did you watch our new series, Let's Play Deadpool? Nicola takes a look at the hilarious comic book "hero" Deadpool's game in this series. We released 2 new Girls "Play" last week. For Halloween, Jill played Daily Fortune Teller to learn her fortune. On Friday, Jill played the awesome Fantasy Stars. Can she handle it?! We also released the next AHA! Game Night, featuring footage from our first ever Game Night that we used to create the Community Hunter video.

      Look forward to a brand new batch of videos and some new and exciting events from us in the near future!

    • Extra Life Livestream TOMORROW!

      5 years ago

      The Nerd Nest

      We are less than 16 hours away from our 25 hour livestream/gaming marathon for Extra Life! That's right, folks. The big day is TOMORROW! Controllers for a Cause is up to $1,125 right now! You all rock! But we still have a long way to go before we reach $2,500. This is where you come in.

      smiley13.gifWATCH our livestream on Angel TV to see all our hilarious shenanigans. During the stream we will be giving away signed RWBY merch and other great prizes. Tune in to see how you can win! We will also have a grand prize that will be awarded to the person who gives our team the highest donation during the livestream!

      Here's our stream schedule (all times are in CST):

      8 AM - 12 PM: Kariann will be kicking everything off with her stream.
      12 PM - 2 PM: Sarah will keep the action going with her stream.
      2 PM - 4 PM: Michelle will take over with her stream.
      4:30 PM - 6:30 PM: We will be playing GTA Online with the lovely folks over at SideQuest/RvB:TX.
      6:30 PM - 1 AM: Group play!
      1AM - 4 AM: Jill will keep the ball rolling with her stream.
      4 AM - 6 AM: Michelle will resume streaming.
      6 AM - 8 AM: Sarah will be the final streamer. All the ladies will return to end the stream.

      We'll be playing Assassin's Creed 4, Halo (3, 4, or Reach!), Cards Against Humanity, Battleblock Theatre, Minecraft, GTA V, Monaco, Payday 2, SpyParty, and many more!

      You can also watch the lovely Kiwi of Ladies of Rooster Teeth as she streams via webcam!

      smiley13.gifPLAY games with us! We'll need people keeping us energized through the wee hours of the night! Plus, we like you guys so join us, please? smiley12.gif

      smiley13.gifDONATE to the team! Any and all donations are appreciated! If you can't donate, please share our link with your family and friends! For just $25 you can choose what game we play for an hour! For example, if you want to see Jill play Princess Barbie and the Amazing Flying Sparklepoop (that's totally a game, right?), just donate $25 to her page and she will be forced to play that for 1 whole hour! Keep in mind when the person is streaming (so you can watch them play your choice) and that we're streaming individually for 4 hours so there are only 4 slots for each of us for sale. We encourage you to give more if you are able and you can purchase more than one slot!

      Good luck to everyone playing! Check out all these other awesome Rooster Teeth groups that are playing too!

      We're getting excited and we hope you all are too! Can't wait to play some great games with you tomorrow!

      This is it, guys. This is our big Extra Life week! Controllers for a Cause is currently at $860! Thank you so much to all our donors so far! We still have a long way to go before we hit that $2,500 mark. Want to help? We have 2 live streams planned this week and lots of opportunities to help us raise money for sick children!

      First off, Britt created this spooky poster to announce our Halloween livestream of Left 4 Dead 2! Join us on Angel TV at 7 PM CST on Halloween (Thursday!) for lots of fun, scares, and infected-killing galore. If we hit $900 (that's just $40 more!) by the start of the stream, we'll be playing on webcam. That means not only will you see all of our hilarious reactions to the scares in Left 4 Dead 2, you'll also see us playing in costume! As an added bonus, if we reach $1,000 by the start, we'll do (i.e. attempt) the Thriller dance on camera! If you want to see this happen, but don't have the funds, you can join the team and ask your family and friends for donations! Remember, all donations go directly to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals across North America.

      Our second livestream will be Saturday, November 2nd starting at 8 AM CST. This is our 25 hour gaming marathon to raise more donations for Controllers for a Cause. During this livestream we will be playing games with SideQuest. We will also have several opportunities to win prizes (signed RT merch!) throughout the stream so be sure to stay tuned all day so you don't miss any opportunities to win! Want to see us play a certain game? You can force each of us to play a game for an hour with just a $25 donation! To do this, donate to the player you want to see play the game and leave a message with the name of the game. You can force up to 4 hours (i.e. $100) of game play for each of us. We don't anticipate having any difficulties, but please also list alternate game(s) in case we can't get access to the one you want. We'll post a schedule of our shifts later in the week so you can decide who you'd like to donate to.

      Videos this week:

      Wondering what is happening with Kariann and Isaac? We heard some fighting going on the other day...

      Since our main focus this week is Extra Life, IHP has been put on hold until November 5th.

      We're debuting a new series on Wednesday! Subscribe to our Youtube channel to see it the moment it's up.

      Did you see our first Community Hunter video? Check it out! We'll be releasing the full AHA! Game Night for it on Thursday. You'll just hear Kariann's voice in this one since it was the Angels' first ever event!

      Girl's "Play" is back this week with 2 new episodes. Another Halloween-themed Girls "Play" will be released on Wednesday, then Jill is back with her regularly scheduled release on Friday.

      Don't forget to mark your calendars, join us for the livestreams, and donate if you can or ask for donations if you can't! As always, if you have any questions, ask away!

    • Another Amazing Week

      5 years ago

      The Nerd Nest

      We can't start this news properly without mentioning the awesome livestream we did on Friday night! We played Spy Party, a really fun and interesting game. Thank you to everyone who joined us, especially the developer, Chris Hecker. Chris came by to watch us play (badly) and to answer some of our questions! If you haven't heard of the game, you should definitely check it out. It's in beta right now (access available for $15), but it's incredibly fun.

      We're doing another livestream on Halloween (Thursday, October 31st) and we want to see even more people there. This livestream will also be part of our Extra Life fundraiser for our team, Controllers for a Cause. There will be a special perk if we get enough donations that night so be sure to tune in! If you can't afford a donation, you can still join the team and ask your family and friends for donations! The more support we get from you, the better we can help sick kids!

      We have 2 Game Nights scheduled this week. On Thursday, October 24th at 8 PM CST we will be playing GTA Online! Hope we see everyone there! For all you PS3 players: on Saturday, October 26th at 7 PM CST we will be hosting Assassin's Creed 3! The more people who join in on Saturday, the more likely we will be to host future PS3 nights so come and invite your friends!

      In Youtube news, Michelle tried out the latest Tomb Raider in last week's I Haven't Played! She'll be back again tomorrow trying out another game. Jill played Personal Monster Checker in last week's Girls "Play!" Watch her find the answer to life's most pressing question: What kind of monster am I? We will not be releasing a Let's Scare today, but fear not! We will have a special video for this series on Thursday. Finally, we are premiering a new series next Wednesday! We can't wait for you to see it!

      Want to join our GTA Online crew, Angels to Demons? It's simple! Just sign up for a Rockstar account then reply to this thread with your nickname and we will send you the invite!

    • Extra Life Game Night!

      5 years ago

      The Nerd Nest

      Remember that livestream we mentioned in Monday's news? We have more details for that!

      On Friday, October 18th, at 7 PM CST we will be playing and streaming the beta for a game called SpyParty. This game explores the subtler aspects of espionage like human behavior, perception, and deception. Your participation is essential to our success in this game! Come watch us on Angel TV, chat, and help us figure out who the spy is! You can also play along and see how you like it yourself!

      This Game Night is part of our continuing efforts to raise money for Controllers for a Cause, our team with the Ladies of Rooster Teeth. Our goal is to collectively raise $2,500 for Children's Miracle Network. The hospitals in Children's Miracle Network provide life-saving services to sick children whose families may not be able to afford the cost.

      We will be raffling off a ton of amazing prizes (did I hear someone say signed merch?) with a final grand prize on November 2nd. There will be many ways to find your name entered into our raffle. You can make a donation at any time, you can join our Controllers for a Cause team, or by taking part in one of our upcoming live streams.

      (FAQ: Q: If I make my donation anonymously can I still take part in the raffle? A: You bet! All you need to do is send an email to achievementhunterangels@gmail.com with proof of the donation and your name will be entered in.
      Q: How do I enter during a Live Stream? A: During the stream we will announce to our viewers how to qualify.

      Still have questions? Please ask!)

      There are a ton of other awesome groups here on Rooster Teeth who are participating in Extra Life this year. We encourage you to check out what they're doing and support them if you can!

      Team Rooster Teeth
      RT SideQuest (Connecting community and charity! For the children!)
      Team Knuckles(Started by Mr_Rippe in memory of our good friend David)
      RooTeeth (Aussies unite!)
      RT Latecomers (A group for newer RT Community members)

      In addition to this Live Game Night, we'll be having more opportunities for you to game with us and raise money in the near future. Please be sure to follow our team's progress and events at any of the links below:

    • Monday Update and Thanksgiving Wishes

      5 years ago

      The Nerd Nest

      Happy Thanksgiving, Canadian fans! What are you thankful for today? We are incredibly thankful for all of you (Canadians and non-Canadians alike)!

      Because of you amazing people we are a mere 10 members away from 200 here on the Rooster Teeth site and only 19 away from 100 subscribers on Youtube! You guys rock.

      When we get those 10/19 awesome new members/subscribers, we have extra special things planned! (Psst...we'll be doing a game night with a swag bag prize so invite your friends to join the group and subscribe to our Youtube channel! smiley8.gif )

      In videos this week, Kariann continues her Dead Space 3 journey by getting conned into an optional mission. Watch it here! On Friday Jill released her latest Girls "Play" - Devilish Trick. She gets a tad obsessed with a tasty treat in this one. Tomorrow we'll have a new I Haven't Played by Michelle for you!

      This Thursday, October 17, at 8 PM CST we will be having Game Night in Minecraft for Xbox! If you'd like to come, send a message to Kariann here on the site or to her gamertag ChickTasticGRR and she will get you all set up and ready to play.

      We're doing another livestream! Join us on Angels TV at 7 PM CST on Friday as we raise money for our Extra Life team, Controllers for a Cause! This is the team we created with Ladies of Rooster Teeth. We really appreciate your donations and support. If you don't have anything to give right now, don't worry about it! You can still share our team page with your friends and family or join our team for free and raise money on your own!

      We will have other events for Extra Life between now and November, but we're very excited about our 25 hour gaming marathon taking place on November 2nd! We will have more details on how you can participate as the date draws near.

      Hope to see all of you at an upcoming event!
