      Does anyone have the Bioshock Infinite soundtrack? I was going to pay the extra money for it but Gamestop only had enough for pre-orders. The tunes from these games are the only ones I really love as an addition to my music collection. Don't see it for sale anywhere.

      I have questions. You have answers.

      I'm not a mega fan of Dragon Age: Origins. Is the second one much better than the first?

      I'm guessing it's worth buying Mass Effect 3 used for $20 right?

      I've played Assassins Creed 1 & 2. Do I need to play Brotherhood & Revelations or should I just skip to 3?

      I've started taking time off for RTX this year. Should I volunteer or sit one out till I get a feel for it? I'm just curious...I only have a day to register though should I get pushed towards it.

      So I wouldn't mind going through the campaign on Legendary at some point with a person or persons and I would like to go through the Spartan Ops on Legendary even more so. If anyone is up for for gathering a party now and then I'm game. Unfortunately, I work till 9pm CST most nights.

      Still, if anyone is game let me know.

      So I will be doing the whole midnight release. This will be my first one since...well since Halo 2 I believe. Catch you on LIVE maybe. Laters!

      My trip to Toronto exposed me to the game "Slender" while watching Rage Quite & Achievement Hunter videos at Ryan/Britte's place. I've yet to play the game but after watching videos of it and the reactions of people playing it I've scared myself enough already. I now am sitting in my room...in the dark....and may never sleep.

    • The Grand Finale

      Here it is, a week after I made my final drive up to the final RvBTO event. After a two year absence the long drive up didn't seem nearly bad at all. I'd actually say it was the easiest. I was excited but it was a calm excited. I knew what was in store, the people I'd see and that this year there was a little work to be involved as well which seemed only fitting.
      I made my way up the zig zag of the concrete creations I had vague memories of from my previous trips. A city here, a toll there, a rest area or even a familiar road. Faces or bits of conversations had with friends who had previously made the journey with me, this was the first time alone. I'm not sure if that is what made the trip seem faster than the others or if these thoughts just made the clock get less of my attention. Either way the drive was nice the memories nicer.

      My living space this year was with the now married with child on the way, Abandoned & Brittewater. The scene was a little different this year but the people hadn't changed. I parked and walked up the steps to be greeted with hug from the expecting Brittewater and shortly after with booze from Abandoned & Capt_Ed who I had not seen in too long. It was a perfect start to the event and it also was a good jump start for my liver.
      Over the next couple of days more familiar faces would show up. The beauty queens Bey & Invisiblepen soon arrived at the Hotel Vindua. A not so familiar face also joined us, this was Spenny (who I can't locate on this site). Honestly, though after about 5 minutes I felt like I'd knew him for years.

      Soon we would all make a trip to the unofficial meet up. This first couple nights weren't lengthy but it was great to see all my friends from the past. This includes BigNiceJohn, elebellybear, Jengaship, John, Microbe (and his Aussie), bookworm & squall_born, Cheshire_cat, DiMono, deathbyoi, Spamman4587, Kschenke with Purdueohol & Lukie. I'd also catch up with may others later such as Wingnut, Shashi (and James), M00SEKNUCKS (thank you for the AO shirt!!), Thundera with Morgan & their beautiful child. It also got to see some great musicians take the stage a couple times.

      As the events continued my official home away from home, the Ram & the Rye soon showed it's oh so familiar face. I have always loved this place & it's staff are always more than great...this year was no exception. I was able to make some new friends here as well this year and also give back if only a little by volunteering for the event...though this did mean missing an incredible mini-sticks tournament I hear. It was also incredibly shocking to see just how much I'd missed the past couple years though. It grew from being packed to...well super pac'd. This was in a way bittersweet though too. As the QA began it was increasingly apparent that saying hello to Barbara, Burnie & Katheen once again was difficult. And meeting Gavino was just as impossible of a feat. I even felt bad to even want to say hello due to the throngs of gathers each one attracted. It really drove home just how big Rooster Teeth had become. So while I'm was very glad to see this popularity, I did miss that time in the past where more than a brief hello didn't seem like I may burden someone.

      The course of that Saturday/Sunday was just a phenomenal time for what I considered the main days of the event. Games, car bombs, drinks, friends, memories, recollections, shout outs, drinks and then more drinks. It pains me to see it end but I'm very understanding of it. The new event though, RTO seems to be in good hands and they all seem level headed and know where they want to take it. With so many friends up North it's impossible to say I won't be back but things on my end have changed as well. And with my daughter now living in Austin it may be time to head 14 hours to the South and start a new Rooster Teeth chapter via RTX. Only time will tell.

      I'll end it with this though. RvBTO wouldn't exist without Red vs Blue. But when you look at the bigger picture RvBTO, as a fan event really is more about the fans. Friends. Family we've all become all these years. I proudly wear the RT tattoo I have not just in support of the find work this company has done but to all the people I've met and shared even a brief moment over the past 8 (almost) years. I may not say too much on here but the amount of love I have in my heart for all of you couldn't really be put into words in the first place.

      Thank you Rooster Teeth & thank you to everyone involved or whom I've had the honor of meeting if even for the slightest of moments at the RvBTO events past & present. To those I met this year, to those I saw again this year and to those faces we missed this last time around...it's always been great. We are all somehow, someway better people from this. We are all apart of a very special group with a very special bond. A club in a way...just not like the one where someone hits you in the balls.

      Yeah...I'm gonna end it on that.

      PS - I'm not even going back to edit this as I want it to be what I had on my mind. Not something I may alter or lose when I originally wrote it. So forgive me for any errors.
