      Well, I think I've reached the point where I'm once again ready to move on from Rooster Teeth.
      I don't do anything here anymore, for the last six months I've been falling out of love with Roosterteeth, not just the website but the company in general. Shorts are boring to me, I can't watch Past Cast at all, and RVB itself feels like it's writing, the thing that I used to love the show for, has been ignored in favor of Anime fights and CGI.
      For the last four months I've barely even checked this site, and since this last update I've just given up all together. I don't know, I only come here to see what about three people are doing, and now it's kind of a pain to do so. If I'm honest, I just don't see any reason to come here anymore, and at this point it's just a bookmark that's sitting there ignored.
      If you want to keep up with stuff I'm doing then I'm of Facebook over here: www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1624736653
      But honestly, I doubt you're going to miss much by not doing it.

      ..Right, if this is the last thing I'm going to post here, then I'm going out in style.

      So, Apparently I passed my 5 year RVB anniversary this week.
      I don't know why, but something about that seems really strange to me.
      I've been on this website for almost exactly 25% of my life.
      That's just wierd.
      The momentous half decade passes, I'm no longer a sponsor and I've been pretty inactive for the last few months.
      DerpShrug.png
      Then again, I haven't really been that active on here since I stopped RPing about three years ago.
      oh well.
      See you in another five years!

      EDIT:
      Disclosure.
      Two new chapters.
      Soon.
      Promise.

    • RVB Season 9 (Ranting)

      7 years ago

      Thechurch

      Mmmmmnph...
      I haven't really been that buzzed about this season.
      Yeah, the ending was nice, but the season itself has been too... Anime for my tastes.
      It's like, they have thrown away their inhibitions when it comes to "what should we do"
      So when someone says: "They jump off a building, fight a bunch of dudes on the way down and then get saved by a flying warthog." Instead of replying "Yeah, that's cool, but this is Halo not Devil May Cry or some shit" they go "YES. BUT WITH MORE EXPLOSIONS."
      The fights in the last season were crazy, but they had just enough realism to get by.
      No offense to the Animation crew, but the Animation in this season looks really cheep. There's no fluidity to the motion and no object has any weight, it constantly breaks any immersion I have. I'm not saying it's of poor quality, I'm saying that it seems rushed. If it were amateur or independent work then it'd be amazingly good, but coming from RT it just seems like it was thrown together over the course of a few minutes because they needed something to make this season worth watching.
      The story has been pretty good, and it's really helped by the CG idling, the way the Spartans stand and move in conversation now they're not restrained to Machinima builds a lot of character. Jumping from that into Machinima seems like a massive step backwards each time, like they want to tell their story in CG, but are held back due to the fact RVB is, and always has been, a Machinima, and therefore bound by the rules of what you can and cannot do in Halo. Now those rules are gone, instead of retaining them as guidelines, they've just gone off the fucking rails. Now... now it's just... nuts. And it's crazy being treated as seriousness. The serious makes the crazy stick out, and the crazy makes the serious seem laughable.
      It reads like Fanfiction written by a skilled, but young, author. There's a great story, but it's bogged down by sequences that seem to have been included for no reason other than to make it "Cool".
      It's a disappointment and a shame.

      Unless the next two seasons are really good, this trilogy will be the only trilogy I don't buy.
      And, in all honesty, I won't feel like I'm missing anything.

      Disclosure_One.png

      Oh hey, it's that thing that I meant to post about a month ago.
      ...
      Whoops.

      And, to give me something else to do and make me feel a little more important, I'm going to post a little bit of Trivia with each chapter, because... because why not. It's interesting to me, so you should all pretend it's interesting to you.

      Today's generic trivia piece:
      Rawley is named for Flight Captain Carol Rawley, more commonly known by her callsign of Foe hammer in Halo:CE. While working on the development of the characters I realized I needed a pelican pilot who the rest of the characters could depend on, someone who would come through for them no matter what. Someone like Foe hammer. So, when it came down to it, I decided to name Rawley for her, in honor of the Pilot who have her all for us on that godsforsaken ring, giving us her life so we could escape. That and Rawley sounds like a fairly Griffon-y name.


      Oh, and at this point, I'm fairly convinced that Jackhammer chose his hairstyle simply to fuck with me when I try to cram it into a helmet.
      What an arse.

      Then she sleeps on my complaint:

      I won't be able to watch the the season opener of Friendship is Magic season two with a straight face anymore.
      Thanks to Star Trek.
      Leaked footage has revealed that the new villain, Discord, is voiced by John de Lancie, who famously played Q in Star Trek.
      He is apparently playing the same character now, in my Pony.
      If you are unaware of Q, watch these two clips for an example of what he is like:
      www.youtube.com/watch?v=VBTRp80Q64U&feature=related
      www.youtube.com/watch?v=sKR_RWkLgAE&feature=related

      And now, watch this leaked clip of Discord in the upcoming Two-parter.

      www.wired.com/underwire/2011/09/my-little-pony-season-two-clip/

      Damnit, it's the exact same character.
      Now I can't escape the knowledge that Discord is just Q, who has grown bored of Picard and chosen to troll Twilight instead.

      Also, he stole Rainbow's wings.
      This cannot stand.

      Having followed them most of the way, their real effort was mostly physical quality of the material itself. They worked with very high end equipment to not only make visually transforming video effects, but high end audio practically compatible with every system currently in use.
      Plus, one had a heart condition which often interrupted the pace, and was one of the reasons they split it into two parts back last year. Then when they came "back to life" in June, they revealed one had become a father & another became a full time teacher in 3D animation and rendering, forcing them to cancel the second part. But there was a long gap of spare time for them both that aloowed them to return to the second part and finish the project as a full feature length as intended. So it was more like 5 years of effort with a year unable to continue.

      What I take into account is finding voice actors is awfully difficult (It's certainly the hardest task we've got on our project), especially back in those days when they were gathering the essential assets amonst puppeteering & filming. It's only been in the last 2-3 of years that voice actors for machinimations became more openly available and easier to locate, or at least have time to spare to accept requests.

      But to call it the best machinima in the history of mankind is definitely an overstatement. It's one of the greatest I've seen in my time, but that regards it's cinematographic setup & editing quality, and has plenty of high action that'll leave any action junkie thoroughly satisfied. If it's story and character one looks for, there are many that better it.

      It's been their style. They did the same in their old Battlefield: Vietnam feature length "The Fallen One". Of course 6 years ago, using dialogue from your favourite choices of films or video games for serious purposes was more accepted back then. These days it's rare to find it's use for anything else other than comedy as copyright allows content to be used in "a parodic manner" and people on the net want a laugh, not all that serious stuff. But that's been the magic of the classic machinimations. Making use of what little you have to make something remarkable.

      The only actual flaw that I felt it caused in Sands of Fire was unless you followed it very closely, identifying any individual character was very difficult.
