      Watching football, Twitch, and waiting for RWBY to come out is basically taking up all of my free time. And of course gaming, which I'll be doing a lot of since Rise of Iron and Forza Horizon 3 has come out.  I am bummed out there is no Checkpoint episode today because of a naming oversight, but I am pretty hyped for that to start up again, because Kyle and Miles are two of the funniest gaming drunks in history. 

    • RTX HYPE!!!

      apctrent RTX 2017

      Can't wait for RTX next week. My sister is coming in from college and she can't wait either. Plus, I got in the autograph session for Arryn and Samantha Ireland which will be amazing. I messed up the date for the sign ups, because I wanted to go the Arryn and Barb one but when I checked it was full up. But, it should be great as always. And I can't wait to see all the merch being sold on the main floor. My wallet might take a hit

      Just bought tickets for RTX, and I can't wait to go to my fifth RTX in a row! I've been to every one except the original small one, and it's always been a blast. Can't wait to see what special things they have planned that will make this year the best yet.

    • RWBY Season 3

      apctrent RTX 2017

      This will be spoiler free. RWBY's Season 3 finale was amazing! I stopped watching after the 7th episode so I could watch the end in one go, and I'm glad I did because it was a roller coaster through the late episodes. Miles and Kerry are amazing when it came to this season and I can't wait to see what they and the rest of the team come up with for the next one. And lastly, I want to credit the amazing man who was Monty Oum. I remember when he hinted on one of the first RT podcasts of a new project he was working on and how interesting it sounded at the time, and how he came up with the map of the world using ketchup and a burger wrapper. He created an awesome setting for a equally awesome story. I am so glad RT put their faith in RWBY and Monty!

    • RTX 2015 Review

      3 years ago

      apctrent RTX 2017

      This is a week late but RTX 2015 was so much fun. I missed out on Friday because something came up but I had a blast on Saturday and Sunday. I went with my sister and we both found cool stuff to buy on the main floor, with me getting three shirts, a Jurassic Park shirt, Star Wars shirt, and Achievement Hunter shirt. The panels were awesome as always, with my favorites being the RT Live Action panel and the second Achievement Hunter panel. I completely forgot about the new system for getting autographs, so I was kind of mad with myself. I wanted to go to the Arryn and Kara signing, but by the time I remembered it was three hours after the tickets for the lines went on sale. And, if I wanted to, I could have gotten a picture with Jack and Caiti, but I don't really like bothering people with things like that, but it was still cool I saw them. All in all, it was a great expereience and I cannot wait for RTX 2016!!!!

    • New Site Hype and RTX Hype

      3 years ago

      apctrent RTX 2017

      Been poking around the new site, and I have to say I am liking what I see. Everything is very clean and very slick looking. I'm sure there are some users who will complain that they don't like how things have changed, but those are the same people who complained the last time the site was updated a few years back.

      Anyway, I can't wait for RTX this year. This time I'm going to try to go out of my comfort zone and get pictures with some of the people who have some cool cosplays. And perhaps try to get in line to get something signed by one of the awesome RT people! I have a feeling this RTX will be even more awesome than last years was. just hopefully there are no idiots calling in bomb threats this year!

      I'm thinking of starting a gaming blog. Just mainly to give me something to do with my free time. Am I expecting anyone to read it? Honestly, no. When I don't feel like playing, I write about my views on different games I have played recently just in a notebook for myself. Of course, I need to think of a name. ATX Gaming could work, but I don't know if it sounds too generic. Oh well, I guess I'll have to start somewhere! I play so many types of games, so why not?

        Baseball is just one of those things that is impossible to predict. It just kind of depends if everyone gets hot at the same time, no matter how good the players or the team actually is. Having the highest payroll doesn't mean anything and having one of the lowest doesn't mean you can't make an impact in the playoffs.

        I do want to see what all this talk about the young-ins is about. I feel we still have a few more years of being in last or next to last.

        I don't know. I mean, their competition for last is with the Mariners, and they got Cano. But, I have a feeling the Stros will be vastly better, even if that means second to last. I will say they won't lose a hundred plus games again. They have the highest ranked farm system and they are probably calling up some of their most promising young guys. I'm not sure on names but they have an outfielder that can hit for power and a 19 year old shortstop they will call up, and some pitchers. I give them two years and they will be in the playoffs. Maybe next year they'll compete for the wild card, but that might be optimistic. I can't wait to see the talent! smiley0.gif

        I've had a similar problem here, not much in my lines of work and they all want vast experience (and/or qualifications that I lack) - but there's a temp job that I start on Monday with any luck, which might lead on to bigger things.
        Oddly enough, the piece of experience that I think clinched it was having helped out Faith's dad, so that kind of thing can lead to unexpected opportunities later smiley0.gif

        Actually, I think the company just maps things out and don't actually do the drilling. In terms of what I can do in it, I don't have an idea. Really its something to do until I can actually find a job more in line with my degree, which is in business. It's just hard to find a job in Austin because a lot of the job openings are are either for tech jobs or jobs that require years of experience, and it's relatively cheap to live here, which is why a lot of people from places like California move here, but there are not a lot of jobs for recent graduates with business degrees.

        I'm doing really well. I graduated last December and have kind of been taking it easy. Might even have a small job lined up helping a family friend with some GIS work. He basically maps out property and layers oil and natural gas fields over it to find out whose property it is under, and has been swamped with work, so he offered some work for me if I could learn the basics of the GIS software and help prepare things for him.

      I know that's right!! I'm not sure if I get more crap from being an Astros fan or a Roger Clemens Fan !! I have liked RC for a long long time!!! Also glad to just talk to another person from Texas on here. Now the 2 best things from this state... RoosterTeeth & the Astro's // lol

        I get crap for being a Clemens fan too, but he helped the Astros get to a World Series, so he's fine in my book, even if he was a Yankee at one point! I like other teams, the Angels and Rays, but the Astros are my favorite team by far.
        You actually have more friends on here than I do, and I've been on the site since 2008, but the one's I do have on here I liked what their journals were about or a few I met because I joined a group and they were looking for people to game with them.

      Yeah, the enlisted ranks fluctuate with scores - you've been scoring really well the last 2 game nights, so you were actually a Chief from about 5 games into the 4th of August smiley8.gif
      Essentially, a Chief Desyatnik Comrade has a weighted score above the average of all active Enlisted Comrades. I've spent some time there, but mostly when no-one else was playing regularly and I wasn't getting double-digit negative K-Ds every third game LOL
      If you're able to play tomorrow (starts in 22 hours) you'll have a shot at ranking up again, depending whether you rate Silver in the Arena smiley8.gif

      • Jalnor

        6 years ago

        Yeah, your average rating across all the games we've played (or, at least, where I remembered to take the picture) comes to 1230, which is fairly average, but there seems to be a slight upward trend recently in your ratings as well as your scores, so I think you have a shot at silver this season smiley13.gif

      I'm a retard. I saw 16:00 and thought 4 PM, completely ignoring GMT at the end of it. Forget one of the votes for 16:00 and make a mental note to place a vote for 20:00, although I might be on a little bit earlier, but this is just to be safe. Classes this semester are really screwing up my schedule!


      4pm your time is 22:00 GMT. Is that what you meant?

      What's your take on MW3? Some of my friends who've played it think that BF3 is better. smiley8.gifsmiley13.gif

      • apctrent FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold RTX 2017

        7 years ago

        I think it depends. They are totally different, with MW3 being more fast-paced and BF3 being more open and slower paced. If you loved the other Battlefields, I would say don't even consider MW3 and get BF3. But, if you don't like open battle space, where snipers and campers are hiding behind every rock, go with MW3. I would say if you wanted a game to play to have the most amount of fun, I would go with MW3, but if you are strategic and want to play as part of a team to win the battle, get BF3. My gripe about BF3 is that all of the BF games have seemed weird with the way the that you move, because I think BF3 was made more with PC gamers with mice and keyboards, but if are used to it, then more power to you. Also, in MW3, there is not that much difference between say a level 10 to a level 50, its all skill, but in BF3, if you are not playing it everyday, it will take a long time to unlock weapons and upgrades. And its unfair that a person playing a really long time should have the 12x zoom ballistic scope, or something like that. Hope this helps, even if its a bit long. I will probably play Mw3 more than Bf3

      Well, right about now, I was originally planning to be announcing that tickets for RvB:TX were on sale. Unfortunately, that's not going to be the case. You might have heard that the RT staff has their own event planed for late May. We, the organizers of RvB:TX, don't feel it will be possible to compete with a larger and better organized event, so we're officially canceling our event.

      But all is not lost! We're keeping the group page for two reasons:

      1) RvB:TX will now be a hub for all RT fans in and around Texas. We'll keep people up to date on RT related events in and around Texas, from small meet ups to the RoosterTexas event the staff is planning. If you have not already done so, please watch the group to stay up to date on the news.

      2) We're planning a smaller get together in Austin this winter. It won't be as big as our original plans, but it'll still be a chance for fans to get together and have fun.

      For more details, please see the journal here.

      Friendly Neighborhood RvB:TX Admin here! Just a few updates on the group today:
      1) We officially have 200 members! Sweet! You Guys Rock!

      2) We'd really appreciate it if everyone watches the group and checks the forum every few weeks or so. We post polls and messages on the group and we need YOUR input to make sure that this RvB:TX will be the best yet. If you already watch the group, thanks a ton! If not, go here and click the watch button. There are also polls concerning likelihood of attendance and optimum ticket price in the group forum.

      3) The event is being tentatively scheduled for next March. Hope to see you there!

      4) We could really use the help of a Web Designer. if you or someone you know could help us get even a bare bones site running, it would be greatly appreciated. However, please note that this will be an act of volunteerism on your part. We'd love to pay you, but we just don't have the money. But isn't being able to say that you designed a site in order to celebrate the greatest Machinima series ever reward enough? If you are still interested, please contact myself, or one of the other group admins.

      5) Keep active in the group. The planning staff is constantly looking for cool ideas for events, and they are the best spot to get yours out there.

      That's all folks! Keep your eyes glued to the screen for further updates.

      Greetings, Comrade! You may be aware of the recent (just-for-fun) hostilities between NATO and the USSRvB that started thanks to myself and the Captain... we're now preparing a war to end all wars, via several Xbox games:

      smiley9.gif Halo 3 (Team battles in the future)
      smiley9.gif Halo Wars (Generals at war, elimination-style)
      smiley9.gif HAWX (Team battles in the skies)

      smiley9.gif Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 (Team battles in Vegas)
      smiley9.gif Burnout Paradise (Team battles in a racing game)

      A quick look at your gamercard reveals you have some not-bad scores in at least one of those; would you be interested in helping defeat the Capitalist menace? If so, head over here to sign up!

      ...while I'm here, if you didn't already know about that, you probably won't know about the USSRvB's first annual convention, which is currently in the process of us deciding where to hold it - we've narrowed it down to three parts of the world and set the date, but it may well be simultaneously in all three places! Head over here to put your name against any places you'd be able to attend!
      At some point shortly, we'll start a quarterly "state of the Union" public address via the group news - so if you're not already watching the group, there's another good reason to click that button bigsmile.png
