    • Pets and RvB Names

      I'm considering making a group dedicated to pets who have been named after RvB characters. I did some searching and couldn't find a group dedicated to that yet (which sort of surprised me), cause I didn't want to create an already existing group.

      The thing is, I have a horrible history of creating groups or w/e on sites that I didn't think existed prior and then later finding out something like that already exists, even though I was positive I searched and couldn't find it before.

      So uh, anyone know of a group like that that already exists? Just double checking so I don't goof for like the hundredth time in my life.

      Borderlands 2 is on sale on steam for 10$. And you can get all 34 DLCs for 20$...

      Welp. Guess I'll finally be able to play Blands2 with my pc gamer friends!

      Also props for selling Psychonauts on sale for 2.50$, though I'm still bitter about Mirror's Edge being Windows only. Steam you'll be the death of me.

    • RTX 2013 finale

      Now that my body knows the work is over I'm finally beginning to feel the aches of a long few days. I think my jaw is actually sore from talking and cheering so much, and my voice is definitely shot. It makes me hope all the other Guardians (especially Mary and Chris) give themselves a much needed break and rest, since a lot of people were so much more active and busy than I was. I can't even begin to imagine how wiped they must be.

      Still though, this weekend was so amazing. I can't say it enough.

      Holy shit. That seems to be how everyone is describing everything today, and to be honest it is extremely fitting.

      This experience has been amazing. I loved RTX last year as a regular attendee, but I have to say I enjoyed it to lengths I never knew I could being a Guardian this year. I really hope I get to be one next year, too, because I don't want to experience RTX in any other way.

      Rooster Teeth (the company and the community) is filled with some amazing human beings. Every single Guardian I met was just absolutely amazing. I have never met so many people who are so passionate about being helpful and working as a team through any and all roadblocks they may face. We had some major problems pop up throughout the weekend, but you never would have known from the outside, because everyone was so quick to jump in and work as a unit to help fix things. It was wonderful working with these people and meeting all the fans and attendees. There really are no words to describe how amazing this experience was. I'm exhausted, my voice is finally going, and I feel like my feet have bruises on them. But I'm so excited and happy about this experience. Seriously.

      All the staff I had the privilege of meeting were so supportive and friendly. Working the museum was awesome because pretty much the entire RT staff walked through it at some point or another during the weekend. I really wish I could have sat around and talked to them more, though I don't think there was any spare time anyone had throughout the weekend to do so. Chris and Brandon were awesome helping us set up and get things in order throughout the con, and it was great to see everyone - staff and fans alike - enjoying all the props, sets, and zombie shootings they could.

      Also if anyone ever says that the RT staff isn't connected to or cares about their fans, they are absolutely insane. Despite having to be in certain places or wanting to rush around without getting caught, every single staff member I saw took time to sign what they could and take pictures with who they could, even outside of panel signings. It was honestly one of the hardest parts of my weekend to have to disperse crowds around the museum that had gathered to see staffers who had stopped by because I could tell the staffers really wanted to appease the fans. I especially felt so bad today as the exhibit hall was closing. Kerry had shown up right by the exit and was doing last chance signings and taking pictures for fans and I had the sad job of telling people they had to move on. Kerry ended up doing speed signings to get as many signatures in as he could. Seriously, RT staffers care so much about their fans it's mind blowing.

      (Don't tell anyone, but the crowd didn't fully get dispersed until 6:03. I just didn't have the heart to immediately kick everyone out ok.)

      And then the fact that the staff stuck around after the hall closed to meet with, sign for, and take pictures with the Guardians was so humbling and appreciated. Everyone was tired and had worked so hard, but we all stuck around to give each other pats on the back and talk to the RT crew.

      I think I could gush a lot more, but my brain is getting a little too tired to spew things out coherently. I just want to say thank you to anyone who helped out at RTX that is reading this, and that this weekend will be one of the most memorable experiences of my life. For good reasons, of course.

      Now! Time to go expand my friends list with some of the amazing people I met this weekend.

      Every time I think to myself "Man I am just so fucking tired" I think about all the Rooster Teeth staff and other Guardians that have to get up earlier than I do and stay up later than I do and suddenly I don't feel so tired anymore.

      Still kinda tired though.

      Also: Being a Guardian is fucking awesome and I'm loving it so much smiley12.gif
