      Was wondering what all my recent e-mails from the Rooster Teeth site were about. :P I'd just like to say thank you for choosing me to be the Featured User! Looking forward to seeing everyone at the next RTX and can't wait to see the RvB Season 11 finale on Monday! Miles you rock!

      And with that It's Time to Party!

      So I didn't make it into the show for the first season haha, but Nathan and I have vowed to try even harder during the casting of season 2.

      "OMG liek we hav sooooo many EPIC gam3r skillz," I said for fun right now.

      Other than that, I look forward to seeing the rest of the season and rooting for David Alexander just right off the start. Just because :P

      But yeah, I've debated doing videos, and I figure I'll do them for the posterity and well for my love of games. Starting today I'll be working through one of my favorite series, Metal Gear, and so I should have part one uploaded later in the day :>

      Also, if anyone knows of a good video capture card that can record N64, Playstation 1 (I'm working to see if I can use a PS3 to do this), SNES, and Dreamcast that would be awesome! I tried using my Black Magic Intensity Shuttle to record a game I have for the PS1 via PS2, but alas it would work for a bit and then it wouldn't capture consistently and the screen just goes black.

      With that, catch you guys later!

      P.S I definitely want to catch Wreck It Ralph this weekend after seeing AVClub gave it an "A" and so that's renewed my interest in it :D Saturday I'll be watching Cloud Atlas so can't wait to enjoy some Wachowski goodness!

    • Chuck and Voting

      sdesperado

      Today was a good lazy day.

      I finished Chuck and I just couldn't believe all the feels I had while watching the last 4 episodes haha. I recommend it and well if it doesn't appeal to you, then my bad :>

      In other news, I finally voted for the first time for a presidential election! Woot Woot! I'm proud to have done it, and looking forward to seeing who wins in the coming weeks.

      Sadly I won't be able to make it to the RvB:TX LAN party as I gotta save up on resources and well I didn't want to show up with no Xbox and no games :< But I wish them all fun and pwn those newbs! (I don't normally talk like that haha)

      Goodnight everyone! Going to catch up on the Rooster Teeth Podcast (currently on #186 at the time of this writing) while leveling in SWTOR.

      So working on some new videos just to keep me busy during the school year since I'm not working at the moment, and I can't wait to share them with everyone. First vid should come out on Halloween!

      This weekend though I'll be finishing my run-through of Chuck with my brother as we watch the final three episodes at his place. It's such a good show and I recommend everyone at least check it out and give it a shot :D

      I'll also be making the trek to Austin for a LAN party hosted by @GB330033 and so looking forward to it! I don't have a Xbox anymore, but I'll gladly bring my Halo Reach controller for support :P

      Other than that can't wait to see what Rooster Teeth has up it's sleeve soon.

      And with that, goodnight!

      P.S: Also going to see Cloud Atlas, been interested in it since I saw IGN posted the 5-minute long trailer for the film :>

    • Post-RTX 2012 (aka Insomnia Post)

      6 years ago

      sdesperado

      Been a while you guys haha.

      Originally the plan was I was going to release a journal in conjunction with the release of a video where I have some adventures with my "prize" from the RTSidequest raffle on the day after RTX ended, but alas that obviously didn't happen :P

      I want to say I actually got pretty busy with work at the Boys and Girls Club. Plus I was in the middle of a transition to a new guild in SWTOR and became a raid leader for the new guild (it's just hard to say no haha).

      I didn't mean to completely drop off the face of the earth as far as social media goes, but I will say there were a couple bright spots here and there with some of the cool things that happened Post-RTX.

      First off, RTX 2012, was such a blast. I missed the personal environment brought on by the first RTX, but I feel the way that Rooster Teeth handled the convention more than made up for that hole in my heart :P It was tons of fun really, I met a lot more cool people this year, including those from last year (you know who you are) :D, and I have to say you definitely get a bigger sense of the community at play here that are all fans of Rooster Teeth and gaming and, well, the internet!

      I do plan to volunteer at the next RTX as I stopped myself from applying this year after figuring I'd show my best friend that'd be accompanying me on this year's trip a good time. Needless to say I think I made the right choice :> But yeah, I also kinda stopped myself as I didn't have experience working at a convention so I figured that would've made me a liability as far as getting things done efficiently. (An efficient man I strive to be).

      Soo after RTX came San Japan and I applied to volunteer for them back in June. I got accepted and I was assigned to help out with the Events staff. Mainly I was in charge of handling Panel Room 4, which was on the 4th floor of the Grand Hyatt Hotel, and did my darndest to crowd control and make sure everyone was following the rules and keeping everyone safe. I helped out whenever I could, and I always asked for help when I didn't know the proper procedure for some things and if there was anything that needed help with.

      I had a good time volunteering....nay...it was the best experience I've had as a volunteer! (I've volunteered with local non-profits here and there, but nothing events wise). What put the icing on the cake for me was that I actually got a little call-out during the closing ceremonies when the main staff were asking for all the volunteers to come to the stage to take a bow. One of the event staffers saw me walking down the aisle towards the stage and pointed at me and said, "Oh yeah, especially this guy!" I felt so proud :D I never met anyone on staff beforehand, so as to make that kind of impact definitely felt great.

      Soon after San Japan had come and gone, the Gamestop Expo happened on the first day of school back at UTSA. I unfortunately had to miss my first class of Classical Mythology, but I think what transpired makes up for it.

      I was kind of a lost soul, none of my friends were able to get a ticket for the Expo, but at least I got to wander around and see many of the great games that are coming out later this year. One of the highlights for me was getting the chance to play Black Ops 2. They had set it up for teams and I just so happened to have won a match by helping support the other players I was pitted with on my team. Overall, if I still had my Xbox360, I'd definitely get it.

      Finally, jumping forward, I showed up to the Rooster Teeth Casting Call today for their new show that is "gaming" related. I want to say I feel pretty confident I did okay in the audition, but here's hoping they can get past my little nervous switching of words. I can't believe I actually got nervous haha, but it happens to the best of us. (Oh no! If you take the Ego out of Egoraptor, I'm just left to become a Raptor).

      But yeah definitely glad to have come up today for the audition :) It helped that my friend Nathan and I got some Gourdough's as a consolation prize in the event that we aren't chosen to be in the new show :P (I ordered the Heavenly Haze, and Nathan got the Black-out. We both only finished 1/4 of the entire donut).

      All in all, it's been a fantastic Summer and looking forward to what the rest of the year brings :D

      Hook 'em and let's get Rowdy!

      And so I am off! My friend Nathan has arrived and I'm all packed and ready to go! My badge is right by my side and so looking forward to seeing you all there!

      I'll be at all five Sidequest events so see you there as well :D

    • 10 more hours!

      Just gotta finish this day at work and I'm officially on the way to RTX! I'll be driving up with my buddy Nathan and heading straight to the Highball for the first of many Sidequest events!

      Tomorrow's going to be a registration and feeling fancy kind of day as we check in to the Hampton Inn right by the convention center and have dinner at Fogo de Chao, because why not?!

      I just can't wait and so excited! Let's do this!

      Felt appropriate. Anyways it certainly has been a while haha.

      So let's see, where to start.

      Red vs Blue Season 10 has been a blast, just wish more stuff would happen plotwise, but I understand it's all part of the plan so just waiting to see how it all plays out in the coming weeks/months.

      Casa JP is still chill as ever, nothing new has been added to the household, but I am looking to upgrade my computer with a Solid State Drive. Gotta reduce those load times.

      Videos are coming soon, going to invest in a Hauppage unless the solid state drive helps my computer in handling the Black Magic Intensity Shuttle. Really hoping for the latter.

      Well the guild disbanded. We all transferred to The Shadowlands, home of The Drunk Tanks!, and kinda merged with a new guild named Deathstar Project! It's been really great and looking forward to seeing more from Star Wars: The Old Republic.

      Diablo 3=Meh.

      I'm kinda lost in Final Fantasy I and just prolonging my eventual turn to strategy guides to figure out where to go. I'm looking for the cure for the elf prince? I think that's about right.

      Alright, looking forward to seeing you all at RTX!

      Have a great weekend everyone! And remember....Magic Mike sucks! According to @barbara at least :P

      See ya!

    • One more week!

      7 years ago

      sdesperado

      Really excited to see the new season of Red vs Blue next Monday! I'm wondering if it'll continue right where it left off or whether we'll see some good ol' Monty Oum and friend's goodness right off the bat.

      On to the update part of what's going on here at Casa JP

      It's been a hectic past couple of weeks so I haven't been able to record new videos, but it's all good really. Should start getting back on that soon.

      I'm leading a new team of people for my guild. I decided to call ourselves Team Kickass cause that's what we do pretty much and there's no replacing us. We kinda had some of our team members missing this week and well we couldn't really get stuff done due to the absence of our two greatest DPS.

      I bought into the Diablo 3 craze after trading in a good chunk of my Xbox games (also bought Final Fantasy XIII and XIII-2 just to finish out the collection) so I'm slowly but surely making the transition to being a PC gamer.

      All gaming stuff aside, glad this semester is over and looking forward to working in the summer. Not sure where I'll be yet, but I definitely look forward to doing my best wherever I go. I can't wait for RTX and to see some familiar faces at Sidequest events as well!

      This past Saturday I attended a fantastic event called SA2020, which is a sort of convention/presentation to get San Antonio to be even more amazing by the year 2020 through service and volunteerism.

      www.sa2020.org/

      Well that about covers it I believe. Time to sleep!

      ahh, thats throu the achievement hunter tab, near the top theirs a link to "games im playing", and you just go from their, a good way also is to click on peoples "games im playing" in their profile and select from their, theirs a pretty big list, kinda difficult to navigate, and they only have games available that you can win achievements in
