New Years Resolution 2015In the past I've always set little goals for my New Years Resolutions. Each year I meet most of those goals, but don't feel accomplished as none were actually a challenge, or took everyday focus. This year I've decided to challenge myself. I want my goal to be something I work on every day. I want it to be something I'm scared to strive for. That's why my goal for 2015 is to try out for Team USA at the end of the year. Of all applicants during the last World Games, only 100 were invited to try-out and only 15 made the team. Below are the steps I'm taking to reach this goal:

Diet Change:
-Limit processed sugar intake
-Eat out less
-Healthier home cooked meals

Working Out/Injury Prevention:
-Monday/Wednesday/Friday at Clock Work Body (workouts to build strength and endurance)
-Play pick up to maintain cardio endurance during offseason
-Once Doublewide season starts I'll lift less and add sprint workouts

Improve Specific Skills:
-Work on I/O flick and hucks
-Develop better awareness in order to help more with team defense
-Work on footwork to improve cutting and agility

This is a lofty goal, as there are many talented players out there who would love to represent the USA next year and while I would absolutely love to represent our country, the honor of trying out for this team would mean the world to me.

Any of you make some New Years Resolutions?

Game Kids UpdateA tad over a month ago, Geoff and I launched a new channel aimed towards creating family friendly gaming content. It was a huge change for my day to day, but an exciting one. One that would finally allow my brother and I to make videos again!

I'd love if you all would give our series a watch! I personally think episodes 2 and 3 of the Minecraft Life are our best work, but recommend you start the series at episode 0. Please let me know what you think!

That's enough about me, how were all of you? What all did you do for New Years?

Push Notifications OffOn the heels of deleting Snapchat (which I despise), tonight I deleted my tumblr and Instagram accounts. While I actually like tumblr and Instagram, I find myself on them far more than I should be. While I don't think using social media a bunch is a bad thing, people tend to use them in situations where they are with a group or worse, in a 1 on 1 conversation. This frustrates me to no end, and to make matters worse, I'm a huge offender of this.

This isn't some crazy revelation I've had about myself, I noticed my issue years ago, which is why last January my New Years resolution was to use social media less. In an effort to aid this goal, I turned off push notifications on all apps besides texts, phone, and GroupMe (group text app my team and friends use). This change helped a ton, but I don't believe it's enough. I'm hoping removing two more social media accounts will help the situation.

Anywho, what are your thoughts? Which social media sites do you enjoy/hate?

Games Kids LaunchToday at 3pm Central Time we will be launching the Game Kids channel. If you haven't already, we'd appreciate if you'd subscribe to the channel and check out our awesome trailer!

Games Kids is a channel focused on creating family-friendly gaming shows. If you have more questions about the channel, please check out the Q&A Geoff and I held last week. You are also welcome to post questions here.

To celebrate the launch, we thought that one video wouldn't be enough, so we are going to pre-upload 6 episodes before the official launch at 3pm. 5 of those episodes will have already been uploaded previously to either the Let's Play Channel or Bro Gaming Channel, but we felt it was important to give give an overall preview of the channel at launch. The plan for these videos is to begin uploading them at 12pm Central Time in 20 minute increments.

Pre-Upload Videos:
Kids Play - Star Control 2 with JD, Teddy, and Burnie
Kids Play - Burnie and JD mod FTL Millennium Falcon
Kids Play - Turbo Dismount with JD and Teddy
Kids Play - Little Inferno with Burnie and Teddy
Bro Gaming - The Minecraft Life Episode 0
Bro Gaming - BattleBlock Theater Chapter 1*

Launch Show:
Sims Sisters - Creating a Sims Family*

*New content

Going forward, the channel will follow a regular schedule:
Mondays: Sims Sisters
Join Millie, her nanny Chelsea, and occasionally her parents Geoff and Griffon, as they explore their creativity in the world of Sims.
Wednesday: Kids Play
Matt, Webb, and Mills or Burnie, JD, and Teddy come together to play video games and strengthen family relationships.
Friday: Bro Gaming
Join Caleb and his younger brother, Jordan, as they test the limits of their 21 years together through cooperative gaming.

A huge thanks to @brianb for staying up way to late on way too many nights to get all the intro animations finished and for designing the Bro Gaming log. A big thanks to @Jon who designed the Game Kids, Kids Play, and Sims Sisters logos. Thank you to @TrevorC who came in over the holidays to finish editing all of the content you will see today. Without the three of them this channel would not launch on time.

If you have any questions, suggestions, or just want to say hello, leave a comment below!

Extra Life 2014A ton has already been said about the Extra Life stream, so instead of making a lengthy journal, I'm going to list a couple bullet points and link to Jack's entry.

Stream begins Saturday, October 25th at 8am CT and ends Sunday October 26th at 8am CT
I will be in and out of the stream at random times during the 24 hours
You can watch the stream at twitch.tv/roosterteeth
I would greatly appreciate if you'd donate to my fundraising page. I'm aiming to raise $1000!
Donations to my page go to Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas and contribute to the Rooster Teeth team total.

Please let me know if you have any questions!

Rooster Speak Achievement Challenge League!Rooster Speak is holding a monthly contest called Achievement Challenge League! In this contest, Rooster Teeth community members sign up to challenge one another to achievements/challenges they’ve completed in their favorite games.

Rules
Get a person randomly assigned to you to hand out 3 to 5 challenges (number determined by recipient of challenges) of your choice.
The person must have the same game as you do for the challenge, unless you ask if they are up for purchasing said game.
Recipient of challenges also must not have completed said challenges.
Each contestant has exactly a month to complete all the challenges.
Challenges can consist of achievements, special run throughs doing a certain task, 1v1 competitions, 100% a game, etc.
Every challenge that you send out, you must have completed said challenge previously. You can’t challenge someone to 100% Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare if you haven’t completed it yourself.
Upon completion of a challenge, be sure to let @Noblesteed or @Newbs know about it by posting a screenshot and either private messaging us on the site, or use the hashtag #RSACL and tag us (@RoosterSpeak, @Noblest_Steed, or @Newbs28) and your challenger on Twitter, whichever is easier for you.
We will be updating the monthly scoreboard on a regular basis when these completed challenges come in.

Scoring
You complete a challenge, you receive a point.
You fail to complete a challenge by the end of the month, you receive a negative point.
You complete all challenges presented to you for the month, you receive an extra point.
The person with the highest score at the end of the month, or the one to finish their challenges in the fastest amount of time, will receive a prize of their choice ($20 value) in the Rooster Teeth Store!

If you’ve enjoyed your time after the month is over, feel free to continue to play and sign up for the next month. We will be having prizes for people throughout the coming months, and at the end of June, big prizes like RvB Box Sets and posters will be handed out to the contestants with the highest overall scores!

Sign ups are located here, and the scoreboard is located here. Signups are open for the month of November, and close at 12:00 AM CDT on October 26th! If you are having issues in coming up with challenges, please feel free to check out all the previous month’s submissions. Lot’s of great...and evil challenges have been dished out.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask us (Noblesteed and Newbs). We’ll be happy to help!
