RvBTX StuffSo, RvBTX will be turning 4 next month. In case you haven't seen, we're doing a couple things for it.

First, we're having another BBQ potluck in Austin. You should come.

Second, we're having another contest. We're looking for an official RvBTX cocktail. The winner gets a $50 gift card. You can find the details here.

If you're in Austin on the 10th, bring a side and come say hi.

11 Years of Rooster TeethI know I'm preaching to the choir when I say that RT has had an immeasurable impact on my life. But seriously, it has. We've also all heard the stories of others, and how RT has helped them through rough times or even saved their life.

Hell, throw all the feels out the window and you still have over a decade of success and comedy in an environment where most others wither and die within a year or two.

As much I want to write about it all, in encyclopedic proportions, the task is far too daunting. Pleasantly so.

In the words of Jodie Foster:

"No - no words. No words to describe it. Poetry! They should've sent a poet. So beautiful. So beautiful..."

I'm Disappointed in You, InternetHave you seen this?

It's the latest Super Power Beat Down of Captain America vs Master Chief. I talked about it not too long ago. And surprise, surprise...it ended exactly like I called. The CA fanboys dominated the fan vote, and Captain America won.

The comments on this video are full of people calling bullshit (myself included). I know it's a fan vote, and that they have to make the video entertaining, but god help this video doesn't do MC justice. They have a little intro, where they talk about the pros/cons, but it's always so forced and fake. They didn't even talk about a single fact from the Halo novels.

I saw this last night, and no joke, it almost ruined my evening. I shouldn't take it so seriously, but as a gamer and a 10+ year fan of Halo, it doesn't sit well with me.

Fans should not be allowed to vote on things like this. We saw something similar when they voted for Wolverine beating Batman. Fans can't be trusted. It just become a popularity contest. The show already skews toward comic book characters. A video game character doesn't stand a chance. They should just find throw together and impartial panel of industry experts, and have them vote on each winner.

Whew. It feels good to let it out.

PS - CHIEF DIDN'T EVEN HAVE ON THE RIGHT ARMOR. OTHER THAN THE HELMET, IT'S ALL MARK V(B). HE'S NEVER WORN THAT ARMOR. EVER. NOT IN A GAME, COMIC, OR NOVEL. IT'S PROBABLY THE LEAST COSPLAYED HALO ARMOR OUT THERE. WHY THE FUCK WOULD THEY EVEN USE IT?!?#??$@$?!??

AnimeBeen on a real anime kick lately. I love going on binges and then adding them to my list on ANN. I recently finished Attack on Titan and Sword Art Online. I'm also current on Kill la Kill, re-watching the original Fullmetal Alchemist, and working my way through Heaven's Lost Property (I know, I know).

Anybody else watching anime out there? What are you watching? Anime discussion, go!

The Quest for 100% Halo Achievements Continues...So, I thought I was real close. I managed to 100% Halo 4, and only had Spartan Assault to go. I was originally going to wait until I got an Xbox One, since it had more achievements than the 360. However, that got me thinking. Do Spartan Assault achievements cross over between platforms?

THEY DON'T. There are apparently FOUR separate listings in your Gamerscore. Xbox One, 360, Windows 8, and Windows Phone. WHAT THE FUCK?!

I'm a collector of Halo achievements. I don't just 100% the main games, I 100% all of them. So guess what? I have to 100% Spartan Assault FOUR TIMES...ON FOUR DIFFERENT PLATFORMS. Holy shit. This going to be a task.

The good news, is that I hear some aspects of your progress in the game carry over. Not sure how that affects achievements, but at least that's something.

Right now, I'm working on the 360 version. The other three are going to suck though. I don't have a One, I don't have Windows 8, and I don't have a Windows Phone. Not too worried about the One right now, since I plan to eventually get one, but I don't know what I'm going to do about the Windows versions. Might have to 100% it on a friend's device maybe. I don't know. I just hope that I have the problem solved by the time the supposed H2 Anniversary edition comes out in November.

Anyway, I just wanted to share with you my ongoing saga with Halo achievements. I swear, one of these days, I'll get there.

RT Community History BookCame up with this idea after reading a friend's journal the other day.

It'd be cool if there was a history book of the RT community. Like a history textbook. The major events, cultural traditions, distinct eras, etc.

I think I'm going to try to write that. I figure I will start out by researching member's own recollections throughout the history, analyzing RT's own accounts on the subject, and then form the common threads, events, themes, and individuals. From there, I will probably further research the distinct items. In the end, I'll likely string them together based loosely on chronology and influence.

It will require extensive interviews, research, and proofing. But I'm determined.

HOWEVER, I'm going to take my time. Don't expect this anytime soon. RTX 2015 sounds like a good goal.

What do yall think?
