  • Horizon Zero Dawn Goes Gold, Gets Early Impressions

    10 months ago

    Eddy Writer - The Know

    Horizon Zero Dawn, one of the biggest PS4 exclusives of 2017, has officially gone gold! Guerilla made the milestone announcement on Twitter early this morning, along with a picture of the team in celebration. 


    Along with this news this week comes a number of hands-on press previews, with multiple outlets writing about the first 4 hours of the game. Saying that the early previews have been glowing would be a massive understatement. So far, the general consensus is that Horizon Zero Dawn is going to be one of those special titles, and that it's incredibly ambitious in its scope, as well as super addictive. 


    Polygon called it a beautiful, deadly open world; Eurogamer called it "surprisingly compelling" ; and Engadget says they're already hooked. In particular, Engadget's preview talks about how gorgeous the game is in 4K with HDR, which is one thing that has me pumped as well, being a new PS4 Pro and 4K HDR TV owner. Since Horizon was first scheduled for October (just ahead of the PS4 Pro), and was one of the first games built for PS4 Pro from the ground up, I'm expecting it to be the first big showcase of PS4 Pro's capabilities. 


    Fortunately, we won't have to wait too much longer now. Horizon Zero Dawn comes out on February 28. Any of you guys planning on getting it? 

  • The Future: No New Movies Required

    They announced Diego Luna is going to be in a remake of Scarface with production hopefully starting this spring. Diego was most recently in Rogue One and Scarface was most recently remade in 1983. I say "most recently remade" because the 1983 film is a remake of the 1932 film which is an adaptation of the 1929 novel by Armitage Trail.

    This year we also have remakes for King Kong, Beauty & the Beast, The Mummy, Spider-Man, It, Flatliners, Friday the 13th and Jumanji being made. In January we had 3 sequels and in February we have 3 more.


    My point is last night I watched Captain Fantastic with Viggo Mortensen and it was magical and I want everyone to watch it so we can talk about it.

  • Ace Attorney Characters Playable in Monster Hunter Explore

    10 months ago

    micaburton

    Last week, Monster Hunter revealed that Sailor Moon will be celebrating it's anniversary by collaborating with Monster Hunter XX, putting the Cutie Moon Rod weapon and Luna into the game as a playable weapon and character. Now fans have another reason to get excited-- the mobile game Monster Hunter Explore is crossing over with the well loved franchise Ace Attorney. Although not known for their combat, popular characters Phoenix Wright, Maya, Miles Edgeworth, And Franziska von Karma will be battling it out in their own way in the Monster Hunter Universe. 


    How do they fight, you ask? Well, Phoenix and Maya have the police mascot-- Blue Badger-- on a stick which increases fire attacks by 1.5 and restores physical strength by 100. Miles and Franziska on the other hand fight with the "Contradiction-Piercing Lance" which is hilariously jst Phoenix Wright's "OBJECTION" arm. It even comes with a shield that mimics the famous "OBJECTION" graphic. Their weapon doubles water attack damage and has overall more attack power than the Badger.

    img_ss_1.jpgimg_ss_3.jpg

    The chance to unlock the Ace Attorney crossover only lasts until midnight on January 31st, so hurry over! But don't worry if you miss out on this, Monster Hunter XX  with the Sailor Moon expansion releases on March 18th.

    I'm writing today's prompts post while listening to music from epic films scores so it sort of feels like I am writing this while riding on top of a dragon up in the clouds instead of in my pajamas next to a dirty plate where I just ate my breakfast from. What should we make jokes about this week?

    SYNC ABOUT IT

    • Finish the sentence: How to...?
    • Feel free to submit more than one idea.

    COME AGAIN?

    You give me a story and I make them act it out. This week I'm looking for prompts involving:

    • Something strange that happened at the gym
    • Things you don't want to learn about at a family reunion

    ASS SWIPE (Prompts v2)

    • We need suggestions for personality traits of the worst date ever.

    POST SHOW: GIVING HEADLINES

    • Find an odd story from the recent news with an equally odd headline that we can remove a word or two from for the the guests to fill in the blank.
    • Look for headlines where a blank space would leave the story open to a lot of different interpretations.

    Now the music has turned into James Bond music so I think I will go take a shower now while singing the Adele song from Skyfall. xoxo The Risemonger

    Today marks one year since we debuted our first movie Lazer Team in theaters around the world. Getting to see the movie with so many community members from Australia to Orlando was one of the best times I've ever had at Rooster Teeth, and knowing that you guys made it happen is still something that totally blows me away. I'm glad to let you know that the movie is finally available on a ton of digital platforms around the world, including:



    We're busy working away on LT2, and we'll have more news on it very soon. Thanks again for your support and can't wait to do it all again!

    Today's vlog will be a bit of a rerun for most FIRST members but there is an announcement at the start of the video. In a nutshell, the Vlog will now be available to the public after a window on FIRST. We are also going to start producing it on a weekly basis. We plan to make a FIRST only vlog that is more of a "state of the union" for Rooster Teeth. 


    Thanks for the suggestion that the Monday vlog should be the one to introduce the public to the production. I agree it's a good representation.


    PS there are some new shots in the Monday Vlog. I spent time with a couple more groups to get a more complete view of the company. 

  • Mass Effect Andromeda Gets New Trailer Tomorrow

    10 months ago

    Eddy Writer - The Know

    Bioware announced via social media today that yet another Mass Effect trailer will debut tomorrow. Along with the announcement came the slightest of teases -- a 15 second look at the upcoming release. On Facebook, the video's description reads: "A new galaxy awaits, but no one said it would welcome us. Tomorrow, you'll get your next look at Mass Effect: Andromeda."


    But lest you get too excited, it seems like this is going to be another cinematic trailer of sorts, rather than straight up gameplay. Which, if I'm being honest, is a bit of a bummer. Even though Bioware has been hitting us with a media blitz about the game since they announced the release date, they've still done so without really showing much of anything substantial. Considering the game is only coming out in a matter of less than 8 weeks, that's a bit concerning. 


    Part of me wonders if they're holding back on showing off more of this game because there's something significantly different about the gameplay, or if it's just that they're worried about the backlash they saw with Mass Effect 3 in general, and are opting to keep things nice and understated this time around. Something tells me this game is going to be awfully close to Dragon Age: Inquisition -- not only in its gameplay systems and structures, but also in its staying power. While I loved Inquisition, it wasn't really a game that stuck with me. 


    But hey, maybe I'm wrong about Mass Effect Andromeda. Fortunately, we don't have to wait too much longer to find out. 

  • "Sailor Moon" Musical Heads to Anime Matsuri

    10 months ago

    micaburton

    Big news for Sailor Moon loving theatre nerds: Sailor Moon The Musical is slated to to a special one night performance during Anime Matsuri-- a convention in Houston. The popular production which has had multiple successful runs in Japan are flying out their star studded cast to put on the musical April 7th, the first day of Anime Matsuri.


    animematsuri_670.jpg


    The cast includes:

    • Hotaru Nomoto as Sailor Moon
    • Yume Takeuchi as Sailor Mercury
    • Karen Kobayashi as Sailor Mars
    • Kaede as Sailor Jupiter
    • Rimo Hasegawa as Sailor Venus
    • Syu Shiotsuki as Sailor Uranus
    • Sayaka Fujioka as Sailor Neptune
    • Mikako Ishii as Sailor Pluto
    • Karin Takahashi as Sailor Saturn
    • Yuga Yamato as Tuxedo Mask

    Longtime anime fans know Japan loves putting their popular shows on stage and they are-- surprisingly-- always done very well. Budgets are large, the cast is talented, and the costumes are ones cosplayers would kill for. The popular Kuroshitsuji musical was so successful, two long-running sold out sequels were produced.


    It is very rare America gets the treat of professional anime musicals, so I know I'm excited! Who will I see at Anime Matsuri singing along?

  • Introducing the New Rooster Teeth Games

    10 months ago

    MichaelHadwin Michael P. Hadwin

    Today is a very exciting day for the Rooster Teeth Games team. As of this morning, we are a new video game publishing division focused on bridging the gap between indie game developers and the worldwide community of gamers.


    Rooster Teeth Games plans to bring a wide array of games to all platforms, and in turn introduce indie developers to our super awesome community. We invite all aspiring indie developers around the world to pitch their best games to us! We’re kicking off this effort with Battlesloths 2025: The Great Pizza Wars, a game developed by Invisible Collective, which will be available on Steam this March.


    tP2EGKQ.jpg


    Battlesloths 2025: The Great Pizza Wars is the fast-paced multiplayer competitive twin-stick shooter of your slothy dreams. Compete with up to four human players, or play against some tough-as-nails AI sloths should you be short on friends. Use a myriad of weaponry, each with their own strategies, to destroy your enemies in a quest to collect the most pizza. This game features 20 unique weapons, 4 game modes, customizable battle settings, and more hats than you can fit on 700 sloths’ heads. Revel in the silliness of the slothpacalypse, shoot everything that moves, and start hoarding pizza!


    You can play Battlesloths 2025: The Great Pizza Wars at our booths at PAX South (January 27-29), RTX Sydney (February 4-5), and SXSW (March 16-18). Hope to see you there!

  • VR Waifu Simulators Launch in Japan

    10 months ago

    micaburton

    What's better than zombie fighting in VR? Boobs in VR. And Japan is not holding back when it comes to using this new technology to give us all the virtual reality boobs we could ever ask for. KOEI Tecmo Games announced yesterday that finally, after fan's have waited for so long, VR support for Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Fortune would launch today. Players who already have the game purchased will have a free update until February 28th, and after that, it will cost about $13 USD.


    USnIPaG.jpg


    In "VR Paradise" mode, players will be able to access Photo Paradise, Graveure Paradise, and Event Paradise all in virtual reality. And if that's not enough, the girls' rooms at the end of every night will all be accessible as well. Players can also purchase a "VR passport" for about $27 USD which will allow them to unlock Marie Rose and Honoka as playable or viewable characters. 


    If Dead or Alive is a little too over the top sexually for you, don't worry, Japan has it all. A relatively new title from Bandai Namco called Summer Lesson is starting to get attention in the states for its new offering of English subtitles. In a twist on traditional dating sim, instead of just getting to know a character and develop a romantic relationship, you are also her school tutor and are tasked with making sure she has a successful education as well. The majority of the game takes place in Hikari's bedroom over the course of 7 days, giving the player a chance to grow and develop their relationship with the digital girl.



    Now, before people get their VR panties in a bunch, this is not a hentai or VR sex game. If anything, it's "education simulator 2K17". But, that does not mean there wont be sexual undertones that can be played up or down depending on who is wearing the VR headset. To each their own, as they say!


    I know I can't wait to go to Japan this summer and pick up these games personally-- the future is now!

    Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue- Jan 24th - PS4


    Giving longtime Kingdom Hearts fans something new to chew on while they wait for Kingdom Hearts 3, 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue combines Dream Drop Distance with two new experiences!  


    First off, Dream Drop Distance has been remastered in HD and features a much faster battler experience than in previous incarnations of the franchise!


    The second addition is a new movie titled Kingdom Hearts X Back Cover.  This tells the story of the “Foretellers”, and links earlier parts in the series to more recent revelations.  These story points were briefly explored in the mobile only game Kingdom Hearts Unchained X.


    The final experience in Final Chapter Prologue is the part to get the most excited about!  Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep - A Fragmentary Passage is a brand new story featuring Aqua and takes place after the events of Birth By Sleep.  This brand new game links to Kingdom Hearts 3 directly and offers fans of the series a taste of what KH3 will be like!


    Tales of Berseria - Jan 24th - PS4 / Jan 26th - PC


    The seventeenth game in the Tales of series hits PS4 on the 24th and PC on the 26th!  Skits, full animated cutscenes, the much loved battle system, and of course the unique Artes all return!  A new element to the series is the Soul Gauge which replaces old combo mechanics that allows for moves to be reflected and “Souls” to be stolen and absorbed!  Building up this gauge allows characters to enter a “Break Soul” state that gives them the ability to exceed combo limits, trigger unique effects, and more.  Fans of the series may notice this world and it’s history seem a bit familiar, which is intended as Berseria is set in the distant past of the world shown in Zestiria.


    Yakuza 0 - Jan 24th - PS4


    It’s time to return to the world of the Japanese mafia!  Yakuza 0 takes the series way back to 1988 and giving more information on the past of Kazuma Kiryu and Goro Majima.


    Major changes in the series come primarily from the battle system.  Both Kiryu’s and Majima’s fighting styles can be switched in the middle of battle.  Kiryu has Brawler, Beast, and Rush styles while Majima has Thug, Slugger, and Breaker.  Each style has its pros and cons, some are faster, some utilize heavy weapons, and others can be a bit more stylish and fun.


    Tongue in cheek humor, fictionalized versions of Tokyo's Kabukicho Shinjuku Golden Gai areas and Osaka's Dotonbori areas, a deep character customization and growth system, as well as a ton of minigames, Yakuza 0 has tons to offer.


    Resident Evil VII: Biohazard - Jan 24th - PS4, Xbox One, PC


    The true survival horror has returned yet again!  The seventh installment in the main series offers some very different gameplay and huge changes to the series as a whole.


    Appropriately, RE7 is set in 2017, four years after the events of Resident Evil 6.  While this game is indeed set in the same universe as the other Resident Evil games and their effects are felt on the world, RE7’s events are not directly tied to any other in the series.  This makes it a great starting point for those who are not familiar with the series.


    For more information on RE7, check out our Know Before You Go on the game!


  • Eleven Little Roosters Game Corrections for Week 2, FAQ, and Week 1 Solutions!

    10 months ago

    JoshtheFlanagan

    Hey guys! Well, first off, congrats on your first week of sleuthing! We'll be posting week 1 winners shortly, but roughly 25% of you arrived at the correct answer.


    Here's the link to guessing for Week 2 when you're ready...


    And can still find all our lovely info, including updates, at the official ELR website.



    THE GAME, WEEK 2 -- PLEASE READ FOR CORRECTIONS/PATCHES!

    Well, this week's starting off a bit rocky! Sorry about that. Here's a handful of corrections to get you back on track (consider this us "patching" the game):

    • Haywood File 10 cannot be found until public release. Why that is -- and how you find it -- are still on you to figure out... 
    • There's a slight correction to Haywood File #8. The organization mentioned should be the UN, not NATO, though most of you figured this out already.
    • There's an audio puzzle that's full of glitches! For those who know what I'm talking, just know the FIRST digit is ..--- and the last is -----  and that the letter you THINK is an L is actually a capital "i." Hooray!

     

    Answers to recent Game FAQs:

    • an organization CAN take itself out
    • an organization can be the weekly assassin more than once
    • an organization is still in play so long as ONE official member remains alive

     

    Walkthrough for Week 1

    (all Week 1 Haywood Files have been posted to our Gallery)


    FILE 1: THE FREEBIE

    Scan the QR Code on the "Ryan Haywood Mole Finder" flyer (telegraphed a bit by with The Colonel's meta-line "this one's a freebie"). Haywood file 1 also informs you how to find the remaining four files -- seven digit codes plugged in as a bit.ly link. It also suggests you check out the SS Boyz Berlin show, which happens to be one of the four 360 prologue videos... 


    FILE 2: NUMBERS IN THE CROWD

    Following the lead from File 1, the code for file 2 is hidden in the first 360 video where the Sex von Shaukel Boyz are touring in Berlin. Looking away from the immediate action, you'll eventually find 7 people in t-shirts with numbers on them. Plug them in the link in the order they appear and you'll have File 2.


    FILE 3: SUBTITLE SCRAMBLE

    There are two sets of subtitles in the episode -- one in (very bad) Norwegian with the henchmen during the opening, and the other with the Sex von Shaukel Boyz at the Rooster Room table. Look closely and you'll notice some are slightly bolder than the rest. Plug them into the link in the order the bolded letters appear to find File 3.


    FILE 4: COLOR BY NUMBER

    During the end titles, there are a handful of colored numbers that blip on as the "The Eleven Little Roosters" appears. There are 7 pairs of different colors, and one of two numbers in the pair is a 1-7. Put the paired numbers in the order of the 1-7, and you'll find File 4.


    FILE 5: EYE FOR AN EYEPATCH

    This one's hiding on the eye chart during Gavin the 3rd's eye exam. To decode it, simply pay attention to the way The Big Cock's eyepatch slides later in the episode (as pointed out by the SS Boyz). If you time the edits right -- and noting which eye of his can SEE, not which eye the patch covers -- you'll get Left, Right, Right, Left, None, Both, Left, which will give you the link to File 5.


    SOLVING FOR TARGET

    Combining info from Files 2 and 4, you're looking for a group with multiple assassins, but also with an odd number. That leaves only Mexico.


    SOLVING FOR ASSASSIN

    Combining info from Files 3 and 5, you'll need to draw out the seated positions at the table, start the file at Christoph's seat (who had the apple), and slide around in directions from File 3 to solve. The directions are given from POV of the file itself (when referring to slightly right or left as crossing the table), which settles you with Marquee Marquis.


    There's also a fantastic walkthrough video by eruptionfang on how to find everything HERE.

  • Alien 5 Chances Don't Sound Good

    10 months ago

    Eddy Writer - The Know

    While everybody's getting all jazzed about Alien Covenant -- a semi-bridge between Prometheus and Alien -- coming later this year, the status of another Alien movie project has been a bit questionable. Since it was put on hold last year, fans have been wondering what the deal is with the upcoming Alien 5, a film set to reunite Sigourney Weaver and Michael Beihn as Ripley and Hicks in a story that pretends like Alien 3 never even happened. 


    Writer/director Neill Blomkamp gave only the slightest updates about when and if we'll see Alien 5 on the big screen on Twitter this weekend. When one fan asked what the chances are of seeing the movie, the District 9 helmer said "slim." So yeah, that doesn't seem particularly hopeful. 


    While we don't know a ton about what path Alien 5 would have followed, it would have been interesting to see the films follow some of the non canon books that have been established over the last couple of decades. In particular, Steve Perry's Aliens book follow the story of what is essentially Hicks and Newt in the years following the massacre at LV-426 in Aliens. They end up on what turns out to be a secret defense colony that's trying to turn the xenomorphs into controllable weapons. After an infestation breaks out on Earth, the army decides to take their aliens to battle Earth's aliens, and things (naturally) go horribly wrong. 


    Some of it was pretty silly (like the fact that the characters weren't ACTUALLY Newt and Hicks, for legal reasons), but the idea of seeing the government's ambitions with the aliens fully play out was always interesting to me. Maybe one day we'll actually get to see Blomkamp's version of Alien 5... but honestly, given some of his most recent film endeavors and the quality of Prometheus, maybe it's best to leave the franchise for a little bit. At least until Covenant is out. 

  • Neko Atsume Movie Gets a Trailer

    10 months ago

    Ashley The Know

    Neko Atsume has been a mobile gaming phenomenon... if you choose to classify it as a proper game, that is. It launched in 2014 and grew to such rousing heights that it even got the stamp of approval from @gus Sorola. So what's a successful game about feeding stray cats to do? Become a movie, of course!


    Since that's kind of a thin premise for a film (not that it's stopping the emoji movie), the movie's narrative will focus on a depressed writer suffering writer's block, who becomes even more depressed when cats won't stick around... until he leaves food out for them.


    In case you're still wondering how this will bear up in cinematic form, there's now a teaser trailer!



    In the sequel a concerned neighbor probably comes by and finds a dead writer who's been gnawed on by a bunch of cats. Then it becomes a murder mystery about pigeons, because why not? It worked for Hatoful Boyfriend.

    Jon The Risemonger

    First episode of this season and we already got someone taking their clothes off. According to the laws of On The Spot that means we have a good season ahead of us. Let's do another one this Friday:


    CUNNING LINGUISTICS

    • Go to urbandictionary.com and find a word or phrase for guests to guess a definition for.
    • Pro tip: try and find words/phrases that are not just weird sex position descriptions.
    • No racial slurs, please.

    IMPROMPTU PITCH

    • Give me a person, a place and a genre.
    • Pro tip: don't use Rooster Teeth staff as your person (including me). Let's leave RT people in the Lazer Team extended universe where they belong.
    • Pro tip #2: don't suggest Trump. I'll ignore it.

    ABCs OF STORYTELLING

    • Come up with a 2 person scenario where the characters interact with each other a lot.
    • Be as descriptive as you want, this is a scene the guests have to play out.
    • Scenes that work best for this game have a high potential for rapid dialogue and confrontation.

    We got all this physical space to play around in now. Let's take these games to some weird places this week, yeah? xoxo The Risemonger

  • J.K. Rowling Kills New Harry Potter Sequel Rumors

    10 months ago

    Eddy Writer - The Know

    We've always known that J.K. Rowling is great at killing characters (RIP Lupin/Snape/Sirius/etc.), but now she's wielding her words against ludicrous movie rumors. After many rumors circulated late last year that another set of movies could emerge to follow the proper Harry Potter series, based on the new stage play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Rowling has now put those firmly to rest. 


    In a tweet today, Rowling wrote: "I know a lot of people are looking for reasons to be cheerful today, but there is NO TRUTH to the rumour about a movie trilogy!"


    That's probably mixed news for long-time fans of the Harry Potter series. While it means we don't get to see Ron, Harry, and Hermione's future tales on screen, it almost means we don't get to see the Cursed Child, which hasn't exactly been received well by some fans. It also means Warner Bros. won't split the play into three separate movies, giving it The Hobbit treatment. 


    Still, that tweet is simply saying that there are no plans for that to happen today. Who knows what could happen once Warner Bros. finishes up the 5-movie series of prequels launched by last year's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. And seriously, there are few things we can put past movie studios these days when it comes to crazy sequel plans. 

  • First Visual of Live-Action "Tokyo Ghoul" Touka

    micaburton

    Following the ever popular trend of turning anime into live-action films, Tokyo Ghoul is well underway in terms of production and actually looking pretty promising. The official website for the upcoming adaptation posted the first visual image of the main heroine of the story Touka Kirishima (played by 22 year old actress Fumika Shimizu).


    egGEs10.jpg


    Shimizu-- known for her long hair-- surprised fans by cutting it down to 30 centimeters to match Touka's look. Last month, the staff unveiled photos of Masataka Kubota as Ken Kaneki wearing the character's ghoul mask. The rest of the cast includes Yuu Aoi as Rize Kamishiro, EXILE's Nobuyuki Suzuki as Kōtarō Amon, and Yo Oizumi as Kureo Mado. The film-- directed by Kentarō Hagiwara-- has finished principal photography and is set to open in Japan in the Summer.

    The book was published in 1990 by the two authors and features the antics of the angel Aziraphale and the demon Crowley, who've grown comfortable and don't really want the world to end, as well as the Four Horsepersons of the Apocalypse. Toss in a son of Satan who's growing up with the wrong family, in the wrong village, his best friends, and an ability to reshape reality based, and you're in for a lot of good fun.

    Amazon agrees, and has greenlit a series of six episodes based on the work for release in 2018. Gaiman adapted the book for the screen and will serve as showrunner on the project. Of the series, he said:


    "Almost 30 years ago, Terry Pratchett and I wrote the funniest novel we could about the end of the world, populated with angels and demons… Three decades later, it’s going to make it to the screen. I can’t think of anyone we’d rather make it with than BBC Studios, and I just wish Sir Terry were alive to see it."

    Terry Pratchett, co-author on the original novel, passed away in 2015 following a battle with Alzheimer's disease.


    The show is being co-produced with Narrativia, the production company founded in 2012 by Pratchett with his daughter, Rhianna Pratchett, who recently announced she was stepping away from writing on the Tomb Raider videogame franchise.

    Previous attempts at adapting Good Omens for the screen have been made. Notably, Terry Gilliam was working on a movie in 2002, with Johnny Depp and Robin Williams rumored to be attached for the roles of Crowley and Aziraphale, respectively, but it stalled in the funding phase.

  • Halo Wars 2 Beta Goes Live with New Game Mode

    10 months ago

    Eddy Writer - The Know

    Halo Wars 2 drops in just a little over a month from today, and Microsoft's launched an open beta to whet your appetite for the new RTS game. The beta is available for gamers on both Xbox One and Windows PC, clocking in at about 10GB to download. 


    The new beta introduces one of the game's new modes, Blitz. According to the Halo Waypoint blog, Blitz mixes up the traditional RTS formula by adding a deck-building, CCG aspect to the game. In Blitz, players spend energy accumulated in the game to redeem cards, which can grant new units, bonuses, or brand new vehicles. Every leader has their own deck (which you can customize and save, if you wish), and the cards will be dealt to you at random as you proceed through each match. 


    The whole thing sounds super interesting, but there's definitely a lot of new information to take in, especially for those of us who haven't played some Halo Wars in a long time. Fortunately, 343 put up a new video tutorial for the game, and recommend playing through the tutorial yourself once you get the beta installed. 



    I'm actually really excited about Halo Wars 2 -- I played the first game obsessively back when it came out in 2009. I'll be curious to see if they've recaptured the same magic while still giving the new game some room to feel a little bit different. If this new mode's any indication, it seems like that might be the case. 


    What do you guys think of Halo Wars 2's new mode? Who's going to be playing the beta? 

  • "Voltron: Legendary Defender" Season 2 Drops Tomorrow

    Paladins everywhere rejoice! The long awaited season 2 of Netflix's exclusive Voltron: Legendary Defender is arriving tomorrow! If you're not aware of the successful phenomenon that is the reboot of the 80s TV show, here's a quick breakdown for you:


    For millennia, the evil Galra empire has plagued the universe by destroying other civilizations and enslaving various races. The only known threat strong enough against the empire's power and plans is the legendary "Defender of the Universe" Voltron, a 100 meter tall robot warrior composed of five lion mechas whose pilots are known as the Paladins. At the crux of the war that ended with the destruction of planet Altea, Voltron was separated by King Alfor of Altea in order to protect Voltron from falling into the Galran Emperor Zarkon's possession. King Alfor bonded the five lion's energies to his daughter Allura's life force and sent them across the universe to different locations until the time for the next generation of Paladins to appear and pilot Voltron arrived. Princess Allura, her retainer Coran, and the Altean Castle of Lions were hidden on planet Arus along with the Black Lion. In the present, the Galra Empire's path of conquest and search for Voltron has led them to Earth's solar system. A group of space pilots – Shiro, Keith, Lance, Pidge, and Hunk – discover the Blue Lion and immediately get swept up into the Galran War. They meet Princess Allura, become the next Paladins, and reunite the five lions to form Voltron and combat Emperor Zarkon's nefarious schemes, with the hopes of ultimately defeating the entire Galra Empire.


    The 2016 reboot has a wide-ranging fanbase and incredible reviews across the board (8.3/10 on IMDb, 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, and 99% by Google Reviewers). Are you ready for a binge watch, everyone? Because this beauty drops at 12 AM PST sharp tomorrow, January 20th. The whole season! AT ONCE!


    Who's excited? I know I sure am! For those of you who haven't seen the trailer for season 2 yet, you can watch it below. 


  • Always Open returns TOMORROW!

    10 months ago

    Hey everyone!


    I want to thank everyone SO MUCH for watching the first season of Always Open. It was very nerve-wracking to host a show for the first time, especially one that's unlike anything else we do at Rooster Teeth, and something I had no idea if people would like or not.


    The cast & crew involved in this show are some of the best people ever; they've dedicated so much time and effort into making it possible, and they kick ass at it.


    Thank you for being patient while we took a small break over the holidays. We wanted to take time to revamp things, evaluate how certain aspects of the show performed, and freshen segments up.

    Season 2 starts this week, and with the premiere, you'll start to see some changes:


    1. NEW TIME/DAY!

    Always Open will now be THURSDAYS at 11 a.m. CT for FIRST members, followed by public on YouTube 24 hours later (Fridays at 11 a.m. CT).


    2. NEW SEGMENTS!

    We're still keeping our current segments, but adding some new things here and there, including some fun games. We're always on the hunt for new, fun things to try on the show, so if you ever have ideas you think would work on the show, or a topic you'd like discussed, email AlwaysOpen@roosterteeth.com.


    3. NEW SET(ish)

    We're going to be making slight adjustments/improvements to the set. These may happen in pieces over time, not all at once. Just giving you all a heads up about that now so you're not confused if you see small changes happening.


    4. MORE GUESTS!

    We love the opportunity to have fresh faces on the show, and we'll be continuing to do so this season. You can expect to meet new people from Rooster Teeth, as well as some outside guests we think you'll love.


    I'm very excited to be continuing Always Open, and that's all thanks to you guys and your support. You guys make us excited and motivated to keep doing what we do.


    Hugs and kisses and butt squeezes,

    B
