RT: MNF

September 30th, 2006
If you're watching the Saints - Falcons game tonight, keep an eye out for an NBA Live '07 commercial we worked on. Word on the street is that it will be shown during the 2nd commercial break after the game starts. You'll recognize it immediately as our work....

RT: Group Hug

September 30th, 2006
This weekend we did something we rarely do as an office. We all saw a movie together. I can't remember the last time we went as a group to do something, and it took the heartwarming saga that was Jackass 2 to bring us together. Thanks Jackass, you taught...

RT: Halo Wars

September 30th, 2006
I just read that at the X06 event Microsoft has announced that they are going to be releasing a real time strategy game based on the Halo universe. Ensemble Studios is currently developing Halo Wars for the Xbox 360. This isn't exactly Rooster Teeth news,...

RT: Do unto others…

September 30th, 2006
Well,
Things have escalated since Tuesday's comic. It was obvious that, assuming Gus survived, there would be retaliation. However, the speed at which things spiraled out of control was staggering. I actually hope that there isn't a Jackass 3, as i'm pretty...

RT: Season Five Is Alive

September 30th, 2006
Everyone here at RoosterTeeth is very proud to announce the start of Red vs Blue Season 5. At least, I think everyone else is proud. They're all at home sleeping while I'm at the office posting this. I guess their ability to sleep peacefully...

RT: Enough with the Jackass already

September 30th, 2006
Today marks the final installment in our Jackass odyssey. Check below to see how things turned out, and when you are done (assuming you are a sponsor) check out our first epsiode of Season 5. If you aren't, it will be available on Monday to the general public....

H:P has HW

September 30th, 2006
Gawd, quick one I forgot from days ago, my bad. Funkmon pointed out on Wednesday night that Halo: Portable had posted mobile-ready versions of the Halo Wars trailer... I MEANT to post it, but spaced. If you need a copy for your PSP/Pocket PC/iPod, go by now! And that's all from me for a while, folks...(Louis Wu 14:09:51 UTC)

Dibs.

September 30th, 2006
Red vs Blue Season 5 has kicked off - Episode 78, 'You Can't Park Here', is now out for sponsors, non-sponsors should be able to download it on Monday. Sometimes, when a series gets older, it gets tireder... no such worries here. I LOVED this ep. Teh Funni is everywhere. Looks like KP was first with this, over at Bungie.net. Will wonders never cease?(Louis Wu 12:06:08 UTC)

On the Horizon

September 30th, 2006
GameDaily has written up a review of Halo's upcoming projects, and how they might all fit together. A bit too much speculation for my taste, but hey - it's the internet, right?(Louis Wu 12:05:33 UTC)

Mesmerize

September 30th, 2006
Killer 047 announced a huge (30 minutes, more than 400 mb in hi-res format) tricking montage film. I haven't had time to watch it (or download it, even)... but the forum post was pretty fancy. If you've got a large pipe, and a lot of time... check this out!(Louis Wu 11:53:20 UTC)

More Eyeballs

September 30th, 2006
MediaPost takes a look at the newly announced Wingnut Interactive ventures from the viewpoint that movies are making less money than they used to, and moviemakers are looking to expand their audiences in other ways. Interesting take.(Louis Wu 11:49:44 UTC)

Dolbex puts his thinking cap on

September 30th, 2006
Some quick links your way, before this day gets out of hand here: Dolbex posted a long rant about how Bungie might be spread too thin at this point on his blog - and mentioned it on our forum. (The biggest assumption in his article that should be questioned is 'Bungie is the only one in charge of Halo IP at this point' - ask that, and a lot of his fears go away. Maybe replaced by new ones - but that's a DIFFERENT question...) He also pointed out a bizarre quote mentioned in an EvilAvatar post - but I'm thinking that the MS exec quoted was referring to the popularity of RTSs in Germany, more than anything else. Go read!(Louis Wu 11:47:13 UTC)

Red vs. Blue Season 5

September 30th, 2006
The guys over at Rooster Teeth have released the much anticipated Season Five of the Red vs. Blue series. It's available for sponsors now, everyone else will have to wait until the weekend's over to grab it. w00t!

Less ado, more do:

Got What It Takes To Be Wide?

September 30th, 2006

Wideload Games, makers of Stubbs the Zombie and currently working on an unspecified number of unspecified projects for unspecified platforms in their sweet Chicago digs, is looking for a Lead Engineer:

Sure, there are other options. You could move to California and get a job squeezing out WWII shooters for some big company. Bet nobody's thought of that before. Sounds almost as satisfying as it is original. Perhaps someday you'll be assigned to work on an ersatz clone of a Wideload game. It'll be almost like working here, except you'll be following a trail instead of blazing it. Kind of like being a courtroom stenographer, writing other people's words instead of your own. If that sounds boring to you, don't worry; at any moment, you could perish in one of those colossal earthquakes that Chicagoans never have to worry about. Talk about excitement!

Wideload asks that if you don't want to apply yourself, but know someone else who'd be right for the job, get in touch with Wideload. Thanks to Matt Soell for the heads-up.

The Bungie Weekly Update has been posted - summary of the rather large news out of Barcelona this week, plus a local (well, local for Bungie) spin, a cool cake, and zune photos. (What?) Yeah, go read. If you are scared of Bungie.net, there's always our Weekly Update Archive.(Louis Wu 23:43:51 UTC)

Bungie Weekly Update

September 29th, 2006
Frankie and Sketchfactor are still off cruising the nude beaches ("Toptional") of Barcelona, but in their stead I bring you cake. After you're done with that though, there's word from Frankie, some community news and a little tease from a sly Microsoft source of ours.
