Halo Art Project

August 31st, 2009
ScOuRgE3 stopped in with word of an art project; he's creating an image for each level of the original Halo. There are two images to go - but what's there now is pretty impressive! Check it out at DeviantART.(Louis Wu 22:49:11 UTC)

AH: TrialsHD: A Failure to Yield

August 31st, 2009

Greetings folks, today I bring you another TrialsHD tutorial guide. We're going for the "Unyielding" achievement which can be particularly tricky.

I've also created a list of the Live Action Achievements I'll be going for at PAX 2009. You can see that here. I'm still looking for one last achievement for 25GS. Feel free to post ideas here.

RT: Community Highlights

August 31st, 2009
Last week, I stopped in on the world famous Jenga Jam podcast and made a post for others to come and join in the fun. Surprisingly, there were a handful of people who accepted the invitation and then commented on what a blast it was and how they wished that had heard of it sooner. We often take for granted that people know about all the cool stuff going on in the Community site -- or that people know that we even have a Community site -- but no longer. I am going to try posting some weekly highlights for our social site so that everyone can see what they're missing. Some of these will be groups, some journal entries and others just random videos or posts.


Rooster Tooth's Resource Site -- Dimono's amazingly in-depth site that covers all RT Productions. Includes transcripts of dialogue and even painstakingly translated Lopez Spanish -- which is often better than what ends up in the episodes.

Roosterpedia -- the popular wiki based on the community site. It's like Wikipedia, only with twenty entries for the word cockibite.

Citation Needed -- Kniveskill and Fienne have started their own webcomic. It's very funny and very NSFW. Come for the jokes, stay for the inevitable drama of a loving couple slowly driven apart by working on a creative project together.

AOIO -- Awesome On Its Own is a group of RTers who collaborate on elaborate lip synch videos. Check out their rendition of Don't Stop Believin'. At over 650 members and growing, they're always looking for more performers. All you need is a video camera, an illegally downloaded mp3 and zero sense of shame.

Taco Pizza -- Time for dinner and you can't decide between a taco and pizza? Damnclem has a solution for you.

Miss Zarah's Meta painted russian doll -- Based on the RvB:Reconstruction villain. Each time you open one, you find a slightly smaller and weaker freelancer. It's like a METAphor. Get it?

Got anything good you think should be on the main page? Add it into the comments!

AH: Trials HD: Unyielding Achievement Guide

August 31st, 2009

Hey there, everyone, I hope you're having a happy Monday. Anyway, I too have an Achievement Guide for you from Trials HD. Incidentally enough, it's an alternate take at the "Unyielding" Achievement, which requires you to complete the Groundhog Returns track without fault or changing your rider's posture (not touching the thumbstick). "Particularly tricky," indeed. In any case, you now have a couple means of tackling it so it should be all the easier for you to accomplish now.

AH: Batman, Madden 10, F.E.A.R., Halo Wars Guides

August 31st, 2009
Got a bunch of community videos for you guys today. So let's get to it.

Batman: Arkham Asylum
    This one is from SIP69 and covers Rope-A-Dope-A-Dope and Night Glider.

F.E.A.R.
    The next one is the final installment of Mike's F.E.A.R. guide for No Fear and Feared.

Halo Wars
    Next up is a Halo Wars Guide from Chickenbranches. It covers Halo Academic, Playin' the Field, and Gallivant around the Galaxy.

Madden NFL 10
    Finally we have BrownMan's mega guide for Madden 10. It covers a billion Achievements.

AH: Wolfenstein: Conservationist, Gold Digger Part One

August 31st, 2009

Hey Everyone,
Today's video is part one of my new Wolfenstein series. We'll be getting all of the collectibles in the game, working toward four Achievements. As a bonus, I also show how to get the "Conservationist" Achievement.

RT: The gripping conclusion

August 31st, 2009
I present to you, dear reader, the gripping conclusion to Thursday's Comic. The apostrophe, while grammatically correct, leaves me feeling as if Thursday owns that comic. I'm here to tell you that he or she does not. Talk about self importance.

Also, just in case you aren't a LOST fan, the dudes and dudettes in today's comic (great, now Saturday is getting in on it), are all members of LOST who got DUIs, and then kicked off the show. One can only assume they are now homeless and bitter.

AH: Quick Note: Respawn Radio records live tonight.

August 31st, 2009
Just wanted to give the heads up that Episode 18 of Respawn Radio is going to be recorded live on AHTV tonight at 8 PM PT/ 11 PM ET. We'll see you there, and of course, the podcast and live recording will be posted this Tuesday just in time to prepare for the PAX festivities later in the week.
