The guys over at Rooster Teeth Productions have been making Red vs Blue for ten years now. It is one of the longest running internet series today, has garnered millions of fans worldwide and has received many awards including “Best Internet Series” from the IAWTV Awards in 2011. In those ten years, Roosterteeth.com has gone from being a forum site to go to watch and discuss the latest episode to being it’s own community site will over one million site members. Well, a few months ago, a survey was released by the creators for their community members to fill out. The survey consisted of questions regarding the communities favorite moments from seasons one through nine of the series. And now those votes have been tabulated and the winners have been brought together to give to you: The Best Red vs Blue DVD Ever. Of All Time.
I really enjoyed this best of collection and the way it was presented. When you see other “best of” clip shows, its usually hosted by one of the stars of the show and they would usually say things like, “Well, if you think that little mishap was funny, than take a look at all the other times this has happened to one of us!” Well, the Rooster Teeth guys did things a little different. Since this collection was put together by the votes of the community, this “best of” collection is brought to us in the way of an awards show.
Yeah, an awards show, complete with a red carpet pre-show hosted by nobodies favorite American Grifball League of America commissioner….The Commissioner.
The first ever Red vs Blue Awards show was hosted by the unofficial leader of the Blue Army, Private Leonard Church, and offered lots of bickering, heckling, and all out shouting matches from the audience. Along with seeing Church at the podium, we also got to see show favorites Tucker, Sarge, Simmons, Grif, Donut, Wash, Tex, Andy the Bomb, Sister, Junior, and of course, Caboose, come up and announce winners and categories. Some of the categories included are: Best Moments from seasons one through nine, favorite character lines, best episodes from seasons one through nine, favorite Grifball miniseries, favorite miniseries, and many others.
I’ve gotta say, it was really nice reliving all of these classic moments from Red vs Blue. I’ve been a fan of the series for a very long time and it’s really cool seeing the creators show their appreciation to their fans by letting them choose their favorite moments from the series.
Also, the awards show aspect was a nice touch, because we all know Donut’s been practicing his Oscar speech for years now, and the guys did it to a tee. As various characters would take the stage to announce categories, there would be the occasional bad joke, not to mention the Red vs Blue brand of humor that was heckling from the Reds when a Blue was on stage, or Sister accusing Wash of being a cop when he was on stage.
My only problem with the show, is that I think Donut should have been the host instead of Church. I can see why Church was hosting seeing as that he gets angry and blows up on people easily, which is not what you want a host to do. But Donut would have been better in my opinion because he would have taken what a normal awards show host does to an all new level. Probably would’ve included a song and dance number which would have been hilarious to see.
Other than that, The Best Red vs Blue DVD Ever. Of All Time was an absolute pleasure to watch, and we here at OMBG give it two thumbs up!
Sup guys? Here’s what we got this week in video game land!
First, another trailer for Assassin’s Creed 3. This time, we get a little history lesson about the famous Boston Tea Party. And apparently, our protagonist, Connor, plays part in the first form of defiance from the Colonist to King George in dumping the outrageously taxed tea into the Boston Harbor. Check out the trailer below.
In other Assassin’s Creed news, Ubisoft has announced that they will be releasing an Assassin’s Creed: Ezio Trilogy. Which is exactly what it sounds like. There will be a collection of AC games that will be the Ezio Trilogy, so it will include: Assassin’s Creed 2, Brotherhood, and Revelations. The only thing is, it’s only going to be released for the Playstation 3. I’m a little irritated by that. I already own the Ezio Trilogy myself, but for those who don’t and are 360 gamers like myself, that’s a bit of a jip. But what can you do? The Ezio Trilogy will be released for the PS3 on November 13th.
BioWare has also jumped on board with releasing collections of their successful franchises. They have just announced that they will be releasing a Mass Effect Collection. Which will include Mass Effect 1, 2, and 3. This will mark the first time that the first Mass Effect being available to play on the PC and PS3. But while the PC and 360 versions of the trilogy will be released on November 6th, the PS3 versions has yet to be given a release date.
Finally, in Halo 4 news, the Flood will be making a return in Halo 4. As of right now, not in the campaign, but in a multiplayer type. There will be a new multiplayer game in Halo 4 simply called, The Flood. So we will see what happens there. That’s pretty exciting if you ask me.
Well, thats all for now. See ya next time!

Sup guys? This past Sunday was the WWE’s “Party of the Summer” Pay Per View event, Summerslam. Now, the WWE has a pay per view event every month, but there have always been 3 pay per views that are benchmarks for the professional wrestling company. Those three are The Royal Rumble, Summerslam, and of course, Wrestlemania. Now, for these events, the WWE basically take over the venue where the event is being held and have a weekend long convention they call WWE Fan Axxes. During this event, there are meet a greets with superstars, chances to commentate on matches with current and legendary WWE commentators, and also some press events. Well, this past weekend there was a press event held to reveal the roster for this years video game, WWE 13. And here it is!
Man, I’m really digging this roster. I was lucky enough to grow up watching wrestling during the 90s. And for anyone that watched during that time knows about the Monday Night Wars with WCW and more importantly, that was the beginning of the Attitude Era. I’ve gotta say, it’s gonna be really cool getting to play as the superstars of the Attitude Era and to see current superstars as they looked during that time. I. E. Triple H as he currently is, Triple H during the original DX days, and Triple H when he went by Hunter Hearst Helmsley. And also knowing that the “Three Faces of Foley” will all be playable. For those who were, and still are a fan of Mick Foley will appreciate that. Think about it, you could have a 6 man tag match between Hunter Hearst Helmsley, DX Triple H, and current Triple H against Mankind, Dude Love, and Cactus Jack. How cool would that be? And by the looks of it, you will be able to recreate famous moments from matches that took place during the Attitude Era. As you could see from the trailer, you will be reliving the moment when The Undertaker threw Mankind off of the top of the Hell in a Cell into the announcer’s table below. If you were a fan of wrestling, you will never get that moment out of you head for as long as you live.
I personally can’t wait for WWE 13. WWE 12 was a great title and THQ implemented a lot of new gameplay mechanics to make the game feel as close to real life as possible and it looks like they are improving on those mechanics.
WWE 13 comes out October 30, 2012 for Wii, PS3, and XBox 360.
What’s up guys? I know it’s been a while. Did you miss me? No? Damn.
Anyway. Here’s a new trailer for Assassin’s Creed 3 that features the new Naval warfare aspect of the game. This is the first time in the AC franchise that you will be able to take part in this type of battle. And with Ubisoft developing it’s new AnvilNext game engine specifically for Assassin’s Creed 3, it’s looking to be a pretty cool new addition to what looks to be an incredible game. Check it out for yourself!
Got a new trailer for Assassin’s Creed 3 for ya! This new trailer shows off and explains Ubisoft’s new game engine they built specifically for Assassin’s Creed 3 and Conner himself. A game engine they are calling, “AnvilNext.” Check it out for yourselves!
Pretty cool stuff. 2,000 characters on screen at one time. 1,000 movements meant specifically for Conner. And we got to see Conner without his hood on. The AnvilNext game engine is looking to be pretty damn cool. What do you guys think? Let me know!
Got some Darksiders 2 trailers for you. The first one is a new trailer for the game itself and the second is a trailer that talks about some new aspects to the game narrated by some of it’s developers. Enjoy!
So what did you think? Darksiders 2 is really looking to be a great sequel to the big surprise hit that the first Darksiders was. It comes out on PS3, XBox 360 and PC on August 14, 2012 and will be a Wii U launch title.
