Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
In 2003, the crew behind a website known as drunkgamers.com decided to use a bunch of X-Boxes as well as copies of Halo to create a few Internet videos based on an real discussion had between them over what animal did Halo's jeep really look like. Meant to be at max eight videos long, Red Vs Blue turned into one of the hottest Internet properties today with a primary series of 100 episodes at it's core. The still-ongoing story has not only made fans out of regular computer jockeys world wide but Halo's creators as well, to the point of including Red Vs Blue in the Legendary edition of Halo 3.
The multiple RvB series are set in a less-serious-then-normal version of the Halo-verse, where two armor-bearing armies known simply as the Reds and the Blues have been butting heads for at least since "Master Chief blew up the whole Covenant Armada". The 100 regular episodes focus on the Red and Blue teams stationed at the Blood Gulch box-canyon, both being for the most part unskilled and uncaring about carrying on the war-effort against each other. The two teams soon find themselves having to deal with AI-boosted mercenaries, ghosts, time travel, multiple personalities, unkillable soldiers, a team-killing tank, and rapist aliens.
Teaming up with Microsoft, Rooster Teeth (RvB's creators) made two special, more action/drama-based RvB mini-series for the X-Box Marketplace. The first, Out Of Mind, centers on Tex, a soldier-for-hire who's counted as one of the Blood Gulch Blues. Taking place between Season 4 and 5 of the original series, the five-episode story follows Tex's attempts to track down a rogue AI called Omega, an AI that used to be housed within her armor and who now plans to take over the universe. The second mini-series, Recovery One, occurs some time after both the end of OoM and the original series. It follows another merc named Washington who acts as a AI-retrieval unit for Project Freelancer, the group responsible for not only him but Tex and other AI-bonded soldiers in the RvB-verse.
Spinning off of Recovery One is Reconstruction, a new series that's more or less RvB: Season 6. The story picks up over a year after the original series' ending, with the Blood Gulch teams having gone off their separate ways. They're soon brought back together for the most part though when Recovery One's Washington recruits them to help him stop a new threat to the universe, one born from Project Freelancer.
