    Wait so if Burnie was in full costume for the last shoot of 11 little roosters doesn't that imply that he probably lasts until the end of the show?

      Not necessarily. Most productions like ELR don't film in order, the film based on when talent is available.

    I know I say this every vlog (and I'm sure Burnie is getting tired of it) but I absolutely love these vlogs. I'm enamored with the behind the scenes working of RT (and the production life in general - hence my career shift towards pre/post production) and getting to know/see everything that most RT fans don't see/care about on a daily/weekly basis. I absolutely love hearing Burnie talk about his experiences and how the company is doing great things and continuing to grow every week, and watching everyone (that we don't normally see) work behind the scenes helping the company grow. My goal is to be a RT employee and work behind the scenes with talented people growing the company. I look forward to the next vlog!

    Actually, last time I checked, the weirdest elevator ride would be between two executives from Square and Disney that ended up conceiving Kingdom Hearts, but being in the same elevator with that kind of A-List is damn awesome too.

    Hey Burnie!  Love the vlogs, they are one of my favorite pieces of exclusive content :)


    Wanted to give a bit of feedback on the podcast anniversary episode... Perhaps that wasn't the best time to have a guest on the show.  Jeff was kind of sidelined for most of the time as you guys were talking about the history of the podcast, and he felt like a kind of token.  I understand that's probably just how the scheduling worked out, but it didn't feel like the right time to have a guest.

    Ezra and Sophie have been on camera. Now, it's required that they play a character in an RT production like Shorts or be a guest on Let's Play (AH, FH, GA[PartyUp]). Required! Everyone seen in vlogs or live streams must also appear in another production. It's the rules, man. (... if not, it should be. Everyone in the elevator, too. Anna's overdue for an appearance.)

    Well you can tell Burnie is still very much an Xbox guy (not that it matters) as he didn't seem to recognize the guy Kojima was talking to in the elevator video.  Shawn Layden is kind of a big deal in the Playstation ecosystem haha.  Just goes to show that no matter how big you are there is always someone that doesn't know you from a hole in the wall.

    Obscure observation aside, a fun vlog as always.

    This is kinda bitter-sweet for me. It's been great to be along for the ride all these years, and they always have their down-to-earth personalities, but Roosterteeth is really starting to become unrelatable to me. I mean, look at the kind of people they hang out with and the large scale projects they are involved in now. It used to be a small company, with funny, average-joes that just put their heart and souls into their content. Now, they are the same wonderful people, but it is spread out and so large that one person could not possible keep up with it all, let alone the behind-the-scenes stuff. Don't get me wrong, I'm unbelievably happy for them. It's just kinda sad too.

      I'm exactly sure what you point is here? You're sad that the company has grown is successful? Their content is just the same as used to be, but on a migher higher production level which is something that is only beneficial.


      Unrelatable in what sense, because they now get the opportunity to go to awards shows and meet people in the video game industry?


      Complaining that you have more content to watch than you can handle is a pretty false complaint imo.

      I think they've done a great job of realizing when they were getting too big for them to manage on their own, and have made smart choices to work with folks who specialize in management of these kinds of things.  It's let them expand both their content and their creative workforce, bringing us more stuff that's both unique and yet has that familiar RT touch.

      Every time I see a comment from this Phatnaru kid it's just him whining and crying about whatever was in the video. Kid doesn't know how to enjoy anything. But hey, at he's least he's paying.

      Wow, wtf! I state something that I clearly label as MY opinion NOT YOURS, AND I state that I am happy for them, but that it is a little bitter-sweet for me, THEN I explain why and I STILL get shit on. 


      I was stating that I was sad that I couldn't keep up with everything anymore and you people are so ready to jump down someone's throat that you took it as me complaining about what they are doing.


      @8bitdee

      You say that everytime, I comment it is me complaining. If you genuinely saw all my comments, then you would know that that is not true. Why is it, that the only comments I see from YOU are you countering someone else's opinion.? The only reason my critical comments stick out to you is because you scan the comment section to find opinions and tell people they are wrong. Why is it so important to you to tell others that they are wrong?


      EDIT: Also, I don't want to hear some patronizing comment about "at least he pays to watch" when I have been supporting them since the beginning, as opposed to someone who only started watching and supporting them a few years ago. Before I even made my RT account and started supporting them over 5 years ago, I've been following their content on since RvB released back in 2003!
