      Hi Jack! I'm going to vegas for my 30th with 13 friends on the 19th & was going to play the craps tables. What kind of betting style would you recommend? Ive learnt the game & understand the bets. Thx

      Answered: Feb 2, 2016

      Keep it simple. I typically bet the PASS line (with ODDS, always always ALWAYS take ODDS) and then buy the 6 and 8 for $12 each. If either of them hit twice, on the third time I press it up to $24, if they hit twice more, press to $48...etc. Best of luck!

    • I'm so sorry. (Top 10)

      jack I Like Lego

      We just posted our top 10 videos as decided by Achievement Hunter and I am so sorry. Here is the list that was based on votes across everyone in the AH office (all 12 of us, sorry Shifty Larry).


      1. Destiny: The Taken King

      2. Halo 5: Guardians

      3. Battlefront

      4. Batman: Arkham Knight

      5. Fallout 4

      6. Tales from the Borderlands

      7. Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege

      8. Rocket League

      9. Majora's Mask 3D

      10. Assassin's Creed Syndicate


      Here is my top 10:


      1. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate

      2. Destiny: The Taken King

      3. Rocket League

      4. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege

      5. Star Wars: Battlefront

      6. Just Cause 3

      7. Fallout Shelter

      8. Batman: Arkham Knight

      9. Cities: Skylines

      10. #IDARB


      1. Assassin's Creed Syndicate

      A huge return to form for the Assassin's Creed series. Unity was a misstep in an otherwise solid franchise and Syndicate did a lot of repair work. The Frye twins were a ton of fun to play and the story's divide between characters made for an interesting plot device. I also really dug the Jack the Ripper DLC that came out later in the year, a cool twist on gameplay mechanics.


      2. Destiny: The Taken King

      A lot of people gave us shit for choosing "DLC" on our top 5... this DLC made Destiny FUN again. It was such a huge change that we felt it was worth a nomination. I probably have more hours in Destiny in 2015 than any other game on my list, King's Fall is a fantastic raid and altering the light levels and other stats made this game shine in 2015.


      3. Rocket League

      For all the people who hate sports games, this one is for you. Rocket League was a huge surprise that is easy to pick up and a challenge to master. Once you get your first aerial goal, you'll be hooked for life. Also, the AH flag in the game doesn't hurt!


      4. Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege

      You couldn't design a game for Achievement Hunter better than this one. The differences in classes and support necessary as a team make for a fantastic title that I'm happy to have in my top 5. When we are looking for a game to play for fun, this one rises up to the top pretty fast.


      5. Star Wars: Battlefront

      I'm a huge fan of Star Wars and I have fond memories of the older Battlefront titles. Playing Battlefront with the guys here was some of the most fun we've had all year. Geoff flying around as Boba Fett will always make me laugh.


      6. Just Cause 3

      The most chaotic parts of Grand Theft Auto mixed with the nuttiness of Saint's Row salted with some of the best/worst voice acting ever makes for an explosive and hilarious game. Seeing what we could do with the grapple cables killed hours in our office.


      7. Fallout Shelter

      The best mobile game of the year. Everyone was hooked on it for a solid two weeks in here. I wish there was some kind of connection to Fallout 4 with it though.


      8. Batman: Arkham Knight

      A fitting end for the Arkham series. It did feel a little repetitive at times, but it makes up for it in the final cinematic gameplay of the game.


      9. Cities: Skylines

      This is what the reboot of Simcity should have been. A proper world building game with tons of additional stuff and mods that continue to expand the worlds you can create.


      10. #IDARB

      ANOTHER SPORTS GAME? This one came out of nowhere and was a blast. During Let's Play Live we played this in front of a sold out audience that was messing with us the entire time, it was fantastic.


      Now then, let me talk about some of the ones that didn't make my list.


      Halo 5: Guardians

      I hate to admit, but I haven't been a big fan of Halo since Halo 3. I have no idea what the hell is going on any more in that world. Now Cortana is crazy and wants to kill everyone? Why is Buck back? Who are all these people?


      The Witcher 3

      Unfortunately with our line of work, it can be difficult to get in to longer games like Witcher. Open ended RPGs like this get lost just due to the number of hours you have to put in to them. I've heard amazing things though.


      Fallout 4

      Same deal as Witcher 3, I played it up until the first quest where you had to get in to the Corvette factory and then never went back.


      Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain

      I'll be honest, I haven't played a Metal Gear game since Metal Gear Solid on the original Playstation. I played to get to the open world area of MGS:TPP and was confused the entire way. It's cinematic and pretty, but I have no idea what the hell is going on.


      There are a ton more that probably should be on there, but I just wanted to post a journal about my decisions and my thoughts on 2015 gaming. Thanks for reading, I'm sure you will all 100% agree with me in the comments. Right? ...right?

    • Extra Life Recap version 0.1

      Aloha folks,

      We're in the middle of filming all kinds of stuff today, but I wanted to let you know something amazing. Our goal for Extra Life this year was $500,000.

      After the Rooster Teeth donation, our poster donation, and donations from our incredible community, as of 3:00pm CST, November 9th, 2015, we have raised $561,227 in total for the Rooster Teeth Extra Life team.

      Holy. Crap.

      I owe you guys a proper write-up, and I promise you'll get one. If you won stuff on the stream, I'll be emailing/dm'ing you soon. Love you.

      I love this community.

    • Extra Life Info!

      1 year ago

      jack I Like Lego

      Aloha folks,

      I'm here to hopefully answer any nagging questions you have about this weekend's Extra Life stream. First up, I hope you got a chance to check out this year's exclusive poster. It's amazing. It'll be on sale in parallel with the stream, from 8am Central on Saturday, November 7th until 8am Central on Sunday, November 8th. The posters will be $10 and only available in the International Store. So if you currently use the European or Australian stores, you'll have to swap over to the International to grab it. We've also got a goal to sell 25,000 of these, beating out last year's poster sales by just over a thousand. I know you guys can do it!

      10070-1446766419785-promo_beardillo.jpg

      Next up, the stream itself! Our home will be right here: http://roosterteeth.com/extralife and if you are watching on a computer, you should use that link. If you are watching on the Rooster Teeth App, it'll work like any other live streams! We're broadcasting on YouTube Gaming this year. Hooray games!

      As far as stretch goals this year... there are going to be a few of them. You've already heard that I've put my beard up for grabs at $300,000 raised on the stream... I think you can get us there. But along the way, we have some other great goals planned. Everybody's favorite Jeremy has offered up his services to recreate his EPIC RAP BATTLES OF ROOSTER TEETH with the actual people doing their own voices. That's right. For example, if you want to see The Mad King Ryan face off against Podcast King Gus, we're looking to get our donations up to $250,000. How about Sarge vs. Church? Let's get to $225,000... but what about the Achievement Hunter squad? That one will be unlocked at $275,000. This is happening... the real people behind the voices will step behind the mics.

      And what about our buddy Matt Bragg? We're tired of him looking like homeless Jesus, so we're going to shave his head. I'm thinking right around $100,000 for this one.

      We've got a few more surprises in store for stretch goals, don't worry about that. Oh, also, if you donate $1,337 or more, we spin the WHEEL OF DESTINY and do whatever it lands on. It could be anything from do 20 push ups to play a round of Just Dance... basically whoever is on at that time will be in for some kind of punishment.

      You might be thinking, 'is it too late to join the Rooster Teeth Extra-Life team?' of course it isn't! You are welcome to join us at the Extra-Life site right here: http://www.extra-life.org/team/roosterteeth Also, if you aren't able to donate for whatever reason, feel free to spread the word of what we are doing! Your voice can carry a long way on the internet. Tell your friends, tell your family, tell John Cena!

      I'll try to respond to as many questions below, but I personally want to thank everyone who has supported our Extra Life streams over the past years and I can't wait to get this one rolling. This is the best community on the planet and you never cease to amaze me.

      With love,

      -Jack
