Thanks for all the love everyone's showing the new season of "X-Ray and Vav!" And damn, but isn't Achievement Hunter rocking it over on their YouTube channel? Let's dip some animated chocolate in their peanut buttery gameplay goodness and see what happens, shall we...
So, X&V will soon finish airing the first half of the current run of 10 episodes. Then there will be a break of about 4 weeks before the second half of the season returns. But you, yes you, can make this hiatus suck less!
Go subscribe to AH's YouTube channel!! If you get them across the 750K subscribers mark BEFORE THE END OF RTX THIS WEEKEND, Rooster Teeth Animation will give you a scene from episode 6 during the hiatus, weeks ahead of schedule. Scratch that toon itch, get you your animated fix, and tide you over a little longer til we start broadcasting the new eps. YOU HAVE THE CLICKY POWER

Did you know YouTube star and close friend of mine Zach Anner will be at RTX? If you're a fan of On the Spot, you might remember his guest appearances on the Christmas and Easter episodes. He's one of the funniest guys I know so if you see him, be sure to say hi.
Well, now you know. See you at RTX!

So, we are officially less than a week out from opening RTX! Let me start off by saying how excited we are about all the amazing programming we have. Not only do we have tons of Rooster Teeth content to share, but we have so many of our friends in both the online entertainment space as well as the video game industry. Surely we have set the bar so high we could never top it next year, right? What if we top it this year?
I’m proud to announce that RTX will have a musical show on Saturday night. At no additional cost to you, you can simply walk over to the Paramount Theater on Saturday evening (with your badge...badges are necessary for entry), doors open at 7pm and the show starts promptly at 8pm. Who will be performing?
We are proud to announce the concert will begin with Video Game Orchestra and special guest Jeff Williams! Created by the producer Shota Nakama, VGO is a Boston-based touring production consisting of a rock band, orchestra and choir performing their original “rockestral” arrangements of video game music. They have recorded for the official soundtracks of Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts and numerous other blockbuster titles. We’ve been wanting to find a way to have them come down and join us at RTX for years now and we’re super excited to finally make it happen.
After the VGO performance we will welcome our good friends the Barenaked Ladies on stage. You of course know Ed Robertson as Captain Dynamic, and more recently you have surely seen our collaboration with them on the music videos for Odds Are and Say What You Want.
We couldn’t be more excited about this announcement, so please come out and join us at the Paramount Theatre on Saturday evening!! Capacity is of course limited so we will be capping the line once we know the venue will be filled. There will be a separate line for VIP badge holders but if you want to get in, you must be there by 7pm when we begin letting people into the venue.

For the moment, all slots are full. I'm working with some coworkers on opening up a few more slots. As soon as I know more, I'll post another update to let people know things are back open again.
I've finally posted this year's form to sign up for career advice at RTX this year. Like I've mentioned in the past, this isn't a job interview, but a chance to talk to a design/creative professional about stuff like what working at RT is like, about life as a designer or visual fx artist (if you're a 3D artist you're included in that), feedback on your portfolio and advice on taking your work to the next stage. This year I have three sessions of 10-15 minute appointments available on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
If you have interactive or video work you'd like for me to look at, please make sure that you bring something to show me your material on like a laptop or a tablet. I'll have my phone, but with only ten minutes there's not a lot of time to pull out my cellphone and make sure that something works. It's easier if you have whatever you want to show ready to go.
Here's the link to a form that you can fill out so that I can be better ready to talk to you too.
Looking forward to seeing you at RTX next week.

Now that we have a new site, we also have banners for all of our shows, and we want to feature your art!
If you have any artwork featuring the theme (i.e. videogames, entertainment, tech) or cast of The Know, The Patch, or Game Club, leave a link to your image in the comments. We'll change the art regularly to keep it fresh and show off all your mad skillz and credit you in the show description.
I'M EXCITED. YOU GUYS HAVE SO MANY SKILLS. I CAN'T EVEN DRAW A RECOGNIZABLE STICK FIGURE. (Lucky my paint arrows are on point.)

So as mentioned in today's AHWU, and today's Ryan the "Slide" Guy video, we're doing a video contest. If you feel so inclined, you can download a copy of the slide video HERE here and create your own remixed version of it. Go crazy, dubstep it, stubdep it, whatever you want. Just be as wacky and creative as you feel, and of course, don't use licensed music.
Once you've made your video masterpiece, send me a link to your video in the comments of this journal. Next Monday we'll pick our three favorites, mash them together, upload them, and dole out some prizes.
Third place gets an autographed AH poster of your choice, second place gets the poster and a shirt, and first place gets the poster, and a hundred dollar gift certificate to our online store.
If you have any questions about the contest, feel free to ask them in the comments. Remember, you have to get your submission in by 10am CST next Monday (Aug 3rd). So get to it!

Hey everyone -- Just wanting to write a little bit of a post talking about what we're working on, to bring you guys up to speed and let everyone know that we're doing about it.
To start; this is not an exhaustive list, however these are the key bugs & issues effecting the most amount of people. We're going to be actively focusing on these for the next few days.
Current Priority List
- Single Sign On (Sign into RoosterTeeth; You're signed in on AH, TK, FH, ect)
- Contact Us & Careers Pages not functioning properly.
- Private Groups are not displayed on one's own user profile.
- Migrations (Forum Posts, User Images, User Messages)
- Notifications directing you to another site. (and by thus, logging you out.)
- Safari Playback & Caching issues.
- Shows being displayed in UTC instead of your user-specified timezone.
- Creating a new forum post redirects you to back to the front page, instead of the page you were on.
- Notifications direct you to the front page, instead of the page the new content was on.
- Live Stream "LIVE" bar isn't noticible enough.
- Search Slugs aren't working & linking properly.
I hope to have these most, if not all of these items hit within the next week.
I also want to remind people to try and keep feedback located in the Official V2 Feedback Thread so we can keep an ear to the ground for the most offensive issues and make sure they are properly prioritized. As much as I enjoy getting 50 emails, 100 tweets, 25 reddit messages, 5 facebook (really?) messages, a ton of RT site messages and user comments about issues -- it's way easier and things get fixed a lot faster if we keep them all in one consolidated place.
<3 you guys.
In the last 72 hours, we've launched
- Notification Grouping
- Videos with quotes in title broke player
- Fixed transcoding problems causing new videos not to play on mobile.
- Fixed HLS problem on Android causing videos not not be playable on mobile
- Fixed ad playback for non-sponsors.
- A plethora of performance tweaks allowing the site to stabilize & average under 1000ms load time (our goal is to have this substantially lower once we can circle back to performance after a bugfix round)
- And several key backend & CMS related issues for staff.
