This week, the devilishly clever minds at Rooster Teeth have left us dangling from last week’s cliffhanger.
Instead of posting the new chapter of their latest machinima series “Red vs. Blue: Reconstruction,” they offer this week one of their famously funny “RvB” public service announcements. You can check it out at www.roosterteeth.com.
Apparently, we’ll just have wait a little longer to find out what happened to Caboose, the Meta, Delta and all the little creepy whispering AIs after all the action in Chapter 8,
The really great aspect about this particular PSA is that it features Grif, Simmons and Sarge, three of the Red Team guys who haven’t gotten much face time in “RvB:re.” However, from the looks of last week’s installment, we may be seeing more of the Reds.
The PSA basically has Simmons introducing Sarge to the concept of video game achievements. Naturally, Grif scoffs at the notion of achievement of any kind, so you can image the sarcasm (some of it foul-mouthed) involved here.
Not only does it include the instant-classic one-liner “We can’t do porn. This is the Internet. Show some class,” the video also has Caboose causing his usual humorous chaos.
But it also functions as a promotional tool for Rooster Teeth’s new Web site AchievementHunter.com, which chronicles and gives news into video game achievements. It’s extremely geeky over there, but if you’re into achievements, you’ll probably dig it.
Watch out for the “case of the Mondays,” the Easter egg and the final (or crowning, if you will) achievement in the video.
