It’s that time of year again! At the end of last year’s review of Volume 2, I was feeling slightly more confident about the future of RWBY, but was that confidence well-placed? Did Volume 3 continue to improve or did it crash and burn? Well, enough babbling. Let’s just get right to it and break down the good and the bad of RWBY Volume 3! Continue reading

Last year, I wrote a review on the first volume of RWBY, the online animated smash hit of RoosterTeeth and the creation of the late, great Monty Oum. I had always planned to review the second volume once it was complete and with Volume 3 already several episodes in, I figured it was now or never. Let’s get things started and review the good and bad of RWBY Volume 2. Continue reading

Earlier this week, the latest season of Roosterteeth’s hit machinima Red vs. Blue ended, finishing up the Chorus Trilogy (which consisted of Season’s 11, 12 and 13). Overall, I certainly enjoyed it. After ten seasons of the Freelancer story arc, I was a little nervous about how the series could continue. Most people would probably say that it would’ve been wise to end it before it lost steam and became a shadow of its former self, but I feel it managed to avoid that, thanks to the decision to tell a new story with these familiar characters and the show getting a new lead writer in Miles Luna.

A Tribute to Monty Oum

(originally posted February 6th 2015)

Earlier this week on February 1st, infamous online animator Monty Oum tragically passed away. His death was sudden and shocking; even as I write this, I still find it hard to believe that he’s gone. I never met him but it’s clear that he touched a lot of people; the fact that even complete strangers on the Internet mourn his passing shows how much of an impact he left on his family, friends, co-workers, fans and anyone who was familiar with his work. I’ve been seeing a lot of tributes to him over the last few days (mostly artwork) so I thought that I should probably do something too. So, I hope you’ll all join me as I reminisce over some of Monty’s past work. And if you’ve never seen his stuff before, prepare to be surprised. Continue reading
