We want to deliver the best possible experience for watching content on our website and app. I need your help to make that happen! I'm looking for FIRST and non-FIRST members to do a quick user interview with me on google hangouts. I just want to get a feel for what's working, what needs improvement, what features you'd like to see, and get some general feedback from the community. The focus will be on the video platform, but we'll do the same for the community side soon. Even if you're not interested in participating in an interview, I'd still love to hear from you. If you'd take a moment to fill out this quick survey I'll get things set up. Thanks! >https://goo.gl/forms/tvJi4BogwVNrJ28B2

Episode- 71 Deadpool VS Pinkie Pie
And so we come to the season 3 finale, the end of one of the most difficult and rewarding years of Death Battle thus far. To celebrate such a grand occasion, we chose to end the terror that was 2016 on an epic match-up between fan-favorite Deadpool and a… perky pink pony?
Yeah, that announcement turned some quizzical heads and probably gave someone an aneurysm. It’s a weird idea, but believe it or, it was a rather popular request. Our previous Deadpool episode was easily one of the most popular Death Battles we ever made. Usually when a character appears in Death Battle for the first time the number of requests for other match-ups with that character seriously drop, but Deadpool was a different story. The number of requests for a Deadpool reprisal was higher than ever before! We knew we would bring him back eventually, but it was a pretty difficult task figuring out which match-up would be a good fit.
Until we stumbled across a truckload of posts requesting this mad idea.
Though to be honest, throughout most of 2016 we never planned on making this episode. Originally, the season 3 finale was planned to be Lara Croft VS Nathan Drake. As you might recall, the 3D animation schedule was lengthened mid-way through the season, so Lara VS Nathan had to be pushed back to the season 4 premiere, and we figured we’d swap it with what was originally planned to be said premiere. We had already talked about bringing Deadpool back in early 2017, though we didn’t have a match-up picked out until after deciding to bring the merc with a mouth into this finale.
And so we made one of the silliest episodes ever!
Back when Nick wrote Deadpool VS Deathstroke, we had to cut some of his ideas because they wouldn’t fit the more serious tone Deathstroke was bringing to the fight. Such as Deadpool reaching out of the YouTube player, grabbing the Like/Dislike bar, and wielding it like a sword.
One of the reasons Pinkie Pie seemed like an obvious choice for his opponent was because shenanigans like this would totally fit this fight, turning the battle into a brawl of the fourth-wall-breakers! We had never done anything like that with Death Battle before, and it’s always a joy for us to craft something new out of the familiar series. Though it is pretty ironic that for our first ever actually planned season finale we wound up with something as crazy as this! (Goku VS Superman and Pokemon VS Digimon were dubbed season finales post-production because we weren’t in seasonal cycles at the time.)
That wraps up the topic Season 3: Growing Pains! On Thursday, I’ll begin covering Season 4… another important year with some important changes as we finally made the move to Rooster Teeth’s headquarters in Austin, Texas. I’ve been looking forward to talking about the 2017 episodes for another reason, too; since it’s more recent, I’ve got a much better memory about it! Ha! Point being, I’ll have some interesting stories to tell about Season 4’s ups and downs, and I hope you’ll join me on the adventure.
See you Thursday!

You know, that one game that Bungie made after Halo...shut up it makes sense to us dammit!
This Friday, September 21st at 7pm CT we enter the Iron Banana...err Banner in Destiny 2! Going to try and muster through some of the craziness that is the multiplayer push of Crucible...we got nothing because this is going to be hell in a hand basket.
Join us if you'd like! We plan on chatting on the server and at least hosting a group on Xbox. We have some PC players who may be up for it as well!?

This community is without a doubt the best in the world and I'm so happy to be apart of it. Too everyone that came to RTX London and all of the guardians, cast and crew, I thank you. It's corny and it's a tad too sappy but you all gave me the time of my life in London and I can never repay y'all for taking me in and making me feel at home and hopefully I will see you all next year.

There is no blog this week.
The two I'm working on need time and/or physical resources I don't have access to at the moment.
BUT, I do have something I can show you that will be part of a future blog. And I'm only showing it off to the site. You guys are special. (It's also unlisted so you will have to sign in to youtube. If you don't have an account and want to see it, let me know.)
It's a work in progress.
I hope you enjoy this sneak peak at a little tour I want to take you on.

Last night I tried out my first Twitch stream. It wasn't good... but I loved it.
Still working a lot of things out and trying to get them more customized but I like where this is headed. Granted, I am not really good at video games but I am choosing to embrace the other side of it all.
Frankly, my favorite streamers/content creators are those that are having the most fun while they play their game of choice. We'll see how this goes... now I just need to figure out what to play.

It was just incredible!!!
As a fan of Rooster Teeth it really was amazing to attend this event 2 years in a row as an Exhibitor. We had the best weekend chatting to you all and seeing some amazing Cosplay wandering around. What an amazing community we have!!
I wanted to say a HUGE thank you to the attendees, the Guardians, the staff... everyone who visited the booth to have a chat or purchase something from us.
We would love to see any pictures of you guys and your weapons, Aku Aku masks, or your Necklaces etc. Wanna see how they are doing in their new homes!
So please tweet them to @Ziekaru or me @KristanEmery
Thank you all again for making our RTX so special!
Love to you all!
