With Episode 3, we’ve got lots of important setup going on–and for the most part, I am all for it.
…Man, Episode 2 was nuts. Ya’ll know why.
The hype train has departed the station, and is moving full speed ahead.
Volume 5 of RWBY, let’s go.
Now we gotta wait for Season 16, huh?
Well, Season 15 of Red Vs Blue was certainly an interesting ride. Between Joe Nicolosi’s role as the director, the new Halo 5 game engine, and the one season story format, season 15 was…rather unique, to say the least. It did a lot, innovated in many ways, but was it good?
Have you ever wondered why we’re here?
Red vs Blue, the sci-fi/comedy/action/drama/machinima series that’s fourteen years old and still going strong, is a…unique series, for lack of a better word. Initially starting as nothing more than a few guys who thought it would be cool to create a little comedic story using Halo, it grew into a huge series that kickstarted the company known as RoosterTeeth. Spanning fourteen seasons, with a fifteenth to come this Sunday, I thought the opportunity couldn’t be better to review this massive web-series!
Because of just how long and unique this show is, I won’t be mentioning very specific details all of the time. Rather, I’ll simply gloss over the big picture of what Red Vs Blue is, and what it attempts to do. As a uniquely, surprisingly successful web series, it did a lot of things that can’t be defined very simply, and I’ll try and respect that, for better or worse!
I know that Fridays are usually for analysis, but man, RWBY Volume 4 just wrapped up, and I’ve gotta talk about this crazy, crazy ride.
Another winter season, another volume of RWBY wrapped up. After the emotional mess that was Volume 3, the story of RWBY seemed to gain so much scope than before- there was a new, unheard of villain, Maidens with supernatural powers, and a whole world yet to be explored. The world of Remnant had opened up, the plot had began to move, and the characters we knew and loved for three volumes already now had a chance to grow. So, riding off the hype of Volume 3, how did Volume 4 do?
Huh. I actually thought we’d have a hiatus. Dang, could’ve sworn I saw that somewhere, not that I’m complaining!.
Anyways, dang, this episode was pretty good. Finally got some progression to Weiss’s and RNJR’s plot lines, after three episodes of Blake and Yang focus, got some good world building, and the first true cliffhanger of the season! I have a good amount I’d like to talk about here, and so, let’s just get into it!
Chapter 5 of Volume 4 is out, and man, it was certainly an interesting chapter to say the least. Lots of small, yet very interesting details were spread throughout the episode, that I think were worth talking about. It wasn’t exactly a bombshell of an episode, but what it lacked in concrete actions and revelations, it made up for in world-building information and character interaction. Without further ado, let’s get into the episode, and what we can stand to learn from it!
Alright, back again with a chapter that doesn’t progress the plot too much, but gives us a very interesting update on the blonde bombshell, some light as to why that farmer kid is in RWBY at all, and an intro to a character we’ve been waiting YEARS to see. Volume 4 is continuing to be rather intriguing, but without further ado, let’s get to it!
