Red vs Blue: Reconstruction episode one is go

Having teased the new series early last month, Rooster Teeth has finally launched the new offshoot of Red vs Blue, Reconstruction. The first episode, entitled "Reconstructed," is now available, with future episodes planned every Monday. The first episode eschews the traditional humor found in the Red vs Blue series in favor of some rather extensive exposition. From the looks of things though, we're expecting a return to form in episode two. Sharp-eyed viewers will notice that the video takes a dip into the Halo 2 engine near the end of the episode, and several characters from original series are mentioned as well. Whatever happens, you can bet we'll be keeping an eye out for episode two next week.

Achievements, a double-edged sword

You might remember our old pal David Dreger (aka Knuckles Dawson) from such articles as Achievements 101 and as the newest blogger for Rooster Teeth Productions. Well, it seems that talking Points on X3F wasn't enough for KD as a recent interview he conducted with Turok game designer Paul Parsons has just hit the internets.

In the interview Knuckles and Parsons tear down the curtain and reveal the mysteries and drama of Achievement points. According to Parsons, Microsoft issues a guideline of best practices to developers when creating an Xbox 360 title. Included is an Achievement guide that is used to help developers make the most of Microsoft's mandatory stat system.

Parsons also discusses how some achievements had to be removed because they broke the pace of the game during testing, including multiplayer points that balance the modes, the four types of gamers according to the guideline (Killers, Socializers, Explorers and Achievers) and much more. As an added bonus, Rooster Teeth is holding a dino-themed contest for some Turok swag. We suggest you check it out.

[Thanks, Knuckles]

Brand new RvB mini-series headed to XBLM

Well, well, it looks like our Rooster Teeth friends haven't completely thrown in the Halo 2 machinama towel yet as they just announced plans to release a new mini-series onto the Xbox Live Marketplace.

In their latest blogging update, Burnie mentions that in the weeks to come, a new RvB mini-series entitled "Red vs Blue: Recovery One" will be releasing to the internets and onto the XBLM. "Recovery One" will mirror that of their "Out of Mind" project, but with new characters and it is going to officially be their final Halo 2 project (fighting ... back ... sadness and tears.) Burnie promises more information on "Recovery One" in a few days, but until then you should make the jump and check out their latest video that they made for the 2007 European Machinima Festival. We can only describe it as ... worldly.

[Thanks, Skandil]
