I've read that no, they aren't.

New episode. And some fantastic camera work, no less, a lot of slow-mo at certain points look very nice, as well as placing the credits on Red Base as it pans up.

According to Lopez, Sister is dead, and Blood Gulch has been won for the Reds. The Reds sound more like they found five dollars in the laundry, and less like they just won a war.

Lopez gets there very quickly. Like, a few seconds. His armor is a much darker shade of brown, but then this IS the first time he's bee shown in Halo 3 style.

Grif doesn't believe Sister died, and won't believe it until he sees a body, saying that when they were kids, they went skating and she fell into the ice. She was under water for three hours, but when they rescued her, she was alive and somehow pregnant.

Lopez, in minutes, finishes what Sarge had wanted: A massive underground chamber designed for Holographic simulation. (Lopez was at work for only a minute, the room is massive. Figure that out) Even when Grif thinks it's cool, Simmons (Both of them are having a bizarre role reversal around Sarge...) thinks that it would have been easier just to build the car. Sarge decided just to go for style points.

Meanwhile, Caboose continues work on the ship. I find it odd that all of his lines when it shows him working have made him sound highly competent.

What I want to know is when the hell did Sarge learn Spanish? :???:

The series is fun, but there are some oddities in it. :-?

You just have to adapt to inconsistencies and retcons. Or you just have to not worry about it.

RvB: Relocated finale:

DONUT IS BACK! And I was right, he was working with Tucker. He tells Grif to "help him" (Tucker) and that "it's under the sand" Grif doesn't tell anyone else because he thought it would be a lot of work.

Meanwhile, Caboose is probably possessed by one or more AI, uttering to himself in THE creepiest voice I've ever heard in anything "There...now we can all be together...forever..."


REALLY can't wait for the next series.

I get the impression that this new caboose or this Legion of AIs is going to be new villain... before somehow becoming the new incarnation of church.

*Blows cobwebs and dust off thread*

Ladies and Gentlemen, the trailer for Red vs. Blue: Recreation.

So I assume THAT is the product of Caboose using Epsilon. Tex's personality has softened WAY down, but Church has remained entirely the same, which is strange considering his personality would be different if he was a replicated personality, especially one from Caboose.

I've been waiting for this to start up again. I hope Tucker makes a comeback, though considering Donut's "under the sand" comment which mirrored Tucker's, I suspect that'll happen.

Can't wait!

I like how they had Caboose on fire. However, that begs the question, why hasn't anyone run around while on fire in RvB before?! I mean, I can understand why they didn't do it in Blood Gulch Chronicles (No incendiary weapons), but they had access to Flamethrowers and Incendiary grenades all throughout Reconstruction and Relocated.

Because only Caboose can do it well?

Well yeah, but there were a million and one opportunities to ignite people in Reconstruction and Relocated. Rather than dying off-screen, wouldn't it have been funnier if Jo-en-es had run out of the brig on fire and collapsed near Wash? Or if Grif's burning body had fallen off the top of Red Base?

I know about the Flamethrower, but I don't remember the Fuel Rod Gun causing opponents to burn.

I know about the Flamethrower, but I don't remember the Fuel Rod Gun causing opponents to burn.

I stated that they were in halo PC for 2 reasons:
1. There were included in muliplayer only in Halo for the PC
2. The Fuel rod launcher was the cheapest, noobish, *long line of rolling insults has been censored and cut out* thing included in the multiplayer game

Why yes, stupid ad bot, there IS a new episode...stupid ad bot.

Nothing majorly huge, actually, even for a series premier. The Reds try to decide whether or not to wipe out the Blue team, while Caboose admits he's been taking parts from the ship, but still won't tell anyone what's he's working on.

It seems like a trend, series premiers lacking an explanation for something at the end of the previous series. Reconstruction didn't explain what happened to a lot of characters since Blood Gulch Chronicles, Relocated didn't explain what happened to Church and Wash, and Recreation didn't explain what exactly was going on with Caboose.

Just watched the episode from Monday. I won't spoil anything too much...

Washington lived.


At the same time, something I've suspected for a while has been confirmed; they weren't thrown into the future at Sidewinder. I mean, Sarge thought it up. And Vic supported it, and when is it okay to take something Vic says at face value?

Ladies and Gentlemen: Red vs. Blue: Season 9:

You remember when this was a series about guys dropping the F-Bomb at each other, and occasionally they'd shoot at each other?

I think I peed a little. Monty Oum is clearly pulling out all the stops. I'm not even sure how much of that is actual game footage.

I'm glad to see more of York.


But my hope is this is all Wash telling the reds and blues about project freelancer, not just a jump back in time. Also getting to see more reasons behind why Wash shot south in cold blood is a good promise.
