I have just received my highly anticipated copy of RVBX: Ten Years Of Red vs Blue on blu ray and I think it may have been the best purchase I have made in a long time, maybe even the best purchase I have ever made period. As I have been going through the 14 blu rays in the set, I decided to watch through the extras and special features on each disc first since I have already seen every episode from season 1 to 10.
I was completely blown away by what I saw. Yes, you do get the traditional deleted scenes and outtakes but it is the other items that really made me happy. I laughed out loud as I listened to the various cast members go through their lines and ad lib/struggle with the material. There was something else though that truly blew me away.
The features for the fans not only demonstrates how much they mean to the guys and gals at Roosterteeth but it also shows that they appreciate them as well. A section of fan art was truly cool and creative, the fans of Red vs Blue/Roosterteeth also had a section that was just pictures of them proudly supporting the company and I watched Gus Sorola, Geoff Ramsey and Burnie Burns at their very first PAX convention years ago fielding questions from the fans. It really hit me for some reason that Roosterteeth not only knows the fans are paying their bills but that they wanted to celebrate the fans for being there for them.
As I walk the Walmarts, Best Buys and HMVs here in Canada, I am noticing more and more DVDs/Blu rays for Red vs Blue popping up in stores. It solidifies that I was right to get in on the ground floor 10 years ago when I first saw episode 1 of season 1.
I am planning a massive blu ray review in the future but a 14 disc set will take a little time. It is a great issue to have though, as I truly love the content that is chruned out by Roosterteeth. Whether it is Red vs Blue, Achievement Hunter, Let’s Play, Immersion, The Gauntlet, The RT Podcast or anything else they have created…..make mine Roosterteeth!!!
