    If you're like Gus and you like local multiplayer games you might wanna check this game out : cyberheistgame.com
    Full disclosure, its my (and my teams) game, but it is not complete shit :) We were one of the Student showcase finalists for IGF 2014 and had the honor of losing to "Risk of rain" , as the website says its available free on Desura. However , you will need a friend to play it with and you will also need to be talking on skype.

    Great Patch and though Geoff was not as dashing in front of the camera he brought a lot of experience to the table... though, to be fair, Geoff doesn't have so much experience with structured podcasts or screentime (Drunk Tank, VS and Happy Hour not-with-standing).

    One of the better patches overall even if it got a little off topic (something I feel is good for Gus to have to do, he often gets too caught up in his list! :D

    gavins right about the water thing, drinking cold water slows down the digestive muscles, and if you eat food and drink cold (i mean ice cold) water, food doesn't get digested properly.

    • RiverRunning

      Depending on the external temperatures and your own metabolism (general and specific to when you drink the water).
      The water itself is not metabolised, just absorbed, so muscle temperature is irrelevant, the contents of your digestive juices all work at different optimum temperatures (the acids - mostly as high as possible, the enzymes - generally at body temperature, the bacteria - slightly above below body temperature) so depending on what you are eating and what you currently have in your bloodstream and what your body's currently requirements are you'll metabolise the food slower, faster or at the same speed - the latter is (approximately) the most likely unless you are not sitting down and eating at a table or in front of a TV or computer.

    Start working at home with Google! It's by-far the best job I've had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for 74 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail

    Valve announced like a couple of years ago that they were working on a Source 2 Engine, was in 2012 I think, early tools from it cropped up in Dota 2 as well. Given this, plus all the leaks showing L4D3 and Half-Life 3, I'd definitely expect something big from them sometime soon, about time. Were never going to see a new game before a new engine, already been over 10 years since Source.

    Could be cool to see them launch the likes of Half-Life 3 on the same day as the first set of Steam Machines. Not as an exclusive, but having a big title out on the same day should add extra incentive.

    • RiverRunning

      I would love to see L4D3, HL3 and P3 all be exclusives for Steam boxes just to see the looks on people's faces and the outcry - but then some of us like to watch the world burn! :D ;) :P

    Yeah, Iceland definitely isn't in North America. I love Rooster Teeth, but a lot of those "fun facts" are more fun than fact.

    • Maurinn

      iceland is on both north america and Europe tectonic plates and it splits in Þingvellir, the island is growing inch a year, Reykjavík that more then 70% of the people live on is on the north america tectonic plate so if you think about it they are not talking bulls*** but Iceland is part of scandinavia so you can say that it is and it isn't.

      Its on both continental plates therefore part of it IS in North America, However its classed as a European country due to historical ties.

  • GerritBijvan

    So how come nobody reacts to the fact that Iceland isn't in North America, it's an European country... sigh

    • RiverRunning

      It is, along with Greenland, on the North American continental plate, though it is (literally) only half on as the other half is on the Eurasian plate. As a country it is (along with Greenland) European having been settled by northern european tribes way back when and continued to tie closely with Europe rather than switching to Canada and the USA.

    Okay I signed up just so I could comment because I'm a little confused and concerned. Did Gus say that this was the last episode of the patch? Or did he just mean the last episode of the year? I can't believe they would just end it without any fanfare like that, and it was posted as the first patch of 2015 implying there will be more. But on the other hand Gus mentioned how long they've been doing the patch, and at the end he said "go watch our other stuff" and didn't say they would be back next week like he usually does. Maybe I'm just being paranoid but I hope the patch isn't over!

    Final Fantasy XIV is a successful subscription model MMO getting its first expansion this year running smoothly on ps3, ps4 and PC cross platform. I wish the guys would at least learn about it so they'd be able to mention it when its worth mentioning.

    I'd quite like to see a Rooster Teeth starting out in EVE Online video, it's one of those games I've always been curious about but which seems like too much of a commitment to actually do.

    I think they meet in Iceland every year because the developer is based there, if I recall correctly they also elect a player council of some kind to act as a sort of in game government each year, but I may be completely wrong on all of that.

    • RiverRunning

      2 years ago

      I'm really not convinced it'd be worth doing an EVE video given how long it would take to get the hang of it... Minecraft isn't the most straight forward game (just look at how long it took them to learn the ingredients for basic recipes in the archive videos - and it's not even PC version which always messes them up completely)... I don't think they'd be able to do an EVE video without having experienced players (which is a large investment of time) and the gameplay is not exactly speedy... it's rather more slow paced than most games - but then so are a lot of these more complex games... makes them hard to get into and only really interesteing for core fans ... AH seems to focus more on general consumer content than hardcore fan content these days so I don't expect it will happen (even in a World of Tanks kind of way) unless it goes on the twitch channel... (which really needs to archive more of their videos (I know Ray does on his own channel but it'd be good if everything way archived - many of us are in the wrong time zones to see thing live or too busy to see them before the thirty day thing (especially with so much other content - yeah, I know, prioritise...) :P ;)

    • MGurr

      Yeah every time I feel like trying it I start looking at the wiki, several hours disappear, then I decide probably best to leave it for now.

      A one off would be good, maybe getting a few different people to make an account and start out. Given the number of people at RT these days I imagine they must have someone who plays or at least has enough knowledge to shepherd as few people through a video or two.

    • FrozenRage

      2 years ago

      Trust me, I played it for about a month. SO MUCH to learn and do and it's very daunting so I retreated back to the safety of my WoW characters. Agreed though I would like to see, even if it's a one off video, some RT people starting out in EVE.

    Regarding the water issue: basically your body can process warmer water quicker, but cold water gives a more refreshing/satisfying feel when the rest of your body is warm.

    Hey look, it's Geoff again!

    • RiverRunning

      2 years ago

      Your body can process warm and cold water the same speed if you have enough body heat to maintain those processes at optimal temperature - this also applies if the water is hotter than this - you have to cool it back to that optimal temperature. Cold water (lower than body temperature) will burn more calories and cause muscle contractions (notably in your bladder) so that might be helpful.
      When the weather is cold (cold as in at least less than 10 degrees C) though cold water is not more refreshing or satisfying - often it is distinctly nasty (the colder the weather gets, the worse unless you are wearing too many layers of clothes).

    Something you need to understand: the first day of Spring and the first day of Autumn, no matter where you are in the world, has approximately 12 hrs of sunlight. Period. If you have long periods of darkness during parts of the year, you will have long days during the opposite parts of the year. The poles get month long nights during their winters and equally long days during their summers. Cold is not relative to hours of sunlight.

    • RiverRunning

      2 years ago

      Great points until you get to the point about cold not being relative to hours of sunlight... granted, height above the horizon has an impact too but hours of sunlight does make a difference... think about the temperature difference between a sunny day and a cloudy day... if you meant daylight then also, temperature difference between daytime and nighttime...
