Untitled

Longtime fans of Rooster Teeth’s flagship Red Vs. Blue web series have probably heard of Joel Heyman, the eccentric voice actor of one of the most prominent characters of the series, Captain Michael J. Caboose. Unsurprisingly, he was featured in most of Day 5’s pre-release promotional materials (at least when Day 5 was first announced), although he has been noticeably absent for the majority ...

With the recent release of Overwatch’s Competitive mode, it should come as no surprise that there are some grumblings about certain features that are proving to be less than ideal. After all, no one is perfect, and some things that may have sounded like a good idea conceptually may not work as well on a practical level. However, it appears as ...
