Red vs. Blue is back

The popular Halo-based machinima from Rooster Teeth productions is back for another run. The first episode of Red vs. Blue:Reconstruction was released yesterday to much delight from fans of the original series.

For those who don't know, Red vs. Blue was a comedy series filmed from within the Halo games themselves. It followed the conflict of the Red and Blue armies as they faced off in an empty box canyon in the middle of nowhere. It went on for five seasons and 100 episodes and was quite hilarious. The characters and their interactions were the main attraction, although the story was fairly funny as well as it developed.

Anyways, now it's back and looking better than ever with their ability to use Halo 3 to film parts of it. The premier episode looked like it was going to be a more serious series until the very end, which foreshadows much of the same things that made so many people love the original series. If you have any interest in Halo, sci fi, machinima or laughing, I would highly recommend picking it up.
