100th and last episode of Red vs Blue

The end of an era. Red vs. Blue will air its last episode tonight.

From Wired:

Red vs. Blue, the cult hit, web-video series created from in-game Halo footage, concludes its genre-defining run as it airs its 100th and final episode Wednesday evening.

The comedy series, featuring two squads of hapless Halo heroes locked in an endless civil war prolonged mostly by their own ineptitude, took the emerging machinima medium — movies made with real-time video-game footage — mainstream.

The videos are recorded directly from three Xbox consoles running a linked game of Halo. Players on two consoles play the red and blue characters, and one player on a third game console records all the action from the first-person viewpoint.

Red vs. Blue‘s popularity was bolstered when Microsoft decided to embrace Rooster Teeth’s work instead of suing them.”
