Video: Arby 'n' the Chief Short #3

Hey all,

I know some of you are upset that the new story episode is taking another week.  I'm sorry about that -- like I said, the actress that voices Kylie, who plays a large and pivotal role in the episode, was absent for the entire past week and unable to fill the role.  If I had written out her character it would have destroyed the outline that I have for the next few episodes.  Thanks for your patience.

I have, however, released a third short which, if you place your anger aside, I think you'll all enjoy:

Thanks,
Jon

News: "Femme Fatale" delay

Hey guys,

Bit of bad news.  I had originally intended to have the next story episode "Femme Fatale" ready for air this upcoming Saturday, but was recently informed by my cast director that the woman who voices the role of Kylie is absent for all of this week, so I'm unable to get her voice work for the episode until Monday next week at least.  She plays a pivotal role in this episode, as the title clearly implies, and writing her out of it would cripple the season's end that I have established.  So I'm pushing the release of the episode a week so that it will air on the 3rd of December instead.  I'm very sorry about that, I hope you all understand.  Thank you all for your patience.

This upcoming Saturday then, in "Femme Fatale"s original slot, I will be making another short, couple minutes long.  Then after the story episode, on the 10th of December, I'm planning to release that behind-the-scenes episode I mentioned earlier, so hopefully you'll get a kick out of that.

Thanks again,
Jon

Video: Arby 'n' the Chief - Hypermail S01E11: "Hypermail Anniversary Edition"

Hey guys,

Newest Hypermail is now available!

Arby 'n' the Chief - Hypermail S01E11: "Hypermail Anniversary Edition"

I don't thank Bungie/343 Industries nearly enough for giving me most of the tools to do what I do, it's about time I did.

And sorry it's a bit on the short side.  I was exhausted this week.  Final projects and exams are creeping up on me.

Hope you enjoy.

Thanks,
Jon

P.S.  I realize I just screwed up royally by having Arbiter say he started the series by bashing one of Halo 2's map packs, when in reality it was the Halo 3 Heroic map pack.  I'm pissed about it and the best I can do is own the mistake.

Video: Arby 'n' the Chief S06E10: "Cradle to Grave" Director's Commentary

Hey all,

Instead of another short, I've decided to upload a director's commentary for the latest story episode in the series, "Cradle to Grave".  I haven't done one in a while and people have asked for another, so there you have it.  I know a lot of my commentaries suck so I tried to make this one interesting.  Takes a little while for me to get going but it does get better.

Hope you enjoy.

I'm also thinking of making a behind-the-scenes episode which would walk people through the creation of a full story episode.  If there's enough positive feedback on that idea I might go through with that.

Thanks!
Jon

Video: Arby 'n' the Chief S06E10: "Cradle to Grave"

Hey guys,

The new story episode, "Cradle to Grave", is now available:

Arby 'n' the Chief S06E10: "Cradle to Grave"

I know a few people have been hounding my online account activity and checking my game history for episode spoilers, then spamming them in the comments.  The title of the episode sort of foreshadows its events, but the spammers have got it a little wrong anyway.

If you don't want an episode spoiled for you, avoid reading comments until you watch the video.  Simple.

Hope you enjoy!

And please leave comments, please!  As I said before it's one of the few perks of this job, reading what people have to say!

Thanks,
Jon
