This isn't episode 4.
2003-04-28 01:51:38 PM  
Why would you link straight to the file..the wrong file?

Go here to download episode 4:

"It's blue..we're blue.."
2003-04-28 03:25:37 PM  
Still no RvB tag... :(

Damn work filters mean I can't watch this now, and by the time I get home, it'll be Farked.

That's just plain craptactular.
2003-04-28 04:38:15 PM  
I think it's farked already.
2003-04-28 07:35:14 PM  
From their message board:

It'll be back up shortly. The server is actually physically being moved from our old data center to our brand new facility. Now why they opted to do this in the middle of the day is farking beyond me...
2003-04-28 07:46:12 PM  
this can't be farked YET can it?
2003-04-28 07:46:39 PM  
Got it this morning, farkin funny...

"Did you call my girl a cow?"
"No, I think he just called her a slut..."
2003-04-28 07:46:51 PM  
oops, didn't read that last post.

/head up ass.
2003-04-28 07:47:22 PM  
*Booo, Hisss, Boooo*
2003-04-28 07:56:39 PM  
Might be my favorite episode yet! Damn funny!

"All I've got is this flag"
2003-04-28 07:57:03 PM  
they need to get more p2p stuff up.. thier servers have been down every time they get posted...
2003-04-28 07:57:20 PM  
RSTStop780 did the newbie get his hands on the tank?

I'm anxiously awaiting him causing havoc with that tank...
2003-04-28 07:59:05 PM  
hehehe.. elbow grease
2003-04-28 07:59:29 PM  
They should release this on BitTorrent.
2003-04-28 08:02:07 PM  
someone who has already downloaded it should put up a mirror so the rest of us can get at it

it'd be considerate,
2003-04-28 08:02:18 PM  
Quickl I mentioned that to them and sent them all
the links they could need to set it up, last time
they had a post. Sigh.

2003-04-28 08:02:35 PM  
farked after an impressive 685 clicks
2003-04-28 08:04:03 PM farker on Kazaa could snowball pretty quickly, if someone has it saved.
2003-04-28 08:05:51 PM  
I submitted this yesterday. It also had a very unwitty star wars reference. Oh well.

Fark has a problem (IMHO) with submitting links. I tried to submit the new RvB yesterday. But fark said this link has already been submitted and told me to buggger off. The problem was the URL I was submitted had been updated since it was last on fark so it should be fair game for linking to again.

This is why the poster had to link right to the .zip file. Which is asked not be done in the Farq.

So Drew if you read this and you agree to change stuff then you should make me a total farker for free. If you do and you come to Sydney I promise to show you the best pubs around here.

Also farkers this RvB is the best one yet. You need to have seen the last one to get it however.
2003-04-28 08:07:59 PM  
2003-04-28 08:09:46 PM  
This one was great. They're really starting to pick up.

And don't forget to check out the WMD PSA.
2003-04-28 08:09:52 PM  
GoatBoy hmm. The only thing is, it (in theory) cuts down on repeats by not letting you resubmit the same link.

So there's a trade-off there...
2003-04-28 08:11:29 PM  
"I'd do it too."
"I know you would. Good man."
2003-04-28 08:12:06 PM  
Soporific agreed...the PSA is probably the best of all of the ones I've seen so far.

Some people may think it's cool to stockpile VX nerve gas...

Well, I for one do. Until I get invaded.
2003-04-28 08:12:51 PM  
Sidi Yes I understand why it is being done. However perhaps when you get the error message about this being submitted before you could have a check box option to tick stating that you know the site has been updated since it was last posted on fark. Just on possible idea. Saves having to link right to the download file when RvB 5 comes out.
2003-04-28 08:14:38 PM  
That's true...but you would need some kind of penaly to make sure the assholes didn't just resubmit it anyway. Maybe keep a list of people who override, and if they override more than two or three times when they shouldn't have they get nailed.
2003-04-28 08:14:53 PM  
They're downloading now. I'm squashing my last image post.
2003-04-28 08:14:58 PM the episode this morning. Funny stuff.

Rookie: "I'm not going to get married. My dad always said 'Why buy the milk, when you can get it for free.' "

Church: "Hey rookie. Did you just call my girlfriend a cow?"

Tucker: "No, I think he called her a slut!"
2003-04-28 08:16:07 PM  
Don't the mods pick what to post to fark from total fark? Would that not be enough to stop re-posts? Linking right to the .zip as in this post sucks.
2003-04-28 08:17:02 PM  
And the mods do such a great job...we get reposts 5 stories apart a lot of times.
2003-04-28 08:17:41 PM  
Uh oh...I didn't mean that mods...really...please don't ban me.
2003-04-28 08:18:09 PM  
Oh, and can we please get a Red vs. Blue tag?
2003-04-28 08:18:40 PM  
I'm glad they brought back divx versions. I hate quicktime with a passion.
2003-04-28 08:19:09 PM  
Still not downloading for me.
2003-04-28 08:20:29 PM  
Hurrah for the red and the blue!
2003-04-28 08:21:05 PM  
Oh, and can we please get a Red vs. Blue tag?

No, we don't need tags for everything under the sun.

Also, it's downloading now. Fark it as fast as possible!
2003-04-28 08:24:49 PM  
"Who is running this army???"
2003-04-28 08:28:20 PM  
Ok, for people having problems downloading I have the DivX version upas RvB_Episode4_LoRes

Upload speed is limited to about 14k/s though, and it's 26 mb...will take a while.
2003-04-28 08:28:28 PM  
I love the FAQ these guys have on their site also:

Q: Will you sell my e-mail address?
A: Yes, the website is actually an elaborate scam to sell your precious e-mail address for 1/16th of cent.

Q: Prick.
A: Please frame your insults in the form of a question.
2003-04-28 08:31:17 PM  
Their Mac Gamer switch parody is pretty good too.
2003-04-28 08:39:13 PM  
wow, these are still good. hope they keep up the good work :)

and i'm not noticing any download problems. in fact DAP works on it and i pull 300k/s
2003-04-28 08:49:56 PM  
OK, after watching all of these, I have a couple of questions. What exactly is "Red vs Blue" and how old are the guys making the videos? The high-pitched, nasal voices and bad acting are causing flashbacks to junior high school drama productions.
2003-04-28 08:57:10 PM  

You couldn't tell that was made from a game?



2003-04-28 08:57:41 PM  
"what your not armor certified?"
2003-04-28 08:57:49 PM  
No problems downloading it here either.. I was getting about 320 kb/sec with just one connection.
2003-04-28 08:59:08 PM  
"Oh my god! Who's running this army?"

This thing is written kinda like Supertroopers...
2003-04-28 09:01:24 PM  
MimeticNoise these are from a game called "Halo" that came out on the "X-Box" which is a console video game system. You know, like a souped up Atari.

The "Red vs. Blue" thing is a commentary on how silly conventions of first person shooter games of capture the flag can be...the fact that they're sticking identical bases out in the middle of nowhere for no good reason.

As for their age, the guy they have starring in their "Mac Gamer" commercial is in his 20' they're probably all college-aged. The voices are a function of trying to mimic the effect of the compression when talking over the X-Box.
2003-04-28 09:01:55 PM  
excellent work folks... keep 'em coming!
