The Nerd Fu Crew is gearing up to head up to Austin, Texas for the craziness that is RTX 2015 and while it’s sold out, we’ll be covering it for those that can’t make it and because we’re big fans of the RT crew. If you were able to score tickets, then congrats and look for the Nerd Fu shirts so we can say “hi!”
Austin’s very own Rooster Teeth drives this party that masquerades as a convention and we’ve attended it the last several years. And you know what? It just keeps getting better and better! Just in case you’ve been controller deep in a badass videogame and a that case of Surge you’re hiding, here’s a little info to get you caught up.
WHAT IS RTX?
Where Gaming Meets the Internet.
No really. We’re serious. That’s actually from Rooster Teeth’s mouth (teeth mouth?) themselves. Want more? Okay. Almost all of the Rooster Teeth crew puts on this convention in Austin. Personalities from RWBY, Red vs Blue, The Slow Mo Guys, Lazer Team, and Achievement Hunter will be there. Need a little more clarification? No problemo. Read this:
RTX is a convention hosted by Rooster Teeth, where we celebrate internet culture and gaming. There are exhibitors, live events on our Gaming Center Stage, panels, activities, and more.
Got it? Good. Let’s move on…

RTX 2015 is like a gamer’s internet dream come true.
