By this point in time, I’m sure you’ve heard of RTX Australia 2016.
… Oops. I owe you, dear loyal reader, a huge apology. I really should have mentioned it in the news before now, because the announcement itself was big news. So let’s start there, courtesy of Rooster Teeth’s very own Gus and Barbara:
Quick recap: Sydney (Australian Technology Park), 99 days from now (January 23 and 24, 2016), tickets on sale now.
Gus and Barbara will be there, as well as a bunch of other cool people Rooster Teeth people, such as Matt Hullum and Bernie Burns. There are a couple more huge names, and non-Rooster Teeth ones at that, to add to the roster now:
The keynote speaker will be Stephanie “Hex” Bendixson, co-host of ABC’s Good Game. She’s both excited and nervous to share her love of internet culture and video games with attendees, stating, “This whole event is going to be such a cool and unique opportunity for all of us to connect and share our love of internet culture and gaming. I am admittedly equal parts excited and terrified to be your key note speaker, but I know we’ll all get through it together. Worst case scenario, a great meme will come out of it.”
The second guest announced this week is none other than Freddie Wong. Wong has a massive presence in the video game world, currently operating his own YouTube Channel (RocketJump) but previously being a competitive video gamer (he won a Guitar Hero 2 competition with Less Pop More Rokk). To put it bluntly, he’s a pretty cool dude.
