The Over-Achiever

Downloads: Quicktime, Quicktime HD, iPod, WMV.

A young soldier struggles to find meaning in a world that is driven by Achievements. This is a short created in the Halo 3 engine, captured at 720p. Anyone that’s had any experience in the world of XBox Live should understand the plight of the characters involved.  Or if you’re an achievement whore.

    Maybe I’m in the dark here, but aren’t you just ripping off redvsblue?

    I debated using ‘riffing’ or ‘ripping’.. depends on who’s running the show here.

    Red vs Blue is a story set in Halo about a Red and a Blue team living together on a Halo map. The short story seen in this video is not about that. :)

    Why the fuck do people think that every machinima is a ripoff of Red vs Blue? Is there no more creative criticism available?

    *sigh* I don’t see why a person always has to assume that every Halo short is trying to ripoff RvB. This was actually a nicely put together skit and pretty funny to. kudos

    To Cory:

    It’s a CQB helmet, not ODST.

    And I was thinking the same thing when hearing him speak.

    Classic! Now if only they’d release new maps for FREE! (instead of waiting until summer).

    Oh well, forge is cool.

    do you read any comments before you post? i guess not, scroll up a bit and youll see that someone already said the same thing you did, and they were just as wrong as you are.

    erm…to you idiots who say this is just a rip-off of RVB, do you say that about everyone who uses an animation style commonly used today? would you say that family guy is just a rip-off of steamboat willy? you guys are idiots!

  9. Kenton

    Haha good one, but in the end when he goes i want another one its with the cortez accent haha, Yeahss

    How is this similar to Red vs. Blue…? Because it… used the same game? And was… shown to an audience through the internet? My God, these similarities are incriminating indeed. -.-

    Leet World is more well put together than RvB. My biggest wish is for the Leet World to pick up and for people to know about it. and also for RvB to come back.

    I don’t see why people are saying this isn’t similar to Red vs. Blue. I never even saw Red vs Blue before I read this, but I just watched this and a few Red vs. Blue episodes and they ARE a lot alike.

    Someone made a comment about animation style being similar, but sadly the angles and the shots and the way they try to simulate talking is very similar. Since it is using the same game and the animations in that game are limited, most of that is to be expected.

    Anyway I thought this was more entertaining just because the voices were more contrasting.
    Besides all of that though they are all funny, but I liked the brevity and the poking fun at xbox live achievements which we’ve all come to know and love.

  13. Lovemuffin

    I agree. That dude totally sounds like Will Ferrell as Ron Burgandy.
    LOL

    “I want another one”

    This should totally be made into a machinima series

  14. ninjaPANDA

    “wait, thats it? i-…i killed 2 men, and all i get is this lousy achievement?
    …….i want another one”

    EPIC LULZ!!!!

    Can’t get enough of that guys voice! Awesome stuff! As an achievement whore(I didn’t get Two for One legit, either), I know the pain the green guy feels.

  20. Not You

    Wow, I wish more people I met were like the the twin Paladins in Sapphire-esque armor.

    Both in vocalizations, and manner, they far exceed the common breed.

    What kind of retards are commenting on your videos? “Rvb rules u sucks lolol” “Halo sucks xbox sucks” that isnt a critic its bullshit!!!

    Technically your right and wrong, CQB is correct, but what he means is Orbital Drop Shock Trooper. It’s Helmets worn by the Marines that arrive by HEV. Apparently it’s a Halo reference.

  23. Mysthalin

    Awesome one, as all from The Leet World crew, however The Bagger was better, I think :).

    YOU MAKE ME VERY >=( and your mom is overrated too.

  25. Chazzy Fresh

    This ISN’T a rip off of ‘Red vs Blue’… [although still just as creative ;),)]

    The stories are so far appart, I don’t understand what someone saw simular in between the two (besides the halo 3 characters)…
    ———————————————-
    Well anyways… I have always enjoyed your videos :p, but I never got around to comment them. I am not sure if you read comments from old videos, but this is the one I ended up blahdying on. Looking foward to all your updates! loooooove yoooooou.

    I… I want another one!!

    And seriously, all the guys who keep saying it’s like RvB, what is the basis of that claim? Someone pointed out that the camera angles and ‘talking heads’ style is similar but that’s really where it ends. (Unless you count the fact that it’s done on Halo3…) The guys at Rooster Teeth use their specific characters for videos -this one doesn’t. It’s just a bunch of random Halo players.

    Further more the only vidoes I’ve seen RT do for RvB which don’t add to the plot of the main RvB storyline some how are their PSAs, which take a very different tone from the Halo shorts The Leet World’s been doing. (Unless the Sponsor videos do… in which case I plead ‘poor student’.)

    Any similarities in humour style also cannot be attributed as RvB property either… Such arrogance of the fan!

    Hoefully this stops all those strange claims this is a Red VS Blue rip-off. On the other hand, looking at the kind of comments said posters have been making, they probably don’t read ealier posts… *sigh* You can’t beat the… ya know.

    I love how all three of them talked to each other

    lol at the the end I killed to me for this ……..I want another one.
