[This weekend Destructoid is reporting live from RTX in Austin, Texas, the community based gaming expo for Rooster Teeth fans and everyone else.]

From 500 in attendance last year to 4,000 this weekend at RTX, Rooster Teeth had a lot to celebrate during its panel. However, that didn’t keep the guys from poking fun at themselves, discussing accidentally drinking a stranger’s spit with Elijah Wood among other things. Yes, Elijah Wood was on the panel … and it was kind of weird.

The panel opened with a trailer for Red vs. Blue season 10. Shortly after, Rooster Teeth founder Burnie Burns and other key members (Gus Sorola, Geoff Ramsey, Joel Heyman, Matt Hullum) took their seat. “What’s up fuckers?” Sorola asked to rousing applause.

“There are more people in this room than people who attended RTX last year,” Sorola said. “Probably more people in line trying to get in this room right now than there were at RTX last year.”

The five guys went on to discuss details on the past, present and future of Rooster Teeth, including what tools they will use in upcoming productions. While the team is hesitant to jump into Halo 4 on launch -- stating their dissatisfaction with their sudden jump into Halo 2 years ago -- but they are looking into using the Valve Source Filmmaker which Heyman called “an amazing tool.”

Burns and company went on to wax nostalgic over having their voices in Halo 3, showing Red vs. Blue on an IMAX screen, and the early days of Rooster Teeth. Some things have changed, however, and mostly for the better. This was abundantly clear when Elijah Wood joined the panel via Skype.

The panel couldn't get sound from the Skype interview which made for an awkward couple of minutes. This however was part of a practical joke on the audience, since Wood was actually present at the show. He came up and joined the panel on stage.

“I heard about the show peripherally because I'm a gamer and I like Halo.” When he was offered the role of Sigma in Red Vs. Blue he said,  “That’d be awesome!”

Going forward, Rooster Teeth plan to make Break Room into a series (despite comparisons to Disney's upcoming Wreck-It Ralph) and start a Let's Play series.

Even though Rooster Teeth continues to grow, the guys still have enough self-defacing humor and crude commentary in them to stay true to their roots. Whatever those roots may be.
