More Stuff than You Can Shake a Crapshot At!

Some of the LRR crew is down at PAX South, but that doesn’t mean that the content stops coming!

In this week’s Unskippable, Graham and Paul spend some quality time with a completely reasonable fellow who happens to be man in charge in Far Cry 4.

If you are looking for Magic: The Gathering silliness, look no further than the latest episode of Friday Nights: White Loxodon Exchange.

How about some funny/terrible news? We got that too! Check out this week’s Feed Dump: That’s Why They Call it a Chub.

The Crew’s D&D adventures also continued this week, with Episode 16 of Temple of the Lava Bears

And finally, thanks to our wonderful Patreon contributors, we have started on Crapshots Volume 3

Loading Time Catchup!
January 12th, 2015

Posted by Kathleen

Hey everyone, it’s Monday and I have some good news for you!

While looking back through our 2014 videos, we realized a few Loading Time episodes were missing, and we could have sworn we shot footage for them. Turns out we did, and they just needed to be edited! Ha ha, we’re awesome.

Anyhow, without further delay, a look back in time to exotic February 2014!  We have two all new Loading Time episodes out, one for Math of the Montage, and one for A Fortunate Teller.

First, you can revisit Cam being really mean to Paul and James for a video (as opposed to him being mean to Paul and James because he’s a misanthrope) while Graham films it!

Second, did you know we built a sweet set (TM) made of blankets and sheets for the fortune teller’s tent? Watch how (hastily) we made it!

And finally, because it’s Monday, there’s also a brand new episode of Unskippable. This week Graham and Paul take on the cartoonish horror of The Evil Within. I see dead people… everywhere, because they all chose to be murdered in the lobby I guess? If nothing else it was very considerate of them to bunch up like that.

2015, sun still rises in East

Hey everyone!

What a weird Monday. No weekly sketch.

BUT we did just do CheckPoint over on our Twitch channel and as I type this, Graham and Paul are streaming Bound by Flame on GPLP. A new Unksippable went up over at the Escapist today, and I’m heading home to edit this week’s Feed Dump. We also put up a bunch of new Crapshots last week and we’re going to film a bunch more on Friday, AND we have plans for everyone to come in and work on Saturday. In other words, aside from the weekly video, it’s been business as usual at the Moonbase.

There’s not much of a point to this post than to say “hey, we’re still here, doin’ LRR things,” but I hope you find that information comforting.

Anyhow, this week’s Unskippable is Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death. It’s an over the top hack and slash adventure game that makes God of War look staid and serious. Seriously, this game isn’t kidding around. It comes from the “I’m Gandalf, let’s go school” of plot setup — i.e. less is more. What even is this mask thing? Who knows, and more importantly, who cares?

There is also some sort of ancient magic at work? It’s not well explained because setting up the story would cut into valuable scythe time.

Wrapping up Season 11 in Style!

Hey everyone! What has over a million characters, features all your favourite LRR people, took more than seven days (including Christmas Day!) to shoot, and is a delightfully (non-cannon) way to send off a bunch of our best, silliest characters?

It’s The LoadingReadyRumble 2, the season 11 finale! I’d talk more about it, but I’d just spoil it.

If watching that has left you a little misty, don’t forget that:

  • Unskippable
  • Feed Dump
  • The Crapshots
  • The LRRcast
  • TapTapConcede
  • Friday Nights
  • and Commodore Hustle will all continue in 2015! Also we’ll have a mystery box! Exciting!

So speaking of that, enjoy this week’s Unskippable! It’s Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Title wise, COD:AW is no COD:BLOPS, but what is my friends? What is?

Patreon get!
December 19th, 2014

Hey everyone! We’ve launched a Patreon!

patreon

We’re super excited for 2015 and all the neat stuff we have planned for it. We’re launching this crazy thing so we can keep doing all the cool stuff we do and use the spare time we have from not doing weekly sketches to work on… THE MYSTERY BOX.

I’m sure you have some questions!

Q: Wow, that’s a lot of information. Can you give me a TL;DR?
A: I live to TL your DRs. The Patreon will support:

  • Our TapTapConcede Magic: The Gathering podcast/vidcast, weekly
  • A Crapshot mini-sketch, weekly
  • The “crew talks about stuff” LRRcast podcast/vidcast, bi-weekly
  • Our ongoing LoadingReadyLive video game streaming, which happens basically every friggin’ day
  • And… The Mystery Box  (aka, R&D for new, exciting things!)

Q: Do you have milestones?
A: Yes! At $3,000 a month, we’ll upgrade the crapshots to twice a week and the LRRcast to weekly. At $6,000 per month, we’ll get 6 episodes of CommodoreHustle too. At $10,000 per month (aka, reach for the stars money) we’ll do a monthly behind the scenes documentary.

Q: What are your pledge levels?
A: You can pledge what you like, but if you pledge more than $10 a month or more, you’ll get a one time gift of a thank you card from us. (We have plans. It will be cool.)

Q: Do I get exclusive videos if I support you guys?
A: We’re not going to do any Patreon supporter exclusive content – our videos will still be free to watch, but we hope you’ll support the Patreon because you enjoy what we do!

For more information, check out the video we made for the exclusive purpose of explaining this crazy thing!
