It’s Monday and we’re getting back on the horse after PAX! I hope you like content, because we have a ton of new content for you this week.
First up is a brand new Commodore Hustle Fixing The Steam. It’s time for the streaming office’s bi-annual tuneup, but what will Alex and Cam do while the office is out of commission. And more importantly, what are Paul and Beej even doing in there?
This week on Unskippable, Capcom has an interesting strategy for the opening cutscene for Asura’s Wrath. Put quick time events in it! You still can’t skip it. And the credits are still rolling. Yup, sure is “gameplay” though.
Now, if you’re subscribed to our YouTube channel (and if not, why not?) you’ll also notice we put up the first new LT in quite a while. Why was Self Driving Car surprisingly annoying to shoot? Watch and find out!
Warning: the latest Crapshot The Ball is both adorable and dark. It also features the voice acting talents of one of our Kickstarter executive producers, Rachel Bradford! Which voice is hers? The one that’s not Cam, Kathleen, Alex or Paul.
In podcast news, there’s an all new TapTapConcede with Cam, Kathleen and Alex discussing their first impressions of Khans of Tarkir.
There’s also an all-new LRRCast featuring questions and answers from Twitter and our PAX recap!
It’s Monday and Monday means a nice fresh cup of coffee, a brand new LRR video and the near-constant risk of death by surprise stabbing. Well, not really, but it might if you live in the Universe of this weeks LRR video, Professional Stabbists.
It’s a brand new “extreme” sport. With much emphasis on the “extreme” and not much on the sport.
This week’s Unskippable is Pandora’s Tower and it is also EXTREME! But kind of extremely gross, not like, X-Games extreme. Unless you can have an X-Games event where you get turned into a Resident Evil monster. And if you could, I don’t think a lot of people would participate.
The new season of Crapshots continues to chug along, and Paul’s adventures in time travel continue to be wacky, but generally unproductive.
And finally, our video for our Khans of Tarkir spoiler card Meandering Towershell (aka, Durdle Turtle) went up, and as you can see, the card is “so Graham.” Whatever that means.
Most of the crew is still at PAX Prime in Seattle, but it will take more than that to stop the flow of new videos!
First up, this week’s LRR video is about an exciting new dating service. Are you having trouble finding that special someone? Maybe the answer is that only one someone is just not enough! Try Third Wheel Dating today!
Last week on Unskippable, we learned about Killzone: Shadow Fall’s the poorly thought out housing solution. This week, we get up close and personal with the wall dividing the Helghans and the Vektans and also get a good look at Vekta’s rather impractical architecture. Check it out in Killzone: Shadow Fall Part 2
And Graham, Kathleen and Tally have some rather disturbing revelations in this week’s Feed Dump: The Ghost of Sexual Relations Past
Something else that happened this week is that Adam streamed for 36 hours straight! Want to check out his stream? Well, YOU CAN’T! It was live and you missed it! Don’t worry, though, all 36 hours were recorded and will be uploaded to our LoadingReadyLive YouTube cannel just as soon as we can!
Pax is here! Once again LRR will have a booth in bandland and this year we will have an embarrassment of merch. Shirts, DVDs, playmats, sleeves AND the brand new Creepy Doll goes to Pax offical Pinny Arcade Pin and the new Jund ‘Em Out Shirt, hot off the presses!

BlogMistress Kathleen here, back after a very (very) long business trip and back on the blog train!
It’s Monday and that means a whole bunch of new, exciting content, but much more importantly, it’s a Monday where I’m updating the blog and that means mouseover text! So without further ado, let’s get to the lightly hidden jokes!
This week’s LoadingReadyRun video is Ways to Avoid Surveillance. Worried your online activities have attracted the attention of the feds? Follow these suggestions and you’ll feel like an “elite haxxor” (and have the same skills as someone who calls themselves an elite haxxor) in no time!
This week Unskippable takes us to the planet Vekta, where the extremely unlikely circumstances of Killzone Shadow Fall take place. To even discuss it is a bit spoilery, but let’s just say these people probably hold the intergalactic procrastination award.
Friday Nights returns this week with 7 in the Cue. What happens when Kathleen’s away and there aren’t 8 people to fire a draft? The crew is severely tested. And gets pretty testy.
