Just saying this now: If Microsoft uses our idea, we expect some royalties.

LoadingReadyRun: The 720th Degree
Unskippable: Yakuza 4 – Part 1
Checkpoint: EA is Just the Worst
Feed Dump: No Foot for You
Loading Time: Geeks and Six Foot Ceilings
Bonus: Mailbag!
GPLP: X-Men Destiny (PT9)

Big thanks to GameHouse for letting us shoot in their office. We needed somewhere that looked like a stylish game development studio and, being a stylish game development studio themselves, they were perfect. As for behind the scenes info, what do you think the XBox Free60 was made out of? I can tell you right now that it wasn’t Zunes. In fact, I am pretty sure that I have never actually seen a Zune in the wild in Victoria.

Something else we did this week is the bonus Mailbag! video we did answering some questions sent in by Escapist viewers. Think of it like AskLRR, but shorter and with less talk about Magic.

Have a great week, everyone!


  1. The secret to the zune replacement is… Never gonna give it up, never gonna let graham down, never gonna run around and spoil it.

  3. Great sketch this week (as is common), but I feel like I need to say that you really dropped the ball on the EA story in Checkpoint. I know it’s comedy, but it didn’t strike me as very “funny” so much as “a mean spirited jab at a group of consumers exercising their will in the public sphere.” This has been happening a fair amount recently as well. I still love your stuff, I’m just asking for you to think twice upon occasion. Let the angry fans beat me down if they must.

  4. I feel like the Zune replacement was using old casette cases.

  5. Also don’t want to spoil it, but I can say that Graham paid WAY too much for the Zune-substitute. :D

  7. it was a bunch of old (or maybe not old) internal hard disk drives, right?

  8. I actually *have* seen a Zune in the wild, as my ex-boyfriend had one… I don’t remember it as being particularly impressive. All in all, I would much rather have the XBox Free60. *grins*
