Next is the VERY NSFWEscapist Blankey Blank panel, in which Susan Arendt, Dan Amrich, Chris Kohler, Russ Pitts, Kyle Orland and Graham and I all compete to be disgusting under the guise of recreating the classic game show, The Match Game. Mature language warning.
Finally, the LRR panel was livestreamed over Twitch.tv (yah!!!) so an archive of that panel can be found on the Twitch website. UPDATE: LINK FIXED, NOW GOES DIRECTLY TO THE LRR PANEL. Thanks to Dezufnocosem!
Of course, we can’t forget the actual videos we put up this week:
Hey everyone! Have you ever wanted to touch your hands to our hands? You shouldn’t! We’re covered in so many germs! But if you insist, you should come and see us at PAX East!!
Graham, James and Kathleen will all be in Boston, so if you’re attending (the sadly, sold out convention), please come and see us. But where can you see us? Here’s a list of all the times and places that LoadingReadyRun will be:
1. The LoadingReadyRun booth in Bandland! We’ll try to keep to pretty regular hours here. Please stop by!
2. If we’re not at our booths, we could be at a panel! Specifically these:
3. Other important stuff! We’re helping our friends at Wizards of the Coast with the Chandra’s Quest PAX East game! For more information on the game, and the awesome prize you can win, visit the article on Daily MtG that lays it all out.
This week, I write not as Kathleen, but as some sort of low budget, internet based Robert Rodriguez. This week’s LRR video, The Theatre of the Mind is like… totally a Kathleen De Vere Joint. I wrote it. I was in it. And then I edited it. I now hate it and never want to watch it again. It also has Jer, so there are SOME redeeming qualities.
This week’s CheckPoint is Five Servings of Zombie. Turns out the DayZ developers want you to try and make healthy choices, even when your life is on the line. Dudes, last night I was feeling so lazy I didn’t want to order take-out. I just stayed home and made myself a single serving style bowl of plain brown rice for dinner. All I had was some mild cramps. Put zombies into the equation and I’d probably end up eating toilet paper.
Playing as bowser makes Mario’s actions look suspiciously like murder.
And finally, the funniest video in our Monday update cue is Unskippable: Halo 4. It’s funniest because I didn’t write it or edit it. All the jokes were fresh the first time. And Graham and Paul really do raise some good points about why a computer needs to use a computer to see what is up with the ship that it ostensibly is controlling.
Halo 4: Not the only game with revolutionary old-person face technology.
Yes! Friday Nights has returned! There’s really not much to say here… Go watch the video! (Which is hosted on the WizardsMtG YouTube Account, not the LoadingReadyRun one, so if you’re interested in Friday Nights and you’re not a WizardsMtg subscriber, be sure to check back here for more updates.) Future episodes will be coming monthly, and they’ll appear here and on Daily MtG.
As fans of the first four episodes will have no doubt noticed, the whole cast has gotten brand new personalized Magic Cards as part of the intro, with all new pictures abilities and flavour text. We’ve also added a certain gentleman by the name of Cameron Lauder to the opening titles. If you’re part of the Cam Fan-Club, you may celebrate now.
Of course, you can’t really read the cards all that well, so every time we put up a new episode, I’ll put up a new one of the cast cards. I’ll start with Graham, but I’ll reveal the next one according to a popular vote decided by the comments on this blog post.
Now here’s something. The slogan of these pies is “It’s Now!” PSY had a hit song called Right Now. I think Koreans might just like urgency. Everything is better if you do it NOW? Here’s that PSY video. Decide for yourselves.
