Some new videos for you!

Hey everyone!

Today I’m sitting in the office getting lots of work done. To keep myself from getting distracted by everyone else, I’m currently listening to Nine Inch Nail’s The Downward Spiral. It’s very motivating music (at least to me). What I’m listening to right now actually has no bearing on the content we’ve put up in the last week — it’s just that sometimes I don’t have much to say other than “look at these videos” and I need to put something here. Alright, I think that’s enough pre-amble… ONTO the videos!

There’s a new Qwerpline!Derek interviews tabletop game creator Klaus D’Abrucio, Richter has strong opinions, and Edith interviews Nsburg’s Poet Laureate.

We put up not one but TWO episodes of Running Start this week, owing to a slight production hiccup due to the Amonkhet Pre-Prerelease.

The March Loading Time is up. It was actually done a couple of weeks ago, but we hadn’t put up all the Crapshots that were featured in it yet. The perils of shooting ahead and being… too organized? Enjoy!

Speaking of Crapshots, here’s the two from last week.

The March edition of Mail Time is also up! We get… a lot of candy and some very, very old gum.

Anoani returns with Ian, Beej, Cori and Heather giving their picks for the Spring 2017 season.

And finally Shivam Bhatt returns to Tap Tap Concede to discuss more of the real-world inspirations that went into Aether Revolt!

Get Yourself a Running Start on Running Start!

Hey everyone! Have you checked out Running Start? Graham and Paul are back playing games and riffing on them, but instead of just doing the first five minutes or so, they’re playing an hour of some real crud from the bottom on the barrel. Don’t worry. Their pain is your gain.

Here are the first three episodes to get you hooked. The first few are free, but after that… they are also free. This metaphor doesn’t work. A new episode of Running Start comes out every Monday!

Also in the new show club is Who the Hell. Your friend Bengineering knows it’s real hard to keep up on pop culture. Who are these fancy friends that Tumblr loves? Don’t have time to watch a million things? Just watch Who the Hell, and soon you’ll be able to tell your Dr. Whoms from your Crystal Jewels. Check out episode 2, Captain Picard!

Hey everyone!

It was April Fools on Saturday, and while we’re not super into pranks here at the Moonbase, we couldn’t resist a chance to do something a little different for LoadingReadyLive. This episode has everything — muscles, touching, a plant, some wigs, the opinions of teen girls, puppets… Yes, there sure are lots of things in this episode.

But more exciting than that, we have a new show! Who the Hell is hosted by your friend Bengineering. Ben knows that keeping up with pop culture can be confusing sometimes. Do you ever find yourself muttering “what is this thing? Why do people like it? Who is this anime boy that’s trending on Tumblr?” All these questions and more are not answered in the slightest in Who The Hell. Check it out and see what you think!

Hey everyone!

Exciting news! Exciting news two weeks in a row! Exciting news about shows! Exciting news about new shows two weeks in a row!!

We have a new show! A show where Graham and Paul… make fun of silly video games. Ok, maybe it’s not a totally new show, it’s more a new show following in the footsteps of the beloved Unskippable and GPLP! It’s called Running Start and Graham and Paul play through the beginning of video games. The first episode is online now, so let us know what you think!

In exciting and unrelated news, the newest Mail Time is online too!

And the latest Crapshoot written Crapshot is online too!

Hey everyone!

Do you like James? Do you like Adam? Do you like James and Adam demonstrating why they are best friends by being supportive and caring? Would you prefer it if James tried to help Adam, but ended up laughing at him a bunch?

Well, you might like our new LRRPlay series, SpeedrunOneWord. Adam is pretty good at video games, but is he world record good? In this new series, James puts Adam through his speedrunning paces. Every episode, James selects a world-record speedrun, and gives Adam twice that time to complete the game. The first episode is Portal!

In other exciting news, did you watch the newest episode of Commodore Hustle? It’s back! It’s shorter, but in a good way! We think you’ll like it.

Speaking of returns, LoadingReadyLive is back! After the usual two week break. It’s not… momentous or anything. But I’m back this episode. So that’s something.

And finally this week on CheckPoint, we cover a tale of EVE Online revenge, a Blizzard lawsuit, the Floigan Bros, MLB The Show, and Persona 5’s Amazon problem.
