Happy Monday everyone! Monday means new videos, and we have three of them for you to delight in.
First up is this week’s LoadingReadyRun video, Crime Pays. Written by Paul, the video stars Paul and Jer — a casting choice that is a portent of good things to come here at LRR Headquarters. First of all, as you can see, Paul’s palsy (Paulsy?) has pretty much resolved itself, which is very good news. Secondly, now that Jer is done with school, he’s got more time to spend in LRR videos, which means you’ll be seeing more Jer in the future! The system works!
Banks are getting more direct about separating you from your money.
Next up is this week’s Unskippable, which gives us the ridiculous and not-at-all-unexpected conclusion of The Amazing Spider Man, Part Two. (If you missed Part One, you can watch it here.) As you can see, if you’re taking your inspiration from a stupid movie, chances are your game is going to be stupid too. Luckily we have Graham and Paul to point out these things.
I have a very trustworthy face. What could go wrong?
Finally this week’s CheckPoint, What is Worst in Life contains a very “Kathleen” joke. One so dumb, I couldn’t actually read it without cracking up. You can hear me snickering when Graham reads it out. In news more related to the episode, EA is once again the worst company in the world. I’m sure it’s a very well deserved title.
Hey everyone! Today I am the star. Sort of unintentionally. Both these videos feature ME! They were also shot on the same day, which explains why I’m wearing the same thing in both of them. Through the magic of the internet it looks like I never change my clothes.
First up is this week’s Feed Dump Cher The Menagerie. I take over hosting duties this week (Graham was really busy), and then Cam, Beej and I made some sort of insanity voltron. Probably the weirdest episode that we’ve done in a long time.
We also put up a spoiler video this week for the final set in the Return to Ravnica block, Dragon’s Maze! Wizards of the Coast was good enough to let us spoil the Dimir Guild champion, so it seems pretty natural that I would be the one doing the revealing this time.
Hey everyone! It’s Monday! And that means updates!
This week’s LRR video Yes Man takes on the Fox-news all talk, no substance school of newsmongering. Fun fact, the think tanks that Cam and I are fronting for are REAL Canadian think tanks. One right wing, and one left wing. LRR videos: sometimes educational.
Graham told me to make my character more obnoxious. So I started doing a Nancy Grace impression.
This week’s Unskippable is The Amazing Spider Man, Part One. Yes, based on the movie nobody liked. The opening cut scene is an excellent reminder of why nobody liked the movie either.
Even Gwen Stacey is like “Peter, why are you 9 feet tall?”
Finally this week’s CheckPoint Downloadable Consumerism takes on EA’s lastest marketing tie in. Would you like ads in your copy of Sim City? Well gosh guys, you don’t even need to pay for them! Yes, Really.
My lipstick matches my shirt AND the graphics. That wasn’t intentional.
This CheckPoint has also given birth to a wonderful GIF. Thanks Felix!
A peek at the behind the scenes glamour of LoadingReadyRun!
This week’s Feed Dump, The Spirit of Creaster features the never before seen team of me and Maya, and predictably, it’s filthy. That’s really my fault, not Maya’s. I have a one track mind, and that track leads straight down into the sewer.
I’m not a huge fan of April Fools, since its hard to do a good April Fools joke and easy to do a bad, unfunny one. I leave April Fools to the kind of people who have weeks to think of a joke and really nail the delivery. That is not something we have time for here at LRR HQ. So no jokes, just videos!
First up is MEN Easter — the manliest network in the world is doing some counter-programming for the holiday. Hope you like explosions!
David Vanderpunch in: I’m Really Just Doing This for the Paycheque.
Unskippable this week is Yakuza: Dead Souls, which takes the ultra-realistic Yakuza games and mixes them with zombies! Yes. Really. Seems appropriate for April Fools, considering I thought this title was actually a joke when I heard about it.
Guys, this game seems… dumb. Chill Kenji, we’ll just add the title Dead Souls. People loved Dark Souls. Isn’t that misleading? I sure hope so!
Finally CheckPoint has some strong words for Square Enix and lots of excitement for a game designed to pander to our age demographic!
