Suuuuuuper Uncomfortable…

Originally Paul had titled this video Terribly Awkward or something similar, and I made the call to change it to the more literal Social Anxiety Fear Factor. This had the downside of kinda ruining the surprise at around 1:45 (oh, by the way, spoiler: there’s a surprise at around 1:45), but had the upside of letting the socially uncomfortable among our viewers know that if the could just hold out a little longer, maybe the video would stop being so awful to watch :)

"Yes hello, I realize this shirt says 'Pony Jam'… ponies happen to be my jam, and I BOUGHT THIS BEFORE MY LITTLE PONY SO LAY OFF!"

 

Meanwhile, Unskippable takes on the classic JRPG-but-with-Disney Kingdom Hearts. Which I was actually kind of stunned we’d never done before. The scenes makes possibly less sense than it did when I played it 12 years ago.

Wouldn't be a JPRG without the protagonist weirdly falling forever through the ocean/sky/dream space. Joy.

 

And I’m back in the driver seat for Feed Dump this week, joined by the always “delightful” Cameron and Ash. We talk about penises in general, and at one point, mine in specific. So that’s fun.

Ash isn't actually talking about penises in this moment, but I'm still going to make a "thiiiiiis big" joke. There, I did it.

 

Also, don’t forget, the edited versions of the CheckPoint live stream go up every week! Here’s last week’s, as Kathleen gets excited about the viscera prospects in the new Doom.

We just want wall-to-wall entrails IS THAT SO MUCH TO ASK!?

While I have you, let us not forget the Crapshots, the live streams, and our podcasts. Too much content!

 

 

The Pair (of silly people)

Happy Monday!

This week’s LoadingReadyRun video is a bit different. Ladies be like “woah, what are these doing here!” and then all like “shit, do I have foot herpes now?” At least they are in this week’s video, The Pair. What happens when girls stumble into the sexy underpants trope? Not what you expect. Watch! Share! Tell your friends!

This week on Unskippable, back by medium demand, part two of The Witch and the Hundred Knight. Don’t be fooled by the screenshot, this episode is just as static and cheaply produced as the last episode. Clearly the developers are making sure their $300 animation budget is stretched as far as it could possibly go.

 

Corrector’s Commentary

Many of us love movies. Many of us love to talk about them – how they work (or don’t), what they mean (whether they mean to or not), and how they effect us (or we affect them).

Alex and Cameron are longtime film fans who have at least held and/or seen cameras, they may or may not be able to speak in critical terms about movies, but that won’t stop them from trying.

Born as Down in Front and continuing forward as Corrector’s Commentary under a nebulous sense of legal doom, Alex and Cameron are offering a theatre seat next to two people who will not shut up during some of your most loved or loathed films.

Corrector’s Commentary is a series of synchronized audio tracks in the tradition of RiffTrax. Simply download the podcast and load up the specified version of the movie – the podcast will instruct you how to synchronize the two so that we correctly talk through all the good parts.

Google Drive. No, the other Drive.

Happy Monday everyone!

Self-driving cars are the future, but we don’t actually want cars that drive just like people. Then we end up with cars that drive like your easily distracted Uncle. At least that’s what this first take on Google’s Self Driving Car was like.

Spoiler, in real life I (Kathleen) was the self driving car, sitting at an uncomfortable angle.

Next up this week is Unskippable, returning to the endless treasure trove that is JRPGS. This week Paul and Graham watch (I really hate to use the verb “play” in reference to this game. It seems dishonest) The Witch and the Hundred Knight. It’s a riot.

Oh wait, I mean, you are likely to riot, this game is so boring.

Hey everyone, it’s Monday! It’s summer! It’s sunny (at least where we are)! Let’s stay inside and play video games. (The best summer pastime.)

This week on LoadingReadyRun, Alex has a problem. Well, we think Alex has a problem. Alex doesn’t seem to think he’s got a problem, and predictably, that’s a big problem in Alex’s Stream.

We also learn a valuable lesson about Kathleen, and the amount of messing you should do to her. (NONE).

This week on Unskippable, we have part one of the intro to Infamous Second Son. Remember kids, the best way to fight the power is by aping Banksy’s shit. Badly. Stay tuned and watch the second part next week on The Escapist!

And finally, have you been keeping up with Crapshots? Cam and Kathleen sure do love music, but sometimes they might take it a bit too far in The Music 2.

Remember, you can watch all the Crapshots on our YouTube channel!
