Happy Monday! In Canada, today is Thanksgiving! We have Thanksgiving early in our country because food does not really grow here after October in most parts of the country. Canada is cold! In the USA it’s also a holiday, so I guess it works out OK! Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the rest of the world… we’re sorry you’re not also on holiday. Let us make it up to you with some videos!
To get you through this trying time, why not watch the latest LRR video, Wrenegade Wrapper. When someone is up to no good in your house, you know what you must do.
This week on Unskippable, Graham and Paul riff Destiny. It’s truly a beautiful game. But that doesn’t mean it’s not silly.
And finally, there’s a new LRRcast! Catch up with James, Paul and Cam (or… Japam… No, wait. nevermind) as they answer your questions about Sorry to Interrupt and other topics! As always you can also subscribe to the LRRCast (and other podcasts) on iTunes or Archive.org.
What is this? Three blog posts in a single week? The world has gone cray. Super cray. What have we cray?
After many, many (MANY) hours of work from Jer, the Temple of the Lava Bears D&D series has started! You can listen to the podcasts via iTunes, Archive.org, download them, or you can watch the episodes on our YouTube channel! I recommend watching because you’ll get to see lots of incredible Featherweight art!
And if that’s not enough content for you, we continue to plow through the backlog of Loading Time. This week’s episode is for Heard but not Seen, and there is a lot of PRIME cat footage. Many Baxter and Khaavren shots await you in this video!
Just a quick, non-video related blog update to let you know that the photos that Andrew Ferguson (of Desert Bus for Hope official photographer and generally all-around-great-dude fame) took of the PAX Prime LRR panel are up! See yourself, and us, but photographed by an expert!

Destiny is a popular game. Destiny is a popular game with some problems. Destiny is a popular game with some problems and Graham and Matt and Jer and many, many of their friends have played a TON of it. Thus you have Destiny Tales. Lovingly pixel-arted by the official LRR cartoonist Featherweight, we think that if you’ve played… any Destiny, you’ll enjoy this one.
It’s Unskippable 300! This is madness! No, this is… a lot of cutscenes. This week, Graham and Paul riff Unearthed: Trail of Ibn Battuta, an indie game with problems that’s actually wading into uncharted fun territories. Ugh, that’s two awful jokes. Time to move on to the next video.
Friday Nights is back with Clanmanders! Alex wants to build a new commander deck, but how will he decide between the Khans of Tarkir? Spoiler, he does it in a silly way.
And finally new Crapshot The Hell! They’re all on our YouTube channel, and because I’ve been helping with them for the past couple of weeks, they’re all getting really, really dark.
Once again, Apple products continue to provide a rich well of inspiration for the LoadingReadyRun crew, particularly with this week’s update, iOS8. It’s got all those new features that you
enjoy want are told are good ok functional!
On Unskippable, Asura’s Wrath… continues with Part 3 (?!!) I’m not sure if this is still cutscene, or just the actual game we’re seeing at this point. Maybe it’s all just cutscenes and QTEs. Which… I guess some people might want? Somewhere? Maybe one person? I don’t even know anymore. Have you played this “game”? How is it? Let us know!
Last week on CheckPoint, there was lots more Destiny news in Your Destiny is Menial, most of it about the loot system. Sure is a terrible game that nobody likes or enjoys at all like, amirite? Hey, stop playing Destiny! I’m talking to you!
And finally, we have a new LRRMtG draft up on MTGO Academy! James and Graham say goodbye to M15 by going mono-red. How does it go? No spoilers, but as you can see in this screenshot, they’re running a Staff of the Flame Magus, so it can’t be going that well.
