It may appear to the untrained eye that, with Kathleen away, I forgot that I was supposed to do a blog post last week. The reality is that I intentionally skipped last week’s post so that I can do an extra special double post this week! That is my story and I am sticking to it.
That means we have
Two LoadingReadyRun Videos:
Punchr, which presents our brilliant and extremely unethical idea for a new mobile social network
Antiquing, which chronicles the rise and fall of the newest antique store in the neibourhood
Two Unskippable Videos:
Find out how Ninjas get psyched for battle in Shadow Warrior
and join Peter Parker once again for The Amazing Spiderman 2, a game that manages to be worse than the movie!
Two Feed Dump Videos
Find out the real scoop on underwater super heroes in Nobody Likes Aquaman
and learn why you should be careful around the kitchen in The Tale of the Exploding Eggnog
And a whole bunch of Crap Shots!
So much content! I think we could really do this whole video thing professionally!
Happy Monday everyone, Graham here with your hard-hitting video update news. Our top story today: There are videos.
In this week’s sketch, Jason is having a… unique issue with his roommate. Usually the best roommates are the ones you don’t have to deal with, but not always.
Unskippable chains one Kingdom Hearts into another with the opening scenes of Re:Chain of Memories, the HD remake. This scene is preceded by a cinematic we opted not to use, with the same music as the last one, playing over a montage of scenes from the last one. Because it’s the handheld version, and handheld users are lesser citizens.
And, as usual, there’s the ongoing selection of Crapshots to keep you entertained during the fleeting seconds in which we’re not producing some other kind of content.
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
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.
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.
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.
While I have you, let us not forget the Crapshots, the live streams, and our podcasts. Too much content!
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.
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.
