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.
Hey everyone, Sorry to Interrupt, but this week’s video may contain images some of you find offensive. We are sorry to inform you that Alex wears a tie in this video. We are deeply sorry for any viewers who were disturbed by this portrayal of a thin strip of fabric around a white male’s neck.
Moving on, this week’s Unskippable is part 2 of Asura’s Wrath. Ostensibly, this is an action game, but it features an opening cutscene SO LONG they put anime style commercial bumpers in it. Yes. Ok. Fine.
Crapshots continues to be weird and dark as all get out, mainly because I continued to be involved in writing them. At least The Voice is in a good mood.
With Graham away at the MTGO Community Cup last week, I had to host CheckPoint by myself. The episode, Music for Exposure, turned out well, but it includes about 300% more awkward shuffling than usual.
And finally, the Khans of Tarkir pre-release was this weekend, and we came straight from the pre-release to record a new Tap Tap Concede! What cards were all-stars, what cards made us groan? Watch and find out!
It’s Monday and we’re getting back on the horse after PAX! I hope you like content, because we have a ton of new content for you this week.
First up is a brand new Commodore Hustle Fixing The Steam. It’s time for the streaming office’s bi-annual tuneup, but what will Alex and Cam do while the office is out of commission. And more importantly, what are Paul and Beej even doing in there?
This week on Unskippable, Capcom has an interesting strategy for the opening cutscene for Asura’s Wrath. Put quick time events in it! You still can’t skip it. And the credits are still rolling. Yup, sure is “gameplay” though.
Now, if you’re subscribed to our YouTube channel (and if not, why not?) you’ll also notice we put up the first new LT in quite a while. Why was Self Driving Car surprisingly annoying to shoot? Watch and find out!
Warning: the latest Crapshot The Ball is both adorable and dark. It also features the voice acting talents of one of our Kickstarter executive producers, Rachel Bradford! Which voice is hers? The one that’s not Cam, Kathleen, Alex or Paul.
In podcast news, there’s an all new TapTapConcede with Cam, Kathleen and Alex discussing their first impressions of Khans of Tarkir.
There’s also an all-new LRRCast featuring questions and answers from Twitter and our PAX recap!
