You won’t believe what this woman did to make doctors hate her…

Happy Monday!

Unless you live sealed inside a hermetic shell (and if so, lucky you!) you have probably noticed pretty much everyone in the world talking about football! Real football. The one with the ball you kick with your foot. But with Snorsh just missing qualification again, it can be hard to take an interest. That’s why we’ve thoughtfully provided you with some videos to watch!

This week’s LoadingReadyRun video finally shines a light on the terrible tale we’ve seen repeated across the internet for months now. Doctors Hate Her – what can she do?

It’s also the week after E3, and that means as the journalists sleep off a tiring week of games, junkets and alcohol Graham and Paul bring you the only summary you need – the E3 Trailers episode of Unskippable.

And finally, are you watching the new season of Crapshots? The Mailroom shows you a special behind the scenes look at how we ship our merchandise!*

*Not really, just how we ship WiiPlay shirts.

Happy Monday! It’s time for lots of LRR videos!

This week, even the best product developers at the mighty Yummies Corporation can’t solve the toast problem… but can thousands of uniformed idiots? Find out in Design by Committee.

Honestly, I could almost see this being advertised via infomercial. It's not the dumbest thing I've ever seen.

Spoiler: The toast problem probably doesn’t need to be solved.

Next up is Friday Nights – Time Walking! Jer’s got a brand new deck he wants to try out, but he ends up testing it over and over and over and over and over and…

Jer, look at this! Graham you're not showing me anything I haven't seen before? But it's a weagle riding a bike - how do they even do that with their tiny legs??

Bonus, now we know why this card is banned in so many formats.

This week on Unskippable, beards intensify in Bound by Flame – the game that wants to be Game of Thrones, and the game that Graham and Paul would honestly prefer if it actually were Game of Thrones.

Hey Dave, does this ice make my butt look big? No Rod, I think the ice is very slimming. Even though it's wider, it's like...  light and airy you know? Dave you just described the literal opposite of ice.

And finally, don’t forget to check out all the back episodes of CheckPoint on our YouTube channel. Live every Monday at 2 pm on Twitch, available whenever you like on YouTube!

Happy Monday everyone! This week’s LRR video is the return of Commodore Hustle with… Cleaning Day! Inspired by real life (and real gross) moonbase events, what happens when the Moonbase needs a deep cleaning but James isn’t there to make sure stuff gets done? You’ll just have to watch and find out!

This week on Unskippable, Graham and Paul riff on Way of the Samurai 3, which is surprisingly educational. How dangerous is a horse? Did peasants in feudal Japan harvest rainwater? Can you go bald young and just rock that shit? All these questions and more are answered. Not well mind you… but they are answered.

 

There’s also a new CheckPoint for you to check out (see what I did there?) on our YouTube channel. Did you know Chess is bad for you? Did you know that satchel charges are really bad for Titanfall? Did you know Crytek is trying to save money on character design?

Also worth noting today, the Loading Time backlog continues to diminish. This week you can see behind the scenes of The Gatekeeper!

Drugs! Drugs! Drugs! (The Musical)

Happy Monday! It’s a glorious spring day (where I am) and of course spring means teenagers getting out of school and into trouble. So if you have some teenagers in your life, why not show them the dangers of “the hootie mack” and “dank nugs” with this week’s LoadingReadyRun video, Drugs, Drugs, Drugs. Unlike the song, they’re all just bad.

This week on Unskippable, Graham and Paul riff Wolfenstein: The New Order. And I realize in this alternate history, things are supposed to be going bad for the allies, but did anyone stop and think “hey, maybe things are going bad because we try idiotic maneuvers like leaping from plane-to-plane in midair? Anyone? No? Ok, I’ll just continue to die over the Atlantic then.”

Magic, girls, cats and dickbutt… Oh my?

May has been a whirlwind month at LRR International HQ. Between LRRCON (p.s. Andrew’s pictures are online and they are great!), doing a ton of work on “the secret project” (a.k.a. the Conspiracy video), finishing up the Hero’s Path arc, working on Tabletop Deathmatch and finding time to do anything else in between… well, it’s been tough. This blog post is like two days late. But it is late because I care. Not about blog posts, but about getting enough sleep. I refuse to deal with less than six hours a night. REFUSE.

Anyhow, let’s put up some links to all those videos I was just breathlessly discussing, shall we? First up this week is a candid look inside the LRR creative process with Ways to Get Video Ideas. This video also features a LRRCON cameo! Are you in it? Maybe! Go watch and find out!

Next up this week is Unskippable, with Ryse: Son of Rome. The game is, to be honest, a little skippable, but it more than makes up for that with the frankly ludicrous design of its ancient Roman panic rooms, which according to this game, were a thing. (I’m not actually sure if they were a thing, but it does seems like the kind of thing the Romans would invent…)

This week also saw epic conclusion of the 9-episode Friday Nights: Hero’s Path series with The Mastery. Will the crew go all-in on the mythical 10th Theros block mechanic, Charging Badger? Will good prevail? Will there be cute cats? So many questions. Only one answer.

If you’re not around anyone who’s easily offended, or you have some headphones, you should also consider watching this week’s Feed Dump, the NSFW Ladies Extravaganza. Never before have I felt so compelled to put this warning on a Feed Dump. Probably don’t let your kids watch this one. Tally is FILTHY. (Ash and I help.)

And finally, we’re rapidly clearing through our LT backlog. The episode for The New Old Thing is now online. Check out the rest of our YouTube channel for other behind the scenes videos as well!
