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!

World Cup Fever

Hello everyone! As you are well aware, the World Cup of Organized Ball Kicking (it’s full, legal title) is still raging on, and will be until approximately mid-September 2015. But what is Football? What is the ball made of? Why balls and not two small rectangles? You may know a little about football, but you probably don’t know… The Whole Story.

Meanwhile on Unskippable, Graham and Paul continue to plow through the glorious dump of E3 trailers. There’s the new Dragon Age, the new Dark Souls a game called Deep Down, another Homefront game because that is a thing that exists and Farming Simulator 15! Guess which one looks the best?

Spoiler: It’s Farming Simulator 15.

 

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!
