Cruise Vacation

CONGRATULATIONS! You, lucky winner, are about to receive an ALL EXPENSES PAID, ROUND-TRIP FOR ONE, to OUR NEW VIDEO! (click here for details).

This video was shot about a week or so ago, and as it happened, on a weekend when both James and Kathleen were out of town. This left a skeleton crew of myself, Paul and Graham to take care of this video, and with one person being responsible for the camera, and another for the boom, we had to call in some friends! So this week you get a dose of Missie and Cam, who don’t show up in videos nearly often enough. The script this week was written by Paul, and the video was shot mostly on location at one of our many favourite haunts, Graham’s parents’ house. Amusingly, they were on vacation in England when this video was shot, and after we inadvertently set off the house alarm when we got there, we had to call them in order to figure out how to turn it off. We’re awesome at this.

Unskippable this week was Space Marine. You can view that here.

Checkpoint is online as well, with Episode 23: HD Remix.

Finally, please note that our new tee-shirt is up for pre-order, if you love Magic: the Gathering (and we hope you do!) you’re sure to love this shirt as well.


Imagine If You Will

Imagine, if you will… that our new video is up. Now stop imagining, because it actually is. Here.

So where did this video come from? Well, Graham explains:

I wanted to write a video about what “the next big thing” will be once vampires aren’t cool anymore, but the tricky part was finding something ridiculous enough. I really wanted Davis (my unnamed character) to get super annoyed, so it had to to be really silly. As a result, Cthulhu!

We went to the “elder god well” once already this season with Discount Deities, but I felt this was different enough that both videos could exist so close by in our chronology. Don’t expect another any time soon though!

When I was writing, I was originally going to have Gills (Paul’s character) pitch the Siren seriously as a suggestion, and then a third silly suggestion (comedy comes in threes, you see). But, as I was writing I thought it’d be much better for Gills to be really trying to make this Cthulhu thing stick, hence him using the Siren to “make Cthulhu look good”.

Once I was done the draft, Kathleen came in to add, what I felt was, some much-needed punch here and there.

In videos we co-write, people often throw out the phrase, “That was totally a Kathleen line!” when it wasn’t. It was just a really silly, often awful, line that sounds like something she would write. For reference, the pedophilia line? Mine. The guy-sexing-a-pie line? Kathleen’s. The “no it was just a guy sexing a pie”? Me again.
That, my friends, is teamwork.

Unskippable’s game of choice this week was an unspeakable horror… You can find it here.

Also Checkpoint is up over at PATV. Please watch in order to help to save 3DS. Or something.

Additionally, please note the announcemnt post for the PSN Featured Game. We’ll be playing the PS3 version of Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 on Saturday from 4-6 (Pacific), and we’d love for you all to join us!

Finally, there are but a few days left in the pre-order period for the Lasers of Understanding tee-shirts! We’ve not quite met our minimum quota for the production of a run of these shirts yet, but we’d really like to see them happen, and we’re nearly there. If you’re waiting on buying one of these, don’t let the opportunity pass you by.

This meeting is over.

Ways to Close the Deal

This week’s video is up, so head on over and check it out. You’ll be glad you did. Really. Just sign here.

It’s Andy! Also, Nate! Also, Nate wrote this! And Andy wrote a video you’ll see very soon! We don’t even work here anymore! Seriously though, this video marks our good friend Nate’s very first writing credit for LoadingReadyRun, and we certainly hope to see his name among our credits often in weeks to come. So we thought, ‘what better way to feature Nate’s work on this new addition to the X Ways to Y franchise than to give him a starring role!?’

A reminder to everyone that the new LoadingReadyRun store is now live, with all kinds of fancy new features to make your shopping experience as streamlined and easy as can be. And not a moment too soon, either, as a new tee-shirt pre-order is imminent. I won’t give away any details, I’ll simply say that this particular shirt is unforgettable.

Unskippable this week was Dead Rising 2: Part 3. It just keeps going….
