Escaping from the Escapist? Start here.

Postby Matt » 18 Jan 2010, 21:28

So today marks our second video post over at The Escapist, and perhaps you are yourself an Escapee, making your way over to our humble home to check out the various pieces of content we upload here, or to look into the history of LRR itself to see what you've missed. Admittedly, our promo spot from a few weeks back, while thorough, may not have been the most effective way to bring you up to date with our content, so first off I'm going to suggest you head over to our video archive. We have more than 400 videos in our backlog, so you'll be kept busy if you want to watch it all.

There are a few you may have seen before out there on the internet, but not known they were us, like:

Halo: The Future of Gaming
Rejected Wii Play Games
How to Talk Like a Pirate

We also Did A webseries last year Titled "commodoreHUSTLE", which you'll find right here.

These were predated by a series of "Us playing Us" videos, in which we played out caricatures of ourselves. These should serve to familiarize yourself with the cast a bit, and the sorts of antics we get up to:

Moving Out
Lock Out
Bandwidth Exceeded
Format War
All The Little People
Son of a Bitch (a personal favorite, guess why :p )
And Bagel Time

Another great series to check out is X ways to Y. These serve as our exhaustive guide on how to do a variety of mundane tasks.

So yeah, we do videos.

Don't write us off as a one trick pony though. We do a variety of other things too!

Tim produces a behind the scenes bonus video series by the name of "Loading Time".

Graham occasionally produces a vidblog... ish... thing By the name of "Phailhaus" (though I've been known to do them myself before.)

And then of course there's the Iron Stomach Challeng videos in which the cast eats gross things.

Hm... I guess those are videos too. Ok, we do a LOT of videos.

As far as other content is concerned though, we have a podcast.

We have a store. (in which you'll find a new shirt design up for order every month(ish).

We have a Forum where you can chat with all of the hardcore LRR fans.

We have a Twitter account (@LoadingReadyRun) on which we post little day to day updates on the status of the website, or what we're up to.

And we have this blog, where we'll be posting news and announcements, as well as information regarding appearances, screenings, and other neat stuff!

So basically, what I'm saying is throw LoadingReadyRun.com into your bookmarks, and make sure to come by every coupe of days. The content we post on the escapist is only a small part of the full LRR experience, and we wouldn't want you to miss out!

Thanks for stopping by, and we hope you'll keep coming back!

A few other things:

Paul used to have a beard. And he used to look like Gordon Freeman.
Bill is 6'10" tall. Most of the rest of the crew are over six feet; he just makes them all look average.
The other seasons of DVDs will come out eventually.
There won't be any more Celestial Sea. (sigh)

Since you'll be reading this on the forum, be warned: We're a weird bunch. Perhaps not in a way you'll be used to or be entirely comfortable with at first, but we try to be an open bunch, with cookies and hugs abound. Along with potentially less family-friendly derivatives of cookies and hugs.

The biggest thing I can suggest is practicing spelling the initials. L-R-R. LRR.

May not seem like a big deal, but a piece of us dies whenever someone uses double-L, R.

What are the odds of anyone but forum regulars posting on this thread?

<irony bullets of doom>

The Escapist tends to have tons and tons of new topics, all the time.

From my short experience here, it seems more like LRR sticks to extending old topics further and further until they break, and then making new topics with exactly the same name plus a number. :D

It's fun though. I haven't felt this good since I was on NGamer. :O :)

It would be rather embarrassing if we didn't get a single new forum member from the Escapist.

Didn't the same thing happen with the Desert Bus intro thread?

Perhaps not. I know that I "escaped from The Escapist" around the time of Desert Bus, so I might have posted in it. I think...

To be honest ever since I got here every day has been one whole fun-filled drunken party, so it's gotten kind of fuzzy...

*throws a brick anyway*

That one was just a warning to let you know that we mean business >(

On an only slightly related note most of the new Escapist converts are gathering in a fan group over there, which seems to be helping with "stemming the tide" or a grotesquely massive influx to these forums, so yay?

(I'm not sure if that's something to be happy about or not, really)

I deserved that.

I'm in that fan group. I think. Meh. 's more fun here. I don't think I'll be on the Escapist much.

That's only because I channel the greatest of my weirdness (and my porn collection) over there to avoid bringing this place to the ground. If not for Alex, I'm not sure the rest of us could restrain ourselves.

But if you like LRR, and you liked 4chan in its prime, then you'll like the eximworks forums. We could use some more people, it's getting too quiet over there.
