LoadingReadyRun Parodies Fox News Smear of Mass Effect

January 29, 2008 -
When last mentioned on GamePolitics, Canadian comedy troupe LoadingReadyRun was busy raising money for the Child's Play charity via their Desert Bus gaming marathon.

Now the LLR crew has come up with a great send-up of last week's nuking of Mass Effect by Fox News:

[...] This Mass Effect/Fox/EA/Bioware drama just won’t go away, but at least someone’s having a little fun with the whole fiasco. Check out this parody of the controversial Fox newscast by LoadingReadyRun. [...]

That was priceless.

haha...that was good.

Priceless indeed. Respect!

SERVED!

Agreed, very funny and definately brightened my day.

Wonderful little bit of comedy there.

Curses my workplace blocking youtube! Oh well, I'll see it later...

@ Jabrwock

I'm there with you. But even if they did not, my sound card doesn't work so I wouldn't be able to listen to it. :(

Canada finally contributes!

Excellent! Kudos to LoadingReadyRun!

That was amazing.

That was hillarious. Way to shut up the media, and nice Mario Galaxy reference (the U R Mr Gay line).

That was full of win :D.

I'm still laughing. That was a perfect parody of the whole news debacle! I think I'm going to be quoting this for a long time. :)

2 Girls 1 Kart. Awesome.

Sadly, I almost found the original funnier...

...almost... :D

I love the ending using a remote mine, oy! They totally had it coming! I LOL'd like 4chan on /a/!

Is it just me who things the 'professor' look like a younger version of a Miami lawyer we all know and whom I apologise profusely for invoking the name of please dont hurt me...?

Holy hell that was great! 20 stars out of 10!

Aw man, I gotta watch these guys more often. I've watched a couple episodes they've done at the behest of a friend, and rather enjoyed them. :)

So, where can I get some plasma mines? *snickers* Thanks for sharing that video delight with all of us here at GP. Its nice to see some humor interjected into this debate.

ROFLMAO!

Funny... The actually Fox News report was just as accurate.

Fortunately for me, I had the presence of mind to put my coffee out of arm's reach before watching.

Good stuff, gentlemen. Kudos!

Mario Kart Double Dash: 2 Girls 1 Kart!? LMAO!

I couldn't stop laughing at this, bravo to the guys who made this wonderful vid. "My daughter played 5 minuets of this game and now she is teen pregnant!" I was expecting a "Falcon Punch!" reply to that.

Damn that was just what i needed first thing in the morning I cant stop laughing that was freaking priceless

Hehehe... Very well done.

" "Mass Effect" makes masses Erect "

LMAO

Ha ha!!! Nice!

Eh, it was okay, they need to work a bit on their timing.

@anon

Thanks!

That was hilarious! And so sad at the same time, because it's exactly how newcasters and "experts" actually behave... Except for the whole "cut his mike" thing. Instead they just should and interrupt more.

Did anyone catch the "Puckman" at 3 minutes into the video?

PWNED...

Ohhhhhh SNAP!

Bwahaha. :D

"Cut his mic!"

"Can he do that?"

"No."

"Oh, thank G-"

"Cut his mike."

Funny! It was not the machinima thing I was hoping for but funny and creative nonetheless.

This is why most of the original Saturday Night Live cast was taken from alumni of Toronto's Second City and why SCTV was a Canadian creation.

We rule at comedy.

It was ok. I did laugh, though, when the game expert gets cut off before completeing his sentences.

That was excellent... I couldn't stop laughing... Then, I burst into tears because, with the exception of the plasma mine, that was a pretty accurate, almost documentary-like portrayal of what's really happening.

@ Moriarty70

You *almost* rule at comedy. The Brits are the Gods of comedy - Canadians are the Demigods.

"Unlubed buggey"



That was made of win.

This video is made of win. :) Correct me if I'm wrong but is the author "expert" guy in that video Gustavo Surola? He's the guy who plays Simmons in RedvsBlue and he sounded and looked like him.

WAAAHAHAHAHAHAH!! Priceless!

Fox News got burned. :-))

SWEET JIGGILY JESUS THAT ROCKED!!!!!!!!

@Salty

No, Gus works in Texas. This was made in Canada. Besides it doesn't look anything like him.

LOL!!!!!

Andrew EisenIs there suspicion that Sommers isn't disclosing things that would cause a conflict of interest in regards to her recent video?09/17/2014 - 12:27pm
Andrew Eisenlomdr - But, GamerGate folk keep insisting that the movement is about ethics and transparency in game journalism. Why would they be interested a video about sexism in video games and the people who comment on it?09/17/2014 - 12:25pm

MaskedPixelanteI'm having different issues with the site. I'm not sure what's causing it, but if I have this site open, videos become choppy and unwatchable.09/17/2014 - 8:33am
E. Zachary KnightConster, It is not just you. I believe the techs are looking into the problems.09/17/2014 - 8:18am
