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!!!!!

TechnogeekApparently, this was the first SSB tournament to actually be sponsored by Nintendo; the upcoming Wii U title Splatoon was even going to be demoed there.01/30/2015 - 7:29pm
TechnogeekMore "game" related than "politics" related, but still noteworthy: the Apex 2015 Super Smash Brothers tournament was forced to relocate after the fire marshal demanded an evacuation due to building damage caused by the recent winter storm.01/30/2015 - 7:28pm
Wonderkarpgot my Reading Rainbow kickstarter rewards....I cant tell if this is a sticker or a bumper sticker.01/30/2015 - 5:38pm
Goth_SkunkAs such, the first playthrough is always going to be the most evocative.01/30/2015 - 3:47pm
Goth_SkunkSo while branching storyline is hallmarked as a feature of the game, the storyline never stays branched for too long. There is a linear story that may branch at points, but each branch always comes right back to the main line further down the road.01/30/2015 - 3:46pm
Goth_SkunkMy biggest gripe about it though would have to be that its replay value sucks. I quickly learned that apart from a few key decisions you make, most choices end up not being relevant because something terrible happens anyway.01/30/2015 - 3:45pm
Goth_SkunkI *love* The Walking Dead. Like I said, I played Season 1 through in one go, and subsequently pre-purchased Season 2 in its entirety sight-unseen.01/30/2015 - 3:43pm
Andrew EisenBy the by, I take it you're a fan of Telltale's Walking Dead? I'm one of the very few who really doesn't like it. Bums me out.01/30/2015 - 3:39pm
Andrew EisenI think we're safe with stuff like Life is Strange, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, and TellTale's games. I was thinking more along the lines of D4. It's genuinely up in the air whether we'll get a conclusion to that story or not.01/30/2015 - 3:33pm
Goth_SkunkUltimately, from this potentially ignorant perspective, it's the gamer who assumes the risk, not the developer. I don't approve. Fortunately, I'm only paying $5 (CDN, no less), so that's money I can easily write off if I'm disappointed.01/30/2015 - 3:32pm
Goth_SkunkIf I'm wrong, and the unthinkable should happen where the developer ends up aborting production of the rest of the episodes, bundle purchasers would be understandably upset. Even moreso if attempting to get a refund turns out to be a hassle.01/30/2015 - 3:30pm
Goth_SkunkThere is an option on XBL to purchase all episodes in a bundle. Pay full price now, get the rest of the episodes as they're released. I would like to think this means that the other episodes are in fact done and ready.01/30/2015 - 3:29pm
Andrew EisenCatch 22 sometimes. Some gamers don't want to buy it if there's no guarantee the whole thing will come out and the whole thing can't come out unless enough people buy the early installments.01/30/2015 - 3:17pm
Goth_SkunkI sincerely hope this trend towards episodic games is not done so because the developer only had enough capital to produce the first 1/5th of the story and is banking on making enough money from the sales of that fifth to produce the rest.01/30/2015 - 3:16pm
Goth_SkunkThat being said, I want to try Life is Strange to get my feet wet.01/30/2015 - 3:13pm
Andrew EisenI'm that way too. I'll wait until the whole thing is out. Same goes for DVDs of TV shows. I'll wait for the season set.01/30/2015 - 3:13pm
Goth_SkunkIf an episodic game is really good, and the time between episodes is more than a week, I'm more inclined to wait for the rest of the episodes to all come out than to try playing it episode by episode at launch date.01/30/2015 - 3:12pm
Goth_SkunkAs someone who played through TWD Season 1 entirely in one day, and then played Season 2 episode by episode when they each came out, I strongly agree with this sentiment.01/30/2015 - 3:11pm
