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!!!!!

E. Zachary KnightMatthew, AE, Yeah, that is why I have a hard time understanding critics of Sarkeesian. I look at her videos as a Feminist review of video games, but for some reason, others look at them as personal attacks.10/30/2014 - 12:01pm
E. Zachary KnightDefinitely a good answer. That is the way I lean. If you actively chose to stop gaming, or just stopped out of habit, then yeah, you are no longer a gamer.10/30/2014 - 11:45am
Matthew WilsonAE i agree, but it is worth pointing out the fact that that is whats happening.10/30/2014 - 11:45am
quiknkoldbehavior to warrant having a Title that doesnt involve a piece of paper.10/30/2014 - 11:43am
quiknkoldwaiting in line. Thats not being a Gamer. Thats akin to me reading a Pamphlet in line and calling myself an active reader. or watching a movie trailer on a tv in walmart and calling myself an active movie goer. There has to be some form of repetitive10/30/2014 - 11:42am
quiknkoldbeing A Gamer is a Conscious decision. I am consciously engaging in this form of media and showing some form of enthusiasm. The only person I Wouldnt call a gamer is somebody who has a random game on their phone just to kill 5 minutes cause they are10/30/2014 - 11:41am
E. Zachary KnightSo how much time must pass since the last time you played a game before you are no longer a gamer?10/30/2014 - 11:33am
Andrew Eisen"Plays" is present tense so the clarification doesn't seem necessary to me.10/30/2014 - 11:18am
quiknkoldI would change that from "One who plays games" To "One who currently plays games". Like my friend as a kid playd games but then he stopped and hasnt for the last decade+ so I wouldnt call him a Gamer.10/30/2014 - 11:16am
Andrew EisenHmm, that sounds like a great idea for a series of articles! I bet they'd be well-received and not taken the complete wrong way at all!10/30/2014 - 11:12am
Andrew EisenThat's right, gamer simply means one who plays games. That's it. The idea that "gamer" refers to something very limited and specific, well, that's no longer applicable in this day and age of mainstream gaming.10/30/2014 - 11:12am
Andrew EisenMatthew - As I said last night, that is not a bad thing. Different types of reviews to serve different interests is a GOOD thing and should be encouraged! There is not, nor should there be, only one way to review a game or anything else.10/30/2014 - 11:01am
ZippyDSMleeAnyone see this? http://www.dailykos.com/story/2014/10/29/1339617/-Cartoon-Gamergate-Contagion-Spreads?detail=facebook10/30/2014 - 10:55am
E. Zachary KnightNeeneko, Matthew, yeah, there is no "wrong" way to review a game. It all depends on who the reviewer wants reading the review.10/30/2014 - 10:48am
quiknkoldhas their own stream, you are a gamer. I think the only prerequiset is to Play Games for Enjoyment10/30/2014 - 10:21am
quiknkoldI always felt the Gamer Identity was expressing an enthusiasm for Gaming in general. There are different degrees to that. If you say "I love this game and play it, lets see what else" with Ipad game, you are a gamer. If you are a retro game collector who10/30/2014 - 10:20am
NeenekoIt is long overdue, and things will probably settle down when they accept that the industry does not cater to them and them alone and go back to posturing within their own subculture.10/30/2014 - 10:10am
NeenekoThe community has always been split, with many factions within it, and they used to not interact all that much. Now they are having to confront they are not alone and thus not the one twue gamer identity.10/30/2014 - 10:09am
CMinerMW: The two are not mutually exclusive.10/30/2014 - 10:05am
Matthew Wilsonthe gaming community is going to split in to 2 groups. one wants games reviewed as product, and the other as art with all the social critique that comes with that. at this point i dont think it can be stopped sadly.10/30/2014 - 9:56am
