LoadingReadyRun Parodies Fox News Smear of Mass Effect

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:

    I suppose technically there are 6 possible sex encounters in Mass Effect, two of which have a lesbian angle to them. But you can experience at most 2 of them in any playthrough of the game: one with the Consort, and the other one with either Liara, or with Ashley (if you are playing a male Shepard) or with Kaidan (if you are playing a female Shepard).

    In all cases, the sex scenes are perhaps 30 seconds long and not particularly racy. There is no frontal nudity or anything like that, just a few seconds of side-view skin. Its much tamer than some of the stuff you see on prime-time network TV. Yahtzee said it best: “it will hardly make your Mass Erect”.

    First I laughed and then I cried because this is pretty much what happens whenever we get a video game expert on a news show. Always pushed to the side not being allowed to say what is needed to be said.

    I like the intro where the reporter is talking about how you can have full on hardcore pornsex with freaky alien chicks and can change bust size firmness of ass and how it taste when you nibble on an earlobe

    and how the experts daughter played five minutes and now shes six months pregnant
    uh..the games only been out for three M(cut off)

    Okay…I’m gonna have to disagree with you there. I agree that it’s not him now but he still sounds almost exactly like him. And I know what Gus looks like and this guy isn’t incredibly far off. *sigh* Sorry, didn’t mean to rant. I’m just saying I think it was an honest mistake. Whatever, no big deal.

    I love this. I’m a politico and a gamer, so when I see non-politicos getting pissed off this much about Faux News, it validates that I’m not just some liberal whackjob; I’m a liberal whackjob who can point out idiotic fake reporting when I see it.

    I myself have never visited England and haven’t actively searched for British Humor(tm), so out of all those mentioned I’ve only heard of Fawlty Towers, although I’ve never actually seen it.

    @ Luke

    Nope, there are at least 3 “love options”: Liara, Ashley and Kaiden. So depending on whether your male or female that’s 4 possible scenarios.

    “My daughter played that game, and now she’s six months pregnant!”

    “But the game’s been only out three months…”

    I almost see glimpses of JT from the guy with the bow tie.

    Python, Fawlty Towers, Black Books, Blackadder, Only Fools and Horses and most comedy of the 70s. Though Canada gave us Colin Mochrie (Whose Line) who I am infintely thankful for

    “Some of the studies show that anyone expose to this game turns into violent sodomites”

    IF it wasnt so true it would be perfect 😀

    Just out of curiosity, if anyone knows this group, do any of the members go by the name “Hotbranch!”?

    Well that was funny though
    “What’s your opinion on mass effect now?”
    “I think the blue chick was hot, I’d hit that.”

    Oh and there are gods of comedy in Canda U.S. and U.K.

    Canada has these guys
    U.S. has Stephen Colbert, the Daily Show and George Carlin.
    U.K. has Monty Python

    Finally got to see it – perfect send-up.

    And to the Brits and Canucks – I’ll put anything Richard Pryor did against your best stuff, and only the Flying Circus would top it.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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. :)
