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 Knightquiknkold, I can't speak for James, but trying to silence a critic by blocking its financial supporters is a censorious activity. It may not be the same as direct censoring, but its ends are the same.10/02/2014 - 8:18am
E. Zachary KnightMecha, I found neither the title nor the content of Gamasutra's Gamers are Dead article inflammatory. But I guess that just means I was the target audience for it.10/02/2014 - 8:16am
prh99@james_fudge Agreed, but then again this group doesn't exactly have high ethical standards or even a grasp of hypocrisy.10/02/2014 - 8:14am
MechaTama31Are... Are you guys suggesting that the content of the "Gamers are over" article is *less* inflammatory than the title?10/02/2014 - 7:58am

InfophileAnd the headlines-only part is particularly depressing, as in most sites, they're not even written by the author of the article. So the author has to field tons of complaints about what the editor decided to title their article.10/02/2014 - 6:25am
InfophileAE: Most people don't. This has been tested - I remember an article slipped in a request in the second-to-last paragraph to use the word "banana" in your comment if you read that. It took over 50 posts for a banana.10/02/2014 - 6:24am
james_fudgeprh99: Whether you agree with the article or not, fighting alleged censorship with censorship is hella lame10/02/2014 - 4:27am
james_fudgewhoever made that decision at Intel will regret it later on down the road. Boycotts are tricky business.10/02/2014 - 4:26am
prh99The unflattering characterization "They don’t know how to dress or behave." & "‘Games culture’ is a petri dish of people who know so little about how human social interaction..." probably didn't help.10/02/2014 - 1:52am
prh99Probably not many as it was purely a vindictive move. The headline alone was plenty of ammo, but for those that did read and complain..10/02/2014 - 1:42am
Andrew EisenI wonder how many of those who complain about that article actually read past the headline.10/02/2014 - 1:37am
