It’s Monday, and that means another blog update! Like the week before (and every other week) we’ve all been busy here at the Moonbase. But first, and most importantly, some non-Moonbase news.
If you happen to be in the Hamiliton/Toronto/Ontario-ish area this weekend, you’ll probably want to head over to Con Bravo. Not only because it’s a sweet con, but because James, Ian and Alex will be there! Here’s what they, and awesome friend of LRR, Featherweight will be doing at the con:
Friday, July 29th:
Tactical Roll Demo:
Come celebrate the recent open beta release of Featherweight’s Tactical Roll starring LoadingReadyRun’s Mercenary Solutions! Tactical Roll is a turn-based tabletop game where players take up the role of mercenaries to go on missions and work together to explore their environment, defeat combatants, and achieve objectives.
The Tactical Roll demo will be happening all weekend in the Albion room, and Featherweight will be there to run it, provided he’s not at other panels.
Come ask successful web cartoonists about their work! Featuring Featherweight, Andrew Gregoire and Lunarbaboon.
Room 314: 10:30 pm

Of course, if you’re not going to be at Con Bravo, there’s lots of great new content for you to watch this week. If you missed it, the replay of LoadingReadyLive episode 5 is online. This week, Beej takes Ian, Cori and Alex onto the Dusty Road, we discuss obsolete media formats and Kathleen’s trivia challenge returns!
Setting a bad precedent for weekly updates, there’s another episode of the GVLOG this week. Graham and I hunt Pokemon and continually get the name of the yellow gym wrong. Poor Instinct, they just get no respect.
If you still need to see more of Graham and I on adventures, episode 8 of our Japan vlog is now live. We spend all day in the scenic town of Hida-Takayama, and eat more delicious Japanese food.
And finally, the June 2016 Loading Time is now up. See behind the scenes as we put together two episodes of LoadingReadyLive, make improvements to studio A, and most importantly, eat ice cream.
