So, after growing up a die-hard Star Wars fan and loving all manner of science fiction movies my entire life, I find it a personal tragedy that I have yet to really sink my teeth into a Sci-Fi tabletop RPG. Sure, I’ve played any number of video games with a Sci-Fi slant (Mass Effect has been good to me) and have even rolled up some Star Wars Second Edition characters in the past (they were AWESOME), but the cards have not been in my favor of getting the chance to play what is probably the best genre of roleplaying settings.
Have you ever had one of those days where you just feel like doing whatever the hell you want, talk about whatever the hell you want, and listen to pop music? We do too! Join us this week as we chit-chat on mic, field some questions from our listeners, and have a good old free-for-all. We’re talking everything from sci-fi to questionable adventures in drinking on a brand new and unstructured episode of Monkey in the Cage!
If you’re old like us, you remember the good old days of video gaming. One console, one controller, and usually no more than two buttons and some sort of directional device… and a gun! These days, video gaming is moving in a more active and immersive direction and it seems like the manufacturers can’t get enough of gadgets. Join us this week as we discuss the changing direction of how we enjoy our video games, from the early days of Atari to the fading promise of Virtual Reality. Holster your Light Zapper, strap on your Nunchuku, and clear the room of small pets, children and breakable valuables because it’s about to action packed in here as we talk video gaming peripherals on a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage.
