running sucksIf there’s two things we don’t do here at MITC Productions, it’s run and fact check.  This is probably pretty obvious for the regular listeners, as they allow Robert and Matt to speak winded words into their microphones on a weekly (usually) basis.  For the causal listener, this week is no different.  Join your hosts as they discuss the things that don’t really matter to most of this world, at least this week.  Rarely correct and usually awkward, it’s time for another episode of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point.

Episode 90 – Villains: Part Ni

The-Joker-Villain-Demotivator

No one ever grows up wanting to be the bad guy.  It’s always “be nice” and “do good deeds” and “don’t break windows and set ant hills on fire,” but c’mon!  Where’s the fun in all of that?  More and more often, villains in all genres and media seem to be getting the spotlight, and sometimes even outshining their do-gooder counterparts in the process. Join us this week as we revisit and expand on our original conversation about the bad guys we love to hate.  So butch up that resumé, practice your piloting skills, and stock up on eye patches and antibiotics as you settle in for a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!

Are Sci-Fi Settings the Best Settings?

Star Wars, Death Star, Roleplaying, RPG, Gaming, Sci-Fi Settings

Episode 34 – Gaming Peripherals

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.

First Official “Prometheus” Clip now Online

If you are excited for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus (as you should be), then you will definitely want to check out the new official clip to hit the internet today.

While it’s not too action packed, chances are this is the last bit of normalcy the crew of the Prometheus is going to have before the all undoubtedly die horribly gruesome deaths… just a hunch.

Prometheus hits theaters June 8th, so if this clip isn’t enough to satisfy your nerd-lust, pick up some copies of the original Alien films to hold you over until then!
