Well, it’s June 2016, and unfortunately for you, we’re still alive and kicking! Join your hosts Matt, Robert and The David this week as they discuss the random events and poor decisions that make up their daily lives. From Pokemon and Magic Mushrooms to Horror and Setting Oneself up for Failure, this week has got a little bit of everything, bust most importantly, it has dice from Easy Roller Dice! So, settle in, roll some crits, and prepare to join your spirit animal, because it’s about to get weird on a brand new episode of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point!
Each and (almost) every week, Matt and Robert get together behind the mics, and talk nonsensically and sometimes nasally about all manner of things that our meager following of listeners already know about. That being said, it’s time for a brand new episode! Sure, we don’t fact-check, have wild speculations, and more often than not are just dead wrong, but none of that matters. What matters is you, the listener, and your dedicated masochistic ways! So sit right down and plug right in for a brand new episode of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point!
2013 is only about a week old, so I feel it’s still young enough in the year to reflect on my personal top five gaming moments of the year past. 2012 was surely filled with plenty of gaming – from board games and video games to RPGs and podcasts – so I thought I should give a nod to those out there that made last year one of (if not THE) best years in gaming I’ve had. The following are in no particular order.
So this week a release date trailer was hoisted upon the Internet by the kind folks at Gearbox Software. While everyone has known since Borderlands was released there would be a sequel, we finally have a date (in the far off future(Stupid September 18th, 2012)) to anxiously await more insane guns and claptrap one-liners.
Borderlands was one of those random games that I picked up on a lark, then had trouble putting it down once I got started. The only way I can describe the feeling of playing the game is that it is incredibly repetitive, but I can’t stop playing it, it is too much fun.
Gearbox has become one of the few developers that I will buy anything they produce (within reason). They consistently put out high quality products and go out of their way to show appreciation to their fans. How many companies would go out of their way to write a eulogy for a fan that died of cancer, then get one of their voice actors to recite the eulogy, and put put said fan in Borderlands 2?
Borderlands 2 will be a day one buy from me and hopefully there are a few other PS3 owners out there who would like to get together and destroy the inhabitants of Pandora with me.
In this day and age of online gaming and social media, we geeks have it sweet in the ability to jump on our PC’s or consoles with people from around the world and wreak havoc upon AI foes or one another in any number of settings no matter what time of day it is. Whether it’s banding together for a raid in World of Warcraft, or failing miserably to save the world in a game of Pandemic, one of the best gaming experiences a gamer can have is when teamwork with you closest friends brings sweet, sweet victory or amusingly humiliating defeat.
Join us this week as we shotgun blast your ears with our numerous (and we mean numerous!) experiences with Co-Op gameplay. From video games to board games to tabletop RPG’s, we hit it fast, hard, and chaotic, just like Leeroy Jenkins himself. Plug in and listen up, because the Co-Op memories just keep coming!
