WHAT. IS. UP!?!?! It’s Friday and we’re coming to you hard and fast like bullet to your ear holes! Join your hosts Robert, Matt, and The David as they regale you with their tales of comic book conventions, old people punk shows, and… car buying? Yeah, we’re old, but you keep listening every week, so what does that say about you?? Slip into something nude and uncomfortable, knock back a bottle of moonshine, and let your inner ear be tongue tickled by the talented trio know as Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point!
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.
I love to create both Player Characters and Non-Player Characters as I feel that the individuals that populate game worlds are as important (if not moreso) than the game world itself. The rest of the group has verbalized many, many, many times that I can get so wrapped up in my affinity for creating that it often gets in the way of actually playing a table-top RPG. Be that as it may, I know that I am first and foremost a player, so this week, I’ve decided to share some of my favorite creations – past, present, and in limbo.
