Every so often, a movie comes along that speaks to each and every one of us in some way or another. Whether or not this is a good thing, well, that all depends on the viewer. In the case of Zero Charisma, there was most definitely a resonance throughout To-Ag Studios, in more ways than one. Join us this week as we review the recently released dark comedy which speaks to a certain part of the gamer inside all of us. So, grab your donuts and tacos, get yourself a sweet hipster tattoo, and give as good as you get at the gaming table as you prepare for a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
HOLY CRAP! We did it! We made it to 100 episodes without missing a beat! That rates up there with great historical geek events like the birth of Gary Gygax, the 1st issue of Batman, and the sale of the first Nintendo combined! Okay, not really, but all things considered, it’s a pretty damn big accomplishment for us here at To-Ag Studios. Join us this week as we keep on keeping on talking about the geeky stuff we’ve been up to as well as reflecting on what 100 episodes has meant to us. So, make some new friends, watch out for raging teenage hormones, and definitely be careful who you trust (around the gaming table) as you prepare for a milestone episode of Monkey in the Cage!
He’s the guy making me spend GenCon funds three months ahead of time.
So, if you’ve been listening to the show, following me on Twitter, or read any of my articles, you’ve probably figured out that I’ll be going to GenCon this year. That being said, it would be in my best interest to squirrel away as much cash as possible and definitely NOT spend it on Kickstarter… but what can I say? Awesomely epic opportunities of gaming uniqueness only come along like every few weeks, so I have to take advantage of them, right? Well, this week, I got in on the absolute best/worst gaming Kickstarters ever – Epic Level Entertainment’s World’s Worst Dungeon Crawl! Check out the official press-release after the jump.
The summer blockbuster movie season has officially begun! Last week’s release of Iron Man 3 has already seen it reach the second highest opening take behind Avengers, but, as always, not everyone is impressed (such is the way of us geeks)! Join us this week as we discuss the movie, Robert Downey Jr., and all manner of geeky and Iron-y Man-y (yeah, it’s a thing) goodness. Charge up your Unibeam, polish up the Mark XLII Armor, and get ready for some holiday cheer as we talk Iron Man 3 on a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
In the time that we here at To-Ag Studios have been recording, we’ve taken our fair share of shots to the chin, as individuals and as a group. This week, not only did we take that shot again, it was followed by a shin-kick to the groin and a wet-willy to boot. Join us this week as we take an errant trip down the rabbit hole resulting in a questionable experience with Thac0: The Movie. Take inventory of your dice, be sure to steam-clean your gaming cloak, and whatever you do… don’t hassle Neil Gaiman as you prepare for a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
If you’re a gamer and a geek, then undoubtedly you’ve amassed a grand collection of wondrous treasures, from boxes and books to cartridges and discs. While some of these items may be considered mundane or even relics of geek ages long past, we all know that it goes against our very nature to part with such great gifts of enjoyment, even if we’ve never taken the shrink wrap off yet! Join us this week as we delve into our geek closets and discuss games of all types – purchased, played, and otherwise. Clear off the table, charge up those controllers, and for God’s sake read some damn instructions as you prepare for a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
