Episode 61 – Gaming With Friends vs. Strangers

Gaming as a hobby and the experiences it brings can swing from one end of the spectrum to the other.  Be it tabletop RPGs, online gaming, or a good old-fashioned roundabout with a board game, there are always inherent pros and cons when it comes to living the gamer lifestyle (or life in general).  We here at To-Ag Studios have been fortunate to have maintained a core gaming group, but what’s a solitary gamer to do when a local group isn’t available?  Join us this week as we discuss the process of gaming with strangers and offer our insights on how both enjoy the positive experiences as well as survive the not so positive ones.  So, pop those social anxiety pills, make sure your PING is decent, and definitely DON’T smell like cold-cuts and prepare yourself for a new episode of Monkey in the Cage.

Episode 56 – Japan, You Crazy!

Japan, Japanese pop-culture, crazy Japan, vending machines

Well, today is election day in the United States.  The day we finally find out how pissed we actually get if our candidate loses, how screwed we are if this proposition passes or that measure fails, and threats to move to Canada start flying faster than mashed potatoes in a cafeteria food-fight.  But, do not despair, for not only do we stop being bombarded with political ads, we here at To-Ag Studios bring you a bolt of crazy awesomeness to brighten your day.  Join us this week as we discuss our fascination with the insanity that is Japanese pop-culture!  Hold on tight to your companions pillows, because it’s about to get  crazier than a vending machine dressed as a tentacled school-girl on this week’s unintentionally (but probably) offensive episode of Monkey in the Cage!
