Useless Drivel has braved another gaming convention and lived to tell the tale! Three times a year, the guys visit their local gaming convention in order to cram in as much gaming as possible over the course of a few days. While some cons are definitely better than others, this one was hands down the best! Join your hosts Matt and Robert this week as they recount their various RPG adventures during Gamex 2015. From epic heroism and awesome storytelling to double crosses and idiotic Kobolds, this con had it all. Sit back and relax, and keep an ear to the background noise for cultural enlightenment, it’s a brand new episode of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point!
One of the best parts of a new year, besides failing miserably at your resolutions by the second week of January, is the start of a whole new convention season. Whether you are rabidly anticipating the “Geek Mecca” that is San Diego Comic-Con or like to keep it low-key and hit up your local favorites, we here at the Podcast love conventions, large and small. From awesome (to awesomely bad) cosplay to getting mad-dogged by The Incredible Hulk himself, Lou Ferrigno, hitting the convention circuit and reporting back to our listeners is definitely a top priority for the podcast monkeys this year.
Join us this week as we welcome our most seasoned Con-goer and close personal friend, The David from the Greenlandic Powerpop band The Maxies, as we recollect some highlights from convention trips past. Grab your daily passes and stack up your swag while we dive into this week’s look at the convention experience. It’s both chaotic and fun, just like the convention floor!
