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!
Denizens of the internetz! It is us, your masters and overlords, here to miseducate and misinform the seething masses of maybe dozens of listeners with our tomfoolery and ineptitude. Bow down before our inadequacies and pay heed to the drivel that your hosts Robert and Matt are about to spout! The uselessness of of conversation will enthrall you and leave you wanting so, so much more. Dedicate your ears and empty your minds, because we’re about to fill them with all sorts of… stuff…
What has overpriced food, smells funky, and is full of memories? No… it’s not that, it’s OrcCon 2014! Join Robert and Matt this week as they recap their gaming adventures at the first Strategicon event of 2014. Sure, the change in hotels wasn’t for the better and yeah, there is no going “nose deaf” fast enough, but that did not deter your intrepid hosts from getting their game on! Plug in and check out as you are regaled by your hosts and their super awesome 4-hour alternate realities; you might actually not regret that you did. Always awkward, somewhat listenable, and just a tad bit geeky, it’s a new episode of Useless Drivel, the podcast without a point!
No one ever grows up wanting to be the bad guy. It’s always “be nice” and “do good deeds” and “don’t break windows and set ant hills on fire,” but c’mon! Where’s the fun in all of that? More and more often, villains in all genres and media seem to be getting the spotlight, and sometimes even outshining their do-gooder counterparts in the process. Join us this week as we revisit and expand on our original conversation about the bad guys we love to hate. So butch up that resumé, practice your piloting skills, and stock up on eye patches and antibiotics as you settle in for a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
We all have our favorite movies. We also all have out favorite TV shows. Every once in a while, we even get to see our favorite movies become TV shows, and then we get all excited and it’s like “ERMAHGERDIT’STHABESTTHINGEVER” and then FOX goes and cancels it…. Join us this week as we discuss some of the movies we feel should get a shot at their own air time on the “boob tube” (even a mini-series would be nice)! Get the doctor to fill out your paperwork, dry those Whovian tears, and definitely watch out for 8-year-olds as you kick back and listen to a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
So, way, way, WAY back in Episode 8, we here at To-Ag Studios talked Heroes and Villains. Seeing as the Monkeys still had their podcasting training wheels on, we approached two very broad and interesting topics with the reckless abandon of Hulk and Wolverine on a bender. So now, 68 weeks later, we have reconvened our Monkey council in order to once again discuss the hero figure and why we love them. Draw down your cowls, make some therapy appointments, and get your butt out of retirement as were headed for round 2 to discuss Heroes (NOT the show) on a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
