Useless Drivel – Lightning in a Metal Gear Bottle

Useless Drivel Murder DogNow, we aren’t the best podcast on the block. There are those out there that have these things called “structure” and “organization” and others that engage in “fact-checking” and “professionalism” but, hey, that’s just not our style. What we do have is an unflinching dedication to (almost) always release an episode every week, come Hell, high-water, or babies. So, join your hosts this week as they discuss hipsters, the homeless, murder-dogs, and a little thing we like to call Gateway 2015! It’s good times the size of Jaegers vs. Kaijus, so sync up in the drift, cause it’s about to get rough on a brand new episode of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point!

My Top 6 Gaming Moments of 2012

Critical Hit Bears

2013 is only about a week old, so I feel it’s still young enough in the year to reflect on my personal top five gaming moments of the year past.  2012 was surely filled with plenty of gaming – from board games and video games to RPGs and podcasts – so I thought I should give a nod to those out there that made last year one of (if not THE) best years in gaming I’ve had.  The following are in no particular order.

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!
