HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ROBERT! Now that that is out of the way, onto more important things, like talking about stuff that really only matter to those of us at the mics. Matt is back this week, sharp as ever (which isn’t saying much) and it’s time for Robert to get him up to speed on the goings on of the real world. Sit back and relax as your hosts regale you with tales from diapers to Destiny, stretching from Mordor to Hyrule. It’s a brand new episode of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point!
It’s almost here! We’re just over two weeks away from international Geek Mecca, San Diego Comic Con 2012! The panels, the parties, the comics, THE SWAG!!! We can’t wait to get out on that show floor and tear it… oh yeah, we weren’t able to get passes this year. BUT WAIT! We know people who did! Join us this week as we are joined once again by The David, our Comic Con guru, as well as the oft mentioned “The Girlfriend” (aka Amanda) as we discuss some tips and tricks for surviving four days at SDCC, both inside and out. Gas up the Batmobile, pack extra underoos, and watch out for hobos (true story) as we prepare for four days of awesome geekdom on a whole new episode of Monkey in the Cage.
If you’re old like us, you remember the good old days of video gaming. One console, one controller, and usually no more than two buttons and some sort of directional device… and a gun! These days, video gaming is moving in a more active and immersive direction and it seems like the manufacturers can’t get enough of gadgets. Join us this week as we discuss the changing direction of how we enjoy our video games, from the early days of Atari to the fading promise of Virtual Reality. Holster your Light Zapper, strap on your Nunchuku, and clear the room of small pets, children and breakable valuables because it’s about to action packed in here as we talk video gaming peripherals on a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage.
