An MMORPG Ate My Baby – Issue 91

AN MMORPG ATE MY BABY

This Issue of Red Six to Golden Corral takes a look at the seedy dragon underbelly of online video gaming. This week the boys reveal truths about Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games that the streetwise call, MMORPG. They recount their own addicted histories experimenting with this divisive gaming drug.  Red Six has been informed by their legal staff that it is imperative they caution any listeners who have played MMORPG in the past that this Issue might cause nostalgia filled flashbacks to all the good times they had having fun and making friends online while traversing “fantasy landscapes”. Pulling back the curtain with hard hitting pseudo-investigative quasi-journalism, the crew discusses some of the fears of playing games like World of Warcraft (Street name: WoW) as well as Final Fantasy XI and Final Fantasy XIV.  After listening to this podcast, you find yourself wanting to roam a digital desert in search of some beefy cactaur to milk because a Quest Giver asked you to, don’t blame us. You have been warned.

A Call to Arms

A Call to Arms” is a song included on the World of Warcraft Soundtrack. The music made its debut in the cinematic trailer for Warcraft III (composed of various Warcraft III cinematic clips) and was first made available as a standalone MP3 from the official Warcraft III game site. The lyrics were written in “rough Latin”, in that they are just Latin words strung together without forming any coherent sentences, but are intended to convey ideas and sounds rather than tell a narrative.

Take One Improv And Call Me In The Morning – Issue 90

TAKE ONE IMPROV AND CALL ME IN THE MORNING

This week the crew of Red Six to Golden Corral is joined by Cory J Phillips and Aaron Michael from Take One Improv to discuss the finer points of improv comedy and being exceptionally photogenic. Take One performs at conventions and various events around the U.S. entertaining audiences with hilarious improvised games and dangerous amounts of audience participation. Having honed their craft for years the troupe skillfully delivers a memorable and raucous performance every show. Though actors through and through, Cory and Aaron are also connoisseurs of many geekdoms.  This becomes especially apparent when the Super Nintendo Classic (SNES Classic) becomes a topic of conversation as the boys look forward to the September release. Fallout, Star Fox, and good times in this Issue 90 of Red Six!

The Dark Side of Red Six: Hella Savings

After spending nearly a decade dwelling in the same cramp apartment, Heather and I recently bought a house.  Overall it has been an odd experience in “adulting” for me. In the apartment there was a carefree attitude towards appliances, roofs, lawns and plumbing. Now when walking up to the front door I find myself side eyeing the lawn and whispering a silent prayer of thanks to Crom for the neighbors whose landscaping is haphazard and overgrown. I fear my next door neighbors finding out how very little I know of mulch or what constitutes as a weed. Then once inside, my nerves twist during high winds (which we have often in Oklahoma) or whenever the toilet is flushed, fully convinced that costly repairs might be needed at any moment. I am happy for the change, but long for the days of stress free apartment living.

Buying appliances is one more area that has given me all the anxious “feels”. I love getting those “out of box deals” major retail stores offer but then I always worry that there is something seriously wrong hidden, just waiting to reveal itself days after the store’s warranty expires. I have tried more than once to cozy up to the sales person with a bump of my elbow and say “Between you and me, what’s wrong with it? I’ll still buy it but ya know.. whats the mark down in price really for?”.

This ploy absolutely never works. Not once. It actually has the opposite effect, much like a fish asking “Ok.. the worm you have on the line looks tasty.. and I’m gonna bite.. but.. is there a hook in it? Be honest.” to which the fisherman answers with a wolf’s smile “No, Mr. Fish. Nothing in that worm but more worms, even tastier worms.”.
Buying discounted appliances just smacks of modern consumer Lovecraft to me and nothing made me happier than seeing a refrigerator fit for C’thulu.
