Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #114: Still finding new ways to fail!

Wii U Has no Game
I really am starting to regret purchasing this thing

I guess I should explain the title a bit.

Regular listeners will be aware that about a month ago we started releasing an Uncut version of the podcast on YouTube.

Now being that we are cheep while we were experimenting with this we are using whatever hardware is to hand.

That means that the video is being captured on a Microsoft life-cam  with tweaked firmware and a opensource video capture program. It’s the only way it would work.

Why is that an issue? Well, there is a tick-box on the video software that activates audio capture, guess what I forgot to tick? As a result our Uncut video was completely recorded in silence.

Thankfully the audio for the normal Podcast recorded properly so it will be salvageable, but all of our rambling about SimCity, our bitching about the Wii U, our discussion on the Pluto and even our positive words about Molynuex were all missing.

Anyway all that and much more in this episode of the Drinky Talky Thingy.

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #113: If we had Breasts would we have more Subscribers?

Scarlet Blade, Game for the 15 year old male unable to find real porn
Scarlet Blade, A Game for the 15 year old male unable to find real porn

Well it seems to work for video games still so why the hell should we not take advantage as well?

This weeks gaming news was actually very interesting indeed.

People got fired for what in the end turned out to be sarcasm, but when you’re a Creative Director at Microsoft you really should know better.

EA were voted the worst company in America for the second year running, once again proving public polls are a complete waste of time

There are a few stories related to the imbalance between male and females within the games industry, from wages to imagery & even their exclusion from certain aspects that might help explain a few things.

Anyway all that and much more in this episode of the Drinky Talky Thingy.

Every week we record a podcast which gets uploaded to iTunes in audio form, we decided to also record the whole thing for YouTube as well. However what is in the video is the raw, uncut version of the show. All the distractions, All the wandering off mid conversation & even what goes on during the mid podcast song.

Congratulations Craig on your wedding day, all the best for you and Emma for the future

This episode of the Podcast is dedicated to Craig (aka TurkeySaladBoy) & Emma who, by the time you are reading this, will have tied the knot.

Everyone involved with 8bitalliance wishes them every happiness in their future together, you two deserve each other.

As a result of the pending more important event today this weeks podcast is a little shorter than previous recordings – I deliberately imposed a time-limit, more to stop me drinking as much as usual than the amount we talk.

However as you will hear we still managed to get quite a lot of stories covered. From the Closure of LucasArts and layoffs at Dark Moon Studio to the fact the EA’s idea of Freemium is wrong and the fact that Blizzard now seem to be fixated E-Sports.

Anyway all that and much more in this episode of the Drinky Talky Thingy.

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #111: Cake-Pops and Old Tom

It seems at Easter PacMan gets a taste for something other than pills.
It seems at Easter PacMan gets a taste for something other than pills.

It seems that like last week something has made a return to the podcast this week – My lack of memory of the night before!

I am going to blame that on the Old Tom, that stuff was tasty but boy was it strong. However it could also be the fact that all of my beers last night were different.

Anybody watching the Video on the YouTube Channel will get to see the whole collection as I think we showed them all to the camera.

However what your really here for is the gaming news. This weeks links tell me that we talked about Infinite Crisis the new DC MOBA, We had a bit of a rant about the WiiU and insulted some people on the topic & even discussed an RPG made in Excel.

Anyway all that and much more in this episode of the Drinky Talky Thingy.
