The DrunkenGamers Drinky Talky Thing Episode #3

Dad!! Is it my turn yet??

Welcome again to the ever growing circle of listeners for our strange drunken ramblings.

This is our third episode of The DrunkenGamers Drinky Talky Thing, a name that is starting to grow on me strangely enough.

This post will be updated properly tomorrow – but this once I have put the podcast live right away because Gow decided to have some fun during the podcast.

While we were recording he had people giving him suggestions of words & phrases to slide into the podcast – and he wanted to prove to everyone that he had done it.

The DrunkenGamers Drinky Talky Thing Episode #2

We thought we would take a picture of this weeks podcast drinkage

Hello again one and all, and by one and all I mean the 25 of our friends that took pity on us and gave it a listen.

Its Episode #2 of the DrunkenGamers Drinky Talky Thing – something that we really need to find a better name for. One thing that was finalised is that we will release a new episode once a fortnight.

Just to let you know, we are still experimenting with the hardware so the sound levels will get a little iffy in places and we had drunk a lot by the time we started recording (Thanks for that BBC)

However once again we sat down and had a good old natter about the topics we had noted down in the last two weeks. Below was what we were aiming to talk about.

RockBand 3 Release Date

Garriot wins the lawsuit
Richard Garriot wins his lawsuit against NCSoft http://kotaku.com/5600221/ultima-creator-richard-garriott-just-sued-a-cool-28-million-out-of-ncsoft

But as always we end up rambling in all sorts of other new and interesting and wonderful things, such as why the iPad is a waste of money, the fact that Gow thought Tails from the sonic series was a squirrel & and that 24hr news channels are nothing more than a subliminal message machine.

Without further stalling enjoy

The DrunkenGamers Drinky Talky Thing Episode #1

Welcome to the Mad House
Welcome to the Mad House

So here we are, The very first episode of our all new podcast – which for now is being called ‘The DrunkenGamers Drinky Talky Thing’

Why?

Well we actually couldn’t think of a name for it so this was Gow’s suggestion from the start of recording.

Being the first week we had no idea how this would turn out, I have to say that it doesn’t seem to have gone too badly.

We just sat down and had a good old drink and ramble about a few topics that we set aside in the week before, they were

The RealID Debacle
Blizzards attempt to take the anonymity away from its forums to deal with the forum trash that being able to hide themselves results in

Tim Schafer and his big mouth
Seems the beef between him and activision isn’t over and he called Kotic a Prick in an interview http://kotaku.com/5586641/tim-schafer-calls-activision-boss-a-total-prick
The Return of OddWorld
Just add Water, are working with Oddworld Inhabitants to bring the series back http://www.jawltd.com/?p=546

However as is always the way with us when we have had a drink our conversation wandered into many other areas including debates about Infinity Ward vs Treyarch COD’s, What we would want in the new Arkham Asylum, How older games are so much harder than we remember, and so much more.

Well I guess now would  a good time to actually give you the podcast
