Episode 40: Last Minute Co-Host

This is what life with the DrunkenGamer can do to your mind

This week unfortunately was one of those rare weeks where Gow could not make it. I personally think he went to the fair, but who can blame him toffee apples are quite the attraction.

However the podcast must go on, I really think that the compulsion to get an episode out each week is starting to border on the obsessive. Anyway I was out of luck arranging a co-host this week, Alec was working nights & Craig had previous commitments, So I set to the task of doing a solo podcast.

I even managed to get to the release date round up before realising I had an instant co-host sat less than 20 feet away. After weeks as only being the occasional background noise I managed to get Mrs DrunkenGamer (Jo) to sit close enough to the mic to be heard. She then deliberately tried to be silly but that was exactly I was expecting.

Anyway as always links to almost all the topics covered in tonight’s show are available after the jump.

Also as always we are still taking suggestions for the mid podcast songs. So if you have a suggestion for song to be included in the podcast then put it in the comments of this post or send them too @DrunkenGamer or @D_Gow . They will be put on the short-list and you will be mentioned in the podcast itself when played

Anyway enjoy this episode of the Drinky Talky Thingy.

Also for while now listeners have been asking for a way to buy us a beer and help us get drunk for their amusement, well now we have found a way. We have set up an Amazon wish list full of beer and sugary things that you can send to us (trust us were just as funny hyper as drunk). Anyone that does so can send any message with their beer and we will say it in the show. Amazon.co.uk: Drinky Talky Thing

Episode #38: DrunkenGamer is an idiot!!

Gow has developed a near sexual fascination with Llama's, I think I may need to get him some help!

Right time for a bit of honesty – we really are not in any way, shape or form professional when it comes to these podcasts. Though for any repeat listeners this is probably common knowledge by now.

The reason I mention that in this cast is that even after 38 episodes, I am still not even sure what we called the damn thing.

For all this time in all the posts and mentions of it I have been refering to it as the Drinky Talky Thing, yet apparently verbally in the podcast itself Drinky Talky Thingy is its name.  Admittedly its only a very subtle difference, but it is important none the less.

But the good news is that from here on in I will know the correct name and refer to it as such in all forms.

Episode #36: Ranty McRanterson

It took a while but the epic MacGuyver Mic has been surpassed

I am not sure what is in this beer but I have to say that TangleFoot by the Badger brewery is certainly memorable.

Even if it is only for the reaction it had to Gow’s system – something about this beer actually turned him into Ranty McRanterson!

It didn’t matter what the story was he found something that annoyed him and he went off the deep end – strangely I think this was a good thing but only time will tell.

Bayonetta Drinking Game

Ok, sexy librarian fantasies can be kept to yourself

I have looked back over my files and realised that a few of my older drinking games that have yet to make it onto the site, strangely among them was this one for Bayonetta.

Now it may have been held back for a simple reason, it is one of my very few solo drinking games.

You see for me a drinking game is something that you should do socially, however there are occasions where I find myself sat down playing through a single player campaign and think ‘well I’m drinking anyway, I may as well make a game of it’. In those occasions I will usually try to make it a game where one player is playing and everyone else in the room drinks.

However this on was not, it truly was a solo drinking game – though I am sure it could work with the controller passing from player to player at the end of each verse.

Rules

Always a Sucker for a pretty face – Whenever you have/want to use a lollipop a price must be paid – 1 drink

Doing a good job is its own reward – at the end of a verse you have a drink, 3 for platinum, 2 for gold and 1 for anything else

Is this the way to Alfheim? – Any time you find a portal to Alfheim, have a drink

Nobody expects the Spanish inquisition! – Any time you pull off a torture move, have a drink

Every woman likes to go shopping – Each time you buy something from Rodin, have a drink (once per trip)

Now when you stick to a drink = a solid gulp of beer as I do this game will last you a while as I only classified it as a Moderate drinking game when it was initially created.

Episode #28: These things are harder solo

No matter how old he gets or what he tries, Gow will always look no more that 12 years old ...Annoying ain't it!

Well a week has passed so it is once again time for another podcast, so one has been recorded.

This week however it was just DrunkenGamer behind the mic, as the day of recording was actually Gows birthday.

As happens on these occasions, rather than leave you out in the cold without an episode of the podcast, we record it solo – the downside to this is that without someone to talk too the pocast is about half its usual length.

Now as this thing is bordering the two and a half hour mark each week a shorter one every now and again is probably a welcome break.

Episode #22: God Bless the Macgyver Mic

MacGuyver Ain't got shit on the DrunkenGamer

Well were back, by that I mean the DrunkenGamer is back. Back from Corfu and shockingly with not even the remotest sign of having a tan.

However this week was E3 week, so even though we tried to keep the podcast to a normal length such a task was clearly impossible. If we missed anything from E3 so far, we will probably mention it in next weeks podcast.

Suffice to say that this podcast is longer and more rambling than any other in Drinky Talky Thing history, rolling in at a massive 2hrs 44minutes.

We have however done our best to cover as much of E3 as has happened before this podcast went to the studio (Paddy’s living-room) as we humanly can.

As always we’re still taking suggestions for the mid podcast songs. So if you have a suggestion for song to be included in the podcast then put it in the comments of this post or send them too @DrunkenGamer or @D_Gow . They will be put on the short-list and you will be mentioned in the podcast itself when played.
