Its Super Effective!!

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #137: Is Everybody Sitting Comfortably?

Its Super Effective!!
Its Super Effective!!

While it may not sound important to most people, this week saw a bit of a breakthrough. After 3 years of recording Gow finally has a proper chair!

When we started recording the only spare seat I had for him was a broken office chair with no back, and for some reason I never got round to finding him a replacement till now. I wonder how long it will take before he gets his own mic?

However you are here for the gaming news and on that front we had quite a lot to go over after taking last week off. From the Activision buyout finally completing, Wii U sales tripling after a price drop, bad news about both the PS4 & XBox One’s hardware compatibility, Blizzard announcing Heart of the Storm & Even a bit of a laugh at The Sun.

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

NightCrawler & Gambit, certainly the best choice as X-Men

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #135: Dancing Goombas & Steam Consoles

NightCrawler & Gambit, certainly the best choice as X-Men

So this week we felt that we really didn’t learn much at all in the show as far as the weeks gaming news is concerned – Both myself and Gow seemed to be in a Ranting Mood.

This show however was recorded before the final announcement from Steam, so we have a good old time trying to guess that.

Aside from that, we did manage to discuss the Steam OS & Steam Machines while also finding time to Rant about Mario, Nick Clegg, World of Warcraft, Sony & GTA Online.

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

Farewell Hiroshi Yamauchi. While we may never have met you, you profoundly affected all of our lives

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #134: Farewell Hiroshi Yamauchi

Farewell Hiroshi Yamauchi. While we may never have met you, you profoundly affected all of our lives
Farewell Hiroshi Yamauchi. While we may never have met you, you profoundly affected all of our lives

It is never a good week when any member of the industry passes, but I can imagine fewer that have had quite the impact on as many gamers as Hiroshi Yamauchi.

While he stepped down as Head of Nintendo a few years ago, without him they may well still be making trading cards.

Obviously though that was not the only news in gaming circles this week, and the game always continues.

This week we talked about the Rumoured Steam Box, the PS3 to PS4 upgrade Program, the end of Warhammer Online & obviously also some GTA V chatter because it would be impossible not to.

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

This weeks shows are fueled by the beers of the HardKnott Brewery - boy are they good beers

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #128: Fueled by the HardKnott Brewery

This weeks shows are fueled by the beers of the HardKnott Brewery - boy are they good beers
This weeks shows are fueled by the beers of the HardKnott Brewery – boy are they good beers

Every now and again we try to mix up the beers that we drink, bringing in some microbreweries to widen our outlook.

This week we drank the beers of the HardKnott Brewery, which were quite the surprise. Each one caught us off guard on the first tasting but then grew on us very nicely.

You might notice that this is a very MMO heavy week news wise, the reason for this is twofold. First there was actually a lot of MMO News, but also my RSS news feeder was offline for two days to move servers and I may have missed some stuff as a result.

So this week we obviously covered some World of Warcraft news & The announcements for EverQuest Next & Landmark but we did manage some normal news. From the X-Box One’s unboxing and DVR news, to the fact that Nintendo have no intention of going third party and even news of a possible PS4 bundle.

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