Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #132: Why did Godus have to actually look Good?

We have all had this moment in Tetris
We have all had this moment in Tetris

After so many years of annoyance at Peter Molynuex, it came as quite a surprise this week when we actually found ourselves liking the guy again.

It appear that he has finally managed to make a game again that will live up to its own hype – Godus has so much potential and so many good ideas. Check out this video for details: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oKN7-BdeKzo

Apart from the fact that Molynuex is clearly back on form, we covered quite a few interesting topics this week in general.

From the fact that the 2DS may not be as mad an idea as it seems, to the fact that the fan-made timesplitters game may hit the PS4 and even the final release date of the XBox One.

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

Review: Trial of the clone (iOS)

I will finish this story no matter how many times it tries to kill me
I will finish this story no matter how many times it tries to kill me

Maybe I am just getting old, but more and more things seem to make me feel nostalgic lately. It may also have something to do with the next generation of gamers and developers rediscovering lost formats and franchises.

One such developer is TinMan Games who for the last few years had be doing a wonderful job of bringing the ‘choose your own adventure’ style books back into the public view.

I loved these as a child, I would read and reread dog-eared fighting fantasy books trying to find every possible version of the story. Sure I cheated a bit but that was part of the fun.

Their latest book has just been released and I have been reading/playing it during my commutes to and from work each day. It has taken me longer to get to the review point than it usually would though as, either this book has a lot of possible ways to die than their earlier books or I have just been making some terrible choices.

Episode #41: We really need a soundboard

Oh god bless Google! This is the second image found when searching for Gow

Another week and another podcast is recorded.

Were well into the year now and there is only one overriding fact we have learnt along the way, a soundboard must be sorted out and soon. We tried to add a single sound effect into this weeks cast and well to say it was a failure is selling it short.

However for shits and giggles we decided to Google our names during one of the songs and I am glad we did, the picture for this weeks show is the result of our search for Gow, look at it! It’s epic!

Anyway on to the podcast and 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 #31: Wake up in the morning wantin’ some breakfast

And that Gow, is how baby street sweepers are made!

Ok, some part of me knows that the VitaLite stuff will make absolutely no sense at all to our none English listeners, but it’s too much fun to pass up.

But as always that was only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to our offtopic ramblings – however we do manage to get some gaming news covered along the way from the Diablo III chaos to the bankruptcy of team bondi and even disagreement between Bethesda & notch.

As always links to almost all the topics covered are after the jump.
