Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #138: Soon to Release a Range of BogRolls

I am not entirely sure I want to be eating Marios bits

There sure is a lot of gaming themed crap out there, and if we see one more Angry Birds product we may just lose the plot.

That would however require us having had a plot in the first place but that is just semantics.

On this weeks podcast in between our regular rambling about anything but gaming some of the stories we covered in this show were doozies.

From bad times for Sony as they announced some missing features for the PS4 and a less than stellar launch lineup, to the face that the NVidea Shield now has a console mode to make it a solid steambox rival. We even got reminded that we were getting old by the 10th anniversary of Trackmania.

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

Drinky Talky Thing 2011 #2


I channel the spirit of MacGyver far too often!

It’s a new years miracle!!

We have actually managed to record two episodes of the Podcast within a week of each other. Ok, so two weeks does not a regularly schedule Podcast make, but its an improvement on once every now and again.

So this week we actually tried a new audio set-up, as I wanted to try and reduce the issues with the sound variation we had before. This was caused by us forgetting we were holding mics and moving them about too much, were only hobbyist afterall. So this one I wanted to try and eliminate that by putting the mics in a static location which, in leu of real stands, turned out to be cellotaped too my amBX kit.

Anyway as always, enjoy the cast and below are the links and videos mentioned.

The Drinky Talky Thing Podcast, Episode #7

I've taken so many of these now I'm starting to rattle

Well here we are again – another Podcast where we have to apologise for the delay.

Despite the fact that we all live so close together, finding those moments where all of our schedules have a gap has proved difficult.

As if to prove that fact, this Podcast is missing Craig Albeck is missing, being that he was on his way back from a micro-payment convention in London.

What you will also notice is different in this episode is that I am considerably more drunk than normal. This is a result of the fact that I have been on painkillers for back problems, and this is the first time in 2 weeks I have had anything to drink.

On that note I’ll let you listen to Me & Gow, Try and stay on topic.

As a bit of a warning as this was another catchup episode, it is once again over 2hrs long, but this time it seems like it would be better not to split it.

Oh and if you make it through the whole two hours and happen to be ginger, I apologise in advance 🙂
