Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #146: Watching Breaking Bad in the Wrong Order

All hail the great Helix Fosil
All hail the great Helix Fosil

I know..I know..The news in this episode can barely be called such!

I mean we were stretching the definition as it was, but this show was recorded after two weeks, and then has sat on my harddrive for a further fortnight due to work.

However this stupidity pales into comparison of the Older Gowen brother who when watching Breaking Bad managed to buy and start watching the final series before watching the fifth series.

After we were done laughing at that stupidity we got on to the task at hand, we did some drinking and we spoke about gaming. On the list of topics for the show were Twitch plays Pokemon, The Rise and Fall of Flappy Bird, Mario Kart 8 News and even a little bit of World of Warcraft managed to slip in there.

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

Episode #46: The return of the TurkeySaladBoy

Well another week another episode of the podcast and boy was it a good one – after months of chasing him to come back and join us, we were finally rejoined by the legendary TurkeySaladBoy.

It is always a good laugh to get Craig involved because he brings such a  different take on gaming, being the only one of us that really still works in the industry. It also gives us a new take on some of our old arguments.

Oh, and the reason the podcast picture this week is actually a video – well part way through the show I messed about with the Just Dance 3: Autodance App and made one of the most epic videos of Gow & Craig you are ever likely to see.

Were all still growing Moustaches for Movember so you want to help us in our good cause then you can donate to us for our madness at http://mobro.co/DrunkenGamer.

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

Not entirely sure what PETA were thinking with this advert - I want meat more not less now!

Episode #45: Late to the Party, but still lots of fun!

Not entirely sure what PETA were thinking with this advert - I want meat more not less now!
Not entirely sure what PETA were thinking with this advert - I want meat more not less now!

As you know there would normally be an intro here that was in some way related to something that we said during the podcast however this week we ran late recording, and I had visitors on Friday night – So as I have slept twice since then what was said during the podcast is a complete blur too me.

All I can be certain of is that we talked gaming news, took the piss out of each other, fucked up at some point during recording and got drunk. Seeing as I remember the hangover Friday morning the last one is a certainty.

This has nothing to do with the podcast, it just seemed like a good image

Drinky Talky Thing 2011 #7

This has nothing to do with the podcast, it just seemed like a good image

Well I would never have thought it possible if I had not actually experienced it.

Making a long overdue return to the podcast is our old friend Craig (aka TurkeySaladBoy) , seriously his presence has been missed.

I will in advance apologise for the slight audio issues in the second half of the podcast, so used to having only two people here for the recording I seem to have pulled the microphone too far forward.

This has resulted in a slightly echoed Gow for the second half of the podcast but he’s still understandable even when he tries to throw in his random Dutch words.

At this point in the intro however I am instantly regretting the choice of my podcast image for this episode as it seems there is a lot of space to fill in to make the podcast player fit into the post naturally.

But then that’s one of the good things about this site – I can admit when I messed up, so without out further stalling here is this weeks podcast.

Updates on stories from the last episode

The Fox news debacle rolls on still – first with yet another expert that fox asked in the bulletstorm story has come forward with the answers they provided, this guy was completely ignored but gave some damn fine answers.
http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2011/02/10/the-fox-news-debacle-techsavvy-update/

Then it just gets silly, Fox makes another news item about the game not to fix its statement but to push its agenda further and to cap it all insinuates Rock, Paper, Shotgun has not been telling the truth.
