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!

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.

Were both also 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

Episode #39: Still available on the iPhone 4S

And as one the Hipsters of the world felt, well you wouldn't have heard of the feeling they felt.

So, one thing we have learnt is that not even the DrunkenGamer is immune to tiredness.

This weeks podcast may be a little more scatological than normal, after a few weeks of long days and nights worth of work my brain may just be coming to its natural limits. Not that I would let that stop me recording an episode of the podcast.

I think I was not alone  in my tiredness either as, as hard as it is to tell at times, Gow also seemed even more distractable than normal.

Somehow we still managed to cover a whole pile of games from Battlefield 3 to Uncharted 3, SpaceChem to Dead Space 3…that’s a lot of threes. We even manage to find the time to pay our respects to Steve Jobs who unfortunately passed away this week.

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 .

Sometimes its not worth thinking about reality

Oh the intro to the podcast posting, why do I not write you right after recording?

Beer + Sleep = Paddy forgetting what was supposed to be mentioned in the intro text. I know there was something we agreed on, something really funny, but its gone.

So instead I will simply leave you with an interesting picture of Kirby and the podcast to listen too.

Now if you don’t mind I finally have my copy of Portal 2 and I want to get back down to playing it.

Enjoy

Only Gow could be this bad at pouring a pint

Maybe I am just getting better at picking the news stories.
Perhaps there is just more news to cover.
More likely that we start drinking before the recording starts now.

Whatever the reason these podcasts are getting longer each week. This weeks nearly broke the 2 hour mark.

For that reason we would like to hear from any of our listeners.

If you think there is anything we could do better, anything we should perhaps cut, even anything you think we should add – leave us a message in the comments.

Now without further blurb, here is this weeks podcast

You have to wonder what the person who suggested this random word was thinking

Well now I’m simply going to have to find a new level of exclamation for the fact that we have managed to get yet another Podcast out in good time.

One thing that has to be said however is that I am seriously starting to wonder about the mental state of some of Gow’s other friends. Regular listeners will know that every week he asks on Facebook for random words that he has to fit into conversation.

Week by week these have got weirder, serious last week we had to fit the word effluent into conversation. But this week we had to fit in the words, Cuntflaps, Collywobbler, Bonkleconk. I mean seriously what the hell!

Anyway as always the links to almost everything we talked about in the Podcast are below. I also should probably mention that the Podcast is available on iTunes

Updates on stories from last episode

Seems I had the wrong end of the stick with the mortal kombat story from last week, when I read that Warner had turned down the film and that filming was to start in Vancouver soon I jumped to the wrong conclusion – The Webisode series is being commisioned by Warner

As if in answer to our questioning about why Bizarre was not snapped up when it went on sale, Activision have spoken about it a little and it seems that most who came to look were only interested in the staff and not the studio

This Weeks stuff

The Zampella & West Vs Activision issue rolls on but this week see’s a slight twist in the case, it seems that Activision have gotten thier way and been able to include EA in their countersuit case – which has resulted in many fact being revealed that were previously hidden – most damning of which is that (if true) Zampella agreed to hold back the release of a DLC pack to allow Bad Company 2 a clean launch

My Favourite story of the week, someone involved on the Justin Beiber movie (seems there is such a thing) asked for permission to you 15 seconds of the mario theme tune in the movie – Nintendo said NO – what makes this funnier is that director John Chu tweeted on Saturday, “aw C’mon Nintendo! Y won’t u let us use the Mario theme for 15 secs in the @Justinbieber movie…talk about free advertising passed up. Oops.” Because Nintendo & Mario really need the help on that front

The Apple AppStore hit yet another landmark this week reaching the 10 billionth download – and it was a game that was downloaded, a free one as well

This story is actually one I wanted to mention last week but wanted to hold off on the Blizzard fanboy stuff, someone using the StarCraft 2 mod engine has started making a StarCraft MMO that got a bit of buzz from its early videos. Well it seems that in the early part of this week the videos were all pulled from youtube at the request of activision for copyright reasons.

This lead to people debating wheter the project would be able to continue, but that’s when things got really interesting. Hearing what was going on the guys at Riot Games invited the creator to their studios to meet the team and talk about a possible job.

This saga came to an end with official word from blizzard in the end stating that the video was basicly pulled as it was standard procedure, and that they have also invited the creator down to the Blizzard HQ to meet and talk to the Starcraft development team

Call of Duty: Black Ops Drinking Game

Dave! Watch the Ice Pat......Nevermind!

Ahhh, good old Call of Duty, I can always rely on a new release of this series around the Christmas season.

It makes my life easier coming up with my drinking games for the December issue so much simpler.

Unfortunately I have been told that the one I created for Modern Warfare 2 was not only a little too complex for regular use, but also potentially lethal to players with any level of skill.

So keeping that in mind I decided to make this one much simpler, if no less deadly.

Rules

There is on simple rule for this game, when you are killed you take a drink, number of drinks differs based on what you die at the hands of.

1 Drink
Any Normal Gun

2 Drinks
Sniper
Knife
Grenade
Claymore

3 Drinks
Mortar Team
Sentry Gun
Napalm Bomb
Attack Helicopter

4 Drinks
Rolling Thunder
Valkyrie Rockets
Chopper Gunner
RPG Tomahawk
Ballistic Knife
Crossbow

5 Drinks
Attack Dogs
Gunship
Care Package/ Smoke/Stun/Flash

So despite the simplification I would still classify this as a Heavy drinking game, unless your very good.
