Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #148: Recently Bought Out by Facebook for $2

Once again Simpsons called it
Once again Simpsons called it

Yes I know, another late episode of the podcast. Unfortunately this is likely to be a trend for a few months at least.

For that reason we had far too many stories lined up to cover all of them, so for that reason we pulled it back to just the ones that we thought were most interesting.

Obviously that means that we had to talk about Project Morpheus, the Oculus Rift purchase by Facebook, Molyneux’s latest ramblings & a bunch of the awards for last years games.

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

Episode #32: Unhappy Sock is Unhappy

God knows why but Gow loved this little guy

Well we may have passed the 30 podcast mark but that in no way means were going to take this any more seriously.

If we were I would have remembered that tis week was gamescom and planned ahead to have more episodes and covered more of the gaming news that came out of the event.

As it is I dont think we were faired too badly covering thing s from the news about Arkham city to the price drops of both the Wii & PS3.

More importantly There was last weeks competition – well after all that we could not pick between the top three and will give all of them with a game each at random – that’s just how generous we are

As always links to almost all the topics covered are 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 Thing.

Episode #27: Lets try this again shall we?

This, is exactly what the podcast felt like last night

So, Last week we tried to do this podcast live, and due to my retardism (having put the fan in backwards in my case causing my pc to overheat) things did not go as smoothly as we would have liked.

So for that reason we agreed that we would do it live again, its only fair as we did say we would.

There is only one word to describe the outcome however: FAIL!

We were live for the first 20 minutes of the podcast before we realised that our sound was not just intermittent – in parts it was just completely absent.

If you want to see that failure we have left it online for all to see over at DrinkyTalkyThing on USTREAM: . Fortunately we did also have the Audio recording software on the go so that at least got recorded, but even that is not without its flaws.

Firstly for some reason, Gow mac decided to record the thing in a higher bit rate than normal, which while sounding like a good thing is actually a pain. Then to cap it off it had only recorded a single channel of sound so the podcast had to be output in mono.

That’s not going to stop us releasing it though, so just bear with us and we will be back up to standard next week (we hope)

Links to almost all the topics we covered are 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 Thing.

Episode #22: God Bless the Macgyver Mic

MacGuyver Ain't got shit on the DrunkenGamer

Well were back, by that I mean the DrunkenGamer is back. Back from Corfu and shockingly with not even the remotest sign of having a tan.

However this week was E3 week, so even though we tried to keep the podcast to a normal length such a task was clearly impossible. If we missed anything from E3 so far, we will probably mention it in next weeks podcast.

Suffice to say that this podcast is longer and more rambling than any other in Drinky Talky Thing history, rolling in at a massive 2hrs 44minutes.

We have however done our best to cover as much of E3 as has happened before this podcast went to the studio (Paddy’s living-room) as we humanly can.

As always we’re 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.
