Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #125: We need to learn to leave well enough alone

I think part of the reason we still only have a small listener ship is down to our lack of consistency.

Every time we get into a bit of a groove our curiosity gets the better of us and we want to try something new. This week it was a new recording in a new location, well if you can call the sofa a new place.

This came with a downside we didn’t think about – timekeeping. We ended up recording for a lot longer than we intended, but worry not this is not a return to the 2hr long shows.

But at least the extra meant we could get a lot covered in this show, from pro gamers being classified as athletes by the us visa system, the daily mail sinking to an all new low, Ubisoft not wanting to start a new IP unless it can be franchised and even the news of the Valve Pipeline project.

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

Episode #29: Unrealistic Expectations

Marks & Spencer's haven't photo-shopped that woman honestly - she always has floating head syndrome

Ok I will readily admit, we finished recording Episode 29 less that 45 minutes ago as I write this intro – but were you to quiz me on exactly which topics we covered along the way I would not be able to completely answer.

I mean at some point we were taking the piss out of Marks and Spencer adverts (or just drooling at the boobies contained within) later I remember mention of Magical Trevor.

Anyway despite our off topic ramblings, which seemed to be numerous during this episode, we did actually manage to fit in a lot of gaming news. From Arkham City to  VVVVV, it all got a mention somewhere along the lines – in fact 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 #28: These things are harder solo

No matter how old he gets or what he tries, Gow will always look no more that 12 years old ...Annoying ain't it!

Well a week has passed so it is once again time for another podcast, so one has been recorded.

This week however it was just DrunkenGamer behind the mic, as the day of recording was actually Gows birthday.

As happens on these occasions, rather than leave you out in the cold without an episode of the podcast, we record it solo – the downside to this is that without someone to talk too the pocast is about half its usual length.

Now as this thing is bordering the two and a half hour mark each week a shorter one every now and again is probably a welcome break.

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)
