Talking Point: Which board games do you play & which do you think we should?

It is that time of the week again, when in to get warmed up ready for the podcast we ramble about a chosen topic. Before we got onto this weeks topic we did however have to handle the comments of the Listeners/Viewers of last weeks show – Which Game in your backlog are you most looking forward to finally playing?

Here is what everyone picked for their favourites

  • Michelle Chatterton – Tiny Tina DLC for Borderlands 2, Portal 2, Dead Island, Knights of the Old Republic II
  • Martin Tattersall – Last remnant and Witcher 1
  • Trevor Bristle – Company of Heroes 2 & Bioshock Infinite
  • EvoVLog – Thomas Was Alone
  • Adam Onc – Batman Arkham City
  • FirehawkShadowChild –  Dust: An Elysian Tail, Darksiders I and II & Tomb Raider
  • Brian Inman – Portal 2
  • Misfitfan3996 – Alan Wake

As always we then went on to have a good old fashion natter about this weeks topic which we FireHawkShadowChild suggested should be Which board games do you play? Now as it turns out we do not play many of them at all, so we want to know both which you play and which you think we should play and record the outcome of.

So, What about it guys & gals?

Let us know in the comments below which is your favourite and suggest a possible question for the next Talking Point, please do as I seem bad at picking them myself. Everything is fair game, from politics to movies, music to games, hell we will even discuss our favourite womble if you so desire it.

Episode #38: DrunkenGamer is an idiot!!

Gow has developed a near sexual fascination with Llama's, I think I may need to get him some help!

Right time for a bit of honesty – we really are not in any way, shape or form professional when it comes to these podcasts. Though for any repeat listeners this is probably common knowledge by now.

The reason I mention that in this cast is that even after 38 episodes, I am still not even sure what we called the damn thing.

For all this time in all the posts and mentions of it I have been refering to it as the Drinky Talky Thing, yet apparently verbally in the podcast itself Drinky Talky Thingy is its name.  Admittedly its only a very subtle difference, but it is important none the less.

But the good news is that from here on in I will know the correct name and refer to it as such in all forms.

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 . 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 #35: Politically Memetastic

Well we got every other meme into the podcast, you dont think we would leave out the Y U NO guy did you?

I don’t want to tell you how im feeling….sorry, I have that damn Rick Astley song stuck in my head as it has been a podcast full of meme’s.

From dramatic chipmunk to all your base, I would be surprised if we missed one. when were not wasting time on old meme’s we managed to get a bit of gaming news filled in from the free-to-play conversion of Star Trek Online to the beta of Diablo III, we even found time for a bit of piss-taking at Fox News expense.

As always links to almost all the topics covered are after the jump.

Episode #20: Random Curly Hairs & Sporadic Confusion

With her as the medic, I think I would get shot a lot more often

All I have to say about tonight’s podcast is that I have no idea where the random curly hair came from. It may have been what Gow thought it was it may have been something else, further investigation was not worth considering.

Strangely for the last two weeks both myself and Gow seem to have been more affected by the beer than normal.

We seem to go off track a lot more regularly each week than we did before, no that its a bad thing obviously. Some of our more entertaining stuff is when we go off on one.

Seems that Gows friends have also lost the plot again, I’m really not sure if some of the random words he had to fit in were even real words.

Anyway we managed to fit them in and between bouts of what I will henceforth classify as ‘podcast touretts’ we also managed to cover most of what is linked below.

We’re also 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

Episode #19: Frozen Beer & Miniature Whales

Does this image really need a caption?

Moving house is a royal pain in the ass!

Not only does it require far more physical effort than I like to use in an entire year, you can never find stuff after you move .

Another problem is that it always takes so much longer than you would expect, which is why my PC is still packed away under a stack of boxes that was once my desk….I think.

Not wanting to skip a weeks podcast, we instead set ourselves up at Gow’s place.

However it did mean that once again this intro in not written right after recording, however I have listened to part of it and have to say I seem a little more drunk than normal.

Anyway that should be enough stalling, feel free to leave your suggestions for the podcast in the comments.

Drinky Talky Thing 2011 #12

Its been a while since we built a beer tower during a podcast, but Gow just felt the need this week

Another week, another episode.

We are however getting a bunch of new visitors to the site recently so I should probably explain what it is.

I am Paddy ‘DrunkenGamer’ Fellows lead game reviewer at Thirteen1 magazine. My regular co-host is Dan ‘Gow’ Gowen who T1’s graphics guru for nearly 2 years.

Each week we get together and have a few beers while we talk about a bunch of the interesting gaming news, giving our take on events. Occasionally we will also be joined by our other friends for T1 and beyond.

Obviously having a bit of beer in us we do tend to lose track from time to time, but that is always fun.

If there is anything you here in the podcast that you want a little more detail on the links to all the sources we used are included here on the page after the player.

I think that about sums it up for now, there is nothing else to say but enjoy this episode of the Drinky Talky Thing!
