Because not even Iwata knows what he is doing anymore

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #149: Long overdue and Well out of date

Because not even Iwata knows what he is doing anymore
Because not even Iwata knows what he is doing anymore

Ok yes this podcast is well out of date, we are looking forward to the day that life doesn’t keep getting in our way.

That should be soon, for now i’m afraid if you are listening to this you are listening to something that was recorded 3 weeks ago.

To make matters worse it was recorded after a few weeks off due to Paddy being out the country.

That said we debated crowdfunding, talked about the fact that being crap at gaming makes people more violent than the game content, talked about peoples unplayed steam collections and even talked about the 1:1 scale Minecraft map of Denmark.

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

However on the plus side, it does mean you get a extra long an even more news packed so that normal as we had two weeks worth of stories to deal with.

And what a fortnight! First there was Blizzcon and all the news about Heroes of the Storm, HeartStone and Warlords of Draenor.

Then there is the Platform Expo happening right here in Hull, which all gets to be capped off by the fact that we are in the launch week of the PS4 with the XBox One next week.

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

Episode 40: Last Minute Co-Host

This is what life with the DrunkenGamer can do to your mind

This week unfortunately was one of those rare weeks where Gow could not make it. I personally think he went to the fair, but who can blame him toffee apples are quite the attraction.

However the podcast must go on, I really think that the compulsion to get an episode out each week is starting to border on the obsessive. Anyway I was out of luck arranging a co-host this week, Alec was working nights & Craig had previous commitments, So I set to the task of doing a solo podcast.

I even managed to get to the release date round up before realising I had an instant co-host sat less than 20 feet away. After weeks as only being the occasional background noise I managed to get Mrs DrunkenGamer (Jo) to sit close enough to the mic to be heard. She then deliberately tried to be silly but that was exactly I was expecting.

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 .

Episode #33: DRM free and with Llamas for all!

Llama, Llama, Duck

I always seem to come up with some excuse about why I can’t remember what was talked about less that 20 minutes ago – this week I am simply going to blame Gow.

He insisted on playing the damn Llama song right after we finished recording and now all that I can think of seeing to revolve around that song!

fortunately though, thanks to all the links below i know that we covered a great many topics such as the DRM issues of From Dust to the OnLive codes in Deus Ex: Human Revolution. We even managed to squeeze in some World of Warcraft, Diablo 3 and Battlefield 3.

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

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
