So many Wii U jokes, So little time

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #98: Trying desperately not to mention a certain new toy

So many Wii U jokes, So little time
So many Wii U jokes, So little time

I really did try but I am not sure how effective I was.

There is much more to talk about this week than just the new console, particularly as most of the news regarding that console came out when it was released in America.

The first of which is something that we have been waiting to announce for a couple of years now as well!.

The UK government has taken their asses out of their heads for long enough to see that the games industry needs a bit of help to grow in the UK. As well as that there is more bad news about End of Nations, interesting happenings on several Kickstarter project, more news on the THQ bundle and lots and lots of ranting which is much easier to do if there is more than one person.

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

What the hell happened to the games industry? So many lawsuits!

Drinky Talky Thingy Episode #67: It’s a wonder that we have not been sued yet

What the hell happened to the games industry? So many lawsuits!
What the hell happened to the games industry? So many lawsuits!

Something strange is going on in the gaming world.

Everybody seems to be suing someone about something and responding to that with counter-suits. The amount of insults we throw at the people we talk about in these shows I really am surprised we have not had a lawsuit land at our feet yet.

We did get one noise pollution order but we managed to shake that off by agreeing to never sing again.

Anyway in this show we looked at the evidence behind some Command & Conquer rumours, we deliberated over whether the consoles should charge more for their services, we look at the facts regarding Nintendo’s No-Show at this years GamesCom and declared Dark Souls for the PC Guilty of being absolutely retarded.

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

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 #36: Ranty McRanterson

It took a while but the epic MacGuyver Mic has been surpassed

I am not sure what is in this beer but I have to say that TangleFoot by the Badger brewery is certainly memorable.

Even if it is only for the reaction it had to Gow’s system – something about this beer actually turned him into Ranty McRanterson!

It didn’t matter what the story was he found something that annoyed him and he went off the deep end – strangely I think this was a good thing but only time will tell.

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 .
