Its Super Effective!!

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #137: Is Everybody Sitting Comfortably?

Its Super Effective!!
Its Super Effective!!

While it may not sound important to most people, this week saw a bit of a breakthrough. After 3 years of recording Gow finally has a proper chair!

When we started recording the only spare seat I had for him was a broken office chair with no back, and for some reason I never got round to finding him a replacement till now. I wonder how long it will take before he gets his own mic?

However you are here for the gaming news and on that front we had quite a lot to go over after taking last week off. From the Activision buyout finally completing, Wii U sales tripling after a price drop, bad news about both the PS4 & XBox One’s hardware compatibility, Blizzard announcing Heart of the Storm & Even a bit of a laugh at The Sun.

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

Good News, Gow has recovered from his Man-Flu so we are back behind the mic as usual.

We may however have to make weeks off more common, I don’t think we have recorded an episode quite this distracted in quite some time.

In between completely losing the plot we did manage to cover some of the gaming news. From the rumours on the Steam Machines Prototypes, to the confirmation that Sonic will in Smash Brothers & even the news on a whole pile of Legal Battles.

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

Drinky Talky Thing 2011 #16

The cake is definitely not a lie! I know, me and the wife made it this week

Well this episode of the Podcast was actually rather a close call.

On Monday the power supply committed Seppuku and put my PC out of commission.

Thankfully though Gow, being the supergeek he is, happened to have a spare power supply lying around that I have temporarily borrowed until me new one shows up.

As a result the sound may well be a little out in this episode as we only finished putting the machine back together less than 10 minutes before recording – We literally booted he machine up and  started audition.

Anyway, as always enjoy the podcast and let us know what you think

Vikings of Thule

The Drinky Talky Thing Podcast, Episode #6 – Part 1

Vikings of Thule
The free beer that we got from Vikings of Thule, Sponsors of Episode 6

Yay, after a long delay were finally back.

Yes I know its been a while since the last episode of the Podcast, but unfortunately we cannot stop people getting ill.

Between the three of us, every time we set a new date for recording one of us would be put out of commission by man-flu, epic scale hangovers or just sheer exhaustion.

However we finally got together again and in order to put us back on track we have recorded a double length episode.  As a result some of this stories may be a bit older and obviously the longer recording increases the alcohol content had an impact.

Because of how long it is, I have split it into two parts – So here is Part one for you to enjoy.

Play

Part 2 is available Here when your ready to listen to the rest.

Now we also have Two official sponsors to give shouts out  – I’ll mention one in each post.

Sponsor #1

The cool guys at Gogogic (http://www.gogogic.com/) who have released a facebook MMO called Vikings of Thule (http://www.facebook.com/vikingsofthule). They sent us a new poster for the office, as well as some beers called ‘Viking’ & ‘Thule’ that we enjoyed during recording.
