Everybody do the dinosaur

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #133: Still Waiting for a Diablo III Offline Mode for PC

Everybody do the dinosaur
Everybody do the dinosaur

Well it certainly has been a while since this happened, but technical faults abound this week.

Apparently when the battery in your camera is running low, it is advised to either charge it before recording or Plug the damn thing in.

That means that for a decent chunk of the show there is no video footage. Instead at the request of Killer Bits you will get a dancing dinosaur.

Despite those issues we still managed to cover the latest news on the PS4, to laugh at some Activision press bullshit and even let Paddy have yet another rant about Diablo III

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

Coffee!! Coffee!! Coffee!! Coffee!! Coffee!! Coffee!! Coffee!!

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #127: Full of Beans!!

Coffee!! Coffee!! Coffee!! Coffee!! Coffee!! Coffee!! Coffee!!
Coffee!! Coffee!! Coffee!! Coffee!! Coffee!! Coffee!! Coffee!!

Now for a while now we have been trying to be a little more flexible with the podcast topics, allow ourselves to ramble off on tangents when we liked.

This so far has been a partial success, but tonight I think we found the key to making it happen more – Chocolate Coated Coffee Beans!

I mean of our 18 stories in this weeks show we managed to cover a mere 4 in the first part of the show and still filled a half hour.

Some of the things that we did talk about included the whole FEZ II Hipster tantrum, the fact that Project Titan will not be subscription based, the Wii U’s devastatingly low sales figures and removal from the 2nd biggest supermarket in the UK and even a FuckBuddies App being sued by Zynga.

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

Not entirely sure what PETA were thinking with this advert - I want meat more not less now!

Episode #45: Late to the Party, but still lots of fun!

Not entirely sure what PETA were thinking with this advert - I want meat more not less now!
Not entirely sure what PETA were thinking with this advert - I want meat more not less now!

As you know there would normally be an intro here that was in some way related to something that we said during the podcast however this week we ran late recording, and I had visitors on Friday night – So as I have slept twice since then what was said during the podcast is a complete blur too me.

All I can be certain of is that we talked gaming news, took the piss out of each other, fucked up at some point during recording and got drunk. Seeing as I remember the hangover Friday morning the last one is a certainty.

Were both also 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

Gow & Paddy enjoying a fire while drunk

Episode #26 – The Live Drinky Talky Thing Podcast!!

Gow & Paddy enjoying a fire while drunk
Gow & Paddy enjoying a fire while drunk

Why, Oh, Why, did I come to the conclusion that for our 6 month anniversary episode a live podcast would be a good idea?

I mean seriously what the hell was I drinking? Oh that’s right it will have been Guinness as always as this idea came up about episode 16 or so.  Since then I have been silently dreading the oncoming approach of our 6 month mark, while at the same time also relishing the prospect.

I mean seriously I don’t think either myself or Gow thought that we would actually manage an unbroken streak of this long or if we did we seriously doubted we would still have any listeners left, but here we are.

However I think that is enough stalling, despite 2 computer failures and the addition of Pimms much live podcasting was done. We would like to thank everyone that joined us in the chat even if you did derail us a few times.  For the people who could not join us live, all the parts of the cast are available for viewing at  DrinkyTalkyThing on USTREAM: . The normal podcast will be out in the next day or so once I’ve converted the videos.  [Update] Audio version of the podcast is now available.

Links to almost all the topics we hope to cover 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#25: The wonders of technology

Not sure which is me and which is Gow in this picture, but this is still funny

Well for reasons beyond our control this week Gow could not be on site to record this weeks podcast.

However we were not about to let that stop us completing an unbroken run of nearly 6 months, So god bless the wonder that is Skype!

Unfortunately after listening back to the recording , its seems that while I may have heard one thing over my headphones, the system was recording something much louder.

There are times when Gow sounds like one of those roving reporters you see on the 24hr news, in some war-torn country.

Despite that audio glitch we have decided to publish anyway.

Also we’re 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.

Naruto finds Bejeweled to play

Episode #23: In Memory of Mini Naruto

Naruto finds Bejeweled to play
Even anime characters enjoy bejeweled

So E3 has come and gone but as always that leaves us with far too much news to cover.

That’s why this weeks podcast is pretty much filled with follow-ups, which makes it a shame that unfortunately Gow had to work so couldn’t be here for recording.

That means it’s another speedy run-through of the key articles, just to make sure that you don’t have to go a week without the news.

As always we’re 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 .
