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Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #149: Long overdue and Well out of date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Ok yes this podcast is well out of date, we are looking forward to the day that life doesn’t keep getting in our way.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.

Once again Simpsons called it

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #148: Recently Bought Out by Facebook for $2

Once again Simpsons called it
Once again Simpsons called it

Yes I know, another late episode of the podcast. Unfortunately this is likely to be a trend for a few months at least.

For that reason we had far too many stories lined up to cover all of them, so for that reason we pulled it back to just the ones that we thought were most interesting.

Obviously that means that we had to talk about Project Morpheus, the Oculus Rift purchase by Facebook, Molyneux’s latest ramblings & a bunch of the awards for last years games.

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

All hail the great Helix Fosil

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #146: Watching Breaking Bad in the Wrong Order

All hail the great Helix Fosil
All hail the great Helix Fosil

I know..I know..The news in this episode can barely be called such!

I mean we were stretching the definition as it was, but this show was recorded after two weeks, and then has sat on my harddrive for a further fortnight due to work.

However this stupidity pales into comparison of the Older Gowen brother who when watching Breaking Bad managed to buy and start watching the final series before watching the fifth series.

After we were done laughing at that stupidity we got on to the task at hand, we did some drinking and we spoke about gaming. On the list of topics for the show were Twitch plays Pokemon, The Rise and Fall of Flappy Bird, Mario Kart 8 News and even a little bit of World of Warcraft managed to slip in there.

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

Really I have nothing else for this - I have no idea what was in this episode

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #145: The Magical Mystery Podcast

Really I have nothing else for this - I have no idea what was in this episode
Really I have nothing else for this – I have no idea what was in this episode

So….Erm…Yeah, This episode, I know nothing about it at all!

Seriously normally I have forgotten a little bit of what was talked about, but this episode I have lost the lot. There is a reason for that, It is the same reason as the episodes are sporadic recently – Work!

Both Myself and Gow have become a lot busier at work recently – We will try and keep them at least semi regular.

Judging from the notes we must have spoken about the the EA Dungeon Keeper mess up, CCP creating both a digital and Physical monument to its players, Nintendo’s plans to salvage their reputation and even the billshit of King.coms trademarking the word Candy.

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

Talking Point: What was the most impressive thing from CES 2014?

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 the previous show – Which Games should we Play Drunk?

All of the comments can be found at the links below.

You gave us a decent selection of games in there, we should be able to get most of them done.

This lead us on to picking a new topic and as it was going on this weekend naturally CES was fresh on her mind so we talked about  What was the most impressive thing from CES 2014?

There are were actually quite a few gaming related topics amongst the wearable tech and curved TV’s, from PlayStation Now to Project Christine and even news on the Steam Machines. While we went on about it I am not sure we picked favourites, but what did you think was the biggest and best bit of news from CES this year?
