Life, you know sometimes it just gets in the way doesn’t it.

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.

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

Episode #34: Woman buys cheap thing from pound shop and wonders why its crap

How dare they sell out of date pastry products!!

There is a small part of my brain that tells me I should really write these intros before we do the recording – that or leave the uploading till after I have had a chance to sober up a bit. That however would destroy the fun of trying to come up with these while half cut!

This weeks podcast was another one of those occasions where, if there ever was a track if was very much left behind – I think we even broke our personal best as to how early into the episode we lost track of what we were talking about.

When we were on topic we covered all kinds of things from the Deus Ex vs GameStop argument to the Secret world beta launch, I think we even found time to talk DRM and the future of Steam!

But the main thing remember is that Gow wouldn’t shut up about This story, so it became the route of many jokes during the show.

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 . 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.

A Journey into the wasteland

As I briefly mentioned to Gow at the end of Drinky Talky Thing #3 someone has made an incredible Fallout based fan film.

Following the adventures of Twig, a former occupant of Vault 10 as he searches the wasteland for his favourite beverage – Nuka Cola. Joining him in his travels are Ben the ghoul & Scarlett a sexy former slave girl. These 3 misfits do not have the best of times in the wasteland, running up against both merchants & bounty hunters.

Seriously I don’t want to say too much about this as it really should be watched and enjoyed – but suffice to say I really hope someone with a bit of budget comes and helps these guys continue this trios story. I could easily see this becoming a great series if written well. I would particularly like to see the series of events that lead to this trio wandering the wasteland together, perhaps this would form part of a flashback episode.

Anyway its time you saw it – so watch
