As you know guest hosts are rare, so having two in one week is nearly unheard of. However in this case they are Kinda a package deal.
This week see’s the long overdue return of the our old friend Craig, who brought along his young son Noah.
It was good to have both of them here, even if I was very bad at curbing my tendency to swear in front of the little one (thank god he is too young to understand what I was saying).
In between the ammusement cause by the little one we managed to find time to talk about everything from the announcements regarding EA & the Star Wars Franchise, More complaining about the Wii U & even some general MMO talk as WoW loses even more subscribers.
Anyway all that and much more in this episode of the Drinky Talky Thingy.

Another week and another podcast is recorded.
Were well into the year now and there is only one overriding fact we have learnt along the way, a soundboard must be sorted out and soon. We tried to add a single sound effect into this weeks cast and well to say it was a failure is selling it short.
However for shits and giggles we decided to Google our names during one of the songs and I am glad we did, the picture for this weeks show is the result of our search for Gow, look at it! It’s epic!
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
For years now both FIFA and PES have been battling to decide which of them would be the greatest football game on the market.
Over all of those years the Thirteen1 team have always played them, never particularly loyal to either franchise as like any good fight the lead has switched many times.
One thing that has been consistent however is the drinking game we based on them. It started off very simple as just a drink for every goal, but in the last few years I have refined and improved it just like the games themselves.
Remember as always I leave it up to you to decide what you drink, I count a Drink as a solid gulp of my pint of beer. That way my fun can last for decent amount of time.
This is also a group drinking game meaning that everyone on the team takes the punishment when a rule is applied.
The Half Time Refreshments – Both teams have a drink at half time by standard, optional extra to this rule is the losing team have a 2nd drink
The Cards – A yellow card means a drink for the player that received it. If you manage to jump directly to red, take two drinks.
The Goals – A drink for each goal your team concedes
Final Whistle – A drink for the losing team, plus an extra drink if it’s by more than 5 goals
Making it worth it – This is a reversal rule, if you get a card BUT you injure a player on the other team, the other team have to have a drink instead, two if the player is instantly taken off the pitch
The price you pay – Any action that is not on the pitch – formation change, substitutions etc. – all come at the cost of a drink for the team.
This is one of those games that really differs in drinking level based on your skill with the game. That is why I would classify it as Moderate to Heavy. Personally I suck at them so I get very drunk very fast even drinking only beer.
