Talking Point: What is your favourite Free-To-Play Game?

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 – What is the Strangest Patent, Trademark or Copyright you have heard of?

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

Seriously some of the suggestions were just bat shit crazy, we will be contacting the winner asap – I hope you enjoy your stuff

So it seems that EA aren’t happy with King.com trying to steal thier title of Biggest Tosspots in the Industry releasing a version of Dungeon Keeper for Mobile that is so badly done and so much of a money grab that I am not even willing to try and pretend to be impartial about it.

Knowing as we do that there are a lot of very good free to play games out there, we decided rather than ask for your take on Dungeon Keeper (because lets be fair thats quite a one-sided question) we instead want to know What is your favourite Free-To-Play Game?

Lets get a list that we can share around about how it should be done

Let us know in the comments below which is your favourite and suggest a possible question for the next Talking Point, please do as I seem bad at picking them myself. Everything is fair game, from politics to movies, music to games, hell we will even discuss our favourite womble if you so wish it..

Farewell Hiroshi Yamauchi. While we may never have met you, you profoundly affected all of our lives

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #134: Farewell Hiroshi Yamauchi

Farewell Hiroshi Yamauchi. While we may never have met you, you profoundly affected all of our lives
Farewell Hiroshi Yamauchi. While we may never have met you, you profoundly affected all of our lives

It is never a good week when any member of the industry passes, but I can imagine fewer that have had quite the impact on as many gamers as Hiroshi Yamauchi.

While he stepped down as Head of Nintendo a few years ago, without him they may well still be making trading cards.

Obviously though that was not the only news in gaming circles this week, and the game always continues.

This week we talked about the Rumoured Steam Box, the PS3 to PS4 upgrade Program, the end of Warhammer Online & obviously also some GTA V chatter because it would be impossible not to.

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

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.

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

Episode #43: Sporting a Moustache for Movember

I hope my Moustache is this epic by the end of Movember!

Well were here another week in and good news people, I did not have to record this episode of the podcast all alone. No, thankfully Gow was back this week.

However before we start on the podcast I want to take a bit of a detour. This month is most commonly known as November, however for the last few years it has been also known as Movember. This is due to a charity event aimed at raising awareness of men’s health, particularly prostate cancer, by having thousands of men worldwide grow a moustache.

Now normally I am fully bearded & Gow just simply does not seem to be able to grow facial hair at all, however we have both agreed to join in on this years event and will be growing moustaches for the cause.

Episode #41: We really need a soundboard

Oh god bless Google! This is the second image found when searching for Gow

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!

Episode #35: Politically Memetastic

Well we got every other meme into the podcast, you dont think we would leave out the Y U NO guy did you?

I don’t want to tell you how im feeling….sorry, I have that damn Rick Astley song stuck in my head as it has been a podcast full of meme’s.

From dramatic chipmunk to all your base, I would be surprised if we missed one. when were not wasting time on old meme’s we managed to get a bit of gaming news filled in from the free-to-play conversion of Star Trek Online to the beta of Diablo III, we even found time for a bit of piss-taking at Fox News expense.
