Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #121: Something seems to be missing!

In loving memory of Great Listener as I had to solo this episode
In loving memory of Great Listener as I had to solo this episode

Well it has been a while indeed since the last time we have actually done a solo podcast.

Lately we have skipped weeks where both of us can not make it, however the news this week was just too big to not record something.

From the Bleszinski and has inability to keep his fucking gob shut, to the possibility of Steam adding sharing. There was a lot to cover but this week really has been dominated by the Xbox One news and and eventually its U-Turn on its DRM policy.

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

Wii U Has no Game

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #114: Still finding new ways to fail!

Wii U Has no Game
I really am starting to regret purchasing this thing

I guess I should explain the title a bit.

Regular listeners will be aware that about a month ago we started releasing an Uncut version of the podcast on YouTube.

Now being that we are cheep while we were experimenting with this we are using whatever hardware is to hand.

That means that the video is being captured on a Microsoft life-cam  with tweaked firmware and a opensource video capture program. It’s the only way it would work.

Why is that an issue? Well, there is a tick-box on the video software that activates audio capture, guess what I forgot to tick? As a result our Uncut video was completely recorded in silence.

Thankfully the audio for the normal Podcast recorded properly so it will be salvageable, but all of our rambling about SimCity, our bitching about the Wii U, our discussion on the Pluto and even our positive words about Molynuex were all missing.

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

Paddy Plays Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed – Shinobi Scramble

After having my ass handed to me by a few races in a row in this episode of Paddy Plays Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed I take on a basic race track in Shinobi Scramble.

The Randomiser this time gave me AiAi who is actually pretty well suited for this track, though I still make a few amateur hour mistakes. Managing to barely scrape in a second place I really need to up my game it seems.

Till Next Video.

Gow insisted on this picture, Who am I to say no to such a happy elephant

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast 110: The Return of the Random Words

Gow insisted on this picture, Who am I to say no to such a happy elephant

In the early days of the podcast Gow would ask on Facebook & Twitter for random words that he had to try and fit into the show.

That habit has seen a return and I will have to say the break has certainly helped as the words suggested were good.

As if to compliment the return of something old we also balanced that out with something new – Video!

As an experiment while recording this weeks show, I fired up the webcam and recorded the behind the scenes footage and it will be uploaded separately to our YouTube Channel. It should be quite interesting to see what we normally hide from the Audio show 😛

Aside from all that you can expect all the usual gaming news, reviewed with our own slapdash style and lack of research. For example: we cover the ongoing failure that is SimCity despite never having played the game, we discuss the fact that Richard Garriot basically said everyone but him and a few others were crap at designing games & even found time to have our usual pop at American media and politics due to things said in the Sandy Hook investigations.

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

Paddy Plays Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed – Starry Speedway

Continuing Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed I have reached the final track on the Sunshine Coast part of the world tour – Starry Speedway.

This track is a very pretty one based on one of the sonic games (I think colours), if your going to compare the game to Mario Kart then think Rainbow Road. The Random Character it gave me this time was Samba Di Amigo.

Before heading on to the next part of the world tour I will do a Grand Prix video, which will feature some of the tracks i have played over the last couple of weeks.
