Scarlet Blade, Game for the 15 year old male unable to find real porn
Scarlet Blade, A Game for the 15 year old male unable to find real porn

Well it seems to work for video games still so why the hell should we not take advantage as well?

This weeks gaming news was actually very interesting indeed.

People got fired for what in the end turned out to be sarcasm, but when you’re a Creative Director at Microsoft you really should know better.

EA were voted the worst company in America for the second year running, once again proving public polls are a complete waste of time

There are a few stories related to the imbalance between male and females within the games industry, from wages to imagery & even their exclusion from certain aspects that might help explain a few things.

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

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 BIT.TRIP Runner Drunk

Last night after recording Episode 108 of the Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast, while everything was compiling & uploading to the server, I took the time to record some more gameplay.

This time because I thought I needed something simpler to fit my drunken state, I played BIT.TRIP Runner. Turns out that even thought the first too levels only involve jumping I still needed something simpler it turns out.

Now there is an attempt at commentary but obviously in my drunken state I did not take into account the volume of the games sound track and most of my words are drown out by the very nice music the game has, All you can really hear is me getting more pissed off as I fail to progress.

Anyway Till Next Video!

Paddy Plays Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed – Downtown Drift

In this video I finally get to a new type of race, The drift challenge. This involves trying to get through a set number of gates within a time and the only way to make it round is to drift between gates on a certain line that will gain you time.

It sounds easy but on each difficulty level the drifting line gets narrower. The Track was Downtown Drift and was based on Jet Set Radio.

For this race I decided not to go random character and picked Ulala from Space Channel 5, though in an attempt to explain one of the games features I accidentally ended up playing the course a second time as Knuckles from the Sonic Series.

Paddy Plays Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed – Coastal Cruise

Not wanting to get bogged down in Starcraft II, I am going to break up those videos with other games. As I had already done one video on Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed it seemed like the natural choice.

Playing through the World Tour, Starting where it is always best to – the beginning!

That means in this case the race Coastal Cruise, and to give it a bit of variety I selected a random character. This time I was stuck with AiAi from Super Monkey Ball

Phoe and Cereal Play Portal 2 Drunk

Back when it was released I created a Drinking Game for Portal 2’s CO-OP Mode (which you can see here) , Having enjoyed it myself I had always if anyone out there had also played it.

Recently I found out that YouTuber’s Phoe & Cereal had not only played the game but had also recorded their adventures. I have been watching their videos with glee as they get more and more drunk and more amusing as a result.

Their attempt has not finished yet, they are up to part 5 so far but I am keeping a running playlist alive and as each episode is published I will add it. However if you dont want to wait for me to notice them I suggest subscribing directly to their channel.

Seriously give them a watch you will enjoy them, Phoe has even introduced me to a new type of drink that I have to try out at the next games night.
