Good News, Gow has recovered from his Man-Flu so we are back behind the mic as usual.

We may however have to make weeks off more common, I don’t think we have recorded an episode quite this distracted in quite some time.

In between completely losing the plot we did manage to cover some of the gaming news. From the rumours on the Steam Machines Prototypes, to the confirmation that Sonic will in Smash Brothers & even the news on a whole pile of Legal Battles.

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

This weeks shows are fueled by the beers of the HardKnott Brewery - boy are they good beers

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #128: Fueled by the HardKnott Brewery

This weeks shows are fueled by the beers of the HardKnott Brewery - boy are they good beers
This weeks shows are fueled by the beers of the HardKnott Brewery – boy are they good beers

Every now and again we try to mix up the beers that we drink, bringing in some microbreweries to widen our outlook.

This week we drank the beers of the HardKnott Brewery, which were quite the surprise. Each one caught us off guard on the first tasting but then grew on us very nicely.

You might notice that this is a very MMO heavy week news wise, the reason for this is twofold. First there was actually a lot of MMO News, but also my RSS news feeder was offline for two days to move servers and I may have missed some stuff as a result.

So this week we obviously covered some World of Warcraft news & The announcements for EverQuest Next & Landmark but we did manage some normal news. From the X-Box One’s unboxing and DVR news, to the fact that Nintendo have no intention of going third party and even news of a possible PS4 bundle.

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

Why the hell does anything still use the FAT32 filing system anymore?

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #119: 4GB Limit my Arse

Why the hell does anything still use the FAT32 filing system anymore?
Why the hell does anything still use the FAT32 filing system anymore?

Apologies to anyone who only listens to the audio version of this podcast, the title of this podcast will not matter to you.

However for the few YouTube viewers and me, Fuck Canon and Fuck the FAT32 file system.

As a result of limitations of that filesystem that I did not know my camera was using only 17 minutes of the podcast has video footage.

But the tech is not why you guys are here is it, its gaming news you are after and we have a pile of stuff. From the X-Box One to the PS4, some Square Enix stuff and even a mention of Zynga, we covered the whole gamut of gaming news and even found time to talk about Ping Pong Shows and American Murder Laws.

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

The good thing about having a wife that can bake - Portal Cookies!!

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #118: Humpty Dumpty has a Fantastic Brewery

The good thing about having a wife that can bake - Portal Cookies!!
The good thing about having a wife that can bake – Portal Cookies!!

Well to say we had two weeks worth of content to cover, I am pretty impressed we managed to cover it all.

Though to be honest one story did dominate much of the news for the last fortnight and that was the X-Box One.

While the console itself saw little fanfare, the chaos around certain aspects such as Pre-Owned, Online requirements & Indie support have caused confusion.

We did manage to find some other news though, from the continuing woes of the Wii U to EA losing the plot a little and even a kickstarter campaign that we might actually be ok with.

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

If it wasn't for the videos, some people might even think Gow was a figment of my imagination

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #117: Members of the New Hero Hotline

If it wasn’t for the videos, some people might even think Gow was a figment of my imagination

I don’t know if anyone reads these intros, but if you do be warned that this is one of the more random episodes we have recorded recently.

I think we must have spent at least 10 minutes on the Hero Hotline alone, which kinda spiralled out of control while talking about the new Scribblenauts game.

For the rest of the weirdness, well you will just have to listen to the show.

It was however been a good news week, from EA announcing that it was scrapping Online Passes to Sony scrapping some developers fee’s & even Gow getting very excited about the glorified spreadsheet Gran Tourismo getting its 6th incarnation.

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