Episode #42: A Lonely Turret’s Serenade

If I were a Turret is be the fat bugger in the middle!

Well this is a first for the Drinky Talky Thingy podcast – A completely sober one!!

Yes you heard that right, unfortunately this week Gow was once again ill so was unable to join in with the recording. To compound things I was also on medication that meant he was not allowed to drink. I will let you guess how happy I was about that!

However as always the show must go on, My OCD will not allow a week to be missed. Not until we take our winter break anyway. At least I managed to get most of this weeks news covered for you.

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

Episode #34: Woman buys cheap thing from pound shop and wonders why its crap

How dare they sell out of date pastry products!!

There is a small part of my brain that tells me I should really write these intros before we do the recording – that or leave the uploading till after I have had a chance to sober up a bit. That however would destroy the fun of trying to come up with these while half cut!

This weeks podcast was another one of those occasions where, if there ever was a track if was very much left behind – I think we even broke our personal best as to how early into the episode we lost track of what we were talking about.

When we were on topic we covered all kinds of things from the Deus Ex vs GameStop argument to the Secret world beta launch, I think we even found time to talk DRM and the future of Steam!

But the main thing remember is that Gow wouldn’t shut up about This story, so it became the route of many jokes during the show.

Episode #33: DRM free and with Llamas for all!

Llama, Llama, Duck

I always seem to come up with some excuse about why I can’t remember what was talked about less that 20 minutes ago – this week I am simply going to blame Gow.

He insisted on playing the damn Llama song right after we finished recording and now all that I can think of seeing to revolve around that song!

fortunately though, thanks to all the links below i know that we covered a great many topics such as the DRM issues of From Dust to the OnLive codes in Deus Ex: Human Revolution. We even managed to squeeze in some World of Warcraft, Diablo 3 and Battlefield 3.

Episode #30: Chocolate teapots are the way forward

Who says chocolate teapots can't be useful? Whoever they are, tell them we think their wrong!!

You know what, I think both me and Gow are starting to lose the plot.

Seriously I think we managed to spend the first few minutes debating whether or not a chocolate teapot would be a practical hot drink creation/containment vessel. I think we finally came down on the side of yes but only were the chocolate substantially thick enough and perhaps dual layered with a vacuüm in between for insulation.

When we were not talking about random shite like that we also managed to talk about a bunch of this weeks gaming news from the Diablo 3 fansite visit to the 3DS price drop and even a bit on Baattlefield 3.

Drinky Talky Thing 2011 #14

Poor guy scribbles on a wall to warn you, but still gets nailed by some turrets.

Now here’s the thing, Gow did tell me I had to start this post with a word – but for the life of me I cant remember what it is.

I think it was one of the random word that he didn’t quite manage to fit in.

Anyway, this week saw Gow returning after a week off with some form of plague and the good news is the podcast got back to full length again.

So with all my needed stalling done enjoy this weeks podcast.

Drinky Talky Thing 2011 #13

Ok, how did someone manage to get a picture of me first thing in the morning?

Well its been a while since I last had to do a podcast solo, unfortunately this week Gow was ill.

The one thing that has to be said – what the hell??

I remember that in the early episodes we would have trouble filling an hour when both of us were on form.

Now the podcasts last nearly 2 hours at the best of times and even when recording solo I’m pushing the 1hr mark.

Hopefully next week we will be back up to full strength, and as always links to everything in this episode are below.

So without further stalling for space, enjoy the cast
