Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #148: Recently Bought Out by Facebook for $2

Once again Simpsons called it
Once again Simpsons called it

Yes I know, another late episode of the podcast. Unfortunately this is likely to be a trend for a few months at least.

For that reason we had far too many stories lined up to cover all of them, so for that reason we pulled it back to just the ones that we thought were most interesting.

Obviously that means that we had to talk about Project Morpheus, the Oculus Rift purchase by Facebook, Molyneux’s latest ramblings & a bunch of the awards for last years games.

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

Review: Trial of the clone (iOS)

I will finish this story no matter how many times it tries to kill me
I will finish this story no matter how many times it tries to kill me

Maybe I am just getting old, but more and more things seem to make me feel nostalgic lately. It may also have something to do with the next generation of gamers and developers rediscovering lost formats and franchises.

One such developer is TinMan Games who for the last few years had be doing a wonderful job of bringing the ‘choose your own adventure’ style books back into the public view.

I loved these as a child, I would read and reread dog-eared fighting fantasy books trying to find every possible version of the story. Sure I cheated a bit but that was part of the fun.

Their latest book has just been released and I have been reading/playing it during my commutes to and from work each day. It has taken me longer to get to the review point than it usually would though as, either this book has a lot of possible ways to die than their earlier books or I have just been making some terrible choices.

Episode #44: Timed to perfection, Styled like a boss

Ok Saints Row 3, you will I'll buy a copy just leave Mr fluffyboots alone!

Its taken 11 months of trying, but after 44 episodes we finally did it. We have finally stopped an episode of the podcast at an exact second!!

Seriously, this podcast is 2hrs 5 minutes and 00.000 seconds long. I have been aiming for that level of perfection ever since Gow mentioned his OCD regarding this matter and infected me with it

You will also notice that this week we finally got a soundboard working, now were not sure if its working correctly – were hoping that you guys will tell us if it is not but its there so listen out for it.

Other than there there is the usual mix of gmaing news and myself and Gow going off topic along the way.

Were both also still growing Moustaches for Movember so you want to help us in our good cause then you can donate to us for our madness at http://mobro.co/DrunkenGamer.

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 #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 #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.

Episode#25: The wonders of technology

Not sure which is me and which is Gow in this picture, but this is still funny

Well for reasons beyond our control this week Gow could not be on site to record this weeks podcast.

However we were not about to let that stop us completing an unbroken run of nearly 6 months, So god bless the wonder that is Skype!

Unfortunately after listening back to the recording , its seems that while I may have heard one thing over my headphones, the system was recording something much louder.

There are times when Gow sounds like one of those roving reporters you see on the 24hr news, in some war-torn country.

Despite that audio glitch we have decided to publish anyway.

Also we’re 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 Thing.
