Episode #35: Politically Memetastic

Well we got every other meme into the podcast, you dont think we would leave out the Y U NO guy did you?

I don’t want to tell you how im feeling….sorry, I have that damn Rick Astley song stuck in my head as it has been a podcast full of meme’s.

From dramatic chipmunk to all your base, I would be surprised if we missed one. when were not wasting time on old meme’s we managed to get a bit of gaming news filled in from the free-to-play conversion of Star Trek Online to the beta of Diablo III, we even found time for a bit of piss-taking at Fox News expense.

As always links to almost all the topics covered are 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 Thing.

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 #26 – The Live Drinky Talky Thing Podcast!!

Why, Oh, Why, did I come to the conclusion that for our 6 month anniversary episode a live podcast would be a good idea?

I mean seriously what the hell was I drinking? Oh that’s right it will have been Guinness as always as this idea came up about episode 16 or so.  Since then I have been silently dreading the oncoming approach of our 6 month mark, while at the same time also relishing the prospect.

I mean seriously I don’t think either myself or Gow thought that we would actually manage an unbroken streak of this long or if we did we seriously doubted we would still have any listeners left, but here we are.

However I think that is enough stalling, despite 2 computer failures and the addition of Pimms much live podcasting was done. We would like to thank everyone that joined us in the chat even if you did derail us a few times.  For the people who could not join us live, all the parts of the cast are available for viewing at  DrinkyTalkyThing on USTREAM: . The normal podcast will be out in the next day or so once I’ve converted the videos.  [Update] Audio version of the podcast is now available.

Links to almost all the topics we hope to cover are 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 .

Anyway enjoy this episode of the Drinky Talky Thing.

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.

This has nothing to do with the podcast, it just seemed like a good image

Well I would never have thought it possible if I had not actually experienced it.

Making a long overdue return to the podcast is our old friend Craig (aka TurkeySaladBoy) , seriously his presence has been missed.

I will in advance apologise for the slight audio issues in the second half of the podcast, so used to having only two people here for the recording I seem to have pulled the microphone too far forward.

This has resulted in a slightly echoed Gow for the second half of the podcast but he’s still understandable even when he tries to throw in his random Dutch words.

At this point in the intro however I am instantly regretting the choice of my podcast image for this episode as it seems there is a lot of space to fill in to make the podcast player fit into the post naturally.

But then that’s one of the good things about this site – I can admit when I messed up, so without out further stalling here is this weeks podcast.

Updates on stories from the last episode

The Fox news debacle rolls on still – first with yet another expert that fox asked in the bulletstorm story has come forward with the answers they provided, this guy was completely ignored but gave some damn fine answers.
http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2011/02/10/the-fox-news-debacle-techsavvy-update/

Then it just gets silly, Fox makes another news item about the game not to fix its statement but to push its agenda further and to cap it all insinuates Rock, Paper, Shotgun has not been telling the truth.
