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!

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 #29: Unrealistic Expectations

Marks & Spencer's haven't photo-shopped that woman honestly - she always has floating head syndrome

Ok I will readily admit, we finished recording Episode 29 less that 45 minutes ago as I write this intro – but were you to quiz me on exactly which topics we covered along the way I would not be able to completely answer.

I mean at some point we were taking the piss out of Marks and Spencer adverts (or just drooling at the boobies contained within) later I remember mention of Magical Trevor.

Anyway despite our off topic ramblings, which seemed to be numerous during this episode, we did actually manage to fit in a lot of gaming news. From Arkham City to  VVVVV, it all got a mention somewhere along the lines – in fact 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.

Drinky Talky Thing 2011 #4

If anyone knows where I can get some of this beer, please let me know!

Well it seems that the sanity of Gow’s friend’s seem to have returned to normal levels. Only on person cam up with a word that didn’t exist. That’s not to say that they made the word easy to work in.

This week we had the chance to properly use the new studio arm and mic together. Last week we got to us the mic but I had to get a replacement arm sent as the first was damaged in delivery.

I have to commend the eBay seller nottinghammusicshop who has been incredibly helpful and responsive.

Any as you can no doubt see I am rambling as I need to pad out the section next to the image. The reason for that is the podcast player does not fit in this gap and leaves a lot of ugly whitespace.

So without further stalling here is this weeks Podcast – as always the links for any story can be found below.
