Sound Suggestions: Swimmin’ on a Rainbow Road

Lets go! On the nostalgia train to yesteryear when Mario Kart 64 was the king of it all and those weird Nintendo 64 controllers were the shit!

This song is a nicely paced version of the Rainbow Road track which will keep you bouncing a bit around the corners. Always good to have alternative to the classics, eh?

Cheers!

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #147: Always in favour of Anarchy

Nobody will ever know!
Nobody will ever know!

It would be easy to say that this episode was delayed due to wasting time playing pokemon, in fact it was Gows job to publish these it might even be true.

In all honesty its once again a problem of my being in a bit of a busy period at work.

However that is probably not why you are here, you will most likely be after gaming news.

In this show we talked about the possibility of a Last of Us sequel, the fact that Kickstarter has passed the $1Billion pledge mark, a metric fucktonne of Twitch news and even a bit of a chat on Batman & Half-Life 3. What more could you want

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

Really I have nothing else for this - I have no idea what was in this episode

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #145: The Magical Mystery Podcast

Really I have nothing else for this - I have no idea what was in this episode
Really I have nothing else for this – I have no idea what was in this episode

So….Erm…Yeah, This episode, I know nothing about it at all!

Seriously normally I have forgotten a little bit of what was talked about, but this episode I have lost the lot. There is a reason for that, It is the same reason as the episodes are sporadic recently – Work!

Both Myself and Gow have become a lot busier at work recently – We will try and keep them at least semi regular.

Judging from the notes we must have spoken about the the EA Dungeon Keeper mess up, CCP creating both a digital and Physical monument to its players, Nintendo’s plans to salvage their reputation and even the billshit of King.coms trademarking the word Candy.

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.

Paddy Plays Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed – Starry Speedway

Continuing Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed I have reached the final track on the Sunshine Coast part of the world tour – Starry Speedway.

This track is a very pretty one based on one of the sonic games (I think colours), if your going to compare the game to Mario Kart then think Rainbow Road. The Random Character it gave me this time was Samba Di Amigo.

Before heading on to the next part of the world tour I will do a Grand Prix video, which will feature some of the tracks i have played over the last couple of weeks.

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.

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.
