Sound Suggestions: Donut Plains blues

Once again, nostalgia strikes hard. The little plumber bastard never did what I wanted him to do on some days. On those days, I wish I had this to play in the background to give myself a chance to calm down… instead of destroying a certain console…

Well, we have it now! This is a much mellower version of the Donut Plains theme from Super Marios World; and also heard in various other iterations, I’m sure. Sit back and relax.

NightCrawler & Gambit, certainly the best choice as X-Men

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #135: Dancing Goombas & Steam Consoles

NightCrawler & Gambit, certainly the best choice as X-Men
NightCrawler & Gambit, certainly the best choice as X-Men

So this week we felt that we really didn’t learn much at all in the show as far as the weeks gaming news is concerned – Both myself and Gow seemed to be in a Ranting Mood.

This show however was recorded before the final announcement from Steam, so we have a good old time trying to guess that.

Aside from that, we did manage to discuss the Steam OS & Steam Machines while also finding time to Rant about Mario, Nick Clegg, World of Warcraft, Sony & GTA Online.

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

Talking Point: Does Last of Us live up to the hype?

It is that time of the week again, when in to get warmed up ready for the podcast we ramble about a chosen topic. Before we got onto this weeks topic we did however have to handle the comments of the Listeners/Viewers of last weeks show – Which Games Franchise has been done to death?

Here are some of the things our viewers suggested

  • Trevor – Crash Bandicoot
  • Dan Allen – Call of Duty
  • Stuart Renton – Pokemon & Mario
  • Mike Lockwood – Tekken & Splinter Cell
  • Alec-Ross Bower  – Splinter Cell, Resident Evil, Call of Duty & Fifa
  • FirehawkShadowchild – EA Sports Collection & Simulator Franchise
  • TimmyHassall – Call of Duty
  • Michell Chatterton – House of the Dead

As always we then went on to have a good old fashion natter about this weeks topic which was Does Last of Us live up to the hype?

For us we think that on the whole it does, there are some areas where it is a little weak in the gameplay but the story carries it in our eyes.

So, What about it guys & gals?

Let us know in the comments below which is your favourite and suggest a possible question for the next Talking Point, please do as I seem bad at picking them myself.  Everything is fair game, from politics to movies, music to games, hell we will even discuss our favourite womble if you so desire it.


Episode #43: Sporting a Moustache for Movember

I hope my Moustache is this epic by the end of Movember!

Well were here another week in and good news people, I did not have to record this episode of the podcast all alone. No, thankfully Gow was back this week.

However before we start on the podcast I want to take a bit of a detour. This month is most commonly known as November, however for the last few years it has been also known as Movember. This is due to a charity event aimed at raising awareness of men’s health, particularly prostate cancer, by having thousands of men worldwide grow a moustache.

Now normally I am fully bearded & Gow just simply does not seem to be able to grow facial hair at all, however we have both agreed to join in on this years event and will be growing moustaches for the cause.

If you want to help us in our good cause then you can donate to us for our madness at

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. Drinky Talky Thing

The cake is definitely not a lie! I know, me and the wife made it this week

Well this episode of the Podcast was actually rather a close call.

On Monday the power supply committed Seppuku and put my PC out of commission.

Thankfully though Gow, being the supergeek he is, happened to have a spare power supply lying around that I have temporarily borrowed until me new one shows up.

As a result the sound may well be a little out in this episode as we only finished putting the machine back together less than 10 minutes before recording – We literally booted he machine up and  started audition.

Anyway, as always enjoy the podcast and let us know what you think

Sometimes its not worth thinking about reality

Oh the intro to the podcast posting, why do I not write you right after recording?

Beer + Sleep = Paddy forgetting what was supposed to be mentioned in the intro text. I know there was something we agreed on, something really funny, but its gone.

So instead I will simply leave you with an interesting picture of Kirby and the podcast to listen too.

Now if you don’t mind I finally have my copy of Portal 2 and I want to get back down to playing it.
