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.
We also welcome your contact about anything you want to talk to us about – From suggestions for stories to recommendations for mid podcast songs, Hell you can even just hurl insults at us if you so wish. Below is a list of the ways you can contact us. Send us a sound clip and we will even bung it in the show.
You can even if you so wish buy us gifts of beers and sweeties via our Amazon wishlist, doing so will make you the sponsor of that show and as a result we will say almost anything you ask us to during the show. Amazon.co.uk: Drinky Talky Thing
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.
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.
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
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
