Episode #34: Woman buys cheap thing from pound shop and wonders why its crap

How dare they sell out of date pastry products!!

There is a small part of my brain that tells me I should really write these intros before we do the recording – that or leave the uploading till after I have had a chance to sober up a bit. That however would destroy the fun of trying to come up with these while half cut!

This weeks podcast was another one of those occasions where, if there ever was a track if was very much left behind – I think we even broke our personal best as to how early into the episode we lost track of what we were talking about.

When we were on topic we covered all kinds of things from the Deus Ex vs GameStop argument to the Secret world beta launch, I think we even found time to talk DRM and the future of Steam!

But the main thing remember is that Gow wouldn’t shut up about This story, so it became the route of many jokes during the show.

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.

Episode #27: Lets try this again shall we?

This, is exactly what the podcast felt like last night

So, Last week we tried to do this podcast live, and due to my retardism (having put the fan in backwards in my case causing my pc to overheat) things did not go as smoothly as we would have liked.

So for that reason we agreed that we would do it live again, its only fair as we did say we would.

There is only one word to describe the outcome however: FAIL!

We were live for the first 20 minutes of the podcast before we realised that our sound was not just intermittent – in parts it was just completely absent.

If you want to see that failure we have left it online for all to see over at DrinkyTalkyThing on USTREAM: . Fortunately we did also have the Audio recording software on the go so that at least got recorded, but even that is not without its flaws.

Firstly for some reason, Gow mac decided to record the thing in a higher bit rate than normal, which while sounding like a good thing is actually a pain. Then to cap it off it had only recorded a single channel of sound so the podcast had to be output in mono.

That’s not going to stop us releasing it though, so just bear with us and we will be back up to standard next week (we hope)

Links to almost all the topics we covered are after the jump.

Episode#25: The wonders of technology

Not sure which is me and which is Gow in this picture, but this is still funny

Well for reasons beyond our control this week Gow could not be on site to record this weeks podcast.

However we were not about to let that stop us completing an unbroken run of nearly 6 months, So god bless the wonder that is Skype!

Unfortunately after listening back to the recording , its seems that while I may have heard one thing over my headphones, the system was recording something much louder.

There are times when Gow sounds like one of those roving reporters you see on the 24hr news, in some war-torn country.

Despite that audio glitch we have decided to publish anyway.

Also we’re 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 #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.
