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How dare they sell out of date pastry products!!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.

Drinky Talky Thing 2011 #2


I channel the spirit of MacGyver far too often!

It’s a new years miracle!!

We have actually managed to record two episodes of the Podcast within a week of each other. Ok, so two weeks does not a regularly schedule Podcast make, but its an improvement on once every now and again.

So this week we actually tried a new audio set-up, as I wanted to try and reduce the issues with the sound variation we had before. This was caused by us forgetting we were holding mics and moving them about too much, were only hobbyist afterall. So this one I wanted to try and eliminate that by putting the mics in a static location which, in leu of real stands, turned out to be cellotaped too my amBX kit.

Anyway as always, enjoy the cast and below are the links and videos mentioned.
