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!

Hell Yeah - Wrath of the Dead Rabbit!

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast : Hell Yeah! We’re Dodging Episode #150!

Hell Yeah - Wrath of the Dead Rabbit!
Hell Yeah – Wrath of the Dead Rabbit!

So here we are, after all this time at the 150th-ish episode of the Drinky Talky Thingy.

That said we’re not going to count this one as we are trying to organise another recording where all the group are involved.

But being that we hadn’t recorded in a while we felt like doing so and took the opportunity to try out a new format.

Let us know in the comments if it makes any difference at all.

During our recording we may have spoken about any of the stories linked below the Amplitude Kickstart, Oclus Lawsuits, Watch Dog failings and even a bit of a Dig at Nintendo.

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

Talking Point: What is your Favourite Type of Donut?

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 the previous show – What the hell are Nintendo going to do at E3?

All of the comments can be found at the links below.

As always some of your suggestions and comments were great, we do like when people get involved.

Everybody seems as mixed in opinion as the rest of us. One guy pulled me up on the wording of some of my complaints and I am happy he did as it gave me a chance to better explain what I thought.

Moving on to this weeks topic, finally Gow picked the topic which lead to the discussion What is your Favourite Type of Donut?

Strangely this is one of the most honest and in depth discussions we have had in sometime in my opinion! For me there was only one option – Freshly cooked donut balls, generally found at fairs and seaside towns. For Gow he did like a glazed donut.

There were other topics  as well but you will have to watch to see what they were

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 wish it..

Because not even Iwata knows what he is doing anymore

Talking Point: What the hell are Nintendo going to do at E3?

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 the previous show – What is your opinion on the VR Trend?

All of the comments can be found at the links below.

As always some of your suggestions and comments were great, we do like when people get involved.

Seems on the whole everyone was quite positive on the whole VR thing, thinking forward to what it is possible and what the industry might do. You also all seem to realise that whatever happens it is going to take some time.

Moving on to this weeks topic, we want to know What the hell are Nintendo going to do at E3?

They are in the proverbial Catch 22 at the moment. Business wise they could really do with cutting their losses on the Wii U and announcing something new to replace it, but they really cant afford to look weak and can a console that is only 2 years old. Particularly when that console was only bought by their hardcore fans.

Talk about biting the hand that feeds!

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.

Once again Simpsons called it

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #148: Recently Bought Out by Facebook for $2

Once again Simpsons called it
Once again Simpsons called it

Yes I know, another late episode of the podcast. Unfortunately this is likely to be a trend for a few months at least.

For that reason we had far too many stories lined up to cover all of them, so for that reason we pulled it back to just the ones that we thought were most interesting.

Obviously that means that we had to talk about Project Morpheus, the Oculus Rift purchase by Facebook, Molyneux’s latest ramblings & a bunch of the awards for last years games.

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