Episode #30: Chocolate teapots are the way forward

Who says chocolate teapots can't be useful? Whoever they are, tell them we think their wrong!!

You know what, I think both me and Gow are starting to lose the plot.

Seriously I think we managed to spend the first few minutes debating whether or not a chocolate teapot would be a practical hot drink creation/containment vessel. I think we finally came down on the side of yes but only were the chocolate substantially thick enough and perhaps dual layered with a vacuüm in between for insulation.

When we were not talking about random shite like that we also managed to talk about a bunch of this weeks gaming news from the Diablo 3 fansite visit to the 3DS price drop and even a bit on Baattlefield 3.

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)

Drinky Talky Thing 2011 #16

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
