Talking Point: What is your opinion on the VR Trend?

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 – Which Game sums up your Childhood?

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.

A lot of very good suggestions but you guys wound up Gow as none of you selected a single game, though to be honest neither did we really and the ones we kinda forced upon ourselves was probably wrong

However one overwhelming opinion was a lot of people really liked the LucasArts

Moving on to this weeks topic, we want to know What is your opinion on the VR Trend?

This came about as a result of during the 3 weeks we have been away much happened in that area of the gaming industry. Firstly Sony officially announced project morpheus as their entry into the VR Market, then just before recording Facebook bought the Oculus developers for $2 Billion (Yes I heard Dr Evil as well). So whats your take on the whole thing and will you still be buying one?

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..

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #147: Always in favour of Anarchy

Nobody will ever know!
Nobody will ever know!

It would be easy to say that this episode was delayed due to wasting time playing pokemon, in fact it was Gows job to publish these it might even be true.

In all honesty its once again a problem of my being in a bit of a busy period at work.

However that is probably not why you are here, you will most likely be after gaming news.

In this show we talked about the possibility of a Last of Us sequel, the fact that Kickstarter has passed the $1Billion pledge mark, a metric fucktonne of Twitch news and even a bit of a chat on Batman & Half-Life 3. What more could you want

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

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 Should Twitch Play Next?

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.

Most of you really wanted to see them play something a little more modern such as Skyrim, however we were not sure how effective that kind of game would be. Camera control would be next to impossible and we think it would very quickly become unwatchable.

Some people did suggest more pokemon, this gave us a new topic Which Game sums up your Childhood?

This is because Twitch playing Pokemon convinced Gow to go back start playing Pokemon, this made us wonder which game summed up each of our childhoods. Not the first game we played but the first we think of when we think back to when going into nostalgia mode.

For Me that was Sonic the Hedgehog despite how generic an answer that is, for Gow it was Pokemon. The game we couldn’t think of was Joe & Mac: Caveman Ninjas.

Talking Point: What Should Twitch Play Next?

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 favourite Free-To-Play Game?

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.

Naturally one of the big topics at the moment is Twitch Plays Pokemon, so we had a bit of a talk about that and how well it has actually gone. At time of recording they had most of the badges and were well on their way to getting the rest.

This lead to the natural question What Should Twitch Play Next?

Obviously more of the Pokemon series is an option, but why limit it to that series any top down RPG would really work – Personally I want to see QWOP would be a very good option and Gow thought of Dance Dance Revolution or Fallout

Its Super Effective!!

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #137: Is Everybody Sitting Comfortably?

Its Super Effective!!
Its Super Effective!!

While it may not sound important to most people, this week saw a bit of a breakthrough. After 3 years of recording Gow finally has a proper chair!

When we started recording the only spare seat I had for him was a broken office chair with no back, and for some reason I never got round to finding him a replacement till now. I wonder how long it will take before he gets his own mic?

However you are here for the gaming news and on that front we had quite a lot to go over after taking last week off. From the Activision buyout finally completing, Wii U sales tripling after a price drop, bad news about both the PS4 & XBox One’s hardware compatibility, Blizzard announcing Heart of the Storm & Even a bit of a laugh at The Sun.

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

Sound Suggestions: Pokemon Rt 11 Metal Remix

Many a time I have strolled through the Route 11 area in Pokemon Red, Blue and Yellow. Since then quite a few versions of that famed series has come out. For me, the originals are still the best.

In this iteration of the Route 11 theme the essence is the same, but replaced with their heavy metal counterparts. Crank it up, pull out the lvl 100s, and go to town!

Cheers!
