Episode #29: Unrealistic Expectations

Marks & Spencer's haven't photo-shopped that woman honestly - she always has floating head syndrome

Ok I will readily admit, we finished recording Episode 29 less that 45 minutes ago as I write this intro – but were you to quiz me on exactly which topics we covered along the way I would not be able to completely answer.

I mean at some point we were taking the piss out of Marks and Spencer adverts (or just drooling at the boobies contained within) later I remember mention of Magical Trevor.

Anyway despite our off topic ramblings, which seemed to be numerous during this episode, we did actually manage to fit in a lot of gaming news. From Arkham City to  VVVVV, it all got a mention somewhere along the lines – in fact 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 #28: These things are harder solo

No matter how old he gets or what he tries, Gow will always look no more that 12 years old ...Annoying ain't it!

Well a week has passed so it is once again time for another podcast, so one has been recorded.

This week however it was just DrunkenGamer behind the mic, as the day of recording was actually Gows birthday.

As happens on these occasions, rather than leave you out in the cold without an episode of the podcast, we record it solo – the downside to this is that without someone to talk too the pocast is about half its usual length.

Now as this thing is bordering the two and a half hour mark each week a shorter one every now and again is probably a welcome break.

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

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)

Jebus, Yet another thing to make me feel old

Episode #24: Sonic’s Birthday Episode

Jebus, Yet another thing to make me feel old
Jebus, Yet another thing to make me feel old

Thank lord for that, I didnt have to do two weeks ruuning on my own. Gow managed to drag himself away from his work to podcast this week.

No that it means this episode makes any more sense than any of the others, god I think we went of topic even more than usual this week.

However between our random ramblings about things Gow missed and the possible future of gaming we managed to get some news in and even a song.

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.

Plants vs Zombies Drinking Game

Hang on if the zombie is chewing the controller, does that mean the 360 is alive?

Ever Since Plants Vs Zombies  was first released I have loved it. When I love a game the first thing I want to do is make a drinking game for it. unfortunately Single player games are not really conducive to drinking games so for a long time it was just not possible

However the recently released XBLA version fixed that lack, adding multi-player in both Co-op & Vs modes.

This drinking game is based on the Vs Mode, and I recommend players switch sides regularly. You should play winner stays on if in a big group.

Rules

Powerless Player – Every time one of your sunflowers or gravestones is destroyed, have a drink.

Last Ditch Defence – When playing as Plants, if one of your lawnmowers is activated, have a drink

Sharpshooter – When playing as Zombies, have a drink when you lose a target.

A Lack of Brains – When the match is over, the loser should have two drinks

A good offence is the best defence – If you manage to beat the other player without having to use a lawnmower as Plants, or losing a target as Zombies  – the loser has an extra drink

Having tried this a number of times now I can confirm that this game ranges from Moderate to Heavy based on your opponent

Vikings of Thule

The Drinky Talky Thing Podcast, Episode #6 – Part 1

Vikings of Thule
The free beer that we got from Vikings of Thule, Sponsors of Episode 6

Yay, after a long delay were finally back.

Yes I know its been a while since the last episode of the Podcast, but unfortunately we cannot stop people getting ill.

Between the three of us, every time we set a new date for recording one of us would be put out of commission by man-flu, epic scale hangovers or just sheer exhaustion.

However we finally got together again and in order to put us back on track we have recorded a double length episode.  As a result some of this stories may be a bit older and obviously the longer recording increases the alcohol content had an impact.

Because of how long it is, I have split it into two parts – So here is Part one for you to enjoy.

Play

Part 2 is available Here when your ready to listen to the rest.

Now we also have Two official sponsors to give shouts out  – I’ll mention one in each post.

Sponsor #1

The cool guys at Gogogic (http://www.gogogic.com/) who have released a facebook MMO called Vikings of Thule (http://www.facebook.com/vikingsofthule). They sent us a new poster for the office, as well as some beers called ‘Viking’ & ‘Thule’ that we enjoyed during recording.
