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.

Really I have nothing else for this - I have no idea what was in this episode

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #145: The Magical Mystery Podcast

Really I have nothing else for this - I have no idea what was in this episode
Really I have nothing else for this – I have no idea what was in this episode

So….Erm…Yeah, This episode, I know nothing about it at all!

Seriously normally I have forgotten a little bit of what was talked about, but this episode I have lost the lot. There is a reason for that, It is the same reason as the episodes are sporadic recently – Work!

Both Myself and Gow have become a lot busier at work recently – We will try and keep them at least semi regular.

Judging from the notes we must have spoken about the the EA Dungeon Keeper mess up, CCP creating both a digital and Physical monument to its players, Nintendo’s plans to salvage their reputation and even the billshit of King.coms trademarking the word Candy.

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

Farewell Hiroshi Yamauchi. While we may never have met you, you profoundly affected all of our lives

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #134: Farewell Hiroshi Yamauchi

Farewell Hiroshi Yamauchi. While we may never have met you, you profoundly affected all of our lives
Farewell Hiroshi Yamauchi. While we may never have met you, you profoundly affected all of our lives

It is never a good week when any member of the industry passes, but I can imagine fewer that have had quite the impact on as many gamers as Hiroshi Yamauchi.

While he stepped down as Head of Nintendo a few years ago, without him they may well still be making trading cards.

Obviously though that was not the only news in gaming circles this week, and the game always continues.

This week we talked about the Rumoured Steam Box, the PS3 to PS4 upgrade Program, the end of Warhammer Online & obviously also some GTA V chatter because it would be impossible not to.

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

Everybody do the dinosaur

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #133: Still Waiting for a Diablo III Offline Mode for PC

Everybody do the dinosaur
Everybody do the dinosaur

Well it certainly has been a while since this happened, but technical faults abound this week.

Apparently when the battery in your camera is running low, it is advised to either charge it before recording or Plug the damn thing in.

That means that for a decent chunk of the show there is no video footage. Instead at the request of Killer Bits you will get a dancing dinosaur.

Despite those issues we still managed to cover the latest news on the PS4, to laugh at some Activision press bullshit and even let Paddy have yet another rant about Diablo III

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

Episode #46: The return of the TurkeySaladBoy

Well another week another episode of the podcast and boy was it a good one – after months of chasing him to come back and join us, we were finally rejoined by the legendary TurkeySaladBoy.

It is always a good laugh to get Craig involved because he brings such a  different take on gaming, being the only one of us that really still works in the industry. It also gives us a new take on some of our old arguments.

Oh, and the reason the podcast picture this week is actually a video – well part way through the show I messed about with the Just Dance 3: Autodance App and made one of the most epic videos of Gow & Craig you are ever likely to see.

Were all still growing Moustaches for Movember so you want to help us in our good cause then you can donate to us for our madness at http://mobro.co/DrunkenGamer.

Anyway on to the podcast and as always links to almost all the topics covered in tonight’s show are available 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 Thingy.

Also for while now listeners have been asking for a way to buy us a beer and help us get drunk for their amusement, well now we have found a way. We have set up an Amazon wish list full of beer and sugary things that you can send to us (trust us were just as funny hyper as drunk). Anyone that does so can send any message with their beer and we will say it in the show. Amazon.co.uk: Drinky Talky Thing

Not entirely sure what PETA were thinking with this advert - I want meat more not less now!

Episode #45: Late to the Party, but still lots of fun!

Not entirely sure what PETA were thinking with this advert - I want meat more not less now!
Not entirely sure what PETA were thinking with this advert - I want meat more not less now!

As you know there would normally be an intro here that was in some way related to something that we said during the podcast however this week we ran late recording, and I had visitors on Friday night – So as I have slept twice since then what was said during the podcast is a complete blur too me.

All I can be certain of is that we talked gaming news, took the piss out of each other, fucked up at some point during recording and got drunk. Seeing as I remember the hangover Friday morning the last one is a certainty.
