Wish You Were Here: End of Nations

[singlepic id=154 w=320 h=240 float=right]Wish You Were Here is my version of photo-blogging for want of a better description, each month for the last year I have jumped into games that are in beta or newly released and taken a few screenshots. This is to help people get a view on what they are missing out on.

This one is from back in July after I returned from an early Pre-Alpha press preview of a MMO-RTS called End Of Nations.

Now its not very often I do this, but this month is going to have to be one of those rare occasions where I use screenshots taken by other people. However its for a good reason.

Because the game was in a Pre-Alpha state when I saw it last week, I was not allowed to take shots myself, but the guys a Trion were kind enough to give us a whole pile of screen so that you guys can check out the game in its current state as well.

Wish You Were Here: Diablo III Beta

[singlepic id=23 w=320 h=240 float=right]For a while now I have planned on re-running certain pieces of my content from Thirteen1.com here on my personal blog as well. You will already have noticed the Drinking games popping up for the last year, well now its time for one of my other regular features to start migrating.

Wish You Were Here is my version of photo-blogging for want of a better description, each month for the last year I have jumped into games that are in beta or newly released and take a few screenshots. This is to help people get a view on what they are missing out on.

My first one is from the Diablo III Beta and was originally published in Issue #43 of Thirteen1 Magazine


The Lord of Destruction may well have been destroyed, but that does not mean all is well in Tristram. This month saw the beta of Diablo III start and me return to the troubled land. As always, I gave it a play with one finger hovering over the screenshot button and here are the results.

However, I went one step further this month and fired up fraps. Those videos can be seen here, Diablo III Beta Witch Doctor Playthrough – YouTube and below is the gallery of screenshots taken during that playthrough. Enjoy!

Episode #38: DrunkenGamer is an idiot!!

Gow has developed a near sexual fascination with Llama's, I think I may need to get him some help!

Right time for a bit of honesty – we really are not in any way, shape or form professional when it comes to these podcasts. Though for any repeat listeners this is probably common knowledge by now.

The reason I mention that in this cast is that even after 38 episodes, I am still not even sure what we called the damn thing.

For all this time in all the posts and mentions of it I have been refering to it as the Drinky Talky Thing, yet apparently verbally in the podcast itself Drinky Talky Thingy is its name.  Admittedly its only a very subtle difference, but it is important none the less.

But the good news is that from here on in I will know the correct name and refer to it as such in all forms.

Anyway 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
