Why the hell does anything still use the FAT32 filing system anymore?

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #119: 4GB Limit my Arse

Why the hell does anything still use the FAT32 filing system anymore?
Why the hell does anything still use the FAT32 filing system anymore?

Apologies to anyone who only listens to the audio version of this podcast, the title of this podcast will not matter to you.

However for the few YouTube viewers and me, Fuck Canon and Fuck the FAT32 file system.

As a result of limitations of that filesystem that I did not know my camera was using only 17 minutes of the podcast has video footage.

But the tech is not why you guys are here is it, its gaming news you are after and we have a pile of stuff. From the X-Box One to the PS4, some Square Enix stuff and even a mention of Zynga, we covered the whole gamut of gaming news and even found time to talk about Ping Pong Shows and American Murder Laws.

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

The good thing about having a wife that can bake - Portal Cookies!!

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #118: Humpty Dumpty has a Fantastic Brewery

The good thing about having a wife that can bake - Portal Cookies!!
The good thing about having a wife that can bake – Portal Cookies!!

Well to say we had two weeks worth of content to cover, I am pretty impressed we managed to cover it all.

Though to be honest one story did dominate much of the news for the last fortnight and that was the X-Box One.

While the console itself saw little fanfare, the chaos around certain aspects such as Pre-Owned, Online requirements & Indie support have caused confusion.

We did manage to find some other news though, from the continuing woes of the Wii U to EA losing the plot a little and even a kickstarter campaign that we might actually be ok with.

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

Podcast Beer Supplies have been replenished

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #115: Still saying the silent T in Oculus

There is something strange about podcasting during the daylight hours, even if it is a Saturday being drunk in the afternoon is always odd.

That goes doubly when it is not intended to turn into an all-nighter.

However due to life just simply getting in the way this week, we once again had to push back the recording of the show.

However that gave us plenty of time for stories to roll in, and roll in they did! From the fact that a Judge has finally taken away Tim Langdell’s patent troll powers, to the final sale of THQ IP’s & even some news about how gaming can improve your eyesight.

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

Wii U Has no Game

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #114: Still finding new ways to fail!

Wii U Has no Game
I really am starting to regret purchasing this thing

I guess I should explain the title a bit.

Regular listeners will be aware that about a month ago we started releasing an Uncut version of the podcast on YouTube.

Now being that we are cheep while we were experimenting with this we are using whatever hardware is to hand.

That means that the video is being captured on a Microsoft life-cam  with tweaked firmware and a opensource video capture program. It’s the only way it would work.

Why is that an issue? Well, there is a tick-box on the video software that activates audio capture, guess what I forgot to tick? As a result our Uncut video was completely recorded in silence.

Thankfully the audio for the normal Podcast recorded properly so it will be salvageable, but all of our rambling about SimCity, our bitching about the Wii U, our discussion on the Pluto and even our positive words about Molynuex were all missing.

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