Talking Point: What is the most Bizarre Gaming Tie-In Product you have seen?

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 last weeks show – Which game from this generation will you regret not playing?

All of the comments can be found at the links below.

As always we then went on to have a good old fashion natter about this weeks topic which was What is the most Bizarre Gaming Tie-In Product you have seen?

What lead to this topic was my wife returning from holiday with some Angry Bird Jelly Sweets, not that I don’t enjoy gifts but serious why the fuck is that even a thing?

This set us off on quite the rant about the various bits of gaming tat that we have seen of the years, from jelly beans themed on Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine to all the Skylanders toys that are not actually part of the game.

However Gow could not look beyond Angry Birds as apparently he had seen some speakers based on the characters. For me however I really pick one, but if I were forced would have to go with the Word With Friends branded version of Scrabble.

Let us know in the comments below which is you have seen 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.

Good News, Gow has recovered from his Man-Flu so we are back behind the mic as usual.

We may however have to make weeks off more common, I don’t think we have recorded an episode quite this distracted in quite some time.

In between completely losing the plot we did manage to cover some of the gaming news. From the rumours on the Steam Machines Prototypes, to the confirmation that Sonic will in Smash Brothers & even the news on a whole pile of Legal Battles.

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

Talking Point: Which GameWorld would you like to live in and as which Character?

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 last weeks show – Which board games do you play & which do you think we should?

Here are some of the things our viewers suggested

  • Roy Bass – Needs to learn to use Google Translate
  • Mike Lockwood – Wants a Cluedo & Guess Who, but also suggested Mousetrap and Kerplunk
  • Timothy Hassall – Ludo, Risk and Star Wars Monopoly
  • Richard Fellows – Dr who monopoly
  • Adam omc – Settlers of Catan
  • Michelle ‘Shellywoo’ Chatterton – Risk & Monopoly (We Think!?)
  • FireHawkShadowchild – King of Tokyo, Robo Rally, Munchkins and Arkham Horror.

As always we then went on to have a good old fashion natter about this weeks topic which was Which GameWorld would you like to live in and as which Character?

For Gow that meant moving into GTA world as a random member of the public, then realising that given the option to be anyone always be Batman. This was because of the open gameworld leaving him with lots to do.

For Paddy this meant the Sonic Universe, again for the amount of variation in that world leading to lots of things to do – but we did get to see the dark side of the DrunkenGamer as he decided he would be himself, but would depose Robotnik as ruler of the world and kill Sonic.

So, What about it guys & gals?

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 desire it.

Paddy Plays Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed – Shinobi Scramble

After having my ass handed to me by a few races in a row in this episode of Paddy Plays Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed I take on a basic race track in Shinobi Scramble.

The Randomiser this time gave me AiAi who is actually pretty well suited for this track, though I still make a few amateur hour mistakes. Managing to barely scrape in a second place I really need to up my game it seems.

Till Next Video.

Paddy Plays Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed – Snaking Skies

In this Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed video I take on the Ring Race on the track Snaking Skies. I think its safe to say that when it comes to Ring Races – I suck at them.

I probably should have dropped down a difficulty level to be honest and being lumbered with shadow by the randomiser probably didnt help as he is not the best of fliers.

Anyway Till Next Video!

Paddy Plays Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed – Pirate Plunder

In this episode of Paddy Plays Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, I take on Pirate Plunder a Skies of Arcadia based race.

As this is the track that would have allowed me to unlock Danica Patrick, rather that picking a random character I decided to play as her – and did so badly I felt obliged to replay it with a random character afterwards

Till Next Video
