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.
