Episode 21: The one where Gow talks. Quickly.

Forever Alone
Gow - Forever alone. Well, at least until next week.

Well it was bound to happen. Paddy jumped ship (plane) and jetted across to the other side of the world leaving a geek with social problems in charge of the podcast… But what could go wrong?

It turns out a solo podcast is a tricky beast. Never again will I ridicule The DrunkenGamer’s monotone ramblings on the solo front, even if it does drone as much to put a caffeine fuelled, ADHD-suffering child to sleep. I hope you all enjoy, enough to make you want to come back next week when things will be back on track and the mighty duo will be back in full force. Note, by mighty duo, I mean myself and the DrunkenGamer – we’re not being replaced.

This week we’ve got a plethora of gaming news. So much more than we’d usually cover, purely for the fact that this podcast is waffle-free. It’s hard to waffle solo. Instead we have nothing but 58 (ish) news articles jammed into a little over an hour. Oh, and a song.

We’re 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 Thing.

  1. Well done Gow – you actually didn’t do to bad for a solo effort.

    The only thing I have to comment on is the fact you didn’t realise that nVidea’s ‘Project Kal-el’ is a superman reference. Kal-el is his original kryptonian name.

    But anyway nice work
