Episode #45: Late to the Party, but still lots of fun!

Not entirely sure what PETA were thinking with this advert - I want meat more not less now!
Not entirely sure what PETA were thinking with this advert - I want meat more not less now!

As you know there would normally be an intro here that was in some way related to something that we said during the podcast however this week we ran late recording, and I had visitors on Friday night – So as I have slept twice since then what was said during the podcast is a complete blur too me.

All I can be certain of is that we talked gaming news, took the piss out of each other, fucked up at some point during recording and got drunk. Seeing as I remember the hangover Friday morning the last one is a certainty.

Were both also still growing Moustaches for Movember so you want to help us in our good cause then you can donate to us for our madness at http://mobro.co/DrunkenGamer.

Anyway on to the podcast and 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
