So, Last week we tried to do this podcast live, and due to my retardism (having put the fan in backwards in my case causing my pc to overheat) things did not go as smoothly as we would have liked.
So for that reason we agreed that we would do it live again, its only fair as we did say we would.
There is only one word to describe the outcome however: FAIL!
We were live for the first 20 minutes of the podcast before we realised that our sound was not just intermittent – in parts it was just completely absent.
If you want to see that failure we have left it online for all to see over at DrinkyTalkyThing on USTREAM: . Fortunately we did also have the Audio recording software on the go so that at least got recorded, but even that is not without its flaws.
Firstly for some reason, Gow mac decided to record the thing in a higher bit rate than normal, which while sounding like a good thing is actually a pain. Then to cap it off it had only recorded a single channel of sound so the podcast had to be output in mono.
That’s not going to stop us releasing it though, so just bear with us and we will be back up to standard next week (we hope)
Links to almost all the topics we covered are 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 Thing.
