Drinky Talky Thingy Episode #61: Lager is not a real beer and should be shot on sight

Well 60 weeks in and it finally happened – We finally had a sponsor for the show. Unfortunately that sponsor was our Dutch friend Roy, who insisted we had to drink Grolsh for the whole show (fortunately I eventually talked him down to starting on Grolsh and  finishing on real beer) and I would direct you to the shows headline for my opinion of even that small amount of lager.

That aside it was a good show, Gow was endlessly distracted by the fact that I now have a dog , I was confused by the fact that I had only selected the stories less than an hour before we started recording. Not that we would let such small things stop us recording a show for you guys.

This week we once again continued to chronicle the downfall of UK Retailer GAME, Talked about the Hidden DLC on the disc of Street Fighter X Tekken, nattered a bit about the Assassins Creed III reveal, Argued about the possibility of a Valve ‘Steam Box’ Console and basically flapped our gums about anything and everything  that popped into our radar from the weeks gaming news.

Also just a reminder, in just over a weeks time you will be able come and join in with the show, when we record a live special episode at PLATFORM 2012. We will give announce more details as soon as we know them, but in the meanwhile check out that link and look at the cool stuff that will be going on.

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