Drinky Talky Thingy Episode #56: Some of us are getting old indeed

Yes, The DrunkenGamer was once a member of the mushroom kingdom
Yes, The DrunkenGamer was once a member of the mushroom kingdom

Yes, as I write this intro the clock has crossed the midnight mark so the DrunkenGamer is now officially another year older. This is something that I am not all that happy about, but its not like I can do much about so I will not dwell on it. All I will do is point to the shows Amazon wish list linked below.

Getting onto the point it was another great week for gaming news, so much so that our aim to keep the show down to less than an hour is failing badly. We will not give up though, perhaps next week we will do better.

In our defence there was a lot of stuff we needed to talk about, from the updated information on the Wii U Network & technical information to the fact that Zynga are still ripping games off faster than people removing a plaster, Everquest going free to play to Facebooks IPO. Sure there was also the usual off topic bullshit, such as Gow’s attempted at jingles and distractions caused by Oreo Chocolate Fudge Brownies – all this without proper internet access due to DrunkenGamer having reached his bandwidth cap for the month.

I do want to get in writing that I part way through the show made a bet/promise – if the Wii U is not re-branded as the NES or NESR ( NES Revolution) by the time it is officially released, I will donate and extra £10 to childsplay charity when it comes back round at the end of the year.

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