Drinky Talky Thingy Episode #65: Gow was a founder of The Beatles!

So it seems Gow has a time machine - clearly that means the podcast must become incredibly popular or he would have packed it in by now

Seriously the picture for this podcast has freaked me out completely. Taken from a set of pictures of celebrities before they were famous, that is quite clearly Gow right there in the middle of the original Beatles line up.

Once we were done trying to work out how the hell that could be possible, its a toss up between Gow being a time-traveller or he is the illegitimate love-child of Paul McCartney, we set back to the regular business of  recording a podcast.

We tried to cover as much of the gaming news as we could managing to fit in our take on all the next gen console rumours, gloat a little about having called the Wii U a natural home for MMO’s ages ago, laugh a little at the output of MolyJam & be amazed by the fact that the original Prince of Persia source code has been found. We even managed to, for what is hopefully the last time, cover the continuing saga of GAME – who have been saved finally.

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