Drinky Talky Thingy Episode #66: If there was a plot we have no idea where we left it

Ok, so we make no illusions that we are the most organised or professional of podcasters.

This week though we seemed even more distractable than normal – I lost count of the number of times the show and the planned topics parted directions in the end. Sometimes it just seemed to be easier not to try and get back to what we were originally talking about and just move on.

Now along the way I believe we managed to cover the fact that EA were voted the worst company in america, we may have stumbled onto the topic of the Diablo 3 reveal site, I’m pretty sure we at least in passing mentioned the Wasteland 2 hitting its kickstarter target & somewhere along the way we must have mentioned the £850 collectors edition of Resident Evil 6.

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