Well we have been preparing for this week for nearly a year now, we knew that when Diablo III finally released my interest in other gaming news would probably be a bit low.

However it seem that our preparations were simply not good enough, despite our best laid plans stories for the show were selected only 20 minutes prior to recording.

This meant that unlike usual where only Gow has no idea about the details of the story – I was not able to fill in while he quickly scan-read the screen to catch up.

Not that we let this stop us recording, instead we stumbled our way through the news about Sega skipping Gamescom, we blagged our way past the subject of Portal 2’s Testing Initiative, We pretended we knew about the fact the Xbox may finally be getting a browser – Oh and I talked about Diablo, A Lot!

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