Drinky Talky Thingy Episode #72: Gow has an inbred rabbit!

Gow has far too much time on his hands and did this to his rabbit
Gow has far too much time on his hands and did this to his rabbit

Good news! While last weeks podcast may have been a shambles as a result of tiredness and too much Diablo III, this week we seem to have been very much back up to full speed.

Why that is we have no idea, as we had no more sleep and spent no less time on Diablo, but something about this recording just seemed to click.

We talked about Diablo quite a bit in this show as understandably there was quite a lot of gaming news surrounding it, We also caught back up on the fate of 38 Studios and Project Copernicus and we even found some time to declare Bungie idiots for allowing a metacritic clause into their contract.

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