It was all going so well, my recall of the previous nights recording usually held enough glimmers of information to write this intro. However as is always the way with this podcast the universe has decided to remind me that I am still very much an amateur.
One thing I do remember is my other failure! Last week I forgot to publish a post on the site for people to share their comments on the Talky Thingy, then managed to pick a topic for this weeks that while fascinating was not really much of a discussion starter. To balance that out though I have finally opened up a skype account so that you can get involved in the show directly – Messages you leave on there will be played during the show.
We did cover some of the gaming news as well, Such as the ongoing clusterfuck that is the 38 Studios failure, The epic news that another Zone of the Enders is in the works, The fact that the Tony Hawks Pro Skater HD soundtrack is pretty damn good & even the rumour that Wii U will or will not support the Unreal Engine 4 depending on who’s anonymous tipster you believe.
Anyway all that and much more in this episode of the Drinky Talky Thingy.
