Drinky Talky Thingy Episode #75: It’s a MonstaFish kinda episode

Ok, I guess that title need a little bit of explaining. That explanation is simple, I forgot to write this intro directly after recording again and all I can remember about the episode is that right at the start Craig plugged as Windows 7 Phone game called MonstaFish – So consider that a double plug!

The observant amongst you will notice that the name there was Craig not Gow – this is because our favourite little midget has run off on holiday to Thailand, I still think he is off to try his luck with our Thai listeners. Fortunately though for the first time in a while our old friend TurkeySaladBoy was in town and stepped into the co-host seat.

that was very handy as there was still a lot of news to cover, such as a whole pile of leftovers from this years E3, a stack of information on the Wii U, a complete clusterfuck of PR surrounding Tomb Raider and one hell of a case of the Molyneux’s.

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