Drinky Talky Thingy Episode #76: The Lion King Returns

In the jungle, the mighty jungle
In the jungle, the mighty jungle

So moving on from last weeks unfortunate failure, we are back with a new episode of the Drinky Talky Thingy.

With Gow refreshed from a holiday and Myself having had a bit of a break, I have to say that this weeks show is one of the best we have recorded in a while.

When we were not losing track of the topic at hand or having to pause to avoid divulging information of a private nature, we managed to cover an incredible amount of stories in this weeks show.

From a good old rant about tablets such as the Nexus 7 & the Microsoft Surface to taking a pop at Blizzard for royally screwing the pooch on Diablo III, even finishing time to fit in some talk about Wii U & 3DS.

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