Well last weeks show was a bit of a monster wasn’t it!

We didn’t plan for nearly 3 hours, it just kinda happened. This week however we did plan for it to be a little shorter than normal to balance it out a bit.

This plan was helped by the fact that Gow had some prior arranged events that he needed to be at, so this is our first solo recording of the year.

So I had a bit of a ramble on my own about the latest Nintendo Direct, ranted a bit about the games are evil debate, talked about the THQ sale in chunks and even found a little time to laugh at an analyst again.

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