Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #117: Members of the New Hero Hotline

If it wasn't for the videos, some people might even think Gow was a figment of my imagination

I don’t know if anyone reads these intros, but if you do be warned that this is one of the more random episodes we have recorded recently.

I think we must have spent at least 10 minutes on the Hero Hotline alone, which kinda spiralled out of control while talking about the new Scribblenauts game.

For the rest of the weirdness, well you will just have to listen to the show.

It was however been a good news week, from EA announcing that it was scrapping Online Passes to Sony scrapping some developers fee’s & even Gow getting very excited about the glorified spreadsheet Gran Tourismo getting its 6th incarnation.

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