Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #118: Humpty Dumpty has a Fantastic Brewery

The good thing about having a wife that can bake - Portal Cookies!!
The good thing about having a wife that can bake – Portal Cookies!!

Well to say we had two weeks worth of content to cover, I am pretty impressed we managed to cover it all.

Though to be honest one story did dominate much of the news for the last fortnight and that was the X-Box One.

While the console itself saw little fanfare, the chaos around certain aspects such as Pre-Owned, Online requirements & Indie support have caused confusion.

We did manage to find some other news though, from the continuing woes of the Wii U to EA losing the plot a little and even a kickstarter campaign that we might actually be ok with.

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