In loving memory of Great Listener as I had to solo this episode

Well it has been a while indeed since the last time we have actually done a solo podcast.

Lately we have skipped weeks where both of us can not make it, however the news this week was just too big to not record something.

From the Bleszinski and has inability to keep his fucking gob shut, to the possibility of Steam adding sharing. There was a lot to cover but this week really has been dominated by the Xbox One news and and eventually its U-Turn on its DRM policy.

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