Well if the games industry can keep wheeling out that bullshit claim I think we can as well.

I mean its not as if it isn’t true either, you don’t know how the podcast was optimised and thats the point of the cloud, you don’t need to know how its done as long as it is.

No you’re more concerned with the actual output and I have to say that it was a pretty good one.

Gow got a lot more drunk than normal & Paddy was in a far more ranting mood than normal.

It was also helped by the variety of the stories this week ranging from the EA backdown on is Microsoft Ass-Licking at last week’s gamescom, Nintendo completely screwing over its hardcore fans again and the announcement of an X-com Expansion pack.

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