Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #137: Is Everybody Sitting Comfortably?

Its Super Effective!!
Its Super Effective!!

While it may not sound important to most people, this week saw a bit of a breakthrough. After 3 years of recording Gow finally has a proper chair!

When we started recording the only spare seat I had for him was a broken office chair with no back, and for some reason I never got round to finding him a replacement till now. I wonder how long it will take before he gets his own mic?

However you are here for the gaming news and on that front we had quite a lot to go over after taking last week off. From the Activision buyout finally completing, Wii U sales tripling after a price drop, bad news about both the PS4 & XBox One’s hardware compatibility, Blizzard announcing Heart of the Storm & Even a bit of a laugh at The Sun.

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