Once again Simpsons called it
Yes I know, another late episode of the podcast. Unfortunately this is likely to be a trend for a few months at least.
For that reason we had far too many stories lined up to cover all of them, so for that reason we pulled it back to just the ones that we thought were most interesting.
Obviously that means that we had to talk about Project Morpheus, the Oculus Rift purchase by Facebook, Molyneux’s latest ramblings & a bunch of the awards for last years games.
Anyway all that and much more in this episode of the Drinky Talky Thingy.
