Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #82: How to lose the plot and confuse listeners

"And how would you like the steak..?"
“And how would you like the steak..?”

If we have any listener’s after this episode I will be very very surprised – over the last few weeks the real world has been doing a lot of getting in the way.

Gow is currently homeless due to a less than useless builder destroying his kitchen & I have just started a new role at work that has me travelling a lot. We are not going to let those problems stop us recording episodes though.

Helping raise the confusion level was a sleep deprived TurkeySaladBoy fresh off the boat from Gamescom, while it was good to have him back in the show he is even harder to keep on topic than Gow is. That is something i did not think was possible.

However somehow we managed to get some of the weeks gaming news out there, from the Blizzard servers being hacked to the TERA lawsuit being settled. We even managed fit in some talk about Borderlands 2 Girlfriend mode and even had time to play fanboy again for Playstation Plus.

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