Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #84: The one where things were said

Were it not for photographic evidence I would never believe I had ever been this young or skinny
Were it not for photographic evidence I would never believe I had ever been this young or skinny

I am sure you all know how it goes, you have a few beers and all of a sudden you get very opinionated about anything and everything.

Usually the things you get most opinionated about are the things you most certainly know the least about – well that happened this week. For us that thing was politics, but not just any politics – American Politics!

So in advance if we got any of the facts wrong then…deal with it! We will probably have been a fuck of a lot closer that several of your ‘News’ sources are.

Mostly though we did stick to what we know and covered a whole mountain of gaming news, from the bad news about The Secret World to the Apology from Jay Wilson, the Apple court case to the Playstation 4 rumours. Was a pretty eclectic week really.

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