Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #89: It’s cold outside but the beer will fix that!

No this is not a joke, They actually tried to make a red dwarf USA
No this is not a joke, They actually tried to make a red dwarf USA

Last week we were evolving into hipsters, however that seems to have been resolved as we returned directly back to nerd-hood.

Not only were we very excited by the return of Red Dwarf this week, we actually had to stop the recording half way through to watch the show. Catch our opinion on it after the mid point song. That also is a Red Dwarf related track that I am pretty sure that nobody will have heard before – I know I had not!

We did remember however to talk a little bit about games, covering everything from Cliffy B’s departure from Epic Games, the ongoing effort to save City of Heroes, the sales figures for Mists of Pandaria & found some time for YouPorn and Xbox Live. If you want to know how the hell they are connected you will have to listen to the show.

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