Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #96: With Great Mustache comes Great Responsibility

With Great Mustache comes Great Responsibility
I could not have put it better myself!

This weeks show as you will notice is a bit late, but in my defense you were warned this might happen from time to time. Work unfortunately got in the way, slightly difficult to record a podcast from half way across the country.

Anyway it did give us a lot of extra stuff to talk about from the addition of Gabe Newell to the AIAS Hall of Fame to the partnership of most of the major Pro-Gaming organisations for the next few years to push forward Pro-Gaming.

But I have to warn you that if you are sick of talk of the Wii U then I suggest you stop listening when you get to the half time song, there were a lot of stories to cover from the information on the USB limitations to interesting comments from certain devs about the systems power – then even news about the profitability of the console.

However what we were not ready for was our first listener question! After months of hearing us take the piss out of Trevor, you will finally get to hear his voice.

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