Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #97: Something important happened this week and I’m not quite sure what it was…

Old Computer Games couldn't be won. The just got harder and faster until you died!
Oh the good old days.

Oh Yeah, the Wii U Launched!

However that aside from that, as we covered a lot of that in last weeks late show, pretty much nothing else happened.

Seriously take a look at the set of links after page break and you will find what has to be the smallest set of links that we have ever used to run one of these shows.

Now I say we, by which I mean me.

Yes I am afraid it is another solo effort, Gow was not able to make it round to join in on the recording tonight. We did however go to a pre-launch event for FarCry 3 on Thursday night which turned out to be pretty good and looks like an interesting game.

However of the news that there was, we had a story where the head honcho of Ubisoft talked out of his arse about needing a new generations of consoles to justify a new IP, We had news that Binding of Issac is heading to consoles, An apology from Nintendo for the Day One firmware update & the announcement of a new not so Humble Bundle.

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