Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #98: Trying desperately not to mention a certain new toy

So many Wii U jokes, So little time
So many Wii U jokes, So little time

I really did try but I am not sure how effective I was.

There is much more to talk about this week than just the new console, particularly as most of the news regarding that console came out when it was released in America.

The first of which is something that we have been waiting to announce for a couple of years now as well!.

The UK government has taken their asses out of their heads for long enough to see that the games industry needs a bit of help to grow in the UK. As well as that there is more bad news about End of Nations, interesting happenings on several Kickstarter project, more news on the THQ bundle and lots and lots of ranting which is much easier to do if there is more than one person.

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