Episode #52: Start as you mean to go on

It seems that in our hands even the kids game Guess Who, can be turned into a drinking game. Cant wait for the next games night!

Well it is now officially 2012, the year when its all supposed to end if your one of those idiots that buy into the whole Mayan calendar bullshit.

The world will not end, I promise you. Mayan Calenders go way beyond 2012 for a start (in fact there is little evidence of one that stops there) but inferring end of the world from a calender – why you may as well use Dec 31st every year!

However, that’s not why you are here is it?

Well you will be happy to hear that a podcast was recorded and as much as things change, mostly they stay the same

This week saw our old friend Craig ‘TurkeySaladBoy’ Albeck taking on the role of co-host via skype from all the way down in London.

Gow is still having to take some time out from recording to look after his better half, but you will be happy to hear she is on the road to recovery. We wish her all the best.

But even though we were not in the same room, Craig & I managed to get quite a lot of the last weeks gaming news covered – things like the SOPA bullshit, The Ocean Marketting retard, New Wii U Appstore Rumors & a lot more besides.

Anyway enjoy this episode of the Drinky Talky Thingy.
