Drinky Talky Thingy Episode #53: Why are there so many cute animal clips on YouTube?

We may be hardened gamers, content to bitch-slap our slave-girls till the cows come home but two bunnies in cups are still cute enough to make us go awwwwwww
We may be hardened gamers, content to bitch-slap our slave-girls till the cows come home but two bunnies in cups are still cute enough to make us go awwwwwww

Seriously, why is that? If it’s not these silly bunnies in their cups, then its slow loris and his umbrella, if not that then we have to deal with a turtle and his tomato and finally the whole range of emoticon animals like Dramatic Chipmunk, OMG Cat & WTF Kitty.

At least baby monkey riding backwards on a pig got turned into a game I suppose, which bring me neatly back to why you are here – gaming.

Yes another week has passed bringing with it gaming news of all kinds, which meant it was time for Me & Gow to once again knock back a few beers and have a bit of a chat about it.

This week we once again take pot-shots at Develop for its Bi-Weekly ‘We know this about the PS4/X-Box 720’ post , We doth our cap to a Twisted Metal for recommending rental if your only interested in single player & We laugh at the Daily Fail for its story about Star Wars: The Old Republic – before realising the Paddy is exactly the kind of person they are talking about.

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