Unfortunatly this is what happens when you get 2 Dans in the same place at the same time
Unfortunatly this is what happens when you get 2 Dans in the same place at the same time

Well this weeks show was a bit of a shocker really.

Firstly we have a bit of an announcement – We will be doing our first special podcast episode, Recording live at Platform 2012 (http://www.platformexpos.com/events/platform-2012/). Details are still to be finalised but when we know which of the bars we will be set up in, we will let you know so you can come and join us.

Secondly our friend Dan, editor of T1, actually turn up to the recording after over a year of saying he would do so (seriously we had a book going on whether he would show up or not).

Gaming news wise, we once again continued to chronicle the downfall of UK retailer GAME, we discussed the possibility of a freemium Blizzard game, Ranted a bit about Day one DLC & even found the time to check out a dating site.

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