Drinky Talky Thingy Episode #64: Sometimes I feel like I’m talking to myself

Well I thought it was all going a little too swimmingly when it came to co-hosts.

Over the last few weeks with have had a plethora of guest hosts like Dan & Alec, hell we even managed to get a bit of Craig at the platform 2012 special podcast – it was only natural that this week would go to the other extreme.

For the first time in a while I had to do the podcast solo, everyone else was either ill or otherwise engaged, not that I was going to let that stop me recording but consider yourself warned. I have a habit of talking too fast and sounding very monotone when I’m alone.

That said I still managed to cover most of this weeks gaming news, from the final nail in the coffin of GAME as it officially goes into administration, to the idiots at Ubisoft using tattoo’s for advertising & even throw in some words about the current kick-starter craze, the reboot of GOG & the craziness of EVE.

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