Drinky Talky Thingy Episode #68: Meandering in the minds of madmen

Just when we thought we were gaining a bit of a following, our ugly mugs went and scared them all away

Well by now you know that our planning for this show goes about as far as selecting some stories, telling Gow to turn up and reminding him he needs to bring beer with him.

This means that what you hear in the podcast is completely unscripted. Sometimes you wouldn’t realise that as we seem like we know what we are talking about – then there are times like this show.We left the main topics so many times during recording that I am not even sure we covered all of the things we had short listed.

I’m pretty sure we managed to cover the God of War VI announcement, I think we managed to get something about Torchlight in there & I hope we managed to squeeze in some talk on Timesplitters 4. However at this point I can not promise anything.

What makes this  a little different to normal is the fact that we left a webcam running for the whole show – so our slow decline into madness is even more documented than usual. Expect that on YouTube as soon as im done editing it.

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