Drinky Talky Thingy Episode #69: Live via Satellite from two streets away

I found the Facebook picture of Gows boss, it explains so much

Seriously there is something not right about the people that Gow works with. I have never known an office where so many people are ill so often.

With Gow unable to make it round to my place to record (also I didn’t want his damn plauge) we decided to make use of the technology availible to us, we fired up skype and set to it that way.

Strangely that seemed to keep us a bit more focused as we managed to get quite a bit covered. We were unhappy to debunk last weeks TimeSplitters rumours, We talked a bit about the Diablo III launch event, We covered the confirmation Rayman Legends and briefly touched on the weeks Wii U news.

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