Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #104: Words were said & Bets were made!

I am not going to lie, the intro to this podcast is going to be….well..a little slap dash.

Not only have I completely forgotten what we talked about last night as usual, I am writing in a rush to get this done before I fly out on a much needed holiday.

Now thanks to the pile of links I know some of the things we had planned to talk about at the very least.

Hopefully we had a talk about Cloud Gaming somewhere along the line, Discussed the possible separation of Valve & Steam, Probably poked some fun at retarded american news anchors & looked at the Metacritic best and worst of 2012.

One thing I do remember though is that a bet was made and a whole crate of beer is on the line! The Subject? The PS4, or more specifically its launch date. Gow thinks it will land this year & I think we will have to wait till early 2014 – Only time will tell!

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