Congratulations Craig on your wedding day, all the best for you and Emma for the future

This episode of the Podcast is dedicated to Craig (aka TurkeySaladBoy) & Emma who, by the time you are reading this, will have tied the knot.

Everyone involved with 8bitalliance wishes them every happiness in their future together, you two deserve each other.

As a result of the pending more important event today this weeks podcast is a little shorter than previous recordings – I deliberately imposed a time-limit, more to stop me drinking as much as usual than the amount we talk.

However as you will hear we still managed to get quite a lot of stories covered. From the Closure of LucasArts and layoffs at Dark Moon Studio to the fact the EA’s idea of Freemium is wrong and the fact that Blizzard now seem to be fixated E-Sports.

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