There is something strange about podcasting during the daylight hours, even if it is a Saturday being drunk in the afternoon is always odd.

That goes doubly when it is not intended to turn into an all-nighter.

However due to life just simply getting in the way this week, we once again had to push back the recording of the show.

However that gave us plenty of time for stories to roll in, and roll in they did! From the fact that a Judge has finally taken away Tim Langdell’s patent troll powers, to the final sale of THQ IP’s & even some news about how gaming can improve your eyesight.

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