Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #125: We need to learn to leave well enough alone

I think part of the reason we still only have a small listener ship is down to our lack of consistency.

Every time we get into a bit of a groove our curiosity gets the better of us and we want to try something new. This week it was a new recording in a new location, well if you can call the sofa a new place.

This came with a downside we didn’t think about – timekeeping. We ended up recording for a lot longer than we intended, but worry not this is not a return to the 2hr long shows.

But at least the extra meant we could get a lot covered in this show, from pro gamers being classified as athletes by the us visa system, the daily mail sinking to an all new low, Ubisoft not wanting to start a new IP unless it can be franchised and even the news of the Valve Pipeline project.

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