Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #144: Gow seems to not understand the Concept of Time


I am sorry Gow, It was too amusing not to leave that failed start in there.

Aside from misunderstanding on the nature of time, we added a bit more to the confusion mix by having a randomiser control the order of the stories.

Having taken the recording to fortnightly however this left us with a bumper of stories from the Steam Boxes to Playstation Now, World of Warcraft to the Wii U and even some news about the removal of the Online Restriction from SimCity.

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