Because not even Iwata knows what he is doing anymore
Because not even Iwata knows what he is doing anymore

Ok yes this podcast is well out of date, we are looking forward to the day that life doesn’t keep getting in our way.

That should be soon, for now i’m afraid if you are listening to this you are listening to something that was recorded 3 weeks ago.

To make matters worse it was recorded after a few weeks off due to Paddy being out the country.

That said we debated crowdfunding, talked about the fact that being crap at gaming makes people more violent than the game content, talked about peoples unplayed steam collections and even talked about the 1:1 scale Minecraft map of Denmark.

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