This is what it looks like when Paddy has a good idea

Well the good thing about hosting a regular podcast, the core set of listeners know roughly what to expect.

Lord help any new listeners though, because if they start with this episode they will think this podcast is the demented ravings of a pair of madmen.

However hopefully in between our deranged ramblings we made sure to cover as many of the weeks gaming topics as humanly possible. I think we covered something on the Activision Blizzard sell-off, I am pretty sure we mentioned something about the Steam Summer Sales & Hell I am pretty sure we even talked a little about Deadpool amongst many, many, MANY other things.

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