Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #81: Winning Gold Medals for Nonsense!

Hell if I am not getting any sleep tonight I am not going to be alone
Hell if I am not getting any sleep tonight I am not going to be alone

I can’t understand what it is about the Olympics. I really cant stand sports at the best of times but for some reason I am being drawn into it.

Take last night, despite the fact that we were actually mid recording we did turn round and start watching the 200m sprint final.

That aside I think we got a lot of stuff covered in this episode, quite a lot actually as we had two weeks worth of news to go over due to our failure last week. Gow bailed on recording at the last minute and on the rearranged recording.

But we managed to talk a little about the Ouya, about the EA vs Zynga lawsuit and even managed to fit in some Blizzard bashing. All that while still finding the chance to leave anything resembling a topic far far in the distance.

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