Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #86: The Dutch invasion has begun!

You may remember this look on your parents faces. You know in that memory you had suppressed until just now

You know last week we were complaining that the podcast may be getting a bit long again. You would have thought that we might have tried to do something about that.

You would be wrong – this weeks show is even longer than our usual rambling and I have only myself to blame for that. I didnt want to rush any of the news as there was a lot to cover about some of my favorite topics.

Warcraft, Wii U, Valve, Marvel Heroes they all got a mention in this weeks show. There was even time for new Microsoft rumors and one of the most retarded patents ever.

To make it a bit of different episode we did however have something new, we had our first listener take part in the show! Our Dutch friend Roy, aka Nezerith, who has been in MMO guilds with me since the very early days of WoW was over visiting and decided to come and join in.

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