Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #93: The weekend landed and then took off again

My imagination appears to be leaking on to the interwebs, I always thought about this

Its not often that it happens but the observant listener will notice that this podcast is a few days late. Earlier in the year if it had got to Friday without a recording it may have meant skipping a week – however at this stage even if it is late there will be a show weekly.

You see we are barreling headlong towards a goal that I never knew we had a chance of reaching – Episode 100 of the Drinky Talky Thingy! Keeping the show going for this long is not something that ever really crossed our minds at all, but now we are close were damn well going to see it happen.

This week had to be recorded first and we had some interesting things to talk about. First off the bat we had a chunk of news about the Wii U, that was followed by the Disney/ LucasArts deal and wrapped the whole thing up with news about Age of Conan. Partway through the show we did kind of gloss over a topic but the links are still there for you to read all about it for yourself.

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

  1. Naa managed to drag gow out of his hole briefly, if Jo had got back from Leeds sooner I would have called round. Gunna have to catch up some time soon though perhaps one evening during the week?
