So E3 has come and gone but as always that leaves us with far too much news to cover.
That’s why this weeks podcast is pretty much filled with follow-ups, which makes it a shame that unfortunately Gow had to work so couldn’t be here for recording.
That means it’s another speedy run-through of the key articles, just to make sure that you don’t have to go a week without the news.
As always we’re still taking suggestions for the mid podcast songs. So if you have a suggestion for song to be included in the podcast then put it in the comments of this post or send them too @DrunkenGamer or @D_Gow . They will be put on the short-list and you will be mentioned in the podcast itself when played.
