So here we are, The very first episode of our all new podcast – which for now is being called ‘The DrunkenGamers Drinky Talky Thing’
Well we actually couldn’t think of a name for it so this was Gow’s suggestion from the start of recording.
Being the first week we had no idea how this would turn out, I have to say that it doesn’t seem to have gone too badly.

However as is always the way with us when we have had a drink our conversation wandered into many other areas including debates about Infinity Ward vs Treyarch COD’s, What we would want in the new Arkham Asylum, How older games are so much harder than we remember, and so much more.
