This picture will not make any sense until about an hour into the show


This title and picture will not make much sense until you actually listen to the show, but be assured that even though I made the post this will result in Gow having a bad time.


Good news is that as you can probably tell from the above it was not a solo podcast, in fact I personally think it was one of the best we have recorded in a while.


Testing out a new format where we put nothing but the headlines on the screen unless we need specific details, we rattled off some words about everything from EA double-dipping on Dead Space 3 to another round of insult the analyst.


We are also even more convinced that Gabe has a serious case of the molyneux’s and we even found the time to go all fanboyish about the Wii U & Playstation Plus.


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