Drinky Talky Thingy Episode #54: No time to explain, Get in the Llama!!

Does this really need a caption? Seriously just get in already we need to go!

Does this really need a caption? Seriously just get in already we need to go!

Well in a week where some fairly major sites, this one included, took a stand against the insane SOPA & PIPA legislation only an equally insane post image would suffice.

Added to our love of Llama’s and you get this picture.

However the Llamas as good as they are come second to the gaming, nothing beats gaming in our affections not even our womenfolk!!

This week we managed to cover a great many gaming topics, from the rumours of Resident Evil 6 to the SOPA bullshit, from Project Fiona to Bill Ropers refusal to accept that he hasn’t been involved in a good game since Diablo. We even made time to fit in a discussion about the manliness of the Evony model, though I’m not entirely sure how that entered the conversation.

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