Ambulances of all sizes meet at the watering hole after a hard days saving lives

Firstly, I would like to welcome all of our new listeners to the show. Its always nice to officially say hello when we notice a large jump like this week.

Secondly, do let us know what you do and don’t like about the show, were constantly trying to work to improve it. That is why this week we tried a few new things, edited the intro as people had said it was too long, etc.

Some bits of it worked, other bits of it did not. But at least now we can say we tried and moved on.

Other than the experimenting, we managed to get some of the news talked about but my word wasn’t the gaming news depressing this week? Sony losing buckets of money, THQ laying people off all over the world, Bill Roper’s continued employment within the games industry. Its a wonder we didn’t end up in therapy after the show.

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