Drinky Talky Thingy Episode #58: Sometimes I worry about Gow’s fragile little mind

Sometimes I worry about Gow and the pictures he sends me of penis shaped dogs

Sometimes I worry about Gow and the pictures he sends me

I really do. There are times when he skirts incredibly close to that line between simply being odd and being actually classified as ‘special’. Case in point the image to the right. Now while I will admit it is funny, the sheer amount of glee expressed by my co-host when he showed me it caused a little concern.

However the mental states of the hosts are not why you are here, well not the main reason anyway. Also I cant exactly take the piss to much, I played more of Robot Unicorn Attack: Evolution than any other game this week & left the music on.

The gaming news however is what you are really here for and this week there was a fair amount of stuff for us to get ranty about, which always makes for a good show. This week includes some news on Resident Evil 6, All the news to come out of the Activision Blizzard earnings call (including the latest on WoW’s subscription numbers), Double Fine’s Epic Kickstarter campaign & even some talk about classical music and game endings.

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