You know, there nearly wasn’t an episode of the podcast this week. Unfortunately both Paddy & Gow managed to get themselves completely distracted by games, and with their fish like memories they forgot to publish the episode after they were done recording.
Paddy is currently lost in SSX, while Gow is so addicted to Draw Something that he had to be told to stop playing it several times during recording. I wouldn’t mind if he could actually draw things properly – I have had some right shockers from him.
However a recording was done and other than our weekly round up of the death of GAME we managed to find the time to cover a whole pile of gamin news. We looked at the DoubleFine Kickstater campaign, debated the benefits of streaming MMO’s & DUST 514, laughed at a game that has a similar name to one we used to work for & debunked the possibility of the next Xbox not having a disk drive.
Also just a reminder, this weekend you will be able come and join in with the show, when we record a live special episode at PLATFORM 2012. We will announce more details as soon as we know them over twitter, but in the meanwhile check out that link and look at the cool stuff that will be going on.
All that and much more in this episode of the Drinky Talky Thingy.
