We pretend we do but we really don’t have a clue
From time to time we like to pretend we know what we are doing – don’t worry it won’t last long.
We tried for once to do a few things properly. For example for the first time ever we kept our gobs shut during the title music.
Don’t worry that’s as good as it got, after that we got right back into the usual slapdash mix of news about the WiiU, insulting various developers and generally losing track of the topic at hand.
Anyway all that and much more in this episode of the Drinky Talky Thingy.
