Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #80: The cake is not a lie, its a nuisance!

This was the cause of many distractions during this show
This was the cause of many distractions during this show

In this podcast more than any of the others you will get to hear Jo, the long-suffering wife of the DrunkenGamer.

The reason for that is that she enjoys making cakes and is pretty damn good at it so a lot of people ask her to make them. unfortunately nothing seemed to be going right for her with this cake and you will hear the nightmare unfold.

Aside from the cake we did however do some talking about games. We finally defined Molyneux’s syndrome due to Gabe Newell running his mouth about Windows 8, we got confused by the open platform console getting an exclusive game and slipped back into the 90’s as we talked over the impending move to a software only company for Nintendo.

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